Experts of InsideEVs have ranked the TOP 5 Best Electric Cars for 2018, in their opinion. They selected from all-electric vehicles of the 2018 model year which are on sale in the US market.

The choice is based on such features as each model’s equivalent fuel economy (MPGe), driving range, availability, projected reliability, overall performance, utility, styling and, of course, the price.
