Exciting EVs Available in America Today — And Tomorrow

© Ford Motor CompanyExpanding Electric Vehicles
Every year new electric vehicles enter the American market, with choices expanding to include luxury cars, crossovers, high-performance cars and even pickup trucks. Historically, electric vehicles are nothing new in America — the first EVs were on the road in the late 1800s, but they gave way to the internal combustion engine and inexpensive gasoline. America’s interest in electric vehicles waxed and waned throughout the 20th century, often in response to world conflicts that resulted in fuel crises. Today, new high-capacity batteries and advances in other technologies continue to increase electric vehicle range and performance, and now more than 30 all-electric models are either on sale or coming soon. What follows are the current — and upcoming — electric vehicles in America. Note that prices listed do not reflect any local or federal subsidies.

Base MSRP: $65,900
Range: 204 miles
MPGe (city / hwy / combined): 74 / 73 / 74
After showing electric concept vehicles for years, Audi’s first all-electric production e-tron went on sale as a 2019 model. A premium 5-seat midsize SUV, e-tron has a stylish, aerodynamic design with a familiar but uniquely enclosed grille. Audi e-tron is propelled by two powerful electric motors — one at each axle — creating a new generation of quattro electric all-wheel drive that can adjust the amount of torque delivered to each axle for ideal balance according to driving conditions. The new e-tron is quick — with up to 402 horsepower available, it will sprint to 60 mph in about 5.5 seconds.

The 2022 Audi e-tron GT quattro is Audi’s new all-electric, high-performance grand tourer designed to take on the top electric performance sedans. The e-tron GT is powered by two electric motors, one at the front axle and one at the rear axle. The front motor produces 235 horsepower and the rear motor produces 429 horsepower for total system output of 469 horsepower (up to 522 horsepower in overboost mode) and 464 lb-ft of torque (472 lb-ft with overboost). The e-tron GT will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and has a top track speed of 152 mph.

Base MSRP: $44,450
Range: 153 miles
MPGe (city / hwy / combined): 124 / 102 / 113
BMW’s electric i3 has been on the market since 2014, and for 2019 the innovative little car received a larger 120 Ah battery. With more juice on tap, the i3 can now travel almost double the range it had when introduced. Built on an aluminum frame with a carbon fiber body, the i3 has a unique interior trimmed in recycled or renewable materials. The small car features rear-hinged rear doors for easy access to all seating positions. Motivation comes from a 170-horsepower electric motor that delivers a zero-to-60 mph time of slightly more than 7 seconds. BMW added the i3s to the lineup for 2019, offering a bit more power as well as a sportier chassis and more responsive performance.

Base MSRP: $55,400
Range: 300 miles (estimate)
MPGe (city / hwy / combined): Not yet rated
With a design based on the recently updated 4 Series Gran Coupe, the i4 will initially be offered in two trim levels: i4 eDrive40 and i4 M50. The BMW i4 eDrive40 uses a single electric motor to drive the rear wheels, with output rated at 335 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. The high-performance i4 M50 upgrades with two motors — a 255-horspower unit driving the front wheels, and a 308-horsepower rear motor for a combined output of 536 horsepower and 586 lb-ft of torque (the M50 sprints to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds). Since the i4’s electric motor requires little airflow for cooling, the large BMW kidney grille is actually a closed surface. The i4 is expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2022.

Base MSRP: $83,200
Range: 300 miles
MPGe (city / hwy / combined): Not yet rated
Similar in size to the BMW X5, the iX introduces a new look for BMW crossovers with a futuristic take on the traditional kidney grille and twin headlights — the full LED headlights are the slimmest ever used on a BMW, and the hood mimics the grille design for a 3D effect. Expected to go on sale in early 2022, the iX will initially be offered as the xDrive50, powered by two electric motors — one for each axle — with a total output of 516 horsepower, allowing the iX to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and achieve a top speed of 124 mph. The iX M60 will follow, packing more than 600 horsepower.

Range: 300+ miles (estimate)
MPGe (city / hwy / combined): Not yet rated
The first all-electric vehicle from the luxury division of General Motors, at launch LYRIQ will feature cutting-edge technology that combines a 12-module, 100 kWh (kilowatt-hour) battery pack and a rear-wheel-drive Ultium platform to deliver an estimated 340 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. LYRIQ also offers high-speed DC fast charging for public stations at 190 kW, which Cadillac estimates will add up to 76 miles of range in 10 minutes. For charging at home, LYRIQ offers a 19.2 kW charging module that requires installation of a 240 V 19.2 kW AC charging station, which can add up to 52 miles of range per hour of charge time. Using a standard household outlet will add about 3.5 miles of range per hour of charge.

Base MSRP: $31,995
Range: 259 miles
MPGe (city / hwy / combined): 131 / 109 / 120
When Chevrolet introduced the Bolt in 2017, it was the most affordable all-electric vehicle with a range of more than 200 miles. For 2022 Bolt receives styling updates and new features, but also adds the larger and bolder Bolt EUV electric crossover. Both Bolt EV and EUV are powered by the same drivetrain as the previous Bolt: an electric motor producing 200 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque delivered to the front wheels. The 65 kWh lithium-ion battery pack delivers an estimated 259 miles in the Bolt EV and 250 miles in the Bolt EUV. According to Chevrolet, a full charge takes about 7 hours with a Level 2 charger; with a DC fast charger 100 miles of range can be added in about 30 minutes.

Base MSRP: $39,974
Range: 230 miles
MPGe (city / hwy / combined): Not yet rated
The first all-electric F-150, the F-150 Lightning is powered by dual three-phase fixed magnet AC electric motors — one at each axle — so all Lightnings will be all-wheel drive. Total output for the extended-range Lightning is estimated at 563 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque — the most torque ever in a production F-150. Standard-range Lightnings will generate 426 horsepower but maintain the impressive 775 lb-ft of torque. The F-150 Lightning’s standard lithium-ion battery is expected to deliver a range of 230 miles; 300 miles for the extended-range option. A 48-amp Level 2 charger can fully charge the standard-range battery in about 10 hours. Prices start at $39,974 for an entry-level commercial F-150 Lightning, with the more popular XLT starting at $52,974.

Base MSRP: $79,995
Range: 250 to 350 miles
MPGe (city / hwy / combined): Not yet rated
General Motors brings back the Hummer name on an advanced all-electric truck under the GMC brand. Employing GM’s new Ultium Drive battery architecture, the foundation is a unique large-format pouch-style battery cell. For the Hummer EV Edition 1, two layers of vertical cells totaling 24 modules will allow an estimated 350+ mile range. This Hummer EV uses three electric drive motors to produce an estimated 1000 horsepower and — when multiplied through the drive unit gear ratios — more than 11,500 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. A single motor will power the front wheels, and two rear motors will independently power the rear wheels, with the ability to vary torque to each wheel; the motors can also be synced to simulate a locking differential. Reservations are already full for the $112,995 Edition 1, arriving by fall 2021.
