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

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.

Peugeot e-208

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.

Kia e-Niro

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

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.
