While the carefree Coast-to-Coast Electric Only automobile is still technically a dream (better make sure you know where those few and far between recharging stations are) that day is coming. And, while everybody going Gaga over Driverless Cars, an EV or the Hybrid is actually getting closer to being the pride and joy in anyone’s garage. Here are some of the latest reasons why…
2016 Volkswagen e-Golf
Buyers are raving about the performance of the e-Golf, even if it’s not the sexiest car on the road. But, it’s one of the cheapest. And, with a battery carriage located underneath the cabin and a range of about 85 miles, it’s the perfect fully e-Vehicle for tooling around town…
2016 BMW i3
The i3 is one of the first mass-produced vehicles which has barely any steel inside its body. It’s made from high-density carbon fiber, reducing its overall weight and giving it a sporty handle, look and feel BMW owners have come to expect, electric or otherwise.
2016 Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid
When you think of electric, the name Porsche doesn’t exactly spring to mind. But, the Panamera is every inch a car worthy of the name. Acceleration, handling and braking are pure joy and she doesn’t look too bad either. The only downside? Less than 20 miles of e-Range, making this one E-Hybrid meant to roll into a gas station on nothing but fumes…
2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid
Toyota has a knack for producing vehicles the whole family can love, and the Camry Hybrid sedan fits the bill beautifully. A 5-seater with a spacious cabin, it’s perfect for the widest range of use. But, the price is still a bit too high. Still, it represents what the standard will be when the whole world buys into the usefulness of an automobile which combines the best of both worlds.
2016 BMW i8
Speed Freaks want their sports cars to look great, handle insanely and turn every rubberneck on the road. Practical? Who cares? Yet, that’s really the best word for the BMW i8. It’s an electric vehicle even Vin Diesel would be caught dead in…
2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
If you’re trying to play down the fact you’ve learned that hybrid vehicles offer the most value, than this crossover SUV is an outstanding candidate. The Highlander, in all its incarnations, is hard to beat. Add the EV factor, and it remains a winning combination that will take the category well into the driverless car revolution.
2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid / Energi
Like Fords for more than a century, the Fusion Hybrid / Energi has become the entry-level vehicle for newbies trying out this “whole electric thing.” Don’t worry, though. It’s no Edsel…
2016 Kia Soul EV
Kia’s first entry into the EV market is just as funky and memorable as virtually every model they’ve ever produced. A game changer every time, Kia manages to keep costs down and deliver awesome performance and range. The Soul clocks in at nearly 100 miles between charges. The perfect car for the short commute, she even looks cute!
2016 Tesla Model S
The reigning Queen of the all-electric vehicle, the Tesla Model S has also gotten the worst press over the last year. But, Elon Musk stands behind his word and the 2016 version is a vast improvement over the 2015. That’s not easy to do in any line. Throw in a 200-mile range between charges, and, all of a sudden, that Cross-Country road trip without a drop of gasoline starts to sound pretty doable…
