Will they be the future of transport? Who can say for sure. What is certain is that they are a valid option for contributing to reducing the impact on global resources. Let’s discover the top 5 electric cars of 2017.

 

Electric cars have been a niche market for years, but the increasingly severe restrictions on emissions and pollution are starting to push car buyers in the direction of a sustainable vehicle. So here’s a brief look at some of the best on the market.

TESLA S

Fast, luxurious and ecological, Tesla S is the perfect combination of technology and sustainability. A full-sized 5-door liftback with variable maximum power from a minimum of 320 hp (235 kW) up to a maximum of 611 hp (449 kW). The maximum range of this 100% electric sedan reaches up to 613 km, while the list price starts at €84,600. A true dream.

Zero emissions, super silent engine and smooth acceleration. With the new B 250 e, the concept of an electric drive vehicle joins comfort and driving pleasure. The driving range with a fully charged battery is around 200 kilometers, and choosing the RANGE fitting can increase performance by another 30 kilometers, with a top speed of 160 km/h.

BMW i3

The new i3 is different from any other BMW on the market, it offers premium quality, minimum running costs and surprising rhythms. Compared to many other vehicles it is extremely light thanks to its carbon fiber and aluminum body. Its 170-hp engine and range of 370 Km make it an efficient and comfortable option.

NISSAN LEAF

Good-bye petrol and not only. With Nissan Leaf, even oil changes and overhauls become a distant memory, thanks to the absence of an endothermic engine and a traditional transmission. The Nissan Leaf still reigns as the best-selling electric car in the world, and it has been on the market since 2010.

RENAULT ZOE.
