Tesla Model 3
Allegedly the one to beat, though the Model 3 isn't faultless.
Tesla's Model 3 has sold so fast since it arrived here that it's giving hot cakes a bad name. You can see why - Tesla keeps tweaking and refining the car's batteries and electric motors to squeeze ever more range out, and at the same time has been chopping the price to the point where a basic Model 3 is now one of the best-value EVs of them all. The mid-priced long-range model is the best for peace of mind on long journeys, while the Performance version can take apart most Porsches or Ferraris in a straight line. Build quality is still an issue, and the single big screen can be fiddly to use, although a new and updated version - distinguished by its new front end - promises a little more refinement with better materials.
