Buying guide: Three EV range kings
The Tesla Model 3 is by far the most popular EV across the globe. In the U.S., it accounts for about half of all plug-in cars sold thus far this year. The car has a starting price of $35,400 and offers 220 miles of range. Longer range versions — up to 310 miles — are available if you're willing to pay more.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV came to market ahead of the Model 3. Its launch was highly celebrated, however, while GM continues to sell about 1,000 per month nationwide, it's not nearly as popular as some had anticipated. The Bolt has a starting MSRP of $36,620 and offers 238 miles of range. A new, 2020 model provides an additional ~20 miles of range.
The Hyundai Kona Electric is arguably the most popular EV to come to market since the Model 3. Sadly, however, its sales don't reflect that since it's only available in select U.S. states and has proven difficult for many people to acquire. It's priced at $36,950 and has a range of 258 miles.
As you can see, these three EVs are priced about the same and offer a similar overall range. In addition, they're all quite practical due to their roomy interiors and commendable cargo space.
