Best Electric Cars 2014
Even though trucks and midsize sedans (especially entry-level luxury midsize sedans from companies like Audi, BMW, and Mercedes) are dominating the sales numbers in the vehicle industry. They have been for decades (and probably will for decades to come) more and more people are starting to jump headfirst into the world of electric cars.
There are a lot of reasons that this is happening. Though one of them is because there is no shortage of contenders for the title of “best electric cars 2014”.
Companies like Honda, Toyota, Chevy, and Tesla have been making some incredible vehicles for now. By 2014 is really starting to shape up as the “year of the electric automobile”.
Here are the cars that we think make up the list of the best electric cars 2014 has to offer!
Toyota Prius | 9/10
When people think of the best electric cars 2014 has to offer. (Or the most popular electric cars in human history). They almost always think of the Toyota Prius.
The first real electric car that captured the public’s attention more than 14 years ago. There are hundreds of thousands of these cars out there on the road today. With many of the original models from that first product run join the road each and every day across the country.
The latest generation Prius is definitely the best they’ve ever made. It combines new electric technology with some pretty killer luxury features. That make it a must-have if you’re looking for this kind of car.
Toyota Camry Hybrid | 8.5/10
Unsurprisingly to most, Toyota is definitely the leader in the world of electric cars today – at least those for the mass market.
The new Camry hybrid is one of the best electric cars 2014 has to offer, mostly because it doesn’t have the same kind of futuristic or aggressive styling that the Prius brings to the table but rather hides its electric drivetrain in a pretty standard looking Camry.
You’d never be able to tell the difference between a traditional Camry and a hybrid if you didn’t know exactly what you’re looking for.
Or you noticed how much more money you were saving on gas!
Tesla Model S | 8.9/10
As you can see, we ranked the new Tesla electric car at 8.9 out of 10 – just a 10th of a percentage point beneath the Toyota Prius, and that’s only because this is a little bit more of a niche vehicle.
One of the most beautiful and well-designed electric cars on the face of the earth, and hopefully what electric cars look like in the not so distant future, Tesla is an incredible automobile manufacturer that is serious about blending power, performance, luxury, and price with forward thinking electric technology – and the Model S represents all of that perfectly.
Though it might not be the very best electric cars 2014 decision you can make today, if you’re not wild about the Prius and want something a little bit sportier, a little bit more cutting-edge, and something that will really turn some heads, Tesla is the way to go.
