Ryan OlbryshCar and Driver

Electric vehicles make up a small percentage of the total automotive market today, but their appeal continues to grow as the automakers expand their range, performance, and style—and as recharging becomes quicker and easier. Shoppers looking for zero-emissions driving now have an expansive list of vehicles to choose from, with a wide variety of body styles and several different price points. To make it easy on you, we’ve compiled them all in one place and listed them in order of their combined MPGe ratings from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We’ve also included each one’s city and highway figures, too, for good measure. MPGe is a calculation of an electric vehicle’s efficiency, much like the miles-per-gallon rating of any conventional gas- or diesel-powered car, truck, or SUV. But a higher MPGe rating doesn’t always equate to a class-leading range figure. We’ve provided both of these numbers so you can choose the best EV for your family, lifestyle, and driving habits. Please note that this list includes only those EVs that draw their power from the country’s electrical power grid, which means it won’t have the market’s fuel-cell cars that propel themselves with electricity but are fueled by hydrogen.

GMC Hummer EV — 47 MPGe

Due to its status as a heavy-duty vehicle by the EPA, the all-wheel-drive GMC Hummer EV goes without the typical fuel economy equivalency and range ratings the government pins on electric vehicles sold in the U.S. Still, documents GMC submitted to the EPA include this information for the $112,595 tri-motor Hummer EV Edition 1, the sole variant of the model that’s currently available. A lower-grade Hummer EV3x is due by the end of 2022, with cheaper dual-motor Hummer EV2x and Hummer EV2 trims due in early 2023 and 2024, respectively.

  • Base price: $112,595
  • EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 47/51/43 MPGe

Although there are a number of electric SUVs on sale today, there are only a few such models available with three rows of seating. Rivian, however, adds another option to the mix by way of its R1S. No, it’s not quite as efficient as, say, the Tesla Model X, but with a starting sum just a little south of $80,000, the R1S promises to undercut the base price of the big Tesla SUV by approximately $30,000. That delta ought to widen in the future, too, with Rivian set to start producing the R1S with the cheaper Explore package next year (all 2022 Rivians come equipped with the $5500 Adventure package). Plus, thanks to its large 135.0-kWh battery pack, the R1S is capable of traveling an EPA-rated 316 miles on a full charge.

  • Base price: $79,075
  • EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 69/73/65 MPGe
  • EPA combined range: 316 miles

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE R1S

Complementing Rivian’s R1S SUV is the company’s R1T pickup truck. Like its SUV counterpart, the R1T comes standard with a 135.0-kWh battery pack. A larger capacity 180.0-kWh battery pack is due in 2023 and is expected to push the truck’s range past 400 miles. As it stands, the 2022 R1T manages a respectable 314 miles of driving range on a full charge.

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo — 76 MPGe

Porsche’s Taycan EV line now includes a wagon body style. Dubbed the Taycan Cross Turismo, the off-road-oriented wagon benefits from a raised ride height, additional body cladding, and standard dual-motor all-wheel drive. Likewise, the Taycan Cross Turismo forgoes the sedan’s base 79.2-kWh battery pack. Instead, the wagon comes exclusively with the larger capacity 93.4-kWh unit. As a result, the entry-level Taycan 4 Cross Turismo offers an EPA-rated 215 miles of range—15 more than the more energy-efficient base Taycan sedan. While the Taycan 4 Cross Turismo’s peak 469-hp ought to be plenty for most buyers, the model is also available in more powerful 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S trims, each of which makes a peak of 562, 670, and 750 horsepower, respectively.

  • Base price: $95,050
  • EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 76/76/77 MPGe
  • EPA combined range: 215 miles

Jaguar I-Pace — 76 MPGe

Jaguar’s first electric vehicle gets a small update for the 2022 model year. Alas, EPA figures for the 2022 I-Pace are still a mystery. As such, we’re including the range and efficiency figures of the pre-facelift I-Pace (we’ll update these figures as soon as the EPA releases those of the 2022 I-Pace). Jaguar offers the model strictly in EV400 guise. As such, the all-wheel-drive electric SUV comes standard with a 90.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack and two electric motors (one at each axle), which produce a heady 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque. This results in an SUV that can hit 60 mph in less than five seconds. The I-Pace is also a family-friendly vehicle, with seating for five, 25 cubic feet of rear cargo space, and a small front trunk.

