Even with a pandemic throwing off factory operations, in-person events, and reveal schedules, many car manufacturers are releasing their EVs this year.
Here are the EVs that should make it to the market by the end of this year:
Ford Mustang Mach-E
With a revamped Mustang, Ford is stepping into the world of electric vehicles. The Mustang Mach-E will give about 300 miles on a single charge and is expected to be entirely battery-powered. However, the First Edition is expected to come out with a 270-mile range. The limited number of the First Edition, however, are all reserved, according to Ford. The Mach-E Select, the base version, will roll out later into the year. It has a smaller battery and a 230-mile range.
Almost a year ago, Elon Musk revealed what the first pickup truck by Tesla would look like. While most of us are still trying to accept the angular, dystopian design of the Cybertruck, the first models are expected to be released by the end of 2021. Based on the pre-order reports, the first sightings will be of the popular dual- and tri-motor models with 300 and 500 miles of range and all-wheel drive. However, the single-motor trucks with a 250-mile range will only be released in 2022.
In 2019, even before Rivian thought of delivering its first vehicles, Amazon backed the company and ordered several EV vans, and used them for its delivery business. The Rivian R1T is expected to hit the road in 2021, along with the company’s pickup truck. Once the truck is released, Rivian also plans on releasing an electric SUV.
GMC Hummer EV
The discontinued Hummer is back, as a giant EV yielding about 350 miles on a single charge. The already sold-out Edition 1 is expected to arrive by the end of 2021. Reportedly, more affordable versions will also trickle out every year until the spring of 2024.
