The Nissan LEAF Vs. The Hyundai Ioniq Electric

Our knowledgeable sales specialists have reviewed the specs, performance, pricing and standard and available features of these two EVs, and we've determined that the Nissan LEAF comes out on top. But don't just take our word for it; review our findings below so that you can determine for yourself which EV you'd rather drive.

First, let's consider each vehicle's safety features. Both the LEAF and the Ioniq Electic come equipped with conventional active and passive safety features such as traction control, four-wheel anti-lock brakes and driver and passenger airbags. Look deeper, though, and you'll find that the 2020 Nissan LEAF holds the advantage in advanced safety features and driver-assistive technologies. For instance, Nissan's ProPILOT Assist with semi-autonomous driving capabilities and an Intelligent Around View MonitorⓇ are available and help drivers stay alert and focused yet relaxed at the wheel.

Are you looking for a new electric car for sale that offers plenty of cargo space for hauling your gear around Kenner, LA, and beyond? You'll find exactly that when you opt for a new LEAF. Thanks to its large cargo hold, you can load up your gear, luggage and groceries and still have space to spare. The same cannot be said about the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Electic and its smaller cargo area.

Why Choose The Nissan LEAF?

While there is an increasing number of EV models available for sale in the Metairie, LA, area, none of them are as cost-effective and value-packed as Nissan's new LEAF! When you choose the 2020 LEAF, you'll also enjoy a car that qualifies for significant local and federal benefits and incentives that only add to your savings on fuel and maintenance.

Thanks to federal incentives, Nissan LEAF drivers may be eligible for a tax credit of up to $7,500. But the benefits don't end there. While many New Orleans area drivers have to stop at the gas pump to refuel and visit service centers for regular maintenance, your new LEAF can sail past both locations, thanks to its all-electric powertrain! Contact the team at Premier Nissan of Metairie for more details on why the LEAF could be your ideal next car.
