Electric cars are the future and they are more and more popular as we speak. If you buy a car which runs on electricity only, you can get a refund of $7.500 from the government! Of course, there are so many models on the market, so it is a difficult choice to buy the best car. Anyway, we have found the top 10 electric cars in the market.
1. 2017 Tesla Model S, Range: 335 miles
Tesla Model S isn’t only the best-looking electric car of today, it is also the fastest accelerating and has the best range. The range is 335 miles, but it will depend on how you drive the car. 0-60mph time is 2.5 seconds, which made it faster than most petrol powered cars of today. Autopilot, plenty of space and 17-inch display are standard advantages of this car.
2. 2017 Tesla Model X, Range: 295 miles
It is one of the first SUV cars which use electricity only. The range is amazing and there is space for 7 passengers. 2.9 seconds for reaching 60mph is impressive as well, so is the short charging time. When you want a new feature, be free to update the car and enjoy them. It is one of the most desirable, electric cars of today.
3. 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, Range: 238 miles
It is obvious why this car is so amazing. It is small and it is affordable, but the range is just perfect. Bolt has been one of the most popular, cheap all-electric car since the day it was launched. The 2017-year version is appreciated for a great interior, Android Auto and Apple car Play supports, space inside a cabin and a comfortable ride.
4. 2017 Tesla Model 3, Range: 215 miles
Model 3 is going to be one of the first electric cars mass produced. It is affordable as well, but it still offers almost all the advantages of the more expensive model Tesla makes. This refers to supercharger networks, autopilot mode, and updates over-the-air. Rivals are BMW i3 and Chevrolet Volt.
5. 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf, Range: 125 miles
e-Golf is identical to the standard car, except the electric motor which replaced the engine, of course. Other than that, you don’t get amazing differences. This model is currently coming to the market (it is already available in some parts) and it should be a desirable city car. It should be mentioned that Volkswagen didn’t compromise the space nor practicality of a car by replacing the engine with electric motor and adding a battery.
6. 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric, Range: 124 miles
If you are looking for an electric car which has a similar radius as e-Golf, but you need more space, this one is for you. It is known as the first-ever car to be available as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric car. Obviously, we are discussing the electric version. 7-inch, infotainment system is phenomenal in this vehicle.
7. 2017 Ford Focus Electric, Range: 115 miles
Thanks to a new battery of 33.5 kWh, Ford Focus became one of the best electric cars on the market. Keep in mind that the only model for 2017 has this battery, so it is the preferable one (2016-model has old battery pack). The power is 143HP, performances are decent and this is a practical car. In addition, the interior is the same as on petrol version.
8. 2017 BMW i3, Range: 114 miles
Perhaps it doesn’t look like BMW, but i3 is an astonishing vehicle. It even handles like a BMW and has impressive acceleration, thanks to the 170HP motor and lightweight chassis, made from carbon fiber. A base version has an 81-mile radius, but with an upgraded battery, the range is 114 miles. You can get it with a petrol engine, used as an onboard power generator.
9. 2017 Nissan Leaf, Range: 107 miles
Nissan Leaf has been one of the best electric cars. It is also one of the first cars of this kind and it is best-selling. Plenty of advantages this, small car has to offer. A range is possible due to 30 kWh battery and a decent engine. Of course, don’t expect spectacular performances, but as a city car, it is superb. We should add that it is a very comfortable car.
10. 2017 Kia Soul, Range: 93 miles
Kia Soul is a different type of car. It looks like no other and it is one of the most affordable electric cars. The power is 109HP and the top speed is 90mph. However, the car is mostly focused on the practicality!
These are the best electric cars money can buy at the moment. They are going to be the main choice in the near future!
