Volkswagen ID.3 vs. Nissan LEAF & Hyundai Kona EV — Range & Price Comparisons

We still don’t have much info on the Volkswagen ID.3, but we have a little bit to go on regarding price and range.

The base version of the ID.3 is supposed to be under €30,000. I’m assuming that means just under, so will round up to €30,000. The “up to” (idealistic) WLTP range on that trim is 330 km (205 miles). How do these figures compare to the Nissan LEAF and Hyundai Kona EV?

Top Reasons To Buy These 13 Electric Vehicles

Some people like to say that we here at CleanTechnica only write about Tesla, only care about Tesla, only want to hug Tesla, and only promote Tesla’s vehicles. That’s not true. We’ve actually published more than 1,000 articles regarding the Nissan LEAF, hundreds regarding the Chevy Bolt, hundreds regarding the Renault Zoe, hundreds regarding the BMW i3, and many more.

Regional Road Trips More Convenient In A Tesla Than A Gasmobile

One of the most persistent incorrect assumptions about electric vehicles is that they’re less convenient than gasmobiles.

It seems like LG Chem has battery contracts with every single automaker (it might be more like 60%). SK Innovation and Samsung SDI, medium-sized battery producers, also call Korea home. And then there are Hyundai and Kia, or Hyundai–Kia if you combine them due to their intertwined investment structure. These large automakers have produced highly acclaimed electric vehicles, but they struggle to produce a large number of them — or just don’t care to do so.

Tesla Shines In June, But Zoe Holds Onto #1 In 2019 In Germany — EV…

The German plug-in vehicle (PEV) market continued on the right track in June, having registered 8,631 units. Fully electric vehicles (BEVs) were up strong, +117% year over year (YoY), compensating for the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) drop of –9%, and all-electrics now represent two-thirds of plug-in registrations. The PEV share of the overall auto market was 2.7% in May, with BEVs alone hitting 1.8%. That pushed the 2019 plug-in share slightly up, to 2.6% (1.7% BEV).
