Future EVs: Every Electric Vehicle Coming SoonCar and Driver

Electric cars are the future, and each year we've seen automakers add more EVs to their lineups. Everyone is working on electric vehicles, from well-established existing manufacturers to new names such as Lucid, Canoo, and Rivian. We've compiled a list of every electric vehicle, from concept to production, that isn't available yet but will be soon.

Acura ZDX (Expected: Early 2024)

You may recognize the ZDX name from Acura's old coupe-SUV model, but this time around the moniker adorns a midsize crossover that becomes Acura's first EV when it arrives early next year. The 2024 ZDX rides on General Motors' Ultium battery platform—sharing components with the Cadillac Lyriq—and the 102.0-kWh battery will provide up to 325 miles of range. The 340-hp, single-motor, rear-wheel-drive A-Spec model will be joined by a 500-hp, dual-motor, all-wheel-drive Type S, which also wears upgraded brakes, adaptive dampers, and air suspension. The A-Spec should start around $60,000. —Caleb Miller

Alfa Romeo Giulia EV (Expected: 2025)

Alfa Romeo has confirmed the gas-powered Giulia (seen above) will be revamped in the coming years, dropping its Ferrari-derived V-6 in favor of an electric powertrain for 2025. We expect the base version will make around 350 horsepower, while the Veloce will produce closer to 800 horsepower. The top-of-the-line Giulia will continue to carry the historic Quadrifoglio name and should make upwards of 1000 horsepower. The new Giulia will be produced on the Stellantis Group's STLA Large platform, with 800-volt, ultra-rapid charging and a range of up to 500 miles. —Jack Fitzgerald

Apple Titan EV (Expected: 2026)

iPod, iPhone, iPad…iCar? The rumored Apple car—code-named Titan—has been in development for nearly a decade, and while its future has been put in doubt on numerous occasions, the latest murmurings suggest it will finally arrive in 2026. While Apple apparently abandoned plans for a full self-driving vehicle, the Apple car should still be capable of autonomous highway travel and will be built around a powerful onboard computer. The design hasn't been finalized, but Apple has reportedly moved away from a pod-like design for a more conventional shape. The tech giant is still searching for an automotive partner to supply the electric platform after talks with Hyundai fell through in 2021, and is said to be investing around $1 billion into Titan each year. Apple's not the only tech company considering an entry into the automotive market. Sony recently partnered with Honda on a new EV brand called Afeela, promising a similar product for 2026. —Caleb Miller

Audi A6 e-tron (Expected: 2023)

The Audi A6 e-tron is a concept for now, but Audi says it's super close to what the production car will look like. It's based on the scalable Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture that can be lengthened, lifted, and widened for a variety of different EV models. It will be sold alongside the gas-powered A6 and will join the PPE-based Q6 e-tron crossover in Audi's lineup. The A6 e-tron concept uses two electric motors with a combined output of 469 horsepower. All PPE vehicles have 800-volt charging capability, and this big sedan could have as much as 400 miles of range on a single charge. —Austin Irwin

Audi

Audi Q6 e-tron (Expected: 2024)

Audi will expand its electric SUV lineup with the Q6 e-tron, slotting in between the Q4 and Q8 e-tron crossovers and riding on the same PPE architecture that underpins the upcoming Porsche Macan EV. A roughly 93.0-kWh battery should provide up to 315 miles of range and the 800-volt setup will allow for rapid recharging. The dual-motor all-wheel-drive Q6 e-tron produces 375 horsepower while a sportier SQ6 e-tron model ups that to 482 ponies, with a boost mode adding about 20 hp for each model. On a prototype test drive, we found a comfortable, well-controlled ride and punchy acceleration. Production begins next year and the 2025 Q6 e-tron will sit alongside the gas-powered Q5 in Audi's lineup. —Caleb Miller

Five Bentley Models (Expected: 2025)

Bentley is planning a major pivot from 15-mpg land yachts to completely new models with fully-electric powertrains. Bentley says it will replace the existing Bentayga, Flying Spur, Continental GT coupe and convertible, and introduce an all-new model to its lineup by 2030. The first replacement should arrive sometime in 2025. —Austin Irwin

Bentley

BMW i5 (Expected: Late 2023)

BMW has paired the latest 5-series with a new electric variant dubbed the i5. The base eDrive40 model features a 335-hp motor powering the rear wheels, with the 84.3-kWh battery expected to eke out close to 300 miles of range. Until the full-fledged M variant (see below) arrives, the top dog in the i5 lineup will be the M60 xDrive, a dual-motor all-wheel-drive sports sedan good for 590 hp and a claimed 3.7-second sprint to 60 mph. The M60 shares the same battery, dropping the estimated range to 256 miles. The eDrive40 will start at $67,795 while the M60 will cost $85,095 when the EV sedans hit dealerships in the fall. —Caleb Miller

2024 bmw i5 edrive40
BMW

BMW i5 M (Expected: 2026)

