Every Electric Vehicle That's Expected in the Next Five Years

These EVs aren't for sale yet but are in various stages from concept to production—and perhaps a few may never see the light of day.

every future ev coming to the us
Car 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 Byton, 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 ADX (Expected: 2024)
Michael SimariCar and Driver

There's some major electrification missing from Honda's current lineup and the Acura ADX will be another step toward changing that. Details are limited, but we know this all-electric SUV will be based on the upcoming Honda Prologue. Although mostly speculation, Honda did file to trademark the ADX nameplate with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in December 2021. —Austin Irwin

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 it's likely the first EV we'll see on the PPE platform that underpins future electric Audis. 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 Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron (Expected: 2022)

As you might expect from its name, the Q4 e-tron and its sharp-looking Sportback version will slot in between Audi's Q3 and Q5 crossovers in size. Like many of the Volkswagen Group's upcoming EV models, it will ride on the company's MEB platform. The Q4 e-trons fit in a segment with the Tesla Model Y and Volvo XC40 Recharge. Base models will get a 201-hp electric motor and a 77.0-kWh battery pack and start at $44,995. An all-wheel-drive model will also be offered with 295 horsepower and a range of up to 250 miles; it starts at $50,995. Both Q4 e-tron models will support charging speeds of up to 125 kW. Audi told us they'll start selling dual-motor models in 2022. —Austin Irwin

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

BMW i7 (Expected: 2023)
bmw i7 testing

The i7 will effectively be an electric version of the next-generation 7-series sedan, serving as BMW's flagship car model. It will compete with the Mercedes EQS and other large EV luxury sedans, and BMW has already previewed its overall shape with photos of a prototype model testing. It's set to make its debut in 2022 and will likely reach the U.S. market in 2023. –Joey Capparella

Buick Electra (Expected: Maybe)

General Motors recently dusted off the Electra nameplate by filing for a trademark with the United States Trademark and Patent Office. Adding an electric Electra SUV to Buick's lineup makes a lot of sense as GM launches numerous EVs such as the Chevy Silverado EV, GMC Hummer EV, and Cadillac Lyriq. Though no formal announcement has been made, the Electra name did recently appear on a Buick concept SUV. —Austin Irwin

Byton M-Byte Concept (Expected: 2022)

Byton's M-Byte and K-Byte concepts, a crossover and a sedan, were first seen at the CES technology show last January. They're the leading edge of what's expected to be a flood of electric vehicles from the Chinese startup, which has only been around since 2016. European countries will get to buy them first, but we expect the M-Byte to start at $45,000 in the U.S. The 272-hp rear-wheel-drive model has a 72.0-kWh battery, as well as two versions with a larger, 95.0-kWh pack: a 408-hp all-wheel drive version and a rear-wheel drive model. Byton says the smaller battery pack can provide up to 224 miles of range, and the larger 95-kWh battery is good for up to 286 miles. —Joey Capparella

Cadillac Lyriq (Expected: 2022)
2023 cadillac lyriq

The first electric Cadillac is almost here. It will be built in Spring Hill, Tennessee, alongside other future electric GM vehicles. The Lyriq will be sold in both single-motor rear-wheel-drive and dual-motor all-wheel-drive versions. Cadillac says it will have a range of more than 300 miles on a single charge, using GM's modular platform and Ultium scalable battery architecture. It offers a battery with about 100.0-kWh worth of capacity, with standard DC fast charging, and a starting price of $59,990. Photos of the Lyriq's giant 33.0-inch curved LED display have been shared, and Cadillac recently partnered with a digital design company that's worked on video games and movies for the display's look and feel. —Austin Irwin

Cadillac Celestiq (Expected: Sometime before 2025)

The Cadillac Celestiq, like every upcoming GM EV, will be built on the Ultium battery platform. The Celestiq will likely have a driving range of 300 miles or more. Dual-motor all-wheel drive is also available, and it will also have four-wheel steering, likely the same system as already showcased on the GMC Hummer EV. It also features a four-panel "smart glass" roof that can change its level of transparency over each passenger. This will likely be Cadillac's EV flagship, starting around $100,000. More details coming soon. —Austin Irwin

