Click on the links below to see new cars from each brand that’ll arrive in the next few years

New Audi A6 e-tron

Most of Audi’s electric cars so far have been SUVs, but the new A6 e-tron concept you see here shows it’ll also launch a new electric saloon as an alternative to the Tesla Model S and Mercedes EQE.

The A6 e-tron should retain the concept’s sleek styling and 435 miles of range when it goes on sale in 2023.

New Audi Q6 e-tron

Expect to see the Q6 e-tron looking something quite like this when it arrives in 2023

If the Q4 e-tron is a shade too small for you, then the Audi Q6 e-tron could be just the thing. Official details are still thin on the ground, but the Q6 e-tron’s extra size means it’ll likely have larger batteries giving it closer to 400 miles of range.

It won’t be long until all is revealed – Audi says the Q6 e-tron is going into production in 2022.

New BMW i3 (electric 3 Series)

Plug-in hybrid versions of the popular BMW 3 Series have been available for some time and now there’s a full-electric model in the works that could be called i3.

It’s expected to use the same battery pack and 286hp electric motor as the iX3 electric SUV making it compatible with 150kW fast chargers and giving it around 285 miles of range. There’s also the potential for a high-performance version that could share the i4 M50‘s 530hp motors.

New BMW i5

When the new BMW 5 Series is revealed in 2022 it will be available for the first time as a fully electric car.

Badged the i5, it’s expected to share its tech with the BMW iX3 and i4 Gran Coupe. It should have around 400 miles of range to meet Audi’s upcoming A6 e-tron head-on.

New BMW i7

The BMW i7 is the 7 Series saloon’s electric twin brother. It’s been spotted out testing despite not being officially confirmed yet – but it’s expected to be announced in 2022. It will have a range of around 380 miles.

New BMW iX1

The current BMW X1 is due to be replaced by a brand-new version sometime in 2022. As part of its evolution, the X1 will be available for the first time with the option of fully electric power.

Not much else is known about this ‘iX1’ for now, but don’t be surprised if it ends up having a range of around 250 miles and shares a lot of tech with the bigger BMW iX3.

New Cupra Born

The VW ID.3 electric car is set to get a sporty sibling in the form of the new Cupra Born. It features funky styling that sets it apart from its VW sibling, plus up to 231hp from its electric motor and up to 355 miles of range on a full charge.

There will be different battery options, so cheaper models won’t have as much range or power. The Cupra Born is due to go on sale in early 2022 and will set you back from £33,735.

New Cupra Tavascan

One of the star cars at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Cupra Tavascan concept car, has now been greenlit for production.

It’s still some way off (Cupra says it won’t go on sale until around 2024), though it’s promised the Tavascan will look very similar to the design study that previewed it. That means it should be striking to look at inside and out, have a punchy electric drivetrain and have around 300 miles of range.

New Dacia Spring Electric

Dacia’s first all-electric model is set to launch across Europe late this year, which means it could — possibly — come to the UK in early 2022, with a 140-mile range, and a potential price tag as low as £10,000.

Dacia is yet to announce if the Spring will go on sale in the UK, but that decision is set to be made by the end of January 2022.

Fiat Centoventi (New Panda)

Fiat has plans to launch an all-new electric compact model in 2022, sharing the platform used by the new 500e but with a bigger body and more cabin and luggage space.

Will Fiat also launch it with battery packs that can be added to on-demand for longer journeys? And will it be called Panda? Watch this space…

New Genesis GV60

This new coupe-SUV is the first all-electric car to come from Genesis. It’s set to have 280 miles of range and the entry level model will have 228hp.

The GV60 is set to go on sale in 2022 over in the USA, however there’s no word on when it will arrive in Europe.

New Hyundai Ioniq 6

The Hyundai Prophecy concept was more than just a pretty face – it showed us how a future all-electric car called the Ioniq 6 could look when it comes out in the coming years. There’s no grille – the electric motors don’t need one – and the car is low, sleek and sporty.

Self-driving tech features too, although expect the road car to be toned down slightly. It’s predicted that the Hyundai Ioniq 6 will have around 300 miles of range when it goes on sale in 2023.

New Hyundai Ioniq 7

The Hyundai Seven concept gave us a preview of what the new Ioniq 7 may look like when it goes into production in 2024. The new large SUV is predicted to have 300 miles of range, dual motors and radical new self-driving technology.

Expect the concept’s wild design to be reined in slightly when the finished car arrives in showrooms before 2025.

New Kia EV9

Kia has revealed a concept version of the new EV9 large SUV. It offers an electric alternative to the Sorento and it could potentially borrow electric components from the smaller EV6. This would mean a 77.4 kWh battery giving up to 300 miles of range, along with dual motors.