Fender flares, a more aggressive stance, and 1136 horsepower will combine to produce the upcoming BMW i5 M, which won't arrive before than 2026. The new high-performance four-motor drivetrain will incorporate wheel-by-wheel torque vectoring and brake-by-motor energy regeneration, and will be capable of piloted drifting and tank turns where the vehicle can use its prodigious torque output to spin in place. While the more subdued i5 has already debuted—with its own set of high-performance batteries, active steering, and suspension fit for the Nurburgring—we can't help but keep our focus on the angrier i5 M with a drive control unit that's being referred to internally as the "Hand of God." Take the wheel, Jesus. —Austin Irwin

Buick Electra (Expected: 2024)

Buick has revived the nameplate of the 18-foot-long steel sled from 1959 for its new all-electric SUV, that's already been revealed for China. The Electra E5 uses GM's Ultium battery platform and should be roughly the same size as a Chevrolet Equinox. An investigation into trademarks may have revealed Buick's future lineup, with filings for Electra E1 through E9. We expect the Electra E5 to perform similarly to the already available Cadillac Lyriq, with a range of 300 miles and 340 horsepower. Buick hopes to put its tri-shield logo atop a fully-electric lineup by 2030, but we should see the first Electra sometime in 2024. —Austin Irwin

2025 buick electra e5

Cadillac Celestiq (Expected: Early 2024)

Cadillac wants to return to the days when the company could call itself the Standard of the World without getting scoffed at. At least that's the plan with the upcoming Celestiq, an extravagant EV that will be built by hand and cost upwards of $300K. That price puts it out of reach for all but the wealthiest people, but Cadillac envisions the Celestiq as aspirational rather than attainable. For the one percent who can afford one of these avant-garde 600-hp electric hatchbacks, each example can be uniquely tailored to the customers whims. Will it be enough to vault GM's luxury brand into the discussion with Bentley and Rolls-Royce? We'll have to wait and see once the Celestiq hits the streets of America's richest communities—likely at the start of 2024. —Eric Stafford

Cadillac

Cadillac Escalade iQ (Expected: Summer 2024)

The Cadillac Escalade—the big, brash SUV that's proved popular among rappers like Jay-Z and 50 Cent—is undergo an electric transformation with the new Escalade iQ. With over 200-kWh of capacity, the Ultium battery—shared with the GMC Hummer EV—provides an estimated 450 miles of range, while the dual-motor powertrain can provide up to 750 horsepower. The luxurious cabin is decked out with 55 inches of screen stretching across the entire dashboard and a 40-speaker sound system. The Escalade IQ will be offered with Super Cruise, General Motors' hands-free driving system, and will start around $130,000. —Caleb Miller

Canoo Pickup Truck (Expected: 2024)

Canoo is an electric automotive startup from California, and this is its pickup. For now, it is simply called Pickup Truck. The Canoo pickup promises more than 500 horsepower and at least 200 miles of range. It's smaller than what's typically found in the mid-size pickup segment, being two feet shorter than the Ford Ranger. Canoo says its pickup will be offered with a six- to eight-foot pickup bed with preorders open right now, and production starting sometime in 2024. The U.S. Army is also testing a modified version of the Pickup Truck. —Austin Irwin

2023 canoo pickup concept

Canoo Lifestyle Vehicle (Expected: 2023)

Like Canoo's pickup, this five- or seven-seat EV is built on a skateboard platform, similar to what BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen use to easily swap body styles on similar underpinnings. Canoo claims this little bus will have a range of 200 miles and up to 350 horsepower, with a starting price under $40,000. A delivery van version has attracted 4500 pre-orders from Walmart, while NASA has expressed interest in using the Lifestyle Vehicle for transport at the launch site for the upcoming Artemis moon-landing missions. Canoo has faced financial difficulties of late, but hopes to get production started this year —Caleb Miller

Chevrolet Blazer EV (Expected: Summer 2023)

We miss the boxy K5 Blazer of the 1980s and 1990s as much as anyone, but Chevy isn't trucking around with the SUV's next major transition. The Blazer EV, which will be sold alongside the gasoline-powered Blazer SUV, will offer an SS trim level that generates 557 horsepower with acceleration that could leave V-8 Camaros in its dust. Chevy plans to also offer less-aggressive trims that focus on affordability and range. While the EPA hasn't certified anything yet, Chevy is shooting for 320 miles for its long-driving Blazer EV RS model. The Blazer EV is scheduled to go on sale later in 2023, with the lowest-priced 1LT trim joining the lineup sometime in 2024. —Austin Irwin

Chevrolet Equinox EV (Expected: Late 2023)

Last year Chevy sold 212,072 units of its Equinox crossover, beating the likes of the Ford Escape, Hyundai Tucson, and Subaru Forester. It hopes to continue this success with an Equinox EV that should start around $30,000 and go on sale in the fall of 2023. The Equinox EV will offer a wide range of models starting with a base trim with 250 miles of range and 210 horsepower. More expensive trims offer up to 300 miles of range thanks to a larger battery pack, and dual-motor all-wheel-drive cars have 290 horsepower. —Joey Capparella

