Electric cars have finally been established in Europe and all brands are struggling to be in the top 10 sales, even Chinese manufacturers are already offering these options at a cheaper price.

ORA CAT

Chinese are here, one of the great surprises of this year may be a Chinese model. Manufacturers that are slowly spreading their tentacles across the old continent. Prices are expected to start from €30 k€ for a Chinese-made model that will be one of the cheapest in its segment. In addition to a neo-retro design different from what we have on the market, the Ora Cat will have a motor of between 105 and 126 kW, and the battery may be between 47.8 and 59.1 kWh, enough to travel between 336 and 420 km with a load.

A compact with the soul of an SUV that will stand out for its design, and for its wide variety of configurations that range from the motors, the batteries, but also the charging system. A model of 4.26 meters long, between 130 and 218 HP of power, and between 40 and 60 useful kWh, which translates into a range of between 300 and 470 km of WLTP autonomy.

VOLKSWAGEN ID.5

The ID.5 is nothing more than a sports ID.4. A strategy that we have seen in other models of the group, such as the Audi etron, which has gone on to add Sportback for its sports variant, and which in both cases means giving the design a little spice with a more aerodynamic and aggressive appearance. It will have three versions, ID.5 Pro, ID.5 Pro Performance and ID.5 GTX, which are basically distinguished by the motorization, between 150 and 220 kW, while the battery capacity is the same, 77 useful kWh. The ID.5 Pro has a rate of 50k€ and incorporates only the rear motor, with 128 kW/174 CV and a range of up to 514 km.

Without a doubt one of the stars of this year. A model that breaks the mold with its design and configurations that bring the van segment back to the forefront. Its arguments will be a different design, and an electrical system that will have 204 horsepower and a 77 kWh battery, which will provide a range of up to 424 km WLTP.

AUDI Q9 ETRON

Another monster that stands at the top of the food pyramid. A high-flying electric SUV that will rival the Mercedes EQS SUV in the F-SUV segment, and that will arrive with space for seven occupants, and a price above 120k€.

This year is marked by the strong crisis caused by the lack of components, but also by being a year of transition where the war in Ukraine has exacerbated interest in alternatives to oil. A year where we will see the arrival of a significant number of new electric cars that will significantly expand the offer.

In addition, this offer will be extended to segments that until now have been little or not exploited by electrical systems, and although SUVs are the main protagonists by number of models, we will also see how proposals arrive in access segments such as compacts, but also vans. , sedans…etc.
