Here Are the New Electric Vehicles Planned by 2026

jeep recon 01 exterior oem scaled jpg Jeep Recon | Manufacturer image

The landscape for electric vehicles already has changed a lot for the 2023 model year, with many more choices for shoppers ready to take the plunge, and the faster pace looks likely to continue as automakers fill out their lineups with EVs that could replace some of their core gasoline vehicles.

Related: What’s New With Electric Vehicles for 2023?

Below are some of the new EVs planned or expected for the U.S. market through 2026, excluding exotic and specialty vehicles. Details are lacking for some, while others already have been shown as concepts or even in near-production form. As is typical for new EVs, the expected arrival years may change, and most are listed here for the expected calendar year, not necessarily model year. The recent extension of the federal EV subsidy program that favors North American production also might cause plans or timing to change for some EVs built elsewhere. In most cases, listed prices do not include still-to-be-announced destination fees.

Pickup Trucks

Canoo Pickup

Expected: Late 2023

The EV startup Canoo expects to begin production of its first vehicles at a new plant in Oklahoma by the end of 2023. One of those is the Canoo Pickup, a cab-forward mid-size truck the automaker says will have an 1,800-pound payload, rear- or all-wheel drive, and an estimated range of more than 200 miles. It has a 6-foot bed that can extend to 8 feet and flip-down bed sides that can be used as work surfaces.

Chevrolet Silverado EV

Expected: Late 2023

An EV version of Chevrolet’s full-size pickup is coming for the 2024 model year, and Chevy estimates it will have a range up to 400 miles. The crew-cab truck will use GM’s Ultium battery system, have dual-motor AWD and also offer a work version. Chevy says the Work Truck will have output of 510 horsepower, while a fancy launch edition, the RST First Edition, will boast peak output up to 664 hp. The truck will be capable of DC fast charging up to 350 kilowatts and be able to power external devices with up to 10.2 kW of juice. Like the old Avalanche pickup, the EV includes a “midgate” pass-through to add 3 feet of additional cargo space into the cab area for longer cargo; the pickup’s bed measures just under 6 feet. Estimated towing and payload capacity are 8,000 pounds and 1,200 pounds for the Work Truck, respectively, and 20,000 and 1,300 for the RST First Edition. Pricing is a lofty $105,000 for the RST; the Work Truck will go initially to fleet buyers but eventually is expected to start at about $40,000 for individuals.

Lordstown Motors Endurance

Expected: 2023

This financially troubled startup sold its former GM plant in Lordstown, Ohio, to Foxconn, a Taiwanese manufacturer. Foxconn has begun production of the pickup and also invested in the startup. Lordstown hopes to turn out 500 trucks in 2023 and then ramp up. The full-size crew-cab truck has a novel AWD system with a separate motor in each wheel hub and targeted combined output of 440 hp. The truck will have a payload of 1,050 pounds and can tow up to 8,000 pounds. Final specs and pricing are still to be announced.

GMC Sierra EV

Expected: 2024

As with GM’s gasoline pickups, the GMC Sierra EV is a more upscale version of the Chevrolet Silverado EV. The launch model will be the Sierra EV Denali Edition 1 and will boast a GM Ultium battery system, dual-motor AWD, up to 754 hp, DC fast charging at up to 350 kW and an estimated maximum range of 400 miles. Among features will be adaptable air suspension, GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driving system that can be used while towing, a 9,500-pound towing capacity and a system to power external devices with up to 10.2 kW. Like the Silverado EV, the GMC has a midgate pass-through to extend the 6-foot bed into the cab area an additional 3 feet. The Denali Edition 1 will start at about $107,000.

Ram 1500 EV

Expected: 2024

Ram has shown only a concept so far of its planned 1500 full-size EV pickup, with few details beyond its planned production sometime in 2024. The truck will ride on a new Stellantis platform designed for body-on-frame EVs.

Tesla Cybertruck

Expected: Late 2023?

The much-delayed Cybertruck from Tesla now is expected to be in mass production late in 2023, sources have told Reuters. Tesla said earlier that the crew-cab truck with an exotic triangular shape and 6.5-foot bed eventually will offer one-, two- and three-motor versions for rear- or all-wheel drive, offer up to 500 miles of range, have a payload of up to 3,500 pounds and be able to tow up to 14,000 pounds.

Toyota Pickup

Expected: By 2025

Toyota has been moving cautiously on EVs after announcing in 2021 a global plan for 15 all-electric vehicles by 2025 — including an unspecified pickup. The company now is reported to be revising its plan to pick up the pace. In December, Toyota showed an EV concept in Thailand of its foreign market Hilux mid-size truck but offered no comment on production plans for it.

