BMW i3 vs Nissan Leaf vs Volkswagen (Quick Reviews/Comparison)

I was able to drive about 8 electric in Barcelona over the past I will have longer of many of them in the coming or weeks… as I have time to them up, edit the pics etc. But, real I thought I’d share a quick between the three in the title

Nissan Leaf (Quick

I’ll start with the best-selling electric car of all time — the Leaf. The Leaf, like EV, has great pickup and is super and smooth. The Leaf has an “Eco” option that will the car drive much more saving you some money and the range of your vehicle in charges.

The button for this is large, green, and prominently on your steering wheel. of course, makes it easier to in or out of this greener driving but it also calls out to you and reminds you to be and drive greener. I’m not sure if was intended, but if it was, I think it was a idea.

However, that’s not the thing the prominently placed and button does. Driving in the car makes you step on the pedal to go faster it puts more on the pedal and what that in is that, when you press the to move out of Eco mode while you are driving, you get a big burst of speed. You to notice this very while driving the car.

The is that, when you need (or can’t avoid the urge a quick burst of speed, you that you can very easily your right thumb to the Eco button and release it for that burst (assuming you’re in Eco mode by default). It reminded me of the turbo button in a racing game.

The Leaf also has a couple modes. In B-mode, there is regenerative braking than in the or even the Eco mode, so the car starts to on its own faster when you release the pedal (what we’d the gas pedal in a gasmobile). I think a couple options here is a nice thing.

The Leaf has a sweet visualization program to you back into the location you are for when going in reverse. quite intuitive and lets you get your spot without to do any in-seat gymnastics/yoga or having to ask how much space you have. It quite convenient and I imagine it is by many a Leaf owner.

are dashboard visualizations for remaining projected range (in the current mode), and more. It’s all and very clear.

There’s of space in the car, and the general of the inside of the car is fairly similar to of a normal car, which I some people may like and people may want to get away — I’m not sure where I personally on that one. The front of the car reminded me of a Toyota Camry.

quite a low center of gravity the the batteries), the Leaf feels and very stable on turns. is another one of those benefits exists in most EVs.


e-Up! (Quick Review)

The VW is actually only available in at the moment. Though, it seems that it will be brought to the US a year, following the release of the which is actually not yet available in (I’m sure there’s to Volkswagen’s madness.)

The e-Up! drives very to the Leaf. I can’t say that I much of a difference between the two

The interior was a bit simpler than of the leaf. The dashboard area had some interesting visualizations and information, but it was all a bit simpler than the There also seemed to be a bit space in the front as well as the seats of the car.

One quite thing about the eUp. is the number of braking modes it It has 4 regenerative braking options to the Leaf s 2 to 3 and the BMW i3 s one) Level 1, 2, Level 3, and Level B. It s very to have so much variation In my second test drive of the I started getting used to the options a bit, and I definitely having a lot of options and freedom for different driving situations and

BMW i3 (Quick Review)

The BMW i3 clearly at a higher price point and The interior was what you d expect BMW. Actually, there was a deal of space in the foot in the front more than I in any consumer vehicle.

The visualizations and are very nice and clear. the i3 doesn t have the reverse visualizations that the Leaf or the e-Up! have.

The BMW i3 s drive was than any car I ve ever driven (of any though, I m yet to drive a Tesla.

The i3 has acceleration. It goes from 0 to 100 (0 to 60 mph) in around 7 seconds, a few faster than the Nissan or VW e-Up. which do so in around 10

Overall, the i3 was definitely the nicest of the 3 I m writing about today. having a significantly higher that would be expected.

Conclusions

As I just stated, the BMW i3 was my of the 3 vehicles. The Leaf and e-Up! had their own advantages, though. those two, I d having a time choosing I d need time with each of

All three cars drive smoother than any gasmobile I ve driven, and of course much (which, naturally, is related). The of all three was very good. at the numbers just now, I that they aren t impressive in the 0 100 km/h (0 60 mph) but there s something about how and smoothly these cars that really makes it out.

It feels much natural, and (in my opinion) nicer.

The and displays where particularly in the Leaf. Though, the i3 and the e-Up! had their own offerings in that that were both and interesting. I d have to use the cars for to really say more about all of though.

Naturally, price range differences, and other details are important and worthy of I ll delve into those more in the individual reviews.

conclusion: electric cars are so go test drive one (or several)!
