Very positive video review of the Niro BEV, from AutoGefuhl: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=za7oxUuPgik
While I still have to drive one and see if I can lie down stretched out in the back, I have a pretty favorable opinion and, depending on the price, I'd seriously consider it even though it lacks the AWD I really want. Ideally, I'd want the Bolt's driving controls and dynamics with the Niro's size - see the Edmunds' video comparo of the Kona and Bolt: https://insideevs.com/edmunds-hyundai-kona-electric-vs-chevy-bolt/
I've got some income coming in next year that I'll want to reduce taxes on, so maybe I'll change my usual habit of buying a car for its lifetime and opt for one of these (or else lease) for a few years, while the ZEV I really want (more range/faster QC/AWD/lower price) becomes practical. I could live with having to put chains on unnecessarily again for a few years if had to, if it meant I could take weekend trips ZEV. I still need the QC infrastructure to be built between here and Yosemite and along 395 to make it useful for me. If that gets built, the only other question is do I keep my Forester just for the multi-day road trips, or sell it and rent for those? As a single-person household having two cars seems silly, but depending on rental rates it may still make sense financially.
