Electric Vehicle Scoring System

EV.CENTER has pioneered a unique way of scoring Electric Cars based on five basic performance metrics: Speed, Acceleration, Battery Power, Range and Charge Speed.

Each of these metrics are displayed as bar graphs on the catalogue pages, with the overall score located on the bottom right of the car thumbnail image. This makes it very quick and easy to assess the basic performance rating of each vehicle.

Whilst the overall score is good for assessing the basic performance of a particular vehicle, it does not factor in other important metrics, such as cargo capacity, safety rating, number of seats, luxuries, ride quality, size, mod cons, etc. As we gather more data, we may provide a more comprehensive scoring system in the future, but for now, we have decided to use the five most important basic metrics.

Please bare in mind that the scores should be taken with a pinch of salt, and that vehicles that are built for specific things such as high cargo capacity, luxury or compact size will often be scored very low, as their basic performance will fall below the industry average. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that they are bad vehicles. Other factors such as reliability, durability and warranty are also not factored into the scores.

It is worth mentioning that we intentionally left the vehicle’s price out of the scoring equation, since price is something that can fluctuate, has no bearing on the performance of the vehicle and is something that can be filtered separately if desired. Use the price slider on the category page to find cars that suit your budget, and then apply other filters and/or sort by score, etc.

We hope the scores and comparisons are useful to you.
