TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV remains the only affordable, available electric car that offers more than 200 miles of range. The 2018 Chevrolet Volt is an accomplished and refined extended-range electric car that makes an ideal everyday commuter. The 2018 Toyota Prius wins our minds with its fuel-efficiency and low running costs. Our hearts are a different story.
