Best Electric Cars for 2019 & 2020 ― Top-Rated EV Cars and SUVs


WILL KAUFMAN: Hey
Elena, when is getting charged with multiple
batteries a good thing? ELENA SCHERR: No– no– no– no. WILL KAUFMAN: What? ELENA SCHERR: No. WILL KAUFMAN: What? ELENA SCHERR: No, we
are not doing this. We are not doing the electricity
jokes in the EV video. WILL KAUFMAN: Guess
what, it’s too late, we’re already rolling. Let’s talk EVs. [MUSIC PLAYING] ELENA SCHERR: Electric
cars are good now. Did you get the memo? Yeah, they have enough
range and they’re available in enough
price ranges that they’re a viable alternative
for most commuters. Imagine never having to
go to a gas station again. Today, we’re rounding
up the best EVs so you don’t have to
go charging in blind. Oh, man now I’m doing it. WILL KAUFMAN: Gotcha. Everything we’re
going to talk about has been through our full
testing and rating process, which you can see more about– [BUBBLES POPPING] There’s a link. There’s a link– ELENA SCHERR: Somewhere. We put a link in. WILL KAUFMAN: This list
includes everything we’ve tested up until now. Our ratings are
updated in real-time. So if you don’t see the
vehicle you’re looking for, make sure to check edmunds.com
to see if it’s there. ELENA SCHERR: All right, let’s
actually talk about the cars. Tesla may have captured
consumers imaginations with its futuristic
and pricey vehicles, but there are affordable
EVs out there that cost less than $40,000. When the Kona electric
hit the market, it immediately became
our favorite new EV. Why? Well, because it’s
just a car, but better. You get a comfy
practical hatchback with Hyundai’s easy infotainment
and useful driver aids. Only it’s faster and more
efficient than the gas models. In our testing, the Kona EV was
more than a half second quicker to 60 mile per hour than
its turbocharged sibling. And all that power is
available right off the line. So you don’t have to wait
for a turbo to spool up or a transmission to wake up. WILL KAUFMAN: We picked a Kona
EV up for our long term fleet. I really enjoy
commuting in ours. I think it’s the stereo. It’s better than
most in the class. Although, that rear seat is kind
of tight for big infant seats. Rear seat infant
accommodations aside, we liked the Kona
electric so much we gave it our Editor’s Choice
Award for the top EV of 2019. ELENA SCHERR: Good job, Kona. WILL KAUFMAN: This
is one electric that won’t be wearing
the Kona shame. [MUSIC PLAYING] When it launched,
the Chevrolet Bolt leapfrogged the competition
with its 238 miles of range, quick acceleration,
and approachable price. Even with more competitors
on the market now, the Bolts strengths mean
it’s worth checking out if you’re shopping for an EV. ELENA SCHERR: The
Bolt isn’t perfect. The interior is
kind of plastic-y. And it has a unique infotainment
system that is just not as good as Chevy’s norm. The lightweight and firm
seats aren’t very adjustable. And some people
around the office felt they were a deal breaker. But your mileage
wattage may vary. WILL KAUFMAN: We put
30,000 miles on a Bolt as part of our long
term testing program. And its nimbleness
and small size made it a solid choice
for the daily commute. ELENA SCHERR: One thing
that’s awesome about the Bolt is its one pedal driving,
where lifting off the gas pedal causes the electric motors to
slow the car down so you don’t even have to touch the brake,
and you’re recapturing energy while it happens. That is a neat EV trick. For 2020, it offers
259 miles of range. Although, those few extra
miles aren’t enough to help it nab the top EV
spot from Hyundai. You can find out why on our full
video comparison of those two cars. WILL KAUFMAN: The Volkswagen
e-Golf, or e-Golf, as no one calls
it, is practically a dinosaur in the EV world,
having come out way back in 2015. We like the e-Gulf for
being, well, a golf– a likeable small car
with comfortable seats and Volkswagen
driving dynamics that make it more pleasant
than competitors from behind the wheel. For 2019, the e-Golf is
up to 125 miles of range. That’s well behind
top competitors, but still enough to get most
commuters through their day. You also get standard car
play and Android Auto, and a generous trunk
