Survey Reveals Real Concerns About Electric Vehicle Reliability
Both the Niro EV and e-tron have since lost their CR recommended rating, and the Model Y never earned one to begin with. Older and less complicated EVs, specifically the Chevy Bolt and Nissan Leaf, are still recommended. The Bolt, in fact, is one of Chevy’s most reliable models. But CR has done something else that might be somewhat controversial.
It is changing the predicted reliability to below average for two new EVs it hasn’t even tested yet, the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Mercedes-Benz EQC, simply because other new EVs have too many issues. Sufficient owner data for the Porsche Taycan, which impressed CR during track testing, hasn’t arrived yet but it still decided to downgrade the Taycan’s predicted reliability from average to below average. The Taycan is no longer recommended, but is that really fair?
