New cars are coming along constantly, especially as the gradual shift towards all-electric vehicles continues to pick up pace.

Cars Coming for 2024

From crossovers to hatchbacks to supercars, many of them all-new models, here’s a list of cars to look forward to in 2024.

Alfa Romeo Electric SUV

Alfa Romeo is due to launch its first all-electric vehicle next year.

It won’t necessarily be all brand-new parts, as parent company Stellantis already has a track record for building all-electric cars, and rumour has it the vehicle will be based on the same platform as the electric Vauxhall Corsa.

That might not sound enticing, but the secret is in the recipe, not the ingredients, so we’re backing Alfa’s engineers to make the best of it.

The as-yet-unnamed SUV is likely to be smaller than the Tonale, and we should see it on the roads towards the back of 2024.

Audi A6 e-tron

Audi is gradually electrifying its range with brand-new models that carry some of its existing badges.

Audi has promised us electric cars galore, with at least 20 new all-electric vehicles arriving by 2025.

The new one on the list is the all-electric A6, which will feature heavily revised looks, optimised aerodynamic efficiency and a range reportedly over 425 miles from a 100kWh battery.

Rapid acceleration is also on the cards with single and dual motor variants on offer, as well as both saloon and estate versions.

Audi A8 e-tron

The new A8 e-tron is set to be a real head-turner based on a concept car called the Grandsphere.

While manufacturers are known for launching grandiose concept motors that are heavily watered down when they go into production, the German manufacturer claims that the all-electric A8 will be closer to its concept than is traditional.

Rivalling the Mercedes-Benz EQS and the BMW i7, the A8 e-tron will become the brand's new flagship.

We've seen plenty of ultra-futuristic interior layouts in EVs already, but if what Audi is saying is to be believed, this could blow them all out of the water.

Cupra Tavascan

Another car based on a concept is Cupra's new Tavascan all-electric crossover.

Though it’s based on the same underpinnings as its sister, the Born, the Tavascan has a far more aggressive front end – so fierce that it's nearly all grille, with barely any bodywork.

It’ll have a dual-motor all-wheel drive layout, producing around 305PS with its 77kWh battery providing a range of approximately 275 miles.

We’re expecting numerous power outputs in the Tavascan, with lower-powered variants offering more range, as it seeks to compete with the Jaguar I-Pace.

Cupra Terramar

While the Tavascan is billed as an all-electric car, the Terramar will be a plug-in hybrid SUV.

It’ll be larger than the Tavascan, too, and is likely to be a rival to the Alfa Romeo Tonale, based on the MQB platform from Volkswagen.

Specific details have yet to be confirmed, so we don’t know what engine will be included, but it’s likely to have an all-electric range above 60 miles.

We understand non-hybrid petrol versions will also be available.

Fiat Centoventi

The Centoventi was unveiled as a concept car a few years ago – and Fiat has confirmed it’s going into production.

Billed initially as a replacement for the Panda, its boxy design with rounded edges has echoes of the Honda e – and it looks just as cute.

It’s also designed to be modular, meaning you can take out bits and replace them, enabling you to increase range or power as technology improves.

Suicide doors featured on the concept, as did an interior that looked like a children's playground mock-up of a cabin, so we'll be intrigued to see how it looks when the actual model comes along.

Fiat Panda

What’s bizarre about Fiat replacing the Panda with the Centoventi is that Fiat is also launching a new Panda at the same time.

It’s radically different, though – a small SUV that looks like a miniature version of the Land Rover Defender, though we know very little about it so far.

We know it'll be sharing some of its DNA with the all-electric Jeep Avenger, which has a range of around 250 miles.

Could that mean a four-wheel-drive Fiat Panda? It’s potentially on the cards.

Ford Puma EV

Ford famously killed off the Fiesta a few months ago, deeming it unviable for conversion to an all-electric car.

The focus, at least for now, is on crossovers, such as the Ford Puma, which bears no resemblance to the small coupe of the late 1990s.

The new Puma will feature a look not dissimilar from the current one, but with a body-coloured panel in place of the grille, as per the Ford Mustang Mach-E.

It’ll share components with several new Ford vans, so a range of powertrains is expected, possibly producing 135 to 270PS, though details are yet to be confirmed.

Jeep Recon

Hot on the heels of the launch of the Avenger, Jeep is set to unveil another all-electric SUV in the form of the Recon.

Heavily inspired by the Wrangler, it’s set to be much bigger than the Avenger, adopting many of the Wrangler's features, such as a retractable roof.

Pictures suggest it’ll look far less utilitarian than the Wrangler, though, not dissimilar from Land Rover’s transformation when it launched the new Defender.

It’ll be based on the STLA large platform from Stellantis, which will form the underpinnings for several other upcoming vehicles.

Lotus Type 133

Any new Lotus model should excite us – but there hasn't been a more intriguing Lotus for ages than the Type 133.

Though it's technically an all-wheel drive performance saloon, the pictures would have you believe it's a supercar, and it's set to have the figures to back it up.

It's believed to produce around 900PS in its most potent form, in line with the Eletre SUV, with which it shares much of its technology.

Little else is known about it, other than it is more than five metres long – and it likely won’t be called the Type 133 when it goes on sale.

