    Hans Juergensen 3 месяца назад So the best selling model 3 isn’t on your list. Hmmmmm Hans Juergensen
  • Eric Tell
    Eric Tell 2 месяца назад @Quiet Corner Nor is the i3 that got #9. He even says that it's so new they haven't been able to test it yet.
  • Quiet Corner
    Quiet Corner 2 месяца назад (изменено) It's not available RHD. Therefore it's not ready for the UK yet.

    Info: cursos kite 4 недели назад I think the Tesla model 3 should be top of the list,
  • KiwiShoot
    KiwiShoot 3 недели назад An eye watering price. If you can afford one, chances are you didn’t really care about the running costs of a car before. And it can’t get people out of the petrol poverty trap, that they can’t afford to save for a new EV because they’re spending their daily money running their current car.
  • Freddie1980
    Freddie1980 3 недели назад @Captainric The Model 3 costs 50k......some of those are nice things to have like the 8 year warranty but as an outsider looking in the model 3 has all the same draw backs as other EV's namely my diesel car will still hold the same amount of fuel after 100k mikes but can the same be said for a model 3 or any other EV? Personally I would like to use move the hydrogen as an electric alternative.
  • Captainric
    Captainric 3 недели назад (изменено) @Freddie1980 Much much much faster charging (will go up to 250kW!), Superchargers, CCS, much better efficiency, more fun to drive, Autopilot (Hardware comes as standart), looks much better (but it's a bit unfair comparing a saloon with an SUV ), 8 Years of Warranty (for battery and drive units). The space on the model 3 maybe can't keep up to the on the e-Niro, but again, comparing a saloon with an SUV makes no sense. I mean if you need an SUV, the e-Niro probably takes the cake (at this pricepoint), but the Model 3 definetely deserves a mention in the top 3 and for sure takes the cake in the saloon car departement.
  • Freddie1980
    Freddie1980 3 недели назад Why? Because you like Tesla? At least give a reason why you disagree with the assessment by Whatcar? The Kia e-Niro £36.5K, 253 mile range and loads of space, what has the Model 3 got that makes it better then the Kia e-Niro? You would have to get a Model S with a 50Kw/h battery to be anywhere near price competitive as the Kia e-Niro which would give around 200 miles in range

  • Nelson Pagan
    Nelson Pagan Неделю назад I wonder how much he got paid
  • Lee Smith
    Lee Smith 2 месяца назад (изменено) it's a top 10. Which car exactly is it a promo for? By definition they will have more good things to say as they get to their number 1.
  • Shobhit Saxena
    Shobhit Saxena 3 месяца назад (изменено) Not a Tesla fan... But no model 3? Also Tesla should be in top with superchargers network.
  • nafreehc
    nafreehc 2 дня назад @Nelson Pagan Is that why they're rated one of the most unreliable cars as well?
  • Nelson Pagan
    Nelson Pagan Неделю назад @tubetop123 TESLA doesn't pay for advertising. That's why Media hate them.

    JayBee 2 месяца назад @Stace Karussos We have the steering wheel on the RIGHT side of the car. You are in the pockets of the French.
  • Stace Karussos
    Stace Karussos 2 месяца назад @JayBee It's taking longer than other countries because they drive on the wrong side of the road. :)
  • JayBee
    JayBee 2 месяца назад This video is aimed at the UK market in which the Model 3 is not yet available.
  • Joseph McCooey
    Joseph McCooey 4 месяца назад I think its amazing that we have a top ten EV list
  • Trigger Troll
    Trigger Troll 1 месяц назад Yes. Competition is good.

