2022 proved to be a very successful year for new car designs, especially electric vehicles. The technology available for the production of cars has never been better, which means the calibre of EVs is at an all-time high. Read on to find out some of the new and exciting EVs that will be on our radar for 2023.
The Hyundai Kona is a high-performing EV that brings together a useful range, innovative technology and comfortable interiors that allows it to be a powerful all-rounder, successfully ticking many boxes.
There are different battery options to choose from when it comes to the Kona, however to get the most range from the EV, the best option to select would be the 64kWh that gives a claimed range of 300 miles. The bold exterior body design after the new facelift gives the Hyundai a high-end feel, which is supported by a sleek minimal design on the inside of the vehicle. The Kona also comes in a petrol and a hybrid version.
Ford E-Tourneo Custom
After the huge success of Ford’s first commercial EV, the E-Transit, their next venture into the electric world has been eagerly awaited.
The Ford Tourneo Custom is a popular vehicle in its own right with both commercial customers and families alike. An exceptionally functional people carrier that offers endless practicality, it’s no wonder Ford have brought out an all-electric version to meet consumer demand. The E-Tourneo Custom has 'L-Mode' that can be selected to make the vehicle's battery last even longer by increasing the rate at which the battery charges using regenerative braking.
Vauxhall Astra Electric
Vauxhall’s new Astra Electric has a sleek, aerodynamic exterior to match its practical yet futuristic infotainment and control technology. Harbouring two 10-inch screens to optimise driver ease, 152bhp and an impressive range of 258 miles, the Astra Electric is definitely a vehicle to watch in 2023.
In contrast to some of the other EVs in the Vauxhall range, the brand-new Astra Electric will not be following the naming pattern of the Corsa-e and Mokka-e. This could be to illustrate how the Astra Electric is equal in performance to its combustion engine counterpart, and how Vauxhall may wish to showcase their EVs in the future.
The ID3 has various options for interior design and five striking paint colours for the exterior to choose from, so you can really make this Volkswagen your own.
In terms of performance, there are also different battery options to select from. Starting off with the entry level, you can expect a range of 217 miles on a single charge thanks to a 45-kWh battery. The top spec of the ID3 is the Pro S, with an incredible 336 mile range from a powerful 77-kWh battery.
Moving up to the more premium end of the EV scale, the Polestar 2 has a sophisticated exterior style paired with a high-tech interior that provides the driver with the ultimate experience. The Polestar boasts four USB charging points to make sure your device is topped up on the go. You will also be able to connect your smartphone to the vehicle’s huge 11.2-inch infotainment system to make calls and play your music library.
The highest specification of the Polestar 2 has an impressive range of up to 341 miles, so any range anxiety can be put to rest in this top-class vehicle.
