An Electric Vehicle For Every Type of Lifestyle
According to Wired, automakers can make and sell electric vehicles (EVs) off Tesla's "cultural cache." I agree as well that EVs are en vogue lately thanks to Tesla.
But what if you don't want a Tesla (no shade), and want an all-electric vehicle? There are a few options that can easily fit into your budget or style; and since the average American drives, 37 miles per day any of the below options can cover your daily commute.
