The BMW i3 competes among a growing number of electric cars that are increasingly more affordable.
The Tesla Model 3 may not be among that crowd, but the Model 3 isn’t much more expensive than the i3—and offers almost double the range.
The Chevy Bolt EV’s 234-mile range comes with a lower price tag, although its plain jane approach may not be as attractive to buyers.
The Hyundai Kona Electric is a new electric crossover with more than 250 miles of range and a lower price tag.
The related Kia Niro EV is a bigger hatchback than the i3 and will go on sale later in 2019.
The Fiat 500e is far more affordable—if you can find it.
The slow-selling small car is available in some states at deeply discounted prices.
