Well, there are a lot of candidates for what you might mean. Since Tesla is the undisputed market leader outside of China, pretty much everything gets compared to it. Let's do a rundown of the ones I'm aware of that are being called competition to Tesla. Chevy Bolt - Announced a year ago with a concept car, this compact hatchback was shown in a working production prototype at CES 2016. Chevy promises 200 miles of range, a price tag of $37,500 and 50 states availability. It's expected to be on sale late in 2016. Many people think that this car is competition for the Tesla Model III which will be unveiled in March 2016 with expected first deliveries in 2017. That car will have a minimum 200 mile range and a $35,000 price tag for the base model, so some relatively unsophisticated people think that they are in the same category. But the Bolt is a low- to mid-market compact hatchback and the Model III is a compact luxury car, two different segments with two different demographics typically purchasing them. And while the Bolt is peppy with 7 seconds to 60 mph granted to it by electric motors, the Model III will undoubtedly be a lot quicker in the base model and have a ton of upgrades to give it AWD, Ludicrous Mode, extended battery sizes and the like which will make it likely that many sold will be well north of $50K and possibly up in the $60-$70K range. A lot of people who might consider a Chevy Bolt would also consider the base Model III. Also, Chevy has to find a way to deal with the real problem of dealerships not liking to sell electric cars. Faraday Future - Also unveiled at CES 2016, Faraday is a company set up by a Chinese TV mogul. Lots of people have been touting them as a Tesla killer and they've been working up the comparisons by hiring Tesla employees, setting up manufacturing in some of the same states and the like. However, what Faraday showed off in a non-working concept at CES 2016 was a weird single-person hypothetically autonomous maybe aerodynamic lounge chair. It was a collection of memes without any proof of underlying technology. They burbled about alternative business models without any evidence that they actually have a real business model in mind. They have a lot of money, so maybe they'll turn into something real eventually, but they certainly aren't real today. Porsche Mission E - With this concept car announcement, we actually get to something that might actually challenge Tesla's Model S. The Mission E is supposed to be pretty high performance and Porsche actually knows how to do that. It's supposed to be pretty sexy, but what I saw looked more like Photoshop gone wild than any real car, so it's unclear what the real product will look like. It's supposed to charge faster than a Tesla too, but there is zero evidence of Porsche or anyone else building a Porsche Charging network, so while this may be possible in theory or in a handful of locations, it's not like Tesla's Supercharger network which is working to make itself ubiquitous. That's actually the part that baffles me. Why not just use the Supercharger network and get in bed with Tesla on that? Fit for purpose instead of going yet-another-charging direction. Maybe they'll get their heads on straight. Meanwhile, by the time the Mission E gets to market, Tesla will likely have the Model S, X and III on the market, and the Mission E will only really compete with the fully kitted out Model S. Audi E Tron Q6 - Audi have been promising an all electric E Tron for a while, and I heard rumblings somewhere that you could actually pay them to build you a boutique one off if you wanted to shell out the coin badly enough. They do sell a hybrid or two under the E Tron brand currently. Now they've unveiled an all electric SUV which would be in the same category as the Tesla Model X. Luxury SUVs and cross overs is actually a reasonably big and growing market, so an electric Audi SUV would be competition for the Tesla Model X. But not for the Model S or the Model III of course. And it will be really just more competition for the increasingly outclassed internal combustion SUVs. It's supposed to be on the market in 2018. Mercedes - In a recent announcement, Mercedes promised to massively accelerate their electric platform with not one car in 2018 as previously stated, but four cars in 2017. We'll see, but Tesla has been eating Mercedes market and mind share with its cars, so Mercedes has to step up to the plate. Aston Martin RapidE - This concept car was unveiled in late 2015 and is apparently being funded by deep pockets from China. It's expected in maybe 2017 or 2018, and since Aston Martin does great work with grand touring cars it's very reasonably a direct choice between it and the Tesla Model S. But once again, not the Model X or Model III, and certainly not the 2019 Roadster that's been announced with Maximum Plaid mode. VW - Well, the diesel test fixing scandal has actually lit a fire under the company, kind of. They have finally given their head a shake, realized that internal combustion isn't the future but the past and barely the present, and committed to a full electric-only platform and series of cars. But the ongoing costs associated with the scandal mean that the funding commitment is pretty light. We'll see. BYD - The Chinese company BYD is actually on the market today with an electric car it's targeting at fleet vehicles in the rest of the world, mostly taxis, and also electric buses. However, in China the BYD Qin is crushing electric car sales, outselling everything else. This is a story that the rest of the world is missing, that the 1.3 billion people in China are going to electric transportation pretty rapidly and doing it with their own brands we don't hear about. Expect new brands out of China to replace old internal combustion brands that don't radically transform their fleets. Basically, there are a lot of car companies that seem to have finally woken up to the reality that fully electric drive trains are the only viable path for regulated carbon and polluting emissions that also offers what consumers want. Most of them are being touted as competitors for Tesla, but they are really competitors for the incumbent internal combustion cars and brands and are validating Tesla.
