Electric Trucks and SUVs

Electric vehicles keep gaining traction, with many new models headed to market in the next couple of years. Electric car sales globally were up 66% year over year in July, and those numbers should grow as larger EVs — crossovers, SUVs, and pickups — go into production, plus California's new law that bans the sale of nonelectric vehicles starting in 2035 might inspire other states to follow suit. What's more, confusion about a new tax credit might drive further demand in the first three months of 2023. Only a handful of trucks and SUVs on the Treasury Department's list are eligible for the credit, according to the New York Times. They include the Ford F-150 Lighting, Rivian's R1T and R1S, and the Tesla Model Y — though that could change after March. Here’s what’s available and what’s in the pipeline if you’re willing to wait, including a just-revealed electric Ram that could revolutionize the automaker's iconic truck line.


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

Ram 1500 Revolution BEV

Expected: 2024

Horsepower: Unknown

Range: Unknown 

Starting price: Unknown

Unveiled at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show, Dodge's concept for its all-electric Ram has a sleek and sprawling body. Inside, the truck has third-row seating with a rail system to customize seating arrangements, plus a pass-through that allows it to haul objects up to 18 feet long. The stretched-out, futuristic pickup's rear doors open in the opposite direction of the front doors and the cabin is customizable, allowing drivers to even remove the center console to allow for more interior space.

Rolls-Royce Spectre

Expected: Late 2023

Horsepower: 577

Range: 260 miles 

Starting price: Unknown

The Spectre is Rolls-Royce's first EV, and you can tell by one glance that it's a Rolls. Despite being a 2-door coupe, it's massive: longer than many full-size SUVs, and about as sleek as they come. It's estimated to have a hefty price tag — $400,000, according to Car and Driver — to match. The specs are fine, but as with any super luxury vehicle, it's all about style. The signature front grille is the widest on a Rolls model, despite the lack of need for it, seeing as there's no engine to cool And Rolls' "starlight headliner" feature that fills the ceiling with a fiber optic starry sky? It runs down the doors in the Spectre, just in case the fact that it's a Rolls isn't impressive enough.

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 are removable and the top can be let down with power retraction. Reservations for the new EV are set to start in early 2023, though production isn't expected to begin until 2024.

Jeep Wagoneer S

Expected: 2025

Horsepower: 600

Range: 400 miles

Starting price: Unknown 

Although the Wagoneer S is just a codename with the 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 that 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 are to be available sometime in 2023.

Chevrolet Equinox
Chevrolet

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 cost. Starting at $30,000, the Equinox joins the company'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-kilowatt onboard charger. There are also two battery sizes that provide enough charge to go 250 or 300 miles. Neither version has a frunk, or front trunk, which Chevrolet says 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 can 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 are expected, though Chevy hasn't said how big the packs will be, according to Car and Driver. The first 2024 models are slated to be available in summer 2023, with the least expensive 1LT debuting in winter 2024. 

Toyota bZ4X
Toyota Motor Sales

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, and its size and body style. The standard front-wheel drive configuration can go zero 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 driving experiences similar. Look for bZ4X 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 Pressroom

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 does nothing because the truck's owners 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 is slated to make only electric vehicles. The first versions will be expensive, with “cheaper” models (still starting at $80,000) following. Customers who order the pickup now probably won't get their hands on one until 2024 because of the tens of thousands of reservations in the pipeline.

Tesla Cybertruck
Tesla, Inc.

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 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 can't 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 2022 and said production would start in spring 2023. Unlike many electric trucks, this one has a smooth front instead of a faux grille. Though it's about the same size as Chevy's nonelectric pickups, 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 zero to 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds.

Ford F-150 Lightning
Ford Media Center

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
Ford Media Center

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.

Rivian R1T
Rivian

Rivian R1T

Available: Now

Horsepower: Up to 800

Range: 314 miles

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 has no showrooms) and buyers have seven days or 1,000 miles to return the vehicle after delivery.

Audi E-Tron
Audi

Audi E-Tron

Available: Now

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.