The concept (above) looks very different from today’s Kia range, with bold angles and plenty of complex details. However, you can expect the production version to look a little more subtle.

New Lamborghini EV GT

A new electric car from Lamborghini is likely to arrive around 2025, and it could use a four-door design for added practicality.

It’ll likely be based on the Porsche Taycan EV underpinnings, which means more than 300 miles of range, 0-620mph in around 2 seconds and a price around £170,000. It’ll feature dramatic styling, of course – it’s a Lamborghini after all – and an equally brash interior look.

New Mercedes EQG

Mercedes has filed a trademark for the EQG name, and going by the rest of its EV range, this means it’s considering an electric version of the G-Class off-roader. It’s likely to use the technology from the EQS underneath, but with tweaks to make it better for off-roading, plus a distinctive look that will move the G-Class style on but also look back at the classic models – as this exclusive rendering shows.

It should have around 400 miles of range and may be revealed in 2022.

New Mercedes EQS SUV

This exclusive rendering shows what the new Mercedes EQS SUV could look like

As the name suggests, this is the SUV version of Mercedes’ EQS electric car. Top-spec models will feature four-wheel drive and a 100kWh battery pack, giving them more than 400 miles of range.

The EQS SUV will likely be compatible with the latest 350kW fast chargers, which can add 350 miles of range in just 20 minutes. Expect to pay at least £100,000 when it goes on sale as early as 2022.

New Nissan Ariya

The Nissan Ariya is an electric-only SUV that features dramatic styling, a minimalist interior and an impressive all-electric range of between 211 and 310 miles depending on which version you choose.

The less-powerful single-motor models will of course be cheaper, though prices haven’t been confirmed yet. It’ll go on sale in early 2022 and is packed with Nissan’s latest autonomous driving and safety tech.

New Polestar Precept

The Polestar Precept is a sporty looking four-door coupe, similar to the Porsche Taycan.

The Polestar Precept was originally intended to show how new Polestar cars would look rather than pointing to one specific model, but the reaction to the concept car was so good that the brand has decided to launch a production version.

It’s set to be called the Polestar 5 and may offer around 310 miles of range when it officially breaks cover in 2024.

New Polestar 3 electric SUV

The Polestar 3 is the Swedish firm’s third car to be released and it will be an alternative to the Audi e-tron and BMW iX. It’s predicted to have around 300 miles of range from the same battery pack you’ll find in the Polestar 2.

While not much of the design has been revealed, it appears to have a boxy shape and a tapered roofline at the rear. Expect to see it officially revealed in 2022.

New Porsche Macan EV

A new version of the Porsche Macan SUV is on the way and it’ll use electric motors rather than petrol or diesel engines. Official teaser images show the car will likely use a similar design to the current Macan, but will take on the BMW iX3 and Mercedes EQC when it arrives in 2023.

Expect impressive range – perhaps 400 miles – and excellent rapid charging capability. It’s possible this car will share tech with the Audi A6 e-tron.

New Renault Megane eVision

The new Renault Megane was revealed in 2021, and it will drop all petrol and diesel engine options in favour of electric power. It will have two battery options , 40kWh and 60kWh, and will have between 186 and 292 miles of range depending on which you go for.

Using a 130kW fast charger, a 0-80% charge takes half an hour. The new Megane is expected to go on sale in 2022 and it should cost from around £35,000.

New Renault 5

Already seen in concept form, Renault has promised that the all-electric revival of the 5 badge will go into production in 2022, and it should have a decent range thanks to sharing underpinnings with the Renault Zoe.

Better yet, there’s a sporty Alpine version to follow. Hopefully it looks as good as the concept…

New Rolls Royce Spectre EV

Rolls Royce has teased its first ever fully electric car, the Spectre. Based on the Phantom, Ghost and Cullinan, it’s going to be a two-door luxury coupe, similar to the Wraith. It’s expected to go on sale in 2023, with Rolls Royce aiming to have an electric-only range of cars by 2030.

Read more about the Rolls Royce Spectre here.

New Smart EV SUV

Smart has revealed a new electric SUV, following teaser images in late 2021. The car’s likely to arrive in 2023 in production form, and will have a range of between 200 and 300 miles plus rapid charging tech for quick top-ups.

Expect to see recognisable design cues from the Smart range but with a more rugged SUV-like shape. It’s likely to be a similar size to a Mini Countryman, so while it’ll be more practical than other Smart models, it’s still going to be a small car.


New Subaru Solterra

The Subaru Solterra will be the Japanese car maker’s first all-electric car, and it’s being made in conjunction with the Toyota bZ4X. This means it will be available with front and all-wheel-drive, with power ranging between 201hp and 215hp. The front-wheel-drive Solterra will have 329 miles of range with the all-wheel-drive version managing 285 miles.

