Dozens More EVs Coming in 2025 and 2026

by | December 29, 2023

At least 40 new battery-electric vehicles are due to reach U.S. showrooms in 2024 — and that’s a conservative estimate as we’ve had a number of surprises dropped on us by both domestic and foreign-owned brands. If anything, the flood of EV offerings will likely accelerate going forward. Here’s a look at some of the models we’re expecting in 2025 and 2026. Headlight.News checks out 45 of them.

More and more EVs are set to hit dealerships around the world in the years ahead. Some will feature styling similar the Nissan Hyper Punk concept’s edgy design. Check out what we see coming 2025 and 2026.

While EV sales growth may have slowed down a bit in recent months, automakers continue to race more options to market. This coming year will see at least 40 all-electric sedans, sports cars, SUVs and pickups reach U.S. showrooms.

Looking further down the road we’re anticipating at least as many new offerings over the two-year period, 2025 and 2026. But in light of slowing EV growth, some automakers are rethinking plans. In some cases, they’re delaying future entries, while some other programs have been cancelled, according to Sam Fiorani, lead analyst with AutoForecast Solutions.

volumes. That will determine what models will come out when,” added Fiorani, who helped us put this list together.

The further out you go, the more changes are likely. Some of these programs will be delayed, other EVs moved forward or added to the list. And, as is the case with several models on our list, new nameplates could eventually be chosen. That said, here are the EVs we see coming during the 2025-2026 timeframe:

Acura RDX

The luxury arm of Honda Motor Co. will just launch its first EV, the ZDX, in 2024. It’s expected to add an RDX-sized all-electric crossover in 2025. Acura is working on several other EVs but has made some strategic changes that could delay other entries until late in the decade.

Afeela Sedan

This joint venture pairing Sony and Honda was confirmed at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show and things appear to be moving fast. This all-electric sedan, with a cabin full of Sony infotainment gear is on the list to arrive by 2026.

Alfa Romeo Giulia and Milano

The Italian automaker has announced aggressive EV plans and two key products are set to arrive in 2025, including a battery-powered version of the familiar Giulia sedan, as well as the Milano. Sized smaller than the current Alfa Romeo Tonale, it arrives in 2025.

Bentley EXP 100 GT front 3-4 REL

Bentley’s EXP 100 GT concept could show up as part of the regular lineup in the near future.

Apple Titan EV

The high-tech behemoth has spent a decade dithering whether or not to launch a super-high-tech EV. Known internally as Project Titan, it finally appears to be working towards a real product that could be in showrooms by 2026.

Bentley Continental and Others

Bentley has committed to going all-electric by decade’s end, and that transition could happen faster than anticipated. At least five EVs are in the works replacing existing models like the Continental GT. They should begin rolling out sometime in 2025.

BMW i3 and Others

The 2025 Cadillac Optic in Monarch Orange.

The Bavarian automaker already has an assortment of all-electric models and there are more coming, including variants like the i5M. The critical debut is going to be the i3 coming in 2026. It’s not replacing the old city car but will serve as an electric 3 Series based on the Neue Klasse platform.

Cadillac Optiq and Vistiq

General Motors’ luxury arm also plans to go entirely electric this decade and has so far announced five EVs. The Escalade IQ and flagship Celestiq coming in 2024 will be joined the following year by the Caddy Optiq and Vistiq crossovers.

Chevrolet Corvette EV and CUV EV

For years, many industry watchers GM has considered spinning off a Corvette brand. It appears 2026 will bring a halfway measure a sub-brand including existing ‘Vette models, as well as an all-electric version of the sports car. Also in the works: a battery-powered crossover akin to Ford’s Mustang Model-E.

The Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray is currently the only hybrid model offered by General Motors.

Chevrolet Bolt and Tahoe

Chevy has a big year in 2024, with EV versions of the Silverado, Blazer and Equinox coming. In 2025 we expect to see an all-new version of the little Chevrolet Bolt that just ended production. It will use a version of GM’s new Ultium technology. So will the Chevy Tahoe EV coming in 2026.

Chrysler Airflow

First shown as a concept vehicle at CES 2020, the Chrysler Airflow is something of a modern, all-electric take on the maker’s pre-World War ultra-aerodynamic sedan. There’s some question about whether the name will hold when it goes into production in 2025.

Fisker Alaska, Pear, and Ronin

Chrysler Airflow Concept

Chrysler unveiled a “Graphite” variation of its all-electric Airflow Concept at the 2022 New York International Auto Show.

The California-based EV startup revealed an assortment of concept vehicles early this year covering a broad range of products. The Pear is an affordable crossover, the Ronin an electric hypercar, and the Alaska a battery pickup. Timing is fluid but they should start rolling out in 2025.

Ford “Low-Cost” Pickup

The Blue Oval manufacturer has an aggressive plan for EVs in the works — though it has pushed back timing as sales growth has slowed. Still, Ford is expected to add at least one more pickup by 2026, this one serving as the all-electric alternative to the Maverick as its most affordable EV truck.

GMC Yukon EV

General Motors’ “professional grade” brand has its own EV rampup in store. It began with the extreme GMC Hummer EV and, in late 2024 will add an electric version of the Sierra pickup. Next up: the Yukon EV arriving in 2026 — about the same time as the Chevy Tahoe with which it will share key components.

