Electric vehicles we can’t wait to see on the roads

It’s no secret that electric vehicles are taking over transportation as one in five drivers consider making the switch. The groundwork for an all electric future has already been laid, but this is only the beginning. Over the next five years we’re going to see thousands of electric vehicles join our roads. Read on to find out which EVs we can’t wait to see. 

Tesla Cybertruck

Whether you love him or hate him, it’s undeniable that Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, knows exactly what he’s doing when it comes to electric vehicles. 

The Tesla Cybertruck is a truly futuristic vehicle. The exterior of this EV is made of stainless steel,  making it one of the most durable vehicles that will be on the market. As if this vehicle couldn’t get any stronger it showcases Tesla’s new armour glass on all of its windows. 

At the top end this vehicle will be capable of doing 500 miles of range and it will have a 0-60 mph speed of just 2.9 seconds. 

Rather than having a normal boot space, the Cybertruck has 100 cubic feet of lockable storage. This space is perfect for transporting its younger brother, the Cyberquad from place to place. 

The space-like look will definitely turn some heads on the roads. I certainly wouldn’t want to get stuck at a red light next to one!

Mercedes EQXX

Many people are resistant to making the switch to electric vehicles due to two dreaded words… range anxiety. This sleek car (although only a vision at present) has a range of 1000km per charge. Now that is one impressive number! 

This vehicle achieves complete luxury while still steering away from the use of animal products. The interior is made up of a unique mix of sustainable products including: mushrooms, bamboo, cactus and even vegan silk. 

It would be safe to say that this car is definitely an insight to what the future of electric vehicles is going to look like. For now,  why not take a look at some of Mercedes’ current EVs at EVision

Vauxhall Astra-e

Over 3 million Vauxhall Astras have been sold in the UK. Meaning it only makes sense for Vauxhall to release an all electric version of the car we all know and love! But will it compare to the Corsa-e? Let’s find out. 

The Vauxhall Astra-e is set to arrive in 2023 and we can’t wait. This all electric vehicle will make for the perfect family car. 

It’s clear that Vauxhall has listened to its consumers when designing this car. We all know the majority of electric vehicle manufacturers are making one big mistake! They’re trying to over modernise every design by making everything accessible through the infotainment screens only. Vauxhall have gone against this trend by making sure their systems are as practical as possible. Although there is still a breath-taking infotainment system, Vauxhall have made no mistakes in including hard key buttons to the design of this vehicle. Unlike in many other electric vehicles, changing the temperature or adjusting the volume in the car will take minimal concentration. 

This car also has safety down to a T. With curve speed control and adaptive speed control, both of which will slow you down when you may be in danger. 

Volkswagen ID.Buzz

We’re all aware of the classic VW Bus, well Volkswagen have brought it back as the ID.Buzz

The ID.Buzz is a modernised, all-electric version of the VW Bus. It will come in two different forms. The ID.Buzz Cargo, which is expected to be priced at around £46,000 and the ID.Buzz five-seater. Judging by the prices already set in Germany we can expect this vehicle to cost approximately £55,000.

The two tone paint option is undoubtedly inspired by the original VW Bus, and we’re completely in awe. Although most of this car is completely modern, there are a few details taken from the bus. The sliding doors and v-shaped bonnet are certainly a blast from the past. 

This vehicle also comes with a range of 260 miles on a full charge making it the perfect option for any family adventure.  

Citroen Ami

The Citroen Ami is undeniably one of the craziest electric vehicles to date! What makes it even crazier is that you don’t even need a driving licence to drive it. In France you can drive this vehicle at as young as 14.

This two seater EV has a range of approximately 43 miles and takes 3 hours to charge from your standard at home plug socket. Although this may seem ludicrous to some people this is the perfect vehicle for anyone living in a city or doing minimal day to day driving. 

As if the Ami couldn’t get any better, if and when this vehicle comes to the UK it’s estimated to cost £7695 outright. If you were hoping to pay for this car monthly it’s said to set you back the same amount as the average UK phone bill. 

Don’t get your hopes up for anything extraordinary, this vehicle is the most basic EV on the market with a minimalist feel… Even the windows have to be opened manually. However it looks as if this car could be the future of London’s infamous bikes, I know which I’d rather travel in.
