Among electric cars, the Tesla Model 3 is the thought-leader.
Now more affordable and available, the Model 3 will be a beacon for buyers swayed by the culture of Tesla.
It has thrilling performance, but buying one still feels like a roll of the dice.
For everyone else, the Bolt EV, Kia Niro EV, Hyundai Ioniq, and Honda Clarity are (in theory) available nationwide and offer electrified transportation without baggage.
The Bolt EV offers a similar range, but its styling is a little stilted and not for everyone.
The Kia Niro EV will be available in the U.S.
soon and should offer similar range and practicality as the Kona Electric.
The Ioniq is most widely available as a hybrid, and it has a low price tag.
The Clarity has the shortest all-electric range of the bunch—perhaps the most awkward styling too.