Chevrolet Silverado EV (Expected: 2023)

Turns out the GMC Hummer EV and SUV were a little taste of what we'll see from Chevy's upcoming all-electric Silverado. They'll be built under the same roof, with the Silverado also using GM's Ultium battery pack and offering up to 400 miles on a single charge. The Silverado EV will be offered from a fleet-oriented work truck trim to fully loaded RST models with 664 horsepower. In an effort to make good on its promise of 30 new EVs by 2025, production of Chevy's first electric pickup will begin this year. —Austin Irwin

Chevrolet Corvette EV and SUV (Expected: 2025)

The Corvette cinematic universe is about to plunge into a phase so wild that Marvel might start taking notes. Chevrolet has already confirmed that a fully electric Corvette is coming soon—sooner than we might think, since the E-Ray hybrid that recently broke cover was slated to make its debut first. The Corvette EV will use the same Ultium battery platform as other new GM EVs, and considering the General can get a fifty-trillion-ton Hummer EV to reach 60 mph in under 4 seconds, we have high hopes for the Corvette EV.

But wait, there's more! We're hearing rumors that the Corvette EV will launch into a new Corvette subbrand within GM, which will bring a host of new Corvette-branded models with it, including a four-door "coupe" and a high-performance crossover, which could easily position itself as a Ford Mustang Mach-E competitor—or something even beefier. —Andrew Krok

Chrysler Airflow Concept (Expected: 2025)

With the success of the Ford Mustang Mach-E in its crosshairs, Chrysler is planning a 400-mile crossover by 2025. The Airflow is just a concept, but the model is claimed to also offer Level 3 autonomous driving capability. The brand, which currently offers the Pacific minivan and Chrysler 300 sedan, plans to go fully electric by 2028. —Austin Irwin

Dodge Charger Daytona SRT EV (Expected: 2024)

Dodge is determined to keep the muscle car relevant well into the electric epoch, and it's given us quite the preview before its internal-combustion analogue has even left the dealership floor. The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept runs on an 800-volt electrical architecture called Banshee, and while performance details are still incredibly light, the automaker promises that its first beefcake EV will surpass the Hellcat's performance. A multi-speed transmission hopes to keep some of the muscle car's visceral nature alive, but the most interesting tech by far is the Fratzonic exhaust system, which uses actual piping to boost the EV's sound to a 126-decibel onslaught. —Andrew Krok

Dodge

Deus Vayanne (Expected: 2025)

While Austrian startup Deus (pronounced de-oos) is a complete unknown, the company has recruited proven partners for its first vehicle, the electric Vayanne hypercar. The curvy bodywork was penned by Italdesign, while Williams Advanced Engineering has been tasked with developing the 2200-hp powertrain. The company claims that with 1475 pound-feet of torque, the Vayanne launches to 62 mph in 1.99 seconds and on to a 248-mile top speed. We'll believe it when we see it. Just 99 units are planned for production, with Deus aiming to start deliveries in 2025. —Caleb Miller

Faraday Future FF91 (Expected: 2023)

The Faraday Future FF 91 was originally revealed back in 2017, and the California-based startup claims it finally delivered the first production unit in August. The sleek crossover boasts 1050 horsepower from a trio of electric motors, with a claimed sprint to 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds. According to the company, the 142.0-kWh battery delivers an EPA-estimated range of 381 miles. Prices for the 2.0 Futurist Alliance launch edition start at a whopping $309,000. Although Faraday Future has begun production at long last, its history of financial woes mean that the young automaker isn't out of the woods just yet. If FF 91 production truly is underway, we hope to drive the electric SUV in the near future. —Caleb Miller

Faraday Future

Fiat 500e (Expected: 2024)

Fiat's future calls for an all-EV lineup that includes just one model, the 500e minicar. Based on the model that's currently on sale in Europe, the 2024 500e combines the brand's retro-modern design language with a 117-hp electric motor and a battery that should be good for about 160 miles of driving range per charge. In a market where larger and more luxurious electric vehicles regularly deliver over 200 miles of driving range, the 500e will launch at a significant disadvantage. Fiat's plan though is to market it primarily in urban areas where drivers are less likely to require road-trip levels of range. We'll see the U.S.-market 500e debut in November 2023 and hit dealers in early 2024. —Drew Dorian

Fisker Ocean (Expected: 2023)

A stylish 300-mile-range electric SUV with a solar roof sounds promising, and Henrik Fisker's EV startup hopes to keep that promise with the Fisker Ocean. The Ocean earned a 360-mile range rating from the EPA when fitted with its biggest battery pack, a 113.0-kWh unit that is available in the top dual-motor all-wheel-drive trims. The most affordable Ocean, a single-motor front-wheel-drive version, will have a claimed 250 miles of range and start around $39,000. Fisker began producing the Ocean in the fourth quarter of 2022 and claims it delivered the first 22 units to U.S. customers in June, although we've yet to see one ourselves. —Austin Irwin

