Tesla Model 3 vs Chevrolet Bolt vs Nissan Leaf: Which EV Is The Best
July 8, 2018  Michael Karkafiris


Electric Trio: The Chevrolet Bolt, Nissan Leaf and Tesla Model 3 Square Off
| Edmunds

We have arrived at that point where the market offers enough mainstream
electric vehicles in order to get those classic comparison tests going. So
here it is: the Tesla Model 3 against the Chevrolet Bolt and the Nissan

The whole comparison seems a little bit unfair, especially since Tesla
hasn’t launched the base version of the Model 3 yet, but it’s still
interesting to see how the different choices each maker has made compare to
each other.

Out of the three, the Model 3 is easily the fastest and the one that handles
the best. It’s also the one with the longest official range, offering 310
miles on a full charge. The setback is of course the price, as the Model 3
with the Long Range battery option is easily the more expensive out of the

And while the Tesla offers the quickest acceleration, it’s not that the
other two can be deemed as slow; the Chevy Bolt, for example, offers a
0-60mph in 6.8 seconds, while the Nissan Leaf can hit the 60mph mark in 7.8

Then there’s the range. At 310 miles, the Model 3 offers the longest of the
bunch, at least officially, with the Bolt getting a 238-mile rating and the
Leaf 150 miles on a full charge.

However, Edmunds’ comparison found that the Bolt can easily travel for more
miles than its official range suggests, with their best result to be a very
impressive 334 miles. Similarly, the Nissan Leaf can go past its 150-mile
rating when you enable its Eco mode and E-Pedal – plus there’s a new version
with a range of more than 200 miles coming for the 2019MY.

Each one has its strong and weak points, but which of the current crop of
electric vehicles is the smartest choice?
