New electric cars 2021: what’s happening and when? Car News

Kia EV6

Kia is expected to launch 11 new electric vehicles by 2025, and the EV6 crossover is the first bespoke electric vehicle the South Korean company has ever made. Set to be unveiled in its entirety soon, the EV6 will be a sister car to Hyundai’s Ioniq 5, based on an all-new platform and initially offering around 310 miles of electric range with a 72.6 kWh battery. The company would aim for 500 miles down the line, while the high-speed 800V charge should deliver a full battery in under 20 minutes.

The first official photos showed that the EV6 derives its influence from the design of the Imagine by Kia concept revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. There is some substance to the appearance too, with 0-62 mph taking around 5.0 seconds.

Mercedes-Benz EQB

Upon arrival, the EQB will be an electric version of Mercedes’ GLB SUV. Sales in the UK are not expected to start until 2022 and there is very little information on the kind of performance customers can expect. A 60 kWh battery is rumored to have a potential range of around 310 miles.

It is also unclear whether the EQB will retain the seven-seat option seen in the GLB.

Mercedes-Benz EQS

The S-Class of electric cars, as Mercedes-Benz is launching, won’t arrive until the final stages of 2021, but it promises to be a tech-laden limousine that can keep pace with the Porsche Taycan when it does. Production will take place alongside the S-Class at the company’s plant in Sindelfingen, Germany. As such, it’s no surprise that the EQS features the same 11.9-inch touchscreen and 12.3-inch digital instrument display as the S-Class.

An AMG performance version is also expected to arrive the following year with up to 600 horsepower. A range of 435 miles is also targeted, which puts it on a collision course with the Tesla Model S as well as the Taycan.

Tesla Model S Throw

Long promised by Tesla boss Elon Musk, the Model S Plaid will go into production in the second half of 2021 and challenge Porsche’s Taycan Turbo S for the electric sedan crown. It will use three engines to produce around 1,100 horsepower and is capable of 0 to 60 mph in under 2.0 seconds. Top speed is expected to be 200 mph, with Tesla claiming it will be the most powerful and fastest production car in the world.
