Cheapest Electric SUVs for 2023Subaru

Practicality, affordability, and zero emissions don't have to be mutually exclusive. There are plenty of reasonably priced electric SUVs on sale today. These are the cheapest on the market right now.

2023 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

Price: $28,795
EPA-rated range: 247 miles

It's a shame the Bolt EUV is going out of production soon, because it represents the best value for money on the EV market right now. For under 30 grand you get a practical crossover with nearly 250 miles of range. You can't beat that.

2023 Hyundai Kona Electric

Price: $34,885
EPA-rated range: 258 miles

Hyundai is on a roll right now, both with its N performance division and its Ioniq electric cars. But if you're looking for something a bit more subdued, Hyundai also sells the Kona Electric. It offers impressive mileage for the price and doesn't look as flashy or futuristic as the Ioniq cars.

The Kona is one of the cheapest electric vehicles, period

2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5

Price: $42,785
