New 2022 cars: what’s coming and when Car News

The next-generation Countryman compact SUV will arrive soon after and is expected to grow to more closely match its BMW X1 sibling, with a range of petrol, plug-in hybrid and all-electric powertrains.

Enlarging it is part of a plan to literally expand the Mini range, making room for a new small SUV and a Chinese-made city car that is set to revive the Minor name.

Porsche Macan EV and Audi Q6 E-Tron: Porsche pulled off electrification on its first attempt, but its second is arguably a tougher challenge, as it’s not an entirely new proposition, but a reimagining of the wildly popular Macan SUV.

Make no mistake, though: the Macan EV will be an entirely new car built on an all-new EV platform. Co-developed by Porsche and Audi, the PPE enables ultra-fast charging and high-performance engines. In the Macan, we’re expecting a dual-motor, four-wheel-drive setup to deliver 700 hp and 750 lb-ft of torque.

Audi won’t be far behind its sister brand in using the PPE platform, with its all-new Q6 E-tron due shortly after the Macan EV. While Audi already has a burgeoning range of SUVs, these use either an adapted ICE platform or the more common MQB EV platform.

Complementing the petrol-powered Q5, the Q6 will offer 800V charging, a range of over 300 miles and possibly a sporty RS version.
