Buying a car is hard. As a self-identified car nut, trust me, I know — and it gets even harder if you're trying to buy an all-electric vehicle. Tesla's Model S gets the overwhelming majority of the attention, but it turns out there are a lot of models on the market and more are coming with every new model year. Just last week, a California-based startup, Renovo, announced its insane half-million-dollar Coupe.

I'm not going to pretend that this is a comprehensive guide to buying an EV — it's anything but — but maybe it'll give you a few ideas for the next time you hit the Powerball jackpot. Go green, everybody.
