Tesla delivered the first Cybertrucks in 2023, after years of anticipation. It remains to be seen if the development quality issues have been resolved, but the truck has been successfully delivered to select customers, eliminating the need to include it in our annual guide.

Tesla is currently facing challenges, including recalling nearly all US-sold EVs to fix an Autopilot fault and competing with Chinese brands. Despite slowing global sales growth, China’s BYD Auto is expected to surpass Tesla in sales volume and lead globally.

The quantity of EVs in 2024 demonstrates that traditional automakers are producing more all-electric vehicles. We hope future car designs will utilize electric architecture to promote inclusivity and reduce machismo.

Here are some EVs coming in 2024.

Kia EV3

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

The electric compact SUV EV3, first shown as a concept last year, will make its production debut in 2024. Expectations are high for a functional and “joyful to drive” Kia, which, predictably, looks like a shrunken EV9 from last year’s lineup. Kia is planning to release a slew of compact electric vehicles (EVs) priced between $35,000 and $50,000, similar to the EV3. In keeping with the EV9, the EV3 features a pushed-forward windshield and strong, squared-off wheel arches with asymmetrical cuts. A detached C pillar gives the impression that the roof is floating. Indoors, you should find eco-friendly furnishings and mini tables that can be adjusted in height, angle, and position. When not in use, the rear bench seat can be folded up to make room for larger items like bicycles and electric scooters.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 N

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

The fact that we liked the “original” Ioniq 5 from 2021 and are big admirers of Hyundai’s current design direction is no secret. Some parts of the 5 may not hold up as well as expected, though; for example, the flared wheel arches and the sharp center of the front bumper. The fact that this update, which will be released in 2024 under the name Ioniq 5 N, tempers those early design hopes is encouraging. Finally, there’s the performance improvement: If you prefer to go sideways, you can maintain slide angles with the aid of drift technology, and the N Grin Boost button unleashes torque and power up to 478 kW/650 PS. Additional embellishments consist of bucket seats that are 20 mm lower than the standard specification, a lip spoiler that spans the lower portion of the front bumper, and a rear diffuser adorned with “eye-catching” glowing orange accents.

Hyundai Ioniq 7

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

Now that Kia’s EV9 is here, Hyundai’s next large eSUV, the Ioniq 7, has been spotted in the wild before its 2024 debut. Expect good range and built-in autonomous driving. The brilliant Ioniq 6 is most likely what will inspire the interior. While both are based on the same E-GMP platform, the Ioniq 7 has a steeply-raked windscreen and a sloping roofline at the back, unlike the boxy Kia EV9. A 99.8-kWh battery powers the UK EV9’s 201-bhp or 379-bhp dual-motor. Expect the Ioniq 7 to go nearly 350 miles on a charge, like the EV9. Its excellent 800-volt charging system will charge 10 to 80% in under 25 minutes. The Ioniq 7 may be the last Hyundai Group model to use E-GMP. The first eM and eS EVs will debut in 2025. The eM will support Level 3 autonomous driving and have a 50% range increase per charge. It will use the group’s “Integrated Modular Architecture” to standardize battery and motor components. The eS is an EV platform for ride-pooling, cargo-hauling, and delivery vehicles.

Range Rover Electric

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

After much delay, Land Rover has set 2024 as the production year for the fully electric Range Rover. You can rest assured that the company is not wasting any time building on its 50-plus-year history of dominating anything off-road; on-road testing has already started in a variety of conditions, including -40 degrees Celsius in Sweden and 50 degrees Celsius in Dubai. The all-electric Range Rover, like the present-day Hyundais and Kias, will feature an 800-volt architecture for quick charging. You can also anticipate a substantial range, close to 400 miles. The electric powertrain ensures it will be incredibly silent, and it will be even quieter with the active noise cancellation system. People who are impatient and can’t wait for reviews can place their orders now.

Ford Explorer

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

After a six-month delay due to battery issues, the Explorer crossover will finally touch down in the summer of 2024. It is expected to share the same battery and motor options as the other ID. models, meaning it will use Volkswagen’s MEB platform. This means it will have 52-kWh or 77-kWh numbers that can go up to 335 miles and between 201 and 335 bhp. At the moment, this electric vehicle is only available in the European Union (EU), but that could change if demand increases; it was designed in the US but assembled at the brand-new Ford Cologne EV Center in Germany. You can go from zero to eighty percent charge in twenty-five minutes with the two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive variants. Another plus is the roomy cabin, which features a soundbar that spans the entire dashboard.

