RACV’s electric car of the year, over $65,000
What’s the best EV on the Australian market for over $65,000? RACV names its top picks for 2020.
While electric vehicle prices are expected to reach parity with equivalent petrol and diesel models later this decade, for now EVs remain an expensive proposition – regardless of the badge.
Premium brands quickly jumped on the EV bandwagon after seeing Tesla’s success with its high-end offerings, and now the competition at the pointy end of the market is heating up. If you have some cash to splash on an eco-car, there are some exceptional models to choose from, and many more on the way.
But which is the best of the best? RACV test drove and compared the entry-level variant of every premium electric vehicle on the Australian market – scoring each on value for money, safety, driving range and charging, interior space, comfort and quality, drive impressions and warranty and servicing – to find Australia's EV of the Year for 2020.
Here are the results.
The Model S is the car that put Tesla – and its founder, Elon Musk – on the map.
The Tesla Model 3 is the best-selling EV in the world.
