Best new electric cars coming in 2024 and beyond

There are so many exciting EVs on the horizon; we've picked out some of the best

Polestars under cover

Electric cars have never been more popular, with more than 280,000 of them sold in the UK in 2023. In fact, as of January 2024, EVs now account for more than 20% of new car sales, with the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders claiming one EV is sold in Britain every 60 seconds.

Thus, as we slowly approach the recently-extended 2035 ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars, manufacturers are developing and launching waves of new electric cars of all varieties, from city cars and hatchbacks to seven-seat SUVs and luxurious limousines, as established automotive brands go head-to-head with recently founded startups.

Here, we take a look at some of the hottest and most interesting new electric cars hitting the street in 2024 and beyond…

AEHRA electric SUV

AEHRA electric SUV

If you didn’t think there were enough posh electric SUVs on sale yet, AEHRA is a new Italian manufacturer that’s aiming to “rewrite the automotive design rulebook” with its upcoming plug-in 4x4. Expected to be priced well over £150,000, the AEHRA SUV is set to hit the market in 2025 boasting a striking curved design, gull-wing doors (like the Tesla Model X) and a range of up to 497 miles.

Afeela prototype

Afeela electric saloon

No, Afeela isn’t the name of the next epidemic disease, it’s a new electric-only brand formed by Honda and tech giant Sony. Set to go on sale in 2026, a concept of the yet-to-be-named saloon was showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The Afeela wowed the crowds with its panoramic infotainment screen that spans the entire dashboard, as well as its futuristic styling and dual-motor powertrain.

Alfa Romeo Milano - front

Alfa Romeo Milano

It’s fair to say that in 2024, Alfa Romeo is pretty late to the EV party, having yet to launch a single electric model. We won’t be waiting much longer for one, though, as Alfa has confirmed its first electric model is coming soon in the form of a zero-emissions SUV called the Milano. Set to share parts with the Jeep Avenger and Vauxhall Mokka Electric, the plug-in Italian crossover will be offered with a dual-motor powertrain at launch. Bosses at Alfa Romeo have promised similar sporty driving characteristics to the larger hybrid-powered Tonale, while a range of around 250 miles seems likely.

Alpine EV line-up

Alpine GT X-Over

Alpine, the performance-car offshoot of Renault, has announced plans to launch a total of five EVs by 2028, including three electric SUVs. The first is its answer to the Ford Mustang Mach-E, BMW iX1 and Kia EV6 called the Alpine GT X-Over, which is set to enter production in 2025. It will sit on the same 'CMF-EV' platform as the Nissan Ariya, but the GT X-Over is expected to use a new triple-motor setup, for four-wheel drive and a power output in the 400-500bhp range. Find out more about the Alpine GT X-Over here.

Alpine A290 Beta concept car

Alpine A290

Alpine’s EV line-up won’t consist entirely of SUVs, however. Its first electric car will be a hot hatch based on the forthcoming Renault 5 (profiled further down). The Alpine R5 is due to hit the road in 2024, will be front-wheel drive only and use a single electric motor that’s expected to produce 215bhp. Other than that, technical details remain firmly under wraps, and styling-wise, the single teaser image Alpine has released of the R5 so far only indicates it’ll get a sizeable rear wing.

Audi A6 Avant e-tron electric estate car concept

Audi A6 e-tron

The Audi A6 e-tron electric saloon will join the German brand’s e-tron-badged range of electric cars in 2024, followed just a year later by an estate version. The production versions of the A6 e-tron and A6 Avant e-tron (above) concepts will use the new 'Premium Platform Electric' (PPE) Audi co-developed with Porsche. Audi says the A6 e-tron models will boast a range of up to 435 miles, with the most potent variants capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in less than four seconds thanks to dual-motor setups for quattro all-wheel-drive.