Polestar 4

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

The Polestar 4 is a unique SUV coupé. Polestar eliminated the rear window, as shown on the rear. With a 102-kWh battery and 350-mile range (WLTP), the most powerful dual-motor 4 is the most powerful Polestar yet. 272 bhp and 372 miles (WLTP) are claimed for the long-range single car. Bidirectional charging and vehicle-to-load allow you to power small appliances with the car’s battery. The brand relies on the high-definition screen that replaces the rear-view mirror instead of the rear glass. A real-time roof-mounted rear camera feed supposedly provides a wider view. Although Range Rover has been using its ClearSight camera mirror for years, Polestar is the first to fully embrace its design potential. The reason? Improved aerodynamics: The 4’s 0.26 drag is slippery.

Porsche Macan EV

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

The all-electric Macan will make its debut in 2024 after a long wait beginning with the 2019 Taycan. (The 718 Boxster and Cayman, which are planned to be entirely electric, will be delayed for a bit longer, though.) Built specifically for the new powertrain, Porsche’s second electric vehicle is expected to match the brand’s usual speed with a 100 kWh battery good for at least 310 miles of range and a two-motor setup producing up to 603 bhp. Powertrain features, including intelligent routing and real-time information about public fast-charging locations, are ostensibly better integrated into the new Porsche user interface, which is operated by a primary 12.3-inch touchscreen located inside the vehicle.

Audi Q6 e-tron

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

Using the same next-gen EV platform as the aforementioned Macan EV, Audi’s new eSUV fills the gap between the Q4 and Q8 e-tron models. This platform is known as the Premium Platform Electric (PPE). It uses a 93.0-kWh battery that uses prismatic lithium-ion cells to increase the energy density, has new electric motors, and follows the 800-volt architecture of previous Kias and Hyundais. The Q6’s claimed 0-60 time is under six seconds (and the SQ6’s is 4.5 seconds), which is supposedly achieved by combining the front unit’s acceleration and traction with the rear unit’s primary powerhouse. We’re crossing our fingers that the prototype’s headlamp technology lives on in the final product. It can project both text and videos. I’m hoping for the best.

Nimbus One

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

Its slogan, “Your three-wheeled chariot awaits,” describes this agile two-seater city EV. Not only does the sub-$10,000 vehicle look like a blast to drive, but it also boasts some seriously impressive specs: 0–30 mph in 3 seconds, 93 miles of range, 370 miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent, front airbags, anti-lock brakes, adaptive cruise control, a steel frame, and a swappable 9-kWh battery that can be charged in just 5.4 hours using a standard household outlet. The One version of the Nimbus will reach a top speed of 50 mph, while the One S version will reach a top speed of 75 mph. The true advantage, though, is that the Nimbus is perfect for gliding through traffic thanks to its slim three-wheel design, which is as narrow as a motorbike and stays balanced by leaning into turns.

BMW i4 2024

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

German carmaker BMW has reaped the rewards with the i4’s success. However, a refresh in 2024 is on the horizon, so things will improve slightly. It appeared to be getting little of an exterior redesign, despite being camouflaged when spotted being test-driven; the grille stays put with the radar off to one side, the bumper design seems mostly unchanged, but the headlights have a new LED signature. There will likely be new taillights and a redesigned rear bumper. In addition to the new iDrive 9 infotainment system, BMW is expected to improve the current i4’s range, which is 365 miles with an 80 kWh battery. The Model 3 Long Range’s 391 miles, however, surpass this.

Lotus Emeya

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

Lotus has released its first hyper-GT, the Etre, to compete with the Porsche Taycan; we thought the SUV was excellent. After the Eletre and the much-postponed Evija hypercar, the British brand will launch its third electric model, the four-door EV, in 2024. According to reports, the top-tier model with active aero and adaptive air suspension will reportedly produce 893 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in an impressive 2.8 seconds. Allegedly, Lotus will install a 102-kWh battery pack that can be charged to 80 percent capacity in 18 minutes using 350 kW of power. The maximum distance that the Emeya is expected to travel on a single charge is approximately 315 miles, as Lotus has stated that it can drive from Amsterdam to Paris.

