It seems like every auto manufacturer out there is working on adding electric vehicles to their lineups with new cars and SUVs for your drive.
EVs offer the same style, comfort, and capability as their gas-powered counterparts but reduce the driver’s need for stops at the pump. With more people being conscious of their impact on the environment along with the rising costs of fuel, electric vehicles are going to continue to improve.
Here are some of the top electric SUVs that you might consider making yours:
The Hyundai Kona EV
The subcompact Hyundai Kona has been turning heads since it first hit the road, but nothing prepared drivers for its newest EV rendition. Everything you love about the gas-powered Hyundai Kona is only enhanced. Start with an electric motor that pushes out a nice 201 horsepower while offering 258 miles of range on a single charge.
You’ll notice other amazing similarities between the electric and gas-powered Kona as well. Check out the massive 10.3-inch touchscreen display that features built-in navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and an available eight-speaker Infinity sound system.
The Chevrolet Bolt
People who have been watching Chevy’s new releases will recognize the Bolt name. The Bolt hatchback has been drawing attention for some time now, but the SUV version is bringing a lot more to the table.
Start with a 200-hp electric engine that has an EPA-estimated 250-mile range on a single charge. While the Bolt SUV has some serious competition out there, Chevy is banking on innovative features like semi-autonomous driving to really stand out. Drivers can also enjoy upgrades like an integrated Wi-Fi hotspot, Amazon Alexa, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.
The Kia Niro
The Kia Niro has a unique look that helps it gain more attention than its rivals. It has a long and low build that makes it look like an SUV and wagon hybrid. While the Niro is available with gas and plug-in hybrid powertrains, the fully electric option is where it’s at.
The 201-hp engine helps drivers jump from zero to 60 mph in a mere 6.5 seconds. You’ll also enjoy 239 miles of range on a full charge.
Where the Niro really earns its popular reputation is with the full slew of refined and luxurious options. You’ll enjoy things like wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, along with a remote start that can also kick on your climate control system. The navigation-based adaptive cruise control is also available, which makes this SUV worth a second look.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E
Those who love the Ford Mustang sports car might be a little disappointed to hear that the Mach-E is an SUV, but they’ll quickly see why this crossover earned the Mustang name. As Ford’s first all-electric SUV, it raises the bar on what’s possible with an EV.
Choose between two battery packs. When you go with the 988 kWh extended pack, you’ll enjoy a massive 480 horsepower and 634 lb-ft of torque. That means you can shoot from zero to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds.
Outside of the Mach-E’s incredible performance, you can expect all of the modern tech features and luxurious comforts that helped make the gas-powered Mustang so popular.
