When it comes to electric vehicles, range is the all-important stat. Whether or not you make it to the next public-charging spot, are able to complete your daily commute, or are instead stranded on the side of the road depends on it. The EPA rates range for EVs just like it does fuel economy for gas cars. We test that range in the real world. Here's what you need to know about range, what affects it, and what you can expect from your EV.
Navigating the EV world is like traveling in a foreign country for the first time. It can seem unnerving until you've learned your way around and gotten familiar with the local customs. To live comfortably with an EV in America, you'll need to know the ins and outs of charging: how charging stations work, how you purchase the electricity to refill your EV's battery, and where to find those recharge locations around the country. Here's how it all works.
How far will it go? That's the single most important question anyone considering an EV wants the answer to. It's a generally accepted fact that most EVs can't be driven nearly as far on a single charge as most gas-powered cars can go on a tank of fuel. And EV batteries can't be rejuiced in the five minutes it takes to top up a car's tank at a gas station. So, if you're thinking about buying an EV, you want to know what your choices are, starting with range. We have your answers right here: every currently available EV model ranked by its EPA combined driving range, from worst to best.
EV tax credits are nonrefundable federal tax credits available to purchasers of vehicles with a battery propulsion system that draws power from an external power source. In other words, both pure electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids qualify. The federal government has been offering a $7500 credit since 2010, and most carmakers' EVs are still eligible for it. The credits earned depend on a variety of factors and are used to decrease taxes you owe in a given year. They can bring down the price of an EV significantly, so you need to know about how to apply for and receive them. Find out what tax credits are available here.
