Electric Vehicles in 2023 and Beyond
The following much anticipated all-electric vehicles are on the drawing boards and some are in pre-production. While little is known about these future cars, you can bet that GreenCars will be on hand to serve you the latest dish on them. Once again, we provide them in alphabetical order by automaker.

Ranges and rates are manufacturer estimates. Actual mileage and charge times may vary.
Audi A6 e-tron
Coming in 2023, the arousing A6 e-tron will be sold alongside its gasoline equivalent brother in showrooms. This four-door luxury sedan will feature cutting-edge tech including incredibly fast charging times. Prices will start in the $80,000 MSRP zone.
Following in the tread marks of the forward-thinking Lyriq sedan, the new Celestig is to be a range-topper SUV hatchback for Caddy, but don’t expect to see it until 2025. The automaker says that range will be at lease 300 miles on a charge.
Canoo Pickup Truck
We’ve been waiting to see a production model of this “Lost in Space” pickup from start-up company Canoo for a while. The cab forward trend-setter will be available in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive which is said to deliver 600-horses and 550-pound feet of torque. Driving range will be around 200 miles and Canoo says it will be available sometime in 2023.
Chevrolet Silverado Electric
Not exactly hot on the heels of the best-selling Ford Lightning EV pickup, Chevy will debut the Silverado Electric in late 2023. It will offer four-wheel steering like the Hummer with standard all-wheel drive and up to 664-horsepower. Chevrolet estimates the vehicle's range to be a whopping 400 miles.
Though still a product of the rumor mill, there is speculation that Chevy is developing an eighth-generation, 200 miles per hour electric Corvette. However, this “E-Ray” may be a hybrid with two electric motors and a 6.2-liter V8 gas engine. Time will tell.
Due to light up American highways in 2024, Dodge is working on an all-electric burnout brute. Little is known about this Challenger-inspired Hellcat, but you can bet it will be crazy fast off the line.
Ford Explorer Electric
The next all-electric Ford may be the Explorer. After all, it is America’s best-selling three-row SUV. It’s all part of making 40 percent of Ford’s lineup EVs by 2030. Expect the new Explorer to be available by 2024.
Jeep Wrangler EV
Teased as a concept vehicle last year, the “Magneto” had four battery packs and looked like a standard Wrangler. Insiders say the production model will offer standard rear-wheel drive or dual motor all-wheel drive and one battery pack. Expect a starting price of around $50,000 MSRP when the new EV appears in 2024.
Kia’s all-new three-row, all-electric SUV will begin production in mid-2023 for American sales in 2024. With ample passenger and cargo space, the EV9 is estimated by Kia to have a range of 300 miles and a DC Fast Charging time to 80 percent in 20 minutes. All-wheel drive will be an available option.
Lexus EV Supercar
Little is known about when we might expect to see the supercar that Lexus calls an “electrified sport”, but the automaker tells us it will have a zero to 60 mph time in the “low two second” range and will take you 435 miles on a charge on its sold state batteries.
An amped up all-electric version of Mercedes’ boxy off-roader is coming but nobody knows exactly when. Our money is on 2024. The all-terrain EV will sport a motor at each wheel and sophisticated independent front suspension. Expect the EQG to retail at around $150,000 MSRP.
California start-up Mullen hopes to deliver its Mullen Five compact SUV by mid-2024. The company tells us that it will have a range of 325 miles and that the dual motor, all-wheel drive version will take you from zero to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. Suggested MSRP is $55,000.
This crisp and clean luxury GT sedan is predicted to offer a range of 600 miles. So long, range anxiety! The Polestar 5 will replace the limited production Polestar 1 sports coupe and will offer an efficient and very fast luxury package. It will launch in 2024 with a price tag north of $100,000 MSRP.
Sony Vision-S 02
Word has it that Sony, through an alliance with Honda, will produce its Vision-S 02 seven-passenger SUV for delivery in 2025. The all-electric crossover will go head-to-head with the Tesla Model Y. The dual motor Vision-S 2 is said to produce 536-horsepower and new autonomous driving capability. No word yet on a delivery date or pricing.
Tesla Cybertruck and Roadster
Fresh from some dystopian sci-fi flick, the Cybertruck has been earmarked for production in late 2023. You can reserve one now for a $100 deposit. The all-wheel drive truck is said to be able to tow 14,000 pounds. We’re more excited about the new Tesla Roadster coming in 2024 with its zero to 60 time of under three seconds.
Of all the coming EVs, this one is a favorite. The ID.Buzz is an all-electric minivan with more than a nod to the VW Microbus of old. A long-wheelbase version will arrive in America in 2024.
Coming for 2026, the Trinity will include such amazing tech as Level 4 autonomous travel in a vehicle that VW says will bring you “high range, extremely short charging times, and revolutionary production.”
