Electrifying the Future: The EV Supercars Worth the Wait

The landscape of supercars, hypercars and high performance vehicles has changed almost beyond recognition in a few short years. 


The luxury vehicle industry initially seemed somewhat hesitant to embrace the seismic changes the electrical revolution presented. However, progress and innovation is undeniably deep in the DNA of the supercar scene. What’s more, increased demand from HNW customers and the world at large ignited the imagination of the world’s greatest car brand design teams, leading to a flurry of truly exciting and game-changing releases scheduled for the end of this year, 2024 and beyond. 

Any fears of EV performance stats falling short of customer expectations have long since been cast by the wayside, with several of the most impressive high-profile launches of 2023 proving that the future is well and truly electric. Blistering speeds, ecological credentials and astonishing design flourishes are driving the EV industry forward at a truly remarkable rate – even certain supercar brands who were initially quite vocal about their faithfulness to the internal combustion engine seem to have changed their tune. 


It’s exciting to imagine that, perhaps more so than ever before, the rise of the electric supercar has initiated a creative and competitive energy in the industry that has long since been lacking. With battery range, speed capabilities, acceleration and a broad array of gleeful gadgetry back in the figurative driver’s seat of car design, the next few years are guaranteed to shift an ever-changing idiom even further into the realms of futurism. 


Radical change for radical times


Of course, we’re not quite yet living in a fully-electrified world, and there’s still a lot to be said for the guttural roar of a gas-driven roadster. Electric vehicles are still somewhat niche, making up a relatively small (but growing) minority of the market. Times are most certainly a-changing, however – EVs managed to snag 14% of worldwide vehicle shares between 2022 and 2023, and virtually every single automaker worth its salt has an EV in its current lineup. Some major names are even going all-in within a few years, adopting a progressive all-electric business model and abandoning traditional engines in their entirety. 


To say there’s considerable demand for next-gen EV cars would be quite the understatement. Historic brands at the very heart of American automotive industries, namely Chevrolet and Ford, are making massive strides in the EV industry. Tesla, Rivian and Lucid – all plucky newcomers with world-changing visions – continue to offer launch after launch to satisfy the hunger of buyers across the globe. If there’s ever been a sea change in the automotive scene, 2023 to 2026 is the period to leave space in the history books for.

As we enter showcase season, the team at Aurae Lifestyle has peeked behind the curtain of several of the most hotly-anticipated concepts and launches in the EV supercar scene. It’s no exaggeration to say that many of the vehicles set for audacious unveiling in 2024, 2025 and beyond are set for truly iconic status… and while it’s never quite possible to predict which cars will go down in the annals of history as bonafide groundbreaking models, it’s highly likely that more than one of the vehicles on this list has what it takes to lay the groundwork for a whole new realm of possibility. 


Join us in a celebration of future-forward supercar design and take a closer look at ten of the soon-to-be-released vehicles taking electric engines to new heights of excellence. 


DeLorean Alpha5


For those of us of a certain age, DeLorean will always and forever be associated with one of the greatest movie franchises of all time. Needless to say, the demand for the iconic 80s car brand to return to the forefront has reached fever pitch, since the kids who watched Back to the Future in awestruck silence have reached the peak of their spending powers. The Alpha5, set for release in 2024, is that triumphant return… and true to style, it’s as future-forward as can be, boasting a 300 mile electric charge range and a stunning body shape that still sits beautifully in the realm of sci-fi.

The Alpha5 is, at its core, a spectacular all-electric sports car. It debuted in concept form at 2022’s Pebble Beach event, and the response was overwhelmingly positive enough to convince the powers that be to sign off on full production a year later. The Alpha5 will go from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds, and you’re sure to look and feel fantastic as it does so. 


Dodge Charger Daytona SRT EV


It would be no understatement to say that eyebrows were raised with the announcement of the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT EV this year. If there are any car brands so deeply associated with the thrum and roar of an ICE, Dodge surely takes the crown.

However, the age of the all-electric muscle car is undoubtedly upon us, and the SRT has allayed all fears with claims that it was to pack up to 600 HP, an 800-volt architecture beneath its sleek hood and a supposed 500 miles of range. Due for public release in 2024, it’s likely to be not only an instant classic, but a harbinger of a whole new approach to performative electric vehicles. 


Genesis X Convertible


Bold and audacious newcomer Genesis made some serious waves at the 2022 Los Angeles Auto Show, when all eyes were upon the Genesis X concept vehicle – arguably one of the most instantly-alluring showpieces present, and a car which more than hints at the future of automotive production. 

The rapturous reception of the Genesis X led the company to look into ways to expand upon the enthusiasm, and the result of what must have been a rapid boardroom meeting is the Genesis X Convertible. Due for release in 2024, this open-top iteration of an instantly-appealing EV has a tentative price tag of $300,000 – and there’s little doubt that the limited run will be nothing short of a spectacular success. 


