It’s time to take a look. Electric vehicles (EVs) have become an incredibly viable option for more people. Today, you can buy an electric car in almost every vehicle class. More models, including crossovers, minivans, hatchbacks, and sedans are available and the used EV market is expanding.
Electric cars offer consumers affordable, efficient, safe, and high-tech transportation. Today, new-car buyers can choose from over 40 makes and models. By 2022, more than 90 electric vehicle options are projected.
