Wagons are back! 7 new electric models you’ll love

Nordics have many passions, among them, there is also traveling across Europe with sleek station wagons featuring spacious cargo space, seats for the children, and an attached towing hitch. After a period where they were becoming less and less common, electric station wagons are ready to make a comeback in the market.

And since Northern Europe leads in electric vehicle registrations, we’re ready to believe that we’ll return to our old habits. Here are 7 electric station wagons to keep an eye on – not only luxury, we promise!

8 Electric Station Wagons in 2023-2024

What are the advantages of an electric station wagon? The batteries can be placed in the ample space available under the long vehicle floor. Additionally, the lower height of station wagons (compared to SUVs) makes them more aerodynamic, reducing consumption.

The offerings are quickly expanding, here’s an overview of what the market currently offers or will offer soon.

Audi A6 Avant e-tron

The Avant e-tron was previously showcased as a concept in March 2022.

It represents the station wagon version of the future A6 e-tron and is part of Audi’s electrification strategy.

BMW i5 Touring

In 2024, the Touring version of the BMW i5 will be introduced.

The German station wagon will have larger dimensions compared to the sedan, while the front end will be quite similar.

MG5 Electric

Since 2022, the MG5 Electric, the world’s first 100% electric station wagon, is available in Sweden and Norway – but not in Denmark, officialy.

The British-Chinese manufacturer launched it with a starting price of 349.990 NOK (Norway)/354.290 SEK (Sweden) for the Standard Range battery in Comfort trim and offers it with comprehensive equipment and a choice of two trim levels and four body colors. This is the cheapest electric station wagon you can buy, at the moment.

Nio ET5 Touring

NIO has officially launched the new ET5 Touring, the station wagon version of its electric ET5 designed specifically for the European market.

It is also available in a Touring variant as the ET5T, and was one of the main cars at eCar Expo 2023.

Peugeot e-308

The eagerly awaited electric version of the Peugeot 308 is set to debut soon, featuring a 156 hp electric motor and a range of 400 km.

It is available in both sedan and station wagon body types.

Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo

Of course, we’re not talking about the classic station wagon here, but a luxury shooting-brake that combines a sporty design with family-friendly features like ample rear cargo space and a vertical rear hatch.

The Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo was one of the early electric models.

Volkswagen ID.7

The electric successor to the Passat is also available in a station wagon version.

For those in need of more space, the Volkswagen ID.7 Variant is expected to arrive in early 2024 with the same technical specifications as the sedan.
