There are so many new cars coming in the next few years; we’ve narrowed them down to some of the best
Best cars coming in 2024 and beyond
Alpine GT-X Over
Alpine’s first-ever electric car won’t be a battery-powered version of the A110 sports car; instead it’ll be (surprise, surprise) an electric performance SUV. The Alpine GT-X Over is set to take some elements from the A110 such as its quad headlight design and curved shape, however, it’ll be much more practical with five opening doors. Bosses at Alpine have already stated the GT-X Over could produce around 450bhp with all-wheel-drive, making it a rival for the likes of the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT.
The third-generation Fiat Panda has been on sale since 2011 and despite having received several updates over its lifespan, it has long felt outdated. An all-new model is on the way in the next couple of years and is set to gain an all-electric powertrain, all while remaining one of the most affordable new cars on the market. You can also expect the new Panda to adopt pseudo-SUV styling as well as potentially get a petrol mild-hybrid variant, too.
Ford Puma EV
As it moves towards electrification, Ford has announced a major reshuffle of its lineup – including the cancellation of the beloved Ford Fiesta. Part of this revised model range includes an electric version of the Ford Puma. This is likely to look very similar to the petrol model – apart from a blocked-off grille – and will share parts with the forthcoming electric Ford Tourneo Courier van to keep costs low.
Arguably the most highly-anticipated electric performance car coming in the next couple of years, the MG Cyberster will mark the return of the British brand to the realm of sports car manufacturing and is set to blend elements of classic MGs with futuristic technology. With a set of Lamborghini-style scissor doors and a yoke-style steering wheel, the MG Cyberster is bound to stand out and its rear-drive setup should mean it’ll be one of the most engaging EVs to drive.
The MG ZS EV clinched our Best Family Electric Car award for 2023 and is set to get even better. The second-generation MG ZS will ditch the petrol model to focus on electric power and will adopt the same angular styling as the smaller MG4. Like before, the new ZS will likely represent great value-for-money; it’s set to start from under £30,000, which is significantly less than other electric SUVs. MG upped its interior quality for the MG4, so we expect this to carry onto the new ZS too, which will rectify one of our main complaints about the current car.
Several manufacturers are reviving iconic models of the past as new EVs, and the upcoming electric Renault 5 is a prime example of this. Set to gain the same boxy shape as the original, the electric Renault 5 will cost less than the current ZOE hatchback and will go up against a host of other small retro EVs such as the Fiat 500 and MINI Cooper SE. Fans of classic rally racing will be pleased to hear a high-performance ‘Alpine R5’ version is also in the works, with sportier styling and a more-powerful front electric motor with around 215bhp.
