German rental company of electric vehicles Nextmove conducted a test of efficiency between the three premium electric crossover: Audi e-tron quattro, Tesla Model X Jaguar 90D and I-Pace battery is 90 kWh.
The test was carried out in parallel on all three cars, while driving them on the highway with a length of 87 km between Munich airport and Landshut, with an average speed of 120 km/h the Temperature “overboard” during the test was 8°C, the temperature inside each crossover was set at around 20°C.
Test results energy efficiency electrocreaser:
- Tesla Model X (drag coefficient of 0.25) showed the best results of energy consumption, only 24.8 kWh / 100 km.
- Audi e-tron quattro (drag coefficient of 0.27) showed 23% higher consumption of 30.5 kWh per 100 km.
- Jaguar I-Pace (drag coefficient is 0.29) spent 31,3 kWh / 100 km and consumed 26% more than the Model X.
Numbers don’t argue, they clearly demonstrate that to power the Tesla Model X will need much less energy.
Note that in the test deliberately used a Tesla Model X 90D to have parity of battery sizes from I-Pace and e-tron quattro.
Also pay attention to the impact of drag coefficient on the test results, the lower it is, the model, the smaller the power consumption of the vehicle. This proves that this value is a significant factor in the issue of fuel-efficient vehicles.
We will remind, earlier Nextmove tested the efficiency of the Tesla Model 3, Hyundai Ioniq Electric, Hyundai Kona Electric, Nissan Leaf-second generation, and the Renault ZOE on the autobahn.
