Best electric cars arriving in 2024

It's clear the Australian market is ready for EVs as no less than 34 new models will launch in 2024.

Love or hate them, electric cars are the future of personal transportation - just look at how many new EVs will be made available in Australia in 2024!

From tiny tailpipe-emissions-free hot hatches all the way up to full-sized electric vans, the EV market is charging forward with more variety and choice than ever before.

So, if an EV hasn't caught your eye yet, chances are you'll find something that fits the bill on this list.

01. 01. Toyota bZ4X - February

The bZ4X will compete against the popular Tesla Model Y and Hyundai Ioniq 5.

Though Toyota's first all-electric model was due to launch in 2023, delay after delay means it will now land in local showrooms in February 2024.

As a mid-size SUV-like model, the weirdly-named bZ4X will compete against the popular Tesla Model Y and Hyundai Ioniq 5.

Full Australian specs are still to be locked in, as is pricing, but expect around 440km of driving range from the bZ4X.

02. Jeep Avenger - H2

The Avenger will be a front-drive-only affair (at least initially).

Jeep reckons it's first EV still carries the brand's 'go anywhere' attitude, and even sports dedicated off-road driving modes.

However, the Avenger will be a front-drive-only affair (at least initially), with its single electric motor making 115kW/260Nm.

Driving range when the battery is full is around 400km though, so there's plenty of juice to get you there and back.

03. Abarth 500e Turismo - H1

The Abarth 500e Turismo will touch down locally in the first half of 2024.

With instant power and torque afforded by electric motors, the Abarth 500e Turismo could be the best thing to happen to the pint-sized hatchback.

Abarth has also fitted the 500e Turismo with a unique sound generator that will make it sound like you are driving something with an internal combustion engine.

Cool or not, that's up for you to decide, but the Abarth 500e Turismo will touch down locally in the first half of 2024.

04. Audi Q8 50 e-tron - H1

The Q8 50 e-tron competes against the BMW iX and Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV.

The new Q8 e-tron might look familiar to those that know their Audis, and that's because its the original e-tron with a facelift and name change.

Though the higher-spec 55 variants will launch in 2023, the more affordable 50 won't be made available until 2024.

As a large all-electric premium SUV, the Q8 50 e-tron competes against the BMW iX and Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV.

05. Audi SQ8 e-tron - Q2

The SQ8 e-tron can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 4.5 seconds.

Electric cars aren't always about efficiency, they can also be sporty and raucous - as evidenced by the Audi SQ8 e-tron.

Dialing up the wick to the tune of 370kW/973Nm means this large electric SUV can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 4.5 seconds.

And despite its potent performance, the SQ8 e-tron is still good for a driving range of 316km with a full charge.

06. Audi Q4 e-tron - H1

The Q4 e-tron is aimed squarely at stealing sales away from the Volvo XC40 and Tesla Model Y.

The Audi Q4 e-tron has been available overseas for a number of years, but now it's finally Australia's turn.

As a mid-size electric SUV, the Q4 e-tron is aimed squarely at stealing sales away from the Volvo XC40 and Tesla Model Y but does so with the usual Audi twist.

The Q4 e-tron will be available in two body styles - SUV and more stylish Sportback - and should be on sale in the first half of 2024.

07. Mini Cooper EV - Q3

This 2024 model should be fun, fast and relatively affordable.

We've seen electric Mini Coopers before, but none quite like this.

And that's because this new-generation car is electric first, and built in conjunction with China's Great Wall Motors.

Pricing and specifications are yet to be locked in for Australia, but if past iterations are anything to go by, this 2024 model should be fun, fast and relatively affordable.

08. Mini Countryman EV - Q3

The Mini Countryman EV arrives in the third quarter of 2024.

Though the Mini Countryman has always been a bit of a quirky option for small SUV buyers, this new-generation, all-electric model might change that.

And that's because EVs are having their moment right now, and models like the Kia Niro, Hyundai Kona, MG ZS, Mercedes-Benz EQA and Lexus UX are all popular all-electric options.

Could the Mini Countryman EV boost sales in a way previous iterations could not? From the third quarter of 2024, we will find out.

09. BMW iX1 eDrive20 - Q1

The iX1 wears a price tag of $78,900 before on-road costs.

