Mercedes will sell the new car in two base models.

The one model is EQS 450+ and the second model is EQS 580, both of which are expected to be available in U.S. showrooms in December 2022.

The Mercedes-EQ EQS SUV is expected to start at about $90,000 in 2023.

2- BMW i7

BMW is introducing the i7, an all-electric premium vehicle.

As with the fuel-powered model, the electric model was designed in collaboration with the 7-series and provides the same degree of luxury.

The BMW i7 is composed of 2 electric motors and has a large enough battery to compete with the Mercedes EQS and other popular electric cars.

For the time being, BMW will only sell the xDrive60 version of the EV i7. It is expected that a modern and advanced variant will be delivered in the future. The EV i7 is a luxury sedan, with an additional package of premium features for the rear-seat passengers. It adds a slew of perks to warrant the extra cost, such as luxurious back seats that offer massage.

The 2023 BMW i7 electric car will be expensive.

It would be the most premium 7 Series variant existing at the time of debut, with an MSRP of $119,300.

The new BMW i7 will be on sale in the fall of 2022.

3- Porsche 718 Cayman

The auto manufacturer has set up the bar high in the electric car industry after the success of the Porsche Taycan. Porsche is now with huge plans for its upcoming electric cars.

Price and Launch Date

The Porsche 718 should appear in the battery-electric version in 2025, with the Macan EV arriving significantly sooner than at the beginning of 2024.

To accommodate all of the additional technology, pricing will most certainly be increased for the existing car and that could be around $58000.

4- Audi Q6 E-Tron

The E-Tron SUV and E-Tron GT from Audi are the company’s trendsetting electric vehicles.

The Audi Q6 E-Tron seems to be Audi’s first luxurious SUV, placing it as the king of comfort in the market. As a version of the upcoming A6 E-Tron sedan, the 2023 Q6 E-Tron will be Audi’s SUV counterpart.

This new electric car, Q6 E-Tron by Audi will help the company to recoup costs from the A6’s delayed sale. Not only that, it also offers a choice for those who are looking for a moderate sized car, not too compact like the Q5 E-Tron or big like the E-Tron SUV.

Price and Launch Date

Audi has not yet revealed the engine specifications for the Q6 E-Tron. A basic variant of the Audi Q6 E-Tron would be around $60,000 and the expected launch is in late 2022.

Basically, the company describes the Ioniq 7 concept as a much larger version of the available electric SUVs in the market right now. The SUV will be built on Hyundai’s Electric-Global Modular Platform, which can support several electric cars with varying battery systems.

Price and Launch Date

It will also have several similarities to the Ioniq 5, such as pixelated lights.

The launch of Ioniq 7 is expected in 2024 and the price estimation is that it would be above $55000.

6- Kia EV9

As with many other prototype vehicles that lose their individuality as they transfer to production, the EV9 will maintain its promised look and advanced appearance.

Hyundai’s Electric-Global Platform underpins the Kia EV9 which is the surety of its reliable features.

Likewise, Hyundai is using this platform to build its Ioniq 7.

Based on current estimates, the device can travel up to 310 miles and charge at a rate of up to 350 kilowatts. This means the SUV’s battery can be charged from 5% to 90% in half an hour. The EV9 prototype has an outstanding lobby environment with a variety of seating options, featuring futuristic hexagonal steering.

Price and Launch Date

It is expected to price at around $55000 and would launch at the end of 2023.

7- Nissan Micra

The European slow-selling mini-car is going to get a makeover and a better engine.

Nissan has confirmed its intention to substitute the Micra mini car with a new all-electric vehicle, which will be tied to the new Renault 5. However, the year 2024 has the chance to witness the Renault 5.

The plans are that Nissan will develop a new vehicle which will be built and assembled by Renault on their unified platform.

The Micra supermini’s successor will be a blend of nostalgic and modern design, with an electric engine and an attractive appearance.

Price and Launch Date

Prices have yet to be announced, but again Micra will maintain Nissan’s entry-level car prices, which can be around $25000. The launch of the Nissan Micra is expected to be in 2025.

It would be the second attempt by Honda after the sales decline of the first EV Clarity sedan.

There are no details revealed about this upcoming electric car but it’s obvious through the concept design that Honda Prologue would be attractive, comfortable and would be designed with modern lighting.

The Honda Prologue will be built on a foundation created in collaboration with General Motors, and it will employ an Ultium battery similar to those used in upcoming GM EVs.

Price and Launch Date

The price of the Honda electric car is estimated at around $45000 and the launch would be in mid 2024.

Final Thoughts

These are the game-changers in the auto industry. Electric vehicles are quite easier to handle and, without a doubt, more efficient in terms of power and mileage.
