Are you already looking forward to the new cars arriving on the Australian streets in 2024?
Wait no more, because we've got a first peek at what’s in store for the future through this comprehensive guide to the new cars that will soon dominate the Australian car scene starting next year!
Buckle up, mates, because this will be an exciting ride to what lies ahead!!
First on the list are the EVs from China's Aion. Aion is under the Guangzhou Automobile Co., known as GAC Group, and has established partnerships with Mitsubishi, Honda, and Toyota.
Reportedly coming to Australia in the Q2 2024 are the following:
Aion Y Plus EV is a 4.5m long high riding MPV with a 430km-610km range, plus motor outputs of 150kW and 225Nm.
This EV fastback offers butterfly doors, and can speed up from 0-100km/h in 4 seconds.
It also possesses a slippery 0.19Cd aerodynamic rating, 250kW power rating, and a 900v architecture.
This so-called ‘China’s first supercar’ accelerates at a speedy 0-100km/h within 1.9 seconds (!!). That's extremely fast!
But aside from speed, it also uses aviation tyre tech to reduce stress and heat when speeding up, and 900V silicon carbide chips that run 2.5 times faster while using less power.
BMW is also set to welcome the next year with a bang. And these cars are set to lead the charge in 2024!
While the all electric BMW iX1 isn't available in Australia yet, hints of its single-motor variant coming to the country soon are getting significant attention.
Meanwhile, many are also speculating it could be a spinoff from the current iX1 model offered globally. This features outputs of around 230kW and 494Nm, plus a driving range of up to 440kms.
Also to be released as soon as next year, the BMW X1 M35i xDrive is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-litre four cylinder engine producing 233kW of power, along with 400Nm of torque compacted to an all wheel drive.
The petrol-only Corvette Z06 is soon to arrive in Australia and it is fully packed!
It has two new wheel options and comes with a naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V8 engine generating 369kW of power and 637Nm of torque. Fuel economy is measured at 12.4L per 100km.
A new addition to the growing Corvette lineup, E-Ray is the first to be an electric vehicle, powered by an electric motor producing 120kW and 165Nm. Running through a 6.2 litre V8 engine rated at 369kW and 637Nm, its rear wheels are driven via an eight speed dual clutch transmission.
The new unit also boasts upgraded infotainment and tech, wider body configuration for a Corvette unit, and two drivetrain settings you can use depending on battery health.
Ford's most sought after Mustang is about to get a makeover, and it will be on Australian roads by next year.
What we initially know is that it will have a significant upgrade in the infotainment system and digital instrument cluster, as well as its tail lights.
Puma EV is also coming to Australia next year, joining the likes of E-Transit, Transit custom, and Mustang Mach-E as the lineup of Ford EVs launched Down Under.
While specs and details are scarce at the moment, numerous speculations about its resemblance and upgrades from the current Puma drive are all around, giving fans much more to anticipate as 2024 comes in fast.
Honda CR-V is already an Australian road legend, but it's not yet done impressing, as its sixth gen release will soon land in Australia.
The only hints we know so far are its more formal suit, L-shaped tail lights, and a dashboard influenced by the newest Civic and American HR-V. Its base engine is mainly a revamp of its 1.5 litre turbocharged four cylinder engine.
That's all, for now!
