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.

future electric vehicles coming to the us
Car and Driver

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

Aspark Owl (Expected: 2021)

The Aspark Owl hypercar is the first of what the Japanese EV maker promises will be a lineup of high-dollar hypercars. The Owl produces 1984 horsepower from four electric motors, what it claims is a unique torque-vectoring system, and a 64.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that Aspark promises will deliver 280 miles of driving range. The Owl's claimed top speed is 249 mph, and it’ll cost $3.2 million. Production will be limited to 50 units worldwide, and deliveries will begin in 2021. —Connor Hoffman

Audi A6 e-tron (Expected: 2022)

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: 2021)

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. In the middle of this Audi sandwich is an all-electric compact SUV. 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 should start around $45,000. An all-wheel-drive model will also be offered with 295 horsepower and a range of up to 250 miles. Both Q4 e-tron models will support charging speeds of up to 125 kW. Audi told us they'll start selling dual-motor models first as soon as fall 2021. —Austin Irwin

BMW i4 (Expected: Late 2021)

BMW's first "i" cars, the i3 and i8, relied upon wild, futuristic designs to make a statement. The next model in the electric sub-brand has far more conventional styling, as it's intended to be similar to the 4-series Gran Coupe four-door hatchback. The i4 comes standard in rear-wheel drive with a 335-hp electric motor and an 81.5-kWh battery pack. The EPA estimates range around 300-mile mark, and BMW says it can get to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. That version starts at $56,395. An M-badged model, dubbed the M50 starts at $66,895 with all-wheel drive and an additional electric motor for a combined 536 horsepower. It should go on sale sometime in 2021. —Joey Capparella

BMW iX (Expected: 2022)

The iX is slated to go on sale by early 2022. Of course, Europe will get it before we do. It's intended as a flagship for BMW's expanded "i" family of electrified vehicles. BMW's goals for the iX sound promising: an SUV with a combined output of 516 horsepower with 300 miles of range. BMW also said that it will support DC fast charging up to 200 kW. The iX is roughly the same size as the current X5 and starts at $84,194 with standard all-wheel drive. A sportier iX M60 model is on the way, but expect its extra horsepower and chassis upgrades to add a big bump to that entry fee. —Austin Irwin

Bollinger B1 (Expected: 2022)

From a Michigan-based startup comes a pair of utilitarian-looking high-end vehicles, including this B1 SUV, each priced at $125,000 and expected to start reaching customers in 2021. They're targeted at people who are prepared to add a lot of options at extra cost to what's already a high-end SUV or truck. Both SUV and truck are claimed to offer 614 horsepower, 668 pound-feet of torque, and a 4.5-second zero-to-6o-mph time. The Bollinger B1's 120.0-kWh battery pack is said to offer up to 200 miles of range. Other specs include a 5000-pound payload capacity and 15 inches of ground clearance. —Laura Sky Brown

Bollinger B2 (Expected: 2022)

The Bollinger B2 pickup has foldable and removable body panels, Jeep Gladiator style, plus locking differentials, disconnecting sway bars front and rear, and up to 20 inches of ground clearance to seal its off-road cred. From there it gets interesting: The B2 will feature both front and rear tailgates, geared axle hubs, a hydropneumatic suspension, and the ability to carry 16-foot pieces of lumber with the tailgate closed. The B2 will cost $125,000, with Bollinger currently taking deposits for an expected 2022 on-sale date. —Laura Sky Brown

Byton M-Byte Concept (Expected: Mid-2021)

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)

The first electric Cadillac is almost here. It will be built in Spring Hill, Tennessee, alongside other future GM electric 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. Although details are still hush-hush, Cadillac says the Lyriq will likely offer a battery with about 100-kWh worth of capacity, with DC fast charging standard. 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 and that it will be available for preorder mid-2021, with production starting in 2023. —Austin Irwin

Canoo Van (Expected: Late 2021)

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 as we get closer to 2022. —Austin Irwin

Chevrolet Silverado Electric (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. Chevy told us earlier that it plans to offer its Silverado EV from work truck trim up to a fully loaded pickup. Chevy hasn't made clear when production will start, but if it wishes to deliver on its promise of 30 new EVs by 2025, we think the battery-powered Silverado will be here soon enough. —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. 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. On-sale date is TBA. —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. Slated for its big reveal at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November, Fisker says Ocean production should begin in the fourth quarter of 2022. The company says it has 17,300 paid reservations to fill, as well as orders from global fleet companies like Onto, Viggo, and Credit Agricole Consumer Finance. —Austin Irwin

