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 Fiat 500e is a fashionable way to drive an all-electric vehicle, but its comparatively short battery range and limited availability undermines its broader appeal. The 2018 Smart ForTwo, now sold only as an electric vehicle, remains the easiest car in the U.S. to park on crowded streets—and low battery range will keep it mostly urban anyway.