Fisker

Fisker Pear (Expected: 2025)

Fisker aims to conquer the entry-level EV market when it launches the Pear crossover in 2025. The starting prices is targeted at $29,900 (before destination), and the small SUV will offer rear- and all-wheel drive specifications with two battery options. Claimed range will be between 180 and 320 miles on the European test cycle; expect slightly lower estimates from the EPA. Fisker says the base model will hit 60 mph in a 6.3 seconds, while an Extreme model will further boost performance. Inside, an available front bench seat sits behind an optional 17.1-inch rotating display. Instead of a traditional trunk, the lift gate retracts into the bumper. Fisker previously suggested that the Pear could be built under contract by Foxconn at the Lordstown Assembly plant in Ohio. —Caleb Miller

Ford Explorer EV (Expected: 2023)

The Ford Explorer is among the most popular SUVs sold in the U.S., so giving it the fully electric treatment is an obvious move. Ford announced in May 2021 that its three-row SUV would be joining the Mustang Mach-E and the E-Transit electric van in Ford's growing electric lineup. Though the current Explorer offers a 318-hp hybrid V-6 powertrain, we suspect that, like with the Mach-E and F-150 Lightning, there are rear- and all-wheel-drive Explorer EV models planned. —Austin Irwin

GMC Sierra EV (Expected: Early 2024)

Get ready for the GMC Sierra EV, the brand's first electric pickup truck. While it shares bones with the extroverted GMC Hummer EV, the Sierra is less extreme in many ways. That doesn't mean initial examples will be as affordable as its corporate counterpart, the upcoming Chevy Silverado EV. The electric Sierra will launch sometime in early 2024 with only the Denali Edition 1. This top-spec model includes a 754-hp all-wheel-drive powertrain with an estimated 400 miles of range—but it'll cost nearly $109K. That six-figure price includes GM's Super Cruise hands-free driving system, rear-wheel steering that enables Crab Walk, and an interior with the nicest materials GMC offers. Thankfully, less expensive Sierra EV models will follow in 2025. —Eric Stafford

Honda Prologue (Expected: 2024)

Honda doesn't currently offer a fully electric model in the U.S., but that's all about to change. Set to arrive in 2024, the Honda Prologue is a mid-size SUV that's around the same size as the Passport. Through a partnership with General Motors on EV powertrains, this new EV will use GM's Ultium battery packs and appears to share components with the Chevy Blazer EV. Initial renderings show that the Prologue has a clean design inside and out, but we don't yet know mechanical details. Expect single- and dual-motor configurations and multiple battery-pack sizes. As the name implies, the Prologue is the first of many upcoming electric vehicles from the brand. Acura also plans to add a fully electric model to its lineup that will be called ZDX. Honda has committed to selling only EVs by 2040. —Joey Capparella

Honda and Chevrolet Compact SUVs (Expected: 2027)

Adding to their combined efforts to produce the Acura ADX and Honda Prologue, GM and Honda will continue their partnership to create a line of affordable electric compact SUVs. The new models will share a common platform with alternative batteries and materials. The objective of these endeavors is to lower the cost of producing an EV to help shrink the pricing disparity between gasoline and electric models. The automakers say these new affordable models are planned to launch sometime in 2027. —Austin Irwin

Hyundai Ioniq 7 (Expected: 2024)

Built on the same E-GMP platform as the Ioniq 5 mentioned above, the Ioniq 7 will be similar to the current three-row Palisade in size. Currently, Hyundai has only shown us this concept, but judging by its current design language on production models, it's possible the real 7 could look even crazier. On a bigger SUV like this, we expect a large battery that could support at least 300 miles of range. —Austin Irwin

Hyundai Ioniq 5 N and 6 N (Expected: 2024)

Hyundai's hopped-up N division isn't about to cease existing as the Korean automaker shifts from internal combustion to electric propulsion. If anything, things are getting even wilder with the 601-hp Hyundai Ioniq 5 N. A boost mode unlocks an extra 40 ponies from the two motors, shooting the Ioniq 5 N to 60 mph in a claimed 3.4 seconds. There's also a drift mode for shredding tires, simulated gearshifts to create a more engaging electric driving experience, and three sound profiles including one that mimics the turbo four-cylinder from the Elantra N. Sales start early next year. The Ioniq 5 N is expected to be joined by an Ioniq 6 N, which will likely share the same hardware and should look something like the RN22e concept. —Andrew Krok

Jeep Recon (Expected: 2024)

Been waiting for an all-electric Jeep Wrangler? The forthcoming Recon isn't exactly that, but it's pretty dang close. Jeep claims it'll have "impressive" clearances for off-roading, and the EV SUV will have removable glass and doors too. A retractable roof and rear-mounted spare complete the Wrangler vibe. The Recon's legitimate trail-rated capabilities will be further supported by chunky tires and underbody protection. Locking diffs should help make the most of what's sure to be an all-wheel-drive powertrain. We don't yet know how much power it'll make or how long of range it'll have, but we expect those details to emerge well before the Jeep Recon is slated to start production sometime in 2024. —Eric Stafford