Electric cars are already a mainstay on the roads, with a growing number of all-electric models being available to buy right now . The electric effect is now in full force, with established brands committing to offering a wider range of pure electric cars in the future, while those who depend heavily on diesel are seeing sales falter - with a deadline of 2035 in regions like the UK to halt sales in combustion cars. Prices are falling, models are diversifying and it's all going hand-in-hand with increased investment and roll-out of charging networks . But what electric cars are coming? Let's take a closer look at what you can expect to see hitting the roads in the next few years. JEEP Jeep Wrangler BEV Concept Jeep has teased an all-electric Wrangler. Thanks to a site looking forward to the future of Jeep , we now know that the brand is looking at an electric offroader. Not much is declared about the plans, but it does say more will be revealed at the Easter Jeep Safari. HYUNDAI Hyundai Ioniq 5 Hyundai has teased images of its forthcoming Ioniq 5. The Ioniq 5 is said to be based on the Hyundai 45 concept that was shown at the 2019 Frankfurt motorshow. It's expected to be a new E-GMP based battery electric vehicle and promised to get a world premiere in February 2021. KIA Kia future electric cars Kia has confirmed that there will be a new next-gen battery electric vehicle announced in early 2021. It will sit on the E-GMP platform, have a crossover-inspired design and over 500km of range. It will be the first launch under the new Kia branding and we suspect it will the car internally known as the Kia CV and closely related to the forthcoming Hyundai Ioniq 5. RENAULT Renault 5 Prototype When in doubt, roll in nostalgia. That seems to be the approach that Renault wants to take, showing off an prototype of an electric Renault 5. We've all got fond memories of this classic, and it would go head-to-head with the Mini Electric and the Honda e as a compact EV for urban dwellers. Please Renault, please, please, please reinvent the Renault 5. MOTOR1 Audi Q4 e-tron Audi unveiled two versions of the Q4 concept - the e-tron and the Sportback . It's very much following the lead of the original e-tron model, offering two styles of electric SUV in smaller sizes than the existing model. That will expand the range towards Q5 size. A range of 279 miles is claimed from an 82kWh battery for the Quattro models, a rear-wheel drive only model should hit 310 miles. We're expecting to see more of the Q4 e-tron later in 2020, with the Sportback due in 2021 - and already spotted in camouflage out testing. BMW BMW iX BMW has announced its flagship electric SUV, the BMW iX . This is the production model of the long-tease iNext, now appearing more like an electric X5 in terms of size. It promises a number of configurations, with 300 mile range, all-wheel drive and a 500ps model. There's a refreshed interior design too, so it feels like something of a continuation of the BMW i3. HYUNDAI Hyundai Kona Electric Hyundai has announced a refreshed version of the Kona Electric , due on the roads in 2021. While the underpinnings remain similar - it will still give impressive 300 mile range and come in two battery sizes - there's been a refresh to the interior and the exterior to make this car look a little more like an EV. No word on pricing, but we expect it to compeitive. GMC Hummer EV There's an electric Hummer coming that promises to be a capable as combustion version. Hummer is throwing in loads of tech and loads of power, wanting to rival the Tesla Cybertruck. There's 350 miles of range promised and a super-fast 350kW charging, while the motors will deliver 1000hp and a 0-60 time of 3 seconds. There's full visibility with cameras under the body, as well as the ability to drive diagonally, thanks to all-wheel steering. Production won't start until late 2021. DACIA Dacia Spring The Dacia Spring is now an official prodcution car. Aimed at the affordable end of the market, it has a range of 140 miles, rugged urban looks, and 44hp. It's designed as a mass market EV for city dwellers. There's no word on pricing, and we also don't know if it's coming to the UK. POLESTAR Polestar Precept The Polestar Precept was a concept design, but Polestar has announced that it's going to put it into production. It's going to be aimed at the premium end of the market, with grand coupe lines and the promise not just of zero tailpipe emissions - but of an environmentally conscious approach to all the materials used in the car. BMW BMW i4 The BMW i4 is due for launch in 2020 and will sit on the same fifth-gen eDrive system as the BMW i3X and the iX. The model is what might expect from a BMW Gran Coupe, but with massive teeth and the details of the eDrive system have already been confirmed. There will be an 80kWh battery that will charge at 150kW and give a range up to 370 miles. The motors will produce 530bhp, giving a 0-62mph time of 4 seconds and a top speed of 125mph. It looks and sounds exactly what you want your mid-range BMW saloon to produce. It will be on the roads in 2021 - but there's also been a tease of an M Performance model . VW VW ID.4 The VW ID.4 is official, the German company's second electric model, this time in compact SUV form. There will be several versions of the ID.4 with 310 miles on the top model, starting as a rear-wheel drive model and expanding to be all-wheel drive in the future. There's no price or exact date on the ID.4, but we can expect to see it in 2021. POCKET-LINT Porsche Macan Porsche has announced that the Macan is going to move to being pure electric - meaning that Porsche will have an electric SUV. It will join the luxury ranks of SUV EVs with a performance leaning, using the 800-volt system Porsche is using in the Taycan, and sitting on the PPE platform adapted from Audi. Not a lot else is being said at the moment, but the shifting of the Macan to electric shows real diversification of the Porsche portfolio. It is expected on the roads in 2022. FORD Ford has promised that there will be an electric F-150 on the roads in 2022. That's going to hit the US market in the big way. Ford hasn't said much about its plans, except that it doesn't want to compromise on the performance that the F-150 offers. SKODA Skoda Enyaq iV Skoda's first electric SUV is the Enyaq iV and it's going to be closely related to the VW ID.4, both sitting on the same platform. Three battery capacities and five power levels mean a range of options, although not all will come to all markets. Prices will start from £33.450 in the UK for the 242 miles range model. It will be on the road in 2021. NISSAN Nissan Ariya Nissan's latest electric car is the Ariya . It was originally unveiled as a concept in 2019, but has made its way to production practically unchanged. It's an SUV, sitting in the space between the Qashqai and the X-Trail. The Ariya will offer two battery sizes and a number of different motor configurations, as well as options for two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. With prices starting from an estimated £40,000, it's expected on the roads in 2021. BMW BMW iX3 No longer a concept, the BWM iX3 is the electric version of the X3, meaning you can how get an emission-free BMW SUV. It's a major step, with BMW moving into the mainstream, offering 285 miles from an 80kWh battery. It will first be launching in China 2020, with global roll-out in 2021. VAUXHALL Vauxhall Mokka-e Vauxhall has announced the second-gen Mokka , launching an electric version from the off. It