Electric Cars to Watch Out for in 2023

In 2023, highly anticipated electric cars, including two new Teslas, are set to hit the market at accessible prices and with mesmerizing performance. Here are some of the electric cars to watch out for:

  • Fisker Ocean

    Fisker has launched an affordable SUV called the Ocean, offering up to 250 miles of real-world driving range with a single motor powertrain delivering 275 horsepower. The higher-end versions have a dual motor setup providing at least 540 horsepower, enabling a 0 to 60 sprint in either 3.6 or 3.9 seconds. The Fisker Ocean comes with advanced features such as smart traction, digital radar technology, and a solar skyroof for extra energy.

  • Abatera Super Aerodynamic Car

    Californian company Abatera has designed a super aerodynamic car that reduces drag coefficient to an insane 0.13, providing up to 40 miles of sun-powered energy a day. This twoseater is equipped with solar panels and can easily travel 1000 miles on a single charge.

  • Chevy Equinox EV

    Chevy Equinox EV has an uncompromising performance with an affordable price tag starting at $30,000. The single motor makes 210 horsepower and is expected to have a real-world range of 250 miles. The Equinox EV is based on GM’s cutting-edge EV platform powered by Ultium batteries and featuring a wireless battery management system that eventually contributes to the low cost of the vehicle.

  • Tesla Next-Gen Roadster

    Tesla’s Next-Gen Roadster is built from the inside out using Tesla’s structural battery technology, meaning the high-energy dense 4680 battery will also act as an actual structural part of the vehicle. With a planned powertrain, the car can reach 60 miles per hour in just 1.9 seconds. Tesla will also offer a SpaceX package coming with cold air rocket thrusters around the vehicle to rocket the next-gen Roadster to 60 miles per hour in an incredible 1.1 seconds. The bullet that is targeted to achieve an incredible 600 miles of range is estimated to cost from $200,000 to $250,000.

  • Lotus Electra SUV

    Lotus Electra SUV offers a unique combination of legendary performance DNA and cutting-edge engineering. The vehicle is estimated to start at $85,000 in the US and will be available in three configurations offering dual-motor powertrain for all versions. Lotus offers the R version of the Electra, which provides a lowered ride height, creating the impression of a high-riding sports car rather than an SUV.

Hyundai Ionic 6

The Hyundai Ionic 6 offers 41 miles more range than the Ioniq 5 with the same powertrain and similar weight. It features pixel lighting technology and a fixed bridge-type center console. The vehicle offers spaciousness and optimized legroom with its energy-efficient sloping roofline. The battery’s 80% capacity can be recovered in as little as 18 minutes, and the car can share its power for charging any electric device. The entry-level single motor Ionic 6 is estimated to achieve about 250 miles of range with a smaller standard range battery, while the all-wheel-drive big battery versions can cover a distance of up to 340 miles depending on the drive system. The performance package or the end version can make 585 horsepower and 546 pound-feet of torque, which should enable a naught to 60 sprint in less than 3.5 seconds. The Ionic 6 is expected to cost a bit higher than the Ionic 5.

Lexus RZ

Lexus is bringing its first all-electric vehicle to market under the RZ trademark. This electric crossover shares its underpinnings with its cousin, the Toyota BZ4X. The RZ packs some remarkable features for a more luxurious experience, including the advanced steer-by-wire system. The electric RZ cranks out 308 ponies and 320 pound-feet of torque and can achieve 225 miles of real-world range. The battery pack will retain 90% over a decade of charging cycles. Lexus did not disclose the price of its newest addition, but it’s estimated to start at around $55,000.

Tesla Cybertruck

Tesla is bringing a vehicle to market in 2023 that can float. According to Elon Musk, the Cybertruck will be waterproof enough to serve briefly as a boat for crossing rivers and lakes that aren’t too choppy. The Cybertruck’s exoskeleton body, which will be made by the world’s largest casting machine, is super strong and lighter, reducing manufacturing costs. The vehicle can tow a whopping 14,000 pounds, and the top-end version can reach 60 miles per hour in just under 3 seconds and have 500 miles of range. The final specs and pricing of Tesla’s most powerful tool will be revealed later, but it’s worth remembering that the Cybertruck will be eligible for the $7,500 government incentive to take electric cars mainstream.

BMW i5

BMW’s more luxurious electric 5 Series will feature a normal kidney grille. The BMW i5 is estimated to start at least at $65,000 and will probably borrow the battery pack options from the iX SUV and the top-end i4 for a driving range of 280 to 350 miles.

Audi A6 e-tron

The Audi A6 e-tron will be available in two different body styles, the four-door coupe and a station wagon called Avant, offering great aerodynamics. The car has quite a clean exterior design with sleek and elegant lines and features bleeding-edge technologies into their lighting units. Both single and dual motor options will be available in a sportback variant, with a dual motor setup expected to cost about $80,000. The models are targeted to achieve 400 miles of range and hit 60 miles per hour in less than 4 seconds.

Volkswagen ID7

Volkswagen is bringing its first electric sedan to market under the name of ID7. It’s expected to feature the same powertrain as the ID4 but due to the more aerodynamic shape, we can expect more driving range. The five-meter-long ID7 is also expected to have a bit higher price tag.
