Let‘s look at new models coming to European markets in 2022.
Autocar has compiled a comprehensive list of 2022 newcomers. This time we would like to draw your attention to November arrivals. There are ten of them.
The Audi E-Tron receives updates for the 2023 model year including trim enhancements, a larger 95-kWh battery, and correspondingly range increase to 373 miles vs the previous 249 miles.
The BMW iX1 is an all-electric version of the new X1. It is coming to take its place in the rapidly expanding EV lineup of the Bavarian brand as a replacement for the i3. The latter will likely say ‘Goodbye’ at around the same time.
The Lotus Eletre is an all-electric Hyper SUV with a battery pack of more than 100 kWh and power of over 592 hp. This is the latest vehicle in a line of Lotus road cars. The model reaches a top speed of 162 mph and accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in less than 3.0 seconds. Expect it will cost about £100,000 in the UK.
The Ferrari SP3 Daytona is a new vehicle in the Icona series, a tribute to mid-rear-engined sports cars and a stylistic nod to historic racers. Under the hood, there is a mid-mounted 12-cylinder beast making 829 horsepower. The price of £1.7 million also impresses.
The Honda Civic Type R returns for the 2023MY with exterior and interior tweaks, evaluated chassis, and a more powerful 2.0-liter turbo-four (the current one produces 306 hp and 295 lb-ft).
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 N is a high-performance variant of the Ioniq 5 electric crossover. It will likely share its 577-hp dual-motor powertrain with the Kia EV6 GT. The ability to speed up from zero to 62 mph in less than 4.0 seconds makes the 5N the fastest Hyundai model to date.
The all-electric Kia EV6 GT is also in the cards for Europe. Autocar believes that in a range-topping GT-Line S variant the crossover may well outpace the Porsche Taycan 4S.
The Precept Concept-inspired Polestar 3 premium electric SUV using innovative sustainable technology is a platform-mate of the Volvo Embla and will be produced at the same U.S. facility.
The Smart #1 5-door compact, all-electric, rear-wheel-drive-only crossover is similar in size to the Mercedes-Benz EQA. So, it is Smart’s largest vehicle to date and its first EV, with over 270-mile range and a 150-kW fast-charging capability. Production should begin in late 2022.
The Toyota GR Corolla has the potential to become a star, with its 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that delivers 300 hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque and pairs a 6-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT).
