Buyers looking for cleaner cars now have more options, as more and more prominent car manufacturers offer hybrid powertrains, as well as a huge increase in the number of electric vehicles (EVs) that have recently entered the market. The best hybrids and plug-in hybrids surpass conventional cars not only in fuel efficiency, but also in performance. EVs are attractive, efficient, and provide fast charging — and enough distance to avoid “various worries”
Let’s take a look at the most anticipated electric cars by 2022.
Hyundai Ioniq 5
The Ioniq 5 EV is expected to arrive in India in the second half of 2022, according to Hyundai. Internationally, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 will be available with a 58kWh battery and a larger 77.4kWh battery.
4WD configuration also happens with a large battery. The electric motor will have an output of 305 horsepower and 605Nm of torque. The advertised car distance is 481 kilometers.
The EV6 is Kia’s first electric-powered car, and is based on the company’s special EV platform. It will be available in India in June 2022, and is based on the same E-GMP platform as its counterpart, Hyundai IONIQ 5.
While we do not know any engine configurations that Kia will offer in India, we do know what variations will be offered worldwide. The 58kWh battery pack version is offered in two configurations: the RWD variant for one 170hp car and the all-wheel-drive (AWD) version with a dual-compact 235hp.
Honda City Hybrid
While this is not a future model, we thought it should be mentioned because it is a suitable competitor in electric vehicles and also environmentally friendly. Honda City hybrid has a value of Rs 19.49 lakh in India. It is the company’s first best-selling electric car, and it is the first in its class to use a self-propelled mixing system.
Honda offers the City hybrid, which combines a gasoline engine and two electric motors. It is available with a 1.5 liter engine producing 98PS and 127Nm of torque. At 253Nm of torque, electric engines produce 109PS, bringing the total power to 126PS.
