Best new electric cars coming in 2023

The range of electric cars available is rapidly increasing, and there are some special ones coming this year. Here are some you can really get excited about

The constant push for new electric vehicles makes this the most exciting period in car manufacturing history. The vast improvements we’ve seen over the years have meant EVs are more mainstream and readily available than ever before.

Every year carmakers announce brand-new models or facelifts and improvements to existing popular models, and there are many to admire.

Here's a list of some of the most exciting new electric cars coming in 2023:

Hyundai Ioniq 6

One of the biggest names in EV production is Hyundai. Its most popular models include the Ioniq and Ioniq 5, which have proven very successful.

Soon, the Ioniq 6 will be hitting UK roads, and it’s a very sleek and exciting-looking EV. It’s got an incredibly low drag coefficient of 0.21 that makes it as slippery as a bar of soap, and it whistles along the road in silence.

It also promises a 0-62mph time of 5.1 seconds and a total range of 338 miles on a single charge.

Jeep Avenger

The words ‘electric’ and ‘Jeep’ are not usually placed next to each other, but that's all changing this year with the launch of the Avenger.

No, this isn’t part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – it's the world’s first all-electric Jeep, which promises up to 342 miles on a single charge and rapid charging capabilities that allow you to charge from 20% to 80% in just 24 minutes.

This isn’t completely bespoke, however – the Avenger will be sitting on the same platform as the Peugeot 2008 and the Vauxhall Mokka, so you know you can trust the mechanics powering it.

Polestar 3

Volvo’s sexy electric sub-brand Polestar has been growing in popularity since the original Polestar 1 launched in 2019. Its most popular model is the Polestar 2 – an all-electric hatchback that's great to drive and offers an incredible range.

The upcoming Polestar 3 is set to change the game for this Swedish car brand. This is a sports SUV that offers over 500hp, a 379-mile range, and a 0-62mph time of 4.7 seconds.

It’s pretty safe to say that this will obliterate most other electric family cars on the school run, and it’ll look good while doing so.

Peugeot e-208 (updated for 2023)

As the saying goes, ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’, and that’s exactly what Peugeot has done with the e-208. It’s not being left unchanged, however, because the updated model for 2023 comes with some subtle yet effective improvements.

Thanks to a larger 51kWh battery, the e-208 will now be able to travel up to 248 miles on a single charge, with power increasing to 158hp resulting in a 0-62mph time of less than eight seconds.

Sharing its underpinnings with the standard Citroen e-C4, the e-C4 X is a sleeker version with a larger boot (now 130 litres larger at 510 litres) and slightly more range, with 222 miles available on a single charge.

Despite being longer at the back than the standard car, the designers have somehow made it work, and its new sleek and sloped rear makes for a real stunner.

Abarth 500e

One car that we didn’t expect to see this soon is an all-electric Abarth. Fiat has been making the 500 electric for a short while now and it’s been a great success. True to form, Abarth has now taken one and made it faster and cooler than ever before.

Powering it is a 154hp electric motor that allows it to get from 0-62mph in seven seconds. It’s also styled differently to make it more aggressive-looking and fitted with a speaker that plays a fruity exhaust note on the outside.

Watch our first look at the Abarth 500e Scorpionissima:

Smart #1

To go from small city cars to a large five-door electric family hatchback is quite a move for Smart, but we’re all for it. The Smart #1 will compete with the likes of the VW ID.3 and Hyundai Kona Electric.

It’ll be launched with a 66kWh battery that offers up to 275 miles of range and has rapid charging capabilities, so you can charge up from 10% to 80% in less than 30 minutes.

So, if you’re a fan of the existing electric Smart cars but feel like they could be larger, the upcoming #1 will make your 2023 a very good year indeed.
