The year 2024 is full of surprises for the automotive industry in Mexico. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, the chip shortage, and the new environmental regulations, several brands have confirmed the arrival of new models to our market. In this article we will review the most important launches of cars in Mexico 2024, as well as the approximate dates of their arrival.

Audi Q5

In 2024 we will see the new generation of the Q5, one of Audi’s most successful SUVs. It has not yet been presented, but its global debut is expected in the course of 2024. As it is manufactured in Mexico, it is highly likely that we will be one of the first countries to receive it. It should happen before the end of the year.

BMW X2 / iX2

The X2 is renewed from end to end, and comes to Mexico for the first time with an electric version. It should arrive during the first months of the year, with a range that should go from 170 hp for the entry-level gasoline versions, to 313 hp for the electric variant.

BMW x3

Although BMW has not confirmed it, everything indicates that the new generation of the X3 will debut in 2024. Its international debut could take place during the summer, and since BMW does not usually delay in launching its new models in Mexico, we could see it on our streets before the end of the year.

BMW m5

The only missing link in the new 5 Series range is its highest-performance variant. The next M5 should be launched internationally in the middle of the year, so it would arrive in Mexico during the last quarter of 2024, with a proposal above the 625 hp that the current model already offers.

Buick Envision

Buick’s compact SUV is preparing an update for Mexico, with a face very similar to that of the brand’s latest launches, such as Envista and Encore. No changes are expected in mechanics, but an improvement in equipment is expected. Everything indicates that it will arrive during the first quarter of the year.

BYD Seagull

BYD doesn’t stop. After having launched six models in 2023, the Chinese firm is preparing one of its most interesting models for Mexico: a small 3.78-meter-long electric hatchback, the key to which will be the price, which is expected to be around 420,000 pesos. It could arrive with a 74 or 100 hp motor and a battery of between 30 and 38 kWh, for a range of around 400 km.

Cadillac Escalade iQ

The most advanced thing that exists today from General Motors is this colossal SUV, which brings the Escalade name to the electric world. It has a motor on each axle for a total of 750 hp, and thanks to a huge 200 kWh battery, it can travel up to 720 km per charge. It should reach our streets in the final stretch of 2024.

The Traverse has sought its place among Highlander and company for years, and its latest move is to adopt styling in the image and likeness of Suburban.
