Based on standard product cycles (and some reading between the lines of company statements), we see these developments emerging around 2021 or soon after:

  • A new platform for the Chevrolet Bolt with a potential crossover variant
  • Nearly a decade into production, Tesla could redesign the Model S with styling and tech updates
  • In 2019, Tesla started selling its $35,000 model, but the EV-maker could go even further down-market with a smaller compact model for the masses.
  • With many automakers integrating production lines for electric powertrains, we expect to see tons of new plug-in hybrid models. For reluctant consumers, a wide selection of plug-in hybrids will serve as gateway drugs to pure EVs.
