Affiliated automakers Hyundai and Kia have basically just doubled the number of all-electric models they sell here in the U.S., so we can’t blame you if you’re a little confused. Until recently, the only all-electric models available were versions of the Hyundai Ioniq and Kia Soul, but debuting at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show were forthcoming EVs based on the Hyundai Kona and Kia Niro, with an electric version of the redesigned Soul just around the corner.

Confused yet? Well, here’s the important stuff: The Ioniq and the outgoing Soul were relatively low-range by today’s standards, with EPA-rated ranges of just 124 and 111 miles, respectively; the Kona EV, with a higher-capacity battery, is now rated at 258 miles. Ranges for the next-generation Soul EV and the new Niro EV are still pending, but both have the same battery, which suggests that we should soon see them join the small but growing ranks of 200-plus-mile electric cars.
