Electric Vehicles Expected to Launch in Upcoming Years

The electric vehicle market has undergone significant changes for the 2023 model year, offering more options for buyers. This trend is expected to continue as automakers add EVs to their lineups that could replace traditional gasoline vehicles.
Here are some new EVs planned or anticipated for the US market through 2026, excluding specialty vehicles. Information on some vehicles is limited, while others have already been displayed as concepts or near-production models. Due to the nature of new EVs, expected arrival dates may change and are listed for the calendar year, not necessarily the model year. The extension of the federal EV subsidy program favoring North American production may also impact plans or timing for vehicles manufactured outside the region. Listed prices do not include destination fees