BYD Seal U

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

This fourth model joins BYD’s UK lineup in early 2024, extending its global EV dominance. The Tang, the brand’s larger seven-seater, is only available in left-hand drive, so the Seal U will be the first UK SUV. The Seal saloon uses BYD’s e-Platform 3.0 and is electric only, while the Seal U is a Chinese car with a plug-in hybrid or pure electric option. The Seal U, a midsize electric SUV, will compete with the Volkswagen ID.4 and Ford Explorer and have 71 kWh and 87 kWh batteries, respectively. With 218-bhp electric motors, the smaller should have 261 miles of range and the larger 311. From 30 to 80%, the 71-kWh model should charge in 28 minutes.

Volvo EX30

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

Volvo aims to draw attention to its 2024 “value” EV, aimed at attracting new customers, rather than the delayed release of its seven-seat electric EX90 due to software development. Three versions of the entry-level EX30 are available: 51 kWh, 69 kWh, and a performance twin-motor 69 kWh. As it runs on Geely’s smallest Sustainable Experience Architecture, it shares specs with Smart #1 and Zeekr X. In our review, we noted that the top model, with an NMC battery, twin motor, and all-wheel-drive, produces 315 kW (428 hp) and reaches 62 mph in a staggering 3.6 seconds. This is Volvo’s “fastest accelerating car ever,” which is unnecessary for this market segment and feels like corporate posturing.

Although BYD has made significant progress in the West, other Chinese automakers are also making waves in 2024. Their releases may be more significant as their innovations and technological advancements impact EVs in the EU and US. Get a quick roadmap from Inside China Auto’s Mark Rainford.

Li Auto Mega

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

The Mega is Li Auto’s take on an all-purpose vehicle that prioritizes aerodynamics while still offering third-row passengers the legroom of a German saloon. Featuring the latest NOA system, which includes city-wide self-driving and “valet parking” (you exit at the parking entrance, and the car supposedly finds a space on its own and can be summoned later), the company’s first fully electric car can charge 500 km in 12 minutes. However, it will be at least 2025 before exports are anticipated.

Luxeed S7

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

Huawei and Chery collaborated on the production of a vehicle that will compete head-on with Tesla’s luxury Model S. The Harmony OS is integrated with a top-notch autonomous driving system that can navigate urban areas without human intervention. Not because the car can’t drive itself; the requirement to maintain a hand on the wheel is a result of Chinese regulation. According to the CLTC testing standard, your range can reach up to 855 km, which is closer to 371 miles. Plus, a 215-kilometer charge is yours in just 5 minutes. Chery is the biggest auto exporter in China, so it’s likely the S7 will be arriving soon. However, there has been no official word on exports.

Xiaomi SU7

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

There is a lack of information about this electric vehicle (EV) at the moment, but it is intriguing given Xiaomi’s history with smartphones and smart home devices. The company will be competing with Huawei’s cars, although with less expertise in the industry. Rumor has it that there will be two different powertrain options: one with rear-wheel drive and 220 kW (295 hp; 299 PS) of output, and another with all-wheel drive and 495 kW (664 hp; 673 PS). Both the standard and all-wheel drive versions have limited top speeds of 130 and 165 mph, respectively.

XPeng G6

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

This outstanding electric vehicle debuted in China in June 2023, but it won’t be available in all Western European markets until 2024. While the G9 was fantastic, the G6 is more compact and offers two drive options: a rear-wheel drive model with 296 horsepower (221 kW) and an all-wheel drive model with 480 horsepower (360 kW). A larger battery can hold 87.5 kWh, while the basic one can only hold 66 kWh. At the launch, XPeng announced that the G6 had a rapid charging capability that, with the help of the brand’s new modular SEPA 2.0 platform, could add 300 kilometers to the range in as little as 10 minutes.

JiYue ROBO-02

18 Top EVs Arriving in 2024

The second vehicle to be produced by the joint venture between Geely and Baidu is the JiYue (or “Jidu”) ROBO-1. Unlike Baidu’s robotaxi services, which include Level 4 self-driving technology, this one isn’t officially confirmed, but it should include a significant portion of Baidu’s vast self-driving capability. We may be looking at an 800-volt electric system, 400 kW of power, and a gigantic central screen, all of which are expected to be built on Geely’s remarkable SEA architecture.
