14 Upcoming 2024 Electric Cars We’re Excited For


Even though many are yet to fully embrace electric cars, automakers are gradually transitioning, and in a few years, things will be very different. Whether you are big on sustainability or you are just jumping on the bandwagon, it would interest you to know there are plenty of EVs rolling down the assembly lines of well-established brands. The following is a sneak peek of new electric cars coming out in 2024, exploring everything from muscle EVs to three-row SUVs. Be sure to also check out our list of previously existing models that are getting electrified in 2024.

14-Polestar 5 (ETA: Early 2024)

2024 Polestar 5 on the road

Expected Features

  • Dual-motor powertrain with 884 hp
  • New bonded aluminum chassis and 800-volt electrical architecture
  • Sustainable interior materials

The Polestar 5 was first unveiled as a Precept concept car in 2020 at the Geneva Auto Show, and now Polestar has confirmed it will enter into production for the 2024 model year. As the first Polestar car built on an 800-volt electrical architecture and bonded aluminum chassis, the upcoming 5 will be the first Polestar vehicle that doesn’t share a platform with Volvo at all.

You can expect the 2024 new electric car to take the form of a grand touring sedan with a sleek liftback that puts it in competition with the Tesla Model S, Porsche Taycan, and Lucid Air. But it will deliver sports car-like performance, thanks to the dual high-output electric motors that unleash 884 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque.

13-Cadillac Escalade IQ (ETA: Summer 2024)

Expected Features

  • 450 miles of range
  • Cadillac Arrival mode
  • 55-inch curved infotainment display
  • 40-speaker AKG audio system
  • 4-wheel steering

Like the standard Escalade, the Escalade IQ offers a huge, family-friendly cabin with three rows of seats and ample space for luggage. Juice for the large SUV comes from a 200 kWh Ultium battery pack. The massive battery promises up to 450 miles of driving range. Thanks to an 800-volt architecture, the Escalade IQ can reach up to 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes. With up to 750 hp and 785 lb-ft on tap, the new electric car can do 0-60 mph in less than 5.0 seconds. Furthermore, it can do cool tricks like walking diagonally.

12-Canoo Pickup (ETA: 2024)

Canoo Pickup Truck

Expected Features

  • Multi-accessory power plant
  • Flip-down work benches
  • Functional and configurable cargo bed
  • 200-plus miles of range

Canoo is one of the electric car companies that builds affordable electric cars. Its first car, the Lifestyle Vehicle, starts below $40,000 just like the Fisker Ocean. Set to arrive in 2024, the Canoo Pickup promises a world of innovative features such as an expandable cargo bed and a power station.

In addition, it will offer up to 500 hp and more than 200 miles of driving range on a full charge. Buyers will have a choice of either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The Canoo Pickup’s payload capacity is 1,800 pounds while its direct competition will be other all-electric pickups. With everything it has on offer, the Canoo Pickup is worth waiting for.

11-Porsche Macan EV (ETA: 2024)

Black Porsche Macan EV on track

Expected Features

  • Sportiest model in the segment with improved aerodynamics
  • 603 horsepower
  • 800-volt architecture

The Macan has been Porsche’s bestseller since 2016, so an all-electric version will set the gold standard for future EVs from the German automaker. According to Porsche, the upcoming EV will ride on the new Premium Platform Electric developed in partnership with Audi, and just like the Taycan, the Macan will adopt an 800-volt architecture. This should cut down the Macan’s recharging time and improve its range.

For the new Macan EV, Porsche focuses on three areas: efficiency, performance, and longevity. And since aerodynamics plays a huge role in efficiency and performance, you can expect the 2024 Macan EV to be a bit different from its gas-powered counterpart. For more information on this upcoming model, check out our article covering everything we know about the Macan EV so far.

10-Jeep Recon (ETA: 2024)

Green 2024 Jeep Recon offroad

Expected Features

  • Boxy shape with retractable soft top
  • Off-road tires
  • 4-wheel drive configuration

At first glance, any off-road SUV enthusiast should be able to tell the 2024 Jeep Recon draws inspiration from the Wrangler. All the midsize SUV retains the Wrangler’s retractable soft top, boxy shape, removable doors, and off-road prowess, it brings an electric twist to the table.

For now, Jeep hasn’t officially revealed anything about the powertrain setup and other hardware components of the Recon, but Kelley Blue Book says you can expect a 4-wheel drive setup, locking axles, skid plates, and off-road tires. For more information, check out everything we know about the Jeep Recon model so far.

9-Jeep Wagoneer S (ETA: 2024)

Black 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S

Expected Features

  • Improved aerodynamics with a big rear wing
  • 400-mile range
  • 0-60 MPH time of 3.5 seconds

Since Jeep claims the Wrangler 4xe is the best-selling plug-in hybrid in the U.S., it makes perfect sense that its next step will be to electrify its entire portfolio. And the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S is a step in that direction. But unlike the off-road Recon, the Wagoneer S is a performance-oriented SUV.

