The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.8
7.2

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 Nissan Leaf has matured from its awkward early years into a useful, efficient, mainstream electric hatchback.
