If you care about the environment, the thought of switching to an electric vehicle (EV) may have crossed your mind. EVs are growing in popularity as they are not only better for the environment but also offer better handling, responsiveness and ride comfort. They have slowly but surely become more prominent in recent years, with more automakers offering all-electric alternatives that can drive longer distances, boasts speeds that match regular cars and, most importantly, offer a comfortable ride.
Here are four new electric cars in 2021 to put on your wishlist:
BMW marks a new milestone with its first all-electric SUV developed from scratch. By all accounts, it is impressive. It has a driving distance of 630km on a single charge, delivering 385 kW of power and a highly efficient consumption of 19.8-23.0 kWh/100 km. Top speed is 200km/h and hits the century point in five second. Its recharge speed is equally astounding: up to 150km in just 10 minutes. So impressive is it that Forbes even declared that the BMW iX "will give Tesla's Model X some real competition."
