Top 10 Electric Cars for 2020

2020 is upon us and its time to start this new decade with a ‘BANG!’. Electric vehicles have finally grabbed the automotive industry’s attention and their work has excelled in recent years with the future invested in these cars. So what are 2020’s most anticipated cars and what’s yet to come?

10. Seat el-Born

This sleek five-door hatchback is an extremely versatile car – ideal for city driving and long drives with a 62kWh battery that achieves 261 miles on a single charge. With Seats record of affordability, this car is ideal for most road-users. The Seat el-Born also uses the VW MEB platform which is featured in only one other car model; the VW ID3.

9. Peugeot e-208

The Peugeot e-208 Is Peugeot’s first pure electric car, with a 50kWh battery and 134bhp electric motor, this supermini is a perfect transitioning car for current Peugeot owners or fans. Although it’s specs may not measure up to that of the Seat el-Born, it’s certainly a breakthrough for the company and offers that sense of familiarity which the el-Born won’t provide.

8. Ford Mustang Mach-e

The Mustang is back with an impressive 75kWh battery, 333bhp and 280 miles of range at entry level but an awesome 370 miles with the 99kWh battery. A car that has always promised to deliver power certainly still brings that to an electric SUV model, with the additional performance benefits such as rear-wheel drive and the GT model achieving 0-62 in under five seconds.

7. BMW ix3

Following the Peugeot e-208, the BMW ix3 is another EV that’s an electric version of a current model. Looking almost identical to the standard x3, the BMW ix3 will be powered by a two-motor, four-wheel-drive powertrain. This classic and beloved 4x4 offers 266bhp with 249 miles of range from a 70kWh battery. The Ix3 is expected to go in sale in the second-half of 2020.

6. Mercedes EQC

Being one of the favourites in 2019, the EQC is anticipated to be even better in 2020. Although this fantastic car isn’t available for all budgets, as expected with any new Mercedes, this SUV is certainly worth it’s price. With its unmistakable presence of luxury and it’s gadget-packed interior – this car proves to be a difficult contender for the likes of the Jaguar I-Pace and Audi E-tron. This car sports a powerful 80kWh lithium ion battery that can achieve a 280-mile range on a single charge.

5. Honda e

Lets face it, this car has an indescribable appearance. Like a 1960’s interpretation of a futuristic car but in a kinda-cool way. Promising both affordability and performance, the Honda e was designed for city driving, with a 136 mile range from a 35.5 kWh battery and rear-wheel drive for precise steering. This single-motor car has been in waiting since 2017 where is was first showcased in Frankfurt.

4. Mini Electric

The Mini Electric is barely differential from the current petrol and diesel designs aside from the electric symbol on the grill, and they want it to be like that because this car was designed to be the future of Mini, not a breakthrough. So, what makes this a better option than the fuel equivalent? How about that insurance group being significantly lower? An equally affordable price with the benefit of cheaper fuel costs? With a range of 145 miles and a battery charge of 0-80 per cent in 35 minutes with a fast charger. This fabulous classic is expected to hit the streets in March 2020, and has been stated to offer an even more “go-kart-like” drive than the standard mini due to the lower centre of gravity and bespoke suspension.

3. Vauxhall e-Corsa

The Vauxhall Corsa has been one of the most popular cars in the UK for a while now – often getting beaten by the Ford Fiesta, but with their new electric version, Vauxhall is aiming high for this car. With 205 miles of range from a 50kWh battery alongside its practical, classic design, this car is certainly expected to persuade petrol and diesel fans to transition to electric. This supermini will be using the same drivetrain and platform as the Peugeot e-208 but with 125bhp and a 0-62mph within 7.6 seconds, this car champions both performance as well as familiarity with the original Vauxhall Corsa. With this finesse comes the price tag however, to which Vauxhall have stated their ambition to jump the prices up for a better vehicle; but don’t expect Mercedes level of price inflation, just something to compete with the likes of similar competitors. The e-Corsa is expected to be released early next year.

2. Porsche Taycan

Elegance and sophistication – Porsche always promises to deliver luxury and the Taycan is further proof of this. With a range of 270miles for the Turbo model, the Taycan is expected to be available in January 2020. With a performance that is comparable with the Tesla Model S; the Tesla Model S certainly doesn’t have the feel and look of a Porsche (or even the street-cred, to be fair). This car is Porsche’s first fully electric, luxury saloon making itself very desirable to the niche of customers looking for high performance and opulence in their automobiles. Porsche have stated that the Taycan will fully charge overnight in nine hours with a home charger and can go from 5-80% charge in 23 minutes with a fast charger. With refined German engineering and up to 751bhp, this extravagant four-seater holds true to creating a truly spectacular experience to drive. To top this off, the Porsche Taycan holds an impressive acceleration time of 0-62mph within 2.8 to 4 seconds. This car is simply unmissable in the upcoming year.

1. Audi e-tron Sportback

The all-round favourite. Luxury. Performance. Practicality. It has it all and it has been well anticipated. Audi has been knocking our socks off for next years line up of automobiles and people cannot wait. From the line-up it simply had to be the e-tron and we really couldn’t fill our favourites list with just every electric Audi we could find, but with the sheer amount of favouritism in the auto industry for the e-tron, we have no other place than first for the e-Tron Sportback.

This premium SUV coupe will offer a “sportier” drive in comparison to the e-tron SUV that went on sale earlier this year, with an impressive 335bhp twin-motor and acceleration time of 0-62mph within 5.7 seconds. It’s staggering range of 240 miles makes this car ideal for long journeys and fewer charges per journey as well as versatility given its spacious yet still practical and compact design for even town and city driving. The Audi e-tron comes with an adaptive sports suspension and a bespoke seven-mode drive select system to make your driving experience simply unbeatable. With the adaptability and responsiveness of steering and four-wheel drive, this car was made for all-terrain and all purposes whilst giving you an effortless driving experience and the feel of luxury.
