2017 Nissan Leaf vs 2017 Chevrolet Volt
Start saying goodbye to gas stations. The 2017 Nissan Leaf is 100% electric meaning that is uses absolutely no gas. No gas means no emissions, and no emissions means a cleaner environment.

The 100% electric drive system on the 2017 Nissan Leaf has a range of up to 107 miles before needing to be recharged. The Leaf also has technology that can inform you when and where to charge, and can help to regenerate its battery by using power produced by driving. The regenerative braking system features on the 2017 Leaf captures energy while you are coasting or applying the brakes. This energy is then recycled into usable power to help keep your battery nice and full all day long. An available solar-panel rear spoiler is also able to convert energy into battery power. By taking in sunlight, the spoiler is able to keep the accessory battery charged so you won’t need to worry about using power from your engine while turning on the A/C during these warm California summers.
