The Top Electric Cars in 2024
A Faster Drive is in Your Future
There is no denying that the push toward reduced reliance on fossil fuels is in full swing. Several huge steps have been taken to advance electric vehicle technology in recent years. Every year we see many great hybrid and fully electric vehicles introduced that are becoming more affordable and practical for the modern consumer.
This year, more than a handful of hybrid and electric vehicles are slated to hit the market. That means that you are going to have a considerable number of choices if you are one of many drivers looking to finally make the switch. You will be able to find the upcoming fastest electric cars in every category and price range for 2024. It is certainly an exciting time for the future of electric vehicles.
1. Audi Q8 e-tron
The 2024 Audi Q8 e-tron certainly isn’t in everyone’s budget but it is a car that is well worth talking about. This new Audi will be for the above-average consumer with a starting price of just under $76,000. You are going to get everything you would come to expect from Audi for interior comforts and technology.
This electric vehicle comes supplied with two motors that can produce over 400hp with surprisingly smooth acceleration. Audi has upgraded to a larger 106 kWh battery for both the Q8 e-tron and e-tron Sportsback styles to give consumers a better range than in the past.
2. Canoo Lifestyle Vehicle
This next vehicle is for those people who want to defy convention and truly take a leap into the future. Canoo is known for throwing out the rules and creating modern electric vehicles that stand out. The Canoo Lifestyle Vehicle is tough to categorize as it is a mash-up of various vehicle types.
There is so much inside this vehicle that is new and re-imagined that you really would need to see one for yourself. Everything inside the vehicle screams minimalist perspective, and it is meant to be a distraction-free experience. Canoo has only been selling these as fleet vehicles to start but will be testing the consumer market with an eye-pleasing price range between $35,000 and $50,000.
3. Fiat 500e
The Fiat 500 exploded onto the scene several years ago and was an extremely popular vehicle in the segment. Fiat has decided to reintroduce the 500 series model in 2024 as an electric-only car. Drivers who are familiar with the original Fiat 500 will recognize the two-door miniature devil from a mile away.
There are no solid specs on what trim the 500e is going to come with, but those who are curious can look at the European counterpart for inspiration. The car will likely come with front-wheel drive capability and a 117hp electric motor paired with a battery that can travel roughly 200 miles per charge. Interested customers can expect the price range for the Fiat 500e to be between $30,000 and $40,000.
4. Hyundai Kona Electric
The Hyundai Kona has been on the market for many years now, and the company has decided to do a visual revamp aimed at catching more eyes. You are going to see a larger, more intimidating electric SUV in 2024. Buyers are going to have to decide on two different motors for their Kona. The standard model includes a modest 133hp electric motor, but you have the option to beef it up to one that produces over 200hp.
There are three total trim levels available for the 2024 Hyundai Kona Electric. You can expect the starting price to be between $35,000 and $45,000 depending on which one you choose. Hyundai has put a lot of effort into this next-generation Kona and even increased the mileage range to an estimated 260 miles.
5. Jeep Recon EV
The future of electric cars and vehicles has never been more exciting. Jeep has a lot of die-hard fans out there and they have all been patiently waiting to see what they do in the electric market. The all-new Jeep Recon EV looks to expand on the plug-in Wrangler model by creating a fully-electric mid-sized Jeep that has the off-road capabilities the name is synonymous with.
There aren’t a lot of specifics available for the 2024 Jeep Recon EV when it comes to the price. I checked in with my family to get some inside information on when to expect some solid stats. All I can get so far is that they are not being built until closer to the end of the year, and customers should expect at least $60,000 minimum for MSRP.
