TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Chevy Volt offers excellent fuel efficiency, and refined driving, improving on its predecessor in every way that counts. Eclipsed by the Chevrolet Bolt EV's 200-mile-plus range, the Nissan Leaf is best enjoyed with the substantial discounts dealers are eager to offer. The 2017 Toyota Mirai sedan has polarizing styling, seats only four, has little acceleration at highway speeds, and can be fueled only in limited regions; while Toyota says it's the future, potential buyers may want to wait and see.
