Electric car VW Neo will be the first car of a new generation of electric cars to really play the benefits of electromobility.This reports the car image in its current issue and also online the portal dealership. So far, VW has not issued an official statement – perhaps this is happening at the press conference of the Beijing International Trade Fair.
It Is Known That The Drive Should Come From A 170 Horsepower Electric Motor
This is housed on the rear axle. With its five seats, the electric vehicle needs eight seconds to accelerate to 100 km/h. At the range Volkswagen is not a rag: The range of the VW Neo is supposed to be at least 400 kilometers – rumor has it that a version with a larger battery is planned as well. This could then provide for a stately 600 km range.
If these ranges are to be added, the strength of electromobility will once again show itself when the vehicles are rather compact. Large SUVs, on the other hand, make less sense than electric cars from today’s point of view – but are important in order to increase the attractiveness of electromobility as a whole. For environmental reasons, however, it is clearly more critical to assess the whole.
The I.D. Family Is Based On A New Electrical Architecture
The VW Neo will form the technological and economic basis for the majority of future electric cars in the group. Previously, VW had already started to build the new Electrogolf in its Glass manufactory. For the free state, all of these are important mosaics in its strategy of becoming a pioneer country for electromobility, autonomous driving and intelligent transport systems.
A first test in terms of innovative strength is already coming up next year, because then with the VW ID the first electric car in the large series of Volkswagen will be launched under the name Neo.The NEO is virtually the Golf of the future and is expected to come on the market at acceptable prices of €30,000 at the end of 2019. In this way, VW is aiming specifically at the mass market, similar to Tesla with its Model 3.
In addition to the VW ID or VW Neo, from 2021, among others, an electric SUV, as well as an electric minibus and an e-sedan are planned. The electric cars planned by VW will be produced at four locations: USA, 2 times in China and in Germany. The VW ID or VW Neo is to run from the end of 2019 in Zwickau,Germany.
Investors can be curious whether VW will be able to play its long-term experience in automotive production and, unlike Tesla, may keep its schedule in the mass production of electric cars.
Competition Between The Next Generation Of Cars
VW is doomed to success, because not only local automakers and the electric car Tesla are pushing forcefully into the mass market, but also Chinese manufacturers want to have a slice of the cake. VW must be careful not to get under the wheels, the company wants to say a word to the next generation of cars.
The Batteries Will Be Cheaper
The reason for the lower price sees Sedran in the development of the batteries: at present one kilowatt-time costs between 150 and 200 euro. VW expects that until 2020, when the VW ID is to enter the market, the price will fall to below 100 euros per kilowatt hour. However, Tesla will also benefit from this development.
Do We See The Flagship Products That Will Shape Europe’s Industry For The Next Decades?
The VW Neo must be a winner, the signs are promising. As the largest manufacturer, VW must also lead an entire industry when it comes to change-after all, the current driving forces are actually foreign to the industry and little experienced, which is noticeable in the products. For the real gamechanger, it takes more than just visions and what VW has leaked is what makes it a leap of development that is sustainable.
It is based on a specially developed platform. This shows that Volkswagen is really serious about electric cars, because so far only the powertrain has been exchanged, without playing out the advantages of the electric car. This will change from 2019 with the new generation of electric vehicles from the Volkswagen Group.
