2. Range

After this you should focus on the driving range of the vehicle. If you want to use the vehicle everyday within the city, then you can opt for smaller electric vehicles with less driving range. This is because you can charge the vehicle at home. On the other hand, if there is a purpose for making long journeys, then the person will have to take an electric vehicle which has a long range. Usually such vehicles are expensive.

3. Vehicle Type

Compact SUVs cost more than compact sedans and then there are crossovers. There are also premium electric vehicles that cost a lot more than traditional electric vehicles. However, they also offer greater driving range.

4. Maintenance Attention