with folding seats that give the e-Golf
plenty of space for cargo. ELENA SCHERR: The e-Golf is
the affordable EV that feels the most like a regular car. But it’s not as torque and
quick as, say, the Kona, and it’s definitely
down on range. WILL KAUFMAN: If you’re willing
to skip the bells and whistles, the e-Golf’s base price
is pretty affordable. But you’ll have to pay extra
for things like active safety features. If you’re looking for a
friendly and familiar way to get into electric
motoring, the e-Golf is worth checking out. ELENA SCHERR: Nissan
doesn’t get enough credit for making the first
successful affordable EV. In fact, the Leaf is still the
top selling EV in the world. The current generation
Leaf introduced for 2018 is quieter, more comfortable,
and more rewarding to drive. It offers plenty of range. WILL KAUFMAN: The
Leaf’s steering wheel doesn’t telescope, making
the car a little less comfortable for taller drivers. And steering feels artificial. But overall, the Leaf has far
more strengths than weaknesses, especially if you don’t need
the chart topping range offered by the Kona or the
Bolt. And if you do, the Leaf plus variant
amps up the range to a competitive 226 miles. ELENA SCHERR: Kilowatt
hours, not amps. WILL KAUFMAN: Stay
in your lane, Scherr. ELENA SCHERR: Hey Will,
are you tired of hearing about the Edmunds long
term test fleet yet? WILL KAUFMAN: How
could anyone ever get tired of hearing about
such a valuable resource for shoppers and
enthusiasts alike? ELENA SCHERR:
Good, because we’ve had both generations
of Leaf in our garage. WILL KAUFMAN: And the
second generation really was a big improvement. Even though it was
slower, I liked commuting in the Leaf a
bit more than the Bolt just for the seats. Although for someone
my size, it felt a bit like driving a toy car. ELENA SCHERR: Will is
actually a lot taller than me. And I am standing
on a box right now. The Hyundai Ioniq electric
has a low cost of entry. Yet, it offers all
the user-friendly tech we expect from a Hyundai. It also has the most
efficient electric drive train on the market per the EPAs
miles per gallon equivalent– MPGE. Which means you’ll pay
less to keep it charged. The Ioniq isn’t the
best driving EV, and the rear seat is not
particularly comfortable, nor roomy. But it gets a shout
out for offering a lot of features at
an appealing price and for being so efficient. If you want to go green and
you want to go all the way, the Ioniq electric
is the current champ. WILL KAUFMAN:
Luxury electric cars aren’t just about adding
luxury features and performance to the EV formula. They’re also about
pushing boundaries. Luxury brands work hard to show
off their visions of the future and attempt new and
younger buyers like you. [MUSIC PLAYING] ELENA SCHERR: The
Tesla Model S might be the oldest Tesla
in production, but it is still our favorite of
the company’s three offerings. And it is only now seeing
serious direct competition. It combines a roomy attractive
cabin with astonishing speed and outstanding range. Depending on how it’s
equipped, the Model S can be staggeringly
quick in a straight line. The price tag, however,
is equally intimidating. And compared to similarly priced
internal combustion sedan, it feels a bit unpolished
and lacks some of the luxury features like massaging seats. But if you’re after
something with a Tesla badge or serious bragging rights,
the S is the best of the bunch. WILL KAUFMAN: You know, we’ve
owned all 3 Tesla models. So you can find out what
they’re like to live with in our long term blog. In fact, I did the math
and we’ve given Tesla a total of $295,700. ELENA SCHERR: I mean,
Elon should really send us a thank you note. WILL KAUFMAN: The BMW i3
does have the shortest range of any of the luxury
electrics on this list with just 153 miles. But it does offer the
option of a range extender that gets you up to 200 miles. The i3 is a unique little car. From its funky looks outside
to its truly special interior, we think the i3 has one of the
best interiors on the road. It’s stylish and modern
with novel materials, but it’s still user-friendly. And the i3 drives the way
you’d expect a BMW to drive. ELENA SCHERR: Between
