The automotive industry has gone fully electric and for the right reasons. Gone are the days when the electric cars were inadequate, the target of jokes and only a few models were available for the car-buying public. Today, the electric cars are considered as cost-efficient, hip and stylish way to drive without having to harm the environment. Although the concept behind the electric cars isn’t new (the first few EVs were manufactured during the late 19th century), today’s car manufacturers have added a few more trimmings and modifications on the EVs to appeal to different kinds of car buyers and enthusiasts. And to tap into the growing demand of the market, more carmakers have decided to join the bandwagon and design more electric cars that are sure to thrill and impress car buyers. There are more than 30 models of electric cars in the market sold in different marks including the United States, Japan and European countries, paced by top manufacturers like Nissan, Toyota and the high-end Tesla. All EVs in the market promise the same thing- efficiency, longer range and performance- but only a few can be considered as the leaders in its class. To stir the debate once more, we will throw in a list of the top 5 electric cars in the market right now. Agree or disagree, why not add a comment or two below!

1. Tesla Model S

Tesla Model S
When electric cars started to gain traction once again in the 1990s, many car buyers and industry observers pointed at the potential limited range. There were also concerns about the charging stations in case car owners decide on a family road trip. These concerns allow others to put in the backburner their plans to order an electric car. But with the introduction of the Tesla Model S, concerns about EV range changed. As a high-performance luxury sedan from Tesla, the Model S has a range of 265 miles based on the official estimate of the US EPA, based on the 85 kWh battery pack. The same Tesla Model S has 95 city and 106 highway rating for mpg, making the Tesla Model S one of the more efficient cars in the market. And to sweeten the deal for car buyers and enthusiasts who will make the switch to a Tesla EV, the car can be charged for free at any Tesla charging station across the United States. Currently, there are more than 400 Tesla charging stations that are ready for use. It is also one of the safest cars to own today thanks to a perfect 5 rating from NHTSA. This is one of the best electric cars to own but you need to be serious if you want to own one- the Model currently ranges from $71,000 to $106,000 for the high-end Tesla Model S.
