2022 Jaguar I Pace, Gray

As emissions legislation becomes stricter, electric cars are becoming increasingly popular in the crossover and SUV segment, enabling car owners to transition from fossil fuels to all-electric without compromise. Electric crossovers come in different shapes and sizes, smaller ones offer more maneuverability and sportiness, while larger ones offer more space for the family.

Some of the best electric crossovers now have shorter charging times and longer driving range. Nearly every car on this list offers over 200 miles of EPA-rated range per charge. While a few cost more than six figures, most are under $50,000. This list shows you all-electric, reliable, luxurious and performance crossovers on the market in 2022.

10 Hyundai Ioniq 5

The 2022 Ioniq 5 is Hyundai’s major entry into the all-electric compact crossover segment. With its nimble handling and smooth ride, the all-new Hyundai Ioniq 5 is unlike anything you’ve ever seen from the Seoul-based automaker. The Standard Range comes with a rear-mounted electric motor that delivers up to 168 horsepower.

For more power, opt for the extended-range all-wheel drive battery that generates up to 320 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. As an all-electric package, the Ioniq 5 has a completely flat floor for more legroom. With the backrests stowed, the 2022 Ioniq 5 can hold 20 pieces of hand luggage.

9 Kia EV6

The EV6 is the first Kia to be built all-electric from the ground up. Without an engine, Kia had the luxury of creating a spacious, sporty compact crossover with sleek styling for the EV6. Most of the technology in the EV6 can be found in the Hyundai Ioniq 5, including the super-fast public DC fast charging feature.

The 2022 Kia EV6 is available in five trim levels, with rear or all-wheel drive. While the base model Light RWD produces just 167 horsepower, models with four-wheel drive and larger batteries deliver up to 577 horsepower. Each single-engine EV6 has an EPA estimate of 117 MPGe.

8 Ford Mustang Mach E

While the Ford Mustang Mach-E doesn’t share the same mechanics as the standard Ford Mustang, the design and feel are inspired by the iconic Ford. With sporty handling and acceleration, the Mach-E delivers a buttery smooth experience. The base Select model delivers up to 266 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque, while the GT and GT Performance models deliver 480 horsepower.

The top-of-the-line Mach-E with RWD and 91.0 kWh extended-range battery pack has an EPA-estimated range of 305 miles. A floating armrest, heated front seats, panoramic sunroof and customizable interior lighting welcome you to the interior of the 2022 Mach-E.

7 Hyundai Kona Electric

The 2022 Hyundai Kona Electric comes with everything you can find on its gas counterpart, except for the four-cylinder engine. Instead of the petrol engine, Hyundai introduced a 201 hp electric motor with a 64.0 kWh battery pack.

The Kona Electric feels like a performance hatchback rather than a crossover it really is. It is highly composed around corners and comes with a three-stage regenerative braking system. The cargo area is essentially the same as the standard Kona and can fit five carry-on suitcases.

6 Volkswagen ID.4

The Volkswagen ID.4 is slightly smaller than the Tiguan SUV, but about as generous in the cargo department. Think of the Volkswagen ID.4 as the zero-emission reincarnation of the original Type 1 beetle. It comes with a rear-mounted electric motor, but an optional dual AWD motor is also available.

The Volkswagen ID.4 has a decent range of over 280 miles per charge with the availability of DC fast charging. The 12-way power front seats, mood lighting and a host of high-tech features welcome you as you step into the ID.4.

5 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt Electric Utility Vehicle offers signature rugged styling and a more spacious interior than the Bolt hatchback. With its semi-autonomous driving system, the Bolt EUV has a chance against the Tesla Model Y and the Ford Mustang Mach-E.

All three trim levels – LT, Premier and Launch Edition – of the Bolt EUV are powered by a 200hp front-wheel drive electric motor. The SUV-inspired Bolt EUV offers a pleasant ride, even over uneven road surfaces. All models have a 65.0 kWh battery pack with an estimated EPA range of 247 miles.

4 Audi Q4 e-tron

Audi has achieved its goal of bringing luxury electric driving within the reach of price-conscious buyers with the Q4 e-tron that perfectly combines performance and functionality. The base model comes with a single 201 horsepower electric motor with a RWD configuration.

You can also opt for a more powerful 295 horsepower dual-motor AWD configuration with a range of 241 miles per charge. The Q4 e-tron’s cabin isn’t all that different from most Audis, but it manages to fit five, even though the Q4 e-tron concept was a four-seater.

3 BMW iX

The BMW iX is one of the most tech-heavy vehicles from the Bavarian automaker, with an electrochromic sunroof that goes from opaque to transparent at the touch of a button, and a navigation system with an augmented reality overlay. It offers a more refined driving experience than even the Tesla Model X.

The Bimmer SUV is available in just one model: the xDrive50, with a pair of electric motors that deliver up to 516 horsepower. The BMW iX comes with a 105.2 kWh battery pack with an estimated 324 miles per charge. The iX is about the same size as the X5 and X6 crossovers, but has slightly more cabin and luggage space than they do.

2 Tesla Model X

The Tesla Model X was introduced more than six years ago, but it still manages to turn heads every time it hits the road. The electric SUV with falcon-wing rear doors outperforms the competition when it comes to acceleration, but it comes at a great price.

The base X model is equipped with twin electric motors with AWD capability. This setup pushes the SUV to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, which only a few sports cars can achieve. For more kicks, opt for the Model X Plaid. The interior is almost buttonless with its unique yoke style steering wheel controller.

1 Jaguar I-Pace

The beautifully detailed and well-mannered Jaguar I-Pace is more tech-savvy and performance-oriented than ever, but it may not gain popularity due to its high price. The I-Pace feels more like a sports car than a five-seat crossover.

The ute is available in HSE trim, which was top-of-the-line in the previous iteration. Powered by two electric motors, the I-Pace pumps out 394 horsepower and 512 lb-ft of torque. The EPA estimated range of the 90.0 kWh battery pack is 253 miles.
