Edmunds’ top-rated electric cars for 2018
Most affordable: The Hyundai Ioniq Electric starts at a price of $30,385 and has a range of 124 miles. Edmunds said the car’s low cost and user-friendly tech is expected from a Hyundai and it has the most efficient drivetrain on the market, meaning owners will pay less to keep it charged. Editors said it wasn’t the best-driving EV and the rear seat wasn’t comfortable. But, Edmunds said it offers a lot of features at an appealing price.

MADISON, Wis. — New requirements for electric vehicles are coming to Madison.

The City Council adopted new requirements at its meeting Tuesday night. According to a release, the new ordinance requires at least 10 percent of newly-built parking for multifamily residential and some commercial uses to be electric vehicle-ready: This means there will need to be measures in place to easily add chargers in the future. The measure also includes a schedule to increase the percentage of electric vehicle-ready and electric vehicle-installed parking every five years.

The City Council cites Madison’s goal of community net zero carbon emissions by 2050 as a reason for passing the measure. The Council said 41 percent of the city’s emissions come from cars.

District 12 Alder Syed Abbas sponsored the proposal. Alders Tag Evers, Grant Foster, Patrick Heck, Max Prestigiacomo, Mike Verveer, Lindsay Lemmer, Sambah Baldeh, Shiva Bidar, Nasra Weheile, Keith Furman, and Sheri Carter co-sponsored the proposal.
