Electric vehicles are becoming a popular sight on American roads with many options already available to consumers. In the very near future, we are planning to see an explosion of new electric technology. Here are 10 future electric cars to be on the lookout for.
Audi e-Tron Quattro SUV
Leading the lineup is the Audi e-Tron Quattro SUV, which is a luxury-class sport SUV that is all electric. This amazing vehicle will come equipped with three motors; one of them drives the front axle while the other two work on the rear. Altogether they have a total output of 320 kW. It’s the future of electric in the United States.
The driver has the ability to gain 370 kW and 590 lb-ft of torque while boosting, which gives the Audi the feel of a sports car even though it’s an SUV. When the pedal is floored, the e-Tron Quattro accelerates to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and quickly reaches its top speed of 130 mph.
The Audi’s lithium battery is stored in the floor and offers a range of more than 300 miles. On top of that, a full charge takes just about 50 minutes. It also features a system that guides it into the right position when charging.
Charging stations aren’t even the only way to recharge with this tech-savvy SUV. Head out on a sunny day and let the solar roof panel provide electricity! This 2019 SUV is set to be released in Europe this fall with no word yet on an American launch.
BMW iX3 Electric
While it is too early to catch a glimpse of the BMW iX3 Electric just yet, reports are being circulated that it is planned to look just like the BMW X3 SUV. It will be available in two separate forms: the plug-in hybrid or a fully electric SUV model.
The hybrid version is expected to have a pair of exhaust pipes and it will be powered by a 2.0-liter gas engine paired with an electric motor. These combined, you can expect to see close to 300 horsepower and exciting acceleration. The BMW iX3 will also come complete with four-wheel drive and should be able to travel 30 miles on electric alone.
We have yet to get the full details on the fully electric model, but we are convinced it will be one of the best future electric vehicles available. BMW is known for the sporty nature of their vehicles, so it is unlikely that this large car will be anything short of brisk. If plans pan out the way we think, we could be looking at a 0-60mph time of about five seconds with a driving range of 300 miles or more.
Needless to say, this is one vehicle we are yearning to find out more about.
