Row of new Tesla Model X electric cars in front of dealership
Buyer's and Seller's Advice
ByJim Gorzelany, Editor

Here’s essential information on every EV that’s sold in the U.S.

Shopping for a vehicle of any kind can be a daunting challenge, but it can be a brave new world for first-time electric-car shoppers. To help make this an easier process, we’ve dug deep into automakers’ specs sheets to construct the comprehensive chart below. It affords side-by-side comparison of all EVs offered in the U.S. for the 2019 model year. It can also be helpful if you’re looking to buy a pre-owned EV from a recent model year, like any of those listed here on MYEV.com.

 

For starters, we detail the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for each vehicle. They’re given for base models (unless otherwise indicated) and include the mandatory destination charge, but not optional equipment, registration, or taxes. Arguably the second-most critical aspect of EV shopping is to check a model’s estimated operating range on a charge. All figures cited here come from the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) testing and range from a low of 58 miles to a high of 370 miles with a fully charged battery. We’ve also included each model’s official “MPGe” ratings for city/highway driving. This is a miles-per-gallon equivalent created by the EPA as a comparison tool for consumers. It’s calculated based on a conversion factor of 33.705 kilowatt-hours of electricity equaling one theoretical gallon of gasoline. Also noted is each model’s battery capacity, which is expressed in terms of kilowatt-hours (kWh). More is generally better here.

We’ve also noted each EV’s horsepower ratings and their 0-60 mph acceleration times, with the latter coming from automakers and outside sources. We also note each model’s wheelbase (WB) and its length, width, and height measurements.

Finally, we list the amount of the one-time federal tax credit for which each qualifies. You’ll note those credits are being phased out for General Motors (Chevrolet) and Tesla models. Those automakers have already reached 200,000 EV or plug-in hybrid sales, which triggers the reduction as per federal law.

All information is current as of May 2019.
