ULTRA URBAN DRIVER: Pure EV - Sub-compact/compact
Living in a big city? You might be in an ideal position to own an electric car. Charging stations are probably pretty concentrated in your area, which helps address one of the biggest setbacks associated with EV ownership.
Range limitations will keep you relatively close to home, but depending on where you live, there can be generous tax incentives to going electric.
There are plenty of choices for the urban driver too, so if you frequently carry a few passengers or cargo with you, an ideal choice is a four-seater hatchback like the Ford Focus Electric, which gets up to 76 miles on a single charge, or the Nissan Leaf which goes as much as 75 miles. The Honda Fit EV is a good choice too, since it’s a bit smaller and can travel up to 82 miles but still retains its four doors.
