Check out the growing list of cars powered by electricity! A few years ago, you could count the number of available plug-in cars on one hand, with a couple fingers left over. Today, there are nearly 20 models offered from more than a dozen different brands—in a range of sizes, styles, price points and powertrains to suit a wide range of consumers. (Okay, other models have been discontinued, failing to emerge from concepts.) But EVs are here to stay. The cars on this list all offer the sweet speedy-but-silent driving experience only available from battery-to-motor power. Which one of the following plug-in models has your name on it?
Electric Vehicle Sedan
This small Mercedes electric car directly competes with the BMW i3. Its powertrain is provided by Tesla Motors, but engineers turned it into a comfortable and relaxed commuter car. If driven with care, the well-appointed B-Class could offer around 100 miles of range from a battery pack capable of holding 31.5 kilowatt-hours of juice.
