Welcome to the era of electric cars. What was once a dream is now the reality. Though they only make up a small portion of the new car market, Electric Vehicles (EVs) are where the action’s at when it comes to the exciting realms of vehicular development.
While Tesla may have carved out a solid niche as a leader of cutting-edge automobiles and Porsche has redefined sport sedans, the upcoming EVs in the next few years will be the ones that truly open up the electric vehicle market. Pickup trucks and SUVs packing battery packs instead of gas engines will soon be rolling off production lines, reinventing the automotive landscape.
Here are five upcoming Electric Cars you’d want to be seen in:
1. Kia EV6
Kia is coming out swinging with new electric cars in 2021, launching the first in a volley of EVs built on their new Electric-Global Modular Platform. The EV6 offers versions for everyday folks with 168 to 321 hp, but an EV6 GT that packs dual motors and makes 577 horsepower, 546 lb-ft of torque, and does a claimed 0-60 mph spring in 3.5 seconds. Add in world-class fast-charging, a stylish design inside and out and (assumably) a value-packed price, do you see why you want to be driving this?
2. Mercedes-Benz EQS
Similar to Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz is going all-out on EVs in the next few years, with plans to roll out an electric equivalent to each of its major model ranges. The new full-sized EQS sedan revealed in April 2021 shows what Mercedes is planning.
The EV packaging means you’ll be getting the size of an E-Class exterior, with the interior space of an S-Class; you'll also find S-Class-rivalling luxury and power, all packaged in a very aerodynamic, very cool body.
3. BMW i4
The BMW i division's second chance at life kicks off with the launch of the i4, an all-electric midsize sedan design to compete with the Tesla Model 3. The range of this roughly 3 Series-sized is estimated to be well over 300 miles, and power in max-attack versions should be enough to get the mighty M3 to step aside.
Choosing an EV, aside from its unbeatable level of coolness, helps the environment as they emit fewer greenhouse gases and air pollutants than petrol or diesel cars.
