Electric cars - Which are the cheapest and best on the market?

28 syyskuu, 2021

Interest in green cars, specifically those that are fully or partially powered by electricity, has increased drastically in recent years. So much so that twice as many Swedes as last year now state that they are eager to let their next car be rechargeable. Are you perhaps one of them? With us at Kvdbil, you can both buy a used electric car through bidding or directly at a fixed price .

Electric cars - everything you want to know about electric cars


An electric car is powered by one or more electric motors through a battery, which is charged through the mains. The cars do not have a combustion engine, which means that they do not actually need an exhaust pipe and therefore do not produce any local emissions.

What is an electric car?

Hybrid cars are instead powered by a combination of combustion engine and electric motor.

How long is the range of electric cars?

How many miles you can drive on a charge varies greatly, and a few years old electric car and a new one can differ greatly in range. With that in mind, it's wise to review your transportation needs before deciding which electric car is best for you. Today, the range of different electric cars on the market can vary from around 20 to 60 miles on a charge. If you are curious about comparing the range of different models, we recommend All about electric cars' range table

An electric car is especially well suited for city driving, both in terms of emissions, but also as the charging options tend to be better and more accessible in big cities. But if you have the opportunity to charge the car at home, everyday life can immediately become easier for those who choose an electric car. Today, it is increasingly common to be able to rent parking spaces with charging facilities for those who live in an apartment, and if you live in a villa, it may be smart to review whether you should install a charging box at home yourself.

Tip: Did you know that you can get a tax reduction when you install so-called green technology in your home, such as a charging box for an electric car? Read more on the Swedish Tax Agency's website.

Yes, it depends on whether you are thinking only of the car's purchase price or if you are thinking of the car's total cost of ownership, i.e. the car's TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).

Which electric cars have a tow bar?
