The 10 electric cars that will mark the start of the school year

We don’t want to spoil the mood, but back to school is coming! The good point is that it brings its share of electrical news. Whether they’re production models or concepts, whether they’re being unveiled for the first time or finally arriving at dealerships, whether they’re from established brands or exotic brands, here are the 10 trendy vehicles you’ll be talking about over the next few weeks.

Hyundai Ioniq 6

Hyundai Ioniq 6

The Ioniq 6, presented at the beginning of the summer, will be available to order at the start of the school year. It will therefore be necessary to show up quickly to be among the first to have a copy of this original electric sedan, with a very aerodynamic silhouette. Hyundai hopes to deliver before the end of the year. The large battery version will offer up to 610 km range. It is a large model, with 4.86 meters in length.

Baby Jeep

Well up-to-date in terms of plug-in hybrids, Jeep still has no electric in its lineup, however. But he has promised to have them at all levels of his offer from 2025. The first model will be a new small adventurer, positioned below the Renegade and taking the technical basis of the Peugeot e-208. If Jeep has already published two images of the machine (without revealing its name), it is in September that it will reveal it in full, before an exhibition to the public at the Paris Motor Show in October.

MG4 electric

Will a Chinese car be the star of the new school year? Is it possible. We just have to see the audience of the topics devoted to the MG4 Electric to see a sacred effect of curiosity for this model. MG will hit hard with this electric compact, which intends to lower prices without cutting equipment or autonomy. The entry ticket will be under €30,000 with 350km of autonomy. Or €5,000 less than the electric Mégane, which “only” has 300 km of autonomy in the entry model. This MG4 should reach the concessions in early autumn.

Nissan Ariya

Nissan Ariya was unveiled in July… 2020! It will finally be in concessions at the start of the school year, as the launch has been delayed due to a shortage of semiconductors. This large crossover, which changes the look of the Japanese brand, is Nissan’s first electric model designed on a dedicated basis, the CMF-EV. It offers three major technical configurations, with 63 kWh battery and 218 hp power or 87 kWh battery and 242 and 306 hp power. Starting price: €47,300.

Peugeot e-208… (and e-308?)

Before it is restyled, in 2023, the e-208 will develop its range with a new base version Like, which will make electric a little more accessible at Peugeot. Thanks to optimized equipment, this model will also announce an improved autonomy, with 400 km. But the surprise could come from the e-308. The Lion has already confirmed the launch in 2023 of a 100% electric 308. The brand could take advantage of its presence at the Paris Motor Show to reveal it.

Renault 4 ever

The future electric 4L

4L is back! Or almost. After the R5, Renault will actually launch another neo-retro model, inspired by the R4. At the start of the school year, there will first be a concept, the production version to be launched in 2025. This prototype will faithfully announce the lines of this vehicle, which will take the air of a small SUV for good reason. anchor in the fashion of the moment! It is also linked to the practical and functional side that Renault retained from the first R4. The production model will share its CMF-BEV base with the new R5.

Renault Traffic

There is something for every taste, every use! In terms of electric vans, Renault already offers the Kangoo and the Master, with the latter having just improved its autonomy. And in between, Traffic, forgot? A bug was soon fixed. Renault will unveil a 100% electric version of the Trafic in a few weeks. It could use 60 and 90 kWh batteries to offer autonomy that does not scare away craftsmen!

Skoda Vision 7S Concept

At the start of the school year, Skoda takes a new aesthetic start. The Vision 7S concept will lay the foundation for the Czech company’s new design, called “Modern Solid”. We must therefore expect angular shapes that give an impression of robustness! Skoda has announced that the Vision 7S will be a family SUV, with 7 seats and a 100% electric motor. It should give a taste of the Kodiaq replacement.

Toyota bZ4X

King of the hybrid, Toyota has voluntarily taken its time tackling the electric market, waiting for it to mature… and become inevitable. The brand is set to begin deliveries of its first electric model designed on a dedicated basis this fall, the bZ4X SUV. The concern is that the model is affected by a major problem with the attachment of the wheels, which has already led to a recall in the United States. And what risks disrupting the launch with us (the contact, Toyota has not yet responded). bZ4X can therefore mark the return to school for better or for worse!

Wine proof VF8

VinFast VF8

This summer, on vacation, you may have encountered ORNIs, unidentified rolling objects. With the electric car, we see new brands appear on our roads, for example Aiways or Polestar. And behind the wheel you ask yourself “what is this?”. At the start of the school year, you will probably tell when you come across the first Vinfast delivered, especially the VF8 SUV, a Vietnamese family car, which promises up to 471 km of autonomy.
