Are you sick of paying an arm and a leg at the gas pump? Or maybe you’re just fed up with driving conventional cars that are bad for the environment. Whatever the case, you’re looking for an electric vehicle. Here are the 15 best EVs to buy in 2024!

Renault Scenic E-Tech

Renault’s Scenic E-Tech is essentially the same car as the company’s Megane E-Tech Electric with one notable change: it’s got more room in the back. This one also has better range, coming in around 391 miles on a full charge. That’s not bad!

Fiat 500

The small, adorable Fiat 500 isn’t great for families, but it’s perfect if you just need to get around. It’s fun to drive and has just enough range to get you out of the city, allowing it to be your only car if you don’t mind a lack of space.

Maserati GranTurismo Folgore

The GranTurismo Folgore is a fetching vehicle, as it should be, with classic Maserati design flourishes meeting some new aesthetics. It’s also clearly a Maserati in the way it drives, which is to say that it’s fun to get behind the wheel!

BMW i4

The BMW i4 is one of the few true competitors (in price range and performance) to the Tesla Model 3. Part of its appeal is its classic styling, as it looks more grounded and “reasonable” than alternatives like the Model 3, Model Y, and Polestar 2.

Speaking of the Polestar 2, it’s not a bad-looking vehicle. In fact, it’s quite futuristic! It has a straightforward suite of features, great performance on the road, and enough range to get you where you need to go without needing to be constantly hooked up to the charger.

Volkswagen ID.7

Sometimes, you just want a spacious, comfortable car irrespective of its drivetrain. That’s what you get with the ID.7, the first of VW’s ID lineup to cut the nonsense and just be a good daily driver. User-friendly, accessible vehicles are VW’s bread and butter, so it’s encouraging to see them embracing that here.

Jeep Avenger

Yeah, there’s an electric Jeep. Weird, right? And, what’s weirder, it absolutely rules. The Avenger is comfortable, sports great battery life, and is as durable as you want a Jeep to be. You’re not compromising anything for an electric drivetrain in this stylish, unmistakable Jeep.

Tesla Model 3

It’s been seven years since Tesla introduced the Model 3, and the thing still has legs. It’s just a great car, Elon Musk’s antics notwithstanding. It’s fast, it’s comfortable, and it’s frankly just fun to drive. It’s the benchmark for a great electric vehicle.

BMW i5

Tesla’s Model S isn’t so lucky, though. It’s outclassed in every meaningful way by the BMW i5. The i5 handles better, feels more comfortable inside, and just looks better. It’s pricey, but it’s well worth the investment if you want a luxury full-electric SUV.

Dacia Spring

The Dacia Spring’s best characteristics are its humility, straightforward design, and no-frills driving performance. It’s the kind of car you can actually forget is electric during your daily commute due to its weight being the same as a conventional engine.

Porsche Taycan

Not everyone can afford a Porsche, and the Taycan is no exception. However, if you can swing this investment, it’s worth it. This muscular, mean-spirited little monster is a Porsche in every way, it just happens to have an electric drivetrain instead of a gas-powered engine.

BMW i7

Yes, BMW appears on this list three times. Yes, they earned each entry. Their electric cars are just good! The BMW i7 is a luxurious vehicle, boasting what might be the best interior in the industry. It’s also got that classic BMW “oomph” you want when you push the acceleration.

Why is the humble MG4 so high on this list? Well, it’s a great value for your money. It’s fast, good-looking, charges quickly, and has enough range to get you around outside of just urban commuting. That’s nothing to sneeze at with its price point!

It’s perhaps a bit strange to see a Hyundai so high here, but the Ioniq 5 N is a special car. It’s fast, it’s zippy, and it’s aggressive. It can do things conventional cars can’t do. It’s got a drive train that interestingly mimics the performance of a gas-powered engine when it wants to but can kick it up with electric torque when the moment is right.

The Spectre is something else entirely. It’s a relic of the past—a big, gaudy Rolls-Royce—wrapped around a modern electric drive train. It straddles the line between overindulgent and tasteful in that iconic Rolls-Royce fashion, making a statement in multiple ways at the same time.