the rear suicide doors, big wheels with skinny tires,
and that dramatic interior, the i3 really isn’t like
anything else on the road. Our long term i3–
yeah, we had one– made a great city run about. And if you’re looking for
something a little different from your EV, the
i3 is a standout. WILL KAUFMAN: The Tesla Model 3
encountered some early growing pains. And the elusive $35,000
model didn’t exactly live up to its advanced billing. But if you don’t mind
the teething issues, you’ll find the Model 3 a
remarkably sporty electric car with a healthy amount of
space for its small footprint, and an interior that pushes
the definition of modern. ELENA SCHERR: I’m going to
be the Tesla complainer. Oh, no. I’m not a big fan of having
all the cars controllers go through that big
center touch screen. And the displays
sort of made me feel like I was driving in
a room with someone who was playing a video game. WILL KAUFMAN: It’s
definitely more distracting to adjust vehicle settings,
even simple things like adjusting your mirrors. But the Model 3 performed
so well in our testing that we had to give it its due. In fact in a recent head
to head comparison test, our own Carlos Lago said
that it was more fun to drive than the new BMW 3 Series. ELENA SCHERR: I’m not
going to argue with Carlos. The I-Pace is an
impressive machine that exudes style,
poise, comfort, and technical sophistication. The all wheel drive
electric SUV delivers plenty of range and good utility. But Jaguar is relative
inexperience with EV technology results in surprisingly
high electricity consumption and a lack of
smoothness when braking at low speeds. One of the things I personally
liked about the I-Pace was how it melded a sci-fi
future with classic design, especially in the interior. It’s one of the prettiest
EVs out there even if it isn’t the most efficient. WILL KAUFMAN: This is
also one of those cars where we’ve seen some
really strong discounts. So you might be able to
find a deal on it too. [MUSIC PLAYING] The Tesla Model X is currently
the only electric vehicle you can get with
three rows of seating. It also has the most
personality of any Tesla, which is a mixed bag. The Falcon wing doors
and panoramic windshield set it apart. But these features could also
be viewed as gimmicks that don’t really add functionality. ELENA SCHERR: Either way, the
Model X’s firm to rough ride doesn’t do it any favors. Still, there is no denying
that this is one quick SUV. Our long term Model X
launched to 60 miles per hour in a truly ludicrous
3.5 seconds. And you can get all
the futuristic tech that make Tesla Model special. But there are so many
new EVs on the way. WILL KAUFMAN: Volkswagen’s
got the ID coming, which is a whole new
electric platform for them. And Ford says they’re making
both an SUV and a pickup truck. ELENA SCHERR: Yeah,
they partnered up with Rivian, who are making
a truck and a large SUV. There’s also the Mercedes
Benz EQC and Audi e-tron. WILL KAUFMAN: We have an e-tron
coming in for testing soon. So keep your eyes on our
electric car rankings to see how it stacks
up against the Model X. ELENA SCHERR: For
our sports car fans, Porsche just
unveiled the Taycan, a pricey high performance sedan
that could give the Tesla Model S a run for its money. I mean, not like directly
dollar for dollar for the money. Anyway, it’s really
fast, it’s really cool. We think people are
going to like it. We just had a chance to
check it out in person and we were pretty impressed. WILL KAUFMAN: And
there’s even more. The Polestar 2 looks great. The new generation Kia Soul
is getting a new EV version. And of course, Tesla has
the model Y coming, along with the new Roadster– ELENA SCHERR: Roadster. WILL KAUFMAN: And
their own pickup truck. ELENA SCHERR: It feels
like new electric cars and new EV technology are
being announced every day. So stay tuned to
Edmunds for news and reviews on the latest EVs. You can also read full
reviews of every car that we talked
about in this video and find great deals on
electric vehicles near you. WILL KAUFMAN: Did we
mention our long term blog? ELENA SCHERR: Shockingly, yes. WILL KAUFMAN: Whomp. Whomp. [MUSIC PLAYING]

