What isn't mentioned is the GOM on a full charge. Both times he apparently only partially charged it. For all we know, its range could be 200 miles in Winter, 239 or whatever in Summer. Its nice the GOM is accurate but other GOMs are close as well they only read 180 miles instead of the 245 they see all Summer.

Folsom Lake KIA in Folsom CA has three Niro EVs in stock. Ask for "KIA Steve". Tell him John sent you.
Good luck.

We are doing the same at Green Fleet Report. Mainly because the Niro is the better of the new BEVs on the Market today.

I'm correcting your grammar only to help you avoid embarrassment in larger forums. It's "Best of the new BEVs" not "better" which is used only when comparing two things, not more than two. You can also write "One of the better" which is ok, for some reason, or "One of the best" which is more grammatically correct.

Unfortunately, Your lengthy correction isn't correct.

The error is that this should be one sentence with a comma between Report and mainly.

This is what I should have written: "We are doing the same at Green Fleet Report mainly because the Niro is the better of the new BEVs on the Market today."

Not wishing to get into a grammar pissing contest, but Leftie's version is certainly how I was taught: a Niro may be the better (or "best", but "better" is preferred) of the two, but it's the best of the three (or more). Googling seems to confirm:
When you use best, you say it in absolute terms. While better is used in relative terms. "Better" is a comparative, i.e. it is a relationship between two things. "Best" is a superlative, i.e. it states the position of this one thing compared to all the other things under discussion.

Thank you for your helpfulness.

When I write something other than train of thought messages like on this forum, I run the work through an AI based online system and then a human professional proofreader. Both checks caught the fragment sentences which I fixed, but neither suggested your edits.

At risk of sounding pedantic, I'm with Leftie and GRA on this one.

Best is used like 'most'. Better would be analogous to 'more', ie more than the other one (of two).
