The list of available all-electric vehicles is growing at a steady clip as more automakers introduce new models. Electric car range is growing as well, and prices are coming down. Remember that purchasing a fully electric vehicle entitles you to up to a $7,500 federal tax credit – at least for now.

You can get in an electric car (EV) like the Ford Focus Electric, Volkswagen e-Golf, or Hyundai Ioniq for around $22,000 after the federal rebate. This is lower than the average new car price in the United States. Like traditional gas cars, electric cars range from subcompact city cars, to luxury 3-row SUVs.

If you’re seeking a luxury EV, the highly efficient BMW i3 is one option. Additionally, Tesla offers the Model S sedan and the Model X SUV, both of which rank at the top of their segments and can cost you well over $100,000 fully loaded. The Silicon Valley automaker’s much more affordable Model 3 compact sedan will begin to hit markets later this year.

The following slideshow offers an extensive list of all-electric vehicles currently on the market, although some are not available in all states. Also mentioned is one upcoming model that aims to significantly further the momentum of the EV segment.