Jeep Wagoneer S (Expected: 2024)

Think of the Jeep Wagoneer S as an all-electric alternative to the more conventional Jeep Grand Cherokee. Many details about the company's upcoming mid-size EV SUV remain a mystery—like its actual name. Jeep says "Wagoneer S" is a placeholder while it picks an official title. That and more will be revealed before the Wagoneer S goes into production, likely sometime in 2024. For now, all we have are images of a sharply designed concept along with several tantalizing targets. Jeep claims the final model will have 400 miles of range, however, that figure will change based on how often drivers exploit its planned 600-hp electric powertrain. —Eric Stafford

Kia EV9 (Expected: Late 2023)

Kia is expanding its EV lineup literally and figuratively with this three-row mid-size SUV that will sit alongside the gas-powered Telluride. The production EV9 sticks to the chunky, squared-off look first seen on the 2021 concept car, offers six- or seven-seat arrangements, and features dual 12.3-inch screens on the dashboard. The base model will have a 215-hp rear-mounted motor and a 76.1-kWh battery, hitting 62 mph in 8.2 seconds. A 201-hp Long Range model is even slower at 9.4 seconds, with a 99.8-kWh battery providing roughly 300 miles of range. A sporty, all-wheel-drive GT-Line produces 379 ponies and zips to 62 mph in 5.3 seconds. The 800-volt architecture will allow the big-battery'd EV9 to replenish from 10 to 80 percent in under 25 minutes on a DC fast-charger. Sales start at the end of this year. —Caleb Miller

Lagonda All-Terrain (Expected: 2025)

Aston Martin relaunched the Lagonda name as an electric luxury brand, revealing an SUV concept in 2019 that was supposed to reach production by 2022. But after Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll orchestrated a buyout of the struggling company in 2020, the Lagonda subbrand was reportedly delayed until 2025. No updates on the revival have surfaced since. With Aston Martin's difficulty bringing the Valhalla and Vanquish mid-engined supercars to production after a clunky rollout of the V-12-powered Valkyrie, we're not sure if the Lagonda SUV will ever see the light of day. —Caleb Miller

Lincoln Star (Expected: 2024)

Lincoln aims to switch to a fully electric lineup by 2030. We expect a production version of the Star to arrive in late 2024 as a 2025 model year and become Lincoln's first EV. The Star concept revealed in 2022 looks half like a Lincoln Aviator and half like a spaceship. Lincoln says the production mid-sized two-row crossover will come with both rear- and all-wheel drive powertrain options. The concept's cabin features a full-width digital display on the dash, sculpted bucket seats, an integrated beverage chiller, crystal accents, and rose gold colored trim pieces. We expect range and power output to be similar to the Ford Mustang Mach-E, with a starting price around $70,000. —Jack Fitzgerald

Lotus Eletre (Expected: 2024)

Lotus revealed their upcoming 900-hp EV SUV this year which will be produced in Wuhan, China and arrive in the U.S. sometime in 2024. The entry model promises a whopping 600 horsepower with all-wheel drive. Lotus claims the Eletre will have roughly 315 miles of range and an 800-volt battery that can replenish two-thirds of its battery in 20 minutes using a 350-kW fast charger. The Eletre is shaping up to be the quickest vehicle Lotus has ever produced. —Austin Irwin

Lotus Envya (Expected: 2025)

Lotus is expanding its lineup, with an electric sedan, codenamed Type 133, set to follow the Eletre SUV. Spy photos show an aerodynamic silhouette with a sloping roof and a split headlight design. Powertrain details are still unknown, but we expect the sedan to rival cars like the Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S. Rumored to be called Envya, the sedan should be revealed this year but probably won't reach the U.S. until the 2025 model year. A smaller SUV and an electric sports car will arrive in the second half of the decade. —Caleb Miller

Lucid Gravity (Expected: 2024)

The Lucid Gravity name may sound familiar, seeing as how the automaker has not been shy about its aspirations to build an electric SUV. Lucid says it will show its first SUV in November of this year, with production commencing in late 2024. From the few pictures we've seen, the Gravity's front end doesn't look all that different from the Air sedan, and it carries the same addiction to large glass roof panels as its four-door sibling. Lucid promises "supercar performance" here, which won't come as a surprise, considering some Air variants make upward of 1200 horsepower. —Andrew Krok

The new Grecale crossover will be a key part of Maserati's expanding EV lineup. All Maserati EVs will wear the Folgore name (that's Italian for "lightning"), and Maserati has now revealed the 2024 Grecale Folgore alongside the standard model. The gas-powered 2023 Grecale GT, Modena, and Trofeo models are scheduled to arrive this summer, while the Folgore won't reach the U.S. until fall 2023. —Joey Capparella

Maserati GranTurismo Folgore (Expected: Late 2023)

