If you have been considering the switch from a gasoline-powered vehicle to an electric vehicle, but were deterred by the price tag, you should take a closer look at the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E. The well-equipped, fun-to-drive SUV made U.S. News & World Report’s list of the Cheapest EVs in 2021.

EVs have plenty of benefits that go beyond their fuel-efficient performance. According to U.S. News & World Report writer Steven Loveday, EVs on the market today can offer a more responsive performance than gas-powered vehicles and lower maintenance costs thanks to a lower number of mechanical components.

“While EVs are incredibly efficient, they tend to offer better overall performance than gas-powered cars thanks to their instant torque, one-pedal driving, low center of gravity, high-tech dual-motor all-wheel drive systems, and virtually silent operation,” he wrote.

The U.S. News staff examined EVs on the market today and selected those that feature an MSRP near or under $50,000. They also reviewed their previous rankings of the EVs to comprise their list.
