If you plan to buy an electric SUV, in the next three seasons, the offer will be much bigger. The evolution has already started and we can find a few models already. The price is dropping with the growing competition. Plus, there are a few models to join the 2023 electric SUVs lineup. We’ll go through the expectations of every model we believe will be available soon.
2023 Tesla Model X
Although the oldest model on the list, the 2023 Tesla Model X will still be one of the hottest EVs out there. When the US company launched the first-ever electric SUV, it was too expensive. However, it is the quickest SUV in the market that will sprint 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds with the Ludicrous Mode. Nevertheless, the biggest obstacle is the price starting at $80,000. Performance-oriented models will be in a six-digit realm.
2023 Jaguar I-Pace
Another model that can be called a veteran. The I-Pace is here since 2018 and it will still be one of the best 2023 electric SUVs. JLR is not slowing down and there might be a few more models soon. Some say electric Range Rover is the next project. The 2023 Jaguar I-Pace is going to hold its specs, making 400 horsepower and coveting nearly 300 miles. You can get your I-Pace for $70,000,
2023 Hyundai Kona
Speaking of old-school 2023 electric SUVs, here is another well-known member of the exclusive company. The new Kona is still using an EV drivetrain and you can cover 258 miles in a single charge. Compared to previous models, the 2023 Kona will be way more affordable. The MSRP starts at $37,500 and you can upgrade it with a few more options. Finally, Hyundai offers a 10-year warranty, which is one of the best things about the vehicle.
2023 Volvo XC40 Recharge
Volvo is not joking around. Soon, its entire fleet is going to be electrified. But, the first model ever to appear in the SUV segment, is the XC40 Recharge. The subcompact crossover is pretty expensive, starting above $55,000. But, it is not easy to compete with the luxury Volvo cars are offering. Outputs of 75-kWh battery packs are 400 horsepower and 200 miles of range. Compared to its rivals, such as Kona, the 2023 Volvo XC40 Recharge will make fewer miles. But, Hyundai’s and Volvo’s ranks are also to be discussed.

