Electric cars are taking over the minds of many but not as much land in people’s garages. Part of the reason is the hefty price tag that comes attached to buying these green vehicles. Other smaller parts include the lack of performance as compared to old-school fuel-powered vehicles. However, technology keeps making advances, and there are some undeniably tempting options in the electric vehicles industry with some well-loved and preferred names attached to them. Here are some top electric car models and their prices
1. MINI Cooper SE Electric Hardtop
MINI Cooper has been one of the favorites among many; it is only obvious that a green car version of the classic would appeal to the masses. For the lucky people eligible to have access to the federal electric car tax, the MINI Cooper SE Electric HArdtop comes at the price of $23,000; for the rest of us, the price lies at $29,900. The car comes with a user-friendly infotainment system, a single electric motor, and stunning exteriors. The charging time to get the battery to full capacity is 5 hours, and it delivers 110 miles of driving range. You can just as quickly charge the MINI at home with a 7.4KW outlet and five hours to spare.
2. Chevrolet Bolt
Another budget-friendly buy to appear in the EV market is the Chevrolet Bolt. The Bolt has roomy interiors that will appeal to anyone wanting a comfortable ride. The fully electric car is capable of providing you with 259 miles of driving range when completely charged. With the DC fast charge option, it can deliver a range of 100 miles in 30 minutes. The car’s other additional features include a 10.3-inch touchscreen, Teen Driver technology, Android AutoTM compatibility, and Apple CarPlay. All of this can be bagged with a price starting at $36,620.
3. Tesla Model 3
Tesla is one of the most popular names to have emerged in the electric vehicles industry; it does not hurt that the Tesla Model 3 is also among the cheapest available options. The machine comes in a futuristic look with ample space for the occupants. The cargo isn’t all that small either. The EV also includes a dash camera built in along with a 15-inch touchscreen display designed to make things easier. The easy-to-handle motor is available at just $37,500 if you choose to go with the standard model.
