2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV vs. Its Competition

2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV use hardware that is beginning to grow old.

The Nissan Leaf is even older, even more anonymous looking, and offers less range but at a good price.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E has a far sexier look and offers a high-performance model and all-wheel drive.

The Tesla Model 3 compact sedan and Model Y compact crossover have more range and technology, but they now cost almost twice as much as the Bolt.

Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 is a style leader with better charging capability, more power, and better handling.
