Range is money.

As most of the affordable electric cars are smaller, like Fiat 500e 7 Mitsubishi i-MiEV, also they will have the limited range.

Such models are the highly affordable ones and if you stay close to your home and have student who wants to drive, then such models will be the right fit. Some other models, such as Focus Electric or e-Golf, are much closer to 100-mile mark (later models might go till 125 miles) can cost a bit more. Bonus is that both the Golf and Ford are based on the current compacts and provide the similar utility as the traditional gas model.
