One of the main obstacles that prevented American consumers from purchasing electric vehicles in the past has been practicality. Today, practicality isn’t as big of an issue for newer electric vehicles. A driving range of over 200 miles has become the new unspoken standard.

As a result, affordable electric SUVs are practical enough for most consumers living in crowded cities with access to electric vehicle chargers. There has never been an easier time in history to find and purchase an electric SUV that is capable of driving for over 200 miles before needing to recharge.
