Keeping track of every new car and knowing when they’re due to go on sale can be tough, especially if you’re only interested in EVs.
There are so many due to arrive over the next twelve months, so it’s worth learning how long you’ll be waiting for the one you want to go on sale. 2019 will see major launches from well-known electric pioneers like Tesla, Nissan and Renault, as well as new entrants to the category from the likes of Audi, Mini, DS, Skoda and more.
The first half of 2020 looks to be even more stacked, as manufacturers work hard to meet increasingly tough emissions rules with the introduction of more all-electric models.
Here is our comprehensive list of what EVs are coming when in the car industry.
The latest version of BMW’s pure electric car may have only received a minor facelift in the six years it has been on sale, but it still looks every bit the modern machine, with dimensions and a spacious interior made possible by ditching petrol power for electric power.
For 2019, BMW has scrapped the combustion engine altogether, removing the range extender model from sale in favour of a larger capacity battery. The new 120Ah lithium-ion battery will apparently deliver 193 miles between charges, a 30% improvement over the old version. The more potent i3S should manage 177 miles between top-ups.
Revealed in late 2018 and already tested on roads in the UAE, Audi’s first electric SUV will arrive in the UK in early 2019 to take on the Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X. It is a premium model, with options like virtual wingmirrors that use cameras and small digital displays instead of glass, and promises 402bhp from its two electric motors. In Boost mode, it will achieve a 0-62mph sprint time of 5.7 seconds, and on to an electronically limited top speed of 124mph. Range is estimated at 249 miles on the WLTP cycle.
