Consumer Reports has named the Chevrolet Bolt EV as one of its 2018 Top Picks.

Every year, Consumer Reports names the best new cars in their 10 Top Picks awards. They use a mix of scoring that includes CR’s own track testing, reliability survey results, owner satisfaction surveys, and safety testing.

The Chevrolet Bolt EV was named Top Pick for Compact Green Car. Consumer Reports said that “the Bolt proves that electric cars need not apologize for a lack of driving performance.”

The editors liked the brisk acceleration, tight handling, and 250-mile electric range, thanks to a 60-kilowatt-hour battery, all for a mainstream price. They also liked the high driving position and lack of road and wind noise.

Because the Bolt is a relatively new model, CR doesn’t have owner satisfaction survey data yet, but they do make predictions and expect that the Bolt EV will score 5/5 in that department. The Bolt scores a 4/5 for reliability, with points lost for the reliability of in-car electronics, paint and trim, and suspension issues.

While the Tesla Model S is still the highest-scoring call that Consumer Reports has tested, the Bolt EV was the only electrified model to make the list this year. That’s because the magazine didn’t use the category of the Model S on the list this year. Consumer Reports changes the categories used for Top Pick based on the vehicles they tested that year as well as what it feels are the year’s consumer interests.
