Polestar 2 from Volvo is now available with us

Polestar 2 from Volvo is now available with us

The purely electric hatchback from Volvo’s Polestar subsidiary is available immediately at JB CarConcept as a test and comparison car. In terms of design, both inside and out, the relationship to other Volvo models is unmistakable. In terms of market positioning, the Polestar 2 is a direct competitor to the Tesla Model 3.

Technical features and key data for the Polestar 2, which is bookable at JB CarConcept:

  • The body is based on the well-known Volvo XC 40 platform
  • Length: 4,60 m, width: 1,86 m, weight: 2.120 Kg
  • Two synchronous electric motors (the Model 3 is equipped with one asynchronous and one synchronous motor each)
  • Performance 300 kW (408 PS), torque: 660 Nm, battery: 78 kWh, WLTP range: ca. 470 km
  • All wheel drive, which varies from 100% power to the front axle to 30% front, 70% rear
  • Charging capacity: up to 150 kW possible, depending on the charging station
  • Electric tailgate, vegan interior and trailer coupling
  • Performance package with Brembo brakes, Öhlins DFV shock absorbers and 20" forged aluminium wheels

As a rather narrowly cut sports saloon, the interior isn’t that far away from the classic style of making cars. This is in contrast with the competition at Tesla. Fit, finish and equipment are at the higher end of the scale, as you’d expect from Volvo.

One special feature to note: the infotainment uses the Android Automotive OS operating system, which makes its operating concept clearly different from other cars. That makes the Polestar perfect for comparisons and to get reactions from consumers.

Regardless of the projects you are planning with the Polestar 2, we will procure comparable electric and combustion engine cars such as the BMW iX3, Tesla Model 3, BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 or A5, Mercedes C Class or CLA Coupé. And we make sure that the cars match your specifications in terms of motorisation, equipment, colour etc.

Continuous supply of new models for your testing

Continuous supply of new models for your testing

The requirements you place on cars is diverse, whether it’s for tests, competitor analysis or for comparative drives. We have our own stock of vehicles to efficiently support you in research and development, market research, product comparison, benchmarking and other similar projects. We expand and update our fleet continuously, based on developments in the marketplace and your individual needs.

Below is a selection of vehicles that have been ordered or are ready to be delivered:

  • VW ID.3 – now you can: the first car developed exclusively for electromobility from the world’s largest car manufacturer. We’ve ordered four already.
  • Peugeot e-208 – 100% electric powertrain, chic and perfect for dynamic urban mobility.
  • Opel Corsa-E – ready for the future and exclusively electric, this Corsa-e features fast charging and a range of up to 337 km based on WLTP
  • Honda-e – just introduced by Honda, the Japanese carmaker’s concept for the future has already been ordered by us.
  • Byton M-Byte – the first mass produced car from Chinese start-up Byton, unveiled at the IAA and available through us as soon as the first cars are delivered.
  • Porsche 911 992 Turbo S – “leaked” according to AutoBild, then unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show at the beginning of March and we’ve already placed an order for “the heart of Porsche”.
  • Ford Mustang Mach-E – “untamed, electric” is what Ford says about its first completely electric SUV. We’ve placed an order for 2 Mach-Es.
  • Polestar 2 – the 408 hp electric hatchback from Volvo’s subsidiary is a Swedish-Chinese mix and is coming to the market soon, and to JB CarConcept as a test vehicle.
  • Hyundai 45 – not on the market yet, but already considered as a strong competitor for the Tesla Model Y. The new Korean electro-SUV has already been spotted testing at the Nürburgring. The rumours suggest 800 volt charging technology. Reason enough for us to put in an order to reserve two Hyundai 45.

On top of these models, we’re constantly expanding our pool of electric vehicles for competitor analysis, tests and comparative drives. We currently have over 350 electric vehicles available on an ongoing basis. The SION from Sono Motors, the e.GO Life from Aachen and the Ford Focus Electric will also be added soon.

