It’s the time again when the Available and Future EV List needs to get updated. Since the last update in May, there have been considerable changes. As electric vehicles (EVs) become more and more popular, it is safe to say that this pattern will hold true for many years.
In fact, not only are there new EVs on the table, but there are a lot of spec changes to existing models. After about four to five years, manufacturers refresh their lineup with new styling, performance, features, and price points. As such, the modern EV has been on the road for over 10 years now. Therefore, there are a few models that have passed the test of time and are receiving these incremental improvements.
Most notably, new future electric cars have been added to the table such as the Lucid Air, Lucid Unnamed SUV, and Kia Sorento PHEV. The Lucid Air aims to rival the Tesla Model S as the complete halo electric car.
On the other hand, the Kia Sorento PHEV will market towards family haulers with its third row seating. As a PHEV, the Kia Sorento will be a great first-time EV for many shoppers looking to make the slow switch to electric. Pricing, performance, and availability are still to be determined.
Nostable updates include changes across both the Volvo and Tesla EV lineup as well as the GMC Hummer EV.
For Volvo, beginning in 2020, all EVs (whether BEV or PHEV) now have a surname of “Recharge”. For example, the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine Hybrid is now just called the XC90 Recharge.
While this new branding effort aims to simplify things, it does, however, not make it clear if a model with the Recharge surname is an all-electric car or a plug-in hybrid.
With Tesla, they have completely updated their pricing and performance across nearly every vehicle they have for sale. In particular, the Model S received a multi-thousand dollar price cut. The Model 3 and Y received around a 15% boost in range.
Altogether, all of Tesla’s products are even more attractive than they were before. With these updates, Tesla yet again remains years ahead of any competition.
Lastly, the GMC Hummer EV was recently unveiled. The debuted all-electric super truck will have a price point of $72,500-105,100 and a range of 250-350+ miles. The Hummer EV falls in the approximate price range of the Rivian R1T, however, the Tesla Cybertruck starts at over $30,000 cheaper.
It is clear the all-electric truck war has begun and so far Tesla is in the lead. The last major electric truck to make a reveal is the Ford F-150 EV. Ford should debut their electric truck sometime at the end of this year or the beginning of next year.
