The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
A few more miles of range and modest upgrades push the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV electric hatchback back at the top for (non-Tesla) range, but there are other more charming urban electric cars. The 2020 Kia Niro is a compelling eco-friendly car for those opposed to Prius-like looks.