will have a 50kW battery and promises over 200 miles of range. There will be 100kWh charging and a refreshed design, showing the new face of Vauxhall. It's an exciting change, slotting right into the competitive crossover space and it's great to see another EV in this space. It will be available from late summer 2020, price to be confirmed. AUDI Audi Artemis Audi has setup a special working group, called Artemis , with the aim of creating a highly-efficient electric car. The new group has been designed to work autonomously with plenty of freedom, with a target date of 2024 for a new vehicle. It's being headed up by Alex Hitzinger, formerly working on the Apple car project, and previously with some of the biggest names in motorsports. We're expecting something that pops out of the Audi template here, so watch this space. SAIC MOTORS MG 5 MG has said that it's bringing an electric estate car to the UK as soon as it can open showrooms again. Currently there are no electric estates so this fills a small gap in the options available, likely to appeal to those needing accessible load space and dog walkers. It looks to be based on the Chinese Roewe Ei5, and we're expecting a 52.5kWh battery and range of 260 miles. BMW BMW i7 BMW has confirmed that the next-generation of BMW 7 Series will include an all-electric version. It's not going to be exclusively electric as there will be petrol, diesel and hybrid versions too - but there's talk of two versions, the i7 and the i7S. The latter is expect to have a 120kWh battery, 660hp and a range of 320 miles. BMW is serious about electric cars and there's a lot in the pipeline - the BMW i7 will take things to the luxury level. RENAULT Renault Twingo ZE Renault has made one of its cutest cars electric in the Twingo ZE . This compact urban car is designed to keep the price down, with a 22kWh battery - good for 250km (143 miles) - and a 60kW motor, that will whisk you from 0-30mph in 4 seconds, perfect for city driving. There's no word on the price, but we've already heard it's not coming to the UK. FIAT Fiat 500 The Fiat 500 has been relaunched as an electric model, getting a redesign over the 2007 model that's been really popular. Now there's a 42kWh battery and 87kW motor, claiming 0-62mph in 9 seconds, but 0-30 in 3.1 seconds. It supports charging up to 85kW and will give you 199 miles of range (WLTP). There's four seats, lots of options (including convertible) and it's available to order from £29,000. TESLA Tesla Cybertruck If you wanted a vision of the future, then Tesla may have delivered it. Unveiling the Cybertruck , this is Elon Musk's promised pickup truck, with dual cab and then a loading bay at the rear. The Cybertruck is eye-catching with its unusual angular design. On the practical front it will come in three different versions with 250+, 300+ or 500+ miles of range, with the top model, a tri-motor version promising a 0-60mph time of 2.9 seconds. Tesla doesn't do things by half. It's available for pre-order now, deliveries expected from 2021. VW GROUP VW ID. Space Vizzion VW had long said it was going to have a full family of ID electric cars and the Space Vizzion is what you get when you pull together an electric estate or station wagon. It's quite the looker we can't help thinking and while many are focusing on SUV or crossover models, the lower and longer effect that you get from a wagon could do wonders for the performance of this EV, not to mention the boot space. It's a concept for now, but we're expecting this electric Passat (did we say that?) to be available in 2021. VW is saying 300 miles of range which isn't quite the 600 miles you'll get from the diesel, but we don't have to drive that far to walk the dog, so we'll all cope. FISKER Fisker Ocean Fisker is trying to shake things up with a range of luxury electric cars. The Fisker Ocean got an official unveiling in January 2020 - although it's not due on the road until 2022. It will use recycled and vegan materials, have an 80kWh battery and a range of 250-300 miles. Fisker wants to compete with Tesla with a 0-60 time of less than 3 seconds, but the big unique feature is the option for a full-length solar roof to help charge the battery. POCKET-LINT Electric Range Rover There's a fully electric Range Rover in the works, going under the name of Road Rover, because it's going to be slightly more road-centric than some of the other Range Rovers. It's supposed to sit between the Velar and the Evoque in terms of size, so it sounds a lot like the Jaguar i-Pace. Not much is currently known about what it might offer or when it might appear. POCKET-LINT Seat El-Born Seat is joining the electric car movement with the El-Born , named after a region of Barcelona. The car sits on VW's MEB platform and is due to arrive in 2020, getting its first appearance at the Geneva International Motorshow in 2019. Seat is looking at a 420km range (260 miles), with a 0-62kpm time of 7.5 seconds. There will be 204PS from the 150kW motor and a 62kWh battery. CUPRA Cupra El-Born Cupra - now a separate brand from Seat - has its own version of the el-Born. It also has the same name, Cupra El-Born , which doesn't really aid its cause of being seen as a separate entity. It has sporty looks, a custom chassis control and claims of 310 miles from the 82kW battery. POCKET-LINT Byton M-Byte Byton originally showed off an SUV EV concept , with broad ambitions for a start-up in the EV segment. That has now matured into the Byton M-Byte, with production getting started and looking to get on the road in mid-2020 - in China at least. The price of €54,000 sounds fairly aggressive, but there's little telling what verison that's for. There are two- or all-wheel drive options, with the latter claiming a 270 mile range. Most of the conversation is about the huge 43-inch display curving across the interior, however. POCKET-LINT Lotus Evija The Lotus Type 130 or Evija as it is called, is an all-electric hypercar limited to just 130 models, but paving the way for future production cars from Lotus. It has been designed for maximum performance, with 2000PS and a 70kWh battery that aims to give 250 miles of range. However, the car will offer blistering acceleration, and while Lotus hasn't given final figures, it'll hit 186mph in under 9 seconds. This car will cost £2 million pounds and preorders are open, asking for a £250,000 deposit. POCKET-LINT Lightyear One The Lightyear One is a luxury saloon that adds solar panels to the roof and bonnet of the car, aiming to give the owner a boost from the sun all the time - even when driving. While much of the car is conventional for an EV, the additional solar panels will give a 12km range boost per hour (in good light). That might mean free charging while parked at the beach - although in winter you'll have to charge it more. However, the asking price for the limited run Lightyear One will be €119,000, so