Audi Q6 e-tron

Audi Q6 e-tron

The Q6 e-tron SUV will be the next addition to Audi’s zero-emissions line-up, expected to arrive in showrooms in mid-to-late 2024. The Q6 e-tron and its sister model the electric Porsche Macan will be the first production EVs to sit on the new 'PPE' (Premium Platform Electric), with the Audi introducing the maker’s latest generation of car interior, complete with three individual screens and a plethora of recycled materials. A range of around 300 miles can be expected, as well as a 500bhp power output – possibly boosted further in an 'RS' performance model.

BMW X3 render - front

BMW X3

BMW’s Neue Klasse platform will underpin its next generation of EVs and the first to get this new technology will be an all-new version of the X3 SUV. Our exclusive images show what the new car might look like, with heavy influence from the BMW Vision Neue Klasse concept. We reckon it could boast a range of over 350 miles, while 800v architecture should allow for rapid charging at speeds of up to 270kW. Not a fan of SUVs? We expect the X3 to be followed by a new all-electric version of the 3 Series saloon, too.

Find out more about the BMW X3 here.

Corvette E-Ray

Chevrolet Corvette EV

The first “electrified” version of the Chevrolet Corvette sports car was unveiled in January 2023. Called the Corvette E-Ray (above), it pairs a 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8 with an electric motor on the front axle for four-wheel drive, 646bhp on tap and a 0-60mph time of just 2.5 seconds. However, it’ll be joined in time by a fully electric model wearing the iconic nameplate – likely to the dismay of petrol-drinking Americans. The zero-emissions Corvette will use the same Ultium battery technology and platform as electric versions of the Chevrolet Silverado pickup, as well as the Hummer EV and Cadillac Lyriq.

Cupra Tavascan

The Cupra Tavascan has been unveiled as a sportier, Spanish take on the Volkswagen ID.5 and Skoda Enyaq Coupe. It uses the same MEB running gear as those cars, with the choice of a single or dual-motor powertrain. Particular highlights include illuminated Cupra badging, figure-hugging sports seats and a rather striking design. A 77kWh battery provides a range of up to 341 miles, while top models can reach 62mph in as little as 5.6 seconds.

Find out more about the Cupra Tavascan here.

Cupra Raval front static

Cupra Raval

Cupra, Skoda and Volkswagen are all launching affordable electric cars in 2025, based on the same mechanical platform. But, Cupra has been the first to provide us with a clear look yet at its entry-level EV: the Raval. The compact four-door EV concept you see here is about 95% representative of the car that’ll arrive in showrooms in a couple of years. Cupra CEO Wayne Griffiths previously hinted that the entry-level EV would cost just over €20,000 (around £17,600 at today’s exchange rate), despite offering a range of up to 273 miles.

Dacia Spring - front

Dacia Spring

Move aside BYD Dolphin, the Dacia Spring is on its way to become Britain’s cheapest electric car. Already on sale in Europe, the Spring is likely to cost from under £20,000 when it arrives on this side of the channel. It may feel pretty cheap inside – watch our video review for evidence of that – but an electric range of up to 143 miles should make the electric Dacia ideal for city-based buyers looking for a cheap commuter vehicle. UK specs will differ from the current EU specifications, though, with Dacia promising “significant improvements in design and equipment” – hopefully including making DC rapid charging a standard feature.

Fisker PEAR - top

Fisker Pear

Fisker’s second EV is an affordable electric city car called the Pear – an acronym for 'Personal Electric Automotive Revolution'. The Pear will be available with single and dual-motor setups for a choice of rear or all-wheel drive, plus two battery options, with the larger Hyper Range pack quoted to have a range of up to 348 miles. The Pear measures 4.5 metres end-to-end – about the same as a Kia Sportage – and according to CEO Henrik Fisker, it could start from close to £25,000 when it lands in the UK.

