The Car Connection's Take

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. 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. The 2017 Tesla Model S is unlike any other car on the road for several reasons—good and bad.
