The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Tesla Model 3 promises Tesla chic at mass-market prices, at least when less expensive versions arrive, but build quality should be any buyer’s biggest worry. The 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV remains the only affordable, available electric car that offers more than 200 miles of range.
