Hot, New Electric Cars That Are Coming Soon

Automakers are offering new models in all shapes and sizes

The ongoing business impact of the coronavirus pandemic has slowed auto development and production, but manufacturers’ plans to introduce electric vehicles (EVs) continue unabated. In fact, dozens of pure electric models are set to debut by the end of 2024.

On the menu are cars and an increasing number of SUVs and pickups. And there will be a broader array of plug-in hybrid models, which can run on mostly electric power for a stretch before a gasoline engine kicks in and operates the vehicle more like a traditional hybrid.

The rollout of new EV and plug-in hybrid models across different segments is good news for consumers looking for an alternative-fuel vehicle that will fit their needs.

Below is a rundown of some of the models that are worth watching for in the next couple of years. The list is alphabetical by automaker. Prices are estimates in most cases.

Safety term glossary: AEB = automatic emergency braking; BSW = blind spot warning; LDW = lane departure warning; LKA = lane keeping assistance; RCTW = rear cross traffic warning.

With the introduction of the ZDX, Acura has a modern electric vehicle that looks poised to go up against its established competitors. Like the Honda Prologue, the ZDX is being co-developed with General Motors, sharing much of its platform with the Cadillac Lyriq. The ZDX A-Spec version is available with single or dual electric motors that produce an estimated 340 hp. The RWD version has an estimated range of 325 miles, while the AWD version is expected to go 315 miles on a charge. The performance-oriented Type S has dual electric motors making 500 hp and a range of about 288 miles. All versions use a 102-kWh battery. The cabin features an 11-inch digital instrument panel and an 11.3-inch infotainment touchscreen. Many of the interior controls, including the steering wheel, turn signal stalk, and wiper stalk are sourced from GM.

Based on the GM Ultium platform shared with the Hummer EV, the Sierra EV will launch as an innovative, premium six-figure pickup truck. Over time, GMC will introduce lower trims at more attainable prices, descending to a $50,000 base price. The Denali Edition 1 boasts 754 hp. GMC says the crew cab truck can launch from 0 to 60 mph in under 4.5 seconds and achieve an estimated 400-mile range. The unified bed and body allows a midgate to open up into the cab, extending enclosed cargo space from a 5-foot, 11-inch bed to 9 feet. Other clever features include crab walk, allowing the truck to move diagonally at low speeds, and all-wheel steering, enabling a tight turning circle. The Denali Edition 1 and the off-road focused AT4 come with a towing-compatible version of the Super Cruise hands-free driver assistance technology.
