TCC’s Bottom Line

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. The 2020 Kia Niro is a compelling eco-friendly car for those opposed to Prius-like looks. It’s not perfect, but the 2020 Tesla Model 3 has a devoted following and growing list of fans.
