New Electric Cars 2020: These Models Will Hit The Market This Year
From 2021 it will be really expensive for manufacturers of climate-damaging cars. Then an average limit of 95 grams of CO2 per kilometer applies, below which 95 percent of your newly sold cars must come. The carmakers want to balance their CO2 balance wi th e-cars and are bringing a whole range of new models onto the market this year. Smart Eq Fortwo Smart has revised the electric Fortwo and given it an external facelift, a more modern interior and a better infotainment system. The electric drive train remains the same. This also applies to range and performance: the Smart delivers 160 kilometers and at least 82 hp Mini Cooper Se BMW will finally bring the first electric mini in 2020. The little Brit has always been primarily a city car. The electric version Mini Cooper SE comes with a standard range of 270 kilometers. For the city this is lush, at best it is still average on the long haul. The E-Mini offers just as much space and power as the sporty Cooper S as a petrol engine. The Mini should be available from dealers from March or you can contact Auto For Trade Honda E With the mini compact car "Honda e", Honda brings its first all-electric car onto the market. The vehicle impresses with unconventional details, high-quality workmanship and good driving behavior. At 220 WLTP kilometers, the range is designed for the city and the surrounding area, but the small electric Honda charges enough electricity for 140 kilometers on the 100 kW fast charger in half an hour. Opel Corsa-E In the spring, Opel will bring the electric version of its small car classic. The Corsa-e uses the same drive technology as the Peugeot e-208: its performance data are almost identical. Only the standard range of 330 kilometers is ten kilometers below the Peugeot. But the electric Corsa is a little cheaper. Opel and Peugeot also differ in the interior. Peugeot E-2008 Peugeot's electric compact SUV, the e-2008, shares the 136 hp electric drive with the smaller 208, but only achieves a standard range of 310 kilometers with the same battery. With the 100 kW fast charger, the e-2008 charges an empty battery to 80 percent in half an hour. The e-2008 has enough space for four passengers and not too big luggage. Tesla Model Y With the Tesla Model Y, Tesla is delivering a small electric SUV, a mini-Model-X, so to speak - and possibly as early as spring. Technically, the Model Y is based on the successful electric compact sedan Tesla Model 3, so the battery and the motors are familiar from the sedan. The range should be slightly below that of the streamlined Model 3. You can already pre-order the Model Y. Contrary to rumors to the contrary, according to the Tesla configurator, production for German customers will not start until the beginning of 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E One of the hottest competitors of the Tesla Model Y is Ford's first electric car, the compact SUV Mustang Mach-E. The basic Mach-E should cost 46,900 euros and be able to cover 450 kilometers according to the WLTP standard. The rear-wheel drive basic version is 258 hp. The fast E-Mustangs sprint from zero to 100 km / h in less than 7 seconds. With a charging capacity of 150kW, they are also fast when it comes to power consumption. The electric Mustang should be available from dealers from the end of 2020 and can already be reserved. Mazda MX30 With the MX 30, the Japanese car maker Mazda is bringing its first fully electric car. The focus of the Japanese is less on crazy ranges or blatant performance, but on a special driving experience and sophisticated design. The doors do not have a B-pillar and open in opposite directions. With a range of around 200 kilometers and 143 hp, the MX30 is not a highway racer, but rather feels at home in the city and the surrounding area. There his balanced driving characteristics and powerful 265 Newton meters of torque come in handy. Mazda believes in the success of its electric debut - especially in Germany. Mazda wants to sell 2,500 MX 30s in 2020. But they like to leave the really large mass market to competitors like VW with the electrical specialist ID.3. Volvo Xc40 Recharge Pure Electric The Swedish-Chinese car manufacturer Volvo will also present its first fully electric vehicle in 2020. The XC40-Recharge will then complete the range of mild and plug-in hybrids from Sweden. The electric XC-40 comes with two electric axles and over 400 hp. A 78 kWh battery should provide ranges of "over 400 kilometers". The