We Rank Today’s Battery-Electric Vehicles

Have you been considering switching to an electric car? Many automakers are beginning to bring electric vehicles (EVs) to market, battery technology is improving, and range is increasing. With growing competition, EVs are now available in a variety of styles and sizes.

Why buy an EV? Operating an electric car is significantly cheaper than a gas-powered vehicle. EVs are incredibly energy-efficient, and electricity is inexpensive compared to gas. They also require very little maintenance, there are virtually no fluids to change, and they have fewer moving parts than traditional cars, which means less chance of something breaking. Additionally, electric power means instant torque, quiet operation, and zero tailpipe emissions.

In this article, we rank today’s EVs based on range. The average American drives about 30 to 40 miles per day. There’s not a single car on our list that can’t handle that and then some. The best part is you never have to stop for gas, and when you get home, you simply plug in your car and it’s ready to go the next morning.

At the end of the slideshow, we feature some brand-new models that will be available soon. They aren’t scored, since we don’t have enough information yet to include them in our new car rankings.

It’s important to note that scores and rankings mentioned in our articles may not always match up with those in our reviews. This is because we regularly update information as new expert reviews and data become available.
