Editor’s Note: We’re lucky to have a wide range of electric car models already on the market. But even so, a few cars stand out for their competitiveness at certain price points. To me, those few cars are the Nissan Leaf (affordable), BMW i3 (a bit less affordable), and Tesla Model S (unaffordable for most people). Of course, with certain unique preferences or a need for an affordable car with a range extender, the story may be different, but these three above stand out as leading the pack in general.

    i think you are missing the boat for a lot of us by not including the Chevy Volt in this list. Neither a leaf not Tesla meets my needs but the Volt does. all 4 are great electric cars.

    This is your quoted remark: “But even so, a few cars stand out for their competitiveness at certain price points. To me, those few cars are the Nissan Leaf (affordable), BMW i3 (a bit less affordable), and Tesla Model S (unaffordable for most people).
