All the Electric Vehicles You Can Buy in 2019

We now have more choice than ever when it comes to buying an electric car (EV). In a previous post (see here) I argued for the moral clarity that everyone’s next vehicle should be an EV. This has gotten easier than ever. Prices have come down considerably for vehicles with plenty of range. I personally have a Chevy Bolt (238 miles range) and have had no problems with range winter or summer. I drive an average of 20-30 miles per day and charge at home on a regular 120 volt plug. No emissions, no noise, no maintenance, no oil, no gas,  no problem. Lower priced models will save you money in the long run.

I have divided the list between cars that will go 225 miles or more and those that won’t and would recommended cars with longer ranges unless you have a very short commute, especially if you live in a colder climate zone. Click on reviews to learn more about other features such as power, handling, room, and so forth.
