5 cheap ways to these expensive electric cars

Electric vehicle drivers can count on great performance, but that often comes with a hefty price tag. Fortunately, there are many alternatives that have similar features, but at a lower price.

Electric cars are expensive because of the production of the electric motor. This is because engines often contain expensive materials, such as nickel and cobalt. Within the EV industry you encounter huge price differences, depending on the model, performance and the electric motor involved.


5 alternatives to very expensive electric cars

There are many electric cars that offer good performance at a low price. We offer you some of today’s most affordable EV alternatives.

#1 Mercedes-Benz AMG EQE Sedan – from 109,868 euros

The Mercedes-AMG EQE is powered by a twin engine that is capable of pulling the electric car from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. On top of the explosive power, the EV is also comfortable, stylishly decorated and spacious.

But a car costs a lot of money. The BMW i4 M50 is a more affordable alternative to this. An electric car offers a lot of comfort, while being very pleasant and powerful to drive. Thanks to two powerful eDrive engines, the electric car delivers an impressive 400 kW (544 hp).

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is the ultimate Porsche EV that drives like a real Porsche. The electric car has god-like power thanks to its dual-motor AWD powertrain, producing a whopping 750 horsepower.

You can get the Tesla Model 3 Performance for about a quarter of the price of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S. The Model 3 doesn’t come close to the Porsche Taycan in terms of performance, but it offers a lot of luxury and power for the price range. The EV reaches one hundred kilometers per hour in 3.3 seconds. That’s just 0.5 seconds less than the Porsche Taycan Turbo S.

The IX M60 is one hell of a car. The big electric car weighs 2,559 kg. The M60 has two BMW M eDrive engines, which together produce 619 hp and a 0-100 time of 3.8 seconds.

If you want a powerful electric car but aren’t willing to spend more than a ton, the Kia EV6 GT might be for you. Although it costs less than half the price of the iX M60, the EV does not disappoint by any means. It has a twin-motor four-wheel drive, with a maximum power of 576 hp and a speed of 0-100 in 3.5 seconds. The Kia may not be as extravagant as the iX, but it’s definitely an electric car you can count on.