Honda CR-V EV

Honda — like sibling Acura — is making some big changes to its EV plans, in part due to the break up of a joint venture with GM. That appears to be pushing back some introductions … but we expect to see a Honda CR-V-sized EV arrive sometime late in 2026.

Watson with EV3 in LA

Kia VP Eric Watson unveils the EV3 concept at the LA Auto Show. It’s likely to become a production vehicle.

Jaguar GT

The British marque is in quiet mode, having killed off the EV version of its flagship XJ sedan, even as it shifts to an all-electric future. Precise timing is uncertain but the EV transition is likely to begin with the launch of a Grand Tourer in 2025, along with a midsize Jaguar crossover, similar to the current F-Pace.

Kia EV3

The South Korean carmaker, along with siblings Hyundai and Genesis, has outlined an aggressive electrification program. It’s currently unclear what the three will debut in 2025 and 2026, but one possibility is the EV3 crossover first shown at this year’s LA Auto Show. Think of it as a downsized version of the big EV9.

Lagonda All-Terrain

Lexus is readying to introduce an all-electric ES.

The Lagonda brand has long sat in the deep freeze but Aston Martin is finally thawing it out and plans to make it an all-electric sub-brand. Its return is expected to begin with the arrival of the Lagonda All-Terrain in 2026. It’s a sleek performance crossover first hinted at with a 2019 concept.

Lexus ES EV

The ES is one of the most important Lexus products, even as the brand’s momentum has shifted to its crossovers. As with most of its products, Toyota’s luxury brand now offers a hybrid version, but an all-electric ES is in the works. And it will likely ride on an all-new skateboard-style platform.

just what’s going to arrive in showrooms over the next few years — especially with parent Ford delaying some of its EV efforts. One of the more likely arrivals is an all-electric version of the three-row Lincoln Aviator.

Mercedes-Benz EQC

The tri-star brand continues to accelerate its shift to electric propulsion and still has a few gaps in its lineup, even as it pushes to offer an EV alternative to all its conventional models. We could see several additions in the U.S. in 2026, including the C-Class-sized EQC, as well as some electric vans.

Mini Cooper Electric

The British marque is replacing its original EV with a new version of the Cooper Electric. It gets some much-needed updates, starting with a larger battery pack and new motor drive system providing longer range and better performance.

Nissan Altima EV

Mini is heading to an electric future, and offered up a look at with the Mini Cooper SE convertible.

While it introduced the world’s first mass-production EV, the Leaf, a dozen years ago, Nissan has fallen behind in the race to electrify, launching its second model, the Ariya, just two years ago. It has more coming late in the decade but won’t introduce its next offering, an Altima-sized sedan, until late 2026.

Polestar 5 and 6

Volvo’s spinoff will offer nothing but battery-electric vehicles and, despite its modest sales, Polestar is expanding its lineup at a rapid pace. This coming year brings the launch of the Polestar 4 and it will follow with the Polestar 5, a sporty coupe sedan in 2025. The 884-hp Polestar 6 roadster follows in 2026.

Ram 1500 Ramcharger

Ram’s first EV, the 1500 REV pickup, arrives in late 2024. To overcome range and charging concerns, especially while towing, the 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger will offer an onboard generator to power its electric motors when the battery pack is drained. Also likely: a midsize EV pickup.

Range Rover SUV and Velar

Though the SUV brand hasn’t committed to going 100% electric, as has its sibling Jaguar, Land Rover will add a number of battery-powered models. A version of the flagship Range Rover SUV will arrive in 2025, and it will be followed a year later by an all-electric version of the Velar model.

Scout badge

The Scout brand will be arriving in a few years.

Scout SUV and Pickup

Volkswagen is bringing back to life the old International Scout brand and while it will go up against rugged off-road products like Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco, all scouts will be 100% electric. The first two entries will be a Bronco-sized SUV and a midsize pickup due in 2026.

Subaru Solterra+

The one thing we’re confident of is that this 3-row crossover won’t actually use the Solterra name when it comes to market in late 2026 or early 2027. But what we do know is that it will take the same approach as Subaru’s original Solterra and emerge as part of a joint venture with Toyota.

Tesla Roadster and Model 2

There are plenty of unanswered questions about the next two Tesla offerings. For one thing, will the exotic, gen-2 Roadster actually ever make it into production? Current speculation is yes, in 2026. More important will be the launch of the “affordable” Tesla Model 2, about the same time.

VW ID GTI Concept - front 3-4

“We’d like it, but not sure we can” make it work for the U.S. market, said one VW source.

Toyota bZ5X

Long skeptical of EVs and focused on hybrids and plug-ins, Toyota is now playing catch-up with key competitors and a 3-row SUV many refer to as the bZ5X seems the likely next entry, coming in 2026. As with the original bZ4X, it’s part of a joint venture with Subaru — and may also be shared with Mazda.

Volkswagen ID.2all and ID.GTI

VW has a big year coming with the long-awaited launch of the ID.Buzz microbus. The German automaker is rushing out a wave of EVs but continues to debate which it will add to the U.S. While it likely won’t import the tiny ID.2, crossover and performance variants, the ID.2all and ID.GTI may arrive in 2026.
