The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.0

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 Nissan Leaf is improved in every way over its aged predecessor: it’s better-looking, nicer inside, and has more power and battery range, at a relatively affordable price.