Canoo Pickup Truck (Expected: 2024)
Car and Driver

Canoo is an electric automotive startup from California, and this is its pickup. For now, it is called Pickup Truck. The Canoo pickup promises 600 horsepower and 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. —Austin Irwin

Canoo Van (Expected: Late 2022)

Like Canoo's pickup, this seven-seat EV is built on a skateboard platform, similar to what BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen use to easily swap bodystyles on similar underpinnings. Canoo is testing a subscription service that would allow consumers to use and pay for the EV only when it's needed. Canoo claims this little bus will have a range of 250 miles and 300 horsepower. Details on subscription cost or initial cost haven't been revealed yet, but expect more information later this year. —Austin Irwin

Chevrolet Blazer EV (Expected: Spring 2023)

While announcing other EV additions to its lineup during CES 2022, Chevy confirmed an all-electric Blazer on its way for 2023. This will give Chevy an electric crossover a bit larger than the Bolt EUV it offers now. Further details remain closely guarded, but a recent teaser video showed a Blazer SS badge. —Austin Irwin

Chevrolet Equinox EV (Expected: Late 2023)

Last year Chevy sold 165,232 of its Equinox crossover, beating the likes of the Ford Escape, Honda Pilot, 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. Range and battery-size details are not yet available, but we expect as much as 300 miles of range for it to be competitive based on what's already on the market. —Austin Irwin

Chevrolet Silverado EV (Expected: 2023)
Michael SimariCar and Driver

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

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 eMuscle (Expected: 2024)
Car and Driver

Dodge is building a muscle car that replaces displacement with electricity and a bunch of quiet torque. Aside from a smoky teaser clip, there's not much information about this new model. It might be an electric version of the two-door Challenger or four-door Charger, but it could also be something completely different. The Fratzog logo shown in the teaser clip was used in the 1960s and '70s on pretty much all Dodges of that era. If they're crazy enough to put 797 horsepower in a Charger and move a 6866-pound Ram 1500 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, you can bet Dodge's electric future will be an exciting one. —Austin Irwin

Deus Vayanne (Expected: TBA)
Deus Automotive

Before you go making any immature toilet jokes about if there's any giant Dues news about to drop, we'd like to remind everyone it's pronounced de-oos, not deuce. However you say it, the fully-electric Vayanne supercar from Austrian EV-stratup Deus Automobiles is sure to make a splash when it's revealed at the New York auto show in April 2022. —Austin Irwin

Faraday Future FF91 (Expected: 2023)
Faraday Future

The Faraday Future FF91 once looked like it was going to make waves, but will it ever reach production? We first saw the FF91 at CES 2017, and the startup then said the car was production-ready. Most recently a prototype was spotted testing at its production plant in Hanford, California. It boasts a claimed 1050 horsepower from two rear-mounted electric motors, plus an available front-mounted motor. Faraday Future claims the big crossover can blast from zero­ to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds. A 130.0-kWh battery pack created in partnership with LG Chem is said to provide an estimated 378-mile range. Faraday says production will begin later in 2022. —Connor Hoffman

Fisker Ocean (Expected: Late 2022)

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. Officially revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November, Fisker says Ocean production should begin in the fourth quarter of 2022. The maximum claimed mileage is 350 miles using dual-motor all-wheel drive, while the most affordable Ocean will have a claimed 250 miles of range and start at around $39,000 while eligible for the federal tax credit. —Austin Irwin

Fisker Pear (Expected: 2024)

Although there aren't many details or real imagery of the Fisker Pear that's planned to go on sale in 2024, you can reserve one for as little as $250. The Pear will start at $29,900 (without destination) and will be smaller than the Ocean. Pear, which stands for Personal Electric Automotive Revolution will be a five-passenger two-row SUV and will be built at the Lordstown Assembly plant in Ohio. More details to follow as the model gets closer to production. —Austin Irwin

