What Are Electric Vehicles?

Going the electric car route can save drivers loads on gas, which is no small feat as gas prices are always fluctuating. At Herb Gordon Nissan in Silver Spring, MD, we’re happy to offer the 2019 Nissan LEAF, which is one of the most impressive electric cars on the market. Actually, it's the world's best-selling electric car.

So, why consider an electric vehicle for your next upgrade, and what can the 2019 Nissan LEAF offer you and your family?

Why Upgrade to Electric

It's self-explanatory that electric cars are fuel efficient. Did you know how much exactly, though? For example, the Nissan LEAF has a combined MPG of 113. The Nissan Altima, by comparison, boasts a combined 32 MPG. Another benefit is that electric cars don’t require as much upkeep because there aren’t as many parts that wear down as much as regular cars, like exhaust systems, radiators, or starter motors; the car will probably need less expensive servicing.

2019 Nissan Leaf

Aside from the 113 MPG combined gas mileage, the 2019 Nissan LEAF serves up many other benefits. It features automatic temperature control, automatic emergency braking, and an e-pedal, which can actually monitor how traffic is moving and help brake. There are two batteries available with corresponding ranges: a 62 kWh battery for an EPA range up to 226 miles, and a 40 kWh battery for an EPA range up to 150 miles. To help you save even further, it incorporates two driving modes: Eco-Mode lets you extend your range, while B-Mode adds charge to your battery when traversing downhill.
