Kia Niro EV
Motortrend says the Kia Niro EV makes it easier than ever to switch to an electric car because it is surprisingly fun to drive, unlike a lot of slow, lethargic hybrids backed by continuously variable transmissions. The Niro EV that we test drove was good for 201 hp and 291 lb-ft of torque. It nets an EPA-estimated range of 239 miles, among the best in its class. Pricing starts at under $39K, but our tester with Premium package adding xenon headlights, a sunroof, leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, and eight-speaker premium Harman Kardon sound system, wireless charging, and a 110-volt power outlet had a price tag just topping $47K.
