New electric SUVs coming to the UK from 2023. Mercedes-Benz, Lotus, Kia, Renault, Cupra, Alfa Romeo, Jeep, Munro, and Hyundai to launch zero emission SUVs.

New Electric SUVs: coming soon to the UK

There are an exciting range of fully electric, zero emission SUVs coming either this year or next to us in the UK and we’ve picked out our favourites here…

Mercedes-Benz EQG

The Mercedes-Benz EQG is the fully electric version of the manufacturer’s legendary off-roader, the G-Glass. The EQG has independent front suspension, a rigid rear axle, all-wheel drive, and shiftable two-speed transmission. Additionally, the four electric motors ‘allow for great pulling power and controllability’. The EQG launches in 2024. 

Hyundai Ionic 7

The Hyundai Ioniq 7 is a large, luxurious, fully electric seven seater with futuristic looks reminiscent of the concept car that inspires it. Notable features include the horizontal front light bar that spans its width, the minimalistic lines, vast grille, and handles that sit flush with the doors to optimise aerodynamic efficiency. Rumours suggest the car can cover 300 miles per charge.

Munro Mk1

The Munro Mk1 is a hard-core vehicle for farmers, rescue teams, tree surgeons, and many others. The Mk1’s towing capacity is 3,500kg, its maximum payload is 1,000kg, and the wading depth is 800mm. Military styling adds to its appeal. For strength, the vehicle’s construction is body-on-frame and it has solid axles. It is quick, too. The most powerful version hits 60mph in 4.9 seconds.

Alfa Romeo

Alfa Romeo plans to launch a small, fully electric, zero emission SUV in 2024. Its name has not been revealed, though. Like the Jeep Avenger, the vehicle sits on the e-CMP platform and has a 51kWh battery. This new model is important to the manufacturer as it is struggling to find customers. In February 2023, Alfa Romeo only sold 61 cars in the UK. Ford sold 6,852 and Vauxhall managed 5,513.

Cupra Tavascan

The Cupra Tavascan launches in 2024. Early indicators suggest it has 305PS, all-wheel drive, and a 77kWh lithium-ion battery in the floor. The vehicle’s maximum range per charge is about 279 miles.

Jeep Recon

The Jeep Recon is a muscular, fashionable, off-road warrior for 2025. Strengths include doors that can be easily removed and the roof can be retracted, too. Further features include all-wheel drive, underbody protection plates, and off-road tyres. Perfect for conquering extreme terrain.

Renault R4

The Renault R4 could make a big impression when it launches in the UK. Rumours suggest it has retro styling that pays homage to its illustrious predecessor, the Renault 4. This classic, low cost, utilitarian workhorse is one of the company’s most successful vehicles. From 1961 to 1994, more than eight million were produced. 

Kia EV9

The Kia EV9 is an enormous vehicle that’s 5 metres long, 2 metres wide, and 1.7 metres tall. Leaked pictures suggest it has muscular styling and three rows of seats. The minimalistic cabin is dominated by a large touchscreen on the dashboard. The EV9 also has plenty of power, a wireless phone charger, and all-wheel drive.

Lotus Eletre

The Lotus Eletre is the company’s first SUV. It comes in three forms: Eletre, Eletre S, and Eletre R. The R – which is top of the range – has 905PS, all-wheel drive, and charges to 62mph in 2.95 seconds. The R is powered by a 112kWh battery and its maximum range per charge is 304 miles. Air suspension will be a decent addition and deliveries start in summer 2023.