Fisker Ronin

Fisker Ronin

In addition to its pair of electric SUVs, Fisker has revealed it’s working on a four-seater convertible GT car with a range of approximately 600 miles. CEO and founder Henrik Fisker shared the news on social media, adding that the Ronin will be capable of 0-60mph in close to two seconds, thanks to its three electric motors. Development of the Tesla Roadster and Maserati GranCabrio Folgore rival is already underway, with prices expected to start from under $200,000 (just under £160,00 at the time of writing) when it goes into production in 2024.

Ford Capri spy shot

Ford Capri

Likely to arrive to shouts of “heresy” by Britain’s retro car clubs, the Ford Capri is set to be reborn as… yes, you guessed it, an electric SUV. Early spy photographs showcase how Ford’s latest electric venture will feature a rakish, coupe-like silhouette in tribute to the Capri nameplate. Underneath, it’ll share parts with the new Ford Explorer, as well as the Volkswagen ID.5 and Skoda Enyaq Coupe. We expect the full reveal to take place towards the end of 2024, with the Capri going on sale in early 2025 for slightly more money than the boxier Explorer.

2023 Ford Explorer - front 1

Ford Explorer

After a long history in the US and a brief stint in the UK during the early 2000s, the Ford Explorer nameplate is back, worn by a medium-sized electric SUV, based on the Volkswagen ID.4. Despite sharing its basic platform and battery technology with the VW, which allows for a range of up to 335 miles, the Ford has its own character, with a brutish, distinctly American design and sliding centre touchscreen. Delayed in order to meet new EU safety regulations, the Explorer will go on sale in summer 2024, with prices expected to start from just over £40,000.

Future Ford EVs

Ford Puma EV

Ford has confirmed an electric version of its hugely popular Puma compact SUV will arrive in 2024, after the Explorer family SUV (above) and a "sports crossover". We know the Puma EV will roll off the same Romanian production line as the existing petrol-powered model, but technical details have yet to be revealed. It won't use the same platform as Volkswagen's ID. electric models though, which will serve as the underpinnings for the other two electric SUVs Ford has in the works.

Jeep Recon 4x4

Jeep Recon 4x4

The Jeep Recon 4x4 looks to be a zero-emissions alternative to the brand’s iconic Wrangler, and will be offered exclusively with electric power when it comes to the UK in 2025. The electric off-roader has been designed to go off the beaten track, coming equipped with Jeep’s Selec-Terrain traction management system, under-body protection, tow hooks and aggressive off-road tires. It’ll also come with all-wheel drive and use the brand-new STLA Large platform that it’ll share with the electric version of the Jeep Wagoneer coming soon (profiled below).

Find out more about the Jeep Recon 4x4 here.

Jeep Wagoneer S

Jeep Wagoneer EV

The final Jeep EV confirmed so far is an electric version of the brand’s flagship Wagoneer SUV that’s due to arrive in 2024. Currently code-named the Wagoneer S, Jeep says it’s targeting a range of 400 miles on a single charge for this large electric range-topper. It will also be capable of 0-60mph in around 3.5 seconds and produce over 590bhp. Like the Recon 4x4, it’ll use the new EV-dedicated STLA Lage platform and be built in North America.

Kia EV5 reveal

Kia EV5

A more family-oriented alternative to the sleeker and sportier EV6 – which is due to be facelifted soon – the Kia EV5 was originally revealed for the Chinese market, however it’s been confirmed to be coming to Europe soon. Featuring the tri-screen infotainment system from the larger EV9, the EV5 has been designed specifically with millennial buyers in mind and is furnished head-to-toe in sustainable materials. Sharing parts with the EV6, Kia says the EV5 has a range of over 400 miles according to Chinese efficiency standards – strict European tests mean the electric family SUV will likely have an official range of around 350 miles when it eventually goes on sale here in the UK.

Find out more about the Kia EV5 here.

Lamborghini Lanzador - front

Lamborghini Lanzador

It’s official: Lamborghini is making an EV. No, the Italian marque hasn’t found a way to make a howling V12 run on electricity, but from what we can see from the concept, we don’t expect the Lanzador to be at all lacking in drama. Lambo’s first EV will be a lifted fastback, similar to the Polestar 2, although it’ll instead be going head-to-head with the larger Polestar 5, as well as the Porsche Taycan and Lotus Emeya. No technical details have been released as of yet, but that doesn’t mean we’re any less excited for when the Lanzador makes landfall, likely around 2028.

