Get an Affordable Electric Car With Our Help

Driving an electric car can save you big money in fuel costs, especially if you charge at home or have an employer that provides workplace charging. The price of an electric vehicle (EV), however, can be daunting, so you need to choose right.

The first step is to decide what you need in an electric car. Will it be the commuter car that takes you 20 miles back and forth to work each day, or will you expect it to replace your gasoline-powered car on weekend road trips? If it’s the former, you have plenty of options, but if you need a lot of range, your choices are more limited.

Note that not all the electric cars on this list are available in all 50 states. You won’t see the Tesla Model 3 on this list, as Tesla has indicated that manufacturing will be limited to high-cost, highly optioned models during initial production.
