That costs battery range for electric cars

This is how much the electric car kilometer costs

Aiways U5


The Chinese electric SUV Aiways U5 has a 204 hp electric motor, which also consumes a lot of electricity. The relatively bad result in the Euro NCAP crash test makes one attentive: only three out of five stars there was because the airbags deployed too late. The CATL battery has 63 kWh Storage capacity. The base price of the U5 is 35,993 euros, minus the e-purchase premium and VAT savings 26,423 euros. In the AUTO BILD range test under everyday conditions, the U5 achieved a range of 214 km. This results in a price per km of range of 123.47 euros.

Audi e-tron GT Quattro


Quiet lawn: The Audi e-tron GT Quattro leads the e-car league in terms of performance – and price! The two electric motors mobilize up to 530 hp in boost, and continuous output is still 190 hp. This enables speeds of up to 245 km / h. Sprint from 0 to 100 km / h: 4.1 seconds! This is how much power – of course – your house number has: 99,800 euros costs the powerhouse, of course there is no e-car funding. We have the real range with the 84 kWh battery on board 310 km determined. Thus, one kilometer in the e-tron GT Quattro costs 310.94 euros.

Audi Q4 e-tron 40


Audi offers the compact SUV Audi Q4 e-tron with several motor and battery sizes. The model 40 has the large engine 204 HP and the large battery with a capacity of 77 kWh. The battery alone weighs half a ton. The top speed is reduced to 160 km / h. Under laboratory conditions (WLTP), the Q4 e-tron 40 should be able to travel up to 520 km. We only managed on the test lap 360 km. At a price of 47,500 euros or more, there is only a reduced grant. After deducting the federal subsidy and the VAT saved, you pay off for the brother of the VW ID.4 37,930 euros. Results in a “price range” (price per kilometer of battery range) of 105.36 euros.



The counterpart from a little further south: The BMW iX3 is twelve centimeters longer than the Q4. It also has a little more power: its e-motor has an output of up to 286 hp, and rear-wheel drive can achieve speeds of up to 180 km / h. With a net capacity of 74 kWh, the battery has a little less storage capacity. The SUV came up in the AUTO BILD range test 300 km. The list price starts at 67,300 euros, for which there is a reduced subsidy. So buyers pay at least for the iX3 59,325 euros. This means that one kilometer of battery capacity costs here 197.75 euros.

Citroën e-C4


The French manufacturer took its time, but with that ë-C4 is now the first electric car with a double angle on the market. A 136 hp engine brings the 1.6-ton compact SUV up to 150 km / h. The battery is relatively small with a gross capacity of 50 kWh. But the crossover from Citroën is very cheap: The list price starts at 34,640 euros, after subsidies and VAT savings it is only 25,070 euros. In the real range test, we managed with the e-C4 200 km. Thus, the French electric car has a range price of 125.35 euros per kilometer.

Fiat 500e


Brave step: Fiat builds the 500 only with an electric motor. The small rubber ball is specially designed for short distances and city traffic. The small format favors this application because it makes it maneuverable and easy to park. So he only needs a small battery: the small one has an output of 21.3 kWh, a larger version has 37 kWh. Even with the laboratory values, this leads to insufficient range (190 or 300 km). In the real range test, the 500 with the larger battery made it 193 km. For the model with a large electric tank that drives a maximum of 150 km / h (the small only 130), Fiat charges from 29,560 euros. After deducting subsidies and sales tax, that’s just that 17,990 euros. Results in a price per battery-kilometer of 93.21 euros.

Hyundai Ioniq


The Hyundai Ioniq Electric has recently been available with a larger engine: The four-seater Fastback now has a 136 hp electric motor with a large flap on board, which accelerates it from 0 to 100 km / h in around ten seconds. Top: 165 km / h. The battery has a meager 38 kWh capacity, which is enough for 311 km according to the WLTP consumption standard. The reality is a bit stricter, on the AUTO BILD consumption round the Ioniq reaches Elektro 300 – considerably close to the official value! At Hyundai, the Ioniq is on the price list from 35,350 euros, after deduction of the subsidy and VAT reduction it is still 26,030 euros. This results in a very affordable price range of 86.77 euros per battery kilometer.

Hyundai Kona


Before the Ioniq, the Korean manufacturer brought a compact SUV crossover with an electric drive: The Hyundai Kona has been available as an e-car for two years. At 4.16 m it offers space for four including luggage. Two motor-battery combinations are available: a small one with 136 HP and 39 kWh battery and a large one with 204 HP and 64 kWh. We put the big Kona E with 204 hp on the consumption lap, and the battery lasted 330 km. According to the WLTP, it should be up to 484 km. The crossover is available from 32,280 euros. If you subtract the subsidy and VAT portion, it is still there 26,080 euros. Results in a “price range” (price for one kilometer of battery range) of 79.03 euros.

