Which EV is Right For You?


An electric vehicle (EV) offers a wealth of perks in the way of long-term savings and innovative functionality. You have many options if you’re in the market for a new EV. Deciding which is the best fit for your needs is the first step in transforming how you drive.

Feel the Power of an Electric Truck

If you’re in the market for an electric truck, Ram has some compelling options on the way that you should consider. The company’s concept trucks boast some intriguing features we can’t wait to see on the lot.

We expect the Ram 1500 REV to come out in the fourth quarter of 2024, bringing the industry-leading Ram truck into the EV space. The Ram 1500 REV is an all-electric, zero-emission truck that should offer a standard driving range of 350 miles and an available range of 500 miles. With a maximum towing capacity of 14,000 pounds and a maximum payload capacity of 2,700 pounds, this vehicle doesn’t sacrifice any power or functionality for its electric design. The Ram 1500 REV has a striking exterior with an updated grille, illuminated Ram badge, LED headlights, and a sleek full-front fascia.

Ram has unveiled the Ram 1500 Revolution Concept, a sneak peek of its first electric full-size truck, the 2025 Ram 1500 REV. It has an STLA frame, which can accommodate a larger battery while providing more cabin space. The intriguing “frunk” offers one-touch access to a secure, weatherproof front storage compartment.

If you need a powerful, functional vehicle that can tow, haul, and work hard while keeping your fuel consumption low, an electric truck is just what you’re after. Our Huffines Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram (CJDR) Plano team always keeps a finger on the pulse of the EV industry. Contact us today if you’re eager to learn more about the Ram 1500 REV or other upcoming electric trucks. We’ll fill you in on everything we have on the lot and everything coming.

Pack the Family Into an Electric SUV

If you often carry passengers, an electric SUV is an excellent choice for covering many miles at minimal cost. With a spacious electric SUV, you can eliminate the expense of gas during your family road trips and supercharge your adventures.

For rugged trips, the Jeep Recon is an outstanding choice. We expect this fully electric SUV to be available in the U.S. in 2024. The Wagoneer S, another all-electric SUV set to turn heads and enter the scene in 2024, will provide sumptuous comfort and luxurious amenities during your off-road adventures. 

The 2024 Dodge Hornet R/T is a powerful plug-in hybrid electric vehicle with a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a 15.5 kWh lithium-ion battery. This pairing allows this roomy SUV to switch seamlessly between gas and electric modes, so you always have the power you need at the lowest possible fuel expense. You’ll enjoy 288 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque in this impressive hybrid crossover.

If you’re looking for an electric SUV that’s already had some time to prove itself on the road, the 2023 Grand Cherokee 4xe is readily available for purchase or lease. Its plug-in hybrid powertrain generates 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, guaranteeing a powerful experience. 

The Grand Cherokee 4xe comes with the Quadra-Trac II four-wheel drive system, automatically transferring torque to the axle when slipping is detected. This ensures stability and control regardless of the terrain. Additionally, the battery track in this vehicle is water-sealed, allowing you to wade into up to 24 inches of water without damaging the electric battery. With these features, there are no limits to your explorations. 

An SUV is the way to go when you want room for everyone and their gear. You’ll enjoy a spacious interior that keeps your family comfortable while cashing in on the fuel-saving benefits of an electric vehicle. These versatile options offer a little of everything for your group outings.

Which Electric Vehicle Is Right for Me

We have an extensive inventory of new electric and hybrid vehicles for you to explore. When browsing your options, there are a few things to consider that can help you narrow down your preferences and ultimately decide which electric vehicle is best for your needs:

What Type of Loads You Transport

Decide if you plan to tow a trailer, haul large payloads, or primarily carry passengers. While you’ll get the best mileage by sticking with a smaller EV, you don’t want to purchase an undersized option that can’t meet your ultimate needs. Fortunately, with the introduction of spacious SUVs and electric trucks, you don’t have to compromise to go electric. To make an informed decision, define your load and choose a vehicle that can easily accommodate it.

Ability To Charge Your Vehicle on the Road

If you have ready access to electric chargers, you can opt for an all-electric vehicle with few problems. But if you frequently travel and can’t always locate an EV charging station, you should get a hybrid instead. This way, you can enjoy the benefits of an EV while also having the convenience of a gas-powered car that you can easily refuel.

Your Budget

While an EV can save you money in the long term due to lower fuel and maintenance costs, it comes with a higher upfront price tag. Find out if you qualify for one of our incentives and run through your budget to see what price range makes the most sense.
