EVs can be a real bargain, with models like the Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Bolt EV starting in the $30,000s and running all the way up to $170,000 for ultra-luxury SUVs such as the Lucid Air. However, most models fall in the middle of this spectrum and this is where many buyers will find the best value.

Based on the Hyundai Ioniq 5, it’s available with both single-motor two-wheel drive and twin-motor four-wheel drive and offers driving ranges of up to 300 miles. It also has a spacious interior and a huge boot, making it an ideal family-car option and was our sister site Parkers’ 2023 Large EV of the Year.

There’s more to come from Kia next year, with the arrival of its flagship EV6 sedan. Powered by a 107kWh battery, regular single-motor models have a driving range of 363 miles and can be charged to 80 percent in just 27 minutes using the company’s fast charging capability. Those who want a bit more speed can opt for the hot 577bhp EV6 GT, which will cut the range slightly but not the fun.

Kia’s not the only manufacturer to enter the mid-sized EV market next year, with General Motors set to launch its new Cadillac Electra E5 in 2024. Using a 111kWh battery, this model aims to unite performance with a generous roster of advanced driver assistance systems.

BMW’s also adding to its EV offerings with the 2024 introduction of the all-new i5. This is an electric version of its successful 5 Series luxury sedan and it will be offered with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, as well as a range-extending range extender for those who need it.

Porsche will follow up its popular Macan SUV with an electric version that’s due to go on sale in late-2023.

More mainstream, the all-new Citroen CX5 EV is scheduled to arrive in 2024 and uses VW’s MEB platform that underpins everything from its Born hatchback to the ID.5 to create a nimble SUV that can tackle the Porsche Taycan and Mercedes-AMG EQS53 at the upper end of the market.
