Tesla Model Y and other vehicle updates for 2020

Last year brought several new all-electric vehicles and many automakers have announced exciting new vehicles in coming years, including the Rivian pickup truck and Ford’s all-electric F-150 and Mustang Mach-E, but unfortunately, those are not likely to be released this year. While 2020’s new offerings aren’t as robust as last year’s, there are some great developments available now and coming soon.

Tesla Model Y

Tesla’s long-awaited Model Y should be making its first deliveries later this year. This compact crossover will have a range of 280–300 miles and start at $48,000. Additional features include seating for up to seven people and going from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.  


Polestar 2

Polestar, a performance brand from Volvo, is set to launch the Polestar 2 sometime in 2020. The vehicle is all-electric with a range of 275 miles and a starting price of $63,000.


Mini Electric

Mini’s first all-electric offering will be hitting dealerships this spring. At only 110 miles per charge, it’s one of the lowest all-electric ranges on the market, but it’s starting price of $29,900 has it tied with the Nissan LEAF for one of the least expensive vehicles, as well. 

Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring

The first electric offering from Lincoln, the new Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring plug-in hybrid starts at $70,000 and gets 21 miles on a single charge before switching over to gas. While this is not a game changer, there are reports that Lincoln will be delivering an all-electric SUV within the next few years.


Land Rover Range Rover PHEV

Land Rover is also launching its first electric offering, the Range Rover PHEV and PHEV Sport. The Range Rover PHEV Sport starts at $79,000 and has an electric range of 19 miles before switching to gas.


Hyundai Ioniq Electric

The 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Electric is not a new vehicle, but it is getting a substantial boost on its electric range to 170 electric miles, up from 124 in previous models. Hyundai is reporting that the 2020 model should be hitting dealerships by March.


Chevrolet Bolt

Like the Ioniq, the 2020 Chevy Bolt also got a range boost, up from 238 miles to 259 miles, giving it the highest range on a non-Tesla vehicle available today.

    Volkswagen is less than a year away from reinventing its lineup with a new subset of electric vehicles dubbed “I.D.” In 2020, the German automaker will begin selling its I.D. EVs; the lineup includes a Tesla Model S-rivaling sedan, a few cool-looking crossovers, a hatchback, and even a reborn Microbus.

    By 2022, most, if not all of these vehicles will be available to consumers. Some, like the I.D. hatchback, VW confines to Europe. But nearly all of the I.D. models should make their way Stateside. So, ahead of VW’s I.D. EV onslaught, here’s everything you need to know about each model, and when you’ll be able to buy them.

    What’s the latest from VW?. They’re supposed to be transitioning to all electric vehicles. I’m particularly interested in the VW Buzz.

    Why isn’t the bmw i3 ever on the cover or showcased? It’s one of the few with a REx, has a marquis name and is certainly futuristically styled.
