The All-Electric Volkswagen ID Space Vizzion Wagon Concept

  • The ambition of the German automotive behemoth Volkswagen in the fast evolving global zero-emission road transportation race is now well known.  According to VW ‘the best way to see into the future is to create it yourself’.  It is clear that they also walk-the-talk!
  • The Group has committed EUR 30 billion towards its audacious ‘electrification dreams’ and aims to sell 3 million electric vehicles globally by 2025.  But that is just the beginning of its ambitions.  In fact, Volkswagen AG aims to build up to 22 million vehicles over the coming decade with the launch of up to 70 new electric vehicle models. 
  • The ID Space Vizzion wagon concept is the seventh EV concept from VW.  The electric vehicle made its debut on 19th November 2019 at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show and is part of the VW ID. family.  Other EVs in the ID. portfolio also include the ID.3, ID.Crozz and ID.Buzz.
  • The Space Vizzion production all-electric estate model is expected to be available in late 2021 in Europe and the following year (2022) in the US.  It is also expected to be sold in China.  It is based on MEB, the VW electric vehicle platform.

  • The 82 kWh lithium-ion powered battery-electric vehicle has a claimed a range of up to 367 miles on a single charge. 0-60 mph acceleration in under 5.0 seconds.  The top speed is electronically limited to 109 mph. (275 horsepower/205-kilowatt electric motor).  The production model is expected to be available in rear or all-wheel drive. 
  • The Vizzion will have a fast-charging capability (150 kW DC).
  • The ID.Space Vizzion is a four-seater, but the manufacturer may add a third row with three additional seats. The interior upholstery is eco-friendly and is manufactured from recycled apple waste. The concept comes with all the bells and whistles to include 22-inch allow wheels.  The EV concept does live up to its name, with a sizeable boot space of 586 litres.
  • Expect to see the augmented-reality head-up display in the production version along with a 15.6-inch centre console screen. As seems to be the trend, the electric vehicle does not have door handles i.e. illuminated surfaces need to be touched to open the door.  Not clear if this will actually be incorporated in the production model, as there is always a difference, in some cases large, between a concept model and a production model.  Moreover, we do expect the further changes to the styling.

The All Electric Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV

  • Michigan based, Ford Motor Company, the US automotive manufacturer has finally stepped firmly into the fast evolving electric vehicle race with the unveiling of its ‘new breed of Mustang’, the all-electric Mustang Mach-e sport utility vehicle (SUV), ahead of the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show.
  • Though Ford had commenced work on an electric vehicle model a few years ago, CEO James Hackett ‘pulled the plug’ on the old model and sent everyone back to the drawing board. Early indications suggest that the strategy to start afresh on a more compelling EV may have worked for Ford. 
  • Ford is hoping to leverage the iconic status of the ‘Mustang’ marque to make up for its late entry into the battery-electric vehicle (BEV) sector.  Competitors from both the traditional automotive sector and new entrants are already well ahead in the race. Munich based Volkswagen Group and California based Tesla Inc, are two such examples already on their way race to market domination in the zero-emission race.  
  • The stylish eco-friendly battery-powered SUV success is critical for the auto manufacturer that has been blighted by poor performance and profit warnings.  The EV aims to hit the sweet spot between performance, looks and pricing.   
  • The all-electric SUV was launched to much pomp and show in LA on Sunday 17th November 2019.  Determined to show its confidence, Ford chose an aircraft hangar close to the operations of SpaceX, another undertaking by the Tesla co-founder Elon Musk
  • This is the first non-sports car to use the Mustang marque and will compete head-on with the already established electric vehicles like the Tesla Model X and the Jaguar I-PACE.  The Mustang Mach-e will also compete with the other EV models. The Mach-e will be manufactured at the Ford plant in Mexico and will be built on a brand-new EV architecture. 
  • The Ford Mustang Mach-e is part of the US$11.5 billion investment into electrification by 2022.  The company aim to become a leader in clean transportation and become carbon-neutral by 2030. 
  • The all-electric Mach-e comes in three variants (Mach-e, AWD & First Edition). Deliveries for all three variants are estimated as late 2020, with priority for the First Edition model.  
  • The pricing is indicative with final prices expected to be announced in 2020 when the electric vehicle enters production.  The Mustang BEV starts from £40,270 for the Mustang Mach-e, the Mustang Mach-e AWD has an indicative pricing of £46,570 and the Mustang Mach-e First Edition has an indicative pricing of £58,000.  The First Edition will be manufactured in limited volume. 
  • The Mach-e and AWD variants will be available in two battery capacity options: 98.8 kWh Extended Range (ER) & 75.7 Standard Range (SR).  The First Edition will only be available with the 98.8 kWh Extended Range (ER) option. 
  • The WLTP range for the Mach-e varies between 260 miles to 370 miles depending on the variant.   The Mach-e can achieve a zero-emission range of 370 miles (WLTP) with the Extended Range EV battery option.
  • With the Standard Range option, the AWD variant can achieve up to 260 miles WLTP, while with an Extended Range, the AWD can achieve up to 335 miles. 
  • All three variants can rapid charge up to 80% within 45 minutes. 
  • You can configure and pre-order the Mustang Mach-e on the Ford website.  Recommended pre-order deposit £1,000.

