2014 Nissan LEAF vs 2014 Chevy Volt
The future of driving is here as two large automakers put their electric and hybrid vehicles up against one another. While the 2014 Nissan LEAF vs 2014 Chevy Volt may seem like an unfair comparison, Ingram Park Nissan wants to demonstrate how both brands are striving to offer fuel-efficient vehicles with distinct performances.
Comparing a hybrid to an entirely electric vehicle may not be the most balanced mashup, but it is important for environmentally conscious drivers to weigh the strengths between the two styles of fuel-saving vehicles. The 2014 Chevy Volt is a solid hybrid vehicle utilizing both an advanced lithium-ion battery and a gas engine. The beauty of a hybrid is its ability to use electric power for clean city driving and an engine for longer drives.
The battery earns the Volt a 38-mile driving range, but when working in conjunction with the engine, drivers can travel up to 380 miles before filling up the gas tank. Because the vehicle uses a regular engine, it’s capable of producing up to 149 horsepower under the hood. Inside the vehicle is 90.3 cubic feet of total passenger space, so travelers can remain comfortable even when they’re saving the environment.

When a vehicle is 100 percent electric that means never having to fill up a gas tank ever again. It also means never having to produce another CO2 emission or fume. Going electric will have a significant positive impact on both the driver’s wallet and the environment.
A hybrid may be a positive choice for drivers who travel longer distances more frequently, but for city drivers or those with short commutes, there is no reason not to go electric. The 2014 Nissan LEAF is an unprecedented, 100-percent electric vehicle running exclusively on an advanced lithium-ion battery. This system can be charged at home or at designated charging stations across the country to give travelers an 84-mile driving range.
Because the vehicle requires fewer parts as it doesn’t use a conventional engine, it is lighter and more aerodynamic to further improve its efficiency. It also means the vehicle will need a lot less maintenance at the end of the day. Without an engine, the vehicle is still capable of producing 107 horsepower while delivering an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-estimated 126 mpge city efficiency rating. The vehicle’s cabin reveals 92.4 cu. ft. of passenger space to accommodate every traveler as they create a healthier, happier environment.
