Tesla cybertruck

Car companies undoubtedly see battery-powered vehicles as the future of worldwide driving. Many manufacturers are targeting electrified lineups within the next decade or sooner. Other companies pledge a completely carbon-neutral future within the next 30 years.

With that in mind, we compiled a list of all the electric car companies, and vehicles planned or offered by well-known automakers. Some of these companies are staples in the automotive world with best-selling cars, such as Ford and Tesla, while others have yet to release a single vehicle — and may never even do so.

Our alphabetical list will help you shop if you want to buy an electric car now or in the next few years, or if you want to plan or dream about the vehicle you might be driving decades from now. Or, it might just be driving you.

Whatever your situation, we list the companies and their current and possibly upcoming EVs.


Acura Precision EV Concept

Acura recently released new details of the company’s EV concept car, the Acura Precision, which will be the Acura ZDX once released. The SUV would be the carmaker’s first electric vehicle. While the concept is a good sign of what’s potentially coming, we must wait until Acura releases its 2024 model for the real thing. Remember, many aspects of this car won’t make it to production.

Future EVs:

Apple Car

Apple CarPlay in-vehicle phone integration has many fans, but what if Apple made a whole car? Well, it’s no secret that Apple began working on an EV hoping to shake up the electric car industry. The tech giant was linked to a partnership with Hyundai, but the deal got called off just a month after the story broke. Apple has been testing an autopilot chip similar to what Tesla uses. Last year, the car got delayed until 2026. In February 2024, Apple pulled the plug.
