Tesla Model 3
The Tesla Model 3 is one of the best-selling cars. It is equipped with modern advanced technologies. The manufacturer positions it as a mass and relatively affordable car among other models of the company.The standard model with a curb weight of 1609 kg has a power reserve of 354 km, acceleration to 97 km/ h in 5.6 seconds, and a maximum speed of 209 km/h. Its battery has a capacity of 60 kWh. The driver can charge an electric car at the Tesla Supercharger fast-charging station in just half an hour — this time is enough to provide 50-60% of the maximum power reserve. Normal battery charging lasts from 7.5 to 8.5 hours.
Porsche Taycan won the title of the fastest electric car in early 2021. It combines high-quality driving characteristics, reliable handling, and a practical interior. The electric car has a platform with a low center of gravity and an advanced suspension, an innovative power plant with unique parameters that significantly accelerate the charging process. On the center console, there is another 8.4-inch screen responsible for the operation of the climate control unit. The Porsche Taycan is based on the PPE platform. The rear unit is equipped with a two-stage planetary gearbox. such a tandem is 625 horsepower. For the fastest acceleration, for a short time, depending on the configuration, the car can produce 680 or 761 horsepower, but only for 2.5 seconds. As a result, acceleration from zero to the first hundred will take 2.8-3.2 seconds, and the maximum speed is limited at 260 km / h due to the speed limit of electric motors. The total capacity of the batteries is 93.4 kWh. As much as possible they are enough for 381-450 km of the way. One of the main advantages of the Taycan is the 800-volt onboard network. It allows you to use smaller wires, as well as speed up the charging process.
The Peugeot e-208 is a compact electric car that competes for many. It is an electric version of the compact hatchback, which is extremely popular in Europe. It is built based on the new e-CMP platform and has a 100 kW electric motor with a torque of 260 Nm. The electric car has front-wheel drive, and its acceleration dynamics to the first hundred is 8.1 seconds. The Peugeot e-208 has a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 50 kWh, which offers a power reserve of 340 km on the WLTP cycle. Charging the car takes 8 hours when using a 7.4kW charger or 5 hours from an 11 kW charger. In addition, fast direct-current charging with a power of 100 kW via the CCS connector allows you to charge the Peugeot e-208 battery from 0 to 80% in 30 minutes.
It is an all-electric crossover, reminiscent of the technical characteristics of the Hyundai Kona EV. The car is equipped with a 150 kW (204 hp) electric motor with a torque of 395 Nm, allowing the electric vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.8 seconds. A lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 64 kWh powers the electric motor, which provides a power reserve of 385 km on a single charge. The model can be charged with a 100 kW fast charger by 80% in 54 minutes. The battery pack is located under the car's floor, creating a low center of gravity and providing maximum stability and driving pleasure on winding roads. Available active safety systems include collision warning with the car in front, and smart-cruise control. The system monitors acceleration, braking, and steering according to the behavior of vehicles in front, using external sensors to maintain a safe distance.
Jaguar I-Pace is an all-electric crossover from a famous British brand. The design emphasizes the progressive nature of each electric vehicle. Jaguar I-PACE - combines all-wheel drive characteristics, powerful torque of 696 Nm, and zero emissions of harmful substances. The instantaneous transmission of all the torque inherent in electric vehicles provides the Jaguar I-Pace with dynamic characteristics. They allow you to accelerate the crossover to hundreds in 4.8 seconds. The model is equipped with the latest battery with a capacity of 90 kWh consisting of 432 cells. The battery of the electric car provides a power reserve of 480 kilometers according to the WLTP cycle. Electric car owners can replenish 80% of the battery volume in just 40 minutes using 100 kW DC fast charging. As a regular alternative, you can use a home charger with a wall-mounted box with a power of 7 kW, which will allow you to charge the battery up to 80% in ten hours.
