If you are a die-hard electric car fan or an ordinary car enthusiast, then it is a great time to be alive. The auto industry is going through a revolution that shortly will swamp our planet.
Even though our estimates say that the breaking point will happen in 2023, when EVs will pass the moment of no return and start their dominance, but the 2018 that is just around the corner and the upcoming 2019 have already stored a great line up of electric cars and we are not only talking about Model 3.
Already existing models like Leaf and BMW i3 have gone through serious renovations, while manufacturers like Audi, Jaguar and Bentley have brand new vehicles up their sleeves. Some of these cars are rather affordable, while others were built only for deep pockets, but nevertheless be sure that all of them are groundbreaking in their own way and deserve your closest attention!

If one does not have access to electric powerpoints living in a tower block where there are no garages & those that do have no power points.
Then electrik cars they fucking useless.
LPG polute less
Good luck with those who only drive manual cars
Still to big to heavy and way to expansive…and what about battery degradation? Im not buying an EV just to have its resell value slashed by 50% 2 years later….Technological advances that will be made in next 5 years…will completely obliterate the older models value as well… so there we have it and im still driving my 14 year old ICE car run on e-85..
Tesla driver. Dies in fire crash. Google it
ABC 7 news.com. google
Look at news today on the accident of electric car…its crazy scary….ppl don't waste youre money…its too dangerous….firefighters didnt know how to deal with the fire in this car…remember water n electric..dont mix…electrocution. What a horrible way to die..
These cars are killing ppl. Don't buy them
How will future movies with electric cars be any exciting without the engine sounds?
Where is Rimac electronic car.
The voice pace in this video is unbearable…
wtf is with this robot voice ???
All the other car companies are out there playing a game called follow the leader. Want to jump ahead of Tesla? Make an ev that is great and can be sold for just under the Toyota Camry. You will own the masses.
All still so small mostly and not good for say a dog traveling in a crate 🙁
iPace, Mission E, EQC. these are what I'm waiting for.
This is an interesting time in the car market. I'm not convinced on EV's yet though. I think we're maybe 5 years away from a proper break-through. Give me an EV that drives like gas guzzler and then I’ll be sold
Tesla lit the fire ,thanks must go to Elon Musk coz he has really got the electric car industry moving.
Toyota seems to have the worst attitude about electric cars. Also on old cars. They refused to rebuild a 1988 corolla engine so I did it at local mechanic. A former Toyota worker says electric cars are a poor idea. Toyota is constantly babbling about their future hydrogen car. Toyota has promised to make 10 models by 2020, but they all look ridiculous golf carts. Toyota refuses to just put an electric engine in a petrol car.
Price point has to come down alot. Usefulness must always get better. Legislation wont be enough…because even if you banned the sale of new gas cars…people will still wrench on gas cars well into 2050 and beyond. Nobody truely likes public transit so cars will always be in demand. There will always be a want for cheap high performance.
I hate this era becaude i don't have enought money for an electric car and if i buy an conventional internal combustion car i can not sell it then because every one would like to have electric cars? what i should do??
Every one of these will be obsolete in 2 to 5 years and almost impossible to sell. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRangZG-EgE&t=12s
I'm all for Hybrid's being the standard type or the only type of car in the next 15 years. Eventually yeah fully ICE vehicles will be gone, but not tomorrow. And by tomorrow I mean next 10-15 years. Fully EV's being the ONLY type of car available from whatever company, not just Tesla ( fuck them), isn't likely going to happen for another 30 years or more. If I had a choice between a Hybrid or Fully EV, I'd choose a Hybrid. But If EV's were the only type of vehicle to buy, I would definitely buy an Asian or European EV instead of an Apple…I mean Tesla. Sorry, I get those companies confused sometimes.
hey guys for a school project i made a electric car survey and i need a lot of responses, thanks guys <3 https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TJDN557
"new vehicles up their sleeves" – F
Please star to use SI units, for foreigners it isn't clear if 10 miles are much or little
Please stop telling the range in miles. The correct unit is km.
Electric car = exceptionally ugly car ?
When it will come to India ??
Honda, please make an electric small sports car or midsize coupe and sedan
we want to see solar panels on the electric cars of the future.
Come on now. They have electric cars that actually recharge themselves while they run. I am not impressed with these cars…..
what kind of accent do you have?
Chevy has a great car, the Chevy volt.
I was thinking that it would be better if cars ran on hydrogen and people were able to use a home Electrolysis device to make make hydrogen from water and electricity then they can have a endless supply of fuel. Fuel stations can also have a large Electrolysis device to make hydrogen and sell to customers. This would solve most of the worlds pollution
Electric car!!! Ya. Where's the power coming from?! Solar???? Wind???? (I'm guessing No.) Most likely if your plugging in in to your house…It's Nuclear. It's a Nuclear powered car. = More Nuclear Waste! (Not environmentally friendly at all….fail.)
I want an electric car but why do they have to make them all ugly as hell. If I got one of these as a gift I would replace alot of the parts and/or paint over the cars
Guy sounds like a robot.
Why haven't they made electric cars that have solar panels to recharge the batteries and you wouldn't have to stop and charge them? Does anyone know if this would work? I'm sure it's been thought of.
Only will buy a ev when charging stations are prevalent as gas stations and charging time becomes less than 10 mins
Put the manufacturer's name on the screen – just not the model number.
Is he a robot…..
I can't wait to buy my Hyundai IoniQ hybrid next year.
to many commercials to make it worth watching
