Gizmodo Australia has had the opportunity to review several electric vehicles over the past year. To make it easier for readers to access and compare these reviews, Gizmodo Australia has compiled a list ranking the EVs from least favorite to favorite based on personal enjoyment and preference.
At the bottom of the list is the Nissan Leaf (2023), which lags behind its competitors in terms of interior design and range. The MG ZS EV, the cheapest electric car in Australia, is let down by its limited range. The Kia EV6 is praised for its speed but criticized for its overproduced operating system.
The Audi e-tron S, while a larger car suitable for practical purposes, may not be the best choice for environmentally-conscious shoppers. The Kia Niro EV is deemed well-rounded but not as spacious as the Tesla Model 3. The BMW iX1 is a powerful and fun-to-drive car, although there are cheaper options available.
The Tesla Model Y Performance is regarded as the best version of the Model Y, but its high price may deter some buyers. The Tesla Model Y RWD, despite its spaciousness and beautiful interior, falls short in terms of minimalistic design and lack of regenerative braking adjustments. The Cupra Born is a fun hot hatch lacking some essential features.
The Hyundai Ioniq 6 competes well with upgraded versions of the Tesla Model 3, offering a beautiful exterior and comfortable interior. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 stands out in terms of aesthetics and space, although non-leather seat options would have been appreciated.
And finally, ranking as the top electric vehicle reviewed by Gizmodo Australia is the Hyundai Ioniq 7. Known for its impressive range, modern design, and comfortable seating, the Ioniq 7 is recommended for those shopping in the $70-80,000 price range.
