These EVs are in charge.
Sometimes it’s tough to decide which EV is the best EV for you. So let’s take a look at what other people have decided to buy. The following list represents the top plug-in cars purchased in July of 2016. Three of the five are actually full Electric Vehicles, not gasoline-electric hybrids.
#5 The Nissan Leaf
Sorry Leaf, The Tesla has taken you down in terms of sales figures. Nothing wrong with 5th place (1,063 cars delivered in July). The Leaf has been around for a while and consumers might be on the hunt for something new. Can you say Chevy Bolt?
#4 Ford Fusion Energi
The Fusion Energi is a plug-in hybrid that has an all-electric range of only 21 miles. But that doesn’t seem to have turned off buyers from buying large amounts of this semi-green-sedan (1,341 cars delivered in July).
#3 BMW i3
Number 3 for the i3 is not too shabby (1,479 cars delivered in July) considering initial sales of the Ultimate Green Machine were sluggish. Is it a full EV? Yes and No. An optional gas engine extends its range to 150 miles.
#2 Tesla Model S
The Tesla Model S continues to astound. From a performance, safety, range and sales perspective (2,150 cars delivered in July). So far, no other car can touch this car in terms of range with some versions of the Model S achieving over 300 miles on a single charge.
#1 The Chevy Volt
The Chevy Volt is clearly in charge. It is the best-selling plug-in vehicle of all time in America (2,406 cars delivered in July). Why? Might have something to do with its all-electric range of 53-miles which is a lot more than the average commute.
