We got a kick out of this.
In the video above, an Ohio Chevrolet dealership shows us a 2014 Chevrolet Volt to compare to the 2014 Nissan LEAF, but the comparison is one-sided, as you'd expect.
This "comparison" sounded more like a bashing towards a competitor in an attempt to attract sales to the dealership to buy the Volt over the LEAF.
Both vehicles have a lot to compare and contrast regardless of the Volt's standard 17" alloy wheels and available options.
So, if you are in the market for either a Nissan LEAF or a Chevrolet Volt, here are just a few of the many things to consider:
- Your daily commute - How often do you drive more than the rated range of 84 miles of the LEAF?
- Initial cost - The LEAF starts off ~$5,000 less and works its way up to the Volt's price point with available options.
- Maintenance costs - The LEAF has very little to maintain, while the Volt still needs most of the maintenance a normal ICE vehicle needs.
- Practicality- Cargo space, room for driver and passengers.
To those who own an all-electric vehicle or a plug in hybrid: What vehicle did you purchase and why did you buy it over one of the competitive plug-in vehicles?
