TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV provides a long driving range in a flexible hatchback body for the city—but it comes up short in charm and polish. The 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric is hard to find in some U.S. markets, but it's one of the best affordable long-range electric vehicles. The 2020 Nissan Leaf has outgrown its nerdy, commuter-car phase and steers now toward mainstream.
