Even with the roadblocks, one-third of all American drivers are considering buying an electric vehicle in 2023. As with any emerging technology, there’s a wide range of uncertainties, like reliability, accessibility, and availability. If you are committed to going electric, and if you can afford it, here is a list of the best EVs to choose from in 2023.

  • 2023 Tesla Model 3
  • MSRP: $46,990 – $62,990
  • Range: 272 miles
  • Fast charging (adding 200 miles in 20-30 minutes)

The Tesla Model 3 has swift acceleration and remarkably agile handling. The front seats are comfortable, but the ride is a little stiff and choppy. And the Tesla Supercharger network makes cross-country travel hassle-free. Tesla’s charges are very reliable, with 1,500 locations in all 50 states.

  • 2023 Tesla Model Y Long Range
  • MSRP:  $65,990+
  • Range: 330 miles
  • Fast charging (adding 200 miles in 20-30 minutes)

The Tesla Model Y is the larger, more family-friendly version of the Tesla 3. It is also the best-selling EV in America. According to yaa.com, the Model Y has a spacious interior, with excellent handling and performance. Plus, it offers easy public charging and has a great driving range.

  • 2023 Hyundai IONIQ 5 SEL
  • MSRP:  $65,990+
  • Range: 330 miles
  • Fast charging (adding 200 miles in 20-30 minutes)

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 EV has a cool-looking futuristic style with an appealing combination of price, power, driving range, and quick-charging capability. It has a comfortable interior with plenty of room. It is Car & Driver’s favorite EV for 2023 and Motor Trend’s 2023 SUV of the Year. However, the wait time can be frustrating, sometimes up to 18 to 24 months.

  • 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 Pro
  • Price: $42,495
  • Range: 275 miles
  • Fast charging: Add 190 miles of range in 28 minutes

The Volkswagen ID.4 rides like a luxury crossover and has plenty of acceleration. It is stylish, with superb performance and functionality. The VW ID.4 is the least sporty of the bunch, but it’s also the least expensive.

  • 2023 GMC Hummer EV
  • Price: $108.000- $120,000 (before markups of up to $100,000)
  • Range: 329 miles

The 2023 Hummer EV has power, maneuverability, and impressive performance – delivering 0-60 mph in about 3 seconds – but at what price? It costs $100 to charge (because of the huge 212-kilowatt-hour battery pack), it weighs 9000 pounds (twice the weight of an F-150) and it has an MSRP of $108,000 – and that’s before dealer markups.

  • Mazda MX30
  • MSRP: $34,000
  • Range: 100 miles

Mazda has hit a lot of home runs over the years, but they struck out with this one. The MX30 barely delivers 100 miles on a charge and has a slow charging time of over one hour.

  • 2023 Polestar 3
  • MSRP: $84,000
  • Range: 300 miles

Polestar 3 received a very low score on Consumer Report’s road test. It has a stiff ride and confusing controls. Getting in and out of the back seat is difficult due to the roofline and narrow door opening. Plus, it took more than 10 hours to charge on a 240-volt connection. There are better alternatives if you’re in the market for a luxury EV.