strong Swede should be able to sprint from zero to 100 km / h in under five seconds. At 180 km / h, Volvo locks its cars electronically. This also applies to the XC40 Recharge. The maximum charging power is 150 kW. The prices and the start of the market are not yet known. Production is expected to start in autumn 2020. Lexus UX 300e Toyota enters the electric car segment from above and delivers the UX300e, an E-SUV from its luxury forge Lexus. Outwardly, the SUV is almost completely similar to the conventional UX300 with hybrid or pure gasoline drive. The electric drive should deliver a good 200 HP of power, 300 Newton meters of torque and juice for a range of 400 kilometers from a 50kWh battery. This makes the Lexus good, but not overly motorized. He reached the 100 km / h mark in just under seven seconds. The Lexus UX 300e should be available from mid-2020. Prices and all technical data are not yet known Audi Q4 E-Tron The Q4 e-tron was presented at the Geneva Motor Show 2019. The new E-Audi has been produced in Shanghai since the end of 2019. From a purely visual point of view, the new Audi Stromer is strongly reminiscent of the classic e-tron - but you can also see its relationship with the ID family from Volkswagen and the Skoda electric study Skoda Vision IV. In terms of size, with a length of 4.59 meters, it is exactly between the Audi SUV Q3 and Q5 with a length of 4.48 and 4.66 meters, respectively. At the Geneva Motor Show, Audi showed an all-wheel drive version with 304 hp. The electric Q4 only needs about 30 minutes to charge the battery - it is charged with 125 kilowatts. If the batteries in the floor of the vehicle are fully charged, up to 500 kilometers can be covered. The 82 kWh battery installed in the Geneva concept car provides enough power for a range of 450 kilometers. Mercedes EQV Mercedes confidently calls the new EQV "electric MPV". The newest member of its growing electric family is more of a fully electric family van than a classically elegant sedan. This can also be seen in the targeted target group: Not only shuttle services and hotels should be addressed, but also eco-families and other environmentally conscious people. However, the market launch is not until spring 2020. The EQV comes off the same line as Mercedes combustion vans. Its electric drive delivers 204 hp and enough juice for a range of around 400 kilometers. This would make the EQV an attractive alternative even for private users who want to travel longer distances or even go on vacation in a van. There should also be no lack of space in the EQV: the electric V-Class is up to 5.37 meters long. The Swabians do not reveal a price yet, but the van should not be available for less than 60,000 euros. Bmw Ix3 Seven years after the start of production of the first electric BMW, the compact Stromer i3, the electric SUV iX3 is due to hit the market in 2020. Like the Audi e-tron Quattro and Mercedes EQC, the iX3 is based on an existing brand platform: unlike the i3 and the upcoming next, the iX3 shares many components with the X3. It will roll off the production lines at the new plant in Shenyang, China, together with the combustion engine and the remaining plug-in hybrid versions of the popular SUV. The raw materials for the battery should come from guaranteed fair and environmentally friendly production from Australia and Morocco. Compared to Audi and Daimler, BMW has installed a significantly smaller battery pack: BMW promises 74 kilowatt hours of net capacity, around 15 percent less than the competition. The range should still be at eye level. The manufacturer promises 440 kilometers. According to the WLTP standard, the consumption of the car should be less than 20 kilowatt hours per 100 kilometers. For a range of 440 kilometers, the iX3 would have to consume around 17 kWh per 100 km. Porsche Taycan The Taycan (the "c" is pronounced like "k") was often traded as a Tesla hunter. This advance praise was entirely justified. Even if the comparison with the basically seven-year-old family sedan Tesla Model S may be a bit unfair, the Taycan still proves to be an electric car that is more dynamic in terms of driving dynamics. That even earned him the coveted title of "German Car of the Year". So that the rapid journey doesn't end too early, the Taycan can quickly charge with up to 270 kW on the motorway. The current top version "Turbo S" - the technically nonsensical "Turbo" designation is traditionally retained by Porsche - is supplemented by other, cheaper models such as the Taycan 4 S.
