2017 Nissan Leaf to be better than Tesla Model S

Nissan Leaf is one of the few cars that have taken quite a bit of blow in sales owing to Tesla Model S and Chevy Bolt. Well, it seems that Nissan is gearing up to comeback with a reply for Tesla Model S and Chevy Bolt with its new 2017 Nissan Leaf. Initially the rumors came up stating that the 2017 Nissan Leaf is all set to be released in the upcoming months of the year, but as it seems now, the rumors will not be coming true. Instead, the 2017 Nissan Leaf is set to be released during early next year.2015_nissan_leaf_01

According to the recent rumors, the 2017 Nissan Leaf will be having a 40 kWh battery and a one time run range of 140 miles. If we go with the recent rumors, there will be some eyebrows raised about whether the 2017 Nissan Leaf (rumoured all electric) will be able to keep up with other cars in the market.

While we are still not certain of the genuinety of the rumors, it seems that some of the individuals are hoping for something better. There is no doubt of the fact that with the rumoured configuration, 2017 Nissan Leaf will not be able to stand a chance in the market.

On the other hand, Nissan is being slightly sluggish in the market, which certainly does pose the risk of Nissan losing out to the other market players in case of all electric vehicles. Probably as an effort, Nissan in its recent advertisement has stated that the upcoming 2017 Nissan Leaf is better than Tesla Model S. In addition, they have also claimed that upcoming leaf will be having a much lower price tag as well as a better driving range. It will be interesting to check out more details later, when the 2017 Nissan Leaf is actually announced.


  1. If you weigh up the car's value to miles ratio maybe the Nissan Leaf will prevail.

  2. Just about any $29k Car is a better value than any $66k car.

    OTOH if you value your life at $37k or more go with Tesla if you have the means.

  3. Comparing a Leaf to a Model S Is laughable. You must have been deranged to see that comparison. And the Bolt hasnt even been sold yet. This article is a joke

  4. You must be talking about the Model 3 which is still laughable.

  5. It is indeed hilarious. The new leaf is a rumor, and the model 3 is a pipe dream. How about comparing actual, shipping cars instead of fantasy paper designs.

  6. About as many people pick a car solely on price and range as pick a wife based solely on height and shoe size. They aren't the same type of car at all.

  7. Ernesto Napoles I suppose that's why nobody would buy a Mercedes S when they could get a Honda Civic instead. But I don't think many people walk out of a Mercedes dealership, go to Honda, and the deciding factor is how far it can go on a tank of gas.

  8. Sandra Allen Even the Chevy Bolt doesn't compete with the Model 3. It competes with things like the Honda Fit. The Model 3 isn't a concept car or a paper design. It's one that has been designed and built. The final specs are due the middle of this month, and bids go out for parts in 14 days. That's far from a pipe dream.

  9. Sandra Allen Interesting there have been a good number of pipe dreams captured in the wild.

  10. Wayne Resnick

    The 3 has been designed and built in the same sense that a concept has been.

  11. Let's see… It's WAAAY slower than a Tesla, it's got roughly HALF the range, it's MUCH smaller…. it's better than Tesla HOW ? Because it's cheaper ? If low price is this author's measure, then have I got a YUGO for YOU !

  12. I believe the author of this article is not up to date on EV's. The Leaf would be getting compared to the Tesla 3, not the S and the author mentioned the Leaf as rumored to be all electric, well if it wasn't that certainly would be news. To be better than the Tesla 3 it would need a range over 215 miles without an ICE range extender like the Volt and a starting price of $35,000 or less. I'd love to see it but I won't hold my breath.

  13. Maybe the author thought that things with 4 wheels are the same… 🙂

  14. Maybe the concept 2018 Leaf (google it) but not the current model, not even close

  15. Yes an all electric LEAF would be a rumor indeed! Lol Although you forgot nationwide fast charge to your list to make it even comparable let alone better than the Model 3, even if it's an option.

  16. I think you meant "somewhat comparable to a Tesla Model 3" not "better than Tesla Model S"
