The electric car segment is really starting to hot up. Last year was already a big-hitter when it came to new models, but it looks like 2023 is going to be even more exciting in terms of new releases.

But what should you be looking out for and what are the models that are going to get heads turning? We’re taking a look.

Audi A6 e-tron

Audi has been storming ahead with its new EV releases of late, but it’s set to really kick into gear in 2023 with the arrival of the A6 e-tron. Set to be one of the firm’s most practical electric vehicles, expect plenty of interior space and a decent amount of range, too.

Though we’re yet to see the A6 e-tron in full - or hear its official range and performance figures - expect this model to get some of Audi’s latest features and technology.

BMW i5

BMW is another manufacturer really stepping up its EV game and it’s expected that 2023 will see the reveal of the firm’s new i5. Essentially an electric version of the current 5 Series, it’s a car that’ll go directly up against the Audi A6 e-tron.

Much like the Audi, it’s likely that the i5 will major on spaciousness and comfort, as well as bring a good amount of electric range.

Fisker Ocean

This year will also see the arrival of the Fisker Ocean. It’s a car that has been in the works for quite a while, but it appears that this year will see its arrival at long last. Set to bring a range of up to 390 miles, the Ocean will cost from £34,990 when it goes on sale here too.

But on top of that impressive electric range, the Ocean also incorporates some cool features like a revolving central infotainment screen.

Mercedes EQE SUV

Mercedes has already been expanding its electric SUV range with a good amount of pace and the new EQE will add to that. Sitting above the EQC SUV but below the larger EQS SUV in the range, it’ll offer up to 367 miles of electric power from a single charge.

Plus, there will be the option of either front- or all-wheel-drive versions, with the latter providing more capability in slippery conditions.

Peugeot e-208

Peugeot’s e-208 has already proven to be one of the most popular - and affordable - EVs in the UK, which is why the French firm is making sure that it stays current through a select number of updates. It’s getting more range, rising from 225 miles to 248 miles, courtesy of a more refined battery setup.

Power has been boosted from 134 to 154bhp, too, meaning that the e-208 will have even more zip than before.

Polestar 3

Polestar has started establishing itself as a go-to electric car brand here in the UK, but up until this point it has only had one model to offer - the Polestar 2. That’s all set to change in 2023, however, with the arrival of the Polestar 3. Top-spec versions will get well over 500bhp, too, showing just how much power this new EV will have to offer.

But it’ll also bring a range of up to 379 miles while also incorporating a range of semi-autonomous driving functions.

Volkswagen ID.7

Finally, there’s the Volkswagen ID.7. Building on the firm’s ever-expanding ID range of electric vehicles, the new ID.7 will bring an impressive range of up to 435 miles, making it Volkswagen’s longest-distance EV by some margin.

This impressive range isn’t just brought through battery technology, mind you, but by a serious focus on aerodynamics, with its design made to ensure that it cuts through the air as effectively as possible.
