The Car Connection's Take

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. The 2021 Tesla Model Y applies the Model 3’s minimalist interface, punchy performance, and roomy design to a taller, even more spacious crossover profile.