Lotus Emeya - header

Lotus Emeya

The Lotus Emeya is Britain’s answer to the Porsche Taycan, Tesla Model S and Lucid Air. Dubbed by Lotus as its first “electric hyper GT”, the Emeya lives up to its billing with its 893bhp powertrain and 0-62mph time of under 2.8 seconds. Active aerodynamics – including a deployable rear spoiler – provide up to 215kg of downforce and should make the Emeya as fast to drive on a twisty road as it is in a straight line. Yet, despite its insane performance and tech-filled interior, the Emeya is still capable of well over 300 miles on a charge. It’ll go on sale later in 2024, although it’s unlikely Lotus’ new electric flagship will cost anything less than £100,000.

Find out more about the Lotus Emeya here.

Lucid Air Sapphire

Lucid Air

Frequently dubbed the ‘Tesla Model S killer’, the Lucid Air is another fast and luxurious electric saloon from another American start-up. With entry-level Lucid Air Pure models starting from $87,400 in the US (just over £70,000 at the current exchange rate), the electric saloon has a maximum range of almost 550 miles, making it the longest-range electric car to ever go on sale. On the inside, the Lucid is wrapped in luxurious sustainable materials and features a wraparound instrument cluster and two large centre screens. A right-hand drive model has been confirmed and it’s already on-sale in Germany, but it remains to be seen when the Lucid Air will arrive in the UK.

Lucid Gravity - front

Lucid Gravity

Lucid's next EV is a luxury seven-seater electric SUV called the Gravity. The EV startup’s rival to the Tesla Model X and Mercedes EQS SUV sits on the same LEAP (Lucid Electric Advanced Platform) platform as the Air and gets a huge 120kWh battery pack for a maximum range of up to 440 miles. Other key features include the huge 34-inch screen that cocoons the driver, as well as a plethora of wellbeing modes designed in conjunction with mental health charity, Meditopia. It remains to be seen whether the Gravity will make it to the UK in right-hand drive form, although its set to go on sale in the U.S. in 2024 from $80,000.

Maserati Grecale Folgore

Maserati Grecale Folgore

The Maserati Grecale Folgore is Italy’s answer to the electric Porsche Macan and BMW iX3. The premium electric SUV will arrive in showrooms in 2023, produce around 540bhp and 800Nm of torque, and feature a 105kWh battery, meaning it could cover close to 400 miles on a charge. You can already get a Folgore-badged version of the Gran Turismo sports car, but by 2025, Maserati’s EV line-up will also include a zero-emissions version of its recently released MC20 supercar, as well as the next iterations of the Levante SUV and Quattroporte saloon, which will both be EV-only.

Concept CLA Class

Mercedes CLA

Mercedes is readying to reposition itself further upmarket and it intends to do so with this: the next-generation Mercedes CLA. This will, in turn, become Merc’s new entry-level model and will go toe-to-toe with the likes of the BMW i4, Polestar 2 and Tesla Model 3. Of particular note are its three-pointed star headlights, screen-filled dashboard and great deal of battery technology taken straight from the 1000-kilometre EQXX concept. With a projected range of up to 446 miles thanks to Merc’s MMA platform, the new CLA is set to arrive in production form in the next couple of years, starting from around £50,000.

Find out more about the electric Mercedes CLA here.

Mercedes EQG prototype

Mercedes EQG

The Mercedes G-Class is not the first car you’d think might be in-line for the EV treatment, but in 2024 a fully electric version of the legendary 4x4 will go into production. It’ll be called the Mercedes EQG, and will use a modified version of the current G-Class’ platform. The EQG’s four individual motors will allow for what Mercedes has called a ‘G-Turn’; this involves the wheels either side spinning in opposite directions, enabling the EQG to rotate like a tank.