Maserati will add an electric powertrain to its latest GranTurismo coupe. The GranTurismo Folgore trades the forced-induction V-6 engine for a trio of electric motors capable of producing a combined 818 horsepower, getting this Maser to 60 mph in a claimed 2.7 seconds. A dog-bone-shaped battery pack cuts through the cabin and occupies parts of the "engine" bay, as well as the area aft of the rear seats. The unique shape means the Folgore's cabin space essentially mirrors that of the six-cylinder model. With a capacity of 83.0 kWh, the GranTurismo Folgore's battery will afford it an approximately 240-mile range, though that figure will likely fall precipitously with a heavy right foot. Look for the GranTurismo Folgore to arrive at dealers before the end of 2023 as a 2024 model. — Greg Fink

Mercedes-Benz EQG (Expected: Late 2023)

Mercedes-Benz is giving the EV treatment to its beloved G-wagen. The company debuted this concept at the 2021 Munich auto show. The EQG will have a motor at each wheel for four-wheel drive capability. Details on pricing, range, and horsepower haven't been revealed. Few automakers have teased an off-road EV, but when the EQG comes out, likely next year, it will compete with the GMC Hummer EV. —Austin Irwin

Mini Cooper Electric (Expected: 2025)

The iconic Mini Cooper hatchback is receiving a major overhaul for 2025, and the electric model will return with a 53.0-kWh battery that should improve upon the outgoing Cooper Electric's paltry 110-mile range. Along with a single-motor, front-wheel-drive model, Mini will offer a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive, 313-hp variant and eventually an electric John Cooper Works performance version. A prototype drive in Austria revealed that the next electric Cooper will retain the fun, spirited driving character of gas-powered Minis and will even drift through corners thanks to a trick computer system. The Cooper EV won't arrive until 2025 but we've already seen the exterior design, a sharp, modern evolution of the classic Mini look. —Caleb Miller

Mini Aceman (Expected: 2024)

Mini will bring the spunky Aceman EV from concept form to a fully-fledged production model in 2024. The new electric SUV is expected to replace the Clubman, which has seen falling sales figures in the last few years. The Aceman will fit between the Cooper hatchback and the Countryman, making it the smallest five-door model in Mini's lineup. We're hoping the Aceman makes a bit more power than the 181 horsepower available in the current Cooper Electric. That car only manages an estimated 110 miles of driving range from the 28.9-kWh battery, but the Aceman should feature a larger battery pack and more range. —Jack Fitzgerald

Mini Countryman (Expected: 2024)

The electric version of Mini's small SUV won't be the brand's first EV, but it promises to be far more usable than the small, short-range Cooper SE hatchback that's currently on sale. The Countryman EV will share underpinnings with the BMW iX1 that's not sold here and will be offered either as a 188-hp, single-motor model or a 308-hp, dual-motor SE ALL4 version. The 64.8-kWh battery pack should provide around 240 miles of range. The Countryman EV should arrive for the 2025 model year alongside a new gas-powered Countryman. —Joey Capparella

Polestar 3 (Expected: Late 2023)

The design language of the two-row Polestar 3 SUV is something like a grumpy spaceship. Expected to go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2023, the 3 uses either a 489-hp dual-motor unit good for a claimed 300 miles or a 517-hp tune for the Performance model's 270-mile range. The Polestar 3 prides itself on being the brand's first American-built car, joining Volvo's S60 and next-gen XC90 at their production plant in South Carolina in 2024. Every Polestar 3 uses a 107-kWh battery pack with DC-fast charging speeds of up to 250 kW. —Austin Irwin

Polestar 4 (Expected: Late 2024)

If the Polestar 3's proportions aren't sleek enough for you, the sloping, coupe-like roofline of the slightly smaller Polestar 4 should do the trick. The 4's dual-motor, all-wheel-drive variant outperforms the 3's Performance model with 544 hp and a claimed sprint to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds. A single-motor, rear-wheel-drive Polestar 4 produces 272 hp while targeting a range over 300 miles from its 94.0-kWh battery. The interior design is classic Swedish minimalism, and the Polestar 4 stands out from the crowd by eschewing a rear window. Prices should start around $60,000, $25K less than the 3. —Caleb Miller

Polestar 5 (Expected: 2024)

Formerly known as the Precept concept, the Polestar 5 is slated as competitor to the Tesla Model S, Porsche Taycan, and Mercedes-Benz EQS. It's a big and fancy electric luxury sedan, with pricing expected to start around $100,000. We'll be sure to add more details about the Polestar 5 to this box as it gets closer to production. —Austin Irwin

Polestar 6 (Expected: 2026)

The Polestar 6 is the type of EV that raises our heartrate. Not only will the production version feature an 884-hp all-wheel-drive powertrain, but it'll be an open-top roadster that looks as racy as it does radical. Speaking of rad, the roofless two-door is expected to employ 663 pound-feet of torque to hit 60 mph in 3.2 seconds on its way to a 155-mph top speed. The Polestar 6 is slated to arrive in 2026, starting with 500 special editions called the LA Concept. Each will be a near clone of the jaw-dropping 02 concept—minus the futuristic autonomous drone. While its interior isn't as exciting as the exterior, all of it will be wrapped around a unique bonded aluminum chassis and an 800-volt architecture that will be shared with the forthcoming Polestar 5. —Eric Stafford

