Europe & # 39; s best-selling electric car – Nissan LEAF is displayed on ELECTRIC MOBILITY EXPO 2018
The leader of the European automotive market, whose sales increased by 56% during the first 5 months of the year (according to the JATO Dynamics analytical agency), will be one of the exhibitions of the first specialized exhibition for electric cars in Bulgaria – from 13 to September 16 in Sofia Ring Mall.
And while cars on alternative fuel are still cautiously paving the way for us, their sales worldwide are more than 1 million in the first quarter of this year. Of course, this result is mainly due to China with 83,600 electric vehicles sold, but Europe is in second place with 76% growth and 46,500 sales. According to JATO Dynamics, the world's best-selling brand for electric cars is Tesla, but Renault-Nissan is the leader in the car group and is an elite European leader in the market share of 41%.
Let's try to understand why. Nissan LEAF, which we will look further on ELECTRIC MOBILITY EXPO 2018, can travel 270 km. with one battery charge (combined cycle (WLTP).) The energy consumption is only 20 kWh per 100 km, which means that you can get from Sofia to Plovdiv for just over 3 leva. and is fully charged for 7.5 hours (from Wall Box charging station 32A) or up to 80% of its capacity in just 1 hour (with a ChaDeMo charging station).
At the same time the car is powerful – 150 hp. and is equipped with all advanced safety, safety and drive systems that Nissan has developed for its conventional models. Maintenance costs will surprise you – less than $ 700 for a mileage of 150,000 km. or exploitation for two and a half years. The exhibition in Sofia shows the general concept of the operation of this electric car, with the possibilities and facilities for charging Legrand charging stations.
The British cat also reaches this segment of the market with the first fully electric car in the history of jaguar – I-PACE
from ELECTRIC MOBILITY EXPO 2018 You will see the new 5-seater sports SUV from the brand that combines the dynamics of a sports car with the modern technologies of the future. The lithium-ion battery has a capacity of 90 KW and allows up to 470 km on one charge. The battery is charged up to 80% in just 40 minutes with the help of special power plants that provide a constant current of 100 kW. Well, charging can also be done via a simple socket at home (via a 7 KW AC charger) for about 10 hours. So while you rest, the car charges.
The new I-PACE is powered by two electric motors with an impressive capacity of 400 hp. and 696 Nm of torque. With them, the Jaguar I-PACE can accelerate from 0-100 km / h in just 4.8 seconds. The electric car is available with AWD drive for ideal traction on the road, which is enhanced by a low battery center, with a very low center of gravity. Intelligent technology in the car also includes a pre-conditioning system that automatically increases when it is recharged or with which the battery temperature is reduced to cover a maximum of kilometers before departure.
Have you looked at the car in the meantime? The sleek, coupé-like silhouette is influenced by the super Jaguar C-X75
The smooth and clean lines emphasize the premium character while the aggressive grille on the front reveals guts and strength under the bonnet. The interior is made with impressive attention to detail, with all body touch points individually designed for maximum comfort and enjoyment for the driver and his companions. Under the rear seats there is free storage for a laptop, tablet, book and the rack is pleasantly surprising with a space of 656 liters.
In terms of technology, the Jaguar I-PACE comes with an innovative electric vehicle navigation system that evaluates route topography to destination, previous ride data, including driving style, to calculate possible mileage and battery status. And you can have this car if you wait until the start of next year, when it will start offering in Bulgaria. It is not yet known at what price, but it is known that the supplies are expected in March at the earliest. If you are not patient, you can take part in the Moto Pfohe lottery, on which you play ELECTRIC MOBILITY EXPO and win a weekend for two with Jaguar at Amira Hotel, Bansko.
