Despite the fact that most of them will never see a dirt track, let alone serious bush trails, We all know that Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV’s) are all the rage here in Australia. The next evolution in this progression is the all-electric SUV, with more options set to become available with the Australian market over the coming year.

The gull-winged technological masterpiece otherwise known as the Tesla Model X can often be spotted at school pickups along Sydney’s North Shore or the main street of Toorak, as all Electric SUV’s become the got to have gadget of this decade. Other options for those looking for a blend of Sporty good looks, electric savings, and progressive technology can opt for the Plug-in Hybrid Electric vehicle (PHEV) Line up of Mitsubishi Outlander, BMW X5e or Volvo XC90. Just this week Mercedes and BMW stepped up the fight with the announcement of the Mercedes ECQ and the Audi e-Tron, two all-electric SUVs which are sure to steal the hearts and minds of consumers all across Australia.

Looking further ahead BMW also announced plans for the iX3 and iNext which will be the next generation of BMW electric cars.
