2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV vs. 2020 Nissan LEAF | McKinney, TX
If you’ve got your eye on a new electric vehicle, two models that are likely on your wish list are the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV and the 2020 Nissan LEAF. While both models make suitable daily drivers, the Chevrolet Bolt EV stands out as being the all-around superior choice.
A Better Performance
The Chevrolet Bolt EV makes for an enjoyable drive that rivals that of gas-powered cars, let alone the Nissan LEAF. Its electric drive unit reaches 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, which is far above what the LEAF electric motor can deliver. The Bolt EV also has a longer driving range than the LEAF, getting an EPA-estimated 259 miles on a full charge.* This means that you can make fewer stops to charging stations when you drive the Bolt EV.
A Roomier Design
The Bolt EV has more space for you, your passengers, and your cargo than the LEAF. With the rear row folded down, the Bolt EV has 56.6 cubic feet of cargo volume, while the LEAF offers a measly 30 cubic feet. As such, with the Bolt EV, you can transport all your necessities and don’t have to leave anything behind.
This car also has more legroom in its second row so that every passenger can feel comfortable and spread out as they please.
A More Driver-Oriented Interior
With an abundance of advanced technologies and amenities, the Bolt EV ensures everyone stays content during the ride. This car is available with heated seats on each trim level so you can warm up on chilly mornings. The base trim of the LEAF does not offer heated seats as an option. The Bolt EV also comes standard with the Chevrolet Infotainment System, which has a 10.2-inch touch screen with smartphone connectivity. The touch screen display in the LEAF is more difficult to use since it is only 8 inches.
