Best Electric Cars & SUVs for 2019-2020

2019 Hyundai Kona Electric 1:24
The Kona Electric offers an impressive 258 miles of range, an attractive interior and a long list of tech and safety features.

2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV 2:25
The Bolt leapfrogged the EV competition with its 238-mile range, quick acceleration and approachable price.

2019 Volkswagen e-Golf 3:32
The e-Golf drives well, has lots of room for people and cargo, and now offers 125 miles of range, which is plenty for how most people use their EVs.

2019 Nissan Leaf 4:37
The Leaf's much longer range — between 150 and 226 miles — and snappier acceleration are its most substantial enhancements.

2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric 5:49
The Ioniq is a tremendous value for an electric car, both in terms of cost of entry and efficiency.

2019 Tesla Model 3 8:36
The Model 3 has a unique design, an innovative user interface and impressive performance to make it a top scorer in our testing.

2019 Tesla Model S 6:45
The all-electric Tesla Model S offers exceptional performance, range and utility. It proves that EVs can be both eco-conscious and aspirational.

2019 Tesla Model X 9:49
The Model X is an unusual all-electric SUV. Its range, punchy acceleration and quiet disposition are highlights, but its gullwing doors and compromised interior packaging give us pause.

2020 Jaguar I-Pace 9:32
The I-Pace is an impressive machine that exudes style, poise, comfort and technical sophistication. This all-wheel-drive electric SUV delivers great range and good utility.

2019 BMW i3 7:37
While its 114-mile range doesn't make it the champion among EVs, the i3 does offer nimble handling, efficient packaging and a premium interior.

2020 Volkswagen ID 10:43
The ID.3 is Volkswagen's first production EV on its new MEB platform, and it's the first step in the VW Group's plan to churn out 10 million EVs over the next 10 years.

Ford EV F-150 10:45
The only thing we know for sure is that Ford is working on an electric F-150. Marketing videos have shown a prototype version towing a train in a stunt.

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC 10:51
The EQC is the first all-electric vehicle in the brand's battery-powered blitz, and it kicks off Mercedes' new electrified EQ subbrand.

2019 Audi e-tron 10:56
The 2019 Audi e-tron benefits from acceleration that is smooth, silent and swift. On top of that, the e-tron presents important advantages such as a large cargo area and a refined interior.

2020 Porsche Taycan 11:06
The Taycan is the brand's first electric car. We expect this high-performance EV to have a max range somewhere between 250 and 300 miles and performance that's worthy of the Porsche crest.

Tesla Model Y 11:28
The Model Y entices with a relatively affordable starting price, a range of 200-plus miles, and the ability to tap into Tesla's expanding Supercharger network.

Tesla Roadster 11:30
Expectations are high for the Tesla Roadster since Musk has claimed it will do 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds and the quarter-mile in less than 9 seconds, making it the quickest production car in the world.

Tesla Truck 11:32
Not many facts about the Tesla pickup are known. In the past, Musk has expressed a desire to compete with the best-selling light trucks on the market.

      Which EV would you buy and why? We often talk about range when it comes to electric cars. How many miles do you drive in a day?

      Not Which. Why buy one without answers to what is going to happen to all that toxic waste that sits under the car as rechargeable (lithium-cobalt) batteries (landfills I guess--not good)? And what is the carbon footprint generated by my electric company in order to provide the extra electrons I would need every day to run my EV? That is, what is my EV's CO2e?. Until I hear answers for those issues at least, I am out of the market (hash-tag curious about EVs, not buying).

      More worrisome to me is that by the entire industry jumping on the Tesla EV bandwagon, they have essentially shut the doors to what I understand to be a cleaner alternative even the plug-in EV, hydrogen power. What happened to hydrogen-powered electric vehicles as a large-scale replacement for the ICEV? It is probably too late to ask because we are hastily building the EV recharging infrastructure, and I am confident we will not build a third hydrogen recharging infrastructure any time soon--not to mention that all major manufacturers are gearing up to build mostly EVs in the future so there is no incentive for hydrogen fuel providers to expand out of their niche markets ... I guess!)

      @Starship Driver Uh! That's not a car it's your living room. Cars are what you DRIVE to go somewhere you are not at the moment. If you hate cars or driving that's OK with me but know the difference.

      PS, are you one of those people that parks in Handicapped just so you don't have to walk 100-feet to your car...on a sunny, warm, day, watching the lady in a wheelchair trying to get out of her van at the other end of the lot and not caring? I hope not! Walk to your car it will do you good.

      Tesla's are 4 thousand plus pounds of toxic battery waste looking for a landfill near you! Think about it.

      Sorry, but a Model S isn't a luxury car - not in the same league as the Europeans at least... 

      Jaguar have had a major software upgrade, greatly increasing the range... And I find your comment of Jaguar having "relative inexperience with EV technology" laughable frankly - they're in Formula-e (where's Tesla?), run I-Pace championship and the car has won more international awards than any other EV - by a long way.

      Just an idea why don't EV car maker use some sort of spril wind turbine while driving to use the air impact. Such wind turbines can generate huge amount of power GENERATION. Because when car is running at speed the air impact can be used to Generate electricity using screws or spiral mini turbines in front or running from front to rear in side foot panels or on roof panels. Just imagine car running at 60MPH how heavy wind impacts will be. The GENERATION TURBINES can be made with advanced materials such as like in shape of jet engines TURBINES types. Such TURBINES can be made with light materials as then car can store produced electricity in spare batteries which can be used as stand by battery. Like reserve FUEL. I am giving this idea free of charge as I am using wind mills at our agricultural farms very small wind turbine are running heavy motors & pums. In present EV cars are using break fo recharg batteries simply remove this function if weight is the issue. Really it can be revolutionary as car will keep on running for many miles or may be you never need to recharged. Thanks

      Euhm, NO.
      The extra power needed to reach a certain speed is higher than the power you can get form a turbine... Even at 100% efficiency you are dragging extra wait and the connection to the turbine also effect aerodynamics.

      How can you not figure this out on your own? it's like you're saying charge your battery, using your battery...

      The latest EPA update this week, the Tesla Model Standard Range Plus has the top efficiency rating. It also has a 250 mi EV range. My March 2019 Model 3 got an update that gives a peak, DC charge rate of 170 kW and added 5% peak power.

      Right now the price is small to charge when they start taxing for roads just like gas cars gas was 50 cents when I was young wait till when lofs of cars need a plug in and you have to wait in line for a charger.
