Electric cars are like consumer electronics in the way their technology improves dramatically with each generation.
The i3 is among the oldest electric car designs, and it shows up against rivals that considerably outpace its range for far less money.
The Chevy Bolt EV is a perennial favorite for its excellent range, comfortable ride, and palatable price tag.
The Nissan Leaf doesn’t have quite the range of the Bolt EV, though its safety tech is a big step up.
Kia’s Niro and Hyundai’s related Kona both make excellent choices and boast impressive real-world range.
They’re bargains and should not be missed.
If you’re looking at electric cars, certainly the Tesla Model 3 is on your list—and we can’t blame you as it’s a great vehicle with a minimalist interior that may or may not hold appeal.