  1. Edmunds says:

    Which EV would you buy and why? We often talk about range when it comes to electric cars. How many miles do you drive in a day?

  2. Marc Spunt says:

    The Bolt really was decent, but the seats were terrible, they are too thin width wise and dig into your thighs instantly, you know, unless maybe you are very short and thin. 14 months until I get my Model Y, I cannot wait! great vid!

  3. quietguy says:

    I think Elana is sexy as sin…

  4. WillerNK says:

    EVs are still double the price of comparable ICE cars and have half the real-world range or less, and they still have agonizingly long charging times for long distance traveling, even with fast chargers. What's more, the business case still fails with virtually every manufacturer selling them at losses. We aren't anywhere close to EVs becoming mainstream. Really, they're just novelties and statements, and they're sold to create "green" halos for manufacturers.

  5. FSAPO says:

    Étron means "turd" in French.
    Audi, in their infinite wisdom, kept the E-tron name for the French market.
    Fitting, parce que cette voiture est un étron.

  6. Ancient Mysteries & Modern Innovations says:

    Save us, Elon.

  7. CapN 22 says:

    The Tesla Model 3 SR+ starts at $38,990. I've run the numbers… Turns out $38,990 is < $40,000. It is understood that Edmunds is a "Pay to Play" publisher. But really, a piece on EVs that cost less than $40,000 and doesn't mention, at least in passing, the Model 3SR+? Why should anyone take you seriously?

    EV review 101 for dummies (items to mention, beyond standard review topics):

    1) Range – Be sure to specify EPA or WLTP. EPA is more accurate, but still… your mileage may vary.
    2) Charging options – Both AC and DC options and limitations. Provide estimates for time to charge. Bonus points if you provide estimates for time to charge to a specific number of miles gained over time. — (percentage gain doesn't mean as much because battery size and drivetrain efficiency vary).
    3) Charging infrastructure available to vehicle.
    4) BMS and TMS review

    Journalist integrity can be restored. I don't know what life choices led you to work at Edmunds. But I believe you have it in you to do better in the future.

  8. seinundzeiten says:

    Honda e is the best…

  9. Starship Driver says:

    Only Tesla can drive itself in the parking lot.

  10. turbomopie says:

    I’m a Porsche guy and somehow this entire video felt like a “don’t buy a Tesla ad”

  11. Dave Roush says:

    I just don’t see why auto manufacturers just give us an EV option on all models with comparable pricing to ICE drivetrains.

  12. Bill Cichoke says:

    Still too expensive, still require too many sacrifices to be viable, still not supported as well, still to electronicized to be as reliable as ICE.

  13. Diesel says:

    Just subbed I cant wait for that new skoda electric car!

  14. Nunofyour beesiness says:

    I'm waiting for the Chinese made Volvo.

  15. Tim Lucas says:

    A Kona EV starts at $37k. A Tesla Model 3 is $39k. That would be the BEST two thousand ever spent!!

  16. CYAnomo says:

    You can purchase the model 3 SR for under 36k before incentives and fuel savings. Your review seems deliberate in its exclusion of the Model 3, probably because it is so far above and beyond the competitors that you are pandering to.

  17. LionKingGamer says:

    You deliberately excluded the Model 3 which shows how trash you are as a reviewing company lmao.

  18. Alexandre Svergoun says:

    Add Tesla Model 3 please

  19. YarblekRW says:

    Forget something?

  20. Ryan Schilling says:

    What a joke of a video… No Model 3. Unsubscribing

  21. Yasin says:

    Please check your facts before posting a video next time. Base Model 3 is not over $40k.

  22. Jonathan Matey says:

    The lack of knowledge regarding Tesla at Edmunds at its finest here (I hope and not some sinister plot to undermine Tesla). Model 3 STARTS AT $39,990! Come on. Y’all should know better than to over look this fact.

  23. Paul Sasso says:

    I'm sensing absolute terror of the Tesla Model 3 in this video. Who is edmonds shilling for? The 3 gets rave reviews from all the other automotive press, but Edmunds here starts out their review with negatives on the 3 (and the X). (Even their own reviewer said it was more fun drive than the BMW 3 series https://youtu.be/xpFe8k1vjcg ) The 3 has record setting EV sales and will soon surpass the Leaf in overall lifetime sales, after just a few years on sale compared to the Leaf's nine years. In 2018, the Model 3 was the fifth best selling car in the US, for God's sake! (beaten only by the Camry, Civic, Accord, and Corolla). Edmunds' shilling, in this review, is transparent and lame. Also, the Model 3 should have been included in the under $40K segment. Lame Lame Lame!

