The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Nissan Leaf is an affordable and refreshingly straightforward electric car, and it’s become a good value. The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 gives families the right formula for saying farewell to tailpipe emissions, but the cabin tech could use some smoothing over.
