Electric Vehicles to Avoid and the EVs to Get Instead

Consumer Reports has thoroughly tested the models listed below to help you make an informed decision. We conduct road-test evaluations and gather data from our Annual Auto Surveys to provide insight into each model’s performance and reliability.

Based on this data, we then rate and rank each vehicle, with the highest Overall Score going to cars that excel in all areas examined. In this article, we present popular EVs in five categories and offer alternative options with higher Overall Scores.