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

Ford F-150 Lightning (Expected: 2022)
John RoeCar and Driver

The bestselling vehicle in the U.S. for nearly 40 years straight, the Ford F-series pickup has gone electric. Two battery packs are available, with an EPA-estimated goal of 230 miles for rear-drive trucks and 300 miles for dual-motor all-wheel-drive models. Both configurations will have 775 pound-feet of torque; that's 205 more than the PowerBoost hybrid V-6. Ford claims its 563-hp dual-motor truck can get to 60 mph in the mid-4.0 second range. We'll find out later this year when we test an F-150 Lightning if it's one of the quickest pickups we've ever tested. The F-150 Lightning will be built at Ford's new Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan, and should be on sale sometime in 2022. —Austin Irwin

Genesis Electrified G80 (Expected: 2022)

If it weren't for the plug up its nose, it might look like any Genesis G80, but it's not. The Electrified G80 is battery and electric motors only. There aren't many details available yet, but we know it's supposed have up to 310 miles of range, fast-charging capability, and standard all-wheel drive. Expect pricing to start above the $48,745 starting price of the gas-powered G80.
—Austin Irwin

Genesis GV60 (Expected: 2022)

Think of the GV60 as the luxurious version of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 found elsewhere on this list. It shares its platform and powertrain with those other EV models, but pairs those mechanicals with a posh interior and an exterior incorporating the Genesis brand's characteristic design cues. It will offer a range of powertrain configurations with between 225 and 429 horsepower, with the most powerful AWD version claiming to get to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds. It is set to go on sale in the U.S. in 2022. –Joey Capparella

Genesis Electrified GV70 (Expected: Late 2022)

The EV version of Genesis' compact GV70 crossover looks nearly identical to the gas-powered version, save for its closed-off grille, electric charging port, and lack of exhaust pipes. But underneath is a completely different powertrain that features electric motors in front and rear that produce a total of 483 horsepower. The company plans to start selling it in the U.S. soon, likely sometime in 2022, but pricing is not yet available. –Joey Capparella

GMC Sierra EV (Expected: 2023)

GMC plans to build the Sierra EV pickup alongside the Hummer EV and Chevrolet Silverado EV at Factory Zero in Michigan. Beyond that, we only have assumptions as to what the GMC truck might be. Like with gasoline versions, expect the Sierra to have distinct styling inside and out but otherwise be mechanically identical to the Silverado EV. This means it's also likely to share the Silverado EV's fixed glass roof and rear-wheel-steering setup. —Austin Irwin

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 likely to take shape as a compact or mid-size SUV. Through a partnership with General Motors on EV powertrains, this new EV will use GM's Ultium battery packs, like what's found in GMC Hummer EV and the Cadillac Lyriq. As the name implies, the Prologue is the first of many upcoming electric vehicles from the brand. Acura plans to add a fully electric model to its lineup also, possibly called ADX. Honda has committed to selling only EVs by 2040. —Austin Irwin

Honda and Chevrolet Compact SUVs (Expected: 2027)
Honda and Chevrolet

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 6 (Expected: Late 2022)
2023 hyundai ioniq 6 spied
Brian WilliamsCar and Driver

It isn't all about tall and boxy EVs at Hyundai's electric subbrand. This low-slung sedan seen here in prototype form is called the Ioniq 6 and it will be a competitor to the Tesla Model 3, among others. Its styling is inspired by Hyundai's Prophecy concept from 2020, and it's likely to offer up to 300 miles of range when it launches in late 2022 or early 2023. –Joey Capparella

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

Dozens of Hyundai and Kia EVs: (Expected: Before 2030)

Hyundai says it will launch 11 new electric models by 2030. Genesis, the company's luxury-minded brand, will gain six new models that consist of two cars and four SUVs. Kia will sell 14 EVs by 2027 with plans for two electric pickup trucks, although not all of these new EVs from Hyundai and Kia are destined to reach the U.S. market. —Caleb Miller

Jeep Wrangler EV (Expected: 2023)

