Head of Volkswagen advanced technology Center: “our batteries prolong the life of the car»

Many people face uncertainty when they buy an electric car. Can they be sure the batteries will work?
Yes, certainly. For our new electric models we have created batteries at affordable prices, which have enough capacity to store energy to provide a power reserve on a single charge up to 550 km. Previously, battery modules were distributed in different places of the car, but now the battery is compactly located between the axles in the bottom of the body. This means that we have a Central point of energy distribution. This is one of the great advantages of our new MEB electric platform. Continue reading

“It’s like planes,” said Rebecca Lindland (Rebecca Lindland) from rebeccadrives.com, Model S and Model X were created a long time ago, but they continue to be the standard of electric vehicles. Lindland believes that the car is a commodity, not a subject of self-expression, so over time customers will notice increasingly long gaps between model upgrades, especially when it comes to self-driving car parks owned by corporations rather than individuals, so it is likely that cars will no longer be fashion.
