These two Korean electric crossovers are similar in many ways. So, what sets them apart and which one should you buy?
Every person has a different budget and individual priorities. So, to choose which car is best for someone is not really possible. Regardless, shopping for a new car is not easy. You have to do your homework to make an educated buying decision. Comparisons like this recent video featuring the Hyundai Kona Electric and Kia Niro EV should prove very helpful for those in the market for a new EV.
Both the Kona Electric and Niro EV have a 64-kWh battery pack. According to the EPA, the Kona has a range of 258 miles compared to the Niro's 239. The Kona Electric is also a bit more efficient, however, the EPA estimates that over a five-year period it will only save you about $250 in "fuel" costs over the Niro EV.
The primary reason for the above is that the Niro is simply a bit larger. As expected, it also costs more. The Niro EV has a starting MSRP of $38,500, while the Kona Electric starts at $36,950. You can use our Compare EVs guide to research these and other competing models in more detail.
