The price of Volkswagen e-Golf starting from $31,345, it utilizes a 134-hp 100-kWh electric motor powered by a 35.8-kWh lithium-ion battery. The EPA estimates 125 miles of range on a single charge; fuel economy is rated at a combined 119 MPGe. An onboard charger is standard equipment. Novel packaging of the battery components avoids reducing passenger space; options include automated emergency braking and parking assist.

The electric motor has great low-end power, and the 40-kWh battery offers 151 miles of EPA-estimated range. DC quick charging can replenish 90 miles of range in 30 minutes, but a full charge from a typical 120-volt wall outlet will take 35 hours. ProPilot Assist adaptive cruise control and camera-based, self-steering lane-keeping assist is optional. A more powerful and pricier version with a longer range arrives in 2019.

6. BMW i3

As the brand it self-speaks much the BMW i3 price starts from $45,445 and unconventional, the i3 is a unique electric car. BMW has sold 100,000 number of i3 cars since 2013, but it is very less as over 80 million cars sold per year on the earth.  The funky hatchback has a structure of carbon fiber and aluminum and a standard 170-hp (i3) or 184-hp (i3s) electric motor. Both models offer an optional two-cylinder gas engine that extends the total EPA-rated range up to 180 miles. We saw 79 MPGe with the range-extended i3 and 111 MPGe with the pure EV version. The sporty i3s brings BMW’s legendary driving dynamics to the lineup with a special suspension and larger wheels.

7. Kia Soul EV

Kia Motors is a sister company of Honda Motors which is completely devoted to the making of Electric cars. The price of model Kia Soul starts at $ 33,145. The car accelerates from 0-60mph in 9.7 sec. while it has an engine of 109hp and the top speed is 92mph. It takes less than 5 hours to charge at 240-volt, in full charge can go upto 93mi to 111mi(179km). In my personal opinion look wise I don’t find it so good.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God….. go to website
