The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Kia Soul EV offers more space for people and cargo than many other small battery-electric cars, but you can only buy it in limited regions and it's no longer top of the non-Tesla range list. The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV could become the first mainstream electric car, with a 238-mile range and a base price in the high $30,000s before incentives.
