The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Ford Focus Electric is fun to drive, though its range is lower than the Nissan Leaf and others; its "regular car" looks may appeal to some, but it's sold only in small numbers in a handful of markets. The 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf is a competent electric car, but its specs are less competitive than before.
