DETROIT – Brian Moody, Executive Editor for Autotrader, joins Yahoo Finance’s Kristin Myers to break down Autotrader’s top electric vehicle selections for 2021.
KRISTIN MYERS: Welcome back. Well, it seems like there’s more electric vehicles to pick from than ever before. So let’s go through some of the top picks from Autotrader. We’re joined now by Brian Moody, Autotrader’s Executive Editor. I don’t know why I said, electronic, Brian– forgive me there on that. But let’s start with the topic for the year. I’m seeing here it is the Mustang Mach E. Tell us about that one.
BRIAN MOODY: Well, the Mustang Mach E is definitely a revolutionary type of electric car. So first of all, it leverages the Mustang name, which a lot of people know and like, I guess you could say. It also has a lot of equity with American buyers. But it’s also a wholly different kind of electric car.
This is a sort of a crossover SUV type of thing– the type of vehicle that American buyers are buying more and more. It’s the most popular type of vehicle. And it has a decent range and it’s made by Ford. So all of these things together, it should be a pretty strong contender. We like it because it’s fun to drive. And it’s just one of those things that when you’re inside, it feels like nicely built, high tech, like a thing of quality.
KRISTIN MYERS: And it definitely looks nice as I’m watching that video there. OK, what’s number two on the list? I’m seeing Chevy Bolt EUV. Tell us about that one.
BRIAN MOODY: Right. So the Chevy Bolt EUV is like the Chevrolet Bolt that’s already out, except this is sort of more of an SUV-ish type version– more space inside, more of a, let’s say, bigger, blockier look. Do you notice a trend here? It’s toward SUVs. So that’s a good one.
