But here we are talking nonsense and you might not even remember our poll. So, for those of you who haven’t been paying attention to our website, we asked some time ago which of the two cars, Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf, you would choose.
The Volt has the advantage of having the range of a normal car - 300 miles (483 km) - out of which 40 miles (64 km) are on an electrical basis only. The Volt will have two operation modes: Electric and Extended-Range. In Electric operation mode the car is propelled by energy stored in the 16 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. When this energy is depleted the Extended-Range mode takes over and the car is powered by an engine-generator. While the Volt is eco friendlier than regular internal combustion cars, it will still have CO2 emissions when on a long trip.
These being said, our website’s users expressed their need for a more versatile vehicle as opposed to a completely eco friendly one by favoring the Chevy Volt. Admittedly, the difference is not that significant, only 7 percent, but it’s still a proof that drivers are not quite prepared to go fully electric even if it’s cheaper.
