Discontinued Cars for 2022
The electrification of the automotive industry is well underway, with new nameplates seemingly debuting every day. Take, for example, the following all-new electric vehicles for 2022: Audi Q4 E-tron, BMW iX and BMW i4, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, Lucid Air, Mercedes-Benz EQS, Nissan Ariya, Rivian R1T, and Volvo C40 Recharge. And that’s just for starters.
Just in the past year, though, some familiar faces have returned to the automotive family, including the Ford Bronco, Ford F-150 Lightning, and Land Rover Defender. But with every reunion comes news of those no longer with us.
The following is a list of vehicles (or specific variants denoted with an asterisk) whose demises automakers have formally announced. Some are gone forever, while others could be resurrected in the future, perhaps even in battery-electric form. After all, if the Ford Mustang can develop a split personality, who’s to say other longstanding nameplates can’t?