The Solterra is due to go on sale in 2022, with prices predicted to start at the £40,000 mark.

New Toyota bz4X

An array of electric Toyotas is due in the coming years, and the first car from that batch will be a production version of the bZ4X Concept you see here.

This electric SUV is due to hit UK showrooms in 2022 and will cost from £41,950. It has over 280 miles of range and will be available with front- or all-wheel drive.

New VW ID3 Cabriolet

This official teaser image shows you what to expect from a new ID3 Cabriolet

Volkswagen has teased images of a new convertible ID3 Cabriolet electric car. If this EV soft-top reaches production, expect it to come with a similar range of battery and motor options as the standard hard-top ID3.

New VW ID3 R

A future ID3 R electric hot hatch could look like this exclusive render

As well as a new Cabriolet version, you might soon be able to get the Volkswagen ID3 as a high-performance R model. VW revealed a concept car called the IDX recently with a 333hp electric motor that delivers 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds. If it comes to fruition it could cost around £50,000 and is likely to appear in 2023.

New VW ID6

The Volkswagen ID range was kicked off by the ID3, a VW Golf-sized electric car. Now, Volkswagen will press ahead with the rest of the all-electric range, and that includes this, the ID6.

It’s a seven-seater family car with a range of 200-300 miles and will go on sale in 2022. It’s likely to have similar design features to the ID3 and ID4 models, but scaled up to fit on this larger car that will be a similar size to the brand’s Touareg.

New VW ID. Buzz

Volkswagen’s battery van is getting ever closer to production, and the good news is that a stylish, passenger-friendly MPV version is still on the cards. It will have a range of up to 342 miles, even with a bigger, boxier body and will share a lot of its interior with the ID3 hatchback.

Volkswagen has confirmed that it will be revealed on the 9th of March 2022.

New Volvo C40 Recharge

Volvo has lopped some bodywork off the back of the popular XC40 to create the C40 Recharge, an SUV-coupe that goes on sale shortly, and which will be available only as an EV. It’ll be sold only through Volvo’s own website, and costs from £57,400, with a range of 261-miles.

Best new petrol and diesel cars coming soon

Click on the links below to see new petrol- and diesel-powered cars from each brand that’ll arrive before 2022.

Alfa Romeo Tonale SUV

The Alfa Romeo Tonale is a compact SUV that’s smaller than the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and an alternative to the likes of the BMW X1 and Audi Q3.

The Tonale will also likely retain the plug-in hybrid engine and most of the styling cues from the Tonale concept car that Alfa showed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show when it goes on sale in 2022.

Aston Martin Valhalla

Aston’s first mid-engined car (unless you count the one-off Bulldog) will have a 940bhp V plug-in hybrid powertrain to take on the Ferrari SF90.

New Audi Q9

The new Audi Q9 has been spotted testing. It will be a new flagship SUV that offers an alternative to the BMW X7. It’s expected to be offered with a range of petrol and diesel engines, as well as a plug-in hybrid option. Expect it to be revealed in 2022 with prices starting at around £80,000.

New BMW M2 Coupe

The new BMW M2 is set to have a turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine with around 470hp. It could come with the option of an automatic or manual gearbox and rear- or four-wheel drive and is expected to go on sale as early as 2022.

New BMW X1

The current BMW X1 is a few years old now so a replacement is coming soon. It appears to be sporting an aggressive new design and an overhauled interior. A high-performance X1 M35i is also incoming, as well as an electric iX1.

New BMW X8

The BMW X8 will be a (slightly) sleeker, more aggressive coupe-styled version of the gigantic X7 SUV. BMW revealed the XM concept recently which gives you an idea of what this new SUV will look like, however it hasn’t been confirmed whether the production car will be called the X8 or the XM.

Regardless of the name, it certainly stands out with its divisive styling and slightly whacky interior design. The X8 is expected to have a V8 engine paired to an electric motor which could put out up to 750hp and 1000Nm of torque. Production is set to kick off in late 2022, with prices potentially starting from around £150,000.

New BMW M3 Touring

The first-ever estate version of the BMW M3 was spotted testing in October 2021. It will provide an alternative to the Audi RS4 Avant and Mercedes C63 estate when it launches in 2022.

It will have the same 3.0-litre straight 6 engine as the saloon and is expected to cost a few thousand pounds more.


BMW’s track-focused M4 CSL is a stripped-down, more powerful version of the M4 coupe. It could have as much as 550hp and it will be considerably lighter than the standard M4. Expect to see it revealed in 2022.

New Dacia Bigster

Ignore the silly name, Dacia is deadly serious about making bigger cars, and this new large SUV (previewed by a rugged-looking concept) is its rival to the likes of the Land Rover Defender and Jeep Wrangler. Only much, much cheaper than either of those when it arrives in 2022.

