More consumers are moving over to hybrid and electric models with each passing year, and it’s not hard to see why. They offer a range of serious benefits, with the once-present drawbacks being eliminated more and more thanks to new technology. Not only do these vehicles serve to ease ones conscience with regard to pollution and environmental effects, but they are also substantially easier on the wallet when it comes to fuel costs. Some owners even attest to their electric vehicles requiring significantly less maintenance due to the comparatively smaller strain the electric engine puts on its vehicle.

Chevrolet and Nissan both produce some of the best known electric vehicles on the market, and for good reason. The Nissan LEAF and the Chevrolet Bolt EV both come out strong in 2019, but when it comes to value for your money the 2019 Nissan LEAF gives you the most for what you pay for.

A Better Value

The 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV starts at an MSRP of $36,620, whereas the 2019 Nissan LEAF boasts an MSRP of only $29,990. In spite of this nearly $7,000 price decrease, the LEAF still delivers a lot of key features that the Bolt EV lacks.

Safety is one area where the LEAF comes out particularly strong. The LEAF boasts such features a height adjustable seatbelts, which help to protect optimally during a crash, Intelligent Brake Assist, which can detect an impending crash and adjust as necessary, and Active Head Restraints, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. There is also a Driver Alert Monitor to detect if the driver is suffering from fatigue and to alert them with sound cues to take a break. These are the kind of features that can save lives, and it’s great to see that the LEAF does not hold back in this key area.
