My 2013 Ford C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid has a relatively small 7.6 kilowatt-hour battery. Because I take mostly short trips, the C-Max’s 20 miles of all-electric range—and access to a plug in my garage—means I only have to gas up about once a month. I thoroughly enjoy spacing out those refueling stops as much as possible. Thankfully, there are new solutions for reducing the charging time without springing for a Level 2 charging station.

We are approaching the tenth anniversary of the so-called modern electric car. The first sales of the Nissan LEAF, which at the time offered 84 miles on a single charge, were made in December 2009. A decade later, the LEAF goes nearly three times as far for about the same price. But EV sales still represent less than 2 percent of total vehicle sales in the United States.

What’s it going to take for everyday consumers to shift from gas to electric? Price parity with gas cars? Eliminating range concerns? If the answers are yes and yes, then we don’t have to wait another day. There are three highly capable, long-range plug-in hybrids available for less than $30,000.