According to the head of the Jeep brand for North America, Jim Morrison, the Wagoneer S finds itself in the “Trackhawk territory,” with a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds. As if that’s not impressive enough, Jeep aims to hit a 400-mile range with the American EV. But you have to wait until 2024 to get the all-electric Wrangler S, which Kelley Blue Book says starts at $54,595. For more information, check out our coverage of everything we know about the Jeep Wagoneer EV so far.

8-2024 Acura ZDX (ETA: Spring 2024)

2024 Acura ZDX Type S

Expected Features

  • 0-60 in under 5 seconds
  • 325-mile range
  • High-resolution 11” digital instrument cluster and 11.3” center display

Drawing inspiration from the Precision EV Concept, the 2024 ZDX is Acura’s first all-electric vehicle. The ZDX nameplate was first used for a sloped roof Acura SUV with a 3.7-liter V6 that was last seen in 2013. Re-emerging for the 2024 model year, the new ZDX comes with a single electric motor and a 100 kWh battery pack.

While the 2013 ZDX had a sticker price of $51,815, the new model, which shares the same platform as the Cadillac Lyriq, should start around $60,000, according to Acura. There’s also a ZDX Type S model, which starts around $70,000 and delivers up to 500 hp. For more information, check out our coverage of everthing we know about the Acura ZDX so far.

7-Cadillac Celestiq (ETA: Early 2024)

Expected Features

  • 300 miles of range
  • Digital micromirror headlight
  • 55-inch curved OLED display
  • Smart glass roof
  • Ultra Cruise system

The upcoming Celestiq will debut as Cadillac’s most ambitious project and also as the most advanced and most expensive model from the automaker. For motivation, the ultra-luxury Caddy will pack two electric motors for an output of 600 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough juice to send the Celestiq from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds, according to Cadillac.

Inside the cabin, the hand-built Celestiq features high-quality materials like open-pore wood, soft leather, and brushed metal. Audiophiles will also appreciate the 38-speaker AKG Studio Reference stereo system. With its list of features, the one-of-a-kind Celestiq is one of the best electric cars worth waiting for. For more information, check out our everything we know about the Cadillac Celestiq so far.

6-Dodge Charger Daytona SRT (ETA: 2024)

Black 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Electric Muscle Car

Expected Features

  • Synthetic sound amplifier
  • Classic muscle-car looks
  • Up to 590 horsepower

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT EV is one of the coolest electric cars coming in 2024. Even though muscle car purists might need some time to get used to an electric muscle car, Dodge tries its best to make the Charger Daytona SRT EV similar to the V8-powered as much as possible.

Going by the SRT EV Concept, the upcoming production version should come with a synthetic sound amplifier that produces just about the same exhaust noise as the SRT Hellcat, which muscle car enthusiasts have become addicted to over the years. The new Daytona SRT EV will offer three power levels, with output going as high as 590 hp. For more information, check out our coverage of everything we know about the Dodge Charger EV so far.

  • 500 miles of range
  • 14,000 pounds maximum towing capacity
  • Innovative frunk
  • 14.5-inch central touchscreen

To stay up to date on the latest info, keep checking our coverage of everthing we know about the Ram 1500 REV so far.

Boasting a new 800-volt architecture, the truck can gain up to 110 miles with 10 minutes of fast charging. Besides doing truck things like towing 14,000 pounds, the Ram 1500 REV can also double as an emergency generator for your home. With the targeted output of 654 hp and 620 lb-ft, the EV truck will be good for a 0-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds. It is worth waiting for.

4-VinFast VF 7 (ETA: Early 2024)

Silver 2024 VinFast VF 7 by a water body

Expected Features

  • Up to 268 miles maximum range
  • Dual-motor AWD system
  • 15-inch display on the Plus model

The VinFast VF 7 is another 2024 electric car to expect in the U.S., and it’s the handiwork of a Vietnamese startup. The VF 7 is just about the same size as the bestselling Toyota RAV4, so it will be exciting to see how well it’s received with its full electrification. It made its U.S. debut in 2022, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, but you will have to wait until early 2024 to snap up the compact electric SUV.

The compact SUV is small enough for street roads and big enough not to be intimidated by larger vehicles on the open road. The Vietnamese automaker hints that two models will be offered for the VF 7: 201-hp single-motor Eco and 348-hp dual-motor Plus.

  • Three rows with 12.9 cubic feet of cargo space
  • 300-mile range

The 2024 EX90 is not the first EV from Volvo, but it’s bigger than the XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge and will set the standard for what you can expect from the Swedish automaker in the future. It’s built on the same platform as the new Polestar 3 all-electric SUV. The luxurious flagship model will be big enough for a family of seven and packed with the latest safety tech from Volvo. The EX90 will come with a pair of electric motors that put out a total of 496 hp and 671 lb-ft of torque.

According to Kelley Blue Book, the Eletre will cost around $100,000 and will be ready for delivery in the U.S. in summer 2023.

Lotus has revealed that its first four-door vehicle will be available in three flavors: Eletre, Eletre S, and Eletre R. The base Eletre is expected to churn out 603 hp, while the top-ranging Eletre R will make 905 hp.
