Electric cars continue to grow in popularity, with many big name automakers getting in on the action. While the number of electric sales is small when compared to more conventional vehicles, it is widely believed that the market will continue to expand in the years to come.
At the present time, there are a variety of electric cars to choose from, some of which perform at a higher level than others. The most popular options include:
The nice thing about this list is that it spans a large price range. On the low side, consumers can opt for a Leaf or Volt. Those who want to get crazy with their budget, however, can check out the Model S and B-Class.
The electric car industry is not slowing down. If anything, it is moving at a fast pace (even if you don’t recognize it). For this reason, you can expect many new additions to the market in the next two to four years.
Even though every consumer is different, meaning they have a unique taste and style, nothing changes the fact that these upcoming electric cars are in position to take the industry to new heights.
Not only is it a Tesla, which makes it an instant hit, but it is an SUV with all wheel drive. Sure, the price tag may be high (think Model S), but there will be consumers who gravitate toward the model once it is available.
Tesla again? You got it! This vehicle is already being hyped as the electric car of the future. There are a few reasons for this, including a range that rivals the current Model S. Best yet, Elon Musk (Tesla CEO) and crew have every intention on pricing it as a mass market vehicle, somewhere in the $30k to $40k range.
Coming to market in 2017, the world is anxiously awaiting the release of the Bolt. General Motors is hoping that this vehicle immediately becomes one of the top electric options on the market. There is reason for this hope, including a price tag under $40k and range of approximately 200 miles.
If you are ready to jump on board the electric vehicle train, you don’t have to wait any longer. There are many options to choose from, such as those detailed above.
Would you rather wait for electric technology to take another step forward? You aren’t alone. Some people aren’t ready to buy an electric car just yet. If you are in this group, give yourself another year or two. By that time, there will be more options to choose from.
What is your favorite electric car? What are you hoping to experience in the future?
