Electric Vehicle That’s Expected in the Next Five Years
Electric cars are the future, and each year we’ve seen automakers add more EVs to their lineup. Everyone is working on electric vehicles, from well-established existing manufacturers to new names such as Byton, Lordstown, and Rivian. We’ve compiled a list of every electric vehicle, from concept to production, that isn’t available yet but will be soon.
Aspark Owl (Expected: 2021)
The Aspart Owl hypercar is the first of what the Japanese EV maker promises will be a lineup of high-dollar hypercars. The Owl produces 1984 horsepower from four electric motors, what it claims is a unique torque-vectoring system, and a 64.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that Aspark promises will deliver 280 miles of driving range. The Owl’s claimed top speed is 249 mph, and it’ll cost $3.2 million. Production will be limited to 50 units worldwide, and deliveries will begin in mid-2020.
Audi A6 e-tron (Expected: 2022)
The Audi A6 e-tron is a concept for now, but Audi says it’s super close to what the production car will look like. It’s based on the scalable Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture that can be lengthened, lifted, and widened for a variety of different EV models. It will be sold alongside the gas powered A6 , and likely the first EV we’ll see on the PPE platform that underpins future electric Audis. The A6 e-tron concept uses two electric motors with a combined output of 469 horsepower. All PPE vehicles have 800-volt charging capability, and this big sedan could have as much as 400 miles of range on a single charge
BMW iX (Expected: 2023)
The iX is slated to go on sale by early 2022. Of course, Europe will get it before we do. It’s intended as a flagship for BMW’s expanded “i” family of electrified vehicles. BMW’s goals for the iX sound promising, an SUV with a combined output of 500 horsepower with 300 miles of range. BMW also said that it will support DC fast charging up to 200 kW. If you can find a charger that powerful, the iX should replenish its battery from 10 to 80 percent in under 40 minutes. The iX is roughly the same size as the current X5.
Chevrolet Silverado Electric (Expected: 2024)
Turns out the GMC Hummer EV and SUV were a little taste of what we’ll see from Chevy’s upcoming all-electric Silverado. They’ll be built under the same roof, and using GM’s Ultium battery pack, offering up to 400 miles on a single charge. Chevy told use earlier that it plans to offer its Silverado EV from work truck trim up to a fully-loaded pickup. Chevy hasn’t made clear when production will start, but if they wish to deliver on their promise of 30 new EVs by 2025 , we think the battery-powered Silverado will be here soon enough.
