Top 10 NEW Electric Vehicles in 2021


thanks to curology for sponsoring
today's video if you watched the super
bowl you may have noticed electric
this seems to confirm what i and many
others have been saying for a while
which is that
2021 is truly the year of the ev
or bitcoin one or the other now it's
safe to say tesla is currently the
leader in the ev space
i've owned a tesla for almost three
years and it's been one of the best
purchases of my life
but even though teslas are superior in
many ways they aren't the only option
when it comes to choosing a good
electric vehicle
and the more evs that come out the more
competition there is the better it is
for us the consumers
now there are some exciting new evs
coming to the market this year so let's
go over my top 10 electric vehicles
that i'm looking forward to the most in
now this list is sorted by price from
the most affordable to the most
kicking off this list is the chevy bolt
which is a small hatchback that starts
around 32
000 and should hit the market in mid
the bolt has been around for a while and
has always been fairly mediocre in my
eyes when compared to something like a
tesla model 3 because
up until now they've been around the
same price range i was never a big fan
of the looks and performance of the bolt
but the new bolt
has been redesigned and also comes in a
new variant called the bolt euv
which stands for electric utility
vehicle and is considered to be a
crossover suv
and has more space than the regular bolt
as well as a slightly different exterior
the thing that excites me the most about
the new chevy bolt and the bolt euv
are the low prices the new bolt is
actually 5500
cheaper than the previous year's model
and the new bolt euv
starts around 34 000 and if the new
green act bill passes it could give gm a
seven thousand dollar tax credit for
four hundred thousand more electric
which could potentially make the bolt
and bolt euv
start around twenty five thousand
dollars and twenty seven thousand
dollars respectively
that would be an insane deal the chevy
bolt models are the most affordable evs
that have at least 250 miles of range
with the bolt ev claiming to get up to
259 miles of range on a full
charge the bolt euv launch edition will
also be gm's first vehicle to have their
super cruise
driver assistance package both bolt
models are capable of dc fast charging
of around 100 miles of range
in just 30 minutes the only downside is
there is no
all-wheel drive option on either of the
bolt models only a single front motor
but if you're looking for a super
affordable electric vehicle with a fresh
new design
and at least 250 miles of range the bolt
is a great choice
now next up is probably the eevee i'm
looking forward to the most
that is under 50 000 and not a tesla
it's the nissan aria which is a compact
crossover suv that starts around 40
000 and should hit the market in the
second half of 2021.
now tesla gets a lot of credit for
bringing electric vehicles to the
mainstream but
nissan actually had the best-selling
electric vehicle for a while with the
so they are one of the ogs in the ev
space and they know how to make a great
electric vehicle with purpose
now when i first saw the aria i was
initially skeptical about the design
it kind of reminded me of a giant
duracell battery on wheels
but the more i saw it the more i became
a fan of the sleek and sporty style
it comes in two battery size options
either standard range or
long range and either can be configured
as front wheel drive or
all-wheel drive and the full charge
driving range is estimated to be between
200 and 300 miles based on the
with the standard range all-wheel drive
having the least amount of range and the
long-range front-wheel drive having the
most amount of range
the styling and features are the things
that excite me the most about the aria
it has an optional driver assistance
system called pro pilot assist
which looks promising and the interior
tech looks amazing
featuring dual 12.3 inch displays that
serve as both the digital gauge cluster
and the infotainment screen it also
comes with apple carplay
android auto and in-dash navigation the
quick performance should be a good
competitor to the tesla model y
with the aria expected to go zero to 60
in less than
five seconds also nissan should still
have the 7 500
federal tax credit even if the new green
act bill doesn't get passed which could
bring the price down to around 30
000 for some customers next is the vw
id4 which is a crossover suv that starts
around 40
000 and will be available for purchase
in the first half of 2021.
