Do electric cars come in manual transmission?

I haven’t had a car that wasn’t a manual transmission. I doubt that EVs will have it, but I have to ask anyway. Do electric cars come in manual transmission?

Currently, electric cars do not come in manual transmission, but this may soon change.
There are still a number of people who prefer the feel of a clutch pedal underneath their left foot. Most of those people remain reluctant to even make the switch to a gas-fueled car with automatic transmission.
Globally, most
electric cars
come with a single-speed automatic transmission, with a few exceptions having two-speed automatic. However, none will have a manual transmission.
The good news is that a manual electric car may be on the way. In early 2022, Toyota filed a patent for an all-electric vehicle that will simulate the feeling of driving with a manual transmission. This might be just the medium that you’re looking for.
