The EVs to look forward to in 2022

The EVs to look forward to in 2022


The electric vehicle race is really heating up. Already in 2021, we’ve seen countless battery-powered models hit the market.


BMW’s striking iX is set to come to the fore in 2022, bringing an eye-catching new look alongside a futuristic cabin that is packed with features. Available with two battery sizes - the largest of which is capable of delivering up to 391 miles of range - the iX arrives as BMW’s new flagship electric car. 

Mercedes EQS

Designed to offer the same refinement as an S-Class but with an efficient electric powertrain, the EQS packs a range of up to 453 miles. Plus, thanks to rapid 200kW charging, some 186 miles of range can be added in as little as 15 minutes. 

Genesis GV60

It’s the brand’s first bespoke EV and moves on from an electric version of the G80 saloon. While its quirky looks will no doubt turn heads, a performance version capable of reaching 60mph in under four seconds will be a car to get a lot of people excited. Plus, a range of 249 miles in large battery versions puts it on the money in this segment. 

Citroen Ami

Now, that’s changed. Following immense demand, Citroen is finally bringing the Ami to these shores. With a range of 46 miles and a top speed of 28mph, it’s definitely one for those who live in the city.
