Tesla Model 3

The 2021 Tesla Model 3 offers tremendous range, a robust charging network and a high-tech feel.

Starting MSRP: $46,190

Edmunds says: Although we've been tough critics of Tesla when warranted, we know a great car when we see it. In fact, we've acknowledged the Tesla Model 3 's greatness three years running — the Model 3 is another repeat winner as our top-ranked electric vehicle. While it has consistently failed to match its EPA range estimates in Edmunds' real-world testing, our numbers show that the Model 3 is still among the longest-range EVs on the market. It's also a hoot to drive, pairing rapid acceleration with slice-and-dice agility. Throw in the fact that Tesla's Supercharger network is arguably the best in the game, and it's clear that the Model 3 remains second to none.

Counterpoint: The Model 3's infotainment software supports neither Apple CarPlay nor Android Auto.
