Electric Trucks and SUVs

Electric vehicles keep gaining traction, with a slew of models headed to market in the next couple of years. Global electric car sales were up 66% year over year in July 2022, and those numbers should grow as larger EVs — crossovers, SUVs, and pickups — go into production, plus California's new law that will ban the sale of non-electric vehicles starting in 2035 might inspire other states to follow suit. Here’s a rundown of what’s available, plus what’s in the pipeline if you’re willing to wait, including two new Jeep models that are only half of what the manufacturer plans to offer for electric SUVs for the 2025 model year.


Editor's note: This story has been updated since publication. Many numbers are estimates; details will emerge as vehicles get closer to market.

Jeep Recon

Jeep Recon

Expected: 2025

Horsepower: Unknown

Range: Unknown 

Starting price: Unknown

Jeep's all-electric Recon is being created specifically for off-roading and will be Trail Rated with electronic locking axles, off-road tires, and underbody protection. The doors will be removable and the top can be let down with power retraction. Jeep has said that reservations for the new EV will begin in early 2023 although production isn't set to begin until 2024.

Jeep Wagoneer S

Expected: 2025

Horsepower: 600

Range: 400 miles

Starting price: Unknown 

Although the "Wagoneer S" is actually just a codename with an impending actual model name yet to be unveiled, Jeep has already been causing a stir with talk of the new electric model. The EV will come with standard four-wheel drive and a signature design which includes a sloping roofline and a forward-swept nose. Like the Recon, which is also part of Jeep's initiative to release four different models for its 2025 lineup, reservations for the Wagoneer S will be available sometime in 2023.

Chevrolet Equinox

Chevrolet Equinox

Expected: 2023

Horsepower: 210

Range: 250-300 miles

Starting price: $30,000

With a low (for EVs) starting price, Chevrolet may be able to reach some potential buyers who have resisted the EV revolution because of price. Starting at $30,000, the Equinox joins the brand's Silverado EV and Blazer EV, but for less — at least for the basic model. More expensive versions offer hands-free driving, 300 miles of range, and a 19.2-kW onboard charger. There are also two battery size choices, with the smaller one having a 250-mile charge and the larger a 300-mile charge. What neither has is a frunk (front trunk), which Chevrolet claims is costly to make and not a focus-group favorite.

Chevrolet Blazer EV
Cheverlot General Motors

Chevrolet Blazer EV

Expected: 2023

Horsepower: 557

Range: 247 to 320 miles

Starting price: $44,995

Chevy is giving its iconic Blazer the EV treatment, including a souped-up SS performance trim that Chevy says will reach 60 mph in under 4 seconds. Three other trims are available for pre-order with a wide variety of powertrain options starting at just under $45,000. Three battery sizes will be offered, though Chevy hasn't said how big the packs will be, according to Car and Driver. The first 2024 models will be available in summer 2023, with the least expensive 1LT debuting in winter 2024.

Toyota bZ4X

Expected: Now

Horsepower: Up to 214

Range: 222 to 252 miles

Starting price: $43,215

The bZ4X is Toyota's first fully electric vehicle to be sold nationwide. Despite the angular styling, Car and Driver says the SUV is more utilitarian than edgy, and sports a clunky name that's a composite of "beyond zero" emissions, the vehicle size, and body style. The standard front-wheel drive configuration can go 0 to 60 mph in under 7 seconds, but upgrading to the all-wheel-drive dual-motor model only adds 13 horsepower in an effort to keep the drive experiences similar. Look for it in dealerships of states participating in the Zero Emission Vehicle program now, with full nationwide rollout expected by the end of the year.

GMC Hummer EV Pickup

GMC Hummer EV Pickup

Available: Now

Horsepower: 1,000

Range: 350-plus miles

Starting price: $110,295

The electric Hummer pickup marks a shift for the historically stuffy GMC. Reviewers just now getting their first look say it's filled with cheeky features and references, like a "watts to freedom" mode (note the initials) and a prominent dash button that currently does nothing because the truck's owners will determine its purpose. GMC is rolling out versions of the electric Hummer pickup over the course of several years, MotorTrend says, beginning later this year with the three-motor Edition 1 made at a retooled Detroit-Hamtramck plant that will make only electric vehicles. The first versions will be expensive, with “cheaper” models (still starting at $79,995) following. Those who order the pickup now probably won't get their hands on it until 2024 due to tens of thousands of reservations in the pipeline.

Tesla Cybertruck

Expected: Now (With a Caveat)

Horsepower: Unknown

Range: 250 to 500 miles

Starting price: $39,900

With more than a million reservations, customers will unfortunately have to wait another year to own this hotly anticipated, love-it-or-hate-it truck. Due to the global chip shortage, Tesla says it won't be able to roll out any new models at all for 2022. When the eye-catching Cybertruck does hit the market, the single-motor model is expected to cost about $40,000, with a dual-motor version beginning at $49,900 and a three-motor model at $69,900.

