The Good & Bad – 2017 Tesla Model 3 vs Chevy Bolt vs Nissan Leaf
Consumers are starting to become more environment conscious and so, the EV market has been gaining lots of love lately. The EV models that are currently dominating conversations are the Tesla Model 3, Chevy Bolt and Nissan Leaf – but, which one stands at the top?
It’s difficult to point out the best as all these models have their own advantages and disadvantages. Chevrolet’s Bolt advantage is its range capabilities which even beats the Leaf’s range. Aside that, the Bolt comes with great battery management system and it appears to be the model that would make your every dollar count.
That said, the Bolt lacks in Level 3 Charging setup and it doesn’t come with a widespread charging infrastructure like what Tesla Model 3 has. That’s not all – this model is swift and it can reach up to Level 5 Autonomous drive.
Tesla is a premium brand so it’s not surprising that the Model 3 seems like a model that places a higher priority on luxurious elements compared to functionality.
Leaf: Not For Everyone
Despite the Nissan Leaf being the most affordable electric model and having the best quick charge capabilities, this model sorely lacks in range. The Leaf is not for everyone as it’ll only suit those who don’t require more than 100 miles of range.
Aside from not having a charging infrastructure, some buyers are now considering the Leaf as a laggard.
Maybe there’s no such thing as a perfect EV but at the end of the day, it really boils down to personal preferences. Well, which EV will be the best choice for you?
