The Best Electric Cars of 2022

Electric cars have taken the world by storm. More and more people are ditching their gas-guzzling cars in favor of electric vehicles (EVs). And it’s not just because they’re better for the environment.

EVs are cheaper to operate and maintain than traditional gasoline cars, and they’re often faster and more fun to drive.
So, which electric cars should you be keeping an eye on? Here are some of the best EVs scheduled to hit showrooms in the next few years.

1. The 2022 Tesla Model S

The Tesla Model S has been completely redesigned for 2022. It’s now available in four different versions: the Long Range Plus, the performance, the Plaid, and the Plaid+. The Long Range Plus can go 402 miles on a single charge, while the performance can do 0-60 mph in just two seconds. The Plaid and Plaid+ have even more range and performance, respectively. All four versions come with an all-wheel drive and an adaptive air suspension.

2. Mercedes Benz EQS

The EQS combines all of the benefits inherent in an EV – smoothness, peace, ease of operation, and elegant body packaging – with everything Mercedes has learned throughout decades of creating opulent plutocrat barges.

It’s a lovely car to travel in, drive, or be in. It’s almost flawless and is delicately strewn with details.
The EQS is limited to 200kW of power, which is slower than the Audi e-Tron GT, Porsche Taycan, and Tesla family.
Even so, the EQS can be recharged in just half an hour using a 350kW rapid charger or two hours on a typical 50kW charging station.

3. Jaguar I-Pace

Although it takes away a lot of the fun we get from gearboxes and engines, it’s exciting in a new and different way. It’s also roomy, quiet, comfortable, and well-made.
The I-Pace won’t be for everyone, but credit to Jaguar for producing a vehicle that boldly ventures into the unknown while still showing those pesky Germans how it’s done.
A 7kW home wall box can supply 22 miles per hour of charge from the I-Pace. But you plug it in overnight and let it do its thing. What matters is how fast the I-PACE can charge away from home, and the competition is closing in.
But, this car’s capacity to recharge is limited. It takes around 45 minutes to charge the battery at a rate of 100kW on a DC charger and 5-80 percent in about 45 minutes with a DC quick charger. The Porsche Taycan, Tesla Model S, and others can charge in less than half that time.

4. Kia EV6

The EV6 shows that being forward-thinking need not be entirely unusual. The EV6 is distinctive while still unlikely to fall off a fashion cliff, and it’s fun to drive without being overly powerful. It follows a considerably distinct path dynamically from the Hyundai Ioniq 5, with which it shares bones and blood, despite having many of the same characteristics as its competitors.
That’s not necessarily a negative thing. It’s also spacious, quiet, and competent. This is a well-judged, rounded, interesting, and satisfying vehicle from Kia.


Good things are already here in 2022 for electric car enthusiasts. There’s a lot to be excited about with better cars, more affordable prices, and a continued push for infrastructure. Are you ready to make the switch?
