Electric Car Price Comparison For US: Cheapest To Most Expensive – InsideEVs


In this post, we will take a look at the prices of all-electric cars available in the U.S.

As always, we will focus on the effective price, which is the MSRP plus destination charge (if known), minus the eligible federal tax credit. It’s just a starting point because in many cases customers can count on additional incentives and rebates/discounts.

We are including the federal tax credit, because it affects the entire market (also the used EVs), even if someone has no eligibility to get it. All of the Tesla and Chevrolet models are not eligible for any federal tax credit.

The list includes the latest Audi, Mazda, Lucid, Rivian, Polestar and Volvo models. Let’s get into it.

The Nissan LEAF opens the list thanks to the most recent MSRP price reduction. The entry-level version with a 40 kWh battery and 110 kW electric motor is offered at an MSRP of $27,400 (+$975 DST), which effectively is $20,875 (thanks to full $7,500 federal tax credit).

The LEAF e+ version with a 62 kWh battery and 160 kW motor is $5,000 more expensive but offers 226 miles (364 km) of EPA range. At an effective price of $25,875, the LEAF e+ is the least expensive EV with more than 200 miles of range.

Between those two is the MINI Cooper SE (effectively $23,250), but let’s be honest – it’s a niche vehicle with only 114 miles of range (183 km).

The interesting duo – Chevrolet Bolt EV/Chevrolet Bolt EUV is affected by the massive battery recall – which means that there will be less competition for the Hyundai Kona Electric at effectively $27,685. Bolt EV/EUVs even previously had a difficult situation as they were not eligible for the federal tax credit, while the Hyundai models still are.

The all-new Volkswagen ID.4 AWD Pro is the most affordable electric car with all-wheel drive. It starts effectively at $37,370 and offers 82 kWh battery, 249 miles (401 km) of range and 220 kW of system output. Enough for a 0-60 mph sprint in 5.7 seconds.

The most affordable Tesla is the Model 3 Standard Range Plus at $41,190 (there is no $7,500 federal tax credit). It has 262 miles of range (422 km).

The least expensive 300-mile BEV is the Ford Mustang Mach-E Route 1 ER RWD – effectively at $44,000. It has a big 98.8 kWh battery for 305 miles (491 km) of range. The power output is 216 kW, enough for 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds.

The first model above 350 miles is the Tesla Model 3 Long Range AWD – at effectively $51,190. It has 353 miles (568 km) of range.

Above about an effective price of $49,000, basically all of the electric cars are all-wheel drive (with exception of some Porsche Taycan versions).

The first all-electric pickup – Rivian R1T – starts at an effective price of $60,000 and offers 314 miles (505 km) of range. In the not far future, there will be a $10,000 more expensive version with 400 miles (644 km) of range! When that happens, it will be the least expensive 400-mile EV, because the Tesla Model S Long Range (AWD) 19″ with 405 miles (652 km), is effectively at $91,190.

The “Plaid” performance (0-60 mph in just over 2 seconds) starts at $131,190.

And finally, the range king (over 500 miles) – Lucid Air Grand Touring starts at an effective price of $133,000. The Dream Edition is $30,000 more expensive.
