The Tesla Model 3 comes out on top in just about every way.
Yes, the Chevrolet Bolt EV has a few perks that work to top the Tesla Model 3. It’s sort of cheaper and it offers more miles in its base configuration. The new, upcoming long-range Nissan LEAF is much the same. Of course, we need to compare range, price, features, etc. But in the end, with all things considered, how do these cars really fare?
If you follow the segment, you well know that the Tesla Model 3 is, by far, the most popular competitor. But, the Chevrolet Bolt EV may be much more practical, and MSRP discounts are a plenty. To top it off, relatively inexpensive lease options are available in some areas.
In terms of the Nissan LEAF, the company must be doing something right, as Nissan has sold some 400k LEAFs globally. Is it because it’s cheap? Perhaps that was the case in the past and even with the completely redesigned 2018 model. But, fast-forward and the LEAF’s new longer range battery pack makes it about as expensive (if not more) than the Bolt EV and Model 3.
So, the above video takes all that into account to make an accurate comparison of the “Big Three” competing long-range EVs of today.
