The range of electric cars has increased further
Range information according to NEDC and WLTP
In addition, more and more manufacturers are using the Range of your models according to WLTP specify, whereby the value is also something lower than the old one NEDC consumption cycle fails. Yet four years ago just under half of the electric vehicles offered were able to cover a distance of less than 200 kilometers, only eleven percent came to more than 400 kilometers. 2017 the number of models with a range of less than 200 km decreased significantly, while those with more than 400 kilometers increased noticeably. 2020 the proportion of e-vehicles with a Range from 200 to 400 kilometers first time on over 50 percent and has remained stable in this region ever since. This is mainly due to the fact that these vehicles with their slightly lower battery capacity cheaper to buy are and have the potential to previous City cars with internal combustion engines to replace. And after all, more than a quarter of e-cars (28 percent) can travel more than 400 kilometers without having to go to the charging station.
The range of action of e-cars is continuously improving
The electric range is also growing with hybrids
Both Plug-in hybrids increases the Range also, but much more slowly. Nevertheless, here too is the Selection of available PHEVs increased significantly, especially in the past two years. Models like a BMW X5 45e or a Mercedes GLE 350 de come over in purely electric driving mode 80 kilometers far. From the beginning 2022 need plug-in hybrids in the European Union more than 60 kilometers create purely electrically, otherwise they will no longer be recognized as subsidized vehicles. Currently more than 40 kilometers are sufficient for this. The long used Argument against buying an electric carthat you can’t cover great distances, could be in the foreseeable future continue to lose authorization. Both the Ranges as well as that Offer of electric cars are getting bigger and bigger. In addition, the increasing number of charging stations so that the fear of being left lying around without a charging facility is reduced. There are also increasing numbers of charging stations that enable fast charging.