  • Base price: $71,050

Audi e-tron Sportback — 77 MPGe

The Audi e-tron Sportback is a sharper version of the e-tron SUV. The five-passenger two-row electric SUV is heavyset, hitting the scales at 5819 pounds, almost 100 pounds heavier than our long-term Ram 1500. Despite this, it’s still quicker than the big half-ton truck. A 5.1-second zero-to-60 time is possible courtesy of the peak 402 horsepower the e-tron Sportback’s two motors (one at each axle) produce. Much of the Audi’s heft can be attributed to its 95.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The e-tron Sportback’s EPA estimates are slightly worse than those of the standard version, with an estimated range of 218 miles on a full charge.

  • Base price: $70,195
  • EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 77/76/78 MPGe
  • EPA combined range: 218 miles

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE E-TRON SPORTBACK

Audi’s all-wheel-drive e-tron SUV is also available in a boxier form for those looking for additional cargo space. A sizable 95.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack and two electric motors (one at each axle) generate a peak of 402 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque. Unfortunately, the Audi’s 222 miles of range isn’t that impressive. That said, the e-tron hits 60 mph in a claimed 5.5 seconds, so it’s at least rather quick.

  • Base price: $66,995
  • EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 78/78/77 MPGe
  • EPA combined range: 222 miles

Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo — 80 MPGe

Want the utility of the Taycan Cross Turismo minus the SUV-like body cladding? Then the Taycan Sport Turismo is the electric Porsche for you. Offered strictly in 590-hp GTS guise, the $134,650 Taycan Sport Turismo is not just the best-looking (in our opinion at least) Taycan wagon trim, it’s also the most efficient. Its 80 MPGe combined nets the Sport Turismo an EPA-rated range of 233 miles—18 miles more than the longest-range Taycan Cross Turismo.

Audi e-tron GT — 82 MPGe

Audi’s take on the Porsche Taycan bears the name e-tron GT. Sharing its key mechanical bits with Porsche’s electric sedan, the e-tron GT wears distinct bodywork and interior decor. Two flavors of Audi’s low-slung EV are available: standard e-tron GT and rowdy RS e-tron GT. Both come exclusively with all-wheel drive, courtesy of an electric motor at each axle, and a 93.4-kWh battery pack. The two electric motors in the entry-level e-tron GT work together to produce a combined peak of 522 horsepower, while the RS e-tron GT ups the ante to 637 ponies. Avoid the pricier RS model if efficiency is what you’re after, as its 232 miles of driving range falls short of the standard e-tron GT’s 238-mile range.

  • Base price: $103,445
  • EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 82/81/83 MPGe
  • EPA combined range: 238 miles

Porsche Taycan — 83 MPGe

Porsche’s entry in the EV segment is the slick-looking Taycan (pronounced TIE-kahn, not TAY-can) sedan. The model is at its most efficient form in its rear-drive base and all-wheel-drive 4S guises. Both models manage a combined 79 MPGe and come standard with a 79.2-kWh battery pack (the 4S is optionally available with a larger 93.4-kWh battery pack, which lowers the trim’s EPA combined figure to 77 MPGe). Despite their efficiency, the Taycan and Taycan 4S sedans offer the least driving range in the Taycan model line, with the base car capable of going 200 miles on a full charge, per the EPA, and the 4S rated at 199 miles (adding the bigger battery pack increases the range of the 4S to 227 miles). While the entry-level $84,050 Taycan makes do with a peak of 402 horses from its lone rear motor, dual-motor all-wheel-drive Taycan sedans offer as few as 522 horsepower (4S) and as many as 750 ponies (Turbo S). Going for the most power takes a hit on the Taycan’s efficiency, though, with the Turbo S returning a combined 70 MPGe and offering a driving range of 201 miles. If you want the most range, then the $132,750 GTS trim is the way to go. The sporty model returns 83 MPGe combined and manages 246 miles of driving range on a full charge, per the EPA.

