Things are only getting more exciting in 2023 with the introduction of a number of new cars that we can't wait to see on the road. Here we take a look at the five we're most excited about this year.
The Peugeot 308 represents a new era for Peugeot, being the first model car with the new Peugeot badge and with this new era comes an electric version! With an elegant interior with a large central touchscreen and Peugeot's i-cockpit, the e-308 truly feels like a car built for the future. This new electric hatchback will have a whopping 238 miles of range thanks to its all-new electric drivetrain, and with its 51 kWh battery, you won't need to wait for it to charge!
Expected to arrive in the summer of 2023, the Abarth 500e. With its retro style with some sporty infusions, it is sure to catch the eye. Abarths are known for their iconic sound, but with the move to an electric future, that sound has died down. So the Abarth team installed a sound generator and amplifier on the 500e, helping to reproduce the intense sensations of its ICE counterpart. Choosing the battery for your Abarth 500e is just as easy as choosing the engine because there is only one option. You get the same 42kWh battery as you'll find in the range-topping Fiat 500, but the extra power in this car does reduce range somewhat. We don't have the new Abarth 500e available yet, but we can offer you the similar Fiat 500 e Icon.
The Jeep Avenger is Jeep's first foray into the ever-expanding electric car scene, and we couldn't be more excited about it! The Avenger is one of the smaller cars produced by Jeep, although it is unmistakably a Jeep with its iconic front grille and increased height. The Avenger will be the perfect companion for outdoor adventures thanks to its 399km range, fast charging and a range of different driving modes for different terrains.
For those looking for the most technologically advanced luxury sedan, then the Mercedes-Benz EQS should be high on your consideration list. It's the company's attempt to create an electric equivalent to the S-Class, and it offers the latest and greatest gadgets – including Benz's giant Hyperscreen touchscreen, fingerprint-scanning-based driver profiles and a whopping six USB-C ports . It pampers its drivers with voluminous interior space, wonderful cabin materials, headrest cushions, massage functions and neck and shoulder heating.
With its massive and edgy stance, the EV9 is sure to turn heads on the road. With an impressive mileage of 531 km. you won't have to, nor will you want to, leave the comfort of an SUV - with its huge panoramic sunroof, it's flooded with natural light and scenery, setting a new standard in comfort.
It should be noted that the release dates of these vehicles may be subject to change due to various factors such as production delays or supply chain disruptions. However, with new developments in battery technology, motors and new models hitting the market faster and faster, we really can't wait to see what the future holds for the electric car industry!
