Whether you’re a new EV driver, a seasoned enthusiast, or simply curious, I’m sure you’ll find Reddit an interesting source of information — especially when you know where to look.

You can find news and reviews, share experiences, and join discussions covering a wide range of EV tech and lifestyle topics.

To get you started, here are the best five subreddits for electric cars and ebikes:

r/electricvehicles

Hi there, EV nerd!

Subscribe now for a weekly recap of our favorite mobility stories

This community is an information hub for anything that has to do with EVs. The group shares news, images, reviews, and articles. Some key focus areas are vehicle recommendations, buying experiences, tax rebates, and government policies.

If you’re looking to connect with like-minded people and want some help in transitioning to EV ownership, it’s a great place to be.

r/electriccars

This is a similar subreddit. It’s full of news, vehicle updates, and industry insights. Plus, it’s a space where you can ask about things such as torque, battery life, range estimation, and more.

r/evcharging

For now, the community only has 1.6K members — but I believe it’s gonna grow soon.

As the name suggests, it’s all about EV charging. Juicing up your car can sometimes be a pain, so it’s useful to be part of EV owners hub, where you can find information about using charging stations on the go, or installing one at home.

r/realtesla

Tesla-related subreddits are very popular, but this is my favorite one. It’s described as “revolutionary cars, shitty company: a discussion of Tesla driven by facts, data, and healthy skepticism.”

Need I say more?

r/ebikes (all things ebikes)

If electric bikes are closer to your taste (or budget), this one’s for you. Here you’ll find ebike news, reviews, and photos. You can ask questions and get advice on pretty much anything, from motor upgrades to tire performance.

So, there you go! Did you find the list useful? Or did we miss one you love? Let us know on Twitter.
