Top 4 Electric Cars
Electric cars are making big waves in the automobile world. They noise-free, pollution-free and fuel savior, so if you are interested in a hybrid or an electric vehicle to save gasoline, have a look at our choice of top 4 Electric Cars…
Tesla Model 3
The Model 3 is Tesla’s answer to the all-electric 3-series, that doesn’t exist yet… the 0-60 time of 5.1 seconds has supposedly been beaten by one of the lucky few who got their car on time, a huge bottleneck in production has slowed the process down, this is yet to be confirmed but the car does also boast a range of up to 310-miles for the larger battery pack option. Over 400,000 people have placed a deposit so any orders placed now are unlikely to be filled before the end of this year or even 2019. Despite production issues, Musk was eager to announce that a performance edition is coming and even told us it’d be here for 2018; a bold statement from the billionaire.
“This is the best EV that I have seen ever, it looks slick, looks to perform well and created by the best in the business” – added Kyle of Saxon Bridge motors
At the 2018 CES convention In Las Vegas Fisker announced their newest all-electric car. Unlike their failed Karma, this option doesn’t rely on a battery extender to reach a claimed range of 400 miles, this is made possible by a lithium-ion battery that will put Fisker at the forefront of battery technology. They also announced that they’re working on a solid-state battery, this could potentially take cars well over the 500-mile mark on a single charge. This battery system provides 2.5 times the energy held in a standard lithium-ion battery whilst also reducing the possibility of overheating.
Audi has said that they’ve held back on producing a fully electric vehicle until the battery technology was able to provide a range of more than 300-miles. The E-Tron will be Audi’s first fully electric car then, with a range estimated to be around 310 miles and resemble the E-Tron Quattro concept seen at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015. The decision to make an SUV rather than a saloon takes it out of the firing line of the Model 3 from Tesla and into the same group as the Tesla Model X and Jaguar I-Pace.
This car is designed, developed and produced all inside the USA; a rare occurrence. The car is driven by state of the art batteries to power the electric twin motors culminating in more than 800BHP. This results in a world record-breaking car, as this is the first electric car to break the 200MPH benchmark! The EV is offered in a manual and automatic, an option not seen in this market. Genovation claims that in normal driving conditions it can deliver a range of more than 175 miles; what constitutes as normal in an 800BHP, 200MPH EV is anyone’s guess however.
