On a Fast Track

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 199% year over year in May, and those numbers should grow as larger EVs — crossovers, SUVs, and pickups — go into production. Many are still in concept stages, and some new companies are struggling to find the financing to bring their ideas to fruition. Here’s a rundown of what’s available (plus what’s in the pipeline if you’re willing to wait) including the first-ever electric pickup, which just rolled off the assembly line. 


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

Horsepower: Up to 800

Range: 314 miles

Starting price: $67,500

Rivian has 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.

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 recent 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.

The Model X is deemed by MotorTrend a pioneer among electric SUVs — “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.

A new version of America’s favorite truck launches next spring, 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.

GMC is rolling out versions of the electric Hummer pickup over the course of several years, MotorTrend says, beginning with the three-motor Edition 1 made at a retooled Detroit-Hamtramck plant that will make only electric vehicles.

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.

Available information on this model shows a small battery pack (which accounts for the 124-mile driving range) and a front-wheel drive electric motor, Car and Driver says. It’s expected to be sold in the United States, but maybe not at launch. It would be the first EV for the carmaker.

Hercules Electric Vehicles started in 2018 in Detroit with the goal of building an electric pickup truck to launch a line of luxury “eco-utility” products. 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, recently 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.
