Electric vehicles are starting to take over the automotive industry. This push comes at a time of insanely high gas prices, issues with the atmosphere, and the pressure to decrease your reliance on gas powered vehicles. This push towards electric vehicles has forced companies to put an emphasis on vamping up their electric vehicles in their lineup.
It is unsurprising to see a Tesla vehicle first on this list. This specific model has sold over 250,000 units, starting with a price point of $52,990. The fuel economy is obviously a huge advantage, with an EPA max range of 330 miles. The estimated MPG is 142 combined, 150 city, 133 highway. The Tesla brand has one of the best charging networks throughout the United States, making it easy to travel across the country and never running out of energy.
The Tesla Model 3 was produced as a more affordable option for consumers. While it is the cheapest model, the price tag still starts at $42,990. They have also sold an impressive 240,000 models, making it an extremely popular model to have. It does have a slightly less EPA range than the Model Y, maxing out at 270 miles. The fuel economy has 142 miles combined, 150 city, and 133 highway.
The Model S is one of the original Tesla Models, and one of the first fully electric vehicles in America. This has a high starting price of $94,990, and have sold an impressive 176,000 units. The fuel economy is not as impressive as the newer models, with a combined MPG of 117, 121 city, and 112 highway. It does however have an impressive max range of 402 miles.
The first non-Tesla model on this list is the Kia EV6. If you are looking for a fast charging vehicle, this Kia is perfect for you, with 14.5 miles charged every minute it is connected. The starting price is at $40,900, which is lower than the Tesla Models. Despite the lower price tag, it has not been overly successful in the automotive market, selling just 80,000 units.
The Tesla Model X is the largest electric vehicle in the Tesla lineup, making it perfect for the family. The starting price is high at $98,940, which is why they have only sold 66,700 units in America. It does offer a max EPA range of 348 miles, with a combined miles per gallon of 105 miles, 109 city, and 101 highway miles.
Ford Mustang has always been synonymous with gas powered muscle cars. Ford has recognized the change in vehicle direction, leading to the Mach-E. Despite being electric, it still comes with a 480 horsepower engine, giving consumers the feel of a classic muscle car. The starting price is at $43,895, but has not been widely popular, having only sold 39,500. Many Ford fans struggle to stray away from the Mustang classic as it has been a staple in American society for many years.
The Chevrolet Bolt is the cheapest electric vehicle on this list, with a starting price of $26,500. This not only has the lowest price, but it is also the smallest vehicle on this list. It is not an extremely popular car due to its size, selling just 38,100 units. It does have an EPA range of 260 miles, with a combined miles per gallon of 118 miles, 127 city, and 108 highway miles.
The Hyundai IONIQ 5 is one of the most uniquely designed vehicles on this list. With the straight lines and arched components of the vehicle, it looks more like a futuristic car design. The starting price for this vehicle is $39,950, with 21,000 units sold. It also has an EPA range of 300 miles, with a combined miles per gallon of 110 miles, 127 city, and 94 highway miles.
While Volkswagen mostly deals with the classic buggy, it has delved into the electric world as well. The combination of luxury and a lower starting price makes this a great option for an electric vehicle. The starting price for this vehicle is $38,995, with 20,500 units sold. It also has an EPA range of 275 miles, with a combined miles per gallon of 107 miles, 116 city, and 98 highway miles.
