In regular updates, we will publish new vehicles in the P3 Charging Index and also make updates of already introduced vehicles. So in the next release, besides the real values of the Porsche Taycan, an update of the Tesla Model 3 will certainly be available. Furthermore, vehicles like the Peugeot e208 or the Opel Corsa-e will be measured and will be rated with the corresponding index by then. With the help of the P3 Charging Index, we initially wanted to create transparency and traceability in an electric vehicle market that is still far too opaque in the discussion of rapid charging capability today.
Since not every electric vehicle will be launched on the market in the future with the claim to be suitable for long-distance travel and thus serve a different customer use case, we will extend the index to other vehicle segments. In addition, classic vehicle segments will be separated as soon as a correspondingly comparable number of vehicles exists – this is to avoid the compact class having to compare itself with the sports segment. We are already working to ensure that we compare vehicles that are more focused on urban areas with other target figures, but that we want to offer at least the same transparency and traceability.