Volvo XC40 Recharge — 85 MPGe

Volvo claims its 402-hp XC40 Recharge can do a zero-to-60-mph launch in 4.7 seconds. A 78.0-kWh battery pack provides the all-wheel-drive SUV’s two electric motors with enough energy to allow the XC40 Recharge to go 223 miles on a full charge, per the EPA. Thanks to its frunk cargo area, the XC40 Recharge has more space to store things versus the gas-powered XC40.

The BMW iX’s design may polarize, but its elegantly appointed interior is sure to impress. As its all-wheel-drive battery-electric powertrain, which includes two electric motors (one at each axle) that produce a total of 516 horsepower. Yes, the iX packs serious dynamic performance. And yet, it’s also surprisingly efficient. Its 86 MPGe combined figure helps this big SUV earn an EPA-rated range of 324 miles.

  • Base price: $84,195
  • EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 86/86/87 MPGe

Volvo C40 Recharge — 87 MPGe

If the Volvo XC40 Recharge’s boxy look doesn’t do it for you, then maybe the C40 Recharge’s swoopy shape will. What’s more, the C40 Recharge is more efficient than its squarer counterpart. As a result, this coupe-like electric SUV nets an EPA-rated driving range of 226 miles—3 miles more than the rated range of the XC40 Recharge.

  • Base price: $59,845
  • EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 87/94/80 MPGe

The Mazda MX-30 is a stylish but underwhelming EV. Blame the front-drive SUV’s 35.5-kWh battery pack, which nets the little Mazda an EPA-rated driving range of just 100 miles. The MX-30’s $34,695 base price is also notably higher than more efficient and longer-range EVs such as the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV. Nevertheless, if you’re determined to get your hands on an MX-30, then you better live in—or be prepared to travel to—California, as Mazda’s EV is (for now, at least) sold exclusively in the Golden State.

  • EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 92/98/85 MPGe
  • EPA combined range: 100 miles

Audi Q4 e-tron — 95 MPGe (tie)

Audi’s take on the Volkswagen ID.4 bears the name Q4 e-tron. Befitting its reputation, the four-ringed brand’s battery-electric SUV is notably swankier than its more mainstream VW cousin. The cabin is far less utilitarian and a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes standard. A pair of electric motors produce a total of 295 horsepower, while a 77.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack affords up to 241 miles of EPA-rated driving range.

  • Base price: $51,095

Audi Q4 e-tron Sportback — 95 MPGe (tie)

Want a Q4 e-tron with a little more style and a little less cargo room? Then the Q4 e-tron Sportback is the Audi electric SUV for you. It shares the same dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain as the squareback Q4 e-tron. No surprise, these two Q4s are equally as efficient, with both models offering an EPA-estimated range of 241 miles.

  • Base price: $53,895

Meet Mercedes’s take on the electric luxury sedan formula: the EQS. Serving as the electric counterpart to the automaker’s S-class flagship sedan, the EQS is currently available in rear-drive single-motor 450+ and all-wheel-drive dual-motor 580 guises (a more driver-focused AMG-badged EQS53 is due to join the model line later in the year). The former packs 329 horsepower and offers an EPA-rated driving range of 350 miles. The latter, meanwhile, packs a combined peak output of 516 horses and is capable of traveling 340 miles on a full charge.

Ford Mustang Mach-E — 101 MPGe

Just because it doesn’t have the growl of Mustangs before it, doesn’t mean the Ford Mustang Mach-E can’t run wild. The GT Performance variant has 634 pound-feet of torque, nine more than the 760-hp supercharged V-8 Shelby Mustang GT500. During our testing with the dual-motor 346-hp Mach-E Premium AWD, we hit 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds, putting it just one-tenth of a second behind the Mustang 2.3L High Performance. So despite the dog and pony show about names, we’d say the word Mustang fits this EV well. Plus, it’s certainly wildly better looking than that thing they made in 1973. And for those keeping track, the 15.5-inch vertically oriented touchscreen is half an inch larger than that of the Tesla Model Y.