Sedans and Hatchbacks

Audi A6 e-Tron

Expected: 2024

Volkswagen’s luxury brand previewed the A6 e-Tron concept in 2021 in China, Audi’s biggest market. While the near-production concept for a new electric sedan shares the dimensions of the gas-powered A6, it’s otherwise different, with a sloped hatchback design that evokes an A7. The concept marked the debut of the new modular premium electric platform developed with sibling brand Porsche that will underpin other new EVs, perhaps including a Q6 e-Tron SUV. The A6 e-Tron features AWD with two motors that put out a combined 469 hp, DC fast-charging capability up to 270 kW and a maximum range that could exceed 400 miles.

BMW i5

Expected: Late 2023

BMW’s 5 Series mid-size sedan is being redesigned for 2024, and as with the just-redesigned 7 Series, it’s expected to offer a full range of powertrains including an electric i5 sedan. Details are still to come.

Chrysler EV Sedan

Expected: 2025

Stellantis-brand Chrysler has announced that it will deliver an EV by 2025 on the way to being an all-electric brand by 2028. At the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show, it rolled out a mostly down-to-earth Airflow Concept sedan that could hint at the direction for a production EV.

Dodge e-Muscle

Expected: 2024

Dodge has announced that the end of 2023 will be the end of the road for the Challenger and Charger, making way for a new era of electric muscle cars to follow. To show fans what that could look like, it created the Charger Daytona SRT Concept.

Fiat 500e

Expected: Early 2024

The Fiat 500e is coming back after departing the U.S. following the 2019 model year. The updated minicar has the familiar two-door hatchback design but a new all-electric powertrain. The coming 500e was teased in November with European models at the 2022 Los Angeles Auto Show; a U.S.-spec model is to be detailed at the 2023 L.A. show.

Polestar 5

Expected: 2024

Not much has been revealed yet, other than the brand says its Polestar 5 EV will be a high-performance four-door GT car and that the production car is an evolution of the brand’s Precept concept revealed in 2020.

Volkswagen ID.7

Expected: 2024

VW’s first electric sedan was shown in camouflage at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show, and the Passat-size four-door appears to share design cues with the current ID.4, the SUV with which it also shares a modular EV platform. Volkswagen provided no specifics about the ID.7, but a global reveal is scheduled for the second quarter of 2023.


Canoo Lifestyle Vehicle

Expected: Late 2023

Along with the Canoo Pickup mentioned above, the EV startup plans to start production of its Lifestyle Vehicle, a small van with an unusual cabin design of two to seven seats for commercial and passenger van applications. The company estimates a 200-mile range.

Volkswagen ID.Buzz

Expected: 2024

The iconic VW Microbus is being revived with retro style in EV form. The U.S. will get a long-wheelbase minivan version of the ID.Buzz in 2024, while Europe is first getting a smaller five-seat version that’s not planned for the U.S. but was shown here in April 2022. Specifications for the U.S. version have not yet been revealed.

Acura ZDX

Expected: 2024

Honda’s Acura premium brand has said it will bring back the ZDX name for an electric SUV sometime in 2024. It is expected to be an upscale version of the Honda Prologue (see below), an SUV being jointly developed with GM and using GM’s Ultium battery system.

Chevrolet Blazer EV

Expected: 2023

Chevrolet will take on rival Ford’s Mustang Mach-E with an EV version of its sporty Camaro-inspired Blazer SUV. The Blazer EV runs on a choice of three GM Ultium battery packs and offers up to 557 hp. It also offers an unusual triple choice of front-, rear- or all-wheel drive. The sporty interior is highlighted by an available 17.7-inch touchscreen, optional GM Super Cruise hands-free highway cruise control and a hands-free start system that can be used via key fob or enabled smartphone — just get in and push the brake pedal to start. Some versions will arrive in 2023, some not until 2024. Pricing ranges from about $45,000 to $65,000.

Chevrolet Equinox EV

Expected: 2023

Chevrolet’s EV contender for the mass-market compact SUV competition will be the Equinox EV. It offers a choice of two battery sizes, and Chevy says range should be up to 300 miles. Front-wheel-drive models have a single motor putting out 210 hp; AWD versions have two motors with a combined output of 290 hp. The Equinox EV has a more typical SUV shape than many EVs, and Chevy says it has up to 57 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seats folded down. The interior is not futuristic but has the option of a 17.7-inch touchscreen. A limited launch version will arrive in late 2023; the full lineup will come in 2024. Chevy says pricing will start around $30,000.

Fisker Pear

Expected: 2024

This EV startup founded by designer Henrik Fisker plans to follow the 2023 Ocean with a second SUV called the Pear in 2024. The company describes the small Pear as an “agile city EV” that will be about 15 feet long and seat five. No other details have been revealed beyond a projected starting price of about $30,000.

