Hitting the market last year, the BMW i3 is not the cheapest entry-level EV, but it is one of the coolest. Built on an aluminum frame with a carbon fiber body, the i3 has a low center of gravity and quick acceleration; it reaches 60 mph in just over 6 seconds. The 170-horsepower electric motor provides a range of 81 miles, but with an optional range-extending gas generator you can tack another 70 miles onto that figure.