Take advantage of our constantly expanding pool of vehicles as well as our competence in sourcing vehicles in any desired specification (brand, type, colour, drivetrain, equipment, etc.) for long-term and short-term projects. Get in touch with us quickly and easily here.

Book the new Tesla Model Y at JB CarConcept now

Book the new Tesla Model Y at JB CarConcept now

We’ve made a great deal for your test and comparative drives. Even though the Tesla Model Y won’t be available through Tesla Germany until 2021, you can already book one at JB CarConcept.

After releasing the Model 3, which we also have available, the American electric car pioneer is on course to finally conquer the mass market with the Model Y. The Model 3 serves as the basis, with the same powertrain, batteries, touchscreen operation concept and interior design. But the new compact SUV is substantially larger: +18 cm of height, +6/7 cm of length. The advantages: a substantially higher seating position provider a greater field of view, easier entry, more headroom, a larger storage area with more variability (thanks to a large rear hatch), adjustable and foldable triple rear seating area, offering up to 1,900 litres of space. This makes transporting items that are 110 to 210 cm long no problem at all.

In addition to the Performance Version already available at JB CarConcept (all-wheel drive, fully loaded and a range of 480 km according to WLTP), just like in the Model 3, there will also be a Standard Version (only rear wheel drive) and a Long Range Version (up to 505 km based on WLTP).

What’s new for all Tesla cars is that a heat pump will be available to increase efficiency. As the price increase of the Model Y compared to the Model 3 is expected to be modest, it will be very exciting to see a comparison between traditional, internal combustion SUVs and the constantly growing electric competition (such as the Hyundai 45 or VW ID.4, for example). Range comparisons and cold temperature tests in particular will be very interesting with the Model Y. It will also provide new insights in terms of quality and finish, as these are areas in which Tesla generally still has room for improvement.

nextmove, our partner for electromobility, has already put a comprehensive test video online. As it’s still unique in Europe, they used our very own Tesla Model Y, of course.

You don’t want to wait until 2021 to do a comparative test with the Model Y? Then get in touch with us here or give us a call at: +49 (0) 2129 / 33 19 732 or +49 (0) 173 / 57 38 388. We can source relevant competitor vehicles, talk about your plans and prepare vehicles to your exact specifications.

Mini Cooper SE Electric: neu bei JB CarConcept für Test- und Vergleichsfahren

Mini Cooper SE Electric: newly available at JB CarConcept for tests and comparison drives

Now the Mini is also fully electric. And you can book it for your test and comparison drives for competition analysis at JB CarConcept. A few numbers for your plans: Peak power of 135 kW (184 PS), max. torque, 270 Nm, top speed 150 km/h (limited), battery capacity net 28.9 kWh, range according to NEDC approximately 242 to 270 km, quick charging possible, empty weight approximately 1,365 kg, trim level L, 3 doors.

A few first impressions from our crew: the electric Mini retains its typical driving characteristics. It makes one thing clear though: electric drive can be combined with driving pleasure and iconic design.

The drivetrain and other vital organs came from the related i3 (bookable at JB CarConcept) - which makes for a possible comparison. The electric Mini uses the proven front wheel drive/front engine layout. The body sits almost two centimetres higher than conventionally powered Minis on account of the battery. In contrast, the centre of gravity is about 3 centimetres lower. This gives an electric go-kart feel to the driving experience and made the AMS tests conclude that it was a properly cool little car.

With the Mini Cooper SE, MINI is ideally equipped for the era of electrically powered vehicles. Contemporary, modern, handy as ever and nimble. Comparisons with competitors such as the Nissan Leaf (also available from JB CarConcept) and Peugeot e-208 (reserved) should lead to interesting findings.

Are you looking for the fully electric Mini Cooper SE for test and comparison drives, in the CarClinic, for competition analysis or for research & development? Please contact us: +49 (0) 2129 / 33 19 732 or +49 (0) 173 / 57 38 388. We will discuss your project, procure the desired competitor vehicles and prepare them according to your requirements.