MG Cyberster

MG has a storied history of making great sports cars, but recently the now-Chinese-owned marque has focused on making value-focused family cars. That is, until now, as we’ve already had a drive in the hotly-awaited MG Cyberster, which is expected to go on sale in 2024. Featuring scissor doors, a convertible roof and a yoke-style steering wheel, the Cyberster certainly stands out against other MGs of late – and will be offered with as much as 536bhp.

Find out more about the MG Cyberster here.

MINI Concept Aceman

MINI Aceman

MINI is preparing to launch an all-new, five-door electric crossover in 2024, previewed by the Concept Aceman. The production Aceman will use the brand-new platform from the new MINI Cooper Electric, which has been designed exclusively for EVs and should help maximise cabin and luggage space in the compact crossover. Although, range and performance figures for the Aceman are still under wraps, we expect it’ll be able to cover at least 250 miles on a charge.

MINI Cooper Electric - header

MINI Cooper Electric

The new MINI Cooper has arrived as the replacement for the old MINI Electric and looks to be an improvement in almost every way. Two models will be available at launch: a standard car with a starting price of around £30,000 and a range of almost 200 miles, plus the top-of-the-range MINI Cooper SE with 218bhp and a range of 250 miles. Featuring a revolutionary new interior with futuristic and playful customisation options, the new MINI Cooper Electric will be built in Britain from 2026 and is already on sale, with first deliveries expected in the first half of 2024.

MINI Countryman Electric

The new third-generation MINI Countryman uses the same underpinnings as the latest BMW X1 and fully electric iX1, and is being offered with a similar choice of petrol or electric power. It gets the smaller Cooper Electric’s snazzy minimalist interior and circular touchscreen, but also boasts its own ‘Experience Mode’, dubbed ‘Trail’. Boasting a range of up to 287 miles and a choice of two electric motor setups, the plug-in Countryman is now available to pre-order from around £40,000.

Peugeot e-3008 - front

Peugeot E-3008

The Peugeot E-3008 is the French maker’s first bespoke EV and introduces the latest version of its futuristic i-Cockpit interior. Adopting a sleek coupe-SUV silhouette, the electric 3008 acts as a replacement for the old petrol model and gets a curved triple-screen infotainment setup and will be available with three distinct battery and electric motor configurations. Perhaps most impressive is the ‘230 Long Range’ model which can, according to Peugeot, travel up to 435 miles on a single charge – 100 miles more than a Tesla Model Y. It’s only the entry-level ‘210’ variant that’s going on sale for now, though, with a starting price of £46,000 and a range of up to 326 miles. A faster dual-motor version is also expected to arrive soon.

New Peugeot 408

Peugeot E-408

Peugeot has also confirmed that it will be launching an electric version of its new 408 fastback saloon in 2023, which we expect to be called the E-408. Given that the 308 and 408 share the same platform, it’s reasonable to assume Peugeot’s future Polestar 2 and Hyundai Ioniq 6 rival will utilise the same 156bhp motor and 54kWh battery combination as the E-308 family hatchback and estate we already mentioned.

Polestar 3

Polestar 3

The Polestar 3 is the Swedish brand's first electric SUV and rival to the BMW iX. Two versions are available at launch, both featuring a dual-motor powertrain and 111kWh battery that's good for a range of up to 379 miles, according to Polestar. Inside, the 3 gets an array of sustainable materials and driver assistance systems, plus a new 14.5-inch touchscreen. Prices start from just over £80,000 and while order books are now open, first deliveries aren’t expected until summer 2024.

Find out more about the Polestar 3 here.