2023 Tesla Model Y
Another Tesla on the list is the new Model Y. After big criticism for the price of the Model X, the US carmaker decided to make a less luxurious and more affordable SUV. The 2023 Tesla Model Y is going to cost under $40,000 and the lineup will be complete. Long-range models came first and the release of the standard range RWD SUV was a bit late. All in all, the best you can get from the Model Y is 325 miles in a single charge, while the performance editions sprint 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
2023 Kia Soul
Another member of the 2023 electric SUVs lineup from Korea is Kia Soul. The small crossover shares a lot in common with Hyundai Kona. The electric battery is producing 201 horsepower. The range of the EV is 243 miles. Kia can boost its performance soon. The price is going to start from $35,000. The exterior might be one of the best things about the 2023 Kia Soul if you are a fan of the boxy style.
2023 Ford Mach E
Mustang serves as the inspiration for the 2023 Ford Mach E. However, it is not going to be a muscle SUV, but an all-electric model. Buyers can choose between rear- and four-wheel drive, as well as two different engine configurations. The maximum range will be 305 miles. Ford is going to install the most advanced infotainment features. The price is also pretty reasonable, starting from $44,000.
2023 BMW iX3
The first electric SUV by the German carmaker is already out, but not available in the US yet. The 2023 BMW iX3 will definitely be there to light up the market. A 70-kWh battery is good for 270 horsepower and the company announced more than 250 miles in a single charge. But, after EPA tests, we assume the range will drop to 200 miles. This is one of the 2023 electric SUVs which belongs to the luxury class, so the price is going to be way higher than you expect for the compact crossover SUV.
2023 Cadillac Lyriq
General Motors has a new motto: “Our electric future is now”. Well, the first EV to arrive is the GMC Hummer truck, in 2022. But, there is a concept that will be launched right after the pickup – the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq. It is the first EV the company announced. We know that two configurations will be available – single- and dual-motor. From Cadillac come details about the 300-mile range. Pretty ambitious.
2023 GMC Hummer SUV
When the truck hits the market, the next vehicle to follow is the 2023 GMC Hummer SUV. The electric lineup is growing, but so far, there are no production models available at dealerships. Hummer might be a star of the 2023 electric SUVs lineup if it carries over some of the features from the pickup truck. Crab Walk allows the vehicle to moves diagonally, enhancing off-road capabilities. Extract Mode is providing more space under the body. Of course, the return of the nameplate brings back memories of one of the boldest designs in the SUV market.
2023 Mercedes-Benz EQC
The same story like with the BMW. Mercedes EQC is ready for the US market and it will be one of the priorities for the German carmaker. Besides this one, there are a few other classes that will exploit the EQ concept. Compact crossover SUV can produce 400 horsepower and covers 230-260 miles, depending on the configuration. Mercedes is well-known for its luxury offer and the price reflects this. The EQC is a premium option with the base MSRP starting just under $70,000.
2023 Porsche Macan
The Tri-Point manufacturer is going to have huge competition. Porsche is upgrading the PHEV configuration that makes mid-size Cayenne one of the most powerful SUVs in the market. Macan is the upcoming star of the 2023 electric SUVs market. Early reports say the vehicle will have a range of 400 miles. Well, that is expected for a high-end model. Rear-wheel drive is standard and buyers can upgrade the system with the AWD. Sales will start in mid-2023. Nevertheless, prototypes are already being tested. The price is totally unpredictable, but we could see it somewhere at the same level as the Mercedes EQC.
The 2023 Macan is part of the next-gen SUV that arrives in 2022.
2023 Bollinger B1
We are moving to the startup projects that drew attention some while ago. Well, there are plenty of such models, but Bollinger presented two interesting solutions that could be in production soon. Some fans can say the Hummer-like SUV and truck are already coming back. But, it is not going to kill the interest in the Bollinger B1. Announced specifications are stunning – 615 horsepower, 670 lb-ft of torque, 75-minute fast recharge, 4.5 sec for 0-60 mph. However, the price is jaw-dropping as well – $125,000.
2023 Byton M-Byte
The Byton M-Byte looks like the production-ready model that will certainly be one of the 2023 electric SUVs available at dealerships. The vehicle is not putting out spectacular numbers. It can cover 230-270 miles, depending on the battery size, and sprints to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds. The price is another reason why we would like to see the M-Byte in the US. The MSRP should start under $50,000 and experts are already comparing the Chinese SUV to Mercedes and Tesla.
2023 Jeep Wrangler Magneto
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler Magneto is the next step in the evolution of the legendary 4×4 vehicle. Last year, FCA presented the Wrangler 4xe, the plug-in hybrid version. Now, the Magneto is going to meet modern demands. Well, Jeep wants to stay competitive, especially with the Ford Mach E and Hummer joining the 2023 electric SUVs market. The concept is being tested and we expect an official announcement pretty soon. Details are unavailable. One thing is sure – the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Magneto will be one of the first electric off-road SUVs.

2023 Lexus EV
Like the Jeep, we can say the same for Lexus. The premium brand is in the hybrid market for a long time, and it is a matter of time when the Japanese company will debut in the EV segment. RX is the best-seller in the mid-size luxury SUV segment thanks to its versatility, especially the efficient hybrid model. Now, the next project is going to be the 2023 Lexus EV. The vehicle should appear like the concept first, while the production is coming in the following year. Those are still speculations, though.

2023 Nissan Ariya
The latest concept by Nissan. Ariya is the platform that will underpin all the future electric crossovers and SUVs. The Japanese company is still a record holder – LEAF is the best-selling electric car ever. But, it was easy to achieve without the competition. Now, more and more EVs are available and the company needs to rebuild its reputation and Ariya seems to be a perfect concept. The premiere went well, fans and experts are happy with what they saw. That is the green light for Nissan to start producing Ariya.
2023 Rivian R1S
Some called it the biggest rival to Tesla. But, Rivian didn’t fulfill the expectations. Nevertheless, their concept vehicles are still highly anticipated. Rumors say the 2023 Rivian R1S is coming. At some point, the SUV was certain, with reports about big financial injection by Amazon and Ford. But, it seems those were only speculations. Highlights of this electric SUV were the power – 750 hp, acceleration time 3.0 sec, and enormous torque – 850 lb-ft.
2023 Toyota bZ4X
The 2023 Toyota bZ4X is a joint project by two Japanese carmakers. The platform is going to underpin 2023 electric SUVs by Toyota and Subaru. According to reports, the first vehicle that will exploit the concept is Rav4 (as expected). The base price is expected at $37,000. It’s a bit strange, since the Prime PHEV costs more, and EV technology is more expensive. Still, the production is starting soon and you can recognize EV models thanks to the bZ prefix.
