Tesla, with electric cars on the market since 2017, leads all manufacturers in sales, maintenance and possibly reliability. With federal offsets and local tax incentives, the $30,000 to $100,000 invested in an electric hybrid, plug-in, purely electric car, sports-utility vehicle or truck reduces your gasoline consumption and toxic emissions into the environment. Hyundai, Kia, Honda and Ford offer electric vehicles for your daily commute, long hours on the road or long-distance business trips. You can also compare luxury electric vehicles manufactured by Mercedes, Porsche and Volvo to reduce your dependence on fossil fuel.
RangeKia electric vehicles travel 239 miles on a single charge and get 52 miles per gallon of gas on the highway. The spacious Hyundai Kona reaches 258 miles per charge. The Honda Insight, a graceful step up from the Honda Civic, gets 47 miles per gallon on the highway and adds advanced technology and luxury craftsmanship to their already reliable Civic.
Power and PerformanceThe Toyota Prius L ECO, XLE or ECVT hybrids carry a 1.8 liter 16-valve 4-cylinder hybrid which generates 121 horsepower and 90 kilowatt hours of power. The Hyundai Kona's 201-horsepower electric motor comes with a 64.0 kilowatt-hour battery and reaches 60 miles per hour within 6.4 seconds. The Kona hybrid travels 258 miles when charged, and it gets up to 120 miles per gallon of gasoline.
SafetyThe Lexus ES luxury hybrid ranks 9.5 out of 10 on safety and reliability on the U.S. News List of Luxury Hybrids and Electric Cars. It ranks third on the list of best luxury cars for 2019. The Tesla Model S and 3 ranked first and second, and the Model 3 got a 9.8 out of 10 for safety. Tesla boasts rapid acceleration, the latest technology and low-energy consumption. Plus, Tesla electric cars are priced below Lexus and Mercedes.
Hybrid TrucksElectric pickup trucks are not yet available. The first Mercedes electric trucks, vans and buses travel up to 124 miles when charged. The first electric pickup truck released in the United States, the Ford 150, is expected to carry 1,764 pounds and tow 11,000 pounds. The Tesla pickup truck, still in the planning stages, will have an 800-volt battery, advanced driver assist features and all-wheel drive.
Expensive Replacement BatteriesIf you purchase a new electric Chevrolet Bolt, your car's battery pack is under warranty for 8 to 10 years, or for 100,000 to 150,000 miles. If you have to replace it, a 60-kilowatt per hour battery pack for your Chevy Bolt EV may cost you $15,000. The Chevrolet public relations department reports that they've never replaced an electric car battery under warranty, though, and many owners report that seven years later, they get the same mileage as they did when the car was new.
Charging Your Electric CarYour electric vehicle requires access to electricity for recharging. It only takes a few minutes to put gasoline in your gas tank, but it can take hours to recharge your electric vehicle. High elevations, extreme cold and excessive use of air conditioning depletes your electric car's energy supply, limiting its range.
