If you are looking to switch to electric vehicles but prefer a Crossover, the market is full of options for you to choose from. They are easy to drive and maintain, cost less to refuel, and do not produce carbon emissions that pollute the environment. To help you pick, I have selected five of the best electric Crossovers that you can buy today.
The ID.4 is Volkswagen’s stab at an electric car for the US market. It was the first to be built on a dedicated EV platform, and it shows in the performance because it doesn’t have to make any of the compromises you get when manufacturers that simply slap a battery pack and electric motors unto their existing ICE vehicle models.
You will enjoy the roomy and quiet cabin with the generous cargo capacity. The ID.4 can comfortably sit 5 passengers, comes at 3 trim levels, and lasts about 250 miles between charges.
Prices start from about $41,000.
Tesla Model Y
The Tesla Model Y needs no introduction, as the Tesla brand name is synonymous with quality. Tesla has ruled the EV market for the past decade, and this model is a testament to why they will continue to rule the market for the foreseeable future.
This car seats 5 people comfortably or 7 if the third row is included. It comes in two trims; Long Range and Performance. The former gets a 318 miles driving range while the latter manages 303 miles but is faster. The operation of the car centers around the large touch-enabled screen as is the case with all Tesla vehicles.
Prices start from about $57,000.
Ford Mustang Mach-E
It is great to see a legacy automaker focusing on zero-emission cars, so we are happy to see the Mustang Mach-E. Although borrowing it’s name from the iconic ICE version, that is where the similarities end. The Mach-E was built form the ground up to be proudly electric. The muscular styling pairs well with the powertrain that offers fast performance and up to 300 miles of driving range. There is a GT version that takes the Mach-E’s performance even higher. Furthermore, the inside is very comfortable with a 10-speaker premium audio system.
Prices start from about $45,000.
Volvo XC40 Recharge
Volvo is known for its minimal Nordic style and safety features. The XC40 Recharge does not disappoint. It also offers power, with the powertrain serving up 402 hp. Where you might wish for more is in the range because it is barely above 208 miles. But if that does not bother you, any of the trims of this 5-seater will serve you perfectly. Now it is important to point out that the XC40 Recharge is based on the XC40 which is an ICE vehicle, and thus is not a purely electric vehicle from its inception. Therefore expect come compromises.
The Volvo XC40 Recharge starts at $52,795.
2022 Jaguar I-PACE
This luxury electric Crossover seats 5 comfortable but only comes in one trim. The range comes in at 222 miles, more than enough if you do not plan to embark on longer trips. The British car uses a twin-electric motor system that produces 394 hp. Jaguar has packed the I-PACE with impressive techs, including a nice infotainment system, park assists, multiple sensors, etc.
The Jaguar I-Pace starts at around $71,000.
