The best electric cars of 2021

With GM joining the race to electrification, the writing is on the gas pump: Electric vehicles are the future. And while GM is the first of the big 3 to promise (well, aspire to) to sell only zero-emission vehicles by 2035, Tesla has been impressing buyers with EV performance for years. Meanwhile, California has already pledged to ban sales of new gasoline powered vehicles by 2035, joining countries such as France, Norway, and Germany that have announced similar plans to eliminate ICE (internal combustion engine) vehicles.

Fortunately for us, there are a lot more EVs for us to choose from now. There are electric luxury sedans, exotic supercars, compact commuters, and even pickup trucks coming this year. Tesla’s finally got some serious competition. Moreover, home charging stations have dropped in price from thousands of dollars to do-it-yourself models costing $600. It all represents solid progress on the electrification front. In fact, as a sign of how far electric vehicle technology has progressed, all but two of the models in this years best-of list are pure electrics or BEVs, battery electric vehicles.
