My son has a Tesla M3, and I could give you a long list of why the Kona, and probably the e-Niro is better. But just for starters, the M3 has very uncomfortable hard leather seats (makes for a sweaty butt), hard to get into and out of, no CarPlay or AndroidAuto, even his extended range version is only about equal at best to the Kona, paid a fortune for options, tires, roof rack, etc., terrible in snow even with winter tires (RWD), and lots of little mechanical problems and bugs (spent lots of time in the shop), and more. And that center monitor is a huge distraction. When I ride with my son, he can't go 5 min without looking and poking at it. Only real advantage is that it has more power, but how much do you need. The Kona (and e_Niro) with 291 ft-lbs torque is no slouch either. The big diff with the Kona and e-Niro is back seat room. So if that is a priority, choose the Niro. For us, I like the extra garage room with the Kona. I don't spend any time in the back row,... haha.