Ford Explorer EV (Expected: 2023)

Last year Ford sold over 226,000 Explorers in the U.S., so giving it the fully electric treatment is an obvious move. Ford announced in May 2021 its popular 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 will be a rear- and all-wheel-drive Explorer EV. —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 Rogue Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan, and should be on sale sometime spring 2022. —Austin Irwin

Genesis Essentia (Expected: 2023)

Very much a concept, the Genesis Essentia is a slick luxury coupe that is possibly planned for production. Hyundai invested $90 million in Croatian carmaker Rimac, which specializes in battery-electric supercars, a year after this concept debuted. If it happens, it would be the first EV from Hyundai's luxury brand.
—Austin Irwin

Genesis Electrified G80 (Expected: Late 2021)

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 all-wheel drive standard. Hopefully it's on sale by late 2021, but it's possible we won't see it until the following year. Expect pricing to start above the $48,745 starting price of the gas-powered G80.
—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

GMC Hummer (Expected: 2021)

The GMC Hummer EV is expected to come as both an SUV and a pickup. It will be offered with a one-, two-, and three-motor setup, with a promised 1000 horsepower and an insane 11,500 pound-feet of torque for the three-motor. GMC announced it would have removable roof panels, four-wheel drive, and a four-wheel-steering crab walk mode. The Hummer's debut was initially delayed due to the pandemic, but GMC still plans to start deliveries of the three-motor 1000-hp First Edition model, which starts at $112,595, by the end of 2021. —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 for 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, and Acura plans to add a fully electric model to its lineup also. Honda has committed to selling only EVs by 2040. —Austin Irwin

Hyundai Ioniq 5 (Expected: Fall 2021)

Hyundai will launch a new all-electric subbrand named Ioniq, which kicks off with the mid-size Ioniq 5 crossover. It will ride on the new E-GMP platform from Hyundai and Kia, and the company has a goal of producing 23 battery-electric vehicles globally by 2025. Like many EVs, the Ioniq 5 will be available in single- or dual-motor configuration. The rear-drive single motor produces 225 horsepower, while the all-wheel-drive dual-motor version produces 320 horsepower. Expect to see them sometime this fall. —Austin Irwin

Jeep Wrangler Magneto EV (Expected: Early 2022)

Jeep is working on a battery-powered version of the iconic Wrangler off-road SUV. This Magneto Concept was revealed as part of the Easter Jeep Safari. On the surface it looks like your typical two-door Wrangler Rubicon, but on the inside the Magneto has four battery packs with a combined output of 285 horsepower. A six-speed manual is also onboard, as Jeep says the motor will regenerate power when you use the clutch to prevent rev hang and give a little back to the batteries. Don't get too excited, as this isn't the real thing yet, but expect the production model later to arrive in 2022. —Austin Irwin

Kia EV6 (Expected: 2022)

The Kia EV6 is one of 11 new electric Kias promised by 2026. The EV6 rides on the same E-GMP architecture as the Hyundai Ioniq 5, and it will offer versions ranging between 167 and 576 horsepower with a range of up to 300 miles. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions will be offered, with the choice of either a 58.0 or a 77.4-kWh battery pack. —Austin Irwin

Lagonda All-Terrain (Expected: 2023)
Aston Martin

Aston Martin has relaunched the Lagonda name as an all-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 from 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 EV SUV (Expected: 2022 or sooner)

Although Lexus is a little late to the party, the luxury brand has announced it will eventually offer an EV drivetrain called Direct 4. It showcased an SUV prototype with the technology in 2020, with front and rear electric motors that produce 201 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque each. Total output is unknown. Although the prototype vehicles testing Direct 4 are likely very pre-production test mules, we expect the real thing to be a compact crossover that's close to the Lexus NX in size. —Austin Irwin

Lincoln SUV EV (Expected: 2022)

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. The all-electric Lincoln should be roughly the size of the current Aviator, but look inherently 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 both rear- and all-wheel drive. —Austin Irwin

Lotus Evija (Expected: Late 2021)