Porsche Macan EV (Expected: 2024)

Porsche aims for over 80 percent of its sales to consist of EVs by 2030, and a key to that goal will be the upcoming Macan EV. The first Porsche to ride on the PPE platform, the electric version of Porsche's popular SUV will use an 800-volt architecture to help recharge the battery from five to 80 percent in under 25 minutes. It should also be mightily quick, thanks to a maximum of 603 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque, with rear- or all-wheel-drive will be available. Porsche has divulged lots of other secrets about the Macan EV ahead of its expected reveal in 2023, with deliveries due to start in 2024. —Caleb Miller

Ram 1500 REV (Expected: 2024)

Barely a month after the debut of the innovative and striking Revolution Concept, Ram revealed a significantly toned-down production version, now called the Ram 1500 REV. The production pickup sticks to the more traditional styling of the gas-powered truck, but with redesigned front and rear ends. The REV rides on a new architecture called STLA Frame, purpose-built for body-on-frame EV models, and will feature all-wheel drive thanks to motors on the front and rear axles. Ram has also confirmed that a range-extender version with a gasoline engine will be offered. Production starts next year, with more details arriving soon. —Jack Fitzgerald

Rolls-Royce Spectre (Expected: Late 2023)

A major tidal shift is coming to Rolls-Royce with the introduction of the all-electric 2024 Spectre. The ultra-luxe coupe will ascend the throne of the outgoing V-12 Wraith Coupe, and shares its platform with the Phantom sedan and Cullinan SUV. Unlike those two models, the Spectre's power comes from a fully electric powertrain consisting of two motors producing a combined 577 horsepower. The driving range is estimated to max out around 260 miles per charge, a stat we may begrudge in lesser vehicles, though we expect the Spectre clientele have a hangar full of more viable vehicles for when longer trips are required. Deliveries for the Spectre are expected to begin by the end of 2023, with a price likely somewhere north of $400,000. —Jack Fitzgerald

Scout SUV and Truck (Expected: 2026)

After lying dormant for decades, Volkswagen is reviving the Scout nameplate for a new EV brand. The first two products—an electric SUV and pickup truck—will be designed specifically for American tastes. Teaser sketches show a rugged-looking design that emulates the original Scout, a utilitarian SUV manufactured by truck and tractor maker International Harvester in the '60s and '70s. The Scout vehicles will be assembled in a dedicated factory in South Carolina, which Volkswagen is building at a cost of $2 billion and will eventually be capable of building 200,000 vehicles per year. Few other details on the vehicles are available, but the Scouts are expected to ride on an EV-specific body-on-frame platform. Production is due to kick off in 2026. —Caleb Miller

Sony-Honda Afeela Sedan (Expected: 2026)

Can you Afeela the love tonight? Sony and Honda are hooking up to form Sony Honda Mobility, which will release its first EV under the Afeela brand in 2026. The pair showed off their latest concept at CES in Las Vegas, and it's quite the handsome spaceship. Packing 45 cameras and sensors, Afeela's inaugural product promises conditional Level 3 automated driving. Don't expect too much focus on things like power or performance here; instead, Afeela is trying to make a value play to price-conscious consumers—especially ones who love dash-spanning screens loaded with streaming entertainment options. —Andrew Krok

Tesla Cybertruck (Expected: 2024)

The Tesla Cybertruck is Schrödinger's EV, stuck in a state of quantum superposition where it is seemingly both on the verge of production and extremely far away from it—and it looks like we will remain stuck in suspense for yet another year. Tesla CEO Elon Musk's latest comments to investors put the start of mass production in 2024, although a few models may sneak off the line before then. If it does arrive with even a slice of what Musk has promised in the past, its specs could be downright ridiculous. The Cybertruck will allegedly come in one-, two-, and three-motor variants, with potential features like a pass-through load floor. Tesla just needs to, you know, build the dang thing first.Andrew Krok

Tesla Roadster (Expected: Who Knows?)

If there's one thing Tesla loves, it's biting off more than it can chew. The automaker has almost as many models waiting in the wings as models it currently sells, and the Roadster is perhaps the highest pie in all the sky. When Tesla's second-generation Roadster renders first appeared in 2017, the company included some specs that remain as insane as the day they were first uttered. 60 mph could arrive in a reality-warping 1.9 seconds, and it allegedly won't run out of motive force until reaching 250 mph. If you love road trips, the Roadster will reportedly carry a 200.0-kWh battery pack that's good for some 600-plus miles of crossing your legs and praying for a reason to stop. However, considering the Cybertruck is next in line for production, and its delivery date gets pushed back about once a quarter, we don't have much hope for seeing a new Roadster in the first half of the 2020s. Andrew Krok

Toyota Tacoma EV (Expected: 2024)

