Well, we're getting something incredible. I'm not talking about a brand new supercar or anything like that, but I am talking about a brand new electric car. The vehicle is coming to us from a Chinese company and will be only $7,800 USD. It's going to be an ultra-compact car as well, being only 2.5 meters long and 1 meter wide. The vehicle will have two swappable electric batteries, making it easy to charge and go quickly. It isn't coming to us until 2018 though, so you're going to have to wait a bit.

Until then, you can check out some used Chevy Spark EVs. They only get 90 miles on a full charge, but they're pretty dirt cheap. Starting around $9,000, these guys are hitting the markets right now and should be available in areas around you. If you're deciding to take a step up and get the Model 3 from Tesla for $35,000, I don't blame you. I would do the exact same thing..
