Seems to be balanced and fair.

#1 on their Hybrid/Electric Car list
#3 in their general small car, hatchback and compact cars list (three lists).

Once the safety ratings come in, then it may even reach the #1 slot on those lists.

Bottom Line:

The Final Call

Plain and simple, if you’re in the market for an electric car, the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV ought to be at the top of your list. The Bolt offers an unrivaled 238 miles of driving range per charge, which is double what most of its competitors provide (107 miles from the Nissan Leaf, 114 miles from the BMW i3). The Bolt is also more spacious inside than both the Leaf and the i3, and it can carry more cargo in its hatchback.

For many, it’ll come down to the price. The standard Chevy Bolt starts at $36,620 (before available tax incentives). Of course, that’s not as cheap as the $30,680 Leaf or the $29,120 Ford Focus Electric, but for the money, you get great features and unparalleled driving distance before having to recharge.

Can they really say the Bolt is pricier than its rivals when it doesn't have any aside from the yet to be released Model 3? I'm sure once the safety ratings are out, the scorecard will be updated and maybe we'll see something close to 10.

Can't wait to see the Bolt crash tests in action and see how it crumples.
