When it comes to electric compact vehicles, you have several choices to consider. However, two models manage to rise above the rest: the 2019 Nissan LEAF and the 2019 Chevy Volt. In this comparison, we at Fred Beans Nissan will show you how these two vehicles compare so that you can zero in on the perfect one for you.

Shoppers near Doylestown, Philadelphia, and Warminster can read ahead to see how the LEAF and Volt stack up against each other when it comes to performance, technology, and active safety!

LEAF vs Volt: Performance

Powering the 2019 Nissan LEAF is a 110-kW electric motor and 40-kWh lithium-ion  battery. Together, this duo produces a peppy 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque.

On top of that, the LEAF has a 151-mile range, meaning you can travel more than 150 miles on just one charge. Plus, the LEAF charges super fast; in just 30 minutes, the LEAF charges enough to go 90 miles!

Unfortunately, the 2019 Chevy Volt doesn't offer the same kind of equipment, giving you only an 18.4-kWh lithium-ion battery. With this, you won't be able to go nearly as far on one charge: The Volt's electric powertrain can only take you 53 miles on one charge, which is just more than a third of what the LEAF is capable of.

LEAF vs Volt: Technology

Inside both the 2019 Nissan LEAF and the 2019 Chevy Volt, you'll find all kinds of handy technology features. For instance, they both include intuitive infotainment systems with large touchscreen displays, Bluetooth® wireless connectivity, and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

The LEAF takes technology a step further, though, with NissanConnect® EV with services powered by SiriusXM®. This feature lets you access and control a variety of the LEAF's features right on your smartphone or smartwatch; adjust the climate  system, check your charge, and stay up to date on your range!

LEAF vs Volt: Advanced Safety

The 2019 Nissan LEAF isn't just proficient when it comes to performance and technology-it also goes above and beyond in the safety category.

The LEAF is equipped with the Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ suite, which includes a handful of advanced driver-assistive safety features. For example, you'll get Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection and a 360-degree Intelligent Around View® Monitor.

In the 2019 Chevy Volt, you'll get a few advanced safety features too, like Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist. However, you won't find anything as advanced as what the LEAF has to offer.

2019 Nissan LEAF vs 2019 Chevy Volt: The Verdict

As you can see, the 2019 Nissan LEAF is the right choice for any driver who wants to go further on one charge, have all the technology they need right at their fingertips, and feel confident in all kinds of driving conditions.

Now that you've had a taste of what the LEAF can do, it's time to get behind the wheel for a test drive. Shoppers in the areas of Doylestown, Philadelphia, and Warminster can schedule a test drive today by giving us a call at Fred Beans Nissan!