  24. nichelous music says:

    Tesla and Tesla again

  25. nichelous music says:

    You people are a big hypocrite against Tesla shame on you

  26. Heinz Knalltüte says:

    Tesla Model 3 Standard & Standard Range+ anyone??
    Smells like a paid and therefore biased advertisement!

  27. A E says:

    Model 3 is the best car. Everybody knows it. Except those 2 bobos from Edmunds 😉

  28. fitzy271 says:

    Edmunds: Model 3 doesn't make the cut for top 5 EV's under 40k
    Literally everyone with a brain: wtf?

  29. ponybottle says:

    This is a dishonest presentation – Teslas are also in that price bracket and are a FAR superior machine.

  30. Shenghong Zhang says:

    Wow, if you think almost 33k for a 125mile range e-golf is a good buy..
    What about the Model 3 with at least DOUBLE the range and DOUBLE the power, AND autopilot. for $6k more?
    It's better be on the "No on can math" list.

  31. Laurence Jenner says:

    What a laughable list without Model 3. If this is a list of the cheapest EVs then fine, but if you want BEST VALUE then you have to include Model 3. If you want the most dominant by volume & sales you have to include Model 3. This video has ZERO credibility right now.

  32. Steven Sit says:

    Anyone buying any one of the top list is going to miss out all the great things about owning a Model 3 SR+. What a terrible video from Edmunds.

  33. Fish Mann says:

    Edmunds has no respectability whatsoever.
    The Tesla Model 3 is under 40K and is much better than the EV's listed here.

  34. Magnus Hüttenberend says:

    Who left the Tesla out? You, you, you!

  35. hotlobstahvids says:

    Sad when Edmunds doesn't understand EVs. How is the general public going to be educated when automotive journalists are so clueless? You can't talk about EVs and make recommendations without giving equal time to the charging infrastructure. Take any of these recommended EVs for a cross country trip(or across state for that matter). Spoiler Alert: You can't. There is one brand which honestly blows all these EVs absolutely out of the water AND has the all important reliable, fast, and numerous Super Chargers across the world: Tesla. Oh, and the Model 3 starts under 40k.

  36. dupont emile says:

    now you know wich chanel you can trust

  37. Nick Kaiser says:

    I guess if you don't buy ads with Edmunds you don't make a car….

    Just based on the supercharging network Tesla is the only EV you should buy.

  38. russtaFPV says:

    You guys haven’t got a clue?

  39. Cesar Trujillo says:

    Why manufactures still selling gas cars? These are all great options. It looks like the only one not suited for warm weather climates is that Leaf. How bad of an option is the Leaf in warm climates especially considering it’s been getting much hotter everywhere? I see used Leafs going for under 5k. I see Tesla charging stations everywhere when I travel but other Evs look like they charge in places with only one pump. Why? I think I could charge at home from my regular wall outlet since I only go 17miles to work round trip. I also want something that is future proof. Is that a Tesla because they get updates? I saw a used model 3 with some light cosmetic damage for 20k. Is it 4x better than the Leaf? I don’t care about cosmetic issues. I just want it to run a long time here in Phoenix.

  40. Andras Soltesz says:

    Downvoted for not including the Tesla Model 3.

  41. Krista Hagfors says:

    Dishonest video by Edmunds…once again. The Tesla Model 3 is less than $40k and these people clearly lie and hide that FACT. What a joke of an organization Edmunds has become.

  42. Steven Iams says:

    No Tesla, your bias is showing.

  43. Jack Gryboski says:

    This video fucking sucks

  44. cdert90 says:

    Where is the model 3

  45. Kevin Haberman says:

    Has anyone noticed they left out the model 3? I wonder who sponsored this "list"

  46. Martin Lavoie says:

    Where's the 38k Tesla ? It's by far the best option under 40k.
    Edmunds is not a trustworthy source for car information anymore.

  47. BeeCeeNJ says:

    This is a crap article, highly critical of Tesla. “Oh no, I’m gonna be a Tesla complainer” the mindless reviewer states. Go home dum dum. Really, if you are that incapable of using the highly intuitive interface Tesla offers, then WALK.

  48. Ian Reid says:

    hey Edmund's you know it we know it and we know you know it. Tesla is THE BEST affordable under $40,000.. question is as an American company why are you disrespecting another American company with the best product in favor of foreign country products that are inferior or are you really that misinformed which means no one should trust what you say in either case

  49. Ian Reid says:

    Hey Edmonds you SUCK.

