Tesla Roadster (second generation)

Tesla fans have already waited a long time for the second-generation Roadster, and they will wait some more—until at least some point in 2025. Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to his X social media site on Feb. 27 to announce the roadster will go from zero to 60 mph in less than a second. And, in classic Musk fashion, he posted: “There will never be another car like this—if you could even call it a car.”

The Revuelto is Lamborghini’s first high-performance electrified vehicle (HPEV) hybrid. 

This supercar combines a 12-cylinder internal combustion engine with three electric motors to produce a maximum of more than 1,000 horsepower and a top speed of about 217 miles per hour. It features carbon-fiber monocoque construction and a pilot-like cockpit. 

“The Revuelto is equal parts past, present and future Lamborghini, and the combination is undeniably intoxicating,” said a review in Car and Driver magazine.

The manufacturer calls the Revuelto “the most customizable Lamborghini ever,” with numerous options available via the Lamborghini Ad Personam customization program. The price starts at $604,000.

be $150,000-plus.

After several delays, Tesla is finally delivering one of the most anticipated (and polarizing) EVs ever introduced. The stainless-steel-clad Cybertruck displayed at the recent Chicago Auto Show got plenty of attention. Price starts at $57,390 for the RWD version due out next year. The AWD version (which Tesla produces now) starts at $76,000.

Genesis GV70

Car and Driver magazine named both the gasoline and electric versions of GV70, from Hyundai’s Genesis brand to its 2024 Editors’ Choice ranking. The magazine says “this compact SUV does luxury better than the Audi Q5 and BMW X3 and also delivers well-balanced road manners—with a smoother ride than the Mercedes-Benz GLC-class and the Volvo XC60.” Price starts at $45,000 for the dinosaur-juice version and $66,450 for the EV.

Technically, it’s not a car. It’s classified as an enclosed “autocycle” and subject to motorcycle regulations.  Aptera says it gets 250 to 1,000 miles on a charge, depending on the battery buyers choose. And the Aptera can get enough continuous charging from the sun to more than replenish the power used during daily driving. Due out in late 2024, the 400-mile Launch Edition starts at $33,200

Maserati GranCabrio

Introduced on Leap Day, the updated GranCabrio—a convertible version of Maserati’s venerable GranTurismo—could be the perfect springtime gift to yourself.

At launch, the GranCabrio is available in the carmaker’s high-performance Trofeo trim, featuring a 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine cranking out 542 horsepower. This spyder streaks from zero to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 196 miles per hour, Maserati says.

An all-electric version is in the works for the convertible, while the GranTurismo already has one called the GranTurismo Folgore.

Maserati had not released the price before press time, but it will reportedly start at more than $200,000.

Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray

When Chevrolet announced its Corvette E-Ray, the word “hybrid” was nowhere to be found. 

This is an “electrified” Vette with all-wheel-drive capability provided by an electric propulsion system added to a small-block, 495-horsepower V-8. The electric motor and gasoline engine create a combined 655 horsepower. The electric assist also features a “stealth mode,” that enables drivers to operate on quiet electric power for three or four miles at up to 45 mph.

The E-Ray’s zero-to-60 time is 2.5 seconds, making it the quickest Corvette ever, Chevy says.

The price starts at $106,000 for the coupe and $113,000 for the convertible.

Lucid Air Pure

Lucid is obsessed with efficiency, including the way it distributes space. The Lucid Air Pure—the “affordable” version of Lucid’s Air models—has a surprisingly roomy cabin and 32.1-cubic-feet of cargo space when you combine its trunk and the “frunk” located in the front of the car. Car and Driver magazine named the Lucid Air Pure
to its 10 Best List for 2024. Price starts at $70,000.

Car and Driver magazine tested the xDrive40 version of the all-electric BMW i4 and called it “a sprightly performer at the test track, with a 60-mph time of 4.4 seconds and a quarter-mile zip of 12.9 seconds at 109 mph” and “a finely honed driver’s car.” The BMW i4 line starts at $53,000, and the xDrive40 iteration starts at $62,000.
