Oh how rapidly the set of affordable electric vehicles is expanding.
When the Niro EV was introduced in 2019, there were only a few small crossovers with a rated range of more than 200 miles and prices starting under $40,000.
But with the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Volkswagen ID.4, in base versions, in that price range, it’s all soon going to change.
The Nissan Leaf Plus 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 Chevrolet Bolt EV is the current champ of the non-Tesla models for range, offering 259 miles.
The Tesla Model Y is larger and more expensive, but it opens the door to even more range and the convenience of Tesla’s Supercharger network.
