Are you sick of stopping for gas every week or month? Want to save money that would have been put towards gas? Want to cut down on emissions to help the environment? Both the 2020 Nissan LEAF and 2020 Toyota Prius Prime are great options. However, you may find one model to be more beneficial than the other. With our 2020 Nissan LEAF vs 2020 Toyota Prius Prime comparison, let’s take a close look at the performance, mileage, and cargo volume for both models.
Advantages of the 2020 Nissan LEAF Electric Vehicle
Before you decide on either the 2020 Nissan LEAF or the 2020 Toyota Prius Prime, you should be aware of the difference in vehicle type. While both models are similar in size and function off electricity, the LEAF is fully electric while the Prius Prime is a plug-in hybrid. What does this mean? In short, the LEAF won’t use gas at all while the Prius Prime will still require gas. If saving money and emissions is your goal, you will find the LEAF to be more beneficial.
Not only that, but the LEAF holds the advantage in terms of performance and mileage. Since the Prius Prime relies on some gas, its mileage is less than the mileage of the LEAF. While the Prius Prime’s all-electric mileage exceeds that of the LEAF, the Prius Prime cannot function off only electricity for long, thus giving the LEAF the advantage. In addition, the LEAF is far more powerful in terms of both horsepower and torque, regardless of your electric motor choice. Finally, you will find the 2020 Nissan LEAF to be more spacious, allowing for far more cargo to be stored.