BMW is set to make its electric cars more affordable with bargain versions of the the i4, iX3 and iX1 - the latter of which won't arrive in Australia until early 2024.

Priced at $78,900 before on-road costs, it cuts around $6000 from the asking price of the iX1 xDrive30.

However, the new electric SUV still produces a respectable power and torque output, while also able to travel up to around 475km on a single charge.

10. Chery Omoda 5 EV - H2

Reports suggest the Omoda5 EV could have a driving range of around 450km. (Image: Paultan.org)

Tasked with spearheading Chery's relaunch into Australia, the Omoda 5 has turned heads thanks to its unique styling and stacked equipment list.

And these will also be traits carried over to the all-electric version, which arguably suits the futuristic look of the Omoda 5 much better than its petrol-powered counterparts.

Due to arrive in the second half of 2024, the Omoda 5 EV will go toe-to-toe against the Hyundai Kona, Kia Niro and others.

11. Ford E-Transit Custom - H1

The electric version of the Transit Custom could make a sizeable splash in Australia.

Did you know Ford Australia's first all-electric model was a van? Yep, that was the E-Transit that launched ahead of the Mustang Mach-E.

And Ford will double down on the tailpipe emissions-free light-commercial-vehicle space with the arrival of the smaller E-Transit Custom in the first half of 2024.

As one of the most popular options in the mid-size van space, the electric version of the Transit Custom could make a sizeable splash in Australia.

12. Ford Puma EV - H2

Details are currently scarce due to the fact the car has not yet been officially revealed.

A few years ago, if you wanted an all-electric small SUV, you'd really only have two options - the MG ZS or Hyundai Kona.

But that has quickly changed as the market has exploded, and the latest model to arrive from Ford is the Puma EV due in the second half of 2024.

Details are currently scarce due to the fact the car has not yet been officially revealed, but expect it to also herald a facelift for the rest of the Puma range.

13. Hyundai Ioniq 5 N - H1

The flagship EV hot hatch wears a price tag of $111,000, before on-road costs.

A few years ago, the idea of a $100,000-plus Hyundai would have been absurd, but here we are.

The Ioniq 5 N builds on Hyundai's established N brand with a flagship EV hot hatch that costs $111,000 before on-road costs.

However, a 478kW/770Nm capable dual-motor set-up means the Ioniq 5 N can outpace models more than double its price.

14. Hyundai Ioniq 7 - H2

Expect the Ioniq 7 to take styling cues from the Concept Seven.

With the Kia EV9 due in local showrooms by the end of 2023, the Hyundai version, known as the Ioniq 7, is sure to follow close behind.

We expect to see it in Australia in the second half of 2024, and will sit atop the all-electric Ioniq range as a large, three-row SUV.

Details are currently scarce as it hasn't even been revealed in production form, but expect styling cues from the Concept Seven.

15. Renault Megane E-Tech - Q1

Pricing kicks off from $64,990 before on-road costs for the Megane E-Tech.

Even Renault will be fielding an all-electric competitor in 2024, with the Megane E-Tech set to land early.

Pricing kicks off from $64,990 before on-road costs, undercutting the Kia Niro EV by about $600.

However, with a 454km driving range and 160kW/300Nm electric motor in tow, it should draw plenty of attention from potential EV buyers.

This isn't the first time a Kangoo EV has been available in Australia however, as the older-generation Kangoo ZE was offered in the past in limited numbers.

However, with the EV market booming, expect to see the 2024 Kangoo E-Tech find many more buyers.

LDV is quickly charging up the light-commercial EV space, first with its eT60 ute and then eDeliver 9 large van.

But next will be the e-Deliver 7 mid-size van, which aims to take on the likes of the Toyota HiAce and Hyundai Staria-Load.

The Cyberster rivals the likes of the BMW Z4 and Porsche 718 Boxster.

MG Australia will graduate from its cheap and cheerful roots with the Cyberster sports car set to land in the latter half of 2024.

As a two-seat, drop-top electric car, the Cyberster is unique in the Australian market, but expect to pay over $100,000 for the model.

That puts it right in line with petrol-powered rivals like the BMW Z4 and Porsche 718 Boxster.

Competing against the Mercedes-Benz EQE, Audi Q8 e-tron and BMW iX, the Polestar 3 kicks off from $132,900 before on-road costs.
