The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Ford Focus Electric is a competent battery-powered compact hatchback, but it’s low-volume, not available everywhere, and its cargo bay should have been redesigned years ago. 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.