  50. Consumer Tool Reviews says:

    Just get a Model 3 Tesla

  51. w5monkey says:

    Hmmm list seems incomplete for some reason… Almost like it was sponsored by the Russian petro state.

  52. Nathan Shih says:

    And that is how you lose subscribers. Everyone and their mother knows that the Tesla Model 3 should be the only car in this list. Won’t be watching this channel again. Lol

  53. Antonio Delgado says:

    Tesla Model 3 SR+ blows all of these and is under 40k. Lost all respect for Edmunds with this awful video.

  54. 2WhiteAndNerdy says:

    Yeah, good luck finding a Kona EV out there at dealers. Waaaaaaaay easier to find a Tesla.

  55. Eleanna Kokkinou says:

    Looking for EV charging cables? Have a look here: https://evchargeplus.com

  56. Mark Iliff says:

    Stilted banter

  57. Damp potato #36 says:

    “Tesla might have captured the imagination of consumers with its futuristic and pricey vehicles”

    Model 3 has entered the chat

  58. Sean Dubits says:

    The best thing about the Bolt is 1 pedal driving?! You mean the feature at EVERY EV has naturally?! They just cant admit how ass the Bolt is.

  59. Skyler Holman says:

    Model 3 minimal interior design is my favorite part 🙂

  60. Ted Joseph says:

    Going to wait for 2 years to move into EV vehicles. Tesla, Hyundai, BMW, VW, GM, Ford, etc are all coming into the EV market… Lets see what happens!

  61. 3DFX says:

    Whaatt?? You just forgot to mention Polestar 2 … ??? 👎👎👎 – Back to your Research Boards!!!👍👍👍

  62. Rick9482 says:

    There's a lot of bullshit being thrown around in this video.
    $37,500 for a Leaf Plus vs a base Model 3. Yeah right, if you idiots thinks this makes any sense whatsoever then we're done Edmonds.

  63. Steve Elliott says:

    Really don’t like these hosts.

  64. Mango Ginger says:

    Went to the 2019 March Vancouver International Auto show and looked at nearly all EV's Tested the new Nissan Leaf and New SX Touring EV Niro on the road. The Kona luggage space is smaller and the wheel base is shorter. The Niro looks more premium and smoother ride due to seeing my relatives new Kona and the leg room in the back is more spacious. Didn't like the Leaf because no thermal cooling for the batteries – the steering wheel can not move in and out for different height people and the charging plug is Chademo which are being phased out.

  65. Sean Martin says:

    I agree that the Tesla 3 interior design is not so good. I would say it's garbage, and a deal breaker. It also doesn't fit a tall person like me very well. Maybe the Model Y will fix the latter part.

  66. Kathy Fann says:

    I chose the Nissan leaf plus. I really love that car. Great all around range and enjoyable experience

  67. Tag Makers Pet Tags says:

    Your jokes are SHOCKINGLY bad… in fact reVOLTing. They are not CURRENT, and you will find a lot of RESISTANCE to them. Sorry that I have to AMPlify some words, but I am trying to CONDUCT myself in a decent way.

  68. Dave Riley says:

    Not impressed with these two presenters. But I do agree with Elana, 8:42, about the Model 3's center screen. I've owned three of Tesla's model offerings, a Roadster, a couple of S and the 3. The 3 has got the stats and the efficiency and it's priced right, nicely equipped at less than 40k USD, but the interface doesn't do it for me. I went back to the S. 2- and 3-year old, low-mileage used Model S cost about the same as a new Model 3, and give so much more value and satisfaction. Try it, you'll like it.

  69. Dave Riley says:

    Hard to believe the eGolf made any top 5 list. VW was probably surprised, too. 3:55 "[range] is well behind competitors, but still enough to get most commuters through their day." Talk about damning a product with faint praise! 33k USD and no range?!! This is not a serious EV, and like the Fiat EV, will depreciate like a falling rock. Inadequate range is most people's number one reason for not entering the EV space. The best plug-in hybrids – Volt and Prius – get most commuters through their day as EVs, then keep going.

