New electric SUVs causing a buzz in 2023

Jeeps are arguably the father of all 4×4 vehicles on the road today, and its cars have continued a stoic tradition of being unstoppable off-road. Entering the world of electrified motoring is the Jeep Avenger, this bold new model combines distinctive American design with impressive electric tech.

Capable of covering 249 miles, or more when used around town, its 54kWh battery provides good range and can rapidly charge at up to 100kW, meaning that a 20-80% charge can take as little as 24 minutes.


BYD Atto 3

Not aware of BYD? This Chinese manufacturer joins the many new names in the EV arena and majors in impressive tech. Standing for Build Your Dreams, the BYD Atto 3 is an SUV that presents a premium look and headline-grabbing features such as a rotating 15.8-inch screen.

A 60.5kWh battery results in a pleasing 260-mile range and its 150kW rapid charging capabilities mean you won’t be stationary for long. Charged at its fastest rate, a 30-80% replenishment takes 29 minutes.

Following on from the Polestar 2, this all-electric SUV brings a sense of Swedish style to the segment. The clean design continues inside where a large 14.5-inch portrait touchscreen display dominates the dashboard. This spacious cabin seats five with a 484-litre boot, a combination that should make it ideal for families.

Beneath its sleek silhouette is a battery with 107kWh usable capacity provides a fantastic range of 379 miles. It’s quick to charge too – a 250kW rapid charge from 10-80% takes only 30 minutes. This might be the perfect solution for those who are commuting longer distances.
