  • Plenty of third-row EV SUVs are coming out soon to offer more variety within the segment.
  • Prices range from around $40,000 to over $180,000, meaning that there will be a broad spectrum of everyday brands and luxury brands offering three rows of seats.
  • Only two cars on this list will most likely qualify for federal tax credits for being assembled in North America.

Americans love our big cars that can fit the whole family, and EV carmakers are answering that call. These EV SUVs are coming soon to a driveway near you — maybe even yours.

2023 VinFast VF9 | vinfastauto.us

2023 VinFast VF9
VinFast has been moving…well, fast here in the U.S. The upcoming VF9 is looking to be luxurious, spacious, and affordable. The sleek exterior was designed by Pininfarina, and the inside comes with a wide array of technology, plus the leather seats that can seat up to seven while still giving you ample cargo space.

The battery range is estimated at 369 miles, and the dual motor system puts out 402 horsepower. But for all that, the starting price is only $55,500. This might be a good one to keep in mind for those who want options when it comes to third-row EV SUVs but aren’t rolling in money. Plus, this is one of the few cars on this list that could qualify for the new Inflation Reduction Act tax credits, since it’s assembled here in North America.

2024 Hyundai IONIQ 7
Another third-row EV SUV that has over 300 miles of range, the 2024 Hyundai IONIQ 7 can easily fit seven people (or you can fold those rear seats down for more cargo space). The interior should be spacious and lush, with features like heated front seats, three-zone climate control, and a panoramic sunroof with adjustable tinting.

Yes, the concept version had a joystick instead of a steering wheel, but don’t fret — you’ll still have the standard controls you’re used to in a regular car. This one is expected to start at $50,000. Learn more about the 2024 Hyundai IONIQ 7

Kia hasn’t released the full specs yet, but we can expect a range of 250-300 miles, also for a starting price of $50,000. Learn more about the Kia EV9

2024 Lucid Gravity
Okay, now are you actually rolling around in money? Then maybe you should use it to reserve the upcoming Lucid Gravity. This will be the flagship SUV for the Lucid brand, and though we don’t have specs for this either, we can probably expect a range of 350 or more miles, tons of luxe touches, and flexible seating configurations depending on your needs.

Do we know how much it will cost? No. But can we safely estimate it’ll cost a pretty penny? You bet. Learn more about the 2024 Lucid Gravity

Canoo Lifestyle Vehicle
Yes, it may look a bit … different. But the Canoo Lifestyle Vehicle does have some neat features, like the panoramic glass roof and wicked amounts of legroom. The brand promises a range of up to 200 miles and 250 horsepower.

Plus, when else would you be able to say that you’re driving a car that NASA wants for moon-landing missions? And that’s all for a starting price around $40,000. Learn more about the Canoo Lifestyle Vehicle


2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV | www.mbusa.com

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV
Combining grandeur with eco-friendliness, the EQS SUV might be the most luxurious of these third-row EV SUVs. You get the choice of three trim levels, ranging between 285 and 305 miles. But really, you’re getting this one for the fancy touches.

You can get the massive 56-inch Hyperscreen, top-quality materials, and all the latest tech. And while it’s closely related to the EQS sedan, the SUV offers more space and comfort for up to seven passengers. Prices start at $104,400 and go up to $129,950, but you’ll definitely be getting your money’s worth. Learn more about the 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV

2023 Rivian R1S
While the company may be more well-known for its R1T pickup truck, the R1S is now expanding its reach with deliveries underway now. This sleek SUV offers a range of 316 miles.

It boasts the same quad motor powertrain as the R1T, packing a punch with 835 horsepower. Additionally, this SUV can conquer any terrain with 15 inches of maximum ground clearance and a towing capacity of up to 7,700 pounds. It starts at $78,000, putting it in the mid-range for this particular list. But so far, this seems to be the only other car on this list that could qualify for tax credits.

2024 Volkswagen ID.Buzz | www.vw.com

2024 Volkswagen ID.Buzz
Of all the upcoming third-row EV SUVs, this one just looks like too much fun. Live out your dreams of driving around in a classic VW microbus but with a snazzy upgrade. You get a range of around 260 miles and will most likely see this in an AWD configuration here in the States, a similar configuration to the current ID.4.

We don’t know what battery pack it’ll have yet, but Volkswagen has said it will be larger than the 77 kWh pack in the European model. Various sources peg the starting price in the $40,000-$45,000 range. Learn more about the 2024 Volkswagen ID.Buzz

2024 Volvo EX90
This will be Volvo’s first electric vehicle designed from the ground up. It promises both power and safety, with the entry-level trim offering 402 horsepower and Volvo’s promise that this will be their safest car yet.

You get a 300-mile range and a 10%-80% charging time of 30 minutes on a fast charger. But you will have to pay for that Volvo name: The starting price is going to be around $80,000. Learn more about the 2024 Volvo EX90


Porsche K1
Let’s wrap up this list with a bang, shall we? Currently codenamed the “K1,” this super-sized electric SUV should debut in 2027 — sorry, you’ll have to wait a bit. But this crossover is going to be an off-roader that will have adjustable ground clearance settings.

When it arrives, the K1 will be a flagship vehicle for Porsche’s growing electrified lineup. It’ll offer the latest in synchronous electric motor, high-performance battery, and rapid-charging technology. And it’ll probably cost more than $185,000. But boy oh boy, will it be thrilling. Learn more about the Porsche K1
