The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The BMW i3 is a wonder of technology, but it's already been surpasses by EVs with longer range. The 2018 Ford Focus Electric is a competent battery-powered compact hatchback, but it’s low-volume, not available everywhere, and its cargo bay should have been redesigned years ago.
