“it’s going to be a great year for consumers in the EV field because we are seeing a lot of legacy makers bringing EVs to the Australian market.”
“this is now moving towards the market of people saying they want the best vehicle and it is an electric car”
Then our first topic is,
This is the first electric car from Volvo’s Polestar. This has a battery of 78 kWh, and 8t offers a range of 500 km. The starting price of this car is about €40,000. But I’m various markets this car has a different value. In Europe and North America, Polestar 2 has a price of between $90,000 and $95,000. In Germany, it is about $95,632. You know that this price is not so small. But there have to be facilities that match this price. We will see them.
There are two special packages for this polestar 2. That two packages are specially for the United Kingdom. Those two areas a pilot package and the plus package.
This features semi-autonomous driving. Pilot assisting adaptive cruise control system, 360 degrees camera system, AEB in forward and reverse, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, driver fatigue monitoring are some essential features. These above are known as the pilot package.

Other than that, a heated steering wheel, wireless smartphone charging, Harmon Kardon premium audio, powered front seat backrests, additional rear USB outlets in the rear.

And it has a 405V architecture. And two asynchronous motors output a combined 300 kW/760 Nm. Other than those above, there is a fully variable AWD system. That is with a single-speed transmission linked to each vehicle axle and each motor.

And it has a usable ADR driving range of 434 km with waste energy regenerated. The European WLTP cycle calculates this range more modest 414 km. The onboard charging rate of this is 110 kW. Then the user can add 220km of range in 30 minutes. There are some more. There is a 10.25-inch digital screen. That is inside the EQC.

But the battery has eight years warranty: eight years or 160 000 km.

Then the next new releasing car is,
MG ZS EV
This is the first all-electric car from MG to the Australian market. This is at the opening price of about $46,990. According to this price, MG ZS, EV, maintains the cheapest car in the Australian market.
MG ZS EV is powered by 105 kW and 353 Nm electric motor and 44.5 kWh lithium battery. And that battery enables 262 km of emission-free driving. How advantageous is that? You know, in every vehicle, there is standard equipment. As same as them here even though there are some instruments.
Satellite navigation, six-speaker sound systems, 8.0-inch multimedia color touchscreen, three driving modes, and sunroof are such features. Here the multimedia color touchscreen is with the android auto and apple car play connectivity.
For the MG ZS EV, even there are warranties for both the car and the battery. But both the warranties cover the same period. It is seven years or 160,000 km warranty.
Through the above, I told you about the critical factors in this car. You can know some more even when it will be released to the Australian market. Would you like this card????
Then we have to move to our next topic.
Mini Cooper SE
This is within the driving range of 270 km. This will move to the Australian market in the mid of 2020. The starting price of the Mini Cooper SE is started from US$30,750. The European cost is about €32,000.
This mini Cooper SE based on the current generation copper three doors. That was introduced in 2013 — a 135 kW electric motor powers this. As I told above, this car has a driving range of 235 km to 270 km after a full charge. Even mini Cooper SE can acquire 100kmh within the time of 7.3 seconds. Through those above, the power is delivered to the front wheels.

This is with a fast-charging battery. Here there is a 52.5 kWh battery. The charging about 20%-80% ends within the time of 30 minutes. Through 10 amp PowerPoint, it takes about 12 hours for a full load. But if you have 15 amp PowerPoint, it will take only 8 hours. This car has a driving range of 400km.
In the future, I think you can buy this car online. But even manufacturers like to sell this car in showrooms. They said that they could shift this to Australia within 60 days.
“once we have a firm delivery time frame and therefore a firm piercing, all of those people that have said they want to buy one we will contact directly with the price for their state and delivery time frame, if they are happy to proceed we will then take a deposit “
Now you have an idea about Glory EV too. What is your opinion about that??? Now it is time to move our last car that will compete in the Australian market. It is,
Tesla Model Y
This is the next model of tesla: the Californian carmaker. Then tesla has already bought forward overseas productions for three months. This is very similar to the tesla model 3 with ¾ built based on the tesla model 3. When comparing to model 3, this priced than it and have slightly less driving range.
I can name this car as the safest car for the passengers because this is low center gravity, large crumple zone, and has a rigid body structure. With those features, it can overcome an accident to a certain level. Seven passengers can travel comfortably through this car. Even this car can supply secure storage for luggage and furniture too.
There are dual motors that consist of this car. Those two motors control torque to the front and rear wheels. This is capable of various weather controls such as rain, snow, mud, and off the road. This is featured with facilities like emergency braking, collision warning, and blind-spot monitoring. With all those features, tesla model Y can be recommended as an excellent vehicle for you.
