The year 2022 will bring many changes for the automotive industry. While the new models of the 2021 year are mostly cosmetic, there are some significant updates coming for the upcoming model year. For example, BMW is bringing back the M3 in an RWD configuration, and the company is adding an all-electric version of the 3 Series sedan. The new M3 will also be BMW’s first fully-electric SUV. The interior of the current BMW sedan will see some changes, too.
A brand new hybrid will be released for the 2022 model year. The Toyota Prius is a great example. The new Prius will replace the venerable Camry. The Toyota Prius will continue to be sold in the U.S., as will the Nissan Leaf. Several new hybrid vehicles will be unveiled, too. The Tesla Model 3 is expected to be the first all-electric vehicle to reach production.
The new BMW 2 Series will be redesigned for 2022, with three trim levels – 230i, M240i xDrive and M250i xDrive. Unlike the outgoing model, the CS version is expected to be wider and longer. The second-generation BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will be based on an unrelated platform. The two-seater coupe will remain the same for the next decade. The new version will offer three new colors, and some minor changes in options.
The next generation of Mercedes-Benz compact sedan is already on the way to production. The sedan will be fully electric and will compete with the Tesla Model 3 and Volkswagen Aero B. The Ioniq 6 will be a zero-emission version of the Sonata, but it will still be a four-door fastback. It will have an all-electric interior, an all-wheel-drive system and a 260-mile range.
The upcoming 2022 model cars will have a new look, and some of the most anticipated models are already on sale. While the new models usually show up in the fall, some will come to the market in the spring. In fact, the last one to hit the showrooms was released in August 2015. This means that the 2022 model car will be the last one to hit the market, and we are still in the early days of its development.
The next-generation of the Honda Civic is set to be the smallest electric performance car yet. Similarly to the gasoline-powered 4 Series Gran Coupe, it is a four-door sedan. Its interior is modern and features a larger touchscreen and honeycomb mesh air vents. It will be the last version of the Civic coupe, but the company is still planning to produce the two-door version. It will also offer a new variant of the Civic Hatback, an all-electric hybrid that will come with a manual transmission, and a Type R.
In addition to the Ford Mustang, the Mazda MX-5 will have a new engine and a revised interior. The new version of the Miata will also be a hybrid. Its name is derived from a Greek word meaning “sunflower.” The Miata is a small car that runs on electricity. Its rivals in the U.S. and Europe have different plans. The new version of the Hyundai i30 has a similar design as the current MX-5.
While there are many new models in the future, we have already seen several in our generation. We will likely see a new Ford Focus in the United States and a Volkswagen Aero B in Europe. Both models will have all-wheel-drive and all-electric interiors. The Hyundai Ioniq 6 will compete with the Tesla Model 3 and the VW Aero B in the US. While a few new cars will debut in the US, the most anticipated ones will be those from China, Japan, and the U.K.
The Honda Civic is in its eleventh generation, and the new model will be a turbocharged mid-size vehicle. The interior will be modern and feature wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It will also have a larger touchscreen and honeycomb mesh air vents. The two-door coupe will no longer be offered, but there will be a redesigned model of the Civic Hatback, a manual-transmission Si, and a Type R version.
