TESLA ROADSTER

When it finally launches, Tesla claims its Roadster will be the fastest car in the world. And there’s a good chance it will be. It’ll have an estimated 1300 bhp, over 1300 Nm torque and a 0-60mph time of 1.9 seconds, alongside a groundbreaking 620 mile range. Other party tricks include a removable glass roof and four seats, so you can scare the whole family.



MASERATI GRANTURISMO FOLGORE

MASERATI GRANTURISMO FOLGORE

An electric Maserati GranTurismo doesn’t seem quite right, but that’s what’s happening in 2023. The Folgore (‘lightning’ in Italian) will boast the same beautiful looks we’ve come to expect from the flagship, but the burbling V8 is replaced by electric motors that conjure up a huge 750bhp and 1350 NM torque. It will need it though. The car will weigh 2,260kg, which is venturing into SUV territory.

Polestar 3

POLESTAR 3



Polestar considers the little things. The 3’s roofline has been lowered and extended, giving it a distinctive sporty look that trumps every other car in its class. The wing mirrors have adopted the mobile phone design cue by going ‘glass to edge’ for less obstruction and a cleaner look. They also auto dim bright lights, and are heated to prevent fogging. The rear light bar gets brighter depending on the conditions, while the door handles sit flush with the doors for optimal aero efficiency. It’s everything an EV should be.

AUDI Q8 E-TRON

Not only does the Q8 e-tron produce exactly zero emissions on the road, it’s also built in Audi’s state of the art Brussels factory, which itself claims co2-neutral manufacturing. This will be Audi’s biggest and sportiest fully electric car, with just under 500bhp, yet its range of 284 miles is still mighty impressive considering the heft.



MERCEDES EQE SUV

Mercedes is the only brand that gets away with using serif fonts. It’s also one of the few car brands that is succeeding with the design of its EVs. The EQE SUV’s curvaceous exterior flows pleasantly from front to rear – it won’t make you weak at the knees but it also won’t make you keel over with nausea. Inside is the highlight. You won’t want to leave the driver’s seat, with its endless swathes of quilted leather and well integrated touchscreen.

VOLKSWAGEN ID VIZZION

VOLKSWAGEN ID VIZZION



The VW ID. Vizzion has suicide doors. Why don’t more cars have suicide doors? Whether it actually makes it to the market or not, this is what future VW EVs will look like. Facial recognition opens the doors for you; the steering wheel is replaced by augmented reality, projected onto the interior; and of course, it drives itself, with complete autonomous driving taking you from A to B. It might not make it in 2023, but this is a very real sign of the kind of tech to come.

HYUNDAI IONIQ 6

HYUNDAI IONIQ 6

Hyundai claims the Ioniq 6’s design is inspired by the ‘iconic streamlined vehicles of the 1920s and ‘30s’. But, in reality, it looks like the lovechild of a Porsche 911 and 1st gen Mercedes CLS. It will be genuinely futuristic though, with its concept car-like interior, video screen mirrors and seats made from recycled plastic bottles and ocean waste.

LOTUS ELETRE

LOTUS ELETRE



Whether you consider it a real Lotus or not, the Eletre sounds pretty remarkable. It’ll have 905bhp and a 0-60mph time of 2.95 seconds, ensuring it’ll keep up with the fastest supercars on the road. And it’s an SUV. It also looks fantastic and has active aerodynamics (who doesn’t want that?). Providing all goes well it might just ensure Lotus’ future is solid, which is uncharted – but welcome – waters for the Hethel based brand.

BMW I7

BMW I7

Whether it’s the ultimate driving machine is up for debate, but the BMW i7 is surely one of the ultimate cars to be driven in. The unprecedented luxury of the interior is topped by the optional 31 inch theatre screen, which offers rear passengers a genuine cinema experience. The looks are divisive, but the 544bhp and 745 Nm torque numbers will impress even the most cynical EV fan.

ROLLS ROYCE SPECTRE



ROLLS ROYCE SPECTRE

It always made sense for Rolls Royce to go electric. You could barely hear the shadowy noise of the V12s anyway. The Spectre will replace the Phantom, meaning you’re bound to see it everywhere from the streets of Mayfair to your favourite rapper’s new music video. It comes with a respectable 577bhp and hits 60 mph from standstill in 4.5 seconds, while its range is around 285 miles. It’s a looker, whether you’re admiring the endless length of its bonnet or sitting behind the boat-like, leather clad wheel.
