The Top Five Electric Vehicles on the Market

We’re just one month away from our most important annual event– the SEMA show is coming up next month (November). There are a few differences to this year’s show; for one, the EVs have their very own section, the Electrified Hall. We’ll have our Switch Labs presentation at booth #24731 in the Central Hall. If you’re coming to Las Vegas for SEMA, don’t miss our presentation, which includes an opportunity to work on a real Switch Labs vehicle being assembled in front of attendees.

SHOW HOURS

Tuesday, November 1, 9:00am – 5:00pm
Wednesday, November 2, 9:00am – 5:00pm
Thursday, November 3, 9:00am – 5:00pm
Friday, November 4, 9:00am – 4:00pm

Each year, we get a first-hand look at what the industry has to offer, from the purely conceptional to the next-generation must-haves. We looked for a scaled rating on the top five current electrical vehicles on the market, and found an excellent one in the U.S. News & World Report page. 

If you’re looking to pay the pump back for the overcharging that began with the Russian invasion of the Ukraine, taking the plunge and moving to an EV is an excellent start. Here’s the 5 top-rated EVs on the market currently:

  1. 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge

Volvo’s luxury electric SUV has a lot going for it. Nimble, beautiful, and with intuitive technology, the XC40 Recharge boasts a perfect safety score, surprising acceleration, great balance. The negatives seem to be limited to a middling range and a smaller cargo hold than its class usually commands.

  1. 2022 Tesla Model S

The 2022 Tesla Model S ranks very high for its unbelievably pickup and speed, as well as its terrific range and fuel economy. However, it’s not as posh as some rivals, and there’s no Android Auto or Apple CarPlay included.

  1. 2023 BMW iX

BMW has set a new bar for luxury electric SUVs with the iX. It has all the speed, function, and luxury you’d want in an SUV and in an EV. Its only drawback is a hefty price tag.

  1. 2022 Lucid Air

The Lucid brand is an astonishing debut at #2. A sleek electric sedan with the elegance of a sports car, the Air offers roomy interior, great pickup, terrific range, and lots of trunk room. But beware of the price tag!

  1. 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS

It’s fitting that Mercedes-Benz has produced an EV at the top of the list. It’s got the things you expect in a Mercedes-Benz: the opulence, the roominess, the performance, the oomph… but it also offers an impressive driving range.

Is this the year you’ll make a switch? We hope so. It’s time to stop feeding fossil fuel companies and to begin an age of renewable energy in our commutes. All of these vehicles have great potential to take us into the 2030s with grace and substantial fuel savings. This new technology isn’t ahead of its time. It’s right on time.Our reusable EV Kit is ideal for students interested in renewable energy, advanced technology, or automobile design. The Switch Lab teaches students how to work with their hands, solve problems, learn about systems, and gain experience in cutting-edge automotive technology.
