The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
6.4
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 Volkswagen e-Golf is a Golf that happens to run only on electricity, but its range is now sub-par.
