Best Electric Vehicles for 2022


Electric Cars

2021 Chevrolet Bolt

The 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV is a good car. Compared to other models in the electric car class, it has a long driving range and a spacious cargo hold, as well as a potent powertrain. It’s fun to drive too.2022 Nissan Leaf

The 2022 Nissan Leaf is a fine choice for budget-minded EV shoppers thanks to its below-average starting price, long standard features list, and quick acceleration. Still, it doesn’t fare very well in the electric car class in part because of its short driving range, low-grade cabin materials, and rear seats that don’t fold flat.

2022 MINI Electric Hardtop

The 2022 Mini Electric Hardtop has an energetic powertrain and handles better than most rivals, making it more enjoyable to drive than the vast majority of its competitors in the electric car class. It has a stylish interior as well, though it’s not as spacious as many competitors. The big issue with this Mini is its below-average drive range.

Luxury Electric Cars

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS

Simply put, the brand-new 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS is one of the best luxury electric cars around. It combines the performance aspects EV drivers expect – swift acceleration and lengthy driving range estimates – with the upscale features and ample technology that are hallmarks of Mercedes.

2022 Lucid Air

The all-new Lucid Air is the first luxury electric car with a driving range that tops the benchmark Tesla Model S. That’s remarkable on its own, but there’s more to the Air than just its efficiency. It’s beautifully trimmed, comfortable yet rewarding to drive, and packed with advanced tech and safety features.

2022 Tesla Model S

The 2022 Tesla Model S delivers breathtaking acceleration, engaging driving dynamics, and fantastic fuel economy estimates. It also has ample room for people and cargo, as well as a longer driving range than most other EVs. It’s easy to see why the Model S sits near the top of our luxury electric car rankings.

Electric SUVs

2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5

The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 is an all-new EV that aims to be the benchmark that other electric SUVs will be compared to. It just might succeed, as it impresses on nearly every front. The Ioniq 5 is quick, agile, comfortable, and spacious.

2022 Kia EV6

The 2022 Kia EV6 is the latest addition to the growing electric SUV segment, and it looks poised to become one of its bestsellers, thanks in part to its value and performance. The EV6 can go more than 300 miles before needing a charge, and that long-leggedness doesn’t temper its fun-to-drive handling or enthusiastic acceleration. The interior is comfy and nicely trimmed, and a vast array of safety and convenience features are standard.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E

The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E is the best electric SUV that isn’t a Tesla, and that’s no faint praise. The Mach-E blends a lengthy all-electric driving range with swift acceleration and polished handling, and it tops it off with a roomy and upscale interior, a sleek infotainment system, and a wealth of active safety features. The only thing holding the Mach-E back is a below-average predicted reliability score.

Luxury Electric SUVs

2022 BMW iX

The all-new 2022 BMW iX rolled off the factory floor and straight into one of the top spots in our luxury electric SUV rankings. The iX delivers on all fronts: It’s fast, comfortable, spacious, and well-built. It has impressive range (up to 300 miles) for an electric SUV, and it comes loaded with intuitive tech features.

2022 Tesla Model X

The 2022 Tesla Model X impresses for a lot of reasons, and despite growing competition, it’s still one of the most head-turning EVs on the road. Few other luxury electric SUVs can match its blistering acceleration, cargo space, and technology. However, a high base price and subpar cabin quality for your money may give you pause.

2022 Tesla Model Y

The Tesla Model Y may not be the clear frontrunner that it once was in the luxury electric SUV class, but it’s still a standout pick. The Model Y offers a lengthy driving range, searing acceleration, semi-autonomous driving technology, and great people-hauling and cargo-carrying ability. A smoother ride, lower price, or easier-to-use infotainment system would go a long way toward putting the Model Y back on top.
