Electric cars may be relatively few in number, but you still have plenty to pick from—including more affordable options. Here we provide a list of the latest all electric vehicles you can buy. The list would be much longer if we included plug-in hybrid EVs (PHEV), but we will leave that for another article.

Of course, Tesla is on the list. Toyota is not, however, as its offerings only include PHEV cars at this point. Typically, the cars are four-seaters but the tiny two-seat Smart ED has been included here. All of the vehicles have a range over 50 miles with most hitting 100 miles and a number over 200 miles on a single charge.
The tradeoff between EVs and PHEVs tends to be all-electric miles (usually lower for PHEVs) and the ability to continue on using a gas engine. Almost any EV will handle the average daily commute, which is under 30 miles round-trip. Many are surprisingly affordable, at around $30,000. Of course, there are those that break the $100,000 mark. The crop of 2018 EVs will likely increase the size of this list.
