Our Take

Our Take

What we love

  • One of the easiest EVs to live with, thanks to the stellar Supercharger network and exceptional trip planning software
  • Great range and efficiency for the price
  • The benchmark for in-car software experience

What we don't

  • Build quality & paint quality isn't always the best. Inspect your delivery closely
  • Some frustrating exclusions: CarPlay / Android auto, blind-spot monitoring in the mirrors
  • It doesn't matter how good you are at parallel parking, you will curb rash these wheels

EV Range
Why EV Range Is Important

An EV's advertised range is just an estimate. Your mileage may vary, literally! It's important to understand the factors that can affect EV range, so you choose a car that has enough for your lifestyle and habits. Not choosing enough range for your unique needs can prove to be a frustrating and expensive mistake. If you're not sure how range works or how much you need, visit our section on identifying your EV needs.

Peak Charge Rate
Why Charge Rate Is Important

Would you rather charge for 20 minutes, or an hour? That's essentially what charge rate comes down to, how much time you'll spend at the plug. Different EVs are capable of charging at different speeds, so it's important to understand what your car's "Peak" or "Max" Charge Rate is. Charge rate is measured in Kilowatts (kW) and in 2023, the average peak charge rate is about 150kW. The fastest EVs charge at 250kW and above. Plug-In Hybrids will charge much slower. What does this mean for actual charge times? Well there's a little more to it...

MPG in hybrid mode
What is MPGe?

MPGe or Miles Per Gallon Equivalent, is a way to compare the relative efficiency of cars using different types of energy. MPGe says there is 33.7 kWh of energy in a single gallon of gas, so we'll use that equivelency to compare to cars using kWh of energy from gas, batteries, or both.

MPG in hybrid mode
If you see a number for "MPG in hybrid mode" on this vehicle page, that's the average gas mileage one can expect AFTER this vehicle's hybrid battery has been depleted. When the battery is used, a plug-in hybrid will operate more like a "full hybrid". For more on the different types of hybrids, check out this article.

Charge times

Charge times are estimated, and based on charging to 80% capacity. Real-world times may vary significantly based on available amperage and environmental conditions.
