New manufacturers on the block

2024 will be an exciting year for the world of electric cars. Even more models mean more choice, and improved technology. Strong competition between manufacturers is set to continue resulting in even better cars. However, the inter-brand battles are set to be fought even more fiercely this year with the introduction of several new names.

Fisker Automotive

You might vaguely know the Fisker name as founder Henrik Fisker has designed some truly impressive cars throughout his career. Working at both BMW and Aston Martin made him a household name, and now Fisker Automotive aims to bring his design genius to the world of mainstream EVs.


The Fisker Ocean is a stylish electric SUV that is now available in the UK. Buyers can choose from three models offering from 275 to 397 miles of range. If you’re feeling the need for speed, a high-performance Ultra model claims 0-60mph in just 3.9 seconds thanks to 543bhp and all-wheel drive.




LLucid airucid has seriously impressed the world’s automotive media with its first electric saloon called the Air. In fact, it won World Luxury Car of the Year in 2023. The American premium car maker intends to make itself known in the UK with its future models that have yet to be announced.

Expect news from Lucid with Tesla Model 3 and Model Y competitors to emerge soon.





Zeekr is a Chinese brand which is new to the UK much like Ora and BYD. While the name is new, its first electric SUV destined for our shores actually utilised a platform found in the Volvo EX30 and Smart #1.

Its spacious cabin is packed full of technology, including a 14.6-inch touchscreen display, while 150kW rapid charging will see it get from 20-80% battery capacity in just 30 minutes.


AlpineAlpine A290

Alpine might not be a new name thanks to its historic efforts in rallying and modern-day Porsche-rivalling sports cars, but 2024 will see it launch its very first all-electric car. The Alpine A290 will be a performance-oriented hatchback based on the Renault 5.

While details are scarce at this point in time, the car aims to appeal to enthusiasts with engaging handling, strong performance, and aerodynamics informed with the help of its Formula 1 team.
