Electric vehicles have the potential to transform transportation and mitigate air pollution in cites. They are also one of the best option on the road to environmental sustainability because they do not emit exhaust gases. Electric car are convenient, cost less to drive and are much quieter to operate than other types of vehicles (fossil fuel engine). Electric vehicles/cars are not just the wave of the future, they are saving lives today. Automakers add more EVs to their lineups and increasing day-by-day, we have seen every year. Electric Vehicles are the future of our Globe and these are the best weapon to reduce greenhouse gases.

It’s very compliant on the road with its comfort-focused suspension soaking up all the bumps and making it very nice to drive. The 102kWh battery pack allows for up to 388 miles of range and it can be charged at up to 200kW on DC. It is very pricey, though, and the styling won’t appeal to everyone.

While it may not be the most attractive or inspiring to look at, it’ll help make the most of its huge 108kWh battery pack. Combining the sleek shape and huge battery, you can do 453 miles in its most efficient form and very few cars can get close to that. The cabin is excellently kitted out, while there’s decent space and lots of equipment as standard. It does command a rather steep asking price though.

Building on the success of the Model 3, the Model Y SUV is supremely practical and best-suited to families wanting an all-electric wagon. If you can look past the non-descript design, the Y is a great car overall, with its cavernous load spaces and comfortable cabin. While you’ll need to get used to having all the major controls put through the 15-inch central touchscreen, the design is very clean and tidy. It can feel a bit firm on the road, but it’ll go very far on a full battery as you get up to 331 miles on a single charge in the Long Range version.

A vision of the future you can drive on the road today, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 looks like nothing on the road, its angular lines and dot-matrix-style rear lights blending together to create a car for the digital age. The Ioniq 5 is far more that just a stylish car, though: the comfortable ride and laid-back interior make for a truly relaxing driving experience, while it’s also very practical, being larger and more SUV-like than its looks might imply. The 77kWh 228hp model is the pick of the range, offering decent performance, plus the ability to go up to 315 miles (officially) on a single charge.

The boot is one highlight, with the 585 litres you get back there being commensurate with Skoda’s practical ethos, while the model range starts with a 60kWh battery for 246 official miles of range,or you can pay around $2200 extra for the 80kWh battery, which can cover up to 338 miles between charges.

Nissan arguably created the modern mid-size SUV when it launched the Qashqai back in 2006, and it’ll be hoping the recently released Ariya finds similar success. It certainly deserves to, with the Ariya’s sleek exterior styling being carried over to the modern, plush cabin, which really moves things on for the brand. Battery-wise, the range begins with a 63kWh offering, which officially provides 250 miles of range, or you can upgrade to the 87kWh model, and up that figure to 329 miles.

Given that it’s a small, affordable EV, the Peugeot e-208 still hits hard when it comes to looking and feeling posh inside. It’s entertaining around town and on a good road, and its 225-mile range isn’t bad for a car of this size either. The model line-up starts with Active Premium trim, which brings 16-inch alloy wheels, reversing sensors and manual air-conditioning, but we’d consider upgrading to Allure Premium, which is roughly $1500 more and brings climate control, a reversing camera and leather-effect seats, among other goodies. GT and GT Premium are a further $2100 and $3100 above Allure Premium, adding features such as an upgraded 10-inch touchscreen, LED headlights and a bodykit.

Some fans of fast Fords were aghast when the Mustang nameplate was attached to an electric car, but the Mustang Mach-E proved such concerns were unfounded when it arrived. Because while the Mustang Mach-E might be a big, practical family SUV, that doesn’t mean it misses out on being quite good fun to drive. It’s quick too, and has an electric range of up to 379 miles.

With its funky styling both inside and out, the GV60 is a left-field yet very compelling choice as an EV SUV. Sitting on the same platform as the Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5, the GV60 offers a decent range of 321 miles in its most efficient setup. There’s decent space throughout too, and with Genesis being more of a premium-feeling option, you get lots of funky styling details, including the crystal orb that flips over into being the gear selector. The ride comfort could be better though, as could the infotainment system, which can be fiddly to use on the go.
20. Cupra Born

Cupra used to be the performance arm of SEAT, but split off from the firm to become a standalone company in 2018.

Offered with a 58kWh or 77kWh battery, the former brings 260 miles of range, while the latter manages 340 miles officially, making it a strong contender in this class. Upgrading the battery costs roughly $4500, though that price also brings a trim upgrade.
