2020 EV Models to Watch

2020 is expected to bring us around 20 new EV models, and most of them are all-electric. Here are some standout models that we think will really move the needle when it comes to accelerating EV adoption. See which one might be your next EV or win you over to driving electric. (Keep in mind the prices provided are before any of the EV incentives that might be available to you.)

Gran Turismo style and electric energy make up this attractive Audi expected in Europe in late 2020 and the U.S. in 2021. A vegan interior with carpets made from recyclable materials extends the responsible choices and proves that choosing sustainability doesn’t compromise style.

Mercedes Vision EQS 

This attractive and highly anticipated electric sedan rounds out Mercedes’ electric offerings. Few details are available, but those who’ve gotten their hands on it loved the car: 

“The Vision EQS has huge potential to reshape people's perception of near-term electric luxury... In a market dominated by numb SUVs and a future seemingly dominated by autonomous living rooms on wheels, it's more than a little refreshing to see a concept that not only looks remarkably good but is intended to be good to drive as well.”
