Electricity for everyone The new e-cars by summer

The e-car wave is rolling. And so in the next six months numerous new crossovers with batteries will come onto the market. The portfolio ranges from sporty to practical to really expensive. On average, however, the prices for the upcoming Stromer are 40,000 euros.
The range of e-cars is growing rapidly and steadily. Numerous Stromer premieres are also planned for the coming months. Most of them are SUVs, but small and especially micro cars are still missing. An overview of the innovations from January to June. Cupra Born The Spaniards regard the Cupra Born as an electric sports cannon and the much more stylish brother of the VW ID.3. (Photo: Cupra) For many, the Cupra Born is the nicer ID.3: Now the Seat offshoot Cupra can also bring its first e-mobile from the group’s modular system onto the road. The Born is technically largely identical to the North German, but is drawn more dynamically and tuned more crisply. Up to 231 hp and a range of 540 kilometers are possible. Prices start at 37,200 euros for the variant with 204 hp, which is roughly at the level of the corresponding ID.3, regardless of the equipment. Genesis GV60 Genesis is Hyundai’s luxury brand and wants to set the tone in the electric car segment with the GV60 set. (Photo: Genesis) After the Korean premium brand, founded in 2015, recently expanded its range of conventional models, the launch of the first purely electric model is now imminent. The middle-class crossover GV60 uses the technology of the group brothers Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6, garnished with new high-tech features and a decidedly dynamic design. The eye-catcher in the interior is a crystal ball in the center console. When the vehicle is started, its underside rotates upwards, revealing the control buttons for the automatic system. In terms of price, the Genesis should position itself above its two more middle-class relatives, which can be had from around 42,000 euros in the best case.Mazda MX-30 REV In addition to a battery, the Mazda MX-30 REV has an internal combustion engine on board, which as a range extender, the battery while charging while driving. (Photo: Mazda) The Japanese company offers the MX-30, which was previously only available as a purely electric model, with a range extender. The Japanese approach is both unusual and consistent at the same time: a Wankel engine is used as the petrol engine, a rather exotic design that has a long tradition at Mazda. The rotary piston engine is said to be particularly suitable for use in part-time electric vehicles due to its small footprint and smooth running. In terms of price, the variant with the serial plug-in hybrid drive will be in a similar range to the purely battery-powered model, which is available from around 34,500 euros. However, there is no government funding for the MX-30 REV.Mercedes EQE The Mercedes EQE is something like the electric E-Class. Therefore, the price of almost 100,000 euros is hardly surprising. (Photo: Mercedes) The EQE business sedan presented at the IAA in Munich will be launched in early summer. The little brother of the EQS has a similarly streamlined body with a short bonnet and large, arched passenger compartment, offers a range of around 660 kilometers and at least around 300 hp. The spectacular hyperscreen, which stretches across the entire width of the vehicle, is also on board. In terms of price, the four-door will compete with the conventional E-Class and will be well below the almost 100,000 euros that are being asked for the EQS. (Photo: MG) The Chinese-owned traditional British brand is already represented in Germany with two electric SUVs. Now follows with the MG5 an electrically powered compact station wagon. MG promises a trunk that can be expanded from 479 to around 1400 liters and two battery versions with 50 or 61 kWh for a range of 320 or 400 kilometers. The electric motor drives the Stromer with 156 hp and 260 Newton meters of torque. The price will be less than 40,000 euros.Opel Rocks-e The Opel Rocks-e is probably more of a fun vehicle than a serious car. (Photo: Opel) The electric Micromobil Opel Rocks-e is now available for 8,000 euros as a cube-shaped two-seater for the city – limited to 45 km/h, but also suitable for 15-year-olds. The range of the Micro-Mobile, which is only 2.41 meters long, is low at 75 kilometers, but the low maximum speed is likely to be much more annoying in everyday urban life. Anyone who is afraid of being perceived as a traffic obstacle must hope for the widespread introduction of 30 km/h zones in cities. Some major cities have already announced plans to do so.Renault Mégane E-Tech The Renault Mégan E-Tech has started to dig the water out of the VW ID.3. (Photo: Renault) With the electric cousin of the well-known Mégane, the French are targeting the VW ID.3 in the spring. The compact, in a gentle crossover style, stands on a completely new electric platform and is said to travel up to 470 kilometers per battery charge. As is now common in this segment, there are different battery sizes and motor power levels to choose from. Renault also offers several gradations from slow to fast when it comes to charging technology. At 35,200 euros, the price is based on that of its north German competitor.Skoda Enyaq Coupé As a variant of the Enyaq, Skoda will be bringing a coupé by summer. (Photo: Skoda) A good year after the e-crossover Enyaq, the Czech VW subsidiary is sending its coupé offshoot onto the road. In addition to an exclusive top version with 265 hp, the most important difference is probably a generally higher price and the sleeker design, which is not only supposed to offer aesthetic advantages, but also comes off better in terms of wind resistance. The most efficient version has a range of 535 kilometers. Ssangyong Korando E-Motion Ssangyong will be bringing the electric version of its compact SUV Korando onto the road before the end of this year. (Photo: Ssangyong) The South Koreans will be the first electric car to put a battery-powered version of their compact SUV Korando on the road early in the year. The closed radiator grille and a redesigned front apron are the most important visible changes compared to the conventional variant of the compact SUV. The range of the model, which is available from 39,000 euros, is 339 kilometers. The battery should be able to be filled from 20 to 80 percent in around 33 minutes at the quick charging station, but the manufacturer does not provide any information on the AC charging capacity is a somewhat refined coupe offshoot of the compact SUV ID.4, which will offer a crisper design and faster charging technology for just under 47,000 euros from early summer. The provisional top model of the ID family is initially available in the rear-wheel drive versions Pro and Pro Performance with 174 hp and 204 hp respectively, as well as in the provisional top variant GTX with 299 hp, which has electric all-wheel drive.
