The average price for an EV has surpassed $60K; here are some affordable options
LOS ANGELES - Energy prices are soaring across the world and American consumers are feeling the pain at the gas station and in their wallets. Amid the surge in gas prices, thousands of consumers have flocked to dealerships and secondhand marketplaces in hopes of procuring an electric vehicle to cut costs on fuel, but finding an affordable EV or hybrid is becoming increasingly out of reach for many. In February, the average sale price for an EV surpassed $60,000, according to the consumer data website Edmunds. Despite higher prices for EVs and limited availability, strong demand has more communities feeling increased pressure to add charging stations or risk having drivers pass them by in favor of plug-in-friendly areas. Costs have been coming down over the years, but Ford CEO Jim Farley revealed at the Bernstein Conference in early June that the battery pack in a Ford Mustang Mach-E is still around $18,000 to produce.In response to these soaring costs due to high demand, some manufacturers desperate to enter the market are offering affordable options for electric vehicles.Here are a few of today’s discounted electric rides:View from behind of red Chevrolet Bolt electric car, with logo and California DMV clean air access okay decal visible, in Danville, California, March, 2020.

private space company headed by Elon Musk would have to take more than 75 actions to mitigate environmental impacts from the proposed plan to launch the Starship/Super Heavy vehicle from Boca Chica, Texas. Those measures would include actions to address impacts to fish, wildlife and plants in and around the site near the Gulf of Mexico. The SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket sits on launch pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center as it is prepared for life-off (Credit: Joe Raedle/Getty Images) The environmental review is only one step in the FAA's approval process, the agency said. ELON MUSK SAYS HE DOESN'T USE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS; SPACEX PRESIDENT DEFENDS HIM OVER SEXUAL ASSAULT CLAIM"SpaceX also must meet FAA safety, risk, and financial responsibility requirements before a license is issued for any launch activities," it said in a press release. Some of the measures SpaceX would have to take include adjusting lighting at the launch site, removing debris from sensitive habitats, notifying nearby communities in advance about potential engine noise and sonic booms resulting from launches and monitoring by a qualified biologist.SpaceX has previously said it would use the Starship for its most ambitious missions, including a potential trip to Mars. In February, Musk said the rocket could reach orbits for less than $10 million per flight within two or three years, a fraction of the traditional cost to launch rockets into space.CLICK HERE TO READ MORE ON FOX BUSINESSFox News has reached out to the company. Find more updates on this story on
