If you are in the market for an electric vehicle (EV) you have plenty of options to choose from. But two cars, the Nissan Leaf, and the Chevrolet Bolt have risen to the top of the pack due to user-friendly features and affordability.
Here at Maus Nissan of Crystal River, we know that finding the perfect EV can be a challenge which is why we put together this vehicle comparison to help you decide which eclectic vehicle is right for you.
Let's take a look!
The Nissan Leaf offers more headroom and legroom up front than the Bolt, but the Bolt takes the lead in the back seats.
When it comes to cargo space, the Leaf edges out the Bolt again.
The Chevrolet Bolt can go from zero to 60-mpg in about 6.5 seconds with the Leaf close behind at 7 seconds. In both Evs, steering is light and aggressive, due to low rolling resistance tires.
The Leaf beats the Bolt when it comes to comfort though. The Leaf tends to absorb bumps better than the Bolt which feels stiffer on city streets, and interior noise is minimal when driving in the Leaf as compared to the Bolt.
Both cars utilize standard brake and accelerator pads for braking, but also offer "one-pedal" driving in one way or another. When this mode is engaged, when you take your foot off the accelerator the car will begin to slow and brake on its own. The one pedal function is more user-friendly on the Leaf than the Bolt.
Head-to-head, these EVs are quite similar though the Bolt offers a slightly more powerful motor and slightly better range. If 226 miles of charge is enough to get you where you need to go, the Leaf is the better choice pricewise.
