Ford electric pickup: Ford says its Blue Oval City assembly plant in Tennessee will build “next-generation F-Series electric pickups” on Ford’s special battery platform. CEO Jim Farley went a step further, saying the new plant will build “another truck” that isn’t a redesigned Lightning. The vehicle will go on sale in 2025. Details are scarce, but it could be a distinctly styled, full-size pickup truck under the F-Series umbrella, marketed more towards retail buyers, while the traditional Michigan Lightning would be focused on commercial sales.
Ford Explorer EV: Having abandoned plans to build the Explorer and Lincoln Aviator electric vehicles alongside the Mustang Mach-E in Cuautitlan, Mexico, Ford now plans to begin manufacturing the vehicles in Oakville, Ontario, beginning in late 2024. Sales are expected to begin in early 2025. Rebuilt from construction of the petrol-powered Edge and Lincoln Nautilus.
Genesis Electric G70: The second generation of the G70 is scheduled to be launched in 2025 as a dedicated electric vehicle on the E-GMP platform. It’s unclear if Genesis will stick to the “Electrified” naming convention it uses on its G80 and GV70, as the model’s availability with only an all-electric powertrain already signals that it’s electrified.
Genesis large electric crossover: Genesis could unveil an electric three-row crossover in the second half of 2025, possibly dubbed the GV90. The model would be an upscale version of the Kia EV9 and Hyundai Ioniq 7, both mid-size seven-seat crossovers based on the E-GMP platform that will be launched in the coming years.
Infiniti EV Sedan: The Japanese-made Q50 sports sedan was to be reborn mid-decade as a battery-powered model based on the Q’s Inspiration sports sedan concept.

Kia EV5: An electric sedan is expected in mid-2025. It’s still unclear whether Kia’s midsize K5 sedan will be phased out after its current cycle.

Land Rover Defender: An all-electric model is expected.
Land Rover Discovery Sport: The next-gen Discovery Sport will move to the EMA architecture and potentially be available as an electric vehicle in 2025.
The second BEV from Lexus: Lexus is bringing a second electric vehicle to the US in 2025, but whether it will be a three-row crossover similar to the RX or a more efficient sport sedan similar to the IS is unknown. The Lexus Electrified Sedan concept shown in December might be the more logical bet, as the RX is the brand’s best-selling model and has been freshly revised with a hybridised powertrain and a three-row crossover could undercut the new TX, while the IS is long in the tooth. But never bet against Lexus’ ability to make money – which means it will likely be the crossover.
Lincoln aviator-sized electric vehicle: An EV based on the Aviator was moved alongside the Ford Explorer variant to make room for more Mustang Mach-E production in Cuautitlan, Mexico. Now it’s destined for Ford’s Oakville assembly plant, where production is expected to begin in late 2024 and sales begin in early 2025.

Clear Medium Platform: Lucid executives talked a bit about the company’s next platform, which will be designed for more mainstream luxury vehicles. A smaller sedan or hatchback could use half the battery, a single motor, and more mainstream materials to match a Tesla Model 3’s price point, which starts just under $50,000. The same platform could also support a crossover like the Tesla Model Y. But Lucid has his hands full with the Air and will probably not deliver a third model until 2025.

Whether the EV will get the green light for the US market is still unclear.
Mini electric car: The Chinese-made compact hatchback would be smaller than the current hardtop. Mini will develop it jointly with Great Wall Motor. It remains to be seen whether the model will reach US dealers.

Nissan electric sedan: The battery-powered model, coming in 2025, has a sedan-like profile with a sloping roofline and new headlight and taillight designs.

Rivian R2T/R2S/R2X/R2R: The first vehicles from Rivian’s Georgia plant will be smaller and more affordable, the company says. The automaker will likely use in-house motors and offer lithium-iron batteries to lower their costs compared to the expensive R1T and R1S. Rivian says the plant will launch its first vehicles in 2025. These could include a smaller pickup called the R2T and a smaller R2S SUV. The new platform could also be used to make a smaller Rivian R2X, targeting two-door versions of the Wrangler and Bronco once battery-electric variants of those rivals become available. If Rivian decides to make more car-like vehicles, one option is an off-road-oriented hatchback with the looks of a rally car. According to AutoForecast Solutions, the sporty vehicle could be called the R2R.
