D.ie increase in E-car premium and the stricter CO2 limits are increasing the demand for electric cars. A development that will benefit the environment in the long term and that at least the federal government and industry would like to see. At the same time, the selection of vehicles with purely electric drives has also increased. Some car manufacturers will present their first Stromer in 2020, while others are expanding their e-fleet with several new models. For example, Ford is bringing its first electric model onto the market with the Mach E. Tesla, on the other hand, plans to complete its S3XY product range with the Model Y. In this context, a side note: Elon Musk must have been annoyed that Ford snatched the model letter E from under his nose and that Tesla had to name its mid-range Stromer Model 3 as a result.

- Electric car offer: There are currently 24 e-car models for comparison on the new car platform Carwow.
E-Cars 2020: New Models and Availability
The electric motor of the e-2008 SUV from Peugeot gets down to business. That the French company has full confidence in its built-in battery with all charging and discharging is proven by the proud guarantee period of eight years or a maximum of 160,000 kilometers. This means that Peugeot grants more guarantee on the battery than on the entire vehicle, which expires after two years. The market launch was at the end of February 2020 and the delivery time is around six months.
Quick, comfortable and comparatively expensive, the SUV coup e-tron Sportback from Audi avoids environmentally harmful CO2 emissions. With 300 kW boost power and a range of up to 446 kilometers according to the WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure), the all-electric premium SUV is available in 13 paint finishes. The market launch was in April 2020 and the delivery time is currently three months.
The range of the practical electric city car from Honda is 200 kilometers on average. The almost one meter wide fully digital display is impressive. It transports all information about the vehicle and extends in front of the driver and front passenger on a dashboard with a wooden look. The market launch was at the end of April 2020 and the delivery time is five to six months.
The electric motor in the Cooper SE comes from the BMW i3, but the power does not get onto the road with the rear-wheel drive but with the front-wheel drive. And that with very good traction. Its 184 hp and 270 Nm push the mini-runabout to 100 km / h in 7.3 seconds and that immediately and without gear changes. In order for the battery to last its promised 270 kilometers, the fun is over at 150 km / h. The market launch was in March 2020, the delivery time should be eleven months.
E-cars: fast and expensive variant
The car manufacturers do not only value clean air in city traffic, in the future there will also be electric progress in the left lane on the motorways. Sports car manufacturer Porsche shows with its electric speedster Taycan where the journey is going. The 761 hp car sprints from 0 to 100 km / h in under three seconds. The customer has to make a six-digit Smmchen for this. The range sounds measly at around 380 kilometers in view of the price. But the ratio of range to price is also worse. Automobili Pininfarina will present its Battista hypercar in 2020. The bolide reaches the 300 km / h mark in under twelve seconds, top speed should be over 400 things. The maximum output is over 1,900 horse power. However, the price is more than stately at just under 2 million euros and the range of almost 500 kilometers with one battery charge is rather poor.
