Electric cars are becoming a familiar sight every day now. From dedicated electric cars like the BMW i3, Nissan Leaf or the powerful Tesla Model S to electrified vehicles based on normal cars like the Volkswagen e-Golf or Kia Soul EV we can now find stuff that suits every style. But what are the best electric cars available in the US?
Kia Soul EV
Kia Soul EV has a funky look and an electric heart. It keeps the utility of the gas-powered Soul, but adds a ton of tech features to please the geekiest of us. Soul EV relies on a 109 hp electric engine and a lithium-ion battery that delivers a 93 miles range. A full charge takes about 4-5 hours on a 240 volt system.