Hyundai Kona Electric
Hyundai Media Center

Hyundai Kona Electric

Available: Now

Horsepower: 201 

Range: 258 miles

Starting price: $38,565

This small crossover might be better than the gas-powered model, MotorTrend says. And at less than $40,000, the Kona is one of the most affordable EVs on the market.

Kia Niro EV
Kia Media

Kia Niro EV

Available: Now

Horsepower: 201

Range: 239 miles

Starting price: $39,090

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 nine states. Car and Driver calls it “a surprisingly refined and satisfying subcompact crossover,” though it “isn’t exciting in any way.”

Tesla Model Y
Tesla, Inc.

Tesla Model Y

Available: Now

Horsepower: Up to 456 

Range: 326 miles

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.”

Volkswagen ID4
Volkswagen Media Site

Volkswagen ID4

Available: Now

Horsepower: 201

Range: 250 miles

Starting price: $41,190

This first version of the affordable (for an electric) ID4 is equipped with a single electric motor mounted to the rear axle. MotorTrend says that was good enough to propel its test model to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds.

Hyundai Ioniq 5
Hyundai Media Center

Hyundai Ioniq 5

Available: Now

Horsepower: 170

Range: 269 miles

Starting price: $45,000

Hyundai isn’t offering much information on this crossover SUV, other than it's to be offered in rear-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations. Hyundai is taking refundable $100 deposits if you’d like to be among the first to get one.

Volvo XC40 Recharge
Volvo Car Corporation

Volvo XC40 Recharge

Available: Now

Horsepower: 402

Range: 208 miles

Starting price: $58,750

This version of the XC40 subcompact SUV features two electric motors that provide it with more horsepower than a turbocharged gas-powered T5 version.

Lordstown Endurance

Available: Now

Horsepower: 600

Range: 250 miles

Starting price: $52,500

The startup says it has lots of orders for the Endurance — being built in a former GM plant in Lordstown, Ohio — but problems in upper management raised questions about the operation. The company has built two vehicles for customers, with a third on its way, and aims to produce 50 trucks by year-end.

Nissan Ariya
Nissan Motor Corporation

Nissan Ariya

Available: Now

Horsepower: Up to 389

Range: 300 miles

Starting price: $40,000

The Ariya is the Nissan's second fully electric vehicle, building on the Leaf hatchback model that hit the road in 2010. Car and Driver says Nissan’s semi-autonomous driving system is included, as well as a “dual front/rear motor drive configuration.”

Lexus RZ 450e
Lexus Toyota Motor Sales

Lexus RZ 450e

Expected: Early 2023

Horsepower: 312

Range: Up to 225 miles

Starting price: $55,000

The first Lexus EV, the RZ 450e shares its platform with the Toyota bZ4X and Subaru Solterra twins. Though it shares it battery pack with the bZ4X, Car and Driver says the Lexus' powertrain is more powerful dual-motor setup. It also sports a posher cabin and more upscale exterior styling.

The Oak Park, Michigan, startup’s slogan is “Reinventing trucks, not just electrifying them,” and it says it’s building the only all-electric Class 3 trucks on the planet with a dual-motor drivetrain, best-in-class horsepower, and 15-inch ground clearance.

Bollinger B2

Bollinger B2

Available: Now

Horsepower: 614

Range: 200 miles

Starting price: $125,000

The B2 is the pickup truck configuration of the B1, built on the same cab system and drivetrain but with a large cargo bed that extends through the entire vehicle — a full 19 feet, 4 inches, with the liftgate open. The windshield, glass, doors, and roof panels are removable on both models.

Jeep Wrangler Magneto 2.0 EV

Jeep Wrangler Magneto 2.0 EV

Expected: 2024

Horsepower: 625

Range: Unknown

Price: Unknown

Like Ford, Chevrolet, and other makes, Jeep has plans to make an all-electric version of one its most popular vehicles, the Wrangler. The plan calls 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.

Kia EV6
Kia Media

Kia EV6

Available: Now

Horsepower: 577

Range: 300 miles

Starting price: $41,400

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.