    Phil Sr 3 месяца назад Joseph McCooey I agree! I'm so sick of stinky diesel.
  • Silviu
    Silviu 4 месяца назад (изменено) The most stupid top that i've seen
  • DrScoob
    DrScoob 4 месяца назад And a bottom 2 list with no statistical information provided. These are 'paid for' promotions.
  • Gypsy2057
    Gypsy2057 3 месяца назад Without any discussion of the Tesla Model 3 this list falls short. If it's not a top ten, why?
  • Oscar Schmidt
    Oscar Schmidt 2 недели назад Don't think the Tesla 3 is available in the UK yet.
  • MrGonzonator
    MrGonzonator 3 месяца назад Not available even to order in the UK, and as yet no firm date on a right hand drive version.
  • pirouz behjat
    pirouz behjat 3 месяца назад first look was disappointing , not to consider so many different aspects. charge time , battery life , charge station availability , car safety rating, production quality , autonomous driving and many more . so it means this video made for marketing competition in a dirty way . it means other companies are looking forward to compete . that is good because it will create more force for ev transition .
  • Dean Cavander
    Dean Cavander Неделю назад I prefer the Tesla Model 3.
  • Steve Wallace
    Steve Wallace 15 часов назад Hyundai Kuna... North American car of the year. Recommended by Car and Driver magazine as one of the top 2019 cars. Also recommended by Edmunds... To quote Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, " you chose... Poorly."
  • Earl Gray
    Earl Gray 2 месяца назад (изменено) * * * it appears as if many of those commenting have not the means to ever purchase one. Oi vey !
  • W G
    W G 2 месяца назад what!??? Either this review needs to be updated or someone doesn't have their facts together.
  • Bruno Lazaro
    Bruno Lazaro 2 месяца назад @Chilukar yeap, pay 10p per mile on battery rental to save 6p per mile on running costs. Pointless.
  • Chilukar
    Chilukar 2 месяца назад I agree. Recommending leasing battery? Yeah, let's take all the advantages of cheap running and get rid of them spending all you would have saved and more on rental batteries that will lower the resale value. Oh and limit your mileage to boot. Battery rental was a thing when people thought they would only last 5 years before being replaced. It makes no sense now we know most EVs will last at least 10 years with 10-15% degradation.
  • beefchuck
    beefchuck 3 недели назад Still too expensive with range compromises. Not ready for mainstream yet unless consumers willing to pay the premium.
  • jaro essa
    jaro essa 2 недели назад Hear, Hear!
  • Gavin Davies
    Gavin Davies 2 месяца назад I like the Jaguar, perfect for a middle aged lout to grow old distressfully.
  • Akmal Mansurov
    Akmal Mansurov 3 месяца назад i-pace's range not even close to 300km.. are you making review upon car's booklets and catalogs? Make review in real conditions..
  • Roberto Tomás
    Roberto Tomás 5 дней назад Nelson Pagan I am actually having trouble understanding your question. Doesn’t seem to be whole. This review was done by people who did test range in the actual experience of driving those vehicles and they say so in the video you don’t need to ask me.
  • Nelson Pagan
    Nelson Pagan Неделю назад @Roberto Tomás who is testing this e- cars? You or the manufacturer?
  • Freddie1980
    Freddie1980 3 недели назад Dude pay attention. He said at the start of the video he would quote the REAL WORLD range and not the spec from the cars handbook.
  • Roberto Tomás
    Roberto Tomás 3 недели назад (изменено) From other sources I found out a bit of the answer to the question. Both Kia and Hyundai use a different, "worst case scenario" system (in terms of temperature, stagnation, etc) to predict EPA eMPG and range. presumably that also happens in Europe. this still doesn’t answer why these trucklike crossover SUVs are doing so well with such small batteries; But I know I’ve seen several sources confirming that they always get better range than listed
  • Roberto Tomás
    Roberto Tomás 1 месяц назад (изменено) They don’t go by the numbers published. they actually do their own testing, that’s what they mean by real world. Having said that I also doubt the ranges, particularly of the Kia and Hyundai. I hope they come back and give more detail. Why would a Model S need roughly 30kwh more physical battery to achieve the same range as those SUVs? Other reviewer’s from more reputable companies such as Top Gear suggest that the Model X 100D and the Jaguar I Pace S have the same actual range.
  • M A
    M A 1 месяц назад It's just over 250 miles in real world conditions, so yes 300km is entirely accurate.
  • Victor Seal
    Victor Seal 3 месяца назад If you lived here in Canada any vehicle below a 200 mile range would not have an adequate scope. I have just returned from a test drive in a Kona EV and I’m ordering one. My preference would be a T Model Y, but I need a new car now. Where is the Model 3 in the list !?
  • Trigger Troll
    Trigger Troll 1 месяц назад Yes be careful in Canada. Range can be cut in half in January and February.
  • Victor Seal
    Victor Seal 2 месяца назад C — Of course, my mistake.
  • C —
    C — 2 месяца назад Victor Seal model 3 isn't available in the UK(?)
  • Federico Pittaluga
    Federico Pittaluga 5 дней назад The jag is one of the worst, gigantic battery pack and so-so range... No self driving option... Sure is no better than a model s or a model 3.. anyway I agree with you the Kia Niro is, right now the best electric car if you don't want to spend all your money!
