The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
5.8
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. 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.
