5 Affordable Electric Cars
Electric cars are great money-saving driving alternatives. Whether you’re charging it at home or at work, your vehicle’s mileage and zero-gas expenses will save you a lot of money. To save even more money, you can pick an affordable ride. While not all electric cars are available across the U.S., a few affordable options really stick out. Let’s take a look:
1. Kia Soul EV
Starting at $33,145, the Kia Soul EV is a 93-mile-range ride with a combined 105 MPGe. The affordable EV has a 27-kWh battery which reaches 109 horsepower, powered by 210 pound-feet of torque. The 2017 Kia Soul EV has forward-wheel drive, making it an excellent city cruiser.
2. Volkswagen e-Golf
While the 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf hasn’t hit the market yet, it’s expected to be one of the most economical EVs around. Its 125-mile range is paired with 119 MPGe, and its 35.8-kWh battery manages to hit 134 horsepower while reaching 214 pound-feet of torque.
3. Nissan Leaf
Available at $29,860, the Nissan Leaf is one of today’s most popular electric vehicles. Its low base price also ranks among the best plug-in hybrids. Boasting a sizeable interior volume, much of the Leaf’s standard equipment makes its 84-mile range quite enjoyable.
4. Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid
This Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid is available for only $30,815, making it incredibly affordable at the baseline before its all-electric benefits kick in. The Prius Plug-In Hybrid does offer gas-powered driving, too, making it a solid option for drivers who want multiple fuel sources.
5. Chevrolet Spark EV
The Chevrolet Spark EV is another city-bound EV drivers on a budget can enjoy. Powered by a 240-volt charger, the Spark EV has an 82-mile range. It also has a seven-hour recharge time, so drivers are rarely left without juice. Plus, the Spark EV has a seven-inch touchscreen inside—featuring Chevrolet’s own MyLink infotainment suite.
