EV Cars and Driver

EV cars are a great way to go if you want to cut down on your gas bills. You can also find a lot of different options out there if you are looking for a new car. You can get an electric car that is designed with style and is easy to drive, or you can get an option that is more rugged and is designed to withstand more of the elements.

Ford Mustang Mach-E

EV enthusiasts will want to check out the Ford Mustang Mach-E EV car and driver. The new all-electric vehicle offers a unique driving experience, featuring a quiet, comfortable cabin, and the ability to use more than 4,000 public charging stations throughout the United States.

The Mach-E’s cabin combines a modern minimalist EV with a nostalgic Ford Mustang interior. The interior features a 10.2-inch screen behind the steering wheel that displays driving information in an uncluttered fashion. The cabin also features a wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration system.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is built on the Global Electrified 1 (GE1) platform. It’s been heavily reworked from the previous C2 platform. The new all-electric architecture is designed to seat five adults comfortably and maximize SUV space for cargo.

Hyundai Ioniq 5

Designed on a dedicated electric vehicle platform, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a high-end EV with impressive driving dynamics. It also comes with a range of innovative infotainment features. For instance, the IONIQ 5 has an infotainment screen that runs Hyundai telematics and offers a variety of advanced voice-recognition technologies.

While the Ioniq’s 58.0-kilowatt-hour battery pack isn’t going to win any awards for its capacity, the EPA estimates that it can provide a 256-mile range in all-wheel drive vehicles. It’s also capable of a 303-mile range with rear-wheel drive. That’s still plenty of range to handle most commutes.

The IONIQ 5’s interior is spacious and comfortable. The dashboard is split into two sections, and features a pair of 12.3-inch touchscreens that act as the entertainment hub. It also features a digital instrument cluster and HVAC controls.

Volkswagen e-Golf

Whether you are looking for a fun and practical car, or a cleaner way to get from A to B, the Volkswagen e-Golf may be a good choice for you. The electric car boasts a sporty and modern look, as well as great driving characteristics.

Volkswagen offers two different powertrain options, a 134-horsepower electric motor and a diesel engine. Both are paired with a 9.2-inch widescreen infotainment system. It also comes with a heated windscreen and dual-zone climate control. You can also select a 7.2 kW on-board charger. Depending on the battery size, you’ll be able to recharge it in four to seven hours.

The interior of the Golf e-Golf is a high-quality, spacious space. The interior design reflects the Volkswagen design philosophy of ‘openness’. It uses clean straight lines and soft-touch materials in the right places.

Hyundai Kona Electric

Those looking for an affordable electric car and driver will find the Hyundai Kona Electric to be a great choice. The car is available in four trims, and is powered by a 276-hp electric motor. This motor pairs with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It offers 258 miles of range and a price starting at $33,550 before state incentives.

The Kona Electric comes with a number of standard safety features, including automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-centering, a rear cross-traffic alert, and a forward-collision warning with automatic braking. It also comes with a 7.2-kW onboard charger and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Hyundai Kona Electric’s 201-hp electric motor gives it good passing power. It also offers decent acceleration. Its 291 lb-ft of torque is a little less than the 301-hp Hyundai Bolt, but it’s more than enough to get the vehicle to its destination.

Detroit Electric car history

Among the most well known of electric car companies is Detroit Electric. It began production in 1907 and ran until 1939. Its last car was shipped on February 23, 1939.

Moreover, the vehicle could travel 80 miles between charges, a feat not easily achieved by other electric cars of the era.

The Detroit Electric also had a distinctive tall upright design. It featured battery packs in the front and rear. It had a top speed of 25 miles per hour. Moreover, the company was also known for its unique control units under the passenger cabin.
