The race for having the electric car with the greater autonomy of the market it seems that has already begun. When Nissan launched the Leaf around the world put the hands to the head, because his adjusted autonomy resulted in the clients anxiety. However, now that the technology is advancing at giant steps, it seems that the chimera have electric cars with an autonomy and a loose-fitting is on the verge of disappear of our minds.
One of the manufacturers of cars that most is investing and working to have some levels of autonomy worthy in their electric cars is Volvo. The Swedish manufacturer we confirmed a while ago that your first car is a pure electric would come to the market for the year 2019. Best of all is that, as time passes and the date on which it could reach the market, the makers of the brand are releasing the first details on its technical characteristics.
Ago, more or less, a year and a half, the president and CEO of Volvo Håkan Samuelsson announced that his brand would have several models of hybrids and that in addition, would also have a model completely electric. The length of time it has gone through and we have witnessed the birth of multiple versions of their models with electric assistance in their engines. The first was the last generation of the XC90, as it mingled with the good work of his mechanics petrol T8 with the assistance of an electric motor.
, This same approach mechanic is spreading to all models of the Swedish manufacturer, including the new XC60. But in addition, Volvo will not be there, because the new 40 Series will also feature a mechanism of this type. However, the great surprise of all is that, when 2019 arrives, the Swedish brand will release their first electric model one hundred percent and will do on the new XC40 that we will see in Shanghai.
For this reason, the leaders of Volvo have started to drop some pearls on the autonomy that will be its electric car. According have commented, the first Volvo electric will have a range of some 250 miles. If we translate that to kilometers we are talking about which would be about 400 and some miles. If so, since would have more capacity than the future Tesla Model 3, then the car Elon Musk just announced some 340 kilometers of autonomy.
Will have to wait for the house of more details on the car for this first step forward, since it makes us think of the good work you are doing. At some point from here to 2019 we will know the final model or otherwise, if you decide to use any of the launch from here to then. As can be 40 Series.
