TCC’s Bottom Line
Once cutting edge, the 2020 BMW i3 has fallen well behind other electric cars. Only purists need apply. A few more miles of range and modest upgrades push the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV electric hatchback back at the top for (non-Tesla) range, but there are other more charming urban electric cars. At less than $30,000 after tax credits, the 2020 Hyundai Kona Electric is a great-value, high-range EV…even if it isn’t available everywhere.
