Quick Specs
7.0
The 2020 Nissan Leaf has outgrown its nerdy, commuter-car phase and steers now toward mainstream.
6.8
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.
6.8
At under $30,000 after tax credits, the 2020 Hyundai Kona Electric is a great-value, high-range EV… even if it isn’t available everywhere.
7.3
The 2019 Tesla Model 3 is a glimpse of the future in many ways; but it’s far from perfect.
