Hey everyone, and welcome back to another episode of CarsJade! Buckle up because we’ve got a jam-packed episode counting down the 10 most anticipated electric SUVs set to launch in 2024. These upcoming SUVs range from affordable family EVs to six-figure super SUVs. There’s something here for everyone, whether you’re looking to go electric for the first time or want to upgrade to the latest and greatest. Let’s get right into the list!
Kicking things off at number ten, we have the highly anticipated Lucid Gravity
Electric SUV. It’s expected to be released towards the end of 2024. The Gravity SUV is designed to be as powerful as a sports car, similar to its Air sedan counterpart. Moreover, early sketches of the vehicle show it has a futuristic design. Lucid aims to make Gravity a top choice for people looking for a luxurious electric SUV.
Next up at number 9 is the Honda Prologue!
The Prologue mid-size SUV is Honda’s first electric vehicle (EV). It’s a big deal for Honda because they’ve never made an EV before. They’re using technology from GM called the Ultium platform and batteries to give the Prologue a range of up to 300 miles on a single charge. The SUV will have a clean and practical design both inside and outside. The Prologue kicks off Honda’s ambitious plan to sell only EVs by 2040 in the U.S.
Sliding into 8th place is the Polestar 4.
The low-slung five-seat Polestar 4 evokes the vibes of an electric Porsche Macan or Tesla Model Y. Powered by a dual-motor AWD powertrain, the Polestar 4 can churn out 544 horsepower and click 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds in the top-spec model.
Polestar estimates over 300 miles of driving range from the 94 kWh battery, which positions it as a legitimate long-range EV. With Google built-in for navigation and entertainment, minimalist Scandinavian design inside and out, and an ample range, the Polestar 4 checks a lot of boxes for an electric performance SUV. And starting at around $60,000, it brings the brand into more affordable territory.
Now, onto number 7, we have the Ethereal Lotus Eletre SUV.
The Eletre is a futuristic and unique-looking car. Just by looking at its smooth shape and interesting angles, you can tell it’s something very different.
Like a supercar, the Eletre is incredibly powerful, with 603 horsepower and 523 lb-ft of torque. According to Lotus, it can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than 3 seconds, thanks to a special launch feature and all-wheel drive. It’s also made from lightweight carbon fiber, has smart technology to handle different road conditions, and can change its height using air suspension. This makes it one of the fastest and best-handling SUVs ever made. Even with all this power, it can still go 315 miles on a single charge because of its big 109 kWh battery.
But there’s a catch: it’s going to be very expensive, probably over $100,000. So, it’s a car for very wealthy people who want a glimpse of what the future of electric cars could be like.
Alright, cruising into the number 6 spot is the Kia EV9
Inspired by the bold and boxy 2021 EV9 concept car, this production 3-row SUV targets a more affordable price bracket versus luxury rivals. Kia is still playing its cards close to the vest on powertrain specs and pricing.
Kia claims the EV9 will deliver up to 300 miles of driving range. Combined with funky styling and lots of passenger room, the EV9 could become a compelling 3-row electric alternative to Kia’s popular gas-powered Telluride SUV.
Moving into our top 5, we have the Hyundai Ioniq 7
Hyundai’s edgy design could make the production Ioniq 7 just as wild as the concept we’ve seen in photos. Built on the same platform as the fun-to-drive Ioniq 5 hatchback, the 7 should deliver an expansive interior in a sleek 3-row package.
Expect the Ioniq 7 to feel more like a living room on wheels than a traditional SUV. And with up to 300 miles of driving range, the Ioniq 7 checks the boxes for both space and range. Hyundai seems poised to deliver a head-turning family EV with the production-bound Ioniq 7 sometime in 2024.
Coming in at number 4 is the Volvo EX90
the brand’s first EV designed from scratch. Volvo promises class-leading safety and a gorgeous interior with sustainable materials on the EX90 flagship.
There are two expected variants, one with dual-motor AWD powertrain outputting 402 hp and 486 lb-ft torque. The other twin motor system ups that to 496 hp with 671 lb-ft torque. Expect 0-60 mph in under 5 seconds. Volvo anticipates around 300 miles of range from the EX90’s 100 kWh battery.
The bronze medal goes to the hand-built Cadillac Celestiq ultra-luxury EV
With its eye-catching design and bespoke customization, Cadillac aims to recapture its “standard of the world” status with the Celestiq. But with a rumored $300,000+ price tag, this stylish hatchback likely remains a distant dream for all but the ultra-wealthy.
Now for our runner-up: the Audi Q6 e-tron coming in 2024
The dual-motor Q6 e-tron delivers up to 500hp and 315 miles of range, slotting between Audi’s existing Q4 and Q8 electric SUVs. The Q6 is smooth, quiet, and rapid – everything you expect in an electric Audi crossover.
The concept model’s sleek sheet metal and LED light graphics provide a clean yet aggressive look that will transition nicely to production. Inside, Audi’s excellent build quality and materials complement the latest touchscreen infotainment tech.
The Q6 e-tron’s 93 kWh battery enables a maximum driving range of around 300 miles. With the brand’s signature sophistication blended into a smarter electric package, the Q6 e-tron looks primed to impress as Audi charges toward its electric future.
And finally, the number 1 electric SUV we’re most excited about in 2024 is the Acura ZDX
Acura is bringing back an old name for their new electric car, the ZDX. This is the first time Acura is making an electric car. And the ZDX looks ready to make a splash as a premium electric crossover.
The Acura has a single-motor rear-wheel drive system that generates 340 horsepower. Opt for the high-powered Type S variant, and you get a potent 500 hp and AWD from dual motors.
The EV rides on GM’s Ultium platform, just like the Cadillac Lyriq. Acura’s first EV promises brisk acceleration, sharp handling, and 325 miles of range. The A-Spec and Type S models could start around $60,000 – an attainable price point for a premium electric crossover. Acura seems ready to lead the luxury EV race with the upcoming ZDX.
So those are our picks for the top 10 best electric SUVs coming out in 2024 that are worth the wait! From Lucid Gravity to Acura’s electrified return to form with the ZDX, these EVs represent exciting things ahead. Let us know which 2024 electric vehicles you’re most pumped for in the comments!
