In the next few years, there are going to be more than a couple of electric vehicles hitting the market. The future is electric, and that is being proved by the number of cars that are coming to the market from all different kinds of car manufacturers. We are going to be looking at some of the new releases that you can expect to see, and it will come as no surprise that you see Tesla leading that pack. Although, many automakers are slowly following the EV trend, it might not be long before we see a new name at the top of the industry.
The Tesla Roadster v2 is due in 2020, and it’s definitely not going to be easy to ignore. This is going to be the first open-top Tesla, and as you would expect from Musk, it is said to be the world’s fastest car. Supposedly being able to go from 0-60mph in a record breaking 1.9 seconds, you better hold onto your hat because it’s going to be a fun ride. It is also thought to have a top speed of 250mph and a 620-mile range, but we don’t suggest you cling to that like it’s hardcore fact, it’s never possible to know for sure.
The body is lightweight, with the car having four seats. Don’t be surprised if you don’t see the car in 2020, though, because Tesla, despite being the leading electric vehicle manufacturer, they seem to have an issue with getting their cars out on time.
Aston Martin Lagonda
Aston Martin kicked off their Lagonda brand a while ago, and now they are coming back with a storm with their All-Terrain concept. In true Aston Martin fashion, the Lagonda is going big on all of those benefits that powertrains bring. As such, you can expect an exterior design, unlike what you would usually see from an EV, so don’t be surprised when you see something different and out of this world.
This will help BMW move into a more family-friendly market. You can expect this saloon car to have two electric motors and four wheel drive. If you think that sounds like a pretty awesome car, you’d be right. If the rumors are true, BMW might even be following Tesla and offering different versions of the car with different power outputs. We’ll have to wait and see on that one, though, and wait for BMW to announce it officially.
You might even get to see this car in the showroom as early as 2020, but that’s not confirmed yet, so keep your eyes out for pictures of the model in the coming months.
Mustang Mach-E SUV
With very impressive performance numbers and styling, this family all-electric SUV has put Ford up-front and center in the EV world. With a starting base price of around $36,000 (including $7,500 Federal Tax Credit) the Mach-E will be the most affordable EV SUV on the market, by a long shot. We can't wait to see this hit the streets with an expected release date of October 2020.
With just about every major auto manufacturer rushing to produce the next best EV, you can clearly see the writing on the wall that the future is certainly electric, with Tesla leading the pack to a whole new regime. With contenders slowly catching up, though, it’s no surprise that we are seeing some of the other manufacturers starting to challenge Tesla for the crown.
