Electric cars are becoming very popular, and it's easy to see why. The money you can save at the gas pump and through state and federal credits are nothing to laugh at. Plus, people love the fact that they can drive a vehicle that doesn't harm the environment.
Are you on a search for a new electric vehicle (EV) this year in the Dublin, California, area? If so, you'll want to consider the 2019 Nissan LEAF, available now at Premier Nissan of Fremont.
There are a lot of different EVs on the market today, so how do you know which car is the right fit for you? When you head down to our local new and used car dealership near Mountain View, CA, you can learn how the popular 2019 Nissan LEAF and 2019 Tesla Model 3 electric vehicles compare.
Both of these cars come with impressive specs, safety features, performance and cargo capacities -- but only one of these electric vehicles is a clear winner. Let's find out which one.
When you get behind the wheel of the new Nissan LEAF, you'll have exciting technology features at your fingertips. From the available phone integration technology such as Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to the NissanConnect EV with Amazon Alexa, there is no lack of technology features available with the 2019 Nissan LEAF.
Both the Nissan LEAF and Tesla's Model 3 come with impressive advanced safety features such as crash mitigation braking, a lane departure warning system and blind-spot warning. But only the new LEAF comes with an available Around View MonitorⓇ that allows the driver to see all objects that are surrounding the vehicle on a built-in display screen. In contrast, the new Model 3 only offers a rearview camera monitor and parking sensors that beep.
The 2019 Tesla Model 3 tips the scales at over 3,600 pounds. Because of this immense weight, it might not be able to handle and accelerate better than the considerably lighter Nissan LEAF. The new LEAF is both shorter and narrower than the Model 3, making it much easier to manage around Bay Area traffic.
