Top 9 Electric Vehicles Coming to USA in 2021

These are the most awaited electric vehicles user expected in 2021, dynamic. technological superior from any prior similar class vehicles, powerful and most important high mileage per charge to almost all vehicles in this list is the most excited features, manufacturers offering in coming year.

Here are the list of Top 9 Electric Vehicles Coming to USA in 2021

Trucks coming to market next year

While Rivian’s R1T will come out first, production in 2021 and 40,000 units in 2022 is expected to be about 20,000 units. For a luxury vehicle entering the market, this is not unprecedented and follows a similar development pattern as Tesla’s Model S and X in their early days. What is unexpected is that these manufacturing figures have been released publicly. Shout out to RJ Scaringe, Rivian’s founder and CEO, for being straightforward and providing this juicy data to us.

GMC Hummer EV (Edition 1)

blank

The Hummer EV of GMC may make waves, but all eyes are on GM to pull through on its remarkably ambitious timetable with no demo units out. Check out GMC’s reservation site here for more information on the potential trim levels. I’m not sure how well the Hummer EV would do with a price point above the other trucks featured in this article so far and with the base model not estimated to be launched until the introduction of Edition 1 for years. It will be fascinating to see how, considering the price gap, the Hummer EV competes with the R1T and the Cybertruck.

Tesla Cybertruck (Tri-Motor/Dual-Motor)

blank

Lastly, at the very end of 2021, Tesla’s Cybertruck would definitely make a splash. However, due to rapid development at the Austin, Texas, plant, production may come sooner than expected. Tesla would have to travel rapidly, but this skill has been demonstrated in the past. The $69,990 Cybertruck Tri-motor will arrive first, with the $49,990 Dual-motor version arriving in late 2021, and the $39,990 Single-motor version not anticipated until late 2022. I expect the Cybertruck to reasonably quickly ramp up production and hopefully escape some of the “production hell” that attacked Model 3. However, no one knows how the factory will prioritize the production rates of Model Y, Model 3, Tesla Semi, and Cybertruck between the end of 2021 and 2022, so before Tesla clarifies its production schedules at the Austin factory, things will be very uncertain. Also, remember that, at 3.7 million sq feet planned so far, the Texas gigafactory will be huge.

Ford Mustang Mach-E

blank

Ford’s Mustang Mach-E (already out but undergoing a significant production ramp-up in 2021) puts Ford in the race for EV dominance, and if you’re not happy about that, you’re probably mad about the Mustang name being used. With a solid range that starts at 210 miles (AWD + standard battery pack), a standard and long-range battery pack option, and RWD and AWD options, this car has the customization the US EV market has long desired.

The Mach-E does not have adequate range for the price (base model starts at $42,895) without the federal tax credit compared to the Model Y and Model 3, and I expect that as Ford becomes more comfortable with battery technology, as battery tech gets cheaper, and as competition tightens, Ford will increase the range and reduce the price, probably very significantly if Ford loses the federal ta ta The Mach-E market niche is eaten by many other vehicles without the federal tax credit, specifically the Hyundai 5, Tesla Model Y and Model 3, Volkswagen ID.4, and Nissan Ariya, to name a few.

Once the federal tax credit is no longer applicable, I can expect substantial price cuts from Ford. Of course, if the incoming Biden administration makes major EV policy changes and Tesla is able to secure a tax credit or other federal reward for Model 3 and Y, all bets are off and I could see the Mach-E losing out to cheaper, longer-range CUVs very seriously. At this late stage, Ford has its job cut out for it to become a dominant force in the EV world, but I look forward to seeing how it can cope with this challenge. The next few years will decide the future for one of the oldest car manufacturers in the USA, and it all begins with the Mach-E.

I spoke a little bit about vehicles that could eat into the market room of the Mach-E. In 2021, some of them will arrive.

