Meanwhile, e-tron is one of the sharpest debuts we’ve seen from luxury brands ready to compete with Tesla. This model has a starting price of $74,800 and will debut in the U.S. by spring of next year.
Kia Niro EV
- Range: 240 miles
- Arrives: Early 2019
With the Kia Niro EV, consumers will get an electric crossover for a much wider audience than most of the upcoming models. Using the same platform as the Niro hybrid, the EV will have a range of 240 miles and solid power specs, including 201 horsepower.
Kia has already started selling this model in Korea, and it will arrive in the U.S. by early 2019. Given its impressive range (better than the Chevy Bolt EV) and crossover styling, a low price point could make the Niro EV a hit. Kia will have most of its $7,500 tax credits available for buyers when it arrives early next year.
