Electric vehicles topped the New York International Auto Show this year, with EVs as part of the show’s 250,000-square-foot EV display with an indoor track – at least in the auto show circuit.
Almost every automaker participating in the New York International Auto Show had an EV or plug-in hybrid on display. We’ve seen many before, including the Mercedes-Benz EQXX, Ford F-150 Lightning, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Chevrolet Bolt EV and Chevrolet Bolt EUV, Chevrolet Silverado EV Pickup, Hyundai Ioniq 5. At the World Car Awards, the Kia EV6 and VW ID Buzz and ID 4 crossover. Heck, even the Nissan Leaf came back refreshed.
Of all the battery-electric and plug-in hybrid models and all of the ideas expressed, a few stand out. Here are the ones that caught our attention.

Alfa Romeo’s first shortcut is the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonnel, which officially debuted in February. The Tonal is a plug-in hybrid that can travel up to 30 miles on a fully charged battery before switching to its case engine. The gas-engine variant of the SUV comes with a 256-horsepower, turbo-four engine.

The Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept will set the direction for bringing new electric vehicles to market with a $ 35 billion investment from parent company Stellandis. The all-electric crossover features 22-inch wheels, sleek shade and a 400-mile range. It comes with Stellandis’ STLA autodrive system with Level 3 automatic driving capabilities.

The Jeep brand showed off its 4xe vehicles, including the newer Grand Cherokee High Altitude 4xe. The latest 4xe plug-in hybrid model, introduced with Hydro Blue exterior paint, will be available for order in the second half of the year.
The Grand Cherokee 4xe offers a full power range of 25 miles and a gallon equivalent of 56 miles. According to the company. The 4xe propulsion system combines two electric motors, a 400 volt battery pack, a 2.0-liter turbocharged, four-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Austrian automaker has unveiled its Wayne EV Hypercar, a curved roadster with slim headlights and large air intakes. The 2,200-horsepower Wayne accelerates from 0 to 60 mph to 250 mph in 1.99 seconds, Deuce says. Those figures put Wine’s performance above the $ 1 million hypercar segment. Its price has not been released.

The California-based startup shows the Indi One, an all-electric, five-passenger crossover 300 miles away. Established as a competitor to the Tesla Model Y, the “Lifestyle-centric” shortcut boasts a built-in gaming system with its Vehicle Integrated System (VIC). The infotainment unit is supported by open source software that enables customizations ranging from the sound of its horn to a specialized virtual assistant. Starting at $ 45,000, the Indi One will begin deliveries in the spring of 2023.

Kia is using the New York showroom as a launch pad for its next-generation Nero subcompact SUV. 2023 Nero Hybrid will be offered with PHEV or EV Powertrain. The new model features futuristic design elements such as boomerang-shaped taillights and a more aggressive grille. It also has the best range – 239 to 253 miles from the last generation.
The automaker also showed off its EV9 concept, which first debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2021. We are concerned about this boxy SUV that uses the same E-GMP electric car operating system as the smaller EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5 because it actually goes into production.
Kia has confirmed that the EV9 will hit the US market in the second half of 2023 at the New York Auto Show.

Kia’s high-end sister brand has come up with a hint of what’s coming as Genesis raises its EV offers to transform its all-electric Genesis X Speedium concept into all-electric by 2030.
The coupe reveals Genesis’ bold design: a large-sized, triangular grille worn by low-speed fastback body style, roundabout headlights and automaker’s gas engine cars. The design is derived from last year’s X Concept Genesis and is named after South Korea’s Inje Speedium Race Track.

Winfast, Vietnam’s first domestic car maker, has brought all its electric VF8 and VF9 SUVs to the New York show.
The automaker also announced at the event that it plans to lease the battery separately from utility vehicles, which will be charged monthly based on battery usage. Without the battery, the five-passenger VF8 and seven-passenger VF9 SUVs start at $ 40,700 and $ 55,500, respectively.
