It can be very difficult to determine which electric vehicle is right for you. Lucky for us now there are many good affordable options. Besides price, the top things you should consider when buying an electric vehicle are acceleration, top speed, charge time and range. Charge time and range are said to be the most important as they give you an idea of the convenience of the vehicle. If you are someone who drives a lot you would want a vehicle with a long range. On the other hand, if you don't drive much but stay away from home a lot, you may want a vehicle with a short charge time as electric vehicles may not be readily available in your area. Short charge time would allow you to charge your electric vehicle quickly when charging stations are available.
We love the tesla model 3 as it gives a high charge time and range rating as seen below. Take a look at which electric vehicle would be great for you. This table below describes the main highlights of each vehicle, comparing them on one easy page will make it easier to make an educated decision on which vehicle is right for you.
Keep in mind, if you are not in a rush, electric vehicle technology is only getting better and if you have the ability to wait to purchase a new vehicle it may be beneficial.
