For a world so obsessed with electric cars, we certainly don’t spend a lot of time talking about anything other than Tesla or maybe Rivian. The truth is, there are a lot of electric cars buzzing around the world, and according to Consumer Reports, neither Tesla nor Rivian makes the best. Kia digs deep to rebrand the Korean brand into a modern and sleek, largely electric car company. Still, it feels a little surprising to find that Consumer Reports labeled the 2022 Kia Niro Electric as the best electric car they’ve tested yet.
