Need help choosing the right EV? Take a look.
Electric cars are the future and the future is now. And far from just being a trendy alternative form of propulsion, electric cars now come in all shapes and sizes and with the ability to provide all kinds of driving experiences to suit your needs. Fun city runabouts, comfortable sedans, performance cars, luxury cars, and everything in between—there's electric car options in every corner of the market, more widely available and easier to charge than ever.
With such a vast selection though, it can be a bit tricky to find the right electric car for you. No worries, we've got you covered with our handy list of the best electric cars for 2019. We’ve compiled a list of the 10 best electric cars for 2019 based on CarMax vehicle and sales data from November 1, 2018 through April 30, 2019. You'll notice we've included three Tesla models on our list. While these vehicles were top-sellers, CarMax no longer sells Teslas.
Despite the new contenders, the Nissan LEAF once again tops our best-selling list. The BMW i3 jumps up one spot above the Mercedes-Benz B-Class, thanks in large part to its funky interior layout and emphasis on performance. Both the BMW and the Mercedes-Benz feature plenty of cargo space and comfortable, satisfying handling, so you won't go wrong with either EV.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV jumps up all the way from seven to four on our list, and it's not hard to see why: a peppy engine, big touchscreen interface, and an overall enjoyable driving experience is an appealing combination. The Ford Focus Electric stays in the fifth spot, continuing to offer a more conventional driving experience in terms of styling and interior layout.
The Chevy Spark EV manages to pack all the comfort and nippy handling of much bigger EVs into a small package that is tailor-made for tight city driving. If you're a green-conscious shopper, there's definitely a used EV out there with your name on it!