Jeep currently sells a plug-in hybrid Wrangler 4xe, but the company has now teased a fully-electric version of the iconic Wrangler off-road SUV. Jeep showed a Magneto concept as part of the Easter Jeep Safari, but has since released more information. On the surface, it looks like your typical two-door Wrangler Rubicon, but inside the Magneto has four battery packs with a combined output of 285 horsepower. Jeep also teased a video of a hiking adventure that shows the Wrangler EV driving itself to the end of the trail to give its occupants a ride back. Don't get too excited, as this isn't the real thing yet, but expect the production model later to arrive in 2023, with fully autonomous features by 2030. —Austin Irwin

Jeep EV (Expected: 2023)

What is likely to be the brand's first all-electric vehicle, the Jeep EV concept appears to be roughly the size of the current Compass compact SUV. There are no details beyond this rendering from Stellantis, but knowing Jeep, this EV's trim levels will likely span from commuter to off-road camper when its announced in 2023. —Austin Irwin

Kia EV9 (Expected: 2023)

Kia is expanding its EV lineup literally and figuratively with this large three-row SUV that will sit eventually alongside the gas-powered Telluride. The EV9 concept pictured here displays a chunky, squared-off look that will likely make it to production, although some of the more fanciful design details will likely disappear. Three rows of seats will be standard and Kia says that it will offer a driving range of 300 miles. Look for more information on the production model to come before the launch that's anticipated for the 2024 model year. –Joey Capparella

Lagonda All-Terrain (Expected: 2023)
Aston Martin

Aston Martin has relaunched the Lagonda name as an electric luxury brand for the upper crust. Its wagon hull rides on the same platform as the Aston Martin DBX, which makes us wonder how close an electric DBX is to production. Aston boss Andy Palmer told us that he expects electric models to have performance similar to the brand's gasoline equivalents and that he expects more than 300 miles between visits to the plug. —Austin Irwin

Lexus RZ (Expected: 2022)

The RZ will be the first EV from Lexus, and it will offer more power than its Toyota bZ4X and Subaru Solterra partners. A Direct4 badge found on these reveal photos tells us it will use an all-wheel drive powertrain with front and rear motors that provide 200 horsepower each. Toyota hasn't spilled on a total output figure yet, but considering the bZ4X dual-motor powertrain uses two 107-hp electric motors that make just 215 horsepower total, its safe to assume the RZ will pack a bigger punch. —Austin Irwin

Five Lincoln SUVs EV (Expected: 2024 to 2030)

Lincoln has announced the brand will transition to an all-electric lineup of luxury vehicles by 2030. The first step is an SUV, likely to debut in 2022 potentially named Mark E. The all-electric Lincoln should be roughly the size of the current Aviator, but it will look quite different than the brand's gas-powered vehicles. A ride this big should offer between 300 and 400 miles of range, with the ability to accommodate either rear- or all-wheel-drive powertrains. —Austin Irwin

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-hp 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 (Expected: 2022—2026)
lotus ev lineup

The future of Lotus is an electric lineup consisting of two new SUVs, a coupe-like sedan, and a sports car. As part of what Lotus calls a Vision80 plan, the company hopes to launch all these new models by its 80th birthday party in 2028. The larger SUV should be revealed as early as 2022, followed by the sedan in 2023, with a smaller SUV coming in 2024. The unnamed sports car will follow in 2026 and will be built in the U.K. —Austin Irwin

Maserati Grecale Folgore (Expected: 2023)

The new Grecale crossover will be a key part of Maserati's expanding EV lineup. All Maserati EVs will wear the Folgore name (that means "lightning" in Italian), 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

Mercedes-Benz EQA (Expected: 2022)
Car and Driver

Mercedes-Benz's new EV lineup will be referred to as the EQ family. The Mercedes-Benz EQA, the company's smallest electric compact SUV, was revealed earlier this year in Europe-spec form. The Euro version of the EQA has 187 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque; it starts at around $57,000. Mercedes-Benz suggested an EQA in the U.S. could have all-wheel drive with around 280 horsepower. Ours would likely have a range of 250 miles. Although Mercedes hasn't said for sure if the EQA will make it stateside, but expect to see more EQA news soon. —Austin Irwin