2023 Polestar 4 - front gold

Polestar 4

If you couldn’t tell by the name, the all-new Polestar 4 is the Swedish brand’s aptly named fourth model that was revealed in early 2023. It’s an electric coupe-SUV that rides slightly higher than the more saloon-like Polestar 2 and, confusingly, is slightly smaller than the Polestar 3 SUV. Perhaps the Polestar 4’s most peculiar trait is its lack of a rear window, with cameras being used instead. Set to be offered with both single and dual-motor powertrains, we expect the Polestar 4 to start from around £50,000 when it eventually goes on sale.

Polestar 5

After the Polestar 3 and Polestar 4, the electric-only brand has launch its pièce de résistance: a 872bhp four-door luxury GT flagship. The Polestar 5 will go on sale in 2025 as a rival to cars like the Mercedes EQSLucid Air and Tesla Model S. Polestar is yet to reveal exact specifications, but we do know the sleek-looking saloon has been developed in the UK and will feature a dual-motor powertrain, plus a 800-volt electrical system like the Porsche Taycan.

Find out more about the Polestar 5 here.

Polestar O2

Polestar 6

Polestar has confirmed it will be putting its drop-top O2 concept into production as the Polestar 6. The Swedish brand’s “vision of a new era for sports cars” will be a direct rival to the upcoming second-generation Tesla Roadster, with its design language and platform taken from the Polestar 5. It'll use the luxury saloon's 872bhhp dual-motor powertrain, with the Polestar 6 is targeting a 0-62mph time of just 3.2 seconds and a 155mph top speed. However, it's unlikely to go into production until 2026.

Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman

The next-generation Porsche 718 Cayman coupe and 718 Boxster convertible will ditch their combustion engines in favour of a zero-emissions powertrain, with the soon-to-be-electric-only sports cars set to arrive by 2025. Porsche’s top boss Oliver Blume has also revealed the pair will use a bespoke platform and their design will be influenced by the brand’s Mission R electric race-car concept from 2021.

Porsche Macan EV

The new Porsche Macan is set to arrive in 2024, and will for the first time, be offered with a pure-electric powertrain. The Macan EV will use the new PPE platform that’ll underpin the Audi Q6 e-tron SUV we mentioned earlier and will be capable of faster charging speeds than the Porsche Taycan’s 270kW thanks to an 800-volt electrical system. We have also learned that the electric Macan will feature two electric motors – one on each axle – for a total power output of more than 600bhp and over 1,000Nm of torque.

New Range Rover PHEV

Range Rover Electric

The latest version of the Range Rover is already available with plug-in hybrid power, and on a full battery can cover up to 70 miles without consuming a drop of petrol. But, in 2024, a fully electric version of the luxury SUV will be unveiled to the world. Sadly, few technical details have surfaced so far, but we do know that the Range Rover Electric will get 800v electrical architecture for ultra-rapid charging speeds, as well as performance to match that of the current V8-powered flagship.

Renault 4EVER Trophy

Renault 4

Following the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the electric Renault 5 prototype (profiled below), the French brand is dipping into its back catalogue once again. In 2025 the iconic Renault 4 name will be reborn as a family-oriented compact electric SUV that'll rival the Smart #1 and Hyundai Kona Electric, among others. It'll be based on the same underpinnings as the new R5 and we expect it'll come with the same 134bhp electric motor, and 40kWh and 52kWh batteries, too. The Renault 4EVER Trophy concept (above) also indicates its design will pay homage to the original, with a particularly boxy design, relatively long bonnet and rounded front end.

Renault 5 Prototype at Goodwood

Renault 5 E-Tech

The reborn Renault 5 caused quite the stir online when it was unveiled in early 2021, so it came as no surprise when the reinvented and fully electric version of Renault's iconic hatchback was given the green light shortly after. It will sit on a brand-new platform and be offered with a choice of 40kWh and 52kWh batteries, the larger of which should offer around 250 miles of range. The electric Renault 5 is to be revealed in February 2024 and is expected to start from around €25,000 when it goes on sale in Europe.

