With California gas prices consistently high, we are seeing electric vehicle options being offered on an increasing number of models.

As technology advances, electric vehicle ranges continue to improve and are now able to compete with the likes of Tesla.

At Cartelligent, we help thousands of people each year decide which vehicle will work best for them. Today, we'll be covering the top 5 highest ranged electric vehicles under $50,000.



5. Hyundai Ioniq (124-mile range)

Why we love it: The Hyundai Ioniq is available in 3 different models: standard hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electric. The electric model offers 124 miles of range which should be plenty for daily driving around town. This vehicle comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a rearview camera, and a 7" touchscreen display. Starting MSRP is $29,815.



4. Nissan LEAF (151-mile range)

Why we love it: The Nissan LEAF hit the market a few years ago with an affordable electric option that offered around 75 miles of range. The latest model has been increased significantly and now allows for up to 151 miles on a single charge. This vehicle offers single pedal driving as standard and allows for some safety options that include automatic braking and adaptive cruise control. Starting MSRP is $29.900.



3. BMW i3 (153-mile range)

Why we love it: The 2019 BMW i3 boasts an increase of 39 miles of range from the 2018 model year and the luxury styling and amenities you expect from a BMW. The body of the i3 is constructed of carbon fiber to compensate for the battery weight which leads to an agile driving experience. Starting MSRP is $44,450.



2. Tesla Model 3 (220-mile Range)

Why we love it: It would be unfair to discuss electric vehicles without mentioning Tesla. The Model 3 was released as a lower price point entry compared to Tesla's other models. With a 220 mile range, you have the ability to take the vehicle further than simply around town. Starting MSRP is $49,900, but inventory remains low at the time of writing.



1. Chevrolet Bolt (238-mile range)

Why we love it: The Chevy Bolt has been around for a few years now and has consistently been a reliable choice for a high range electric vehicle. They come standard with Chevrolet's MyLink system that includes a 10' touchscreen display. This vehicle offers safety upgrades that include automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, and lane keep assist. Starting MSRP is $36,620.