Mercedes-Benz EQB (Expected: Late 2022)

The Mercedes-Benz EQB is nearly ready for its big debut. It's based on the GLB-class SUV and will have at least 221 horsepower with between 200 and 250 miles of range. There's also an available third row, but the EQB's size is better suited for five passengers. Hopefully an all-wheel-drive powertrain will be available here in the U.S. We'll update this space as information is available. —Austin Irwin

Mercedes-Benz EQE (Expected: Late 2022)
2023 mercedesbenz eqe

Somewhere between Tesla Model 3 and Model S in size, the Mercedes-Benz EQE sedan was revealed at the Munich auto show in 2021. The EQE will launch as a single-motor model with 288 horsepower. An all-wheel-drive version with two motors and over 400 horsepower will follow. Mercedes claims a driving range of 410 miles on the optimistic European WLTP test cycle, but expect EPA-estimated range to by somewhat lower than that.—Austin Irwin

Mercedes-Benz EQG (Expected: Late 2023)
mercedesbenz concept eqg
Mercedes-BenzCar and Driver

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

Nissan Ariya (Expected: Fall 2022)

The Ariya is Nissan's latest electric vehicle and builds on what the company has created with the Leaf. Nissan says the most powerful version of this electric crossover has 389 horsepower, while the longest-range model promises to go 300 miles on a charge. It'll feature Nissan's new semi-autonomous driving system, ProPilot 2.0, and a dual front-/rear-motor drive configuration. The Ariya will arrive in Japan first, but the U.S. will see it sometime later in 2022 with a starting price of $47,125. —Colin Beresford

Polestar 3 (Expected: 2022)

Polestar is calling the next entry into its lineup the Polestar 3. The company has described it as an "aerodynamic performance electric SUV," which sounds like it could be similarly styled to the BMW X4 or Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe. Muany of the details are still classified, but we were able to confirm that the Polestar 3 will offer single- and dual-motor configurations. Polestar 3 production starts sometime in 2022 at Volvo's South Carolina plant. —Austin Irwin

Polestar 4 (Expected: 2023)

The Polestar 4 is literally still under wraps, but the company did hint that its mysterious upcoming model would be a coupe-like crossover, similar to the Porsche Macan. No details yet, but we expect the Polestar 4 to carry a starting price in the mid-$50,000 range. —Austin Irwin

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

Porsche Macan EV (Expected: 2023)

Porsche recently announced that the next generation of its Macan crossover will go electric. The Porsche Macan EV will be based on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE) platform that is being co-developed with Audi. It will have the same 800-volt tech as the next Taycan and will probably share its electric motors and battery packs too. Porsche plans to start production of the Macan EV in 2022. —Connor Hoffman

Ram 1500 EV (Expected: 2024)

Soon, Ram will be grabbing life by the cord with an electric pickup. In an announcement during parent-company Stellantis's EV Day, Ram said it would produce a 1500 EV in 2024 with a body-on-frame platform and 500 miles of range. The company went even further to say its heavy-duty trucks, city vans, and cargo vans would also offer fully electric models by 2030. Details are still pretty far off, but Ram did tell us the Ram 1500 EV would accept fast-charging rates of up to 150 kWh. —Austin Irwin

Sony Vision-S 02 Concept EV (Expected: Late 2022)

From the same folks that brought you the Walkman music player and PlayStation gaming console, the Sony Vision-S 02 concept is a look at the company's future Sony Mobility Inc. EV endeavor. Sony claims the concept has 536 horsepower and dual motors, but didn't give details on range or how much its electric SUV would cost. This seven-passenger prototype will likely compete with the Tesla Model Y if it can match the Tesla's top 330-mile range. —Austin Irwin

Tesla Cybertruck (Expected: 2023)