now where the nissan arya excelled in
sporty design with performance in mind
the vw id4 feels like it's geared more
toward being the quintessential
family vehicle given the slower 0-60
acceleration speed of only
8.5 seconds on the rear-wheel drive
model now vw says the id4 will be able
to travel
up to 250 miles on a full charge
and comes in a few different options the
pro first edition
and pro s at first all id4 models will
offer only rear-wheel drive
but the all-wheel drive models will join
the lineup later this year as well as a
less expensive base model coming in
the id4 is capable of dc fast charging
and in the us it will come with three
years of free fast charging with
electrify america
which is a nice perk and the most
exciting part about the vw id4 is the
quality you can expect
for the relatively affordable price if
you're eligible for the current 7 500
tax credit this can bring the price down
to around 33 000
which is awesome given the reputation
that vw has built
with their cars in the past it's also
capable of towing 2 700 pounds and the
interior has a contemporary design with
some high-tech features
and ample cargo space cloth seats are
standard but the optional statement
package adds faux leather upholstery
along with 12-way power adjustable front
seats and massage and memory
now the id4 comes standard with a 10
inch infotainment touchscreen that can
be upgraded to a larger 12-inch display
navigation is standard with both
displays and is expected to have
apple carplay and android auto as
standard options as well
all id4 models also come with a 5.3 inch
digital gauge display
and voice recognition capability now
this next ev is probably the one with a
chance of the most
mainstream success based on what i've
seen so far
the ford mustang maki is an electric
crossover suv
that starts around 43 000 and is ready
to order right now
except for the top of the line gt model
which comes in late summer
it comes in two battery sizes in either
rear or all-wheel drive
and can provide anywhere from 211 miles
up to 305 miles of range on a full
charge depending on the configuration
which in my opinion is way too many to
choose from now you may be wondering
what makes this a mustang because
literally nothing can be tied back to a
normal gasoline mustang vehicle that we
know well it seems to be that the main
reason the name includes mustang is for
brand recognition ford wanted to have a
recognizable name for the mainstream in
order to have a desirable vehicle
that can compete with tesla but it's not
just a name that competes with tesla the
mustang maki packs a punch
especially on the gt performance edition
that goes zero to 60
in 3.5 seconds which matches the
performance model y
but with that option you're giving up
about 70 miles of range compared to the
performance model y which is a stark
however the maki still looks like a
great vehicle the five passenger cabin
is fitted with contemporary features and
high-tech infotainment options as well
as some unique cargo and storage
it has a 10.2 inch digital instrument
cluster along with a vertical 15.5 inch
center touchscreen
ford also promises over-the-air software
updates plus it's compatible with apple
carplay and android auto
and when paired with the tax credit the
price comes down to around 36 000
which goes a long way for a vehicle like
the machi
next up is an eevee that literally just
got announced this week
the hyundai ioniq 5 is a crossover suv
as of now it's estimated to start around
45 thousand dollars and is inspired by
hyundai's 45 concept it's based on
hyundai and kia's new
electric global modular platform which
uses an 800 volt
architecture that provides impressive
charging speeds the ionic 5 is estimated
to travel up to
300 miles on a full charge and it marks
the debut of hyundai's new all-electric
ionic sub-brand which they say will
bring 23 electric vehicles by 2025.
