Top Tesla Alternatives and their Offerings that stole the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018

Byton SUV Tesla 2018 CES

1- Chinese startup with their Electric SUV priced $45K

The spirit of Faraday Future hovered on Sunday at the elegant launch of Byton’s electric and autonomous SUV at CES. In 2017, Faraday Futures’ billionaire manager Jia Yueting watched in horror as his seemingly self-propelled FF91 car could not be parked at the opening. This was only the beginning of a dreadful year when Faraday Future abandoned plans for a Nevada assembly plant, bleeding workers, and made little progress in the FF91.

Byton’s CEO, former BMW CEO Carsten Koller, has led a less catastrophic series this year, despite dry-ice hurricanes and even pumped music.

The new Byton vehicle concept is designed for autonomous driving, including the first rotating front seats in a production car that will turn the car into a “digital lounge,” Breitfeld said. Although the SUV will improve self-service at street level 3 by 2020, Byton announces an independent technology partner this month.

The presentation was never overdone. “We are building a smart new-generation device to enrich your driving experience and give you the time to enjoy everything you love to do,” said Henrik Wenders, vice president of marketing at Byton. “We do not redefine cars, we redefine life.”

Breitfeld was enthusiastic about the side-by-side operation of the vehicle, a 1.25-meter screen covering the entire image. Its “multi-dimensional” user interface can be controlled with a handful of gestures or words, thanks to Amazon’s speech recognition technology.

The most misleading feature is probably a built-in comfort sensor to measure occupant heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation. “The car will function as a portable device and provide important health advice,” said Daniel Kirchert, president of Byton. It is hard to imagine that the board is less than recommended to sit in a digital room and do more cycling or running.

The car will use face recognition to open its doors, and it has tiny cameras instead of side mirrors. The steering wheel has a tablet with a touchscreen in the middle for easy navigation and entertainment, and intelligent management features go via a 5G connection that can reach 10 gigabits per second.

Byton says the first car will leave production in 2019 and be sold early in China and arrive in the United States. UU and Europe in 2020. If the business is successful, the first Byton could arrive before most of its owners have a 5G wireless plan for the connection. Ericsson estimates [PDF] that only 15% of Americans in 2022 will have access to 5G at gigabit speeds.

Byton points directly to the Tesla 3 model, with a base version of $ 45,000 offering 402 kilometers of range (compared to 354 kilometers or 220 miles) and a high-performance version with two engines exceeding 523 kilometers. Breitfeld said a fast-charging system would bring the car to 80 percent of its range in just 30 minutes.

But how realistic are Byton’s ambitions? In 2016, Faraday Future and Lucid Motors, your Chinese partner in the departure of EV, promised production vehicles within two years. So far, they have not even started to build their factories.

Byton’s origins date back to 2014, when Foxconn, the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer, acquired a stake in Harmony Auto. Harmony Auto is one of the largest car dealers in China and specializes in electric and high-end vehicles, including Tesla. Harmony Auto, Foxconn, and Tencent then signed an agreement to develop their own electric vehicles.

In March 2016, this led to the founding of the Future Mobility Corporation (FMC) under the leadership of Breitfeld and Kirchert, another former member of the BMW Board of Directors. But Foxconn and Tencent had problems, forcing Harmony Auto to turn to other investors to finance FMC’s expansion. According to the Chinese media, the latest round of financing in August includes investments by a Chinese retailer, a real estate holding and at least one state-owned company.

Byton is FMC’s automotive brand and the name of its US subsidiary, which will develop autonomous and interconnected technologies in Silicon Valley.

Fisker Emotion CES 2018 Tesla Alternative

2- Fisker Emotion to set things in motion (9 mins. charged 100%)

The model, officially unveiled this week at CES in Las Vegas, also allows 125 miles of charging in just nine minutes, thanks to the latest battery technology.

Even more amazing is a Fisker-developed plan to develop a 500-mile battery that will recharge in a minute.

Solid state technology would replace lithium-ion technology, but probably a prototype will be ready by 2023.

Now you have to deal with the 143 kW lithium-ion battery from EMotion, which has the highest energy density in the world.

It will start at $ 129,900 (£ 95,000) but has to wait until 2019 before getting behind the wheel.

EMotion performance numbers have not been confirmed yet, but a top speed in excess of 160mph is likely.

The butterfly doors, inspired by the style of the Tesla Model X, also have hinged rear doors that look like nothing else on the market.

Insider’s Insight revealed on Twitter by founder Henry Fisker shows a brown leather finish.

And each seat has a screen with room for the rear legs, a focus for the passengers in the back.

The EMotion will also incorporate connected technology and LiDAR sensors for driverless systems.

 

Kia Niro 2018 CES Tesla Alternative to buy

3- Kia Niro Electric

Noteworthy is the 64.2 kWh / 150 kW powertrain mirror, which comes in the strongest European Kona Electric. It is said that the Kona could eventually be published in the USU. Kia has made no official announcement about the launch of a Niro EV.

The Kia Niro compact electric crossover is today equipped with a “man-machine interface” or HMI

Kia says the EV concept vehicle combines its “design powers” with a highly efficient electric drive system. It is the next step in the efforts of the Korean electric vehicle brand and a sign of where the Kia brand will go in the years to come.

The Niro EV concept, developed by Kia’s Korean design studio, uses a new-generation powertrain that uses new production technologies for Kia’s next-generation electric vehicles. Power is supplied by a lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 64 kWh and a capacity of 150 kW.

Gone is a traditional grill and in its place is a smooth interactive billboard with an extremely thin lamp technology on the front.

The vehicle is inspired by the Niro, which also comes in a hybrid version and sells well, with an anticipated plug-in hybrid version.

 

rinspeed CES 2018 Tesla Motors

4- Rinspeed Snap

Rinspeed, based in Switzerland, presented a new version of vehicle mobility with Snap in two parts.

To extend life and be more eco-friendly, the concept features a skateboard chassis with integrated powertrain from ZF and a passenger gondola.

The top is quickly removed and used for design camping or as a mobile business. Other innovations include portable storage such as drink holders and urban farming, which Rinspeed played with strawberries and mint for the infusion of tea.

Exactly what you expected from someone, right?

With all the equipment in the base, Rinspeed postulates that the lifespan is partially extended, as the upper part can be maintained when it is necessary to replace the lower part. The vehicle computer system includes Level 5 autonomous capability and can also be replaced by skateboarding while keeping the vehicle up to date.

Smart Vision EQ for 2 - CES 2018 Tesla Motors

5- Smart Vision EQ for 2

Daimler’s “New Vision for Urban Mobility” is a solution to a growing need.

The Smart-Vision EQ ForTwo Two independent electric seats guarantee space outdoors thanks to the intelligent use of space.

A carpool solution that eliminates unnecessary elements such as steering wheel and pedals. If they do not carry people, the manufacturer will show a rolling panel to show weather, sports scores, etc. in the city centers.

 

Hyundai FCEV 2018 CES Tesla Motors

6- Hyundai SUV Concept

One of the first proponents of fuel cell vehicles and one of the three who sold them in the United States. UU., Hyundai presents its replacement for the Tucson SUV with a range of up to 500 miles.

The estimated cost of less than $ 50,000 is also more reasonable for the car, which seems fairly normal and has features such as an AI cab with voice recognition and “comfort” monitoring of the driver’s seat.

From 2020, the 161 horses are expected to be an improvement over the existing model.
