Electric vehicles for Earth Day
Though electric vehicles only account for a small portion of the automotive market, their numbers and appeal are quickly expanding. Spurred on by the success of Tesla and imminent efficiency regulations, automakers are churning out new EVs at an increasingly rapid rate while making big advancements in battery range, safety features, and technology. Yes, it’s a promising sign for the future, but consumers today already have a bevy of solid electric options that fit a variety of lifestyles, and they go faster and farther than ever before.
The popularity of electric vehicles continues to surge on Turo as well — EVs now make up 6.78% of the Turo vehicle supply, and that number has been growing steadily over the years.
Right now you can find nearly all EVs currently on sale in North America on Turo. We’ve rounded them all up for you here, grouped them according to base MSRP, and arranged them in order of each car’s maximum range when equipped with the biggest battery option.
Take a cruise through every EV offering on the marketplace — you may be surprised at the breadth of choices out there. And remember to use the Green Vehicles filter to find EVs and hybrid cars on Turo the next time you’re interested in sampling the electric lifestyle, and get behind the wheel feeling lighter, brighter, and greener, since starting today, Turo will be offsetting an estimated 100% of its global carbon emissions by investing in verified emission reduction projects.
Small crossovers are all the rage with car buyers these days, so many of the new EVs in this group — models that start between 30 and 45 grand — come in that shape. But in most respects, the Tesla Model 3 is still the class of the whole segment when you consider the range (up to 353 miles), performance, and the perk of the Tesla supercharger network.
Compacts like the Nissan LEAF, Chevy Bolt, and BMW i3 have been around for some years now and remain solid options for commuting or cruising around town. Then there’s the Ford Mustang Mach-E, a competent all-arounder with a healthy range and a familiar badge. Though there’s mixed feelings on the name of Ford’s new electric crossover, it’s been one of the most hotly anticipated battery-powered cars and we’ll surely be seeing it all over the roads in coming years.

Among the EVs that start at around $60,000 or higher at the dealership, there are a few exciting new entrants. The Polestar 2 is a handsome do-it-all sedan that offers a tempting alternative to Tesla. Though it competes most directly with the Model 3, it comes with a heftier price tag. The Audi e-tron is Audi’s first foray into EVs, and a strong preview of their upcoming e-tron models like the recently unveiled e-tron GT and Q4 e-tron.
The Model S and Model X… well you know about those. Both of the biggest Teslas are still hugely impressive cars with the longest maximum ranges of any EVs — up to 402 miles for the Model S Long Range Plus. But if you’ve got the coin and want something from a premium German brand, you’ll want to look at the Porsche Taycan. Launched last year, Porsche’s first-ever EV is an exciting and exclusive sedan that sets the tone for all future electric performance vehicles. It doesn’t go as far as the Teslas, but it excels in every other category, just as you’d expect from a car bearing the Porsche badge.