GM Chevy Silverado EV
GM

Chevrolet Silverado EV

Expected: 2023

Horsepower: Up to 510

Range: 400 miles

Starting price: $40,000

GMC unveiled the Silverado EV at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January, announcing that it will go into production in spring 2023. Unlike many electric trucks, this one has a smooth front instead of a faux grille, making it a good pick for anyone who wants to stand out. Though it's about the same size as its non-electric brother, the EV shares no parts with the regular Silverado. The battery in the high-end RST model allows for a 10,000-pound tow rating, and the truck can manage 0 to 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds

Ford F-150 Lightning

Expected: 2023

Horsepower: Up to 563

Range: 230 to 300 miles

Starting price: $41,769

A new version of America’s favorite truck debuted this year, powered by two electric motors. “Performance should be brisk, but we’ll have to wait until we can strap our test gear on to find out exactly how quick the new truck will be,” MotorTrend says. That was before President Joe Biden took one for a spin, shooting down the track in front of a pool of national reporters. You can’t buy publicity like that, and buyers have taken notice: Ford took 200,000 orders for the truck and has had to stop taking reservations. If you missed the first round, don't expect to get one of your own until 2023.

Tesla Model X
Tesla, Inc.

Tesla Model X

Available: Now

Horsepower: Up to 1,020

Range: 360 miles

Starting price: $93,190

The Model X is a pioneer among electric SUVs, MotorTrend says — “the first vehicle of its kind to offer practical all-electric range.” The standard model seats five, but a six- or seven-seat configuration is available as an upgrade. It’s a midyear update that offers a model with three electric motors producing 1,020 horsepower.

Ford Mustang Mach-E and Mach-E GT

Available: Now

Horsepower: Starting at 266 

Range: Starting at 230

Starting price: $42,895

Ford took some heat for appropriating the iconic pony badge for these four-door electric crossovers. But all seems to be forgiven as the model, with styling inspired by the older muscle car, has turned out to be a solid seller. The just-released GT version adds more power — fans of the "real" Mustang may find 480 hp more agreeable than the base model's 266 — plus better suspension and sportier tires and seats. There's also a huge touchscreen that will make Tesla users feel at home if they switch over.

Starting price: $67,500

Rivian officially beat its much larger rivals to the punch, with its first batch of the R1T truck — the first-ever electric pickup — rolling off its Illinois assembly line in September. The truck, capable of towing 11,000 pounds, is available to order on Rivian's website (the startup does not have showrooms) and buyers have seven days or 1,000 miles to return the vehicle after delivery, according to CNN

Audi E-Tron

Horsepower: 355 to 402

Range: 222 miles

Starting price: $66,995

Originally offered in the 2019 model year, the E-Tron is “one of our favorite luxury electric SUVs” and offers the creature comforts of an Audi Q7, Edmunds says. A sleeker Sportback version has the same driving performance with a little less headroom in the back and a slightly smaller range. 

Chevrolet Bolt EUV
Chevrolet

Chevrolet Bolt EUV

Available: Now

Horsepower: 200 

Range: 247 miles

Starting price: $33,000

The Bolt Electric Utility Vehicle isn’t an SUV, Edmunds says — mainly because it has less cargo space than the regular Bolt EV model. But Chevy argues that’s because of an oddity in the way the space is measured, and that the EUV really is bigger. After several car fires, GM told owners of 50,000 Bolts from earlier model years to park them outside immediately after charging. Not a great selling point.

This is the second model year of the all-electric counterpart to the Niro hybrid and Niro PHEV plug-in hybrid, and it’s still available only in select states. Car and Driver calls it “a surprisingly refined and satisfying subcompact crossover,” though it “isn’t exciting in any way.”

Starting price: $51,690

Smaller than the Model X, this compact electric crossover SUV can be equipped with reclining second-row seats and has a large cargo bay. A seven-seat model is available, but MotorTrend says the third row “is tiny and best used in emergency situations.”

Like other well-known nameplates, Jeep has plans to make an all-electric version of one its most popular vehicles. Car and Driver says that plan includes four battery packs, a six-speed manual transmission, and a clutch system that gives a little power back to the batteries when in use. The Magneto is still a concept vehicle at this point.

The compact SUV/hatchback will be the first of seven EVs to be built on Kia’s Electric-Global Modular Platform, “and its performance specs give it the tools necessary to strike at the Tesla Model Y,” in Edmunds’ judgment. Those tools include a powerful motor, standard rear-wheel drive, and a “high-voltage electrical architecture” for long-distance cruising.

It was shooting for a drivable prototype by April with availability in late 2022, InsideHook says. But considering the prototype didn’t appear on schedule and the company is looking for more funding, it’s tough to say when — or if — we’ll see an Alpha in a showroom. Or it could become the basis for a rumored Nissan Titan electric truck.

Volkswagen is hoping to grab first-time car buyers with a cheap, "endearingly cute" electric SUV. The ID. Life, introduced at a Munich auto show, could become a reality in 2025, though there are likely to be changes from the concept car. We can only hope the street-ready version will also be made from several different recycled and renewable materials, including wood chips in the paint and recycled bottles in the removable roof. The concept car's tires are made from rice husks and natural rubber, too. Among the other head-turning features: An open-topped steering wheel with a touchscreen.
