The best and worst electric cars 2019
Electric cars are growing in popularity, and no wonder: the best are quiet, cheap to run and smooth to drive. But which are the bright sparks to consider – and which are the loose connections?...
4. Hyundai Kona Electric
The powerful 64kWh Kona Electric blasts range anxiety out of the water with a real-world range of around 259 miles between charges – the best performance of any car we've tested. Even the less powerful 39kWh version manages a respectable 158 miles, which should be plenty for most commutes. Add in the fact that the Kona Electric is reasonably priced and has great acceleration, and it’s no surprise we rate it as one of the best electric cars on the market.
3. Jaguar I-Pace
The I-Pace SUV is Jaguar’s first electric car, and can drive for more than 250 miles between charges. It can also be charged to 80% of capacity in just 90 minutes, and its futuristic interior features two 12.0in screens and another 5.5in screen for climate settings. Add in fun handling, and it's a very appealing option.
2. Kia e-Niro
The e-Niro banishes range anxiety with a real-world range of 253 miles; not many drivers will want to do more than that in a day. It's also well equipped, plus it has strong acceleration and more room for passengers and luggage than similarly-priced rivals. All those attributes, combined with very competitive pricing, helped make it our 2019 Car of the Year.