The All Electric Kia e-Niro

  • Kia Motors, the Korean automotive manufacturer is fast developing a portfolio of lower emission ‘eco’ vehicles, to include battery-electric vehicles cars.  The company already markets the Niro Plug-In Hybrid, Niro Self Charging Hybrid, New Sportage 48-Volt Mild Hybrid, All-New Soul EV and the All-New Kia e-Niro electric SUV.
  • Kia launched the all-electric Kia e-Niro in 2018 at the International Electric Vehicle Expo in Korea. The Kia Niro concept was unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show. The e-Niro order book opened in the UK in January 2019.
  • The all-electric Kia e-Niro has been on a good start since its launch earlier in the year.  The BEV SUV won the prestigious ‘2019 What Car? Car of the Year’ accolade, making it the first electric car to win this award. 
  • The e-Niro also won the Carwow ‘Eco Award’ at the 2019 Car of the Year award.  Other awards won this year include the ‘Affordable Electric Car of the Year’ at the Auto Express awards and ‘Game-Changer’ at the Autocar awards. 
  • In fact, given the unprecedented levels of interest in the Kia e-Niro First Edition, the initial production sold out within a month of its launch in April 2019.  However, cars can continue to be reserved for delivery in 2020.  
  • The success of the Kia e-Niro is not surprising.  The all-electric SUV is positioned and priced at £36,495 as ‘affordable’ and relative to all-electric SUVs like the Jaguar I-PACE (£64,495) and the Audi e-tron (£71,520), the e-Niro is certainly far more ‘price accessible’ for potential buyers on a budget.  But is is not only the more attractive ‘acquisition cost’ that has fuelled the e-Niro success, but also the modest running costs.  According to the car review website Parkers, the most efficient electric cars can travel three times the distance of their petrol or diesel rivals.  The Kia e-Niro was on top of the list! 
  • The EV has a winning formula: affordable pricing, long zero-emission range of 282 miles and rapid charging (the EV battery can be recharged up to 80% in less than 60 minutes).  All with a seven-year/ 100,000 miles warranty.  
  • The 64 kWh li-ion polymer battery can achieve a ‘city range’ of up to 382 miles (WLTP).  
  • The pure electric SUV is packed with technology to include, smart cruise control (SCC), smart regenerative braking, forward collision-avoidance assist (FCA), electronic parking brake, lane following assist (LFA) and wireless phone charging.   
  • The Kia e-Niro BEV is approved for the U.K. government plug-in car grant (PiCG).
  • This EV has been conceived for the ‘masses’ seeking to migrate to zero-emission driving without having to ‘mortgage the house’ or constantly fear ‘range anxiety’.  In fact, the automotive manufacturer’s deliberately positioning the design of the electric car as ‘regular’ is part of its aim to make it an ‘easy’ and ‘familiar’ step to electric driving.