Volkswagen ID.4

blank

After the diesel gate fiasco a few years ago, Volkswagen’s big course correction began, and while Europe has seen ID.3 for the last few months of 2020, the US has been waiting and waiting for its first ID edition. The wait will be just a little longer! The Volkswagen ID.4 will be eligible in 2021. The 1st edition has already been sold out and will be shipped in Q1 of 2021. The ID.4 Pro is open until the federal tax credit for reservations with delivery scheduled in “mid 2021,” starting at $39,995.

With 250 miles of range and an AWD option ($ 3,680), and with attractive pricing, the ID.4 has the potential to bring pressure on the Tesla Model 3 and Y markets. Anyone searching for a reasonable range (~ 250 miles), reasonably low cost (~ $ 35,000) CUV can now get one with the federal tax credit knocking the price down. I see this model undercutting the price of the Ford Mustang Mach-E for a similar gain, though, relative to the longer range and higher price of Tesla’s Model Y, both vehicles could almost be considered a new market segment.

Nissan Ariya

blank

In the US, the Nissan Ariya will not arrive until late 2021. It could, however, reach the Japanese market slightly earlier than that. Two battery options (63 and 87 kWh) and either FWD or AWD will be available for the Nissan Ariya. A front-wheel-drive, large-battery-pack variant should have a range of around 300 miles, which means that the FWD version of the small battery pack should have a range of sub-220 miles, with AWD models significantly lower than the FWD versions. For the base model, the recommended MSRP would be about $40,000, suggesting that the long-range, AWD vehicle would be somewhere close to $50,000, quite similar to Tesla’s Model Y, which will be a direct competitor with about 25 percent more range.

With Nissan closing in on the federal tax credit’s 200,000 vehicles sold sunset mark, I could see Nissan having a hard time competing with the Tesla Model Y in the Ariya’s highest “spec’d” versions by 2022. The ID.4 Pro is also around that $40,000 mark, with likely a bit higher range, and could impact Nissan’s Ariya sales in a big way.

Side Note: Another piece of information about the Nissan Ariya is that it will use the DC charging plug type of the North American Combined Charging Standard (CCS1), which may not yet mean much to most individuals, but is significant because it will establish a fast charging standard in the US and North America as a whole (though, Tesla will still be doing its own thing). Although the introduction of the Ariya will not eliminate all the older Nissan Chademo chargers (another DC charging plug) out there immediately, nor will it convert all the vehicles with Chademo plug receptacles into CCS receptacles, it will allow some amount of fast charger plug consolidation. In the long run, the arrival of the Ariya may signal a sharp drop in Nissan Leaf values as manufacturers/installers of DC chargers decide to install fewer and fewer Chademo chargers and more and more places simply decide that a Chademo charger is unnecessary at their venue. In the comments, let me know if you disagree with my review here.

Lastly, we have a bit of an oddball here in the field of CUVs: a luxurious full-sized SUV.

Rivian’s R1S

blank

Though production begins later than Rivian’s R1T truck, the first full-size all-electric SUV to reach the market is the R1S Launch Model, and wow, it is magnificent. The earliest new shoppers will obtain the R1S is January 2022, with complete reservations for the Launch Version. With a base range of 300+ miles, AWD normal, 0-60 mph for around 3 seconds, towing up to 7,700 lb, wading depth of 3 feet, and more potential models, the specs impress. The catch is that it starts at around $70,000, and there’s no justification for the price to fall anytime soon without any rivalry to be found. Fortunately, the price would drop the federal tax credit quite a lot.

It seems very probable that, for quite some time, Rivian will have this business sector to itself.

Lucid Air

blank

As soon as the Air and Air tour comes out, mind the extreme danger to the Tesla Model S. Until that moment, Lucid produces cars that mere mortals can only dream of (pun intended). Many who may have been interested in Model S would probably be flocking to the sexy Air of Lucid. This car will take the long-distance crown from Tesla with an impressive range, but only for a short time, as the Model S Ridiculous Plaid provides a few more miles of range.
