Best of CES 2022

The absolute best electric vehicles of CES 2022

CES 2022 saw loads of mobility companies and automakers roll out their vision of an electrified future.

Mercedes-Benz EQXX

Mercedes-Benz delivered by far one of the most standout concepts of CES 2022 with its EQXX — a solar-assisted sporty electric car that, at least theoretically, could get an unprecedented 620 miles of range. Mercedes-Benz still has a ways to go before proving its EQXX has the longevity they claim it does (range estimates are based on simulations right now), but even outside of lofty claims of mileage, the EV has a lot to offer. Seats made of mushrooms anyone?

Sony Vision-S 02

Sony is serious about electric vehicles. This year, the tech titan showcased its second EV prototype — an SUV version of its Vision-S that is absolutely loaded to the gills with entertainment features. Naturally, Sony says you can even play full-scale video games (controller and all) using one of the prototype’s many in-vehicle displays. We might actually even see this thing on the road thanks to a new division at the company: Sony Mobility.

Chevy Silverado

The Ford F-150 Lightning will have a formidable competitor in Chevrolet’s electric Silverado, which will allegedly best Ford’s upcoming full-sized electric truck in some major categories, including range and power. Still, the release date is two years out, meaning Chevy still has a ways to go before it backs up its claims. Conversely, Ford’s truck is slated for release this May.

Cadillac InnerSpace

Cadillac’s InnerSpace concept is bound to be divisive. On one hand, it’s an intriguing, screen-filled take on the far horizons of self-driving tech. On the other hand, it’s a huge space bug. Hard to say what the over-under is on the InnerSpace actually becoming a reality, but needless to say, if this is what our automotive future holds, you better buckle up — no really, there are tons of distracting screens in this thing and it looks a little dangerous.

BMW iX Flow

CES is all about leaning into the future. Clearly, BMW got that message when readying its E Ink-equipped, color-shifting iX Flow for the convention. As the video demonstrates, the prototype, which is covered in a chameleon-like layer of E Ink, can shift between colors with the press of a button. Not a bad feature for when you don’t have time to suds the ol’ dust wagon.

Chrysler Airflow

The Airflow concept might not be the flashiest electric vehicle to be unveiled at CES, but it gets points for being down to earth. Chrysler is targeting between 350 to 400 miles of range. and surprisingly, though the electric crossover SUV looks like it could be on the road right now, it won’t be available until 2025. Chrysler better get a move on it given the commitment to EVs from competitors like Hyundai and Mercedes.
