The upcoming Paris motor show is going to host the unveiling of Volkswagen‘s very first all-electric vehicle, as per an interview with company chairman Herbert Diess in German magazine WirstschaftWoche. The car will be approximately Golf-sized, according to the chairman, but will feel as roomy as a Passat on the within, thanks to area saved via lighter frame building and construction and usage of the electrical drivetrain. It’s on track for a release in late 2018 or early 2019, which remains in keeping with their earlier stated goal of providing a range of EVs by 2020.

The highlight feature of this vehicle might be the charging speed, however, which Autocar says will offer it 300 miles of travel on simply one, 15-minute charge. Even for electric vehicles with huge batteries and lots of variety, recharging time has actually been the essential sticking point– Tesla’s supercharger stations will accomplish an 80 percent charge in around 45 minutes, for example.

A 15-minute for 300 miles would be really outstanding in a production car. Volkswagen-owned Porsche declared an 80 percent charge in 15 minutes for its Mission E Concept, revealed last year, with a max variety on a full charge of 310 miles. That speed needs an 800 volt charging rate, that is something Porsche is actively seeking to develop into charging facilities.

It’s not likely that a 2019 Volkswagen all-electric will have the ability to benefit from this kind of charging tech extensively, knowing the charging infrastructure changed required, however it would still be a big statement from the car-maker to offer the spec in a shipping automobile.

Along with the quick charging capability, Volkswagen likewise states they’re intending to field a car that in fact costs lower than standard fuel-burning cars. Volkswagen has electric variations of the Golf and Up, but this upcoming automobile will be its first devoted electric model.
