2022 Preview: 10 coolest EVs and plug-in hybrids coming next year
It should come as no surprise, but 2022 is set to be a big year for plug-in hybrids and fully electric vehicles
It feels like everyone is going all-in to the electrification trend, with many automakers investing billions of dollars into green vehicles. Long-range EVs are not packing a premium anymore with mainstream, mass-market brands offering some competitive range and performance. Let’s take a closer look at what we’re most excited to drive in the next 12 months.
That means the two cars offer rear-wheel- and all-wheel-drive arrangements that can be paired with a 58-kWh or 77.4-kWh battery. The EV6 will return a maximum of 498 km in the big battery, rear-wheel-drive model, while the similarly equipped Ioniq 5 will manage 487 km. Both of these Korean EVs seem impressive, and we can’t wait to put them to the test.

The Cadillac Lyriq has been a long time coming, first getting mentioned in 2020, but that means there has been plenty of time to perfect all the little details that make a luxury car so impressive. That’s important, as the specs sound similar to all the other electric crossovers coming out — 100-kWh battery, over 480 km of range, 190-kW DC Fast-Charging and 340 horsepower.