the ioniq 5 should come standard with
all-wheel drive and will be available
with two battery options
58 kilowatt hour and 73 kilowatt hour
the ionic 5 will also feature fast
charging capability which is said to
allow its battery to recharge
to 80 percent in as little as 18 minutes
and can regain about 60 miles of range
in just
5 minutes based on an overhead shot
released by hyundai the ionic 5's
interior will take advantage of its
all-electric packaging
which should provide a flat floor for
maximum space it also looks like the
giant display that spans nearly the
entire dashboard could be part of the
final version
for infotainment and connectivity
features it should have voice
recognition technology and be compatible
with apple carplay android auto and a
hotspot this is a very intriguing
vehicle for fans of a futuristic design
at a reasonable price
it looks sleek and very high-tech and
could cost under forty thousand dollars
for some customers
with the current federal ev tax credit
the next electric vehicle on this list
oh what are you doing back there your
skin's really soft reback there the
whole time
yeah it's off right because i've been
using a custom skincare routine from
today's sponsor curology
as a youtuber i have to make sure my
face is clear and blemish-free for the
camera and i've always struggled with
sensitive skin
even after my awkward teenage acne years
it's been hard to find the right
products that don't irritate my face
it's a weird mix of oily and dryness
which is tough to subdue
i've never really had a true daily skin
care routine until
curology it was simple to sign up i just
took a quick
online quiz sent in three selfies then a
dermatology provider at curology
looked at my information and prescribed
a custom formula just for me
i received my one month trial for just
the cost of shipping and handling and
started using my custom formula
every night before bed i've definitely
seen improvement in the way my face
and feels a curology has been gentle on
my skin
has made my dry and oily skin more
consistent and as you can tell my wife
can tell a big difference in how much
softer my face feels
so she's also a big fan now to get
started or learn more about curology

thanks again to curology for supporting
my channel
next is the eevee that we know the least
about right now but still made the list
because of the anticipation
the kia cv also called the ev5
is the last crossover suv on this list
which yes i do apologize this list has
been crossover heavy so far
but the kia cv looks amazing and is
estimated to start around 45
000 kia's president recently announced
some of the cv's highlights saying a
full charge
will allow a range of more than 500
kilometers or 311 miles
similar to the ionic 5 it will also have
the 800 volt architecture which enables
ultra fast charging
it claims to regain 60 miles of range in
about four minutes
some spy photos of the kia cv's interior
show two floating displays
one being the instrument cluster and the
other is the center infotainment display
now the screens are positioned on a
panel to give the impression of a single
seamless screen wrapping around the
cockpit as a single curved panel
however the most exciting part may be
the performance the kia cv gt model is
estimated to go zero to 60
in just three seconds which is quicker
than the performance model y
and the porsche tycon turbo which costs
a measly
150 thousand dollars now the kia cv will
also have a charging advantage over all
of our previously mentioned
similar size crossovers on this list
like the id4 and the arya
since they only support 400 volt
charging and the peak power of their dc
charger is 125 kilowatts and 130
kilowatts respectively
now with the kia cv's 800 volt charging
system it would be possible to charge at
350 kilowatts
charging the battery from zero to 80
percent could only take
18 minutes the kia cv will certainly be
a force
in the ev market in 2021 now you know i
couldn't leave out this next electric
vehicle even though it may not make it
until early 2022
the tesla cyber truck starts around 40
000 for the single motor rear wheel
drive variant but that's not going into
production until
late 2022 so that's why it's here at
this spot because the dual motor and
tri-motor versions will be produced
in late 2021 and starting around 50
thousand dollars
and 70 000 respectively the cyber truck
is of course a futuristic cyberpunk
inspired truck
that has a nearly impenetrable
exoskeleton made of ultra hard
30x cold rolled stainless steel i was
lucky enough to attend the unveiling
event in 2019 and got to ride in it
and from first hand experience this
thing is huge inside and out
it can sit up to six people and can tow
up to 14 000
pounds and has 100 cubic feet of storage
and all of these storage spaces combine
including the trunk bed which is
referred to as the vault
it can travel anywhere from 250 miles to
over 500 miles on a full charge
depending on the configuration
and the performance is insane with a 0
to 60 speed of
less than 3 seconds on the tri-motor
all-wheel drive version
just like with all tesla vehicles that
come standard with their advanced driver
assistance system autopilot
and it has access to the best in-class
nationwide tesla supercharger network
and can charge up to 1 000 miles an hour
on v3 superchargers
tesla describes it as a better utility
vehicle than a truck with more
performance than a sports car
and from the looks of it that seems to
be true what else can be said about the
cyber truck there's nothing else like it
for the price-to-specs ratio you can't
beat it
i can't wait to see it on the roads and