A new generation of the Toyota Tacoma mid-size pickup is on its way, and all signs point to it offering both a hybrid variant and a battery-electric spinoff. Toyota showed a whole range of EV concepts in 2021, and the electric pickup concept you see has the exact right size, shape, and attitude that we're sure it previews the electric Tacoma that could arrive as soon as next year. With a four-door crew cab, a short bed, and chunky all-terrain tires, it looks to adopt the same rugged mindset as the current Tacoma TRD Pro models albeit with a completely different powertrain setup underneath. —Joey Capparella

VinFast VF8 and VF9 (Expected: 2023)

VinFast has been selling cars in its home country of Vietnam since 2019, and finally got its expansion into the United States underway this year, delivering the first 45 units of its City Edition VF8 crossovers to customers in March. The VF8 is currently only offered in California, and has a measly 207 miles of range in its most efficient configuration. A larger VF9 crossover is supposed to follow, with a 402-hp dual-motor setup and up to 369 miles of range, according to VinFast. The company plans to start building cars at a as-yet-unbuilt plant in North Carolina have been delayed to 2025. —Caleb Miller

Volkswagen ID.7 (Expected: 2024)

Despite Americans turning away from sedans, Volkswagen bucks the trend with the upcoming ID.7. The four-door EV effectively replaces the Passat and arrives with a single-motor, rear-wheel-drive configuration good for 282 hp. The 77.0-kWh battery pack—borrowed from the ID.4 crossover—should reward the ID.7 with around 300 miles of range. A bigger battery offered in other markets could come to the U.S. on a future all-wheel-drive model. The fairly standard sedan design actually hides a practical hatchback, and the cabin includes a huge 15.0-inch touchscreen and an augmented-reality head-up display. —Caleb Miller

Volkswagen ID.Buzz (Expected: Summer 2024)

The VW ID.Buzz, which harkens back to the classic Type 2 Microbus from the '50s and '60s, has already been on sale in Europe for a year, but U.S. customers will have to wait until June 2024 to get their hands on the chic electric van. The U.S.-spec ID.Buzz is longer, packing a third row of seating, and comes standard with the same 282-hp rear-drive powertrain as the ID.7. The dual-motor, all-wheel-drive version brings 330 hp. The 86.0 kWh should give the ID.Buzz around 260 miles of range, and the ID.Buzz pairs the smooth, retro exterior with a clean, airy cabin. —Caleb Miller

Volkswagen ID.Space Vizzion (Expected: 2024)

The Volkswagen I.D. Space Vizzion concept made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, where it looked very production ready. It will be VW's third U.S. EV offering, arriving before the middle of the decade. Although wagons are a perpetually tough sell in the U.S., VW touts its large interior and high aerodynamic efficiency, which help to boost the large wagon's range to a claimed 300 miles. —Dave VanderWerp

Volvo EX30 (Expected: Summer 2024)

The upcoming Volvo EX30 exemplifies the sustainable spirit of EVs in a way most can't muster. Smaller and cheaper than Volvo's other sub-compact electric SUVs, the XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge, the EX30's attractive cabin is adorned with eco-friendly upholstery options, from wool-blend fabrics to recycled denim. The EX30 comes with two powertrains: a single-motor rear-wheel-drive option with 268 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque or a dual-motor all-wheel-drive variant with a combined 422 horses and 400 pound-feet. A 64.0-kWh battery provides the juice no matter the motor configuration. Volvo says the single-motor car will be good for 275 miles, with the extra motor reducing range by 10 miles. —Jack Fitzgerald

Volvo XC60 (Expected: 2024)

The third generation of Volvo's compact crossover is set to begin production in 2024 and is expected to retain the XC60 moniker. Volvo has implied that the next XC60 will be offered only as an EV, and it will be the first car to utilize battery cells developed through a joint venture with Swedish battery maker Northvolt. This technology will emerge from a research and development center in Sweden that Volvo and Northvolt plan to have operational by 2022. The partnership will also lead to a gigafactory in Europe to produce batteries starting in 2026, although the initial battery allocation for the XC60 EV will come from an existing Northvolt plant in Sweden. The new electric XC60 will be part of Volvo's push to have EVs make up half of its sales by 2025 and transition to a fully electric lineup by 2030. —Austin Irwin

Volvo EX90 (Expected: 2024)

The EX90, Volvo's first EV designed from the ground up, provides the first look at the future of the Swedish brand. All EX90s will come with a dual-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain, with 402 horsepower in the entry-level model or 496 horsepower in the Twin Motor Performance variant. The styling is inspired by the Concept Recharge, with Volvo's distinctive "Thor's Hammer" headlights. As always, safety is a primary concern for the brand, with Volvo promising it will their safest car yet. The EX90 uses a 400-volt architecture, targeting a range of up to 300 miles. A 250.0-kWh connection allows the EX90 to charge from 10 to 80 percent in approximately 30 minutes. The electric EX90 will likely carry a price premium over the gas-powered XC90, with more details arriving before it goes on sale in 2024. —Jack Fitzgerald
