The perfect electric car unveiled for World EV Day

The perfect electric car for 2021 will come up with the charging speed of the Porsche Taycan, the everyday suitability of a Citroen e-Berlingo, the interior of a BMW i3 and the range of a Mercedes EQS. These and other features were combined to create the Autovia EV-21, which will be unveiled on World EV Day today.

Autovia, publisher of Auto Express, Carbuyer, and DrivingElectric, analyzed data from Driver Power’s owner satisfaction survey, bundled market intelligence from the group’s auto sales site BuyaCar.co.uk, and used its own expert knowledge to identify the qualities of car buyers Think the perfect EV.

The result is the Autovia EV-21, a hypothetical car made up of the key elements of the best new electric cars sold today, a vehicle that proves that the turning point for new electric cars is already here.

Performance, practicality and affordability will be essential qualities in attracting die-hard motorists to any new model – especially when it comes to an electric car. But the Autovia EV-21 featured in our exclusive images proves that all the essentials for a mass market breakthrough have been achieved in the fast growing range of electric vehicles already on the UK’s roads.

The Autovia EV-21 includes elements of models from the entire EV spectrum. The MG5 donates its affordable price; At £ 26,495 under the government’s plug-in car grant, it offers more range per pound than any other electric vehicle. And his £ 6 a month service plan is another low point; In fact, the £ 72 annual cost is lower than the AA breakdown insurance that is included as part of the package. But when it comes to operating costs, the Opel Corsa-e is the star. The company offers a free British Gas recharge point and credits that are an effective way to pay for 30,000 miles of electricity.

Warranty coverage comes from the Lexus UX300e because the company’s Relax Warranty extends the standard three-year package to 10 years or 100,000 miles as long as it is serviced by the dealer.

The charging speed comes from the Audi e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan with their 800-volt electrical systems. The Audi can add 60 miles of range for every five minutes it’s charged. But it is the Mercedes EQS that gives the Autovia EV-21 its full range. At 479 miles in length, it is capable of traveling from London to Glasgow on a single load.

And it is the Mercedes EQS and the equally talented Hyundai Ioniq 5 that make the EV-21 so comfortable to ride. There are no better electric vehicles that can travel long distances. When it comes to performance, it’s the Rimac Nevera that donates under two seconds of 0-60 mph time and a top speed of 254 mph, while it’s the Porsche Taycan that is Autovia’s EV handling scale.

The MINI Electric, with its cheeky looks and eager chassis, provides the decisive fun factor, while the Honda e does without its gimmicks – including a virtual aquarium that can be displayed on the car’s screens. The BMW i3 is the oldest car here, but its beautifully designed interior with a mix of light woods and fabrics made from plant fibers not only looks great, it also underlines its eco-quality.

After all, it is the Citroen e-Berlingo that gives up its practicality. Its box-shaped van origin means it can transport seven people, while folding down all the seats provides 4,000 liters of space.

Autovia Editor-in-Chief Steve Fowler said, “Unveiling our own perfect EV by combining the best EVs available in one hypothetical car is the best way to illustrate that the ultimate EV breakthrough is closer than many people realize.

“We took into account every aspect that people love about the best electric vehicles on the market today, from price or running costs, to charging speed and range, to practicality, convenience and the type of technological devices in the car.

“It shows that most of the perceived problems preventing people from taking the leap with an electric vehicle have already been resolved and that the next step is to bring all of these solutions together in the next generation of electric vehicles.

“We are confident that this will happen sooner than many people believe, and our imagined perfect electric vehicle will not remain hypothetical for long.”
