The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The larger 2022 Bolt EUV seems destined to replace the Bolt EV. The 2022 Nissan Leaf is an affordable and refreshingly straightforward electric car, and it’s become a good value. The 2021 Tesla Model 3 remains unrivaled, as an impressive automotive amalgam of sport sedan, efficiency leader, and technology icon.
