RECHARGE or RENEWABLE POWER is the motto from now on in the car industry, especially car manufacturing houses aim to develop electric cars and take advantage of government subsidies. For example, Mahindra has e2oPlus and eVerito, while Tata Motors plans to launch an electric version of the Nano, in addition to working extensively with state-owned Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (ESSL) on electric vehicles (EV). It is not just the case for Tata, all players in the automotive sector are willing to change the game using ‘ELECTRICITY’. While many electric cars are driving on foreign roads, Indian roads have yet to see how they move. For now, let’s see which of the best electric cars are already touring elsewhere.
Chevy Bolt EV:
It’s disgusting to see the US-based Chevrolet slowly drift away from the Indian market, but people want it to hit it back with their Chevy Bolt EV. This sleek car powered by 266 pound-feet of torque is said to last nearly 238 miles (roughly 380 kms). Priced at around $ 36,000, this classic Bolt is the prime example of saying that decent things come in small but powerful packages. It’s a solid 5-seater hatchback that has a 10.2-inch infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Hyundai Ioniq Electric:
It looks extremely tall and is a first-class example of first-class features. It has a leather-wrapped steering wheel, comfortable front seats, automatic air conditioning, a 7-inch touchscreen among many other features. It runs nearly 124 miles on a single charge. Priced at less than $ 30,000, the Ioniq is available in 3 variants: plug-in hybrid, electric car, and a traditional hybrid as usual.
Merge the specs of a luxury car and eccentric design and you have the new BMW i3. 170 horsepower gives it the ruggedness and it comes with a 114-mile range. BMW i3, rightly so, a distinctive style statement costs around $ 42,000. It is expensive, but it is desirable for the simple fact that it is stylish.
Tesla Model S:
If you really love owning an electric vehicle then go for it, it’s beautiful, classy, and totally a real stuff vehicle. Tesla proudly says that this is the car that has the maximum range compared to any of its competitors today. On a single charge, it covers a total of 335 miles. You know what? It also captures 60 mph from 0 in 2.5 seconds. It costs around $ 70,000 and is rightly the best electric car.
Kia Soul EV:
This is another impressive car with a boxy design – it perfectly shows the distinction and style. It has a 93-mile range and is completely spacious and comfortable. It comes with 109HP and can easily accommodate 5 people providing maximum comfort. It is priced at around $ 34,000.
The Nissan Leaf from now on can be considered the most famous among electric vehicles, as it has its own valid and solid reasons for this. The 40 kWh battery it contains allows a journey of 400 km without interruptions on 1 full charge. It takes 8-16 hours for the battery to charge (depending on the input power capacity). Priced at roughly $ 30,000, this Japanese car also has a sleek design.
It is powerful, extremely impressive in appearance, high in features, and classy in design. We are not saying what Tesla says and if you don’t believe, you can check it out for yourself. With the highest speed (250 mph) it reaches 60 mph from 0 in less than 2 seconds. Priced at $ 200,000, it even has a removable glass roof.
