  • Electric car premium: Yes

S-Z: Volkswagen e-up!

Most Up VWs are used as short-range cars. Actually, the ideal application for a battery-electric vehicle like the Volkswagen e-Up.

Z for Future: Mercedes EQC (fall 2019)

With the Mercedes EQC the Stuttgart company wants to lay the foundation for an entire electric fleet from Stuttgart.

  • Price: From 15.000 euros
  • status: Available for pre-order, delivery at the earliest by the end of 2019
  • Electric car premium: Expires before

End of 2019: Solar car Sion

With two batteries, the retro exotic is expected to make up to 260 km far and will reach up to 130 km/h make. The acceleration performance would also be spectacular: from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds – that’s almost Tesla level.
