Electric Luxury Vehicles Set To Launch In 2019 And Beyond
For the fully electric luxury vehicle and sports utility vehicle market, the 2018 release of Jaguar I-Pace was only the beginning. To commence this year and extend till 2020, Jaguar’s competition will include brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Audi, and BMW. Also, Tesla plans to raise the bar even higher. Tesla is yet to show the smaller version Model Y crossover. However, it is expected that an unveiling would happen this year and the production will likely take place in 2020.
On its end, Audi has plans to increase the lineup of its electric vehicles rapidly. Last September, it unveiled its Audi E-Tron SUV. The German company has started to take $1,000 as deposits for its SUV which will reportedly be made available in the US next spring.
Unveiling of E-Tron
Audi unveiled the E-Tron at a San-Francisco event based on the fact that its US market is projected to be the SUV’s market likely. The SUV’s starting price is $75,000. Just some months later, Audi unveiled its Audi E-Tron GT which is a more sporty four-door vehicle version. Audi said it served as the preview of a vehicle model which will likely start selling next year. Its electric vehicle lineup will also feature E-Tron Sportback. The E-Tron Sportback is an electric SUV which is sportier, and Audi said it would start its production this year.
Mercedes-Benz EQC Unveiling
Also last year, Mercedes also unveiled its first ever electric SUV. Just like the E-Tron from Audi, Mercedes-Benz EQC does not particularly have major differences from Mercedes-Benz’s SUVs that are combustion powered. However, its shape is sportier, and it is slightly lower. Production of the vehicle will also start this year, but it will not be available in the US till 2020.
Tycan is the first fully electric vehicle from Porsche, and its production is set to start this year. The company promises that the electric car which is 600 horsepower would offer a worthy driving experience for its buyers. The vehicle would have the ability to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds. Even though it will not be the fastest electric vehicle money can buy, it will still be impressively fast by reasonable standards.
The company also stated that the car would have the capability of a continuous power level that cannot be matched by other electric cars. That implies that owners of the vehicle will still have fun while also getting a driving range that is fairly decent.
BMW Vision iNext
BMW made use of a plane’s belly to flaunt a concept model of an electric sports utility vehicle it has plans to start selling come 2021. The concept version was shown to some reporters while they were on a cargo plane that had stops at various cities across the world. According to reports, the interactive technology of the vehicle was designed to a considerable unobtrusive level. Also, screens and knobs of the vehicle are designed in such a way that they remain hidden when they are not in use.
Its BMW iX3 crossover is set to arrive before its Vision iNext as its sale would begin next year. The crossover was designed making use of the newly introduced flexible engineering of BMW which makes it possible for the production of one model as a plug-in hybrid, gasoline as well as completely electronic versions. The building of the crossover will reportedly take place in China from where it will be exported globally.
BMW’s subsidiary, Mini will also offer its new electric car earlier than that although there isn’t much information about it as it has not yet been unveiled. However, its representatives have mentioned that its sale will start this year.
Also Rivian, a Michigan start-up automaker has started taking a reservation for the company’s electric pickup, SUV, the R1S, and the R1T. The vehicles are marketed for their authentic off-road capability as that is something electric vehicles generally do not tout. Rivian expects that the vehicles would start selling late in the year.
