It is lighter and costs less compared to the Model S from the same manufacturer. Currently, only the Long Range version is available in Hong Kong, featuring four-wheel drive and two independent motors. The new Model 3 has a more streamlined appearance and is equipped with a redesigned steering wheel, ambient lighting, and a 15.4-inch central control screen.

The MINI Electric is equipped with features such as Harman Kardon audio, heated front seats, a range of safety systems, and parking assistance functions.

2023香港 22 款電動車推薦 | 一換一平價之選|連價格、性能及交付日期(不斷更新)

The EV6 , with its innovative and futuristic design, shares the same platform as its sister car, the Hyundai IONIQ 5. However, the EV6 has a more coupe-like body shape with prominent one-line rear tail lights, giving it a strong sci-fi vibe.

Unlike the popular large central screens found in many electric vehicles today, the EV6 features two connected 12.3-inch screens. The interior of the cabin has few physical buttons, and the air conditioning controls are touch-sensitive. The start button is located in front of the rotary 'gear stick,' making it easily accessible. The EV6 is equipped with a new intelligent regenerative braking system, offering six modes: 0, 1, 2, 3, i-PEDAL, and automatic. These modes can be operated using the paddles behind the steering wheel, making it easier for first-time electric vehicle drivers to adapt.

19. Lexus RZ450e

2023香港 22 款電動車推薦 | 一換一平價之選|連價格、性能及交付日期(不斷更新)

The RZ450e is not a modified version of a gasoline car but a brand new model specifically designed for electric vehicles. While it still retains some design elements reminiscent of a gasoline car, and even lacks the common front trunk space found in electric cars, the interior modifications are praiseworthy. The previous super-complicated and cumbersome buttons and touchpad on the gear stick have all been removed, resulting in a more streamlined and user-friendly operation and appearance.

The center console is equipped with a 14-inch touchscreen, which can be considered the hero of the simplified interior. It not only allows for viewing of general driving information but also incorporates air conditioning controls and supports wireless charging and wireless Apple CarPlay, enhancing convenience even further.

21. BYD Seal AWD Performance

2023香港 22 款電動車推薦 | 一換一平價之選|連價格、性能及交付日期(不斷更新)

The Seal is BYD's third electric vehicle released in Hong Kong, featuring a four-door sedan design and a remarkable 0-100 km/h acceleration of just 3.8 seconds, making it a strong competitor to Tesla’s Model 3. The Seal is BYD's first model to adopt the CTB (Cell-to-Body) architecture, integrating the battery pack into the chassis to significantly enhance the rigidity of the vehicle. BYD claims that the Seal has a torsional stiffness of 40,500 Nm/°, providing a solid driving experience.

Another highlight of the Seal is its iTAC (Intelligent Torque Adaption Control) system, which dynamically adjusts motor output in real time. For example, when going up a slope, it increases torque output to the rear wheels to prevent tire slip. This system also improves the vehicle’s handling in turns.

The Seal is available in Standard Range Dynamic and Extended Range Premium versions, offering ranges of 510 km and 650 km, respectively, with 1-for-1 prices of HKD $309,000 and $349,000.

How to select electric car insurance?

As electric cars offer superior performance, the associated relative risk is also heightened, leading to insurance premiums that are 30% to 150% higher than those for gasoline cars. Consequently, drivers must exercise greater caution when purchasing insurance for electric cars and compare premiums from different insurers. When selecting insurance for electric cars, consider the following suggestions:

1. Third-party or comprehensive coverage: Despite high electric car insurance premiums (for instance, around HKD $10,000 annually for an electric car costing between HKD $200,000 and HKD $300,000), a deductible of up to HKD $30,000 in the event of an accident still applies. Drivers should therefore assess their driving habits before deciding whether to secure third-party or comprehensive coverage.

2. Opt for companies that accept driver-provided mileage: Drivers can attempt to provide the insurance company with their actual mileage. The lower the mileage, the more affordable the premium.

3. P-license drivers should wait 1-2 years before transitioning to an electric car: Insurance for P-license drivers is already costly for gasoline cars, and electric cars only increase the expense.

4. Search for companies that accept restriction clauses: Drivers can suggest adding restriction clauses to the insurer, specifying that only designated drivers will operate the electric car, consequently lowering the premium.
