There were a lot of electric cars sold in 2021. These are the top 10 most popular electric cars of 2021. If you look in car showrooms across the United States, you can find dozens of all-electric, electric, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid cars. In addition, there will be many more electric cars and electric trucks to choose from in the next few years. They will come in all shapes and sizes, from hot hatches and small crossovers to sleek sedans and high-performance racers.

With each step we take toward a cleaner, greener future, electric cars will become more and more common. In 2021, the number of electric vehicles sold increased by 26 percent compared to the previous year. Even though restrictions and parts shortages will keep electric vehicle sales down, they will still reach 6.4 million units sold around the world this year, up a whopping 168 percent from last year.

Global sales growth in 2021 was led by Tesla, which sold more than 386,000 electric cars in the first three months. The Volkswagen Group came in second with 332,000 cars sold. General Motors came in third with 227,000 cars in the first three months of the year. As we near the end of 2021, more than 16 million electric vehicles will be in use around the world. Two-thirds of those will be all-electric vehicles.

The top ten most popular electric cars of 2021

Following is a list of the top 10 best-selling electric cars in the US for 2021. These cars do not cause any pollution at all. All of them have proven their worth in a very competitive field. These electric cars also lead the way when it comes to low maintenance, great range, and the most up-to-date safety and driver-assist features. This list is based on sales estimates from Automotive News. It goes from least to most units sold.

no. 10 Hyundai Ioniq Electric

Last year, the electric version of Hyundai's Ioniq hatchback sold in more numbers than the gasoline-powered counterpart. The electric version also comes in hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions. With a battery pack that only holds 38.3 kWh, the Ioniq has the smallest range of any of the top 10 best-selling electric cars in 2021. It has an EPA estimated range of 273 km before it needs to be charged. The Hyundai Ioniq Electric, on the other hand, comes with a lot of intelligent driver aids and DC fast charging as standard.

The Hyundai Ioniq Electric has a starting price of 29,100 euros.

no. 9 Porsche Taycan

People who want to go fast are flocking to the German car company's high-performance Porsche Taycan electric sports car. In its Turbo S trim, this high-end racer can get you from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.6 seconds, which is very quick. That is a lot faster than you can read this sentence right now. However, that trim level costs 185K. On the other hand, if you buy the Porsche Taycan 4S rear-wheel-drive version for less money, you can go 365 km on a single charge and get to 60 in 3.8 seconds. Fast enough, and you save more than $100,000.

The Porsche Taycan electric sports car has a starting price of 72,500 euros.

no. 8 Hyundai Kona Electric

It was another big win for Hyundai. The Hyundai sod four times more Kona Electric cars than Hyundai's Ioniq car. The Kona is more popular because it has a bigger battery pack, which gives it a range of 415 km instead of the Ioniq's 273 km. This is another reason it outsells the Ioniq, which is a small SUV that is very popular. The Kona is a small crossover, which is the most popular type of SUV today. In addition, both cars come with a 10-year/100,000 powertrain warranty and 5-years of roadside assistance from Hyundai.

The Hyundai Kona Electric has a starting price of 29,800 euros.

no. 7 Audi e-tron and Audi e-tron Sportback

However, the Nissan Leaf S Plus has a bigger 214-hp electric motor and a 62-kWh battery that can go 363 km.

no. 5 Volkswagen ID.4

If you want to buy an electric car, the Tesla Model Y is the best-selling electric car in the world. This small electric SUV sold more than the Model 3, and the company wants to double the production of the Model Y for 2022. This is how it works: The Model 3's brother is very fast, like an electric sports car in the body of a crossover. On the Long Range, you can go 524 km on one charge, while the Performance can only go 487 km before it needs to be charged. Both versions have two motors and drive all four wheels. The Tesla Model Y Long Range will get you to 60 miles per hour in 4.1 seconds if you buy it. If you buy the Performance, it will do it in just 3.5 seconds.