This track-ready Lotus is nearly here. Limited to just 130 units, the Evija is a hypercar with a podium of impressive EV feats. Charging speeds of as much as 800 kW are supported, though the millionaire buying one should keep in mind even today's commercially available 350-kW chargers should be plenty quick. The Evija makes 1254 pound-feet of torque with all-wheel drive and an insane 1972 horsepower. Other track-ready goodies include a pushrod-operated rear suspension and extensive aerodynamic bits that include a diffuser with a drag-reduction system and an adjustable rear wing. The price tag should be around $2.4 million, and though it won't be exactly street legal in the U.S., for a few dollars more, exceptions can be made. —Austin Irwin

Lotus (Expected: 2022—2026)
lotus ev lineup

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

Lucid Air (Expected: 2021)
Lucid Motors

This California startup, founded in 2007 as a battery-technology company, announced it would build a Tesla-fighting electric four-door sedan in 2016, but the car's actual arrival seemed in question until recently. In 2020, though, Lucid Motors received a $1 billion investment from Saudi Arabia and in November broke ground on its future assembly plant in Casa Grande, Arizona. It has also partnered with Electrify America's network of chargers, so the promised luxury sedan looks a lot closer to reality now. Lucid promises 406 miles of range, 480 horsepower, plus over-the-air updates and autonomous-driving technology for its base model. The Air starts at $77,400. The company announced it will start production in 2021, after the factory's first stage of construction is completed. —Laura Sky Brown

Mazda MX-30 (Expected: Late 2021)

Mazda's first attempt at an electric vehicle is a quirky small SUV with RX-8–style doors, and we now know how much it will cost. Starting at $34,645, the 2022 MX-30 is slated to go on sale in California starting in October. At first, it'll be available with a 143-hp electric motor powering the front wheels and a small battery pack—we estimate a net capacity of around 32.0 kWh—that Mazda says will provide a paltry 100 miles of EPA-estimated range. —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. Expect to see more EQA news later this year. —Austin Irwin

Mercedes-Benz EQB (Expected: 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 two. 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 EQC (Expected: Maybe)

The Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4Matic, Mercedes's first electric vehicle, is a compact crossover with an estimated range of 200 miles. Mercedes-Benz announced in February that it had decided to not offer the EQC in the United States—for now. So they're saying there's a chance, right? We tested the EQC this past spring and found it hewed closely to the values Mercedes is known for: comfort, quietness, and precision in steering. It comes with two electric motors offering all-wheel drive and has a claimed 4.9-second zero-to-60-mph time. —Colin Beresford

Mercedes-Benz EQE (Expected: 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 this year. The EQE will launch as a single motor model with 288 horsepower. Later, 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 2022)
mercedesbenz concept eqg
Mercedes-BenzCar and Driver

Mercedes-Benz is giving the EV treatment to its beloved G-wagen. They 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 join the GMC Hummer EV. —Austin Irwin

Mercedes-Benz EQS (Expected: Fall 2021)

The S-class flagship sedan occupies a special place in Mercedes-Benz's lineup, and the "S" in the upcoming EQS electric vehicle's name suggests that it, too, will have a lofty mission. EQ designates this new model as part of Mercedes's electric subbrand, and spy photos suggest that it will have an odd body shape that's not quite a sedan, not quite a hatchback, not quite a crossover, but more of a mishmash of all three. A Daimler chairman says the EQS EV will have a WLTP range of over 435 miles, 329 to 516 horsepower, rear- or all-wheel drive, and should arrive later this year. —Joey Capparella

Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX (Expected: 2022)

Mercedes-Benz will use the EQXX prototype to showcase the brand's EV driving range potential. Currently, the EQS sedan is the company's longest-range model with a claimed 435 miles of range (European testing cycle) from its 107.8-kWh battery. The EQXX is claimed to push that to 620 miles using Mercedes-Benz's newest energy-dense battery technology and slippery aerodynamics. Hardware on a prototype like this is a peek at what future Mercedes-Benzes will offer. More details should be available in the next few months. —Austin Irwin

Nissan Ariya (Expected: Late 2021)

The Ariya is Nissan's second fully electric vehicle and builds on what Nissan has created with the Leaf. Nissan said 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 2021 with a starting price of around $40,000. —Colin Beresford

Pininfarina Battista (Expected: Late 2021)