Suzuki eVX - front

Suzuki eVX

Suzuki has declared it’ll launch its first electric car in Europe in 2024 and it’s going to be this: the boxy-looking eVX. Previewed in concept car form, the Suzuki eVX will get plenty of body cladding to give it a tough appearance, while the show car previews a new dual-screen infotainment system. It’s expected to share parts with the forthcoming Toyota bZ3X, a smaller sibling to the bZ4X, and Suzuki says a 60kWh battery pack provides a range of up to 310 miles. Being a Suzuki, we expect the eVX to undercut much of the competition on price, potentially starting from under £34,000 when it eventually makes it to market.

Tesla Model 2 teaser

Tesla Model 2

The Tesla lineup will soon receive a big shakeup, with a facelifted version of the Model 3 having just been revealed with more range and a revised look. However, even more exciting is the impending arrival of the Model 2 hatchback, which is rumoured to start from just £25,000. Acting as a direct rival to the MG4, Tesla’s next model isn’t expected to arrive before 2025, but it’s certainly got people talking about Elon Musk’s EV brand again.

Find out more about the Tesla Model 2 here.

Tesla Model Y

Tesla Model Y facelift

The Tesla Model 3 has recently been facelifted and now it's the turn of its bigger brother, the Model Y. Tesla’s family SUV is currently the UK’s best-selling electric car and a mid-life facelift is set to boost appeal further; on the inside, the updated Tesla Model Y will get a new steering wheel, a slightly larger main touchscreen, plus an additional screen for those in the rear. Facelifted versions of the Model 3 can do over 400 miles on a charge and while we don’t expect the Model Y to be able to travel quite as far when it arrives towards the end of 2024, we’re certain it’ll at least get close to matching the 379 miles possible in the new Renault Scenic.

Toyota FT-Se

Toyota FT-Se

An electrified successor to lightweight sports cars like the MR2 and Celica, the Toyota FT-Se (as it’s currently known) has been revealed in striking concept form. Underpinned by Toyota’s next-generation battery tech, the FT-Se is currently being designed in conjunction with the brand’s Gazoo Racing performance division. Don’t get too excited by that road-hugging design and yoke steering wheel, though; the FT-Se isn’t expected until at least 2026, alongside Toyota's new line of cheaper and more efficient batteries. We’re pretty sure it’ll give the electric Porsche Cayman a run for its money when it does.

ID.2all

Volkswagen ID.2

Teased heavily by the recent ID.2all concept, the upcoming Volkswagen ID.2 is the German maker’s answer to the question: “what if they made an electric VW Polo?” Set to rival the Renault 5 and MINI Cooper Electric, the ID.2 will be the first model to sit on the brand’s new MEB Entry platform and will be sold alongside a brawnier ID.2 SUV. It’ll also debut Volkswagen’s new interior design which features a customisable driver’s display, giving you the option of replicating either the original Beetle or an old-school Golf GTI’s dials. All of this will be available from around £25,000 when the Volkswagen ID.2 goes on sale in 2025.

ID.3 GTX

Volkswagen ID.3 GTX

Volkswagen is launching a high-performance version of the ID.3 electric hatchback that will be, to all intents and purposes, a zero-emissions Golf GTI. The fully electric hot hatch is likely to use the same dual-motor powertrain as the ID.4 GTX and ID.5 GTX we’ve already tested, as well as ID. Buzz GTX Volkswagen has also teased. If correct, that’ll mean nearly 300bhp on tap, all-wheel drive and a 0-62mph time of around six seconds.

Volvo EX90

Volvo EX90

The zero-emissions replacement for Volvo's flagship seven-seat XC90 has been a long time coming, but the all-new, all-electric EX90 SUV has now been unveiled and will go on sale in late 2023. The EX90 uses the same platform and running gear as the Polestar 3, which means every model is powered by a 107kWh usable battery that feeds two electric motors – one on each axle – for all-wheel drive. It also offers up to 364 miles of range at launch, 250kW rapid charging speeds, features a Google-powered infotainment system and seven seats. It is quite a bit more expensive than the petrol XC90, though; prices start from £96,255.
