2017 Chevrolet Volt: More Power with Better Overall Range

As we mentioned, the 2017 Chevrolet Volt is a gas-electric hybrid, meaning it can run on both gasoline and an electric charge. The 2017 Nissan Leaf is solely electric. That means the Leaf has a better electric range – 107 miles – than the Volt’s 53 miles, but that also means the Leaf’s range ends there. When looking at total range, the 2017 Volt completely outclasses the Leaf with a range of 420 miles on a full charge and full tank of gas compared to the Leaf’s, well, 107 miles.

The 2017 Chevy Volt also offers you more power than the 2017 Leaf. With its 1.5-liter direct-injected high-efficiency engine, the 2017 Volt can provide 149 horsepower. The 2017 Leaf’s 80 kW AC Synchronous Electric Motor can only provide 107 horsepower.
