We continue to inform you of new models coming out this year in Europe. This time let’s take a look at the vehicles to launch in July 2022.
Autocar has done a great job of collecting all the newcomers to the British car market in a single list.
Those models that are introduced for this market will appear (possibly, have already appeared, or are available to order) in the markets of other European countries. We already reported about May and June new vehicles, now let’s see what awaits us in the middle of summer – in July.
The revamped Alpina B3 and D3S are extremely potent but comfortable all-rounders.
The Audi A3 in a Citycarver version will probably offer similar gasoline and diesel engines and technologies to the regular A3.
The BMW 3 Series got updates to its iDrive communications and entertainment system with a huge 15.0-inch central touchscreen. As for engines, expect to meet familiar gasoline, diesel, and plug-in hybrid ones.
The DS 7 Crossback enters its four model year and gets some improvements inside and out.
The Ineos Grenadier 4×4 off-road utility vehicle is set to go into production in July. It is available with BMW’s 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engines, 282-hp gasoline and 245-hp diesel, mated to a ZF 8-speed transmission. A hydrogen-powered version is expected as well; 2 commercial body styles will be available in addition to a regular model.
The Kia Niro has received a refreshed design, refined tech, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electric powertrains with performance and efficiency boosts.
The Lamborghini Urus is coming this year with some minor tweaks, while a plug-in hybrid version will join in 2023.
The Mercedes-AMG One plug-in hybrid sports car features Formula One-derived technology. This limited-run model (275 units only) at a price of 2.72 million USD has five motors with different functions (one ICE and four electric motors) with a total output exceeding 1000 hp. The production is expected to start in July, but customers will take deliveries in late 2022.
The Nissan Ariya and the Toyota bZ4X electric crossovers will finally land in the UK. The first is priced from £41,845 for an FWD model with a 63-kWh battery to £58,440 for a 389-hp e-Performance variant with an 87-kWh battery pack. The second costs from £41,950.
The Skoda Enyaq Coupé iV vRS performance electric model (upper photo) shares a 295-hp four-wheel-drive powertrain with the Volkswagen ID.5 GTX. Its torque is 338 pound-feet, and a driving range is 309 miles vs the ID.5 GTX’s 296 miles. The car needs 6.5 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph.