To say that the design of the Tesla Cybertruck is polarizing is a massive understatement, and the Cybertruck itself is massive—a hunk made of stainless steel and hubris that we estimate could weigh upward of 9000 pounds in its production version. CEO Elon Musk has claimed as many as 200,000 would-be buyers put down deposits in less than a week after the Cybertruck's unveiling on November 21, 2019. Its dimensions, similar to those for the market-dominating Ford F-150, and its stainless-steel unibody make it an intriguing potential addition to the coming glut of EV pickup trucks. The first, lowest-range version (250-plus miles) is claimed to be priced starting under $40,000, with a production time that will eventually happen in 2023. —Laura Sky Brown

Tesla Roadster (Expected: 2023)

The Tesla Roadster's second generation has been announced for 2023. It has a claimed zero-to-60-mph time of 1.9 seconds, an 8.8-second quarter-mile time, and a top speed of 250 mph. The Roadster will likely have an all-wheel-drive system with a pair of (or maybe even three) electric motors that, along with a 200.0-kWh battery pack, can give this two-door a range of up to 620 miles. We expect the starting price to be around $200,000, a worthy price if the Roadster can live up to the performance claims. —Mihir Maddireddy

Toyota bZ4X (Expected: 2022)

Toyota promised a plethora of new electric vehicles sometime before 2025, seven of which will use the bZ model name. The bZ4X name rolls off the tongue like a Wi-Fi password, but it's a peek into what Toyota's electric future will look like. It's pretty much the RAV4 EV in terms of size and will offer up to 250 miles of range in its front-wheel-drive form. The bZ4X uses the e-TNGA platform created through a partnership with Subaru and is similar to the Subaru Solterra seen elsewhere on this list. The platform allows for single-motor front-wheel-drive or dual-motor, all-wheel-drive models. We expect pricing to start under $40,000. —Austin Irwin

VinFast VF8 and VF9 (Expected: 2023)

VinFast sold around 30,000 vehicles in Vietnam last year. The company has yet to make a profit but is quickly growing in Vietnam, becoming the fourth most popular car brand there this year, with an 8.3 percent share of the market. Now the fledgling company has announced plans to expand into North America and Europe, with the goal of starting sales in the United States in March 2022. The automaker's global lineup will be centered around electric crossovers. The Vietnamese brand's entry to the U.S. market will be based on the upcoming VF8 and VF9, a compact and mid-size electric crossovers. —Caleb Miller

Volkswagen ID.8 (Expected: Maybe)

No real timeline for the Volkswagen ID.8 has been revealed yet, but VW boss Herbert Diess confirmed that the brand plans to introduce a fully electric SUV that's bigger than the already available ID.4. Diess didn't exactly say it would be available in North America, but the continued demand for larger SUVs in the U.S. makes it an obvious move. It should be roughly the same size as the three-row Atlas (pictured here) and offer more range than the smaller ID.4 SUV, which has 250 miles of range and 201 horsepower. —Austin Irwin

Volkswagen ID.Buzz (Expected: 2024)
James LipmanCar and Driver

VW's second EV, launching in 2023, will be a modern take on its first-generation Type 2 Microbus from the 1950s and 1960s. As with its revival of the Beetle in the late 1990s, VW hopes the new Microbus, or whatever its name is for production, tugs at the heartstrings of boomers everywhere. As with its other coming EVs, the Buzz will use the same MEB-platform component set, with a battery pack integrated into the floor, and will likely have room for six to eight people. The ID.Buzz above was spotted testing autonomous driving tech for Argo AI, a U.S.-based engineering firm with ties to Ford.—Dave VanderWerp

Volkswagen ID.Space Vizzion (Expected: 2022)

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, coming in 2022. 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 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 XC90 (Expected: Late 2022)

The Volvo Concept Recharge (pictured here) is a glimpse of what the next XC90 that's due to arrive soon will look like. Some iteration of what's shown on the concept will likely reach every future Volvo. We suspect the next three-row SUV from Volvo will arrive either late in 2022 or sometime in 2023. Volvo confirmed the XC90's replacement will be all-electric and that it will use a new name. —Austin Irwin
