Road Ev's exceed 200mph
Electric Vehicles are leading the charge to become the fastest road vehicles around. It is becoming very common that new EV's are going to exceed 200mph. Speeds around this mark and more are even faster than the current vehicles in the Formula E series.
In the top 10 list of fast accelerating road vehicles includes no less than 3 EV cars and this number looks set to increase over the next few years, especially with even more high performance vehicles being released, including Volkswagen's ID Range.
Increasing performance of today's 'everyday' production EV's
In the modern day, mass production of electric vehicles are able to reach high levels of performance. In acceleration terms, the top 10 EV's have been recorded to meet industry standard 0-62mph in 9.6 seconds. That comparable to a range of existing ICE driven vehicles.
Ready. Set. Go!
Although EV's are still developing, there is one thing that is clear and that is that there is not much difference between them and ICE vehicles. One area they do excel at would be a standing start against an ICE. When an EV drives away from a traffic light, road junction or even a roundabout the power is released direct from the motor to the wheels meaning that the power is delivered quickly and more efficiently. This is definitely one positive aspect that EV owners like.
Buckeye Bullet flying the fast EV's flag
For true EV speed, then look no further than the record breaking Buckeye Bullet. In September 2016 it reached ground breaking speeds of 342.144mph. Following this, further attempts would eventually see it break the 400mph mark. EV technology has come along way in such a short space of time, especially considering the Sinclair C5 in 1985.
The value stability of electric vehicles depends primarily on two factors: a competitive range and the durability of the battery. In both cases, you can sit back and relax in the new ID.3.
On the one hand, the ID.3 offers much longer ranges than most previous electric vehicles, making it suitable for everyday use and ensuring that it remains competitive for years to come. On the other hand, all ID. models come with a battery guarantee for eight years or 160,000 km.
On the whole, we are expecting your ID.3 to reach the same residual value as a similar combustion engine vehicle in future.
All in all, the overall costs for an ID.3 are expected to be at the same level as a comparable combustion engine vehicle – or even lower. Thanks to attractive prices and leasing instalments, expected government funding, good residual values and lower maintenance costs.
On top of that, you get to feel good about making an important contribution to the environment, which is not only good for you but, above all, generations to come.
