Genesis – once the high-end arm of Hyundai – has gone out on its own. The new GV60 electric model follows hot on the heels of the recently-launched G70, GV70, G70 Shooting Brake, G80 and GV80. The Korean carmaker is not hanging about! Expect to see fully electrified versions of the G80 and GV70 too.

From the early concept, we know that Toyota’s bZ4x will be similarly sized to the RAV4 and should be landing in 2022. That’s about all we know for now.
15. Mercedes EQB
EQ is the electric sub-brand of Mercedes and has already we have seen successful launches of the EQA and EQC models. There are massive plans to further develop the range with talk of an EQB, EQE, EQS and even an EQG. That will offer Mercedes fans a whole lot of choice.
14. Volvo C40 Recharge
With a great driving range, this is the first Volvo car that will only be sold in EV format. We drove it on its international launch and we liked it very much. Great handling and range.
13. SsangYong Korando e-Motion
With a great reputation for developing strong, go-anywhere SUVs and pick-ups, Korean manufacturer SsangYong will be launching its first EV called the Korando e-Motion. It looks good and will have a decent driving range.

10. Renault 5 EV
The Renault 5 has iconic status and now the French carmaker has promised us an all-electric version will go into production very soon (although it may not quite make it by the end of 2022). Look out for the Alpine model to follow too.

The Alfa Romeo Tonale is due to arrive on UK shores in 2022 and will be smaller than the Stelvio but big on style, performance and appeal.

Not too many details are known about this model yet, apart from it looks amazing and will be taking on rivals from Audi in Porsche for premium performance EV sales.

We can expect a raft of family EVs to arrive over the next couple of years and the Nissan Ariya is one that will be heading a chasing pack. Stylish looks and it will be available with plenty of choice for customers.

Little has been revealed about the all-new Polestar 3 but that should be rectified in 2022 when more comprehensive details will be unveiled. It’s one to watch.

The Cupra name may be fairly new since making the move to break free from SEAT and operate as a stand-along manufacturer. Now we have the Born EV with great styling and a very impressive range.
2. Subaru Solterra
Subaru, known for its performance cars with racing at its very heart, is introducing its first electric model. It’s an SUV called the Solterra and is a joint venture with Toyota.
1. Citroen Ami
A list for 2022 would not be complete without some recognition of the funky Citroen Ami electric car. Technically, it’s not a car, but the two-seater oozes character and is fabulous for fizzing round town.
