These High End luxury Electric Cars Are Coming To Compete With Tesla (Photos) by TechCapon(m): 6:30am On Sep 11, 2018

Unlike the smartphone industry, the automotive industry is undergoing rapid changes and innovations. When Tesla started producing electric cars, all other major car manufacturers were laughing at Tesla because it was slow, has low distance range, smallish in size and looks weird. They thought electric car production will never be profitable and will just be a huge waste of money and resources. After a while the technology improved, rumors began to spread that these new electric cars from Tesla are fast, strong, lasts longer and have high distance range. The cars started selling so well that Tesla find it so difficult to met up with the demands. It became almost impossible to ignore electric car production and now major car companies have stopped laughing at Tesla and gone fully into electric car production because they don’t want to miss out on the huge market. In this post I will be listing top high end electric cars that can compete with Tesla in the EV market.

JAGUAR i-PACE




Jaguar is known as a strict luxury car maker! They don’t have the average class in minds at all, lol. Built from the ground up, the New Jaguar I‑PACE is a pure Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV). Thrilling to look at and drive. One full charge provides a range of up to 240 miles and it can reach an acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. It has DC fast charge which charges the car in just over 2 hrs.

2. PORSCHE MISSION E




The Mission-E is the direct competitor to the Tesla Model X and Roadster. It is the fastest on my list with 0-100KM/HR (0-62MPH) in just 3.6 seconds. It has a top speed of 250KM/HR. This car has an inbuilt cooling technology to prevent overheating. It takes just 15 minutes to charge this car from 0-80%.. The range of the Porsche Mission E is said to be 500KM . The price starts at $75,000.

3. HYUNDAI KONA




Hyundai is also making a bold move into the electric vehicle market with the KONA EV. It has a 64KWh battery pack which can last for up to 470KM. It takes just 1 hour to charge this car from 0-80% thanks to it’s fast DC charge technology. The price for the Hyundai Kona is set at $45,000.

4. ASTON MARTIN RAPIDE




The British automaker Aston Martin is said to be making an all electric version of it’s car the RAPIDE as part of its second century plan initiative. The company is teaming up with Chinese smartphone makers LeEco to make this car. It will have 6KW of power in an all wheel drive format. It will also have a 320 KM range on a single charge. It is going to be a limited production as only 155 cars will be made. The price? $250,000.

5. Mercedes Benz EQC




DAIMLER has dived headlong into the electric car market by unleashing the agressive looking Mercedes Benz EQC EV SUV. Of course the Specs include two electric motors, 408hp and four-wheel drive. It is said to have a range of 280 miles on a single charge and the price is pegged around $76,000 for the base model. Release date is early 2019.

6. AUDI E-TRON QUATTRO




German automakers Audi is definitely not missing out on this lucrative electric car market as it has launched the AUDI E-TRON QUATTRO luxury SUV which the company says the car has 3 powerful engines. One electric motor drives the front axle, the two others act on the rear axle for a total output of 320 kW. The driver can even mobilise 370 kW and over 800 Nm (590.0 lb-ft) of torque temporarily while boosting. The concept study thus performs like a sports car. When the driver floors the right pedal, the Audi e-tron quattro concept sprints from a standstill to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.6 seconds and quickly reaches the electronically governed top speed of 210 km/h (130.5 mph). Price starts at $100,000.

.This your name sef 'Techcapon', always makes me chuckle whenever I see it grin


As for the topic, electric cars are obviously the future, they may be expensive now and have relatively low range but those are all symptoms of a technology still in its infancy.

Very soon ICE cars would be relegated to niche status and will probably be taxed.

I agree. The only way electric vehicles can really succeed is to setup free, public charging stations across the country so users who's battery goes down can easy recharge. All these cars supports fast charge technology. BTW what's funny about my name

Charging stations don't have to be free, but there has to be a lot of them, one thing that is sure is the fact that the infrastructure will grow, Mercedes and a lot of other auto makers have already collaborated in a joint venture to install charging stations across Europe.



here's the definition of a capon:

ca·pon

\ˈkā-ˌpän, -pən\

noun

: a male chicken whose sex organs have been removed


That's why I find it funny.

That’s the extraordinary thing about invention and business, you have to keep evolving to be the best.

All these car conglomerate companies should be ashamed, competing with a Tesla that was just founded in 2003, when some of them have been there for centuries.

If it’s not a Tesla, it can never be the same as a Tesla!

As far as EV goes, Tesla is miles light years ahead of everyone else. Tesla sits upon the golden mountain, while the others are groping in the valley. That’s why Elon Musk has been confidently arrogant, because the future of the auto industry is in Tesla’s hand, and that future is already here. Tesla all the way. Can’t wait to own a Tesla model S kiss kiss

I agree... they dragged their feet until a new company came to show them what's possible. The luxury segment should have been at the forefront since their customers are not particularly price sensitive.

Electric vehicles are definitely the next evolution in transport, and companies that make that transition will be HUGE as there are billions of ICE cars to replace over the next two decades. it's really too bad that our infrastructure would not even allow any indigenous manufacturer to try and capture some of this market.

Did it discourage you from owning a laptop or smartphone? BTW the latest models can charge up to 80% in 15 min, that's about the time it takes you to have your lunch break. And companies will have charging stations installed for staff's who own electric cars.
Re: These High End luxury Electric Cars Are Coming To Compete With Tesla (Photos) by olaeffect(m): 9:25pm On Sep 11, 2018
We that don't even have stable power supply yet in any part of our country.
Some over-sabi money miss road people will go and buy these cars now and be using diesel generators to charge it. Nigeria!!!!