Mercedes-Benz EQA

Mercedes-Benz EQA

Available: Now

Horsepower: 280

Range: 250 miles

Starting price: $57,000

This is the smallest vehicle in the automaker’s lineup of electric vehicles — the EQ family. Car and Driver says the stats on this one are just a guess right now based on the European version.

Mercedes-Benz EQB
Daimler Media

Mercedes-Benz EQB

Available: Now

Horsepower: 225-288

Range: 250 miles

Starting price: $54,400

The EQB is “a close sibling to the gasoline-powered GLB crossover,” Kelley Blue Book says. The cabin is spacious, though the third-row seat is "extremely snug" Car and Driver says, adding that the EQB's interior is nicely finished and "features lovely rose-gold interior accents" like the other EQ models.

Mercedes-Benz G-Class EQG
Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz G-Class EQG

Expected: 2024

Horsepower: Unknown

Range: Unknown

Starting price: $150,000

The EQG is still a concept vehicle, but Car and Driver says to expect the same boxy styling as the G-Class it's based on, along with four electric motors, one for each wheel, and a stealthy price tag that has made the G-Class a status symbol for celebrities. 

Rivian R1S
Rivian

Rivian R1S

Available: Now

Horsepower: Up to 835

Range: 260 to 320 miles

Starting price: $72,500

Rivian’s electric SUV model shares the same platform as the R1T, though it can’t tow as much (7,700 pounds), but it seats up to seven passengers to the truck’s five. The company is taking reservations for the first models, which are expected to arrive in late 2023.

Mazda MX-30
Mazda

Mazda MX-30

Available: Now

Horsepower: 144

Range: 100 miles

Starting price: $33,470

Mazda chose to focus on fast charging rather than range in creating the MX-30. It's battery can go from 20% to 80% in 36 minutes, and the car comes with a 120-volt charger that can used with any household outlet. Sold only in California, the MX-30 is Mazda's first EV, and apparently, it's quite popular, with Mazda noting that all 2022 models have sold out.

Hercules Alpha
Hercules Electric Vehicles

Hercules Alpha

Expected: 2023

Horsepower: Up to 1,000

Range: 300-plus miles

Starting price: Unknown

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.

BMW iX
BMW Group

BMW iX

Expected: 2023

Horsepower: 516

Range: 300 miles

Starting price: $84,195

The iX went on sale in Europe in early 2022, “intended as a flagship for BMW’s expanded ‘i’ family of electrified vehicles,” Car and Driver said. The company’s first all-electric compact SUV is about the same size as the X5 Sports Activity Vehicle, but an M60 high-performance variant is expected with 600 horsepower. 

GMC Hummer EV Pickup

GMC Hummer EV SUV

Expected: Early 2023

Horsepower: 1,000

Range: 350-plus miles

Starting price: $85,000

GMC was expected to roll out SUV and pickup versions of the Hummer in 2021, but the pandemic got in the way. Production on the SUV is now expected to begin early in 2023, with GM closing reservations after receiving more than 90,000 requests for the vehicle.

Porsche Macan

Porsche Macan EV

Expected: 2023

Horsepower: Unknown

Range: Unknown

Starting price: around $58,000

An electric version of Porsche’s popular Macan crossover is expected on a platform with similar 800-volt architecture found in the Taycan electric sedan, but with better range, Car and Driver says. 

Canoo Pickup Truck
Canoo

Canoo Pickup Truck

Expected: 2023 or 2024

Horsepower: 500-plus

Range: 200-plus miles

Starting price: Unknown

This ultra-modern-looking all-wheel-drive vehicle is a little smaller than the typical midsize pickup truck, says Car and Driver, but the manufacturer promises a bed that can extend from 6 to 8 feet and a payload capacity of 1,800 pounds. Preorders have started, with production to begin in the final months of 2022. Pricing for a similar van model is expected to start at $34,750, with production scheduled to start in 2023.

Volkswagen ID. Life
Volkswagen

Volkswagen ID. Life

Expected: 2025

Horsepower: unknown

Range: 248 miles

Starting price: $24,000

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.
