The 10 most affordable 2022 electric vehicles in Canada

Electric vehicles are on a roll and 2022 will be a particularly important year for the segment. Many new models of electric cars are entering as a 2022 product while others are retiring.

Several of the more affordable electric vehicle models last year are gone, but in return they are being replaced by vehicles with more range and better performance. In addition, with the discounts currently offered by the federal government (up to $ 5,000) and by Quebec and British Columbia (up to $ 8,000 and $ 5,000, respectively), it is still possible to get an electric vehicle for less than $ 30,000.

Here are the 10 most affordable 2022 electric vehicles before discounts.