experience it for myself next up are
probably the most hyped electric
vehicles out of this entire list
we're talking about the rivian r1t and
rivien r1s
which start around 67 000.70 000
respectively before any tax credits or
rebates now it's funny these are some of
the most hyped vehicles yet they're from
the newest
company rivian was only founded in 2009
and since then they've gotten a lot of
attention for their upcoming pickup
the r1t and their suv the r1s
they're backed by amazon and ford and
they have a very specific target
audience in mind
and pretty spot-on branding with a focus
on high-end luxury yet adventurous
if you want an all-electric pickup truck
but hate the cyber truck then the r1t
may be for you
it promises at least 300 miles of range
on the large battery pack and over 400
miles on the max battery pack
with crazy performance using a quad
motor all-wheel drive setup
delivering a 0 to 60 speed of 3 seconds
and up to 11 000 pounds of towing
now the r1s suv only has the large
battery pack option of 300 plus miles
and can be configured as a 5 seater or 7
seater but it also comes in a quad motor
setup with the same 0 to 60 speed of 3
seconds as the r1t
i was lucky enough to see both of these
vehicles in person last year at fully
charged live north america
and they look just as good in person as
they do in photos
unfortunately nobody got to drive them
or sit inside them but the precision and
attention to detail
was obvious and the interior looks very
premium and welcoming
i think rivian will be hugely successful
as long as they can keep up with
the production demand and meet service
needs as their customer base grows
next is a new edition of the reigning
king of all evs
the tesla model s plat plus starts
around 140
000 and is expected to deliver in late
the model s is what made me fall in love
with tesla years ago but ever since the
model 3 came out i was never a fan of
the outdated model s interior
it was the same for way too long with
that vertical touchscreen layout
well now tesla has refreshed the
interior on the model s and model x
and it looks amazing it has three total
displays now
a 12.3 inch driver display behind the
all-new yoke steering wheel
a new 17-inch center touchscreen with a
resolution of 2200 by 1300
and a brand new 8-inch second-row
display for backseat passengers
don't worry though if you don't like the
new steering yoke based on a recent
photo of a test model s it looks like
you can choose a normal steering wheel
however both wheels seem to have the new
touch capacitive buttons
since there are no longer any stalks on
the steering wheel for controls it's all
done through the steering wheel
or touch screen or even by the car
guessing what you're going to do
according to elon
but the most exciting part may be the
specs and performance
model s plaid plus claims to have the
quickest 0-60 in quarter-mile
acceleration of any production car
ever made with the 0-60 coming in at
less than 1.99 seconds in the
at less than nine seconds which is
absolutely bonkers
it has over 1100 horsepower with three
high performance motors
and carbon sleeved rotors and the best
part is it can travel an estimated
520 plus miles on a full charge which is
the longest range
out of any ev on the market in 2021
needless to say the model s plus is the
new ev
king last but not least the most
expensive vehicle on this list
the lucid air comes in a few different
models but the one that will deliver
first in 2021 is the dream edition
which costs a whopping 169
thousand dollars before any tax credits
or rebates obviously this car is not in
most people's budget but they will have
more affordable versions starting around
seventy 70 000 coming later now the
lucid air just screams
luxury and innovation the estimated
range on a full charge goes up to 517
miles depending on the version
with over 1 000 horsepower on a dual
motor all-wheel drive architecture
now before the new model s plus was
announced the lucid air claimed to be
the longest range ev on the market
led by tesla's former vp of engineering
lucid created the air to be the world's
most powerful and efficient
luxury electric sedan it's also the
fastest charging electric vehicle
right now with a 900 volt architecture
in the capability to charge at rates of
up to
20 miles per minute on a dc fast charger
that translates to 300 miles of range
and about
20 minutes of charging the air offers a
luxury class interior while maintaining
an agile sport sedan footprint which
results in the largest frunk
of any ev to date the lucid air interior
is super futuristic and elegant with a
34 inch curved glass cockpit
5k display along with a retractable
central pilot panel
for a deeper control of the vehicle
systems and functions it also has a
promising competitor to tesla autopilot
called the lucid dreamdrive advanced
driver assistance system
with 32 sensors covering vision radar
and ultrasonics
and lidar this car will certainly be a
sight to see
truly a car of the future and i hope to
be able to experience it soon for you
in fact i'd love to be able to
experience any of the cars on this list
so if you are
in any way a part of these companies or
you live near louisville kentucky
and you want me to check it out let me
know please reach out to me these cars
definitely have me all tingly for the ev
market in 2021 i truly think this year
will be an inflection point in the grand
of the masses moving toward ev adoption
and away from internal combustion
engine which one of these cars excites
you the most let me know in the comments
if you enjoyed this video give it a
thumbs up and subscribe to see more tech
videos in the future