going solar comes at a price. POCKET-LINT Audi e-tron GT concept Unveiled at the LA Auto Show 2018, the Audi e-tron GT Concept showcases Audi's future electric sportscar. This is a four seater, powered by the same batteries as the existing e-tron models and sharing a lot with the Porsche Taycan. Audi has been quite open about the co-development of the e-tron GT and the Taycan, and we're expecting a lot of technical similarities. The performances stats currently suggest an 800V charging system, 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds and a range of 248 miles. There's a vegan interior on the Concept model, with Audi saying that it wants to push the eco message even further. The Audi e-tron GT Concept will be hitting the roads in 2020. POCKET-LINT Rivian RS1 Rivian wants to join the EV movement with this offroader of its own. It's designed to tackle the great outdoors, boasting a wading depth of 3ft and 0-60mph time of 3 seconds. Why you'd need to go so fast offroad, we'll never know. Rivian is a newcomer to the EV space, showing off its cars for the first time at the LA Auto Show in 2018 - there's also a truck/pickup version - and is available for pre-order for a $1000 deposit. We'd be tempted to wait until these are actually on the road before parting with any money. POCKET-LINT BMW i5 BMW unveiled the i Vision Dynamics concept coupe at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2017. It previews a mid-sized saloon car, in the BMW i range that's likely to be called i5 when it launches in 2021. It's bigger than the company's 3-Series saloon, but smaller than a 5-Series and designed to sit between the i3 and i8 in the electric BMW i range. The family-sized car will be capable of reaching 60mph in under 4 seconds, go on to a speed over 120mph and be able to last up to 372 miles on a single charge. Let's hope it arrives with the same futuristic design displayed on the concept version. POCKET-LINT Faraday Future FF91 A huge question mark hangs over the striking FF91. The company has been through ups and downs, but managed to showcase pre-production drivable models in 2020. The FF-91 has a huge 126-inch wheelbase, but that makes for a huge interior. The panoramic sunroof, rear and side windows use Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal Glass, which passengers can tap on to tint the windows and let less light in. Don't expect to get a conventional rear-view mirror inside, as Faraday Future has replaced it with a widescreen monitor instead. The 1,050bhp electric power unit will accelerate to 60mph in 2.39-seconds and will have a driving range between 378 and 435 miles. Faraday Future says the battery can be completely recharged in 1 hour. POCKET-LINT ID Buzz and Cargo Concept The ID Buzz is due to go on sale in 2022. It references VW's historic Microbus and will able to seat up to eight people, with an interior that can be constantly changed around. There's also a Cargo Concept, which may well get launched before any passenger model arrives, with the rising demand for clean first and last mile transport. Two electric motors will give the ID Buzz a total power output of 369bhp to propel it to 60mph in around 5-seconds. It will be limited to a top speed of 100mph, will have four-wheel drive and a 372 mile driving range. You will be able to recharge the battery to 80 per cent, which VW says will be enough for 298 miles of travel, in 30 minutes.

Future Cars Worth Waiting For 2021-2025 Our sneak peeks of the most promising cars, trucks, and SUVs of the next few years. Even in the age of next-day delivery, self-checkout, and gigabit internet, some things can't be rushed. The cars, trucks, and SUVs seen here won't reach dealer lots for anywhere from a few months to a few years. Some of them are about to roll down the assembly line. Others haven't emerged from the design studio yet. We're telling you about them now, though, because these are the vehicles that will matter, regardless of how many boring crossovers automakers puke out. These are worth the wait. This video will give us information about future cars. 2021 Alfa Romeo GTV It's difficult not to love Alfa Romeo's Giulia Quadrifoglio. In spite of the sports sedan's tragic reliability record, it's still an absolute joy to drive and looks incredible. Who wouldn't want that in even sexier form, like, say, a two-door coupe? Good news! One is on its way, and it will resurrect the iconic GTV name and add electrification to the Quadrifoglio's 505-hp twin-turbo V-6. Expect up to 600 horsepower. 2021 Alfa Romeo Tonale The upcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale promises to be a rare beauty in a sea of luxury-subcompact crossovers. Plus it's Alfa Romeo's first hybrid model. Previewed by a concept model at last year's Geneva auto show, the production version should arrive later this year, starting around $35,000. 2024 Aston Martin Vanquish Aston Martin's next Vanquish will be a mid-engine supercar targeting the defining dream machines of the moment—cars such as the Ferrari F8 Tributo, Lamborghini's Huracán replacement, and the McLaren 720S and 765LT. Previewed by a concept car at the 2019 Geneva auto show (pictured), the Vanquish should start just north of $300,000 when it arrives in 2023. 2021 Audi e-Tron GT Audi's electric e-Tron lineup grows for 2021, with the shapely e-Tron GT joining today's e-Tron (no name, just e-Tron) crossover. There's no dancing around it: the GT is aimed squarely at Tesla's Model S. Audi is hoping it will deliver more than 250 miles of driving range and nearly 600 horsepower from a pair of electric motors (one per axle). Underneath its Blade Runner exterior hides, the same J1 architecture developed for fellow Volkswagen Group member Porsche, for its Taycan EV. 021 Audi Q4 e-Tron The Audi Q4 e-Tron is smaller and cheaper than the e-Tron and e-Tron Sportback, and it's aimed at the core of the crossover market. The Q4 e-Tron was initially previewed by a concept car (pictured) shown at the 2019 Geneva auto show. It will be the fourth electric Audi to come stateside but the first to use VW's MEB architecture designed exclusively for electric vehicles. It, too, will offer a slightly sleeker Sportback version. 2024 BMW i8 M BMW is working on a follow-up to the plug-in-hybrid i8 halo car, which in and of itself never really lived up to expectations. Previewed by the 2019 BMW Vision M Next concept car, this yet-to-be-named replacement (we've taken to calling it the i8 M) should place greater emphasis on performance than its predecessor did. It could also set the Bimmer world on fire with its retro M1-inspired style—it could have rear louvers, people! 