How To Invest in The Right Electric Car
If you’ve been looking into 2014 electric cars, then you’re probably wondering which is the best for both your lifestyle and your budget. Each electric car has a little something different to offer depending upon what you need – although even with today’s technology some are going to be better than others.
Volkswagen has the E-Golf, which was their first electric car. But electric still isn’t exactly what VW does, so at the moment their commitment to the technology is uncertain. You can only get about 85 miles and the starting cost is around $36,300.
The Kia Soul EV is all electric as well, offering 93 miles at $34,500. They’re not first to the list of 2014 electric cars, which means they may have used the advantage of watching the technology – unless they’re simply trying to cash in on the desire to have an electric car.
The Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive does better at 85 miles, purely electric, at $42,400. Funny enough, the powertrain isn’t powered by Mercedes tech, but Tesla – which begs the question, how much ingenuity is Mercedes really putting into their electric car?
The Tesla Model X is the newest in the Tesla line-up. Unfortunately, while it does offer a whopping 230 miles on pure electric power, you’ll have to wait for your car to be available for quite some time. You’ll also find yourself dropping a minimum of $80,000.
The BMW i3 is the lightest of all electric cars on the market today. At a minimum, you’ll get 80 miles, but you may get as much as 100 miles on the engine. The design and crafting of the i3 is what gives it the possible range, which easily outstrips much of the competition. BMW also does a lot of research and testing before thrusting cars upon drivers, as well as giving people a ton of great BMW tech on the inside, which makes it a luxury car at a great price, coming in at just $42,300. You get the most bang for the buck, and what’s not to love about having a BMW in your garage?
