The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The unlikely Toyota-Tesla partnership has produced what may just be the best battery-electric vehicle below Tesla's own Model S luxury sedan. Its power, 100 miles of real-world range, and interior space add up to a very appealing electric crossover.
