The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.5
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. It’s not perfect, but the 2020 Tesla Model 3 has a devoted following and growing list of fans.
