2020 Kia Niro EV vs. Its Competition

2020 Kia Niro EV
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

There are a number of affordable electric hatchbacks and small crossovers with sticker prices that start under $40,000, but just a few with rated ranges over 200 miles.

In its Leaf Plus version, the Nissan Leaf offers up to 226 miles of range and faster 100-kw fast charging.

The Hyundai Kona Electric has a 258-mile range and has better ride-and-handling behavior than the Niro EV.

The Bolt EV isn’t as roomy inside, but it’s the current champ of the non-Tesla models for range, offering 259 miles.

Finally, there’s the Tesla Model Y, which costs more than these other models but promises a future version approaching them in affordability.

Quick Specs
The Kia Niro EV gets more screen space for 2020, and it remains one of the roomiest of the affordable long-range electric vehicles.
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.
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 Nissan Leaf has outgrown its nerdy, commuter-car phase and steers now toward mainstream.
The 2020 Tesla Model Y electric crossover is the next big thing from the automaker, until the next thing.
