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 course of the next twelve months, in spite of the ongoing global health emergency, so it’s worth learning how long you’ll be waiting for the one you want to go on sale. 2019 saw new entrants to the category from the likes of Audi, Mercedes and MG, with major launches from well-known electric pioneers such as Tesla, Nissan and Renault all following soon after.
The final few months of 2020 and early 2021 look 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 coupe-styled version of Audi's first dedicated EV arrives in the UK this month, carrying a price premium over the regular E-tron as well as several mechanical upgrades that promise a slightly improved electric range over the SUV.
It will be joined by a pair of Audi's first electric performance models. The E-tron S duo use three electric motors, becoming one of the first production cars to do so, producing 496bhp.
The UK's first affordable electric estate car will make its official debut shortly, sitting alongside the ZS EV crossover in MG's growing range of zero-emissions models. The MG 5 is understood to be a reengineered version of the China-only Roewe Ei5, and should deliver 214 miles of range from a 52.5kWh battery pack.
Cost will be the 5's strongest selling point, with the estate expected to arrive at a similar price to the ZS EV - undercutting many smaller electric models from European and Japanese rivals.
Designed and built as a pure electric car, the ID hatchback is a crucial launch for VW. It closely matches the Golf hatchback in size, with limited-run First Edition models retailing from £38,880. Eventually more entry-level models will be sold at a price closer to that of a Golf diesel, roughly £27,000.
Built on the modular MEB platform, the ID 3 offers a variety of battery options for a range of between 249 and 373 miles between charges. The final design largely remains true to the original concept, which was first revealed in 2016 and went on to inspire several other ID models, which are all due to launch over the next five years.
