The advancement in today’s electric car technology means that motorists interested in sustainable, zero-emission driving can now choose from a wide range of electric cars at prices comparable to internal combustion engine cars. Here are some notable options that offer great value, performance, and everyday usability.
Hyundai Kona Electric and Ioniq Electric
Local Hyundai dealer Komoco Motors has been at the forefront of electrification in Singapore, and models like the all-new Kona Electric and Ioniq Electric have driven this sustainable, zero-emission crusade.
To meet the different needs of drivers, Hyundai has three specific electric vehicle offerings in its product range: the Kona Electric standard and long-haul SUV and the Ioniq Electric sedan. They each have a range of up to 305 km, 484 km and 311 km, enough for a week of city traffic. The performance data range from 135 HP to 201 HP with 395 Nm torque for a thrilling speed boost when required.
Kona Electric and Ioniq Electric are built for confidence with smooth turns and a dynamic stance and promise satisfaction – from the moment the cars are seen until they are driven out of the parking lot.

Kia Niro EV
With the Kia Niro EV, practicality does not compromise, as the crossover checks the boxes for spacious practicality, a well-equipped cabin and premium features. These include a reversing camera with guard rails, ventilated front seats, rear cross traffic warning and collision warning in the blind spot.
With 204 hp and 395 Nm of torque, the fully electric Kia Niro EV is a lively performer that offers an emission-free range of 455 km with its 64 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery. For the average driver, this corresponds to a week of driving. Four driving modes give the power transmission character, while the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.8 seconds. And with fast charging, the empty battery can be charged to 80 percent in 54 minutes.

Maxus E deliver 3
The all-electric Maxus E Deliver 3 is a panel van that helps businesses save money while they make it.
As the first electric light freight car of its kind offered by Cycle & Carriage in Singapore, the Maxus E Deliver 3 is also eligible for the $ 30,000 discount under the government’s commercial vehicle emissions program.
Under the hood, the E Deliver 3 is powered by an electric motor with 120 hp and 255 Nm torque. Given that most commercial vehicles have a defined usage behavior, its range of 240 km will not bother the majority of operators, especially if the quick charge recharges its batteries from empty to 80 percent in the same 45 minutes it takes for lunch can.
The special thing about the E Deliver 3 is the benefits it offers. With 4,800 liters of cargo space and a load capacity of up to 905 kg, it is easy to imagine the possible uses of the van, especially in logistics.
Thanks to its electric drivetrain, the driver and crew will be delighted with the rapid acceleration of the E Deliver 3. A spacious cabin with entertainment functions such as Apple CarPlay on the 7-inch infotainment system will further enhance the comfort on board.

MG ZS EV
You can count on a British automaker like MG to appeal to discerning drivers in Singapore. Cue MG’s award-winning ZS EV, the fully electric, emission-free brother of the HS-SUV with turbocharger.
Part of the ZS EV’s appeal comes from the fact that it is one of the most affordable all-electric cars on the market, especially with discounts for the electric vehicle early adopter program. But much of it comes from the fact that its combination of electric motor and lithium-ion battery generates around 141 hp with a torque increase of 353 Nm for rapid acceleration in the 8.5 seconds that the ZS EV takes from 0 to 100 km / h needed. Good for a range of 355 km, the rapid driving of the car makes it a pleasant journey for the driver and fellow passengers. If necessary, fast charging can supply empty batteries with 80 percent energy in just 40 minutes.
The ZS EV’s good manners also extend to driving behavior on the road, with suspension tailored for comfort and a soundproof cabin that allows occupants to travel smoothly and quietly. There is even a panoramic glass roof that underlines the spaciousness of the interior.
Other subtleties include an 8-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a PM2.5 air purification system, a tire pressure monitoring system and an electronic stability program that works in the background to make every journey safe.
