In recent months electric cars have started to appear in line with rising energy prices in various countries, including fuel. The year 2023 seems to be a momentum for electric vehicles that are claimed to use environmentally friendly energy. The reason is that there is currently a transition from gasoline-fueled cars to electric cars.
Car manufacturers are competing to develop electric vehicles (EV) with various innovations. It was done by giant car manufacturers including Chevrolet, Hyundai, Ford, and so on. While Tesla has already started production of electric cars. Now Tesla is the global EV master. So what electric cars will be launched in 2023.
Lucid Water Sapphire
Lucid Group Inc. is an electric vehicle manufacturer based in Newark, California. Founded in 2007 by Bernard Tse, Sam Weng, Sheaupyng Lin. Lucid Motors is under the auspices of the Lucid Group which produces electric cars. The company will reportedly launch its newest EV, the Lucid Air Sapphire, in 2023.
Lucid excels in performance in its electric car. Lucid is a Tesla competitor in terms of performance. The Lucid Air Sapphire rivals the Model S Plaid, and not only that, Lucid is trying to beat it. Sapphire is a Lucid Air that relies on reliable performance and high configuration.
The Lucid Air Sapphire has a tri-motor AWD system. The Sapphire can travel 0-60 mph in two seconds. While 0-100 mph can be reached in 4 seconds. Lucid's press release calls the Sapphire “the world's first electric luxury super-sport sedan,” which is wild. Lucid Air Sapphire is currently in production and there are no final specifications from the company. However, from the official website, the Sapphire will be equipped with 1,200 horsepower.
Silverado is an EV pick-up from Chevrolet which was launched the previous year. However, the company plans to redesign (re-design) the Silverado and will re-launch it in 2023.
According to Chevy, the electric Silverado RST will put out more than 660 horsepower in Wide Open Watts mode. This is no small number, and the truck also puts out over 780 lb-ft of torque with Chevrolet's Wide Open Watts high-performance mode activated.
The Silverado EV also has a towing capacity of 10,000 lbs, which is good but not extraordinary considering what Rivian did with the super-sophisticated R1T. The Rivian R1T can pull up to 11,000 pounds, more than the Silverado. In the world of pickup truck stat wars, more payload is important.
The Silverado RST also promises up to 400 miles of range on a single charge, which is pretty impressive, especially for a vehicle of this size. The Silverado has features reminiscent of Rivian's Gear Tunnel.
The Silverado can extend its berth by opening the cabin and bed divisions through a collapsible door. This feature, called Multi-Flex Midgate with Pass-Through, is actually very useful and will expand the already huge space that the Silverado EV has to offer. This feature may even be more practical than what Rivian offers with the Gear Tunnel. According to the Chevrolet website, the 2024 model year Silverado EV will be available during the fall of 2023.
The Chevy Blazer EV will be available in the summer of 2023. This truck looks amazing from a styling perspective. The best way to describe its appearance is to say that it resembles the Mach-E but with a sportier body kit.
Maybe you thought this would be a boring Chevrolet SUV, you would be wrong. A quick look at the statistics for the SS model reveals that the estimated acceleration from 0-60 mph will be under 4 seconds. That's very fast, especially for an SUV in its class.
The Blazer EV could potentially sell very well, especially considering that SUVs generally sell like hotcakes. Add to that the fact that EVs are in vogue, and it's a great combination. The Blazer EV will go on sale for around $44,995, according to Chevrolet.
Cybertruck is the biggest meme in the EV pickup truck world. All of Tesla's competitors want to beat the Cybertruck in the market, and with a very good product offering. The Rivian R1T has caught the attention of Cybertruck enthusiasts, but this unique Tesla pickup shouldn't be overlooked. If the Cybertruck made its debut in 2023, it would be something special.
At Tesla's annual shareholder meeting at the Gigafactory in Austin, Texas, Musk promised the launch of the Tesla Cybertruck by mid-2023 while stating that production would begin at the Austin plant.
“The trucks will be produced from this plant in the middle of next year… You will see us installing production engines in the next few months,” Musk said. The Cybertruck promises supercar performance combined with truck utility.
Hyundai IONIQ 6
Hyundai has experienced significant developments in recent years. The South Korean manufacturer has launched the IONIQ 5 electric car. This makes it one of the best EVs on the electric vehicle market.
In 2023, Hyundai is rumored to be launching its next-generation electric car, the IONIQ 6. This electric car will have a retro-futuristic appearance, equipped with LED pixel car parts. These LED lights will make the IONIQ 6 have a special impression.
