A new year means new cars. Join 1st Central as we get excited about the motors set to hit the roads in 2024


Price: From £57,445 

The X2 makes its fully electric debut in the form of the IX2. Expect all the distinctive design features of the newly reimagined X2 and a range of around 270 miles thanks to a 64.8kWh battery. 

Dacia Duster

Price: From £17,000 

This is the third generation of the Dacia Duster and should be available from July 2024. One of the nation’s most affordable family SUVs, this iteration of the Duster has many new and improved safety features. 

Fiat 600e

Price: From £32,995 

A step above Fiat’s 500 series, the 600e is aimed at both city lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. It comfortably sits five and has a range of approximately 250-380 miles depending on the roads. A petrol version of the car is expected to launch shortly after. 

Ford Explorer

Price: From £40,000 

Ford confirmed this car back in March 2023, and it’s expected to launch in mid-2024. This model is expected to launch with two different powertrains, a rear-wheel drive offer with a range around 350 miles and an all-wheel drive offering a range of around 220 miles. 

MG Cyberster

Price: From £50,000  

A reimagining of the MGB Roadster, this new model is a two-door soft top convertible. Expected to go on sale in the summer of 2024, this car goes from 0-62mph in under three seconds with a range of approximately 300 miles. 

Porsche Panamera

Price: From £79,500 

This model was only recently revealed – in November 2023 – and is expected to hit the market in early 2024. The third generation of Porsche’s family model comes with either a V6 petrol engine or a V8 plug-in hybrid engine. 

Tesla Model 3

Price: From £39,990 

The latest version of the Model 3, available from January 2024, comes with a lot of upgrades. The technology is smarter, and the cabin is now much quieter than previous models. This car also has a range of approximately 420 miles, making it one of the longest-distance EVs on the market. 

Volvo EX30

Price: From £33,795 

Volvo has already scrapped selling diesel cars in the UK, and with their EVs priced similarly, or below diesel cars, they have no reason not to. The EX30 is the cheapest model in this range, even beating out the petrol equivalent. Accelerating from 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds, it’s expected to be one of Volvo’s best-selling cars of the year.
