2020 Hyundai Kona Electric vs. Its Competition

2020 Hyundai Kona Electric
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

Among electric cars, the Tesla Model 3 is the thought leader.

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 Ioniq is most widely available as a hybrid, and it has a low price tag.

The Kia Niro EV has similar range and practicality as the Kona Electric.

The Clarity has the shortest all-electric range of the bunch—perhaps the most awkward styling too.

Quick Specs
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.
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.
The 2020 Honda Clarity offers three comfortable, well-equipped ways to go about your daily routine—probably without producing any tailpipe emissions.
The 2020 Hyundai Ioniq hybrids and plug-ins trade on affordability instead of luxury.
The Kia Niro EV gets more screen space for 2020, and it remains one of the roomiest of the affordable long-range electric vehicles.
It’s not perfect, but the 2020 Tesla Model 3 has a devoted following and growing list of fans.
