2020 signals rather a compelling need to bring connectivity, autonomy, shared mobility, and electrification (together forming C.A.S.E.) into play. While the car sales were down by 39% in the first half in the U.S., the world’s second-largest market for automobile sales and production, the V.D.A. predicted the stats to recover in the second half of 2020 slightly.
The Chinese government announced an extension on state subsidies for new energy vehicles (N.E.V.) such as E.V. The European parliament is marching ahead for strict emission standards. All this connotes the advent of a sustainable future and green cars.
The coolest new cars for 2021 would not just seem cool to us, for they would work in concert with the environment too.
Centering our list to one of the largest markets for the vehicle, here we put forth “The top 10 coolest new cars for 2021 in the U.S.A.”.
And no rewards for guessing that most of the cars in our list of “the top cars for 2021” will be electric or hybrid technology-based.
Audi E-Tron GT
This bold-sedan has been the talk of the town ever since its debut at the Auto Show. The wild-creation is Audi’s third production of electric cars.
With two electronic motors producing a combined 590 hp, the transmission system features the typical Quattro system backed, all-wheel drive (AWD). As per the claims, e-Tron will reach up to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. The elegant E.V. will take you to a range of around 249 miles in a single full charge, owing to its 800-volt fast-charging system that would recharge 80% of the battery in 20 minutes (backed by the wireless charging technology). No official statement has been released, but the cost estimation ends up to around $100,000. For a sportier experience in an eco-friendly way, the price is worth spending.
2021 Alfa Romeo G.T.V.
“Come back of a legendary coupe,” “return of a legendary nameplate,” – are what most auto blogs and channels are labeling it as.
Come on; such grand tags could not come out just for a powerful engine or any other bizarre feature. There has to be something specific. The car is based on the technology used to develop the original G.T.V. And comes with much-improved aerodynamics. This new GTV-modified model excels way more due to its well-adjusted power to weight ratio. The twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 engine will produce 505 hp.
In all, the attractive design and high value-added to this coupe make it worth giving a thought to buy at an estimated price of $50,000.
2021 Audi RS Q8
Audi RS Q8 leads the era of luxury S.U.V.s with its premium design, mammoth space, enormous power, and terrain independent ride comfort. With a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 Gas engine, producing 591 HP and 590 lb-ft of torque and powered by an 8-speed automatic transmission, it provides a top speed 155mph and throttles the vehicle across the safety laws within seconds. From the modern, attractive and ergonomic cabin, of 197.3 inches length and 117.9 inches width, the panoramic sunroof and H.D. Matrix design L.E.D. headlights, from mild hybrid system improving drive comfort to suspension providing precision regardless of surface, it’s a rider’s choice sport-utility.
2021 BMW i4
To evince the rivals such as the Audi e-Tron G.T. and the Tesla Model 3 that it’s nowhere behind in the race, BMW will reinforce a new jewel to its E.V. collection – 2021 BMW i4. The exact figures are still forthcoming, but the E.V. will run by a 530 hp electric motor with some estimates. BMW claims to provide a driving range of around 372 miles, thanks to an 80.0-kilowatt hour battery pack.
The company says the car will flaunt from 0 to 62 mph in just 4 seconds. The time, however, may differ, for the i4 offer both all-wheel and rear drive. We can also expect the latest and opulent interior design and comfort, all that at an estimated cost of $50,000.
McLaren GT, McLaren’s first G.T. generation for 2020, is a Grand Tourer with the continent crossing capability and refined, elegant, sleek design. This stunning two-door luxury coupe is crowned with the super-powerful Twin-Turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine and 7-speed transmission, which endows it with 612 HP and 465 lb-ft torque. It’s a rear-wheel drive, with a top speed of 203 MPH and a rule-breaker acceleration of 0-60 MPH in 3.1 sec. For sports car lovers, this Grand Tourer can prove to be the fastest car of this class, with a base price of $210,000.
This highly anticipated all-electric supercar by Tesla, Inc is expected to be released by late 2020. Tesla Roadster is installed with three electric motors, which enable it to follow all-wheel drive and torque variation while cornering. A 200 kWh battery backs the successor of its own earlier version 2008 Roadster. It can get to the speed of 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds, making it the fastest street-legal production car in the world. It is capable of providing a wheel torque of 10,000 Nm, as claimed by the company. To the rider’s bliss, its glass roof can be converted for an open-air driving experience. Since it starts with a base price of $ 200,000, it is quite an expensive beauty.
Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing
Since its announcement, there is a different level of hype for the CT5-V Blackwing model among fans. The Blackwing is anticipated to be set up to compete with the sharp rivals, considering the supercharged V8 engine and the top-class ergonomics involved in its designing. The company claims to have improved the suspension and handling of the Sedan, making it safer with barbaric acceleration. The 6.5-liter V8 engine is expected to crank out 650 hp, which will side with either a 10-speed automatic or six-speed manual setup. An estimate of its cost would end up being around $85,000.
2021 Porsche Cayenne G.T.S.
What better can we get under the G.T.S. model than the 2021 Porsche cayenne – an S.U.V. build with a sports-car-like feel!
The Cayenne G.T.S. is stealing the limelight for its twin Turbo 4-liter V8 engine capable of producing 460 hp. The new G.T.S. embraces the best-sounding exhaust and overwhelming acceleration with a well-laid 8-speed automatic transmission and the all-wheel-drive (AWD). A lowered suspension insulates you from a rough ride experience. The cost to get all other standard features of the Porsche brand for this car is around $108,650.
Volkswagen (V.W.) ID.4
Looking at its concept cars for a long time, V.W. is finally going to walk the talk with its new I.D. Cross Series. The ID. is a vital breakthrough towards V.W.’s unprecedented goal, robustly aiming at the electric vehicle industry. The company told that the rear motor would act as the primary source and crank out 201 hp. Besides, another 101 hp can be added through the optional front motor. And what puts ID.4 way ahead of the pack is its battery pack that helps to drive the S.U.V. up to 310 miles. The interior design and other aspects are yet to be disclosed. Still, the enthusiasts are expecting something less tacky than the I.D. The estimated cost is $45,000.
Ford Mustang Mach E GT
Ford entered the arena of all-electric vehicles through its model-Mustang Mach E. Its revised version Mustang Mach E G.T. is expected to arrive by spring 2021. Framed with a steel and aluminum unibody, it is an all-wheel-drive model. This five-seater S.U.V. is fast as well. It can get to the speed of 60 mph in just 3.80 seconds.