Ford Explorer

Expected: 2025

Ford said as early as 2021 that an electric Explorer (and a Lincoln Aviator version) are coming. It’s been more recently reported that they will be built in Canada and that Ford has shown dealers a video teaser of the vehicle, but no other details are known.

GMC Hummer SUV

Expected: 2023

A two-row SUV version of the big GMC Hummer EV will join the pickup later in 2023. It uses the same off-road-capable, heavyweight Hummer platform, but it has a roughly 9-inch shorter wheelbase than the pickup and a power swing-out tailgate. Styling is just as in-your-face and features follow the pickup’s lead, including its four-wheel steering that can turn front and rear wheels in the opposite direction or the same way for the Hummer signature sideways CrabWalk. The SUV has removable roof panels and capability to use the truck battery to power external devices. Available is a three-motor GM Ultium powertrain that delivers up to 830 hp and up to 11,500 pounds-feet of torque.

Honda Prologue

Expected: 2024

Honda’s first EV will be the Prologue SUV developed jointly with GM and using GM’s Ultium battery system. Few details have been made available, but in the summer of 2022, Honda released a video showing a bit more of the coming SUV’s design. Pre-sales for the Prologue will begin sometime this year, with deliveries taking place in 2024.

Hyundai Ioniq 7

Expected: 2024

Hyundai’s third model for its Ioniq EV sub-brand will be a large three-row SUV. A concept version of the Ioniq 7 was shown in 2021, though it included many show-car design elements unlikely to show up in a production model.

Jeep Recon

Expected: 2024

Jeep says the Wrangler-size Recon will emphasize Trail Rated off-road capability with its drive system, tires and underbody protection. It will also have removable doors and glass, as well as a power-retractable top.

Jeep Wagoneer S

Expected: 2024

Jeep says this large SUV will have standard four-wheel drive, an estimated range up to 400 miles, 600 hp and a 0-60 mph time as low as 3.5 seconds.

Kia EV9

Expected: 2024

The Kia EV9 will be its version of corporate sibling Hyundai’s Ioniq 7 three-row SUV. A concept version was shown in 2021.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport EV

Expected: 2024

Land Rover’s redesigned third-generation 2023 Range Rover Sport brought styling tweaks, interior refinements, updated tech and new powertrains that include a plug-in hybrid version. The luxury SUV brand has announced that an EV version will join the line sometime in 2024, though specifications are still to come.

Lincoln Aviator EV

Expected: 2025

Ford’s Lincoln luxury brand has revealed an Aviator-size Star electric SUV concept and said it would launch three EVs globally by 2025, but we don’t know more yet beyond the concept. Ford had said as early as 2021 that an electric Aviator (as well as Explorer) was coming.

Lotus Eletre

Expected: 2024

This luxury SUV from Lotus is a high-performance hauler with three trim levels offering 603-905 hp in the configurations that are going on sale in Europe, the only region where it is now on sale, for north of $100,000. Lotus has said that other markets, including North America, will follow in 2024; pricing and specs for those markets is yet to be announced.

Lucid Gravity

Expected: 2024

Startup Lucid Motors says it will follow its luxury performance Air sedan with an SUV called the Gravity. It looks like an SUV version of the Air and is expected to share the same platform and powertrains; the Air offers up to 1,050 hp and is EPA-rated for up to 516 miles of range. Lucid says the SUV will offer two- and three-row configurations with seats for five, six or seven.

Maserati Grecale Folgore

Expected: 2024

The new 2023 Maserati Grecale luxury compact SUV just went on sale in the U.S. in gasoline and mild-hybrid forms, but the Stellantis brand already has said that an all-electric Folgore (Italian for “lightning” and Maserati’s designator for its EVs) version will follow in about a year. The design and features will mirror the other models, but the unspecified powertrain will include a 105-kW battery. Pricing for the Folgore version is yet to be announced.

Mercedes-EQ EQG

Expected: 2024

Mercedes has said for a while that its top-of-line G-Class SUV would get an electric version and  showed a Concept EQG that it called a “near-production study” for an electric G in 2021. More recently, Mercedes-Benz Board Chairman Ola Kallenius confirmed in an interview that EQG production will begin in 2024 at the company’s SUV plant in Alabama. Details are still to be revealed, but the concept rides on a unique platform, a version of the conventional G’s body-on-frame design, and it has four-wheel drive via a separate motor for each wheel. It’s not likely to be cheaper than the conventional G models, which range up to about $180,000.

