The interest in hybrid and electric cars is growing faster than ever before. So, major carmakers are also focusing on this segment. One candidate worth waiting for is the upcoming 2018 Chevrolet Bolt. As it is the Chevy Bolt was among the pioneers in electric vehicle market and over the years GM has made the car even more desirable with numerous enhancements and performance boost.
The 2018 version has been aimed to fight the Tesla Model 3 and Nissan Leaf. The electric motor now offers a 200-mile range with a top speed of 91mph- which is pretty impressive. Another electric model you may look forward to is the 2018 Tesla Model 3. The company has always been in news for its avant-garde technology and concepts on electric vehicles. This model has generated enough buzz for its so-called autonomous driving technology. But industry updates indicate it may arrive late and so buyers may have to wait until 2019.
Those looking for greener vehicles may also wait for the 2018 Nissan Leaf. It is among the most popular EVs in the world. The 2018 model may not, after all, get a more powerful battery, contrary to what rumor mills suggested. It will challenge the new Hyundai Ioniq.
Not willing to let Toyota and GM have all the fun in hybrid vehicle segment, Ford has also jumped on the bandwagon! The result is this endeavor is the upcoming 2019 Ford ‘Model E’ hybrid. In fact, Ford has plans to introduce a handful of green vehicles under Model E lineup. This would also include a hybrid compact model. It reportedly will have a 200-mile range to be covered per charge. If you thought luxury brands are averse to making a hybrid or electric models, think again.
The 2020 Porsche Mission E will be one such example. The all-electric sedan is in concept version but testing has started. It will be better than other rivals in speed and mileage. The car will reportedly have a range of 330 km on a charge.
