Best Electric Cars for 2020

From 2008, a renaissance in electric vehicle manufacturing occurred due to advances in batteries, and the desire to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve urban air quality.

Tesla Model 3 was the world's best selling EV from 2018 to 2019 and had a maximum electric range of 500 km (310 miles) according to the EPA. It’s ahead of the competition in terms of powertrain technology, infotainment technology, and semi-autonomous driving features.