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 The upcoming Chevy Corvette Z06 will be the first of several upcoming ultra-high-performance variants of the C8 Corvette. We expect it to go on sale in early 2021 as a 2022 model, starting at about $85,000. It will use a naturally aspirated DOHC 32-valve 5.5-liter V-8. Plus, it has a flat-plane crank, just like a Ferrari V-8. It should rev to between 8500 and 9000 rpm, spit out 600-plus horsepower, and shriek like something from Ferrari. 2022 Ferrari Purosangue SUV Ferrari is finally taking the leap and building an SUV. For a brand that built its reputation on racing (cars, that is), this new project is quite the departure. For now, the creation is being referred to by the Purosangue name, which is Italian for "thoroughbred," and will go up against the likes of the Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus, and Rolls-Royce Cullinan—if not in pure performance, at least in price. 2022 Ford Fusion Active Selling a station wagon in an American car market infatuated with SUVs is a risky play for a manufacturer. But once Ford kills off the Fusion sedan later this year or early next year, a lifted version of that stigmatized-yet-highly-practical type of vehicle will soon be as close as shoppers will come to finding a new family car in a Blue Oval showroom. Enter the Ford Fusion Active, which we've seen in spy photos and leaked images so far. 2022 Ford Maverick In a move that's sure to shake up the truck establishment, Ford is planning a third pickup model that will be smaller than the mid-size Ranger. Built on the same unibody platform as the Escape and Bronco Sport crossovers, the Maverick could be a true compact truck the likes of which we haven't seen in some time. It's slated to arrive later in 2021 or in early 2022, possibly with a starting price in the low-$20,000 range. 2022 GMC Hummer EV In an amazing twist of fate, General Motors' gas-guzzling middle-finger-flying Hummer brand, discontinued in 2010, is poised to make a comeback for 2022 as an all-electric sub-brand of GMC. The GMC Hummer EV SUT pickup truck offers up to 1000 horsepower and GMC claims it's capable of blasting from zero to 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds. It's set to go on sale at the end of 2021 in loaded First Edition form, with an SUV version to follow. 2022 Honda Civic Type R Honda confirmed that a new Civic Type R is on the way, and it should have a more mature look as previewed by a prototype of the 11th-generation Civic sedan. The second red-badged Civic to arrive in the U.S. will have a more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder under the hood—hopefully with a better soundtrack—mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, and Honda didn't rule out a quick-shifting dual-clutch transmission, either. We've heard rumors about a hybrid all-wheel-drive powertrain, but we think it's unlikely—at least at launch, which should be toward the end of 2021. 2023 Hyundai RM20 N Of all the newcomers to the mid-engine segment, no vehicle highlights the current sports-car zeitgeist quite like a mid-engine Hyundai, which could be called the RM20 N. When it arrives in two or three years, expect the Hyundai to bring mid-engine dynamics to a new level of affordability. As we understand it, the decision-makers in South Korea are still weighing whether their car should be a $40,000 Hyundai or a $70,000 Genesis. In our minds, there's no question. It's too soon for Genesis to challenge Corvettes and Porsches, but a proper sports car could validate both N and Hyundai. 2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz The Hyundai Santa Cruz is the automaker's foray into the pickup market. It follows Honda's approach rather than the formula that American manufacturers perfected. The unibody truck will be offered with a single bed length, a four-door crew cab, and a choice of four-cylinder engines. We expect to see Santa Fe's 2.4-liter and turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four paired with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. 2022 Jaguar XJ Jaguar's full-size XJ sedan is getting old, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the seductive four-door. Time marches on, however, and Jaguar is looking to replace the XJ (however handsome it is now) with an all-new model for 2021. And Jag is going bold: The next XJ will be fully electric, with some 300 miles of driving range and DC fast charging. 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Early in 2021, Jeep will launch an entirely new Grand Cherokee. It likely won't make it into buyers' hands until later in the year, as production has been delayed. What those new owners will get is a Jeep based on a version of the Alfa Romeo Giorgio platform found under the Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV. The Grand Cherokee will be significantly longer than the trim little Stelvio, though. Not only will the Jeep's wheelbase surpass the Alfa's 110.9 inches, we expect it to be longer than the current Grand Cherokee's 114.7 inches. Not only will be roomier than the outgoing model, but it will also offer a three-row version with up to seven seats, as pictured here in spy photos. 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Jeep is bringing back the iconic Wagoneer nameplate for a new full-size SUV offering. Shown so far in concept form, the Wagoneer, and Grand Wagoneer will compete with the likes of the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban. They will use a version of the Ram 1500's body-on-frame platform, with the Grand Wagoneer being the more luxurious version costing over $100,000 fully loaded. Three rows of seats will be standard, as will four-wheel drive. We expect V-6 and V-8 engine options along with hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants. 2023 Land Rover Defender 80 The upcoming Defender 80 is a new baby Land Rover set to be positioned below the recently revived Defender in the brand hierarchy. If it reaches the U.S. market, it could provide a more affordable entry point to the off-road-oriented Defender range. U.K. media reports have named it the 80—given that Land Rover calls the two- and four-door Defenders the 90 and the 110, respectively—although there is no confirmation of that. 2022 Lexus LQ Lexus is still lacking the modern, high-end SUV that virtually every other luxury vehicle maker has to offer affluent shoppers. The upcoming Lexus LQ, which will serve as a sleek range-topping crossover, should address that shortcoming. Previewed by the LF-1 Limitless concept (pictured), the longitudinal-engine LQ should share key structural elements with the LS sedan. It also should share its powertrains, including the 416-hp twin-turbo V-6 and its 354-hp hybrid powertrain. An F performance model might even pack a twin-turbo V-8 good for 600-plus horsepower. Maserati MC20 The upcoming MC20 is a mid-engine reminder that Maserati exists. Rather than a successor to the ultrarare, hyper-expensive MC12, the MC20 is a run-of-the-mill six-figure Italian sports car offered in both coupe and convertible forms. Maserati promises that the MC20 marks the start of a new phase in the brand's history, which it desperately needs if its vehicles are going to be relevant again. Maserati recently released technical details about the MC20's twin-turbo V-6 engine, which will produce 621 horsepower.
