The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.3
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 2017 Tesla Model S is unlike any other car on the road for several reasons—good and bad.
