8 Car Brands That Launched Their Very First Road-Ready Electric Cars In 2019
While fully electric concept cars have been debuting for years, leading the charge for their respective brands' futures, 2019 marks the year in which a slew of automobile manufacturers unveiled their very first production versions.
Here are eight companies that committed to switch to fully electric power this year.
Unlike the rest of these models, Porsche's first electric vehicle is a sportscar. The 2020 Taycan is already available for pre-order and is set to launch in Singapore next August.
Lexus's UX 300e made its world debut on November 22. The all-electric crossover is expected to go on sale in China in 2020 and in the UK in 2021.