Future cars: The best upcoming cars worth waiting for Cars aren’t just a mode of transportation anymore — they’re becoming large smart devices with wheels. I’m not just referring to EVs. Gasoline-powered vehicles and hybrids are smarter than ever with various driver-assist systems, personal assistants, advanced powertrain technology, and loads of safety features. In the past, future cars were a simple evolution of the model before, but that has completely changed. The competitive nature of the automotive industry coupled with the latest technological advancements will pave the way for future cars that we could have only dreamed of a decade ago. One good example is the Hyundai Prophecy concept, a stunning, self-driving electric car with Blade Runner-like technology. It comes from a company no one thought much about just a few years ago. It’s not alone; we’ve compiled a list of the 20 best future cars that will arrive by 2022. 2021 Rivian R1T and R1S Available in: 2021 Base price: $69,000 (R1T), 72,500 (R1S) Why it’s worth the wait: Because it accelerates like a sports car, can off-road like Land Rover’s Range Rover, and has a quad-motor system (don’t forget about its tank turning ability). The main difference between Rivian‘s R1T and R1S is the body. The basic platform (including the lithium-ion battery pack and the four motors) is the same: the different power outputs, the 125-mph top speed, and the supercar-like acceleration. There are three variants of each model. The most basic one has a 105-kilowatt-hour battery pack that delivers up to 230 miles of range, 402 horsepower, and a zero-to-60-mph time of 4.9 seconds. Next up is a model with a 135-kWh battery, a 300-mile range, a whopping 754 hp, and a three-second sprint to 60. Finally, the 180-kWh model can drive for up to 400 miles between charges, makes 700 hp, and reaches 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. The R1T has a 1,764-pound payload capacity and an 11,000-pound towing capacity if you're more into hauling. 2022 Ferrari Purosangue Available in: 2021 Base price: $350,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: This is Ferrari’s first SUV, what else is there to say? For many years, Ferrari promised it would never do what almost every automaker has done: Make an SUV. That’s why the Italian firm prefers the term FUV, which stands for Ferrari Utility Vehicle. Regardless, the Purosangue is going to be good-looking, loud, high-tech, and, of course, exceptionally quick. We don’t expect to find a V12 under the hood, but a hybrid system made up of a twin-turbocharged V8 and one or more electric motors is likely. Early estimates peg its output at over 700 horsepower but under the SF90’s 986-horse rating. All-wheel drive and an adjustable suspension should guarantee at least a smidge of off-road prowess. Visually, the Purosangue will likely borrow a handful of styling cues from the GTC4Lusso hatchback (pictured above). 2021 Audi E-Tron GT Available in: 2021 Base price: $90,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: It’s Audi’s Tesla-fighter. If you squint, you might see some of the Porsche Taycan‘s DNA while looking at the Audi E-Tron GT concept. That’s hardly a surprise: The two electric sedans are built on the same bones. We haven’t seen the production version of Audi’s sleek four-door yet, but the concept is a real head-turner. Its dual-motor powertrain gives it 590 horsepower and allows it to reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds while keeping your foot down will get it to 124 mph in 12 seconds. Audi claims a 249-mile driving range on the European testing cycle. We’ll have a better idea of what the specifications sheet will look like when the production model makes its debut in late 2020. 2022 Polestar 3 Available in: 2021 Base price: $70,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: The 3 will take Volvo-owned Polestar into the SUV segment. Polestar’s 1, a plug-in hybrid coupe, and 2, an electric fastback, are both in production. The firm is now looking ahead to its tallest vehicle yet, the aptly-named 3. Official specifications about this SUV are few and far between but we expect dual-motor all-wheel-drive, about 300 miles of range, and an updated version of the Android-powered infotainment system that made its debut in the 2. From a design standpoint, Polestar told Digital Trends the 3 will draw inspiration from the Precept concept (shown above) unveiled in 2020. Anyone can get an exclusive idea of these cars by watching this video. 2021 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing and CT4-V Blackwing Available in: 2021 Base price: $65,000 (CT4) (est.), $85,000 (CT5) (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: They’re Cadillac’s next super-sedans. Cadillac still gives a shift. The sedan that will replace the CTS-V will continue to offer a six-speed manual transmission. Those who don’t need or want three pedals will be able to order a 10-speed automatic. Either way, we expect the CT5-V Blackwing will receive Cadillac’s 6.2-liter V8 supercharged to 650 hp. The smaller CT4-V Blackwing (shown above) will replace the excellent ATS-V. It will receive an evolution of its predecessor’s twin-turbocharged, 3.6-liter V6 rated at over 465 hp. Transmission options will include a 10-speed automatic and a six-speed stick. To be clear, neither of these high-performance family-haulers will receive the seemingly short-lived Blackwing V8 inaugurated by the CT6-V. This orphan of an engine might not be used again. 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 Available in: 2021 (or late 2020) Base price: $36,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: It’s the first purpose-designed electric car Volkswagen will sell in the U.S. The Tiguan-sized ID.4 is an electric crossover that will join Volkswagen’s battery-only ID sub-brand. Although not a ton of information has been released about it, we know a rear-wheel drive, single-motor version will be available at launch and an all-wheel-drive, dual-motor model will join the range a little later. The ID.4 will be built on Volkswagen’s modular MEB platform, which also underpins the Europe-only ID.3 and the ID. Buggy we drove in California in 2019. It will later be joined in showrooms by an electric van inspired by the rear-engined Bus. 2022 Tesla Roadster Available in: 2021 (or 2022) Base price: $200,000 Why it’s worth the wait: This will be Tesla’s most powerful and fastest car. No, we’re not talking about t he original Roadster that Elon Musk launched into space; we’re looking forward to the second-generation model, which will arrive as an electric