The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV could become the first mainstream electric car, with a 238-mile range and a base price in the high $30,000s before incentives. If you can live with a real-world range of 80 miles, the 2017 Fiat 500e is probably the best 500 minicar. Eclipsed by the Chevrolet Bolt EV's 200-mile-plus range, the Nissan Leaf is best enjoyed with the substantial discounts dealers are eager to offer.
