2017 Chevy Bolt vs 2017 Nissan Leaf
More and more people are switching over to gas-powered engines to green alternatives like hybrids, plug-in hybrids and full electric vehicles. Two big models that you have likely heard a bit about are the 2017 Chevy Bolt and the Nissan Leaf. The 2017 Bolt will be the first ever model on the market, while the Leaf has been around for a bit now. But who comes out better when you compare the 2017 Chevy Bolt vs 2017 Nissan Leaf?
The main point of contention between any electric vehicle will be its driving range. The 2017 Chevy Bolt has a range that exceeds 200 miles, according to Chevrolet. Nissan has been quiet about how much total range to expect from the 2017 Leaf, but most rumors point toward 140 miles being the number, though only as an upgrade to a smaller engine, such as the current engine with an 84 mile range.
|2017 Chevy Bolt||2017 Nissan Leaf|
|$30,000 after tax credit||Estimated MSRP||$29,010|
|More than 200 miles||Max Driving Range||140 (rumored)|
|Under 7 seconds||0-60 mph time||10.2 seconds|
Differences between the 2017 Chevy Bolt and 2017 Nissan Leaf
The current Nissan Leaf is well-known to those who want to lower their emissions and get away from the price of gas. But the Nissan Leaf isn’t exactly known for its thrilling driving experience, with a 0-60 mph speed well north of 10 seconds. The 2017 Chevy Bolt, on the other hand, will surprise you. This spry little compact gets up to highway speed fast and can go from 0-60 mph in under seven seconds.
Both the Chevy Bolt and Nissan Leaf will come with certain interior features that both enhance driver-experience and let you keep an eye on how efficient your driving is. Both brands also throw in some extra features at the base level for added convenience, such as push button start and Bluetooth capabilities. Both vehicles will come with a large diagonal display up front, but we think it will be hard to top the 10.2-inch screen that comes with every Bolt -- which is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Chevy also includes the option for 4G LTE Wi-Fi in its vehicles, so you can always stay connected while on the road.
The 2017 Chevy Bolt arrives in late 2016, and from what we have seen it will be quite the vehicle! Be sure to let the team at Holiday Automotive know if you’re interested in seeing and test driving the new 2017 Chevy Bolt in Fond du Lac.
