Ah, the Tesla “secret sauce.” Add Mercedes EQC to the list, by the way. It’s efficiency. The Audi’s battery is almost twice the size of the Model 3 SR Plus, yet the SR Plus gets significantly more range. I presume efficiency comes from: More efficient motor More efficient electronics (inverter) More efficient regenerative braking Better software I’ve done some reading and learned that Tesla has come cutting edge software to simulate electric motor designs. They can optimize their motors in ways beyond what other manufacturers can do. Part of it is weight. Particularly the Audi is very heavy, which is why I threw in the Tesla Model S with a much larger battery (5% bigger than the Audi), but still, the Tesla is much more efficient.
What would motivate you to buy a Tesla electric car in 2020? 1. It would be a good local charging infrastructure where you can charge an EV almost everywhere (like Netherlands has) - this would be the biggest motivation. Richard Petek's answer to Which country has the best electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure? Amsterdam, Netherlands. Source: Plugshare.com 2. Of course it is the purchase price of good EVs like Tesla Model 3 or Model Y. I know that those cars pay off themselves with lower charging cost and significantly less maintenance, but it would take about 15 years for me since I don’t drive a lot. But on the other hand I don’t want a car with a small battery wehre I would need to make annoyingly many charging stops to get somewhere. One stop every 2 hours is excellent, one every 1,5 hours is somewhat OK, one every 1 hour of driving on a freeway is simply an annoyance too much. 3. Range. Range isn’t really an issue anymore. Any car that has an EPA range of 400 km (250 miles) is OK - for those who don’t know it, this is the range at approximately 90 km/h (55 mph). At freeway speeds of 120 km/h (75 mph) this drops to 300 km (roughly 200 miles), in winter this drops to 250 km (160 miles). Since nobody drives from 100% to 0%, it actually requires charging stops every 150–200 km (100–130 miles). While for some people this might be a problem, for me this is already OK. Of course, a bit more won’t hurt either, so a Model 3 / Model Y Long Range is even better at that point. 4. Rapid charging speed That’s the point where most EVs differentiate. Teslas are great, all charge at 120 kW and more, some go for a short time to 200 kW or even more. Even the cheapest Model 3 SR+ can briefly go to 170 kW. No current competition does that - with the exception of the extremely expensive sports car Porsche Taycan (which is, by the way, the most inefficient EV on the market) and the quite expensive Audi E-Tron, which is fairly inefficient too. Teslas really have no competition, so that’s the point where Model 3 and Model Y really shine. For those who want to nitpick, yes, Audi e-Tron is a competitor, but it has significantly less range. And it is expensive. The only non-Teslas might be the new kids on the block, the Peugeot e-208 and the Opel Corsa-e . Both are in the B- / supermini segment which should supposedly charge at up to 100 kW. If this is true, they should be an interesting smaller alternative (mostly for the European market), if not, they are just another marketing miss. We’ll see. Last note: just a few days ago has the Ionity rapid charging network significantly risen its charging prices - to EUR 0.79 per kWh (including VAT). IONITY - WHERE & HOW Luckily there is Tesla which charges on its Supercharger network significantly more reasonable prices, on average only 40% - 50% of it. Tesla Supercharging Tesla shows the way that the only way to really go electric is - Tesla. Everybody else just shies away its customers.
The Porsche Taycan (rhymes with “pie pan’) has low range because it is heavy and inefficient. Basically you have drag and weight and rest is the efficiency of the drivetrain: battery, inverter, motor and gearbox, but look at the difference: The Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron have 69 and 74 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) respectively and yield slightly over 200 miles in range from their 95 kWh batteries. The Tesla Model S with 111 MPGe gives 373 miles from its 100 kWh battery, and the smaller Model 3 has 121 MPGe and gives 322 miles of range from its smaller 75 kWh battery. I think Tesla designs more efficient motors and has an advantage in its control software. Model S is also 238 lbs lighter than the Taycan even though the battery is a little bigger. Shown below is the Jaguar I-Pace that is only a little less efficient the Taycan and the e-tron, even though it is lighter than the Tesla. The more extreme example is the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus with more than twice the efficiency of the Taycan, 141 MPGe. You’ll notice that the range of the I-Pace and Model 3 SR+ are comparable only because the I-Pace battery is nearly twice as big. So when you ask why Taycan has such low range, I have to say “compared to what?” Compared to a Tesla, almost everything has low range.
