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. The fun-to-drive 2017 Ford Focus Electric finally gets the range boost and DC fast-charging it's needed for years, but Ford's sole electric car is still only available in a few markets. 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.
