3 good electric cars to get from Tesla Model 3 and Renault Zoe

Choosing an electric car does not necessarily mean driving a Renault Zoé, Dacia Spring or Tesle Model 3. Now that the market is growing, you have many other options, including three for which L’Automobile Magazine will shine this spring of 2022.

But as the months go by, the “zero emissions” of news are becoming more and more, calling into question the established order.. In light of this summer, 2022, L’AM focuses on three relevant electric vehicles.
