The auto industry is undergoing a fundamental shift in powertrain technology to battery-powered electric vehicles, or EVs, and a host of them are about to hit the market.
Here are 13 EVs coming within the next few years.
Electric vehicles coming soon
Arriving next year, Cadillac’s first EV will employ GM’s Ultium battery architecture, delivering more than 300 miles of range. Inside, the Lyriq features a 33-inch curved LED display, dual-plane augmented reality head-up display, remote self-parking and Super Cruise, Cadillac’s hands-free driving system.
The new Bolt EUV crossover joins a redesigned Bolt later this year, priced from $33,995. The Bolt EUV, 6 inches longer than the Bolt, has a 250-mile range, and adds 95 miles of range in 30 minutes with a fast charger. Also, it’s available with Super Cruise, GM’s hands-free driving assistance system.
Details are meager on plans for an all-electric version of the world’s best-selling vehicle. To prove its intent, Ford had an electric F-150 prototype tow 1 million pounds of F-150s loaded on rail cars. Reports indicate a price starting around $75,000 for availability early next year.
The first production vehicle to use GM’s all-new Ultium battery, the GMC Hummer EV pickup has a range of more than 350 miles, and 625, 800 or 1,000 horsepower depending on whether you order one, two or three electric motors. Super Cruise is standard. Prices start at $79,995.
Arriving at dealers this summer, the Cross Turismo offers more cargo space than the standard Taycan, and will feature dual-motor all-wheel drive, a two-speed rear transmission, and Porsche adaptive air suspension. Performance matches the Taycan. Prices start at $90,900.
VW’s first EV is under its ID sub-brand. Smaller than a Tiguan, but boasting more interior space, the ID.4 crossover has room for five and 30 cubic feet of stuff. With 201 horsepower, and 250 miles of range, it recharges up to 80 percent in 38 minutes. Prices start at $39,995.
