The 10 best electric cars of 2022 (and how long it takes to charge them)

December 30, 2022 | Wesley van Barlingen

Electric mobility is no longer in its infancy. Over the past decade, we’ve seen an explosion in the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the roads, with the WEF recently forecasting 2022 EV sales to increase by 57% year over year to 10.6 million.

Consumers are also more receptive to EVs than ever: according to the latest EY Mobility Consumer Index (MCI), 52% of consumers looking to buy a car would choose an EV, a 22% rise from 2020. 

As we approach the end of the year, you may be wondering which electric cars have had the biggest impact in 2022. To answer that question, we’ve compiled below the 10 best-selling EVs of 2022 across Europe and the US, including information on range, battery, and charging.

We cover the following 10 models (in no particular order): 

  1. Tesla Model Y
  2. Tesla Model 3
  3. Fiat 500e        
  4. Peugeot e-208        
  5. Hyundai IONIQ 5
  6. Kia EV6
  7. Volkswagen ID.4
  8. Ford Mustang Mach-E    
  9. BMW iX
  10. Renault Megane E-Tech 

Tesla Model Y

Tesla’s Model Y, after being unveiled in 2019, started appearing on the roads in 2020. While sharing many features and parts with the smaller Model 3, the Model Y is a spacious mid-sized SUV that can be optionally configured as a seven-seater, making it a popular choice for many families and outdoor sports enthusiasts. 

While Tesla hasn’t confirmed vehicle sale numbers for this year, BloombergNEF estimates that Tesla has shipped 500,000 Model Ys so far in 2022, with the number reaching 760,000 by the end of the year.
