Car Pro Guide to Current And Upcoming All-Electric Vehicles
Amy Plemons | November 24, 2018
Since we first published our guide to electric cars in 2016 things have progressed at a very fast pace. The number of electric vehicle choices is growing quickly, and especially for those living in states like California. Battery ranges are getting longer, easing so-called driver range anxiety, plus the electric charging infrastructure is improving, although it still has a ways to go to encompass mainstream buyers across the nation.
Automakers Embrace Electric Future
Automakers are diving into electric vehicles with millions of dollars as they ramp to to build complete EV lineups (including hybrids, plug-in hybrids and all-electrics) as soon as next year. Volvo says every new model introduced in 2019 will be a hybrid or all-electric with five fully-electric EVs by 2021. BMW promises 12 all-electric vehicles by 2025. Ford plans to spend $11 billion on all electric vehicles between now and 2022 and plans include a new all-electric CUV with a 300-mile range due in 2020. GM says it will launch 20 all-electric vehicles by 2023. Mercedes-Benz is launching the EQ brand and its first all-electric vehicle will be an SUV. Kia plans 10 electrified vehicles of various degrees by 2020. Hyundai has all-electric models in the works like the Kona Electric. Plus its luxury Genesis brand expects to launch a 300-mile range all-electric sedan in 2021. Volkswagen’s ambitious plan includes launching 27 all-electric vehicles, also encompassing Audi, by 2022. Toyota (and Lexus), lagging a bit behind the eight ball in terms of all-electric offerings, is stepping up its pace. Toyota says it will have more than 10 battery-only electric cars for sale starting from 2020, with China the first market.