  • Base price: $44,995

Tesla Model X — 102 MPGe

Tesla is currently advertising two trim levels for its Model X SUV: the standard dual-motor model and the tri-motor Plaid trim. Both feature all-wheel drive and offer more than 300 miles of range, according to the EPA. A massive touchscreen infotainment system and breathtaking acceleration are also part of the Model X’s appeal.

Polestar 2 — 107 MPGe (tie)

The Polestar 2 looks more ordinary than insane, which was sort of the whole point behind the company’s first EV, and sort of the whole style of minimalistic Scandinavian design. On the inside, however, things are hardly normal. The standard Polestar 2’s guts are vegan—no, seriously. No animal products are used to make it. The Polestar 2 also uses Google’s Android operating system, so its 11.2-inch infotainment touchscreen should look especially familiar to those with Pixel smartphones. Its minimalist looks highlight its varsity athlete performance. The all-wheel-drive 2 can get to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds, a tenth-of-second behind our long-term Tesla Model 3’s trot to the mile-a-minute mark. While the 2 can’t quite match the Tesla’s EPA-rated range, the little Polestar still manages to travel up to 270 miles on a full-charge in front-drive guise. Opting for all-wheel drive, meanwhile, lowers that sum to 249 miles.

Volkswagen ID.4 — 107 MPGe (tie)

Volkswagen kicks off its electric future in the United States with the ID.4 compact SUV. The 201-hp rear-drive ID.4 Pro is the starting trim, and it returns 107 MPGe and offers a driving range of 275 miles on a full charge, per the EPA. Those in search of additional oomph can opt for all-wheel drive, which adds a second motor that powers the front wheels. It works with the rear motor to produce a combined peak of 295 horses. Opting for all-wheel drive, however, reduces the ID.4’s driving range to 251 miles on a full charge.

  • Base price: $42,525
  • EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 107/116/98 MPGe

The BMW i4 is an electric sedan available in two distinct flavors for 2022: the sensible eDrive40 and the racier M50. The former i4 variant packs a single rear-axle-mounted electric motor that makes 335 horsepower. An 80.7-kWh battery pack supplies enough electricity to take the i4 eDrive40 more than 300 miles on a full charge, according to the EPA. Opting for the pricier all-wheel-drive i4 M50 nets a total of 536 horses courtesy of the model’s two electric motors (one at each axle), good enough to get this sleek sedan to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds. Alas, the additional power of the M50 drops the i4’s driving range down to an EPA-estimated 245 miles.

Mini Cooper SE Electric — 110 MPGe

The small front-wheel-drive Mini Hardtop Cooper SE is powered by a single electric motor mounted under its hood that generates 181 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. The battery pack is under the floor, which gives the Cooper SE a low center of gravity and preserves its cargo space. Three trim levels are offered with the base Signature model starting at $30,750. Alas, the battery pack’s limited capacity nets the electric Mini an EPA-rated range of just 114 miles. Besides some small decor differences, the Cooper SE looks basically like every other Mini Hardtop model. Mini even left the gas-powered Hardtop Cooper S’s hood scoop in place.

Nissan sells two versions of its Leaf electric vehicle: the basic Leaf, with a 40.0-kWh battery pack, and the Leaf Plus, which features a larger 62.0-kWh pack. While the lesser Leaf’s combined 111 MPGe rating makes it the efficiency champ, its smaller battery pack means the model’s driving range is a measly EPA-rated 149 miles. The Plus stretches that figure to 226 miles, albeit while returning a combined 108 MPGe, per the EPA.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 — 114 MPGe

Competing with the likes of the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 offers two different battery pack options and single-motor rear-wheel drive or dual-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain choices. The cheapest Ioniq 5 is the $40,925 SE trim, which comes standard with rear-wheel drive and a 58.0-kWh battery pack option that’s good for 220 miles of driving range and 110 MPGe combined. If you want the most efficient Ioniq 5, though, then you’ll have to upgrade to the EV’s available 77.4-kWh battery pack and avoid ticking the box for all-wheel drive. Opting for the larger capacity battery adds $3,950 to the Ioniq 5 SE’s base price, but nets it (as well as rear-drive Ioniq 5s in SEL and Limited guise, both of which come standard with the 77.4-kWh pack) an EPA-rated driving range of 303 miles and a combined fuel economy equivalency figure of 114 MPGe.

