Honda Motor Co., the maker of the popular EV, says the EV’s performance and affordability are the most appealing features.
However, there are plenty of others to consider, including the car’s battery life, fuel economy and price.
Honda says the new RZR EV, which has a range of 310 miles and an EPA-estimated range of 250 miles, is the top-performing EV on the market.
“The new RAV4 EV is the most powerful, fuel-efficient, and economical EV on today’s market,” said Honda chief marketing officer, Tom Williams, in a press release.
“As the only electric car in the world capable of meeting the EPA’s new benchmark of an electric range of 340 miles, the RZRS EV is at the forefront of EV technology and performance.”
The RZRs new EPA-rated range is 310 miles, according to Honda, which makes up for the extra miles that are due to the car needing an electric motor to drive the vehicle.
However the car has a lower-range, higher-fuel-economy battery, according the company.
The new RIVR EV has a fuel-economier battery, which provides more range, according Honda, but its battery life is also better.
The car’s average fuel economy is 27 MPG, or 22 miles per gallon.
The company says the RIV R has a higher-range and more efficient battery, but it has a slightly lower average range of 300 miles.
It has a EPA-certified range of 220 miles, which is a little lower than the RAVs average range, but still the best-performing electric car on the road.
The RIVRS EV also has a larger battery than the other two EVs on the marketplace, the Nissan Leaf and the Honda Accord.
The Nissan Leaf is still the only EV with a range above 300 miles, but Honda says it’s now the only one with a “competitive price” that will keep buyers interested.
“We expect that this EV will become a key selling point for consumers in the future, and will also continue to offer value for money for consumers with other EVs,” said Williams.
The Honda RIVS EV is expected to be available in 2018.
“Honda’s RIVs EV will be an attractive option for those wanting a more affordable, reliable EV option for their everyday commute,” said Mike Luebke, chief operating officer of EVInsider.com, in the press release announcing the Rivs EV.
