Keeping track of new cars 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, so it’s worth discovering how long you’ll be waiting for the one you want to go on sale.
2020 produced an influx of major new models from mainstream manufacturers, including the Volkswagen ID 3, Honda E and Vauxhall Corsa-e, despite an ongoing global health emergency, as well as the first models from new brands, such as the Polestar 2. 2021 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's our comprehensive list of what EVs are coming when in the car industry.
Another casualty of the ongoing pandemic, the more practical version of Porsche’s first EV was originally set to arrive towards the end of 2020 but wasn’t revealed until early March this year. The first deliveries of the estate-esque Taycan are set to take place in the summer.
The extended roofline affords rear passengers an extra 47mm of headroom, with boot space increasing too. Prices start from £79,340 for the Taycan 4 Cross Turismo, which uses a rear-mounted electric motor producing 375bhp: 0-62mph takes 5.1sec, with a top speed of 137mph.
At the other end of the scale is the Turbo S, which costs £139,910 and can hit 0-62mph in 2.9sec thanks to its launch mode setting and the small matter of 751bhp. Meanwhile, the mid-spec 4S costs £87,820 and the Turbo model is priced at £116,950.
A surprise announcement at 2018's Los Angeles motor show, despite the company behind it having been first formed in 2009, the Rivian R1T is a pick-up truck reimagined for an EV generation. It has clever packaging that makes the most of available space, while the underlying powertrain promises to deliver as much as 754bhp and a 0-60mph time of under three seconds.
The R1T was set to go into production in late 2020, but first deliveries in the US have been delayed until June 2021. UK buyers will likely have to wait a little longer still to get their hands on one.