  70. Dick Ritchie says:

    Nice advertisement for EV’s. But I can tell you, the leaf and the I-pace are junk. The best one for the money is the Bolt.

  71. Zeek Desai says:

    This is complete BS. Tesla model 3 is the best selling EV in the world. Dont trust this publication

  72. Sudeepta Ghosh says:

    Did not make a single comment on auto pilot or supercharging network. Why?

  73. Bad Vegan says:

    This is irresponsible. Recommending outdated ev's like the Golf and i3 that can't squeak out even 150 miles range.
    The fact is, this is evolving tech and there are dead end vehicles already littering the market. Edmunds would clearly rather shill than give consumers honest feedback.
    Come on Edmunds, people are spending their HARD EARNED MONEY trying to do the right thing! BE HONEST!

  74. Tony Swann says:

    Where is the Kia Niro EV, the best of the Best. these ratings are Bullshit.

  75. Marcel Laurin says:

    what about EV Renault Zoe?

  76. Tony S says:

    You did not cover the Kia e-Niro or the Audi e-Tran, and you want credibility?!

  77. ilaphroaig says:

    Too bad the Tesla's are all so ugly. Specs are great, but please design something nice.

  78. jerry winsler says:

    They keep saying "affordable" for vehicles over 30k. That's not affordable for the vast majority of the general public you snooty
    as-es

  79. Christina Delrio says:

    😗😗

  80. Dazraf says:

    Tesla's the best.

  81. Kenny Boyert says:

    I’ve had my model 3 for 9000 miles and it’s the best car available hands down. The range is nearly double what some of these “top” EVs. I’m all for other companies making EVs and I’d love to see more and more made but let’s not down play the company pushing ALL of this innovation

    The only joke in this video is the list, WTF mate where is the Tesla Model 3 at #1 because these cars SUCK! How does it feel to be a HUGE SELLOUT to the ICE auto industry?!?

  83. UltraStoat says:

    How to destroy your credibility in 12 minutes. Unbelievable that you’d exclude the BEST SELLING EV on planet earth which can be purchased for under $40,000 which is the model 3. You. Are. Garbage.

  84. Francesco3000 says:

    Hey Edmond the Tesla Model 3 cost $37000. And yet you have not mentioned it.

  85. Chris Estabon says:

    Tesla didn't capture their imaginations. They formed it. They built the market.

  86. bowblizz says:

    Tesla doesn’t just sell you a car. They also include the latest software updates plus there vehicle security systems not only the best but, can even catch a criminal act and, warn.

  87. Greg Johnson says:

    Loved this summary, but was annoyed by repeatedly mispronouncing Hyundai. It rhymes with Sunday. It's not hund eye.

  88. A F says:

    this list sounds fair! wait… where's the Model 3? mmmm

  89. Fazal Rabbi says:

  90. ManateeWithAHat says:

    Edmunds, when you're gonna do another Electric Vehicles Real World Test?

  93. ابو حيدر آل شاهين says:

    I couldn't finish the video because of the very stupid and very lame Jokes.

  94. Brett Heppes says:

    Would anyone here wait for the VW ID. series of cars over the next 3 years? Not just the Micro Bus ID. Buzz, but the ID.Vizzion, the ID. Crozz, and rumored to be more in coming years.

  95. Adriano Pereira says:

    I like your jokes, but never tell a portuguese: – "Good job Kona!"

  96. Frank Short says:

    What did you think about the Kia eNiro?

  97. Billblom says:

    The Leaf is now under big lawsuits down-under because of battery expense.. like after 3 attempts to get dropping range fixed, the Leaf came up with a 33000 bill for a new battery. Design problems: no water cooling on the first 3 years or so of prodction, so that kills the battery in warm climates.

  98. Milk Hsieh says:

    No Honda E in the report?

  99. S.L.S says:

    This is just another useless video about electric cars that never mention the major problem with those cars. The problem is that the US electrical grid is sooooo out of date that it has to buy electricity from Canada in order to meet Americans current needs. What happens when many more people decide the price drop on electric cars has made them affordable to more people so they buy one. The US electrical grid will have constant blackouts across the country and eventually it will simply collapse. Lets talk about that before you talk about which electric car is better. It's called putting the horse before the cart.