MG Cyberster

After rising from the ashes of the MG Rover collapse, MG has reformed on its own and has raised eyebrows with some excellent cars, especially the MG 4 EV.

Its success has raised expectations of MG as it prepares to launch an all-electric sports car – the Cyberster.

With striking looks, scissor doors and a futuristic steering wheel, it’s hoped the drivability will live up to its aesthetics.

The Cyberster will be rear-wheel drive, and we can't wait to drive it when it hits the roads next summer.

MG ZS

Like the MG 4 EV, the MG ZS is another car that has quickly catapulted MG’s reputation many steps up the ladder.

The second-generation ZS all-electric vehicle is coming next year, discontinuing the petrol version altogether and adopting the MG 4’s aggressive styling.

Also, like the MG 4, it'll be priced to undercut its competitors significantly and is expected to feature a heavily revised, minimalistic interior.

The MG 4 achieved so much while keeping the price down, and if it can pull off the same trick with the new ZS, MG will continue to win hearts and minds – not to mention customers.

Mini Countryman Crossover

It’s been a long while since the Mini truly lived up to its name as a tiny vehicle – and it’s about to get even bigger.

While Mini has already given us the Countryman, this new one is slightly larger, going up against the likes of the Vauxhall Mokka-e.

It’s expected to offer an all-electric version alongside petrol models based on the same platform as the BMW X1, and that’ll mean this will be the most enormous Mini ever made.

Early prototypes show a familiar look but with modifications to its front end, which, despite its bigger size, appears narrower than current models.

Polestar 4

All-electric Tesla challenger, Polestar, has finally added to its range recently by unveiling its first SUV crossover, the Polestar 3.

And it seems the floodgates have now opened as it prepares to launch another SUV crossover in the form of the Polestar 4.

Unlike the 3, the Polestar 4 features a swept back end with a significant slope in the roofline, with the manufacturer insisting the latter is not a modified version of the former.

Nevertheless, they are based on the same platform. And, as a result, we should expect similar power outputs, with single and dual-motor versions capable of producing over 500PS in their most potent form and a range of around 375 miles.

Polestar 5

Unlike the Polestar 4, the upcoming 5 is not an SUV crossover – not anything like one.

It’s a luxury executive saloon that looks more sports car than BMW 4-Series.

With a heavily sweptback design and body sculpting at the sides that Lamborghini or Pagani would be proud of, this is understandably a hotly anticipated model.

It'll borrow some Lamborghini-inspired insanity, too, with high-performance versions set to produce somewhere in the region of 875PS.

It’s being developed in the UK, which is a nice bonus, and is set to have a range around the 300-mile mark.

But, in terms of price, it’s likely to be pushing into six figures.

Porsche Macan EV

The Porsche Macan is going all-electric, though it won’t be the same car as the existing Macan.

That effectively means that Porsche will be selling two completely different variants with the same name, given the existing Macan has recently had its mid-life overhaul.

While similarities are to be expected, it’ll likely look different – similar to how Fiat continues to sell the older fossil-fuelled 500 alongside the newer 500e.

Rear-wheel and all-wheel drive models are anticipated, with a range above 400 miles.

It’ll share some of its components with the upcoming Audi A6 e-tron, too.

Renault 5

Yes, you read that right – the famous Renault supermini is back.

No, it isn’t just a rehash of the name attached to an SUV crossover – this is going to be the supermini of the future.

Even taking inspiration from the rear pillar-based lights of the classic old model, the new one shares a familiar shape, albeit with more rounded edges.

Renault also claims it’ll be significantly cheaper than most electric cars, comparable with similarly sized petrol models of today.

Expect a range of around 250 miles and around 135PS – we can’t wait!

Renault Scenic SUV

While being busy breathing new life into models of old, Renault is also redesigning existing models from the ground up.

The recently discontinued Scenic will return with a heavily revised exterior design that promises good looks and aero-efficiency next year.

Although the Scenic will be all-electric, possibly with a range of over 300 miles and a battery pushing on for 90kWh in the top model, it’s also launching a brand-new form of hybrid: part-electric and part-hydrogen fuel cell.

That model will produce something in the region of 220PS.

Based on the same platform as the Nissan Ariya, we're looking forward to trying it out.

Tesla Roadster

With Lotus and Polestar giving us supercar-themed cars, Tesla couldn’t lose out.

The first-generation roadster has largely been forgotten, given the waves the American manufacturer made by getting ahead of the game with its broader range of family electric cars.

But the second generation is finally on its way, with figures that do justice to Elon Musk’s ideas. 

A zero to 60mph time of 1.9 seconds and a top speed of over 250mph are claimed – and yet the Tesla will have a 620-mile range thanks to a massive 200kWh battery.

You can reserve one today for £4,000, followed by another £34,000 due ten days later – though we understand there’s at least another £150,000 you’ll have to pay after that.

Volvo EX30

The new Volvo EX30 is on sale now, though it will arrive next year.

It’s becoming Volvo’s smallest all-electric SUV crossover with a minimalist interior and a tablet for the infotainment.

It shares some of its underpinnings with the Polestar 4, offering 214 to 298 miles of range and is available with up to 272PS in rear-wheel drive form.

Pick the dual-motor version, and the power shoots up to 428PS with a 3.4-second 0-60mph time. Yikes.