supercar. The next Roadster will use an extra-large, 200-kWh battery pack that will give it incredible performance. Tesla claims a 1.9-second zero-to-60-mph time (or, if you’re brave, zero-to-100 in 4.3 seconds), an 8.8-second quarter-mile time, and a top speed of over 250 mph. We expect the all-wheel-drive Roadster will pack three electric motors (one upfront and two in the rear) but a two-motor configuration is also possible. The four-seater EV will also offer a generous, 620-mile driving range and a removable glass roof. Tesla is already taking reservations so enthusiasts can make a $5,000 initial deposit and a $45,000 payment within 10 days. The Founders Series Roadster requires a much higher $245,000 payment within 10 days. 2021 Volkswagen Golf GTI Available in: 2021 Base price: $29,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: Because it’s a hot hatch icon that’s practical, fun to drive, and affordable. The upcoming eighth-generation GTI has more power than its predecessor. This probably answers your first question. It’s still powered by a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine but its output now checks in at 241 hp and 273 lb-ft. of torque compared to 228 and 258, respectively, for the outgoing model. Volkswagen makes a six-speed manual transmission standard but a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is offered at an extra cost. On the tech front, a 10-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system and a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster help give the interior a modern and premium look. Expect slightly more space for people and gear thanks to the eighth-gen Golf’s larger dimensions. The GTI will go on sale in Europe before it reaches North America. 2021 BMW i4 Available in: 2021 Base price: $50,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: This is BMW’s answer to the Tesla Model 3. The i4 will be BMW’s third i-badged car when it enters production in Munich, Germany, in 2021. Its 80-kWh lithium-ion battery pack will power a 530-hp powertrain that will unlock a 3.5-second sprint from zero to 60 mph. The range will check in at about 270 miles. We haven’t seen the production version yet, but the concept (shown above) introduced in 2020 gives us an accurate idea of what the model will look like when it lands in showrooms. 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Available in: Late 2020 Base price: $43,895 Why it’s worth the wait: It’s Ford’s first purpose-designed EV. The sporty-looking Mustang Mach-E is an electric crossover, not a sports car, but it’s quick nonetheless. It will be offered in five variants ranging from the entry-level Select to the flagship GT. The range champion will be the rear-wheel-drive California Route 1, which will be capable of driving for about 300 miles between charges. Don’t let the name fool you; the Mach-E shares nothing with the two-door Mustang. It’s electric, and it’s packed with cutting-edge tech features like a portrait-oriented touchscreen on the center stack. 2021 BMW M3 and M4 Available in: 2020 Base price: $40,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: It’s the latest in a long line of driver-friendly BMW models. Rear-wheel drive and manual transmission? Yes, please! Don’t worry if that’s not for you; an automatic transmission will also be available. All-wheel drive will join the list of options for the first time, too. Purists will undoubtedly shun this version but it will be a little bit quicker than the rear-wheel-drive variant. The next-generation M3 (and its two-door counterpart, the M4) will share their twin-turbocharged, 3.0-liter straight-six with the X3 M. It makes 473 hp and 442 lb-ft. of torque in its most basic state of tune, and 503 hp in Competition trim. Time will tell if BMW keeps these figures for its lower models or if it builds on them. 2021 Mercedes EQC Available in: 2021 Base price: $67,900 Why it’s worth the wait: It’s the most convincing electric car from Mercedes-Benz to date. Mercedes-Benz delayed the North American launch of its electric EQC crossover by a year, so we’ll have to wait and see what the three-pointed star’s answer to Tesla is really like. Fortunately, for us, we have plenty of information about this dual-motor, all-wheel-drive electric car. The powertrain generates 402 hp and 561 lb-ft. of torque, which launches the EQC to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds. An 80-kWh battery pack powers the motors. Its range should check-in at approximately 220 miles, though we won’t know for sure until it lands on our shores. The EQC will offer a long list of driver-assistance features and dual 10.25-inch touchscreens — one for the digital instrument cluster, and the second for the infotainment system. Pricing starts at $67,900 before incentives. 2022 GMC Hummer Available in: Late 2021 Base price: $70,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: It’s GMC’s entry into the electric truck segment. Like many electric trucks, the GMC Hummer will have a lot of big numbers to brag about. How do three motors and 1,000 horsepower sound? Or, a three-second sprint to 60 mph? GMC will offer one-, two-, and three-motor variants of the born-again Hummer. Its large, 200-kWh battery pack will unlock up to 400 miles of driving range, though smaller batteries will be available. Production will take place in Detroit, in the same factory that once built Chevrolet’s Volt and Impala models, and the pickup will reach showrooms at about the same time as some of its rivals, including the Rivian R1T and the electric Ford F-150. 2022 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer Available in: Late 2021 Base price: $40,000 (est.), $50,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: Because they will be Jeep’s biggest and most luxurious models. The Grand Cherokee is big, but it’s not big enough. Considering Jeep is an off-roader specialist in a world dominated by high-riding models, it’s a little odd to notice it doesn’t have a full-size, three-row SUV to compete with the Ford Expedition and the Chevrolet Tahoe, among others. That will change in the early 2020s. Jeep confirmed it’s bringing back the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer nameplates on a pair of SUVs that will share their body-on-frame construction with the surprisingly docile Ram 1500 pickup. They’ll get an independent rear suspension, up to three rows of seats, and a wide panoply of powertrains including hybrid and diesel options. The luxurious Grand Wagoneer will chase the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator into the six-digit territory. 