Electric vehicles aren’t a thing yet here in the Philippines. In other markets, though? They’re really starting to catch on.
That said, choosing one to drive home out of the current stable of mass-market electric cars can be tricky—more so when you consider countless buyers out there are going to be new to the proposition of clean motoring. Hey, there’s a reason no manufacturer ditching the internal combustion engine (ICE) overnight.
So, what to buy then? Options are still currently limited, but this doesn’t mean some markets aren’t spoiled for choice. With this in mind, Top Gear has gathered a dozen EVs and tasked resident car guru Chris Harris with separating the top dog from the rest of the pack. Watch:
Long story short? You want range, style, charging support, and a neat interior and, currently, the Tesla Model 3 is what offers all of this in spades. If you’re looking to stand out, however, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more suitable EV to do so in than the Porsche Taycan.
That Top Gear managed to get all these EVs parked in one spot is, indeed, a feat. But we’re more impressed with how Chris Harris managed to break each one down in a relatively concise fashion in just over four minutes.
