Over the course of the year, we’ve listed all of the biggest model launches for 2023. But now there's just one month left.
Below are the final few new models that you can expect to see in a showroom near you before you will need to switch to our new cars of 2024 article – or, if you would like to see the cars coming from 2025 and beyond, read our future cars piece.
This Tesla Model 3 rival is set to arrive in the UK before the end of the year as part of Chinese firm BYD’s bid for a slice of the burgeoning electric car market. It’s priced from £44,990, which nets you a single-motor model with lots of kit, 308bhp and a range of 354 miles.

Lexus has responded to the burgeoning popularity of luxury minivans – many imported from Japan – by bringing the next-generation LM to the UK. In four-seat configuration, it effectively serves as a mobile executive lounge, with two massaging thrones in the back facing a whopping 48in screen.

Volkswagen ID 7
Volkswagen’s answer to the Tesla Model S will arrive later this year, priced from around £50,000. That nets you a 77kWh battery pack that, combined with an efficient new rear motor producing 282bhp, gives a range of 382 miles. Deliveries are expected to begin in December, following production delays as Volkswagen scaled back EV production.

Just as important as the Mini, its BMW Group stablemate – albeit much more exclusive and, ahem, a touch heftier – is the third EV to enter series production in the UK: the Rolls-Royce Spectre. Tipping the scales at a hair under three tonnes but capable of matching a Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 to 62mph, this 577bhp coupé promises to be one of the most beguiling and technologically impressive cars of the modern era. It draws its energy from a mammoth 120kWh battery, good for a claimed 323 miles between charges. It’s also one of the most aero-efficient cars around and the stiffest car the firm has put into production so far. The most advanced Rolls-Royce since FAB 1? It should well be, given its £275,000 price.
