Electric cars arriving in 2019
If you follow the engine press regularly, you you will have had enough of hearing 2019 as the year in which such and such a model that will mark a milestone in history will finally be launched. Well, leaving marketing phrases aside, what is clear is that 2019 is going to be the year of electric cars .
That's why, here we leave you all the models moved solely by electricity that will arrive during the new year. The houses want to prove that Tesla is not the only one capable of manufacturing electrical products with good autonomy, loading speed and performance. And what is most interesting of all, not only will supercars be within reach of a lucky few . They will also carry several with a more suitable price to the pocket of an average buyer.
The only reason why the Audi e-tron is on this list is because it is already late. It was supposed that its arrival in the market was going to be in 2018, but it was postponed due to problems with the software . According to the German brand, the first deliveries are expected in Spain in the first quarter of 2019 .
This large SUV has a 95 kWh batteries That is, almost the same as a Tesla Model X 100D. Thanks to them you can travel 400 km on a single charge according to the WLTP cycle. A somewhat short autonomy compared to the American, which may be due to its high weight of 2,565 kg and its shape close to that of an all-terrain.
Despite This tonnage, the e-Tron can move with ease thanks to its two asynchronous motors of 184 and 224 HP. With them it achieves a combined power of 408 HP, so it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds and reach 200 km/h of top speed. Its price in our country part of 82,400 euros.
This is one of Mercedes' most anticipated innovations and will arrive in June 2019. The EQC will be a competitor Direct from Audi e-tron. It will have the same 408 HP of power although with slightly different features and autonomy on paper. First, they announced a range of 450 km with a single load , using the tests of the old NEDC cycle. However, considering that it weighs practically the same as the e-tron (2,500 kg) and that its battery is only 80 kWh, it is very possible that it is below 400 km with WLTP measurements . Although time will tell, since this fact is affected by other factors such as energy management through software or aerodynamics.
The EQC is equipped with an onboard charger water cooled with a capacity of 7.4 kW, but can also be charged with up to 110 kW if a fast charging station is used. In terms of performance, you have to settle for a maximum speed of 180 km/h, 20 km/h less than the Audi. But what is above is acceleration , since it only needs 5.1 seconds to reach 100 km/h from a standstill.That slump, in terms of electric mobility, has come to an end in the hands of its subsidiary, with the Mini Electric 2019 . Year in which the German brand will begin its manufacture and, theoretically, its sale to the public.
We have not yet seen the production version of the vehicle, but Mini has been launching concepts electric since a few years ago. It is expected that the one you can see in the photo is the most similar to the car that will end up arriving at street level.
Regarding its specifications, we still do not know much. It is estimated that its autonomy is around 240 km with a single load, so it is designed more for urban transport than for other, more demanding conditions. Hopefully that will be reflected in the price, since other brands are making more serious efforts to get more versatile cars.
BMW i3 2019
As we have told you, BMW has been something lazy in the launch of electrics. But what it has taken the trouble to do is frequently update your i3 . The same thing is going to happen again in 2019, but with more important changes than in other occasions.
For example, this electric car will have new cells of 120Ah , which together will form a 42.2 kWh battery . With it you can travel a distance of up to 310 km according to the WLTP emission cycle . Which means that it improves its autonomy by approximately 30%, with respect to the current version. The price it will have is still unknown, but it is expected to be only slightly higher than its predecessor.
With the arrival of the i3 with a 42.2 kWh battery, BMW has halted production of the i3 REX. This is because the autonomy of the new electric of the German brand, is very similar to the old version of 33.2 kWh with the Range Extender (REX). And that does not use an explosion engine to charge the battery and increase its range.
Nissan Leaf 2019 60 kWh
As with the BMW i3, we are not talking about a new generation, but the Nissan Leaf is also going to receive an update significant enough to be on this list. Its package of 60 kWh batteries has been mentioned for several years, and will finally arrive during 2019.