Mercedes EQA


The compact SUV Mercedes EQA has been on the market for almost a year, it is offered in three different drive configurations: with 190, 228 and 292 hp, each fed by the same battery with 66.5 kWh of energy. The top speed is 160 km / h in each case. According to the standard consumption calculation, all three versions have approximately the same range, namely between 426 and 432 km. At the AUTO BILD round, the smallest motorization turned out to be less than inspiring 280 km. The gross price for the smallest model starts at € 47,540.50, which entitles you to a reduced subsidy. The and the VAT reduction deducted, one comes to a purchase price of 37,970.50 euros. This is how the price for 1 km battery range is calculated: 135.61 euros.

Mercedes EQV


One of the first transporters with an electric drive is the Mercedes EQV, so the electric V-Class. It is not really suitable for long distances, but it is certainly conceivable for passengers or deliveries. Different versions and vehicle lengths are in planning, so far there is the EQV 300 with 204 PS and a 90 kWh battery. It delivers a lot of energy, but a lot is possible when the high forehead braces against the wind resistance from 80 km / h. This is how we get there with the E-Bus on the test lap 306 kmwhere according to WLTP 418 should be possible. In the price list, the EQV is 70,631 euros for the body of medium length (5.40 meters). After deducting the reduced funding and VAT, we end up with 62,656 euros. That results in a price range of 204.76 euros (per range kilometer).

Opel Mokka-e


Opel is electrifying its model range piece by piece, including the compact SUV mocha is now available in a version with an electric drive. The cheapest version costs from 34,110 euros, with a 136 hp engine on board. The electricity is from a 50 kWh battery – this is the gross value, the actual energy yield is slightly lower. According to the standard, the Mokka-e should be able to drive 324 km, here too the test under realistic conditions on the AUTO BILD round shows less potential. And clearly: 210 km until reloading were possible. Minus the cost of the mini SUV minus the subsidy and VAT reduction 23,420 euros. This results in a price range of 111.52 euros.

Opel Zafira-e


Opel has also already developed a light commercial vehicle with an electric drive that is offered with two battery sizes: As Zafira-e 50 and as 75 – the numbers stand for the respective gross energy capacities in kWh. With 136 hp, it is strong enough to accelerate to a maximum of 130 km / h. With from 63,350 euros for the medium body (4.95 m, the short one will be offered later) and a large battery, it is around 6,000 euros more expensive than the Zafira with the small battery. According to the standard, the 2.2-ton vehicle with a large battery is supposed to travel 329 km, but AUTO BILD determined in everyday life on the test round 309 km. After deducting the reduced subsidy and the VAT component, there remains a purchase price of 55,375 euros. Divided by the real range results in a price per battery kilometer of 179.21 euros.

Skoda Enyaq iV 80


the Skoda Enyaq iV Like the Audi Q4 and VW ID.4, it is a compact SUV with e-drive – since they were all born from the same electrical construction kit, one can speak of triplets. Skoda offers the brand’s first fully electric passenger car in three different motor-battery configurations, from 148 to 204 hp. The largest has a 77 kWh battery and reaches a maximum of 180 km / h. We determined the everyday range on the test round, it is actually included 350 km. The list price for the most powerful Enyaq starts at 45,370 euros. After deducting the full subsidy and VAT, the purchase price remains 35,800 euros. This leads to a “price range” of 102.39 euros.

VW ID.4 Pro


the VW ID.4 corresponds to the second most powerful Enyaq version: also with the large 77 kWh battery, but only equipped with 174 hp. Like the three conventional Enyaq models, it is electronically throttled to 160 km / h. AUTO BILD has sent the Pro version on the test round: 350 km We determined the range under everyday conditions. The Pro costs from 44,915 euros, minus the full subsidy and VAT, the current purchase price is 35,345 euros. This means that one kilometer of range costs exactly for the ID.4 100.98 euros.



For comparison: the sports version of the ID.4 also has the 77 kWh battery, but a much more powerful machine. It accelerates the with 299 hp GTX in the sprint discipline (0-100 km / h) in 6.2 seconds. At 180 km / h it is electronically limited – not exactly that sports car feeling. The range according to the WLTP standard should be 482 km; in reality, the test round resulted in more than a third less; namely only 319 km. A purchase price results from a list price of 50,415 euros or more minus the reduced subsidy and VAT 40,845 euros. Thus, the VW ID.4 GTX offers a price range of 128 euros.
