The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Fiat 500e is a fashionable way to drive an all-electric vehicle, but its comparatively short battery range and limited availability undermines its broader appeal. The 2018 Nissan Leaf is improved in every way over its aged predecessor: it’s better-looking, nicer inside, and has more power and battery range, at a relatively affordable price.