With these more capable batteries, the Leaf promises to surpass 400 km of autonomy and even has spoken that could reach 500 km . If so, it would become the first long-range electric car with a relatively affordable price. At least, much more than a Tesla Model 3 with its price in Spain. The official price is not yet known, but since the brand has already announced that it will have a price of about 5,800 euros more than the battery version of 40 kWh capacity .
The Porsche Taycan is possibly the most anticipated electric vehicle of 2019 . There are several reasons for this. On the one hand, it will introduce the 800-volt system, which is the fastest charging system to date. On the other, for its tremendous performance at the height of a German sports march as is Porsche.
Apart from the very fast charging system, it is expected that this car has a range close to 500 km depending on the NEDC cycle (could be around 400 in WLTP).Its power exceeds 600 HP, which accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and reaches 200 km/h before 12 seconds. Its price will be around 100,000 euros.
Kia Niro EV
The Hyundai Kona EV has already reached dealerships and the Kia Niro EV is very similar. For something belong to the same business group. However, it is another more to add to the list of electric cars of 2019. The brand says that in Europe, this car will be equipped with "a package of lithium batteries with 64 kWh capacity" , which can be quickly loaded by a supercharger of up to 100 kW. Its single electric motor located on the front axle will yield 204 hp and 395 Nm of torque. Thanks to this "you can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds".
Like Kona Electric, you will also have a more economical version with a "39.2 kWh lithium battery pack. , thanks to the one that will have an autonomy of 300 kilometers with a single load ". The 64 kWh version is expected to reach the 400 km autonomy . Its price will be around 28,000 euros for the most basic.
Volvo XC40 electric
The new Volvo XC40 has been very well received in the compact SUV segment and now the automaker has confirmed that earlier this year plans to manufacture a fully electric version . Since most of the electric SUVs that reach the market are larger or more premium (see the Mercedes EQC or Audi e-tron), it should have a more affordable price.
Unfortunately, still > Not much is known about the Volvo XC40 electric . Only Volvo's latest CUV platform was built from scratch to support several types of thrusters, including a fully electric one. It is expected that exceeds 320 km of autonomy .
The German start-up e.Go is going to start manufacturing the Life in March 2019 and surprisingly start delivering it the following month, if everything goes according to plan. It is a company that has nothing less than ZF Friedrichshafen behind. Known for being the manufacturer of many components of cars, such as gearboxes for BMW and Porsche.
It is urban low cost for four people. Its size is very contained. Similar to a Seat Mii. The most basic of its versions is called e.Go Life 20 and carries a battery of only 14.9 kWh with a 27 HP engine. Its autonomy is of a modest 121 km, which is sufficient for transportation in the city. Its price is 15,900 euros . The next version is the e.Go Life 40, which is worth 17,400 euros . Its battery is somewhat larger and its propellant yields 54 HP, with which it achieves a range of 142 km. The top version of the range is the e.Go Life 60, which has a larger battery and a motor with a few negligible 80 HP (for city). Its autonomy is the largest of all the versions because it reaches up to 184 km. Its price is 19,900 euros .
And what about the Faraday Future FF91?
When the electric car of Faraday Future was presented in 2017, its creators and dared to anticipate that their deliveries would begin in 2019 .Going through the risk of bankruptcy, the recovery thanks to an injection of 1,700 million, to return to the risk of bankruptcy currently living. For now your destination is uncertain and you have a short period of time to find new financing.
Currently the number one investor of Faraday Future is Evergrande Health Industry Group Limited. The problem of Faraday Future, is that this Chinese giant did not allow it to look for more investors to increase its financing. However, this block has been lifted recently to not end his disappearance. Now it remains to be seen if Faraday Future is able to attract enough capital in a sector in which electric car brands are constantly proliferating. You only have to see how companies like Tesla, NIO, BYTON, e.GO, Lucid are progressing.Like it or not like it, electric cars are here strong> and they are here to stay. Soon it will not hurt to know how they actually work to get the right one. For that reason, do not miss the article of Actualidad Motor about its operation and parts. You may know what the camshaft or the pistons are, no longer important before you think about it. You may be interested