The Pininfarina Battista is an 1873-hp EV coupe that uses Rimac's carbon chassis and the EV powertrain also found in the Rimac C_Two to reach a claimed 186 mph in less than 12 seconds. Its top speed is a claimed 217 mph. It's an EV hypercar that last year completed its first high-speed test at the Nardo test track in Italy with one of nine of its prototypes. Expect a price tag over $2 million, but don't expect to ever see one at your local Cars and Coffee. Deliveries are said to begin later this year. —Austin Irwin

Polestar 3 (Expected: 2023)

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. Polestar 3 production starts sometime in 2022 at Volvo's South Carolina plant. —Austin Irwin

Porsche Macan EV (Expected: 2023)

Porsche recently announced that the next generation of its Macan crossover will go full 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)
Marc UrbanoCar and Driver

Soon, Ram will be grabbing life by the plugs with a fully 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. They went further to say their 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

Rivian R1T (Expected: 2021)
Greg PajoCar and Driver

American startup Rivian has a production-ready truck, called the Rivian R1T, prepared to take the EV truck fight to the likes of Bollinger and Tesla. The R1T comes standard with all-wheel drive, the ability to tow up to 11,000 pounds, adjustable air suspension, and Level 3 autonomous-driving capabilities. The three battery packs that are available are 105.0, 135.0, and 180.0 kWh, with ranges of 230, 300, and 400 miles, respectively. Rivian claims that models equipped with the 180.0-kWh pack can hit 60 mph in a supercar-like 3.0 seconds. R1T Launch Edition models will arrive first sometime in September. Rivian says the $67,500 Explore and $73,000 Adventure trims will arrive January 2022. The EPA-estimated range for R1T Launch Edition trim with the 135.0-kWh battery is 314 miles. —Mihir Maddireddy

Rivian R1S (Expected: 2022)

The people at startup Rivian aren't just making an electric truck; they're making an electric SUV too. Built on the same platform as the R1T, the R1S shares the same battery pack options and ranges as its truck sibling. In fact, the main differences between the truck and SUV are that the SUV can only tow 7716 pounds to the truck’s 11,000, and that the SUV can seat up to seven compared to the truck's five. The R1S is set to compete against the likes of the Tesla Model X and will arrive just after the R1T in 2022, with a starting price of $72,500. The EPA-estimated range for the Rivian R1S is 316 miles. —Mihir Maddireddy

Subaru Solterra (Expected: 2022)

Not to be left out of the EV crossover craze, Subaru, with the help of Toyota, will launch the Solterra sometime in 2022. From the Latin words "sun" and "earth," the Solterra will be based on the same platform as Toyota bZ4X electric crossover. Think Forester or RAV4 in terms of size. No powertrain info has been announced, but we're confident Subaru's signature standard all-wheel drive will play a big part in this upcoming all-electric compact SUV. —Austin Irwin

Tesla Cybertruck (Expected: Early 2022)

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 be "near" later in 2021. —Laura Sky Brown

Tesla Roadster (Expected: 2022)

The Tesla Roadster's second generation has been announced for 2022. 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 Concept (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, but Toyota hasn't hinted at range or charging speed. They did tell us it will use the e-TNGA platform created through a partnership with Subaru. The platform allows for single-motor front- or rear-wheel-drive setups or dual-motor, all-wheel-drive models. We expect pricing to start around $40,000, or at least a little more than the plug-in hybrid RAV4 Prime. —Austin Irwin

VinFast VFe (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 around the upcoming VFe35 and VFe36, a compact and mid-size electric crossover. —Caleb Miller

Volkswagen ID.8

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: 2022)

VolkswagenCar 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 C40 Recharge (Expected: Early 2022)

Volvo already sells a 402-hp XC40 Recharge with 208 miles of range. The C40 Recharge is essentially the sportback version of that vehicle, and unlike the XC40, it is only offered as an EV. The C40 shares the same powertrain as the XC40 Recharge, with two electric motors and 75.0-kWh battery pack. It's also the same powertrain the Polestar 2 uses. Volvo estimates the C40 to have an EPA-rated driving range of 210 miles. Pricing will start at $59,845, or $4700 more than the XC40 Recharge. You can secure one with a $500 deposit today, but with C40 Recharge production beginning this fall, you should start seeing them on the roads as early as later 2021 or early next year. —Austin Irwin

Volvo XC60 (Expected: 2024)
volvo northvolt future ev

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 electric only, 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 next year 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 next year or sometime in 2023. Volvo confirmed the XC90's replacement will be all-electric and given a new name. —Austin Irwin