New Ford Mondeo

Ford hasn’t confirmed that a replacement for the discontinued Mondeo is on the way but a model’s been spotted testing that looks very much like it.

It seems that the China-only Evos could form the basis of a replacement for the large family car, with SUV-like styling elements but with a sweeping roofline and stylish headlights. It’s early days for this new model but you can expect to hear more about it soon.

New Ferrari Purosangue

Ferrari making an SUV? Kind of… Don’t expect a Range Rover rival from Maranello, but do expect a replacement for the four-seat GTC4 Lusso with four doors, more interior space, a bigger boot, and a slightly raised ride height. And a massive price tag, of course.

V12 versions first (to prove it’s a proper Ferrari) with V8 and V6 hybrid models to follow.

New Genesis G70

The upcoming Genesis G70 is an incoming alternative to the likes of the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class and Audi A4. An exact launch date hasn’t been confirmed yet, though Genesis says the G70 will be available to order before the end of 2022.

An estate version has also been confirmed, which is called the Genesis G70 Shooting Brake and uses a similar design at the front and a hatchback rear end for improved practicality.

New Honda Civic

Honda’s new Civic drops the slightly over-the-top styling of the current model for something much less divisive but keeps the roomy interior and one of the biggest boots in its class.

It’ll be a hybrid-only model for now, with a 1.5-litre petrol engine shared with the new HR-V crossover, although a larger 2.0-litre model sharing parts with the CR-V Hybrid is a possibility. It doesn’t arrive here till late 2022.

New Ineos Grenadier

Ineos’s reimagining of the old Land Rover Defender looks suitably rugged, comes with straight-six BMW petrol or diesel engines (with the possibility of hydrogen and electric models to come) and an interior inspired by classic aircraft cockpits.

Can Ineos sell enough of them to make a profit, though? You’ll find out in summer 2022.

New Jeep Grand Cherokee

A slightly smaller five-seater version of the new seven-seat Jeep Grand Cherokee is set to arrive in the UK early this year.

Engine options will almost certainly be tailored to European demands, too. Rather than big V8s, expect turbo-diesels and petrol-electric plug-in hybrid options on UK cars – though the US-spec Grand Cherokee’s bold styling and premium-feeling interior should be carried over mostly as-is.

Entry-level cars will likely cost more than £40,000.

New Lotus Emira

This gorgeous mid-engined two-seater will be Lotus’ last petrol-powered car before the brand goes all-electric. Choose from V6 Toyota power or a four-cylinder turbo from Mercedes-AMG. The Emira goes on sale late this year — should Ferrari and Porsche be worried?

New Mercedes-AMG C63

The next Mercedes-AMG C63 will lose its signature V8 engine, controversially. Instead, it will use a 449hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor producing 204hp.

The C63 will also now become four-wheel drive and is likely to do 0-60mph in less than four seconds. There should be the usual choice of saloon, estate, coupe and cabriolet versions. Expect to pay around £80,000 for this new hybrid performance Mercedes.

New Mercedes GLC

A new Mercedes GLC will arrive in 2022 with plenty of petrol, diesel and hybrid engine options, a revised exterior and an S-Class inspired cabin. No details on prices have been announced yet, but expect entry-level versions to set you back close to £45,000.

New Mercedes-AMG S63

Mercedes’ latest hotrod limo will add hybrid assistance to its twin-turbo, 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine. The electric motor will reportedly produce 136hp, giving a total output of over 700hp.

Advanced four-wheel-drive should make this new S63 feel sportier than ever to drive, despite weighing well over two tonnes. As ever, the interior will be extremely luxurious and bursting with gadgets. Expect to pay at least £125,000 for one.

New Nissan X-Trail

The latest version of the Nissan X-Trail has been unveiled – and, at face value, it seems to have taken lots of inspiration from the smaller Nissan Qashqai.

The boxy and angular styling is similar across both cars, and the new X-Trail is also set to get a range-extender hybrid engine option for the first time. Prices haven’t been confirmed yet, though all will be revealed closer to the new Nissan X-Trail’s launch in summer 2022.

New Toyota GR Corolla

Toyota hoping to build on the success of the GR Yaris with the new GR Corolla hot hatch. It may use the same three-cylinder engine from the smaller Yaris, which would mean 261hp and a 0-60 sprint time of around 6 seconds.

This new sporty hatchback is due to be revealed in early 2022, with production starting later in the year.

New Toyota Aygo X

The new Toyota Aygo X has been revealed ahead of it going on sale in 2022. It’s a high riding version of the new Aygo city car and offers some tough looking plastic cladding which should fend off those pesky shopping trollies.
