Feb 08, 2017 06:10 AM EST | Joyce Vega

Tesla Model 3 is the most luxurious one, Nissan Leaf is the most affordable one, and Chevy Bolt is the most practical one. Here are all the differences between the three models

In the previous article by Auto World News, the difference between Tesla Model 3 and Chevy Bolt is a big one. Tesla Model 3 is a luxurious sedan that comes in three different models. Each model is complemented by the giant panoramic glass roof, comfortable seats, speed, and range. But Chevy Bolt is not to be underestimated. The car comes with 240mile battery range. The acceleration is smooth, and the instant EV torque is good and quiet. The interior of the Chevy Bolt is low key with no frills. Chevy Bolt has one more advantage that it is available for sale right now.

On the other side at Torque News, both Chevy Bolt and Nissan Leaf suffer from lack of charging infrastructure. Tesla has no problems whatsoever. But with CCS charges coming up all the time, Tesla’s big advantage is about to fail by the time they come to market. Tesla Model S comes from a premium brand, which means the car is more luxurious than practical.

Tesla Model S comes with AutoPilot, while Chevy Bolt and New Nissan Leaf are both lacking in that department. New Nissan Leaf is the most affordable one but suffers from short range. Both Tesla Model 3 and New Nissan Leaf are equipped with quick-charge while Chevy Bolt isn’t. New Nissan Leaf is expected to have the highest sales due to the car being mass produced and the most affordable electric vehicle on the market. Despite the fact that Nissan Leaf is the smallest of them all, the car seems to be the best choice for town driving.

In summary, the Tesla Model S is the most luxurious car on the market. It has the best battery and range, and highest speed. It is packed with the latest technology and has Level 5 autonomous drive. Chevy Bolt is the middle child with moderate battery range, average equipment, and a decent price. Nissan Leaf is a simple in-town electric vehicle, with the most affordable price.
