2021 has been a brilliant year for EVs (electric vehicles), but 2022 is set to be even better! Here are all our favourite electric vehicles due to be released in 2022!
Thinking about going electric but don’t want to shout it from the rooftops? Well, the BMW i4 could be the EV for you! The i4 is just one of the all-electric vehicles to be released by the BMW Group in 2021.
Our first talking point of the BMW i4 is the relatively traditional stylish you’ll find throughout, unlike the BMW i3. You can instantly see the similarities between the i4 and the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, and that could be a really good thing!
Set to rival the Polestar 2 and Tesla Model 3, the BMW i4 is a four-door coupe with up to 367 miles of range and 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds. There’s also charging capabilities of up to 150kW, which is not quite as much as in Teslas or the Porsche Taycan. However, it’ll still charge up to 80% in 35 mines. Not too shabby.
The BMW i4 is set to be released in November 2022 with a starting price of £51,905. Do you think we should add the BMW i4 to our fleet?
Next up is the BMW iX, which some are naming BMW’s most important electric car as it showcases the future direction of the Groups EVs. It’s without a doubt the most radical and technologically advanced BMW has released since the i3, almost a decade ago.
The large SUV packs the latest generation of electric motors, in car entertainment and driver assistance systems. The iX offers a new level of connectivity, including 5G and cloud technology. Plus, the car will be able to steer, accelerate and brake for itself in certain situations.
The entry-level iX xDrive40 will provide a maximum range of 257 miles from its 70kWh battery. Whereas, a more powerful xDrive50 version will also be offered, with a range of 380 miles thanks to a 100kWh battery.
The BMW iX is also due to be released in November 2022, with prices starting from a mega £69,905.
Possibly the car we’re most excited to see in action next year is the Citroen Ami. Citroen broke headlines earlier in 2021 when they announced the release of their smallest EV yet, the Ami.
With a range of 43 miles, the Ami is fitted with a 5.5kWh battery which can be fully charged in a tiny three hours. The two-seater city car is expected to cost around £6,000 and Citeron has already been overrun with demand.
Over in France, the Ami can actually be driven by anyone over the age of 13. However, in the UK, you’ll still need a full driving licence to get behind the wheel where you can reach a whopping speed of 28mph max.
We really cannot wait to see this EV hit the streets in hopefully spring 2022.
The Cupra Born was originally due to be released as a Seat model, however it has now been branded Cupra’s first all-electric model. The car takes on a sportier look, with signature copper detailing and is set to rival the Volkswagen ID.3.
Like the ID.3, this EV has three different battery options of 45kWh, 58kWh or 77kWh. Depending on which model you choose, the Born has a range of up to 335 miles. More or less on par with the ID.3 predicted 338 miles, depending on the model.
All the Cupra Born models are rear-wheel drive and are due to be released in early 2022 for £32,000 starting.
There will be three models available; a rear-wheel drive and two all-wheel drive models. All three will be fitted with a 77.4kWh battery which provides up to 280 miles of range. Plus, there’s charging capabilities of up to 350kW which boosts the battery level from 10% to 80% in 18 minutes.
The car is equipped with digital side mirrors and auto-flush outside door handles, giving a smoother appearance. It will also feature active noise cancelling and suspension that uses a camera to adapt to the road ahead.
We’ll see the Genesis GV60 on the UK roads in late 2022. There is a pretty steep price range for the GV60 which starts at over £60,000, which is more in line with the Jaguar I-Pace and Audi e-tron, than the EV6 or Ioniq 5.
Nissan is expanding their electric car range with the futuristic-looking Ariya SUV, due to be released in September 2022. The new model, billed as a coupe crossover, will be offered with a variety of power outputs and battery sizes, which give a maximum range of 310 miles.
It’s styling takes advantage of the car’s electric underpinnings, allowing for short overhangs and a closed grille. Inside, the Ariya is packed with modern tech, including two 12-inch infotainment screens which dominate the interior.
Toyota have been silent in terms of their all-electric models but have focused on producing hybrid models for near enough all of their conventional vehicles. The bZ4X will be the brand’s first fully electric model so we’re excited to see what it’s like.
Jointly developed with Subaru, the new model is expected to focus on driver engagement while also providing a lot of interior space. Details of the car’s battery or range are yet to be confirmed, but Toyota have said the bZ4X will provide “class leasing efficiency and a very competitive driving range”.
It’s not just the bZ4X Toyota plans to release either, there’s currently seven new electric cars in the pipeline. All of which are due to be released under the brand’s new bZ (below Zero) sub-brand by 2025.
At the moment, that’s all we know about the bZ4X which should be hitting the marketing in Summer 2022.