Lexus LFA EV


Late 2024 will also see the launch of Lexus’ most sincere foray into the realm of the electric supercar, a brand development which – unlike several others on this list – feels like a totally natural move for a brand that’s built upon always being ahead of the curve. The LFA EV will be a resurrection of Lexus’ much-loved LFA concept, albeit one powered by an all-electric engine and the full gamut of high-spec wizardry we’ve come to expect.

For those who’ve had their eye on Lexus’ major plans and developments over the past few years, the LFA EV won’t throw forward too many surprises. It was, after all, previewed by the beautiful Electrified Sport concept vehicle in 2021, and will feature the same rear-drive proportions, a two-second 0-60 roar of acceleration, and what has so far been cryptically referred to as a ‘virtual gearbox’. Consider our curiosity more than piqued. 


Ferrari Electric Supercar (details TBA)


More than enough people – including those at the very highest echelons of the Ferrari brand – said it would never happen. However, in perhaps the clearest indicator of a seismic shift in the world of supercars and high performance vehicles, Ferrari has indeed announced they will be adding an EV to their range by the end of 2025 “at the latest”. 

It’s no longer merely languishing in the rumor mill, either. CEO Benedetto Vigna himself revealed that a Ferrari EV is underway, claiming it to be an “emotional vehicle” offering a truly “unique driving experience”. Ladies and gentlemen, a new age is most certainly upon us.


Maserati MC20 Folgore


Every great movement, every potent revolution and every great leap forward needs its flag bearer. While there have been considerable progressive jumps in the world of electric supercars over the past decade, the Maserati MC20 may just be the one to set the standard moving forwards. Why? Because it successfully pairs a kind of traditional mid-engined stylisation with awe-inspiring handling and usability, as well as the kind of blistering acceleration that may convert petroleum purists once and for all.

The Maserati team is painfully aware of their audience’s high standards, and the top brass at the brand seems to have meticulously ironed out any creases to ensure their run of six Maserati EVs is a surefire hit. The idea is a simple one: to offer EVs that not only meet all the expectations of the public, but which actually outperform their ICE models while not losing an iota of character along the way. Can they achieve this with the MC20 Folgore? Time will tell.  


Aston Martin Valhalla


It’s no real surprise to see Aston Martin entering the EV supercar fold, not least because the past few years has seen the peerless British automotive brand firming up a healthy list of collaborative partners to future-proof their lofty ongoing ambitions.

First there was the joining of forces between Aston Martin and Mercedes-Benz, who are lending not only expertise in EV production but also their modern signature electric chassis to the Brits. Next, there was the bringing on board of Britishvolt, a UK-based battery innovation firm promising to revolutionize battery tech for a new generation of high performance vehicles. Such shared expertise has led to the announcement of the Valhalla, positioned to be nothing less than a new chapter in the already-impressive tome of Aston Martin history. 


At present, the Valhalla is a plug-in hybrid supercar – albeit one of magnificent visual and performative qualities. However, after its delivery in 2024, Aston Martin is going all-in with fully electric supercars, promising that EVs will form the core of its models by 2030. 


Lamborghini Electric Supercars (TBA)


Lamborghini is another Italian supercar brand that wasn’t overly eager to play their hand too soon when it came to EV aspirations. However, 2023 saw the automaker finally unveil their plans for electrification, which will proceed across two separate phases before culminating in a full range of all-electric supercars by 2035.

The end of 2024 will see Lamborghini roll out gas-electric hybrid iterations of their full current lineup – a massive shift in commitments, and one which clearly signposts the future of the brand. That means we’ll be seeing plug-in versions of the Huracán, Aventador and Urus models, and an as-yet unnamed fully electric fourth release is planned for some time in the next five years. 


Aehra Luxury EV Saloon


The US-Italian EV start-up, Aehra, has succeeded in grabbing the attention of the automotive world in truly impressive fashion this decade. The recently revealed SUV model was a barnstorming hit, proving that EV models – even in muscular SUV form – have come on leaps and bounds in the 2020s, and the EV revolution truly shows no signs of slowing.

This year, Aehra HQ announced a fully-electric saloon vehicle will be their next big release for 2024. While the precise details have been kept closely under wraps, we do know it will be stylistically similar to the SUV (that means a sleek roofline, signature front and rear design-led lighting and coquettishly short overhangs) and will be priced somewhere around the $180,000 mark. 


Impressively, the saloon has been designed by Lamborghini style maven Filippo Perini. His opinion? It will supposedly look more like a supercar than any saloon that’s come before, and is the “best vehicle” he’s ever designed. One to watch, for sure. 


Lotus Evija


The British car industry – long since associated with the utmost in old-school luxury automotive brands – is well and truly embracing the opportunities electrification presents. Few examples wave the flag for this new dawn quite as successfully as the newly-launched Lotus Evija, a limited-run EV hypercar that blazes trails for Lotus to follow.

With just 130 units set for release (although a brand-new iteration is on the cards), the Evjira boasts a quad-electric motor that throws out 1,972 hp. That’s enough to allow the hypercar to whipcrack from 0-60 in under 2 seconds, prompting obvious comparisons to industry leaders such as the Pininfarina Battista and Rimac Nevera.