By when can we expect Honda, Hyundai, Toyota and such companies to roll out electric vehicles? Hyundai (and Kia, part of the same group) are already making them, Hyundai with its Ioniq (hatchback/sedan) and especially Kona Electric and Kia offers the e-Soul and e-Niro, all being on the same platform, but different versions of crossovers / small SUVs. Recently they were surpassed by Volkswagen ID.3 (and other EVs from the same platform which will come from the Volkswagen Group), but until that moment they were the next best thing after Tesla in the affordable segment, competing against the base version of the Model 3 SR+. They are right on par with Nissan, Renault, Peugeot/Opel, BYD and NIO. If not better. They also plan a new Ioniq platform which will be even better. Yes, the Audi e-Tron is a better car and charges twice as fast, but also almost twice as expensive. Honda and Toyota? They are a totally different story. They are betting their odds on hydrogen (which will be a total disaster for reasons which are beyond this question) and will be veeery late to the game. I’ve heard some rumours about 2025, but don’t quote me on that.
The answer how is very simple. By introducing in 2019 a car that will out-compete the Tesla Model 3 in price / performance and prepare the production line so it will exceed the production numbers of Tesla. This means, produce at least 30.000 EVs per month, starting on first January 2020. This means - a car that is practical as the VW Golf, the same build quality, matches the Model 3 in performance (similar range and similar rapid charging speed) - and all of this at a much lower price than the Model 3 since VW won’t have the Autopilot and OTA updates. It’s more than 5 years behind Tesla in technology, probably 10. In essence - a Kia e-Niro replica with a 60 / 80 kWh battery, 100 kW real-life CCS rapid charging speed and at least 20% lower price than the Tesla Model 3. That one, at a rate of at least 30.000 cars per month (sustained rate) would be a Tesla killer. Actually, not a killer, but a serious competitor. And of course VW would need to have a battery supply that can match these production numbers. VW cannot wait too long, somewhere in 2020 the Tesla factory in Shanghai will start with its production, increasing the production numbers of Teslas to close to 50.000 cars per month by the end of 2021 - or at least somewhere in 2022. And that’s the whole strategy which VW needs. You asked how. But will VW do it? Of course not. Currently they are producing the e-Golf which is two classes inferior to the Model 3, VW e-UP is a small city commuter, and they are starting the production of Audi e-Tron which will go in low-production because it is to expensive for the price which they announced. They will sell it at a loss. Nobody can produce 30.000 cars per month if each car looses money. Tesla makes theirs at 20%+ margin. Update 1 (April 2019): There is some hope that VW will get to up to 40.000 electric cars across the whole VW group, including all models (VW, Audi, Seat, Porsche, Skoda) once LG Chem finishes it’s battery company in Poland, but this may be in best case scenario somewhere in 2022. Tesla splits it’s numbers across 3 models: Model S, 3 and X. Soon coming the Y. Who knows how many brands and models will VW group introduce. With having them in low production numbers, they will (once again) shoot in their own foot. Update 2 (June 2019): According to specifications. the VW ID.3 is 4,26 m long. That the class of VW Golf which is one class lower than VW Passat or Audi A4 which competes to Model 3. And that fairly small ID.3 is supposedly competing with Tesla Model 3? Update 3 (October 2019): This answer is already a bit dated, but I will leave it as it started in March 2019. Just a small update: the VW ID.3 with the medium battery has in Germany a “recommended” price of 40.000 to 50.000 Euro, depending whether it has VW’s version of adaptive cruise control and auto-steering or not (and a few minor details). This is Tesla Model 3 price range. At these prices VW should forget to sell a serious amount of them. People are not stupid. They will go for the Model 3 - either the SR+ or LR. The first one beats it with technology, the second doesn’t do just that - it is in a different league.
