The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
8.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2017 Tesla Model S is unlike any other car on the road for several reasons—good and bad.
