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, 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 second 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.
Sharing its CMP platform with the Vauxhall Corsa and Peugeot 208, the 3 Crossback is the first fully electric DS model. UK deliveries are due to begin this month.
Designed as a direct rival for the Volvo XC40 and Audi Q2, the Crossback will focus on comfortable, high-end interiors, distinctive exterior styling inspired by the 7 Crossback, and an electric range of around 180 miles from a 50kWh lithium-ion battery. 0-62mph performance is estimated at 8.7 seconds, with a top speed of 93mph.
It might arrive as a five-door, rather than the three-door layout previewed by the well-received concept shown at 2017’s Frankfurt motor show, but the production version of Honda’s compact electric city car promises to retain its retro-inspired looks. The company even went back to the drawing board after the reveal to make sure the real thing stayed as true to the concept as possible.
The Urban EV will arrive on a unique new platform and deliver 136 miles of range. It is available in two performance variants, the base car delivering 134bhp and the more potent Advance variant having 152bhp. The brand's first European electric car has arrived in the UK ready for customer deliveries, with dimensions smaller than the Jazz, and prices starting from £26,560 including government grant.
