The First Electric Car For The Masses


General Motors just beat Tesla Motors in the race to produce a truly affordable electric vehicle with triple-digit range. Moments ago, GM CEO Mary Barra unveiled the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt at CES, providing the first look at what may be the most significant vehicle the automaker has built in decades. The little EV may look like just another five-door compact, but two figures make it an engineering masterstroke: 200 and 30,000. That first number is its range: 200 miles on a fully charged battery.

  • The History Of The Electric Car

    This is Tesla’s moment. It wasn’t the Roadster, nor the Model S, nor the Model X — it’s the Model 3 that matters, the practical EV for the masses that Elon Musk intended to eventually be able to make all along. This car has been a solid decade in the making. But somehow, it all feels a little anticlimactic. It’s not that the car isn’t awesome.

  • Volkswagen ID.3 Design at 2019 IAA

    Volkswagen and its customers launched into a new era of environmentally friendly mobility and will showcase the fully electric ID.3 at IAA 2019. The first model from the MEB product line for electric vehicles demonstrates a CO2-neutral balance and impresses with the high levels of driving dynamics characteristic of electric cars. It has been fully networked and, in the ID.3 1ST special edition, enables electrically powered ranges of up to 420 kilometers (WLTP) with initially three equipment variants. All ID.3 1ST models feature the most popular battery variant that provides a usable energy content of 58 kWh. The series production version will later also offer a smaller battery option with an energy content of 45 kWh and a range of up to 330 kilometers as well as a larger battery with an energy content of 77 kWh and a maximum range of 550 kilometers. Thanks to its fast charging capability, at a charging output of 100 kW it is possible to recharge the ID.3 1ST with enough energy within 30 minutes to cover a range of around 290 kilometers (WLTP) - a significantly longer range than had previously been possible in the compact vehicle segment.Volkswagen will offer a guarantee of eight years or 160,000 kilometers on ID.3 batteries, thus safeguarding longevity. The ID.3 also signals visually that it is more than just a new model. Its visionary design clearly indicates the new era of electric mobility, while its spatial arrangement fully benefits from design advantages provided by electrically driven vehicles. With external dimensions comparable to the Golf, the ID.3 provides a vehicle interior that is larger than that in any other vehicle in its category. As the basic price for the series production model will be under €30,000 in Germany, the vehicle's price will be comparable to that of typical compact vehicles following the deduction of the anticipated government subsidies - an electric car for the masses. Particularly noteworthy is its unique price-range ratio that is possible solely as a result of Volkswagen's consistent strategic alignment towards electric vehicles and the associated scaling effects. The ID.3 will be delivered in Germany from mid-2020.