2022 Tesla Cybertruck Available in: Late 2021 (or 2022) Base price: $39,900 Why it’s worth the wait: It’s the first electric truck from the company that started the EV craze. Before we dive into the specs and pricing, remember that this futuristic-looking truck has an outer exterior shell (or exoskeleton) made of what Tesla calls ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel. It also has what the company calls armor glass, glass and polymer layered composite that is made to be stronger than regular glass, though this didn’t work as advertised in 2019. And, the cargo box is configured to hold (and charge) an electric ATV. The Cybertruck will come in three flavors. The base, rear-wheel-drive single-motor version ($39,900) will have a driving range of up to 250 miles, a 7,500-pound towing capacity, and a 6.5-second zero-to-60-mph time. The mid-range, all-wheel-drive model ($49,900) will have a 300-mile range, a 10,000-pound towing capacity, and a 4.5-second zero-to-60 time. Finally, the flagship model ($69,900) will drive for about 500 miles between charges, tow 14,000 pounds, and reach 60 in 2.9 seconds. An autopilot and an air suspension will be standard on every variant. 2021 Ford Bronco and Bronco Sport Available in: Late 2020 (or early 2021) Base price: $32,000 (Bronco, est.), $28,000 (Bronco Sport, est.) Why it’s worth the wait: The legendary Bronco nameplate returns to compete against the Jeep Wrangler. The Bronco is back, and it has the emblematic Jeep Wrangler in its crosshairs. This rugged, body-on-frame off-roader will be available with two or four doors and both versions will come with a removable top. Adventurers will also be able to remove the doors and fold down the windshield. Ford has done its best to keep the design under wraps until the model’s official unveiling but a variety of leaked images revealed it ahead of time. Sources close to the Blue oval suggest the entry-level engine will be an evolution of the turbocharged, 2.3-liter four-cylinder that equips the Ranger. V6 engines from the F-150 might appear on the list of options. Rumors claim a 10-speed automatic transmission will be standard, and a seven-speed manual with a granny gear will be optional. Aimed right at Jeep’s Compass, the smaller Bronco Sport won’t be as rugged but it should still be capable when the going gets tough. It will be built on a unibody platform shared with the new Escape, and it will receive three- and four-cylinder engines depending on the trim level. Hybrid power will be available sooner or later, too. Both variants of the Bronco — which won’t share anything other than a name — will make their debut in 2020. 2022 Ford F-150 Electric Available in: 2022 (or late 2021) Base price: $60,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: It’s the electric version of America’s most popular truck. Unlike the other electric trucks on the list, there is currently little information on the F-150 Electric (prototype pictured above). Besides its ability to tow a train, which isn’t as impressive as it might sound, we don’t know much about it. It’s safe to say this pickup will offer quick acceleration (zero-to-60-mph in about four seconds), a driving range in the vicinity of 300 miles, and multiple motor configurations with different power outputs. Regardless of specifications, the electric F-150 will have plenty of competition when it goes on sale. It will be interesting to see if Ford’s hot-selling trucks can continue outselling their rivals in the EV world. 2020 Audi RS6 Avant Available in: 2020 Base price: $109,000 Why it’s worth the wait: It’s a fast, gorgeous super-wagon — and a rare thing in America. Audi is finally bringing the high-performance RS 6 Avant to the United States. It was worth the wait because it packs a twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V8 that sends 591 hp and 590 lb-ft. of torque to the four wheels via Audi’s time-tested Quattro system. These figures correspond to a 3.5-second sprint to 60 mph, though that’s likely a conservative number and a 190-mph top speed. It’s high-tech, too, thanks in part to a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that keeps fuel economy in check and a long list of driver-assistance features. Inside, there’s a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a pair of large, high-resolution color touchscreens for the infotainment system. This is arguably the hottest-looking Audi available in 2020, though the RS 7 Sportback isn’t far behind. 2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Available in: 2021 (or late 2020) Base price: $109,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: It’s the most practical version of the Porsche Taycan and it’s a wagon. Somehow, a second wagon landed on this list. It’s not your average family hauler; this wagon is electric and, best of all, it’s a Porsche. Positioned as a more spacious evolution of the Taycan, the Cross Turismo will get a more rugged design and a few additional inches of ground clearance to allow for light off-roading. We expect it will be identical to its sedan counterpart under the sheet metal, so it will post impressive performance numbers. 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Available in: 2021 Base price: $99,000 (est.) Why it’s worth the wait: Except for models from brands like Rolls-Royce and Bentley, the Mercedes S-Class has been the benchmark of large luxury sedans for decades. It’s a little easier to forget the high price when you purchase such a highly advanced piece of technology. Until recently, it would have been weird to say that a vehicle is a technological masterpiece. However, with all the incredible innovations and improvements within the auto industry, we’ll certainly be seeing and experiencing first-hand the aftereffects in our vehicles. We’re confident that brand new features like driver assistance will astound anyone without prior experience with similar systems. One of the many exceptional upgrades to the vehicle’s interior is a vertical touchscreen on the dashboard. If you love screens, you’ll love this new feature. With this vehicle, you’ll get four additional screens in separate areas throughout the car, offering an entirely new dynamic experience between driver and car. Thanks to a 3D Digital Instrument Cluster, drivers can connect with their car environments in seemingly impossible ways. The S500 model offers a hefty 429 hp 3.0-liter motor. With the EQ boost mild-hybrid system, you could increase your horsepower to 450hp. Those seeking exceptional performance and comfort will receive a 500hp motor and plug-in hybrid feature with the S580 model. Both models provide rear-wheel steering to help you out during difficult parking situations. The S-Class features a hydro-pneumatic suspension system (much like the one installed in the GLC) for optimal comfort and a bump-free ride. We believe the S-Class is in a stable place to triumph over all competitors within the luxury hybrid market. We’ll see how it plays out over time, but it will be fun to watch what happens in the market. Customers looking for a luxury EV should check out the EQS, set to release in the early 2020s.
