    While plunging gasoline prices have been a boon to the auto industry, spurring sales of lower-mileage but higher-profit trucks and SUVs, it’s having the opposite effect on electric and hybrid-powered models. Deliveries in the segment have reportedly dropped by 17 percent so far this year.

    While automakers may be softening their sales expectations, they remain gung-ho on bringing new green cars to market. A redesigned 2016 Nissan Leaf will feature a higher 107-mile range, while next year’s all-new Chevrolet Bolt could deliver as much as 200 miles on a charge. Ford recently announced it would add 13 new electrified vehicles to its lineup by 2020, including a new Focus Electric model next year.

    Needless to say, EVs are a much harder sell today then they were back when gas prices were up near four bucks a gallon. Still, there are still a number of compelling reasons for consumers – at least those whose needs and lifestyles can accommodate their limited operating range on a charge – to buy and drive electric cars.

    Here are 10 of them:
