But in the near future, we will see new players emerging, starting with the Chevrolet Bolt and Renault ZOE, which are currently in production and will be available shortly. And ... by 2021, close to 20 more options will become available.

Here's the short list as compiled by The Insider, in order of anticipated arrival.

  • Renault ZOE, ~200 miles of range, available now in the UK
  • Chevrolet Bolt, 238 miles, currently in production
  • Hyundai Ioniq EV, 110 miles, available this winter
  • Nissan LEAF, 200+ miles, "soon"/2017
  • Tesla Model 3, 200+ miles, late 2017
  • Fisker E-Motion, ~400 miles
  • Audi e-tron quattro SUV, 310 miles, 2018
  • Jaguar E-Pace SUV, all-electric long-range, 2018
  • Aston Martin RapidE, 210 miles, 2018
  • Next-Gen Tesla Roadster, 200+miles, 2019
  • Mercedes-Benz Generation EQ, 300 miles, 2019
  • Volvo "?", 200+ miles, 2019
  • Audi "A9 e-tron", 300 miles, 2020
  • Porsche Mission E Concept, 240 miles, 2020
  • Faraday Future, ~300 miles, 2020
  • Volkswagen I.D., 240 miles, 2020
  • Ford "?", all-electric long-range, 2020
  • Subaru "?", all-electric long-range, 2021
  • BMW SUV, all-electric long-range, 2021
Obviously there are a lot of unknowns here on the list (as well as a few omissions). Also, keep in mind that different countries have different test models for determining range. Some of the above numbers are EPA, while others are NEDC. Some are concept cars and/or even just rounded estimates, as not all information is available or accurate. However, what we do know is that a lot of longer range electric cars are coming in the next 5 or so years.
