These are the electric cars arriving by 2020 that you can actually afford

A slew of long-range, electric cars are expected to hit the market by 2020.
Several of these electric vehicles will be made by luxury automakers and will likely cost upwards of $50,000.
But there are also several automakers working on EVs with a range of 200-plus miles that will likely have a friendlier price tag.
Here's a breakdown of the long-range electric cars coming to market in the next few years that people would be able to afford.
Tesla's Model 3
The Model 3, which Tesla began delivering on July 28, starts pricing at $35,000, but consumers will have to pay a couple thousand extra if they want Autopilot features activated.
The base version of the Model 3 has a range of 220 miles per charge and is spacious enough for five people.
Tesla began taking preorders for the vehicle in April 2016, and the company said it has been averaging about 1,800 orders a day since the company's handover event in July.
While the company plans to deliver some of the preorders by the end of 2017, the bulk will likely be delivered in 2018. So if you want your Model 3 before 2020, you should place your order now.
Tesla also plans to launch its Model Y, a compact SUV, by 2020.