Chevrolet Bolt EUV — 115 MPGe

If the run-of-the-mill Chevrolet Bolt EV’s looks aren’t tough enough for you, then maybe the Bolt EUV’s are. Measuring 6.3 inches longer, as well as 0.2 inch wider and taller, than the Bolt EV, the EUV brings more SUV-like looks to Chevy’s entry-level EV model range. That said, the two Bolts share the same mechanical bits, including a 200-hp front-mounted electric motor and 65.0-kWh battery pack. The $2,000 difference between the $33,995 Bolt EUV and the $31,995 Bolt EV, however, nets the EUV a more spacious backseat relative to its smaller kin. The bigger Bolt model is also available with optional extras such as a sunroof and GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driving assist system, neither of which are offered on the more energy-efficient Bolt EV.

  • Base price: $33,995

Kia adds a second electric vehicle to its lineup for 2022. The EV6 sits above the Niro EV in Kia’s lineup, but it stickers for just $910 more than its lesser stablemate. Opting for the $42,115 EV6 nets buyers a single rear-mounted motor and a 58.0-kWh battery pack, a combination good for 232 miles of driving range and a combined fuel economy rating of 117 MPGe. Those in search of additional range without any loss in efficiency can drop $6100 to nab a rear-drive EV6 with a larger 77.4-kWh pack. So-equipped, the EV6 is capable of traveling an EPA-rated 310 miles on a full charge. All-wheel drive is an available option for EV6s with the larger-capacity battery, but the two-motor setup drops the vehicle’s range relative to its rear-drive counterpart.

This means the bow-tie-badged hatchback continues to make do with a 65.0-kWh battery pack that feeds a 200-hp electric motor. The Bolt EV’s driving range remains unchanged, as well, with the EPA estimating the front-drive Chevy can travel 259 miles on a full charge.

The Hyundai Kona Electric checks all boxes with spunky driving dynamics, an impressive driving range, a generous warranty, a spacious interior, and attractive styling. Plus, it’s competitively priced and offers an EPA-rated range of 258 miles on a full charge. However, if you were hoping for all-wheel drive, you’re out of luck. It isn’t offered on the Kona Electric. A 64.0-kWh battery pack feeds a 201-hp electric motor, which drives the front wheels.

Tesla Model S — 120 MPGe (tie)

There were electric vehicles long before the Model S, but Tesla’s flagship sedan is the one that proved efficient, fast, and attractive EVs are marketable to the masses. Introduced way back in 2012, the Model S remains as appealing as ever, from its sleek muscular styling to its minimalistic interior. Its performance is still ahead of the industry that it dragged, kicking and screaming, into the EV business. Tesla has made improvements over the years, cranking up the hatchback’s acceleration and range. Today, Tesla offers the Model S in either its dual-motor standard guise or tri-motor Plaid trim. The latter packs a combined peak of 1020 horsepower. That’s enough grunt to scoot the $137,440 Plaid to 60 mph in 2.1 seconds.

Don’t let the Tesla Model Y’s looks fool you, because it’s larger than it appears. At 187.0 inches long, the Y is 4.9 inches longer than a 2022 Honda CR-V and 2.6 inches wider. Its rounded design is right out of Tesla’s playbook, sort of a cross between the Model 3 sedan and the Model X SUV. Currently, Tesla offers two Model Y trims: the Long Range and the Performance. Both feature all-wheel drive by way of an electric motor at each axle.
