America’s electric vehicle (EV) market has surged over the last decade, and it’s only expected to grow further.

As of February 2022. *Indicates EPA data on fuel economy and range was only available for 2021 models.

At less than $30,000, the Nissan Leaf and Mini Cooper SE are currently the most affordable options for Americans.

Released in 2010, the Nissan Leaf is one of the oldest EVs on the market. Widely considered a pioneer in the EV space, it’s one of the top-selling electric cars in the U.S.—in 2021, more than 14,000 cars were sold in America.

While the Leaf’s low price point may be appealing to many, it has the third shortest maximum range on the list at 149 miles before needing a recharge. The only other cars with shorter ranges were the Mini Cooper SE and the Mazda MX-30.

GMC’s Hummer EV pickup is the most expensive EV on the list, with a base price point of $110,295—however, GMC is planning to release less expensive versions of the Hummer EV over the coming years.

The only other EV pickup available in the U.S. market in early 2022 is Rivian’s R1T. However, more manufacturers like Ford and Chevrolet are planning to release their own EV pickups, and Tesla’s Cybertruck has been in the works for years.

The Top EV Manufacturers

There are a number of domestic and international manufacturers that sell EVs in America, including German manufacturer Audi, Swedish carmaker Volvo, and South Korean manufacturer Kia.

Here’s a breakdown of the 18 different manufacturers on the list, six of which are U.S. based:

Manufacturer Country of HQ # EVs sold in the U.S.
Tesla 🇺🇸 U.S. 4
Audi 🇩🇪 Germany 3
Volvo 🇸🇪 Sweden 2
Rivian 🇺🇸 U.S. 2
Kia 🇰🇷 South Korea 2
Hyundai 🇰🇷 South Korea 2
Chevrolet 🇺🇸 U.S. 2
Volkswagen 🇩🇪 Germany 1
Porsche 🇩🇪 Germany 1
Polestar 🇸🇪 Sweden 1
Nissan 🇯🇵 Japan 1
Mini Cooper 🇩🇪 German 1
Mercedes 🇩🇪 German 1
Mazda 🇯🇵 Japan 1
Lucid 🇺🇸 U.S. 1
Jaguar 🇬🇧 UK 1
GMC 🇺🇸 U.S. 1
Ford 🇺🇸 U.S. 1

Tesla has the highest number of EV models on the market, with four different vehicles available: the Model S, Model X, Model Y, and the Model 3. It’s one of the few manufacturers on the list that exclusively makes electric cars—the only others being Rivian and Lucid.

While anticipation has been building around Tesla’s Cybertruck, and murmurs of a cheaper Tesla have been circulating, Tesla’ CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that there will be no new Tesla models released in 2022. The company will instead focus on its existing models for the time being.

Are U.S. Consumers Ready to Transition to Electric Cars?

It’s important to note that, while EV adoption in America has increased over the years, the U.S. is still lagging behind other countries. Between 2015 and 2020, America’s EV fleet grew at an annual rate of 28{09e594db938380acbda72fd0ffbcd1ef1c99380160786adb3aba3c50c4545157}, while China’s grew by 51{09e594db938380acbda72fd0ffbcd1ef1c99380160786adb3aba3c50c4545157}, and Europe increased by 41{09e594db938380acbda72fd0ffbcd1ef1c99380160786adb3aba3c50c4545157}.

Why are so many Americans dragging their feet when it comes to electric cars? According to a survey by Pew Research Center, the cost is a big barrier, as well as concerns over their reliability compared to gas vehicles.

But with gas prices at all-time highs, and as consumers grow increasingly concerned over the carbon costs of gas vehicles, switching to an electric car may soon be too hard to resist.
