There is now a visualization how many electric vehicle models are on sale in America, from what brands and with what specs such as range or horsepower. Based on solid grounds like the EPA EV range estimate database, the graphic includes all US-sold EVs - from the cheapest to the most expensive - complete with their exact prices and specifications relative to the competition.

While not on the scale of China where EV startups are mushrooming, the US has experienced its fair share of the electric car boom and now has plenty of makes and models on sale to choose from. Tesla cars dominate the US market, but EV newcomers like Hyundai, Audi, Ford, or Rivian, are increasingly making inroads on this side of the pond, too. This is why Omri Wallach and Carmen Ang from the Visual Capitalist project, have now used their graph-making skills to compile a list of all the electric cars available in America, complete with their specs and prices, relying on data from the Car and Driver and EPA databases.

It turns out that there are no less than 18 carmakers selling electric vehicles in the US, a third of which are American - Tesla, Ford, Rivian, Chevrolet, Lucid, and GMC. It's actually GMC that offers the most expensive electric vehicle in the US - the US$110,295 Hummer - while the cheapest electric cars in America right now are the tiny Mini Cooper SE and the aging Nissan Leaf, sold at sub-US$30,000 prices. Here's a list of the specs and ranges of all electric vehicles available to buy in the US now, arranged by price:

While it's not surprising that Tesla has the most EV models on sale in the US, Audi sells just one model less in its eTron series, while next come Volvo, Rivian, Chevrolet, Hyundai, and Kia, each with two EV models available:

  • Tesla (US) - 4
  • Audi (Germany) - 3
  • Volvo (Sweden) - 2
  • Rivian (US) - 2
  • Kia (South Korea) - 2
  • Hyundai (South Korea) - 2
  • Chevrolet (US) - 2
  • Volkswagen (Germany) - 1
  • Porsche (Germany) - 1
  • Polestar (Sweden) - 1
  • Nissan (Japan) - 1
  • Mini Cooper (Germany) - 1
  • Mercedes (Germany) - 1
  • Mazda (Japan) - 1
  • Lucid (US) - 1
  • Jaguar (UK) - 1
  • GMC (US) - 1
  • Ford (US) - 1

Looking at the price and specs list of all the electric vehicles available to buy in the US, Teslas actually seem a good value for money in every category. Despite the never-ending Tesla price increases, its cars offer a pretty high range and power ratio at their prices next to the competition, and the same goes to Hyundai or Polestar. Tesla's pioneering advantage is pretty visible here, as it has the supply chain clout and experience to wield when the going gets tough in order to ensure the highest profit margins per car in the industry and still deliver in every EV category - from the budget, to the expensive class.
