TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 BMW 7-Series is a plush ride with plenty of powertrain options and customizable features that places it among the full-size greats. The 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV remains the only affordable, available electric car that offers more than 200 miles of range. The 2018 Tesla Model S still delivers unequaled battery-electric performance, though its style and safety are beginning to show their age.
