The New Nissan LEAF vs Tesla Model 3

Premier Nissan of Fremont 2020 Nissan Leaf Vs Model 3 Interior Views


Let's start with first looks! The Nissan LEAF has a sturdy profile that attracts a variety of car shoppers, including those in search of a family-friendly vehicle as well as driving enthusiasts. The Tesla Model 3 also has an eye-catching profile, and thanks to the design of each, both of these vehicles are aerodynamic. However, if you're used to being able to easily park and reverse your ride, especially in smaller spaces, you'll have a tougher time with the Tesla, as this vehicle is 184.8 inches long. The 176.4 inches of the LEAF makes way for ease of maneuvering.


Moving on to the cabins of these models, drivers of the LEAF will be greeted by a variety of technologies, as well as driver-assistive systems that help them confidently take on California roads. Smartphone integration allows motorists to stay connected yet focused on the road ahead, as does the hands-free text messaging assisting this Nissan has to offer. The Tesla model offers comparable features that help drivers stay connected.

As both vehicles offer touch-screens and the ability to stream music and podcasts, drivers can stay up-to-date and entertained during a road trip.

So where do these two vehicles differ, as they also have similar interior dimensions that cater to the comfort of their passengers. If you're looking to load up your new electric car, the 2020 Nissan LEAF is a clear winner, as it offers 23.6 cubic feet of cargo space. The Tesla falls short at just 15 cubic feet. With a maximum payload of 1,220 pounds, the LEAF easily beats out the 893 rating of the Model 3.


What about overall ease of handling? Well, the 2020 Tesla Model 3 is a beast, weighing between 3,552 to 4,100 pounds, which means it may be more challenging to handle than the more nimble Nissan LEAF, which clocks in between 3,538 to 3,946 pounds.

An electric vehicle works hard to save you money in a variety of ways. In addition to the potential tax credits you could receive, this 2020 electric Nissan vehicle uses no gas whatsoever. That means you can say goodbye to costly fuel fill-ups and see more of the road! Since this vehicle isn't powered by an internal combustion engine, that means there isn't a need for oil changes.

The perks don't end there! No fluid top-ups, no timing belts and no spark plugs mean less overall maintenance, which translates to a low cost of ownership. If your LEAF does need some upkeep, we have you covered, as we feature a dedicated vehicle service center.
