Straight Off the Factory Floor - 4 New Evs For 2024

 Published 7th February 2024
Electric Vehicles  New Launches 

With new car registration dates in 2024 just around the corner and a selection of 24 plates to be released, we wanted to look into what offerings the auto industry is bringing to the world this year. We were not interested in minor tweaks to long-established models or simple facelifts giving them a cool new look. We wanted brand new models to the market that only become available in the UK in 2024 and we wanted variety.

So, enjoy our breakdown of some of the coolest electric cars from the biggest names to look out for in 2024. Each guaranteed to make your eyes widen and your mouth moisten.

Polestar 3

Polestar 3

From the front the Polestar 3 looks like it is ready for battle with its Thor’s hammer LED headlights and its intrusive yet seductive curves that scream – you will notice me, and your jaw will drop. The interior is awash with quality materials and high-end craftsmanship and the upholstery is made from Polestar’s MicroTech material which is 100% recycled, and the front seats include a massage function.

If you want tech, then the massive 14.5” central display unit with its anti-reflective coating that connects to a Bowers & Wilkins 25 speaker, 3D Surround Sound and Dolby Atmos audio system should show you this car is crammed full and the additional headrest speakers will reaffirm this. With a range of nearly 350 miles per charge and capable of completing 0-60 in 4.6 seconds, the Polestar 3 is the marriage of comfort and performance.


Volkswagen ID7

The first thing to mention about the Volkswagen ID7 is the WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Testing Procedure) range and rapid charging capabilities. VW has stated the ID7 can achieve over 385 miles per charge, thanks to its 77KwH battery, and, combined with its 175KwH peak DC charging unit, can achieve a charge from 10%-80% in only 28 minutes, making this the ideal car for uninterrupted cruising.

Inside, you will be immediately drawn to the large 15” touchscreen central display, which allows you to control all vehicle settings and infotainment with ease. With precision climate control you can redirect every vent to any angle that suits you by dragging your finger across. One of the major benefits of the VW ID7 is the spacious cabin, which provides comfort and storage for driver and passengers alike.

Lotus Emeya

Lotus Emeya

When it comes to Norfolk, the only names on anyone's lips are Colman’s and Lotus, and we think they’re both mustard. We are not sure what delicious condiment Colman’s is bringing in 2024 but we do know Lotus are unveiling the Emeya EV supercar.



The fully electric car from German giants BMW gives you exactly what you expect from the badge. The BMW IX2 is a classy and stylish new EV with great performance. It boasts an expected WLTP range of just under 300 miles per charge and a 0%-80% charge time of 30 minutes. 308hp and 295lb-ft of torque help the IX3 achieve 0-62mph in 5.6 seconds.

As with the majority of EVs being released currently, most of the driving assistance and infotainment is controlled by a central touchscreen console, with regular software updates to keep you in the loop. It can be fully integrated with multiple apps, including Amazon Alexa Car Integration, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and more.
