Every now and then, the automotive industry outdoes itself. Leaving us with a number of innovative and exciting cars to look forward to. These are five upcoming cars worth getting excited about…
Polestar is a subsidiary of Volvo, specialising in high-performance electric vehicles. When a premium brand makes, well, an even more ‘premium’ brand you’re pretty much guaranteed something special. Polestar 2 is an upcoming, all-electric 5 door fastback. It’s due to enter production in early 2020. According to Polestar, it’ll have a range in excess of 300 miles and a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of less than 5 seconds; seeking to challenge Tesla, it’ll also come replete with in-car tech.
Whilst hardly a premium vehicle, the ID.3 could be an historic model; certainly one of those upcoming cars worth getting excited about. According to Volkswagen, they fully expect it to be; anticipating a legacy equivalent to the Beetle or Golf. It’s the first model in VW’s ‘ID’ series and is widely regarded as the automaker’s first mainstream EV. Pre-orders of the first edition have already sold out, suggesting that the ID.3 is off to a good start. The top edition will have a range of nearly 350 miles; but the entry level will still offer 205.
The Taycan, allegedly pronounced ‘tie-con’, is set to be Porsche’s first all-electric car. And it appears that they’re taking it very seriously. The top trim will deliver between 237 – 280 miles of charge and top speed will sit at around 161 mph. The interior will possess four digital displays, one of which will be a curved, free-standing 16.8 inch configurable driver’s display. Such a level of digitalisation is new territory for Porsche. Ultimately, the Taycan will be similar to the ‘Mission E’ concept car, barring the suicide doors. We don’t think this is a bad thing.
Few upcoming cars develop the excitement and enthusiasm as the Honda e. It’s based on the company’s ‘Honda EV Concept’ that was unveiled in 2017; the reaction to which prompted executives to give a production version the green light. A 5-door city car, the model is aimed at younger, tech-savvy motorists with an interest in green motoring. Personally, we preferred the concept’s styling, but there’s something endearingly futuristic and retro about the current design all the same.
Aston Martin DBX
It’s not a great time for Aston Martin, both sales and share prices are down. Part of the plan to transform the company’s fortunes (quite literally) lie with the DBX. A luxury SUV, it’s an attempt by the automaker to capitalise on the popularity of the classification. Given the importance of the model to Aston Martin’s financial success, it’s undoubtedly an upcoming car worth watching; the company will no doubt be pouring all of its capabilities and talent into making it a success.
