2024 New Car Calendar for Australia

4 minutes, 0 seconds Read

There’s no shortage of new metal coming to Australia in 2024, from high-performance electric cars to city hatchback and diesel work utes. Here’s everything on the horizon.


As the Australian car market prepares to post an all-time record for new vehicle sales, there is a glut of fresh new cars, SUVs, utes and vans due in local showrooms in 2024 and beyond.

Last year (2023) was big for new-car launches, however 2024 is shaping up to be just as busy – as manufacturers look to not only introduce new models, but with stock shortages and production bottlenecks easing, have plenty of cars on the ground to sell.

Among the stars of the 2024 launch calendar is the new Toyota Prado, the first new model in close to 15 years, which is due in showrooms in the middle of the year – pending any delays.

The dual-cab ute category is set to welcome a new Mitsubishi Triton, a plug-in hybrid pick-up from Chinese car maker BYD, and the tray-backed version of last year’s Ineos Grenadier four-wheel-drive wagon.

New performance cars on the way include the new Ford Mustang, Mercedes-AMG C63 and electric Hyundai Ioniq 5 N, while for electric-car fans there is set to be the first battery-powered vehicles in Australia from Toyota, Subaru, Volkswagen and Jeep.

For buyers on a budget there is poised to be an all-new MG 3, new Suzuki Swift and updated Hyundai i30, while new family SUVs on the way include the Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage hybrids, Skoda Kodiaq and BYD Seal U plug-in hybrid.

After working the phones leading up to and since the summer break, this is Drive’s exclusive up-to-date guide to every model confirmed (or expected) to launch in Australia in 2024 and beyond, correct as of the date below.

Drive will update this story progressively throughout the year with new models and updated dates, as they come to hand – however production interruptions and shipping delays across the car industry mean the information below is subject to change.
