With models like Porsche, Tesla and other brands coming to be battery-powered, buying an electric car doesn’t have to compromise heavily on performance or luxury. In fact, electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming more affordable as the market adapts, but some options are still incredibly expensive.
Today, most Americans can only dream of owning an electric car costing just over $100,000. However, as electric vehicles become more popular and mainstream, this price becomes more accessible to the everyday consumer.
