“Our team of experts have been driving and reviewing significantly more EVs as automakers roll out new models and differentiate their lineups with more electric and hybrid models.

Cars.com’s 2023 Top EV Picks, which can be found in the Cars.com EV Buying Guide are:

  • Family EV — 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5: The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a compact SUV with much more space inside than meets the eye — there’s room to carry a family and haul all the stuff that comes with them. Inside, parents will appreciate the storage nooks, perfect for stashing snacks or devices. For those with kids in car seats, the Ioniq 5’s backseat easily accommodates two car seats thanks to its abundant legroom and no-nonsense Latch anchors for easy connection. With a competitive EPA-estimated maximum range of 220-303 miles, depending on configuration, this family vehicle is ready for short and long road trips.

  • Value EV — 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV: The Chevy Bolt EV hatchback is a well-equipped all-electric vehicle with an EPA-estimated maximum range of 259 miles that starts at less than $30,000 before any applicable tax incentives. Featuring a 10.2-inch touchscreen multimedia system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, automatic climate control, automatic emergency braking and lane departure steering assist, this hatch delivers more than enough to satisfy budget-conscious car shoppers.

  • Luxury EV — 2023 Genesis Electrified G80: The Genesis Electrified G80 is a gorgeous, electrified luxury sedan with an opulent interior that outshines the competition. The multimedia system is simple to use, easy to decipher and elegant. In addition, this luxury EV elevates the driving experience to one where there is practically no powertrain noise at all — unless you want there to be.

  • Commuter EV — 2023 Kia Niro EV: The Kia Niro EV is a fun and dynamic four-door compact hatchback with a comfortable ride and pleasant cabin — perfect for long commutes or traffic jams. With an estimated maximum range of 253 miles, owners shouldn’t need to plug in every night, plus the hatchback body packs a respectable amount of cargo and passenger space within a tidy, easy-to-park exterior dimension.