Polestar 3

Expected: Late 2023

Polestar’s second EV will be an SUV that’s bigger than the current Polestar 2 sedan by a foot in length and 6 inches in height with a 9.8-inch longer wheelbase. The Polestar 3’s two-motor AWD powertrain offers 489 hp, though an $6,000 optional Performance Pack raises that to 517 hp. It has a 111-kilowatt-hour battery pack, and Polestar estimates range at a maximum of 300 miles. Air suspension is standard, as is DC fast charging with 240-kW capability. A novel safety feature is a Smart Eye driver-monitoring system that checks the driver’s head, neck and even eyelid movement for signs of distraction or drowsiness, and can warn the driver or even stop the vehicle. Pricing will start at about $85,000.

Polestar 4

Expected: Late 2023

Little is known so far about the Polestar 4 other than it is expected to be an “SUV coupe” companion to the 3 with a similar powertrain and a sportier fastback roofline — though Polestar so far has only shown a sheet-draped outline of its shape.

Porsche Macan EV

Expected: 2024

This will be the first Porsche EV to ride the new modular premium electric platform (aka PPE) that Porsche developed with fellow VW luxury brand Audi. The Macan EV will have a 100-kWh battery, a two-motor AWD system and an adaptive air suspension. Prototypes have been undergoing testing, and more details will come at a global reveal expected later in 2023 or in 2024.

VinFast VF6 and VF7

Expected: 2024

Following the rollout of its larger five-seat VF8 and seven-seat VF9 electric SUVs, Vietnamese automaker VinFast will continue its push to enter the U.S. market with smaller VF6 and VF7 five-seat SUVs. The VF6 offers only FWD in two trim levels with single motors putting out 174 or 201 hp. The VF7 is about a foot longer and will offer two versions: a single-motor FWD model will produce 201 hp and a two-motor AWD variant will have a combined output of 348 hp. U.S. range estimates and pricing have not been released.

Volvo EX90

Expected: 2024

Volvo’s largest EV will be the three-row, seven-seat EX90, an XC90 reimagined in all-electric form. It will feature two-motor AWD with output of 402 or 496 horsepower. The EX90 uses a 111-kW battery and will have DC fast-charging capability up to 250 kW, as well as capability to use the battery to power external devices. It also will have advanced driver-assistance tech and a full array of Volvo safety tech. Pricing has not been released, but Volvo says the EX90 will start at less than $80,000.

Sports Cars

maserati gran turismo folgore 2024 exterior oem 08 jpg 2024 Maserati GranTurismo Folgore | Manufacturer image

Maserati GranTurismo Folgore

Expected: Late 2023

After a hiatus since 2019, the stylish sports car from Maserati returns for the 2024 model year with an updated interior and tech and new powertrains, including a three-motor all-electric system with two motors on the rear axle and torque vectoring AWD. A 92.5-kW battery runs down the center of the vehicle rather than using the more common configuration under the floor and seats, allowing the car to sit lower than many EVs. A feature of the Folgore is that it will augment the sounds of the car through the speakers with the electronically synthesized sound of a Maserati V-8 engine. Expect pricing in the low six figures.

Polestar 6

Expected: 2026

Polestar has announced that it will roll out a Polestar 6 roadster in 2026 that follows closely the design of the O2 concept car. The hard-top convertible will feature two-motor AWD and a total power output of 884 hp. Polestar expects pricing to be about $200,000.

Tesla Roadster

Expected: 2024?

The much-anticipated (and much-delayed) reimagination of the original Roadster — one of which is still somewhere out in space — now is expected to begin deliveries in 2024 to patient folks who put down $50,000 to $250,000 for reservations. Initial claims for the Tesla halo car included a 0-60 mph time of 1.9 seconds and 620 miles of range, but production model specs still are to be announced.

Uber Luxury

Bentley SUV

Expected: 2025

The luxury brand has announced plans to be all-electric by 2030 and says that it will unveil an electric SUV by 2025.

Cadillac Celestiq

Expected: December 2023

Cadillac has released pre-production images of the new Celestiq, a high-end, high-performance fastback sedan that will be the luxury brand’s second EV after the 2023 Lyriq. The car has a futuristic design and a luxury interior with a massive 55-inch LED display. GM says it will be built in small batches with “custom-commissioned” personalization. Pricing reportedly might reach $300,000 or more.

Rolls-Royce Spectre

Expected: Late 2023

Rolls-Royce’s first EV will be a two-door car that it describes as a “spiritual successor” to its erstwhile Phantom coupe, and the family resemblance in Rolls images is strong — as the price will likely be (the last Phantom in 2016 was priced at about $450,000). Rolls promises the Spectre will be loaded with luxury details, advanced tech and have nearly 600 hp to move the big coupe with dignity.
