The discussion about buying electric vehicles often focuses on new cars, but buying a used EV is a great way to save money. One of the best used EVs to keep an eye on is the 2019 Kia Niro Electric (or Niro EV), which recently earned a spot on Consumer Reports’ list of best three-year-old EVs on the market today.

Why Consumer Reports ranked the top 3-year-old EVs

Consumer Reports mentioned one main reason for their list of the best three-year-old EVs: the change in EV tax credits that come from the recent Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. Beginning in 2023, those who buy a used EV will qualify for a $4,000 tax credit. Tax credits for buying new EVs are nothing new, but this legislative change could encourage more buyers to choose used models.

The list uses three-year-old EVs, as these models were typically previously leased vehicles. After three years, these cars are sold off, which is why it is common to see so many used cars of this age.

In selecting EVs for the list, Consumer Reports looked for reliable and comfortable models. The 2019 Kia Niro Electric is featured as one of the three cars on the list, as Consumer Reports believes it is a used EV that a buyer could drive for years.

2019 Kia Niro EV | Kia America

The 2019 Kia Niro Electric is a compact SUV that Consumer Reports likes for its reliability, quiet and comfortable interior, and impressive range. The 2019 Kia Niro Electric can travel 239 miles on a single charge. However, it does take longer to charge than some other EVs. Acceleration is another noteworthy aspect of the 2019 Kia Niro Electric, as it can get from 0 to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds.

For drivers interested in advanced safety features, the 2019 Kia Niro Electric comes standard with automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, rear cross-traffic warning, and blind spot warning.

In the best three-year-old EVs list, Consumer Reports notes that it may be difficult to find a used Kia Niro Electric compared to the other EVs it selected. This does not take away from the car’s value, but it means that the other two EVs on the list may need to be considered if a Niro Electric is unavailable.

Other cars that made the top 3-year-old EVs list

The other three-year-old EVs that Consumer Reports included on the list are the 2019 Nissan Leaf and the 2019 Tesla Model 3.

The Nissan Leaf has been on the market for over a decade and has proven to be a reliable EV. Consumer Reports notes that the 2019 Nissan Leaf sports a solid range and impressive selection of advanced safety features. It is also one of the most affordable used EVs available, with models selling for as little as $23,500.

A lot has been said about the reliable and exciting Tesla Model 3, as the electric sedan has become one of the most recognizable EVs out there. Buyers interested in a used EV will likely be more than satisfied with the 2019 Tesla Model 3. Consumer Reports highlights the handling and acceleration as high points of the Model 3. A major benefit this Tesla may have over the Kia Niro Electric is its potential availability. The Tesla Model 3 is one of the top-selling EVs, so finding a used model for sale may be easier than finding a Niro Electric. Since the availability of the Kia Niro Electric was its main issue, this may be important.
