Let's check out how the Ford Focus Electric rakes in the accolades against the Nissan Leaf.
We know you'll be saving cash by not having to stop for gas -- ever -- in a 2015 Ford Focus Electric or Nissan Leaf, and even though these fierce rivals are just about equal when it comes to MSRP, you'll get more amenities in a Focus Electric. The Focus Electric comes standard with HID automatic headlights, mirrors with integrated turn signals and blind spot mirrors,, dual-zone automatic climate control, two 12V power outlets, HD Radio, SYNC with voice activation, navigation, a 9-speaker Sony premium audio system, a driver information center and rear parking sensors -- with the Leaf only keeping pace with one 12V outlet and nothing else. With their prices virtually the same, need we say more than the 2015 Ford Focus Electric runs away with this one?!
These pups might only run on electricity, but that doesn't mean they don't have a powertrain. The 2015 Ford Focus Electric easily surpasses the Leaf. Under the hood of the Focus Electric, you'll find a 107kW permanent magnet electric traction motor, Li-ion battery, and 1-speed automatic transmission, which translates into a hefty net 143 hp. By contrast, the Nissan Leaf features an 80kW AC synchronous elect motor, Li-ion battery, and single speed transmission as well, but only nets 107 horses. Clearly, the 2015 Ford Focus Electric outpowers the Nissan Leaf!
Since these electric beauties are both hatchbacks, cargo space is appreciated, and you'll get more of it in the 2015 Ford Focus Electric. With the rear seat down, you'll get an ample 33.9 cubic feet of cargo space in the Focus Electric, while the Nissan Leaf only offers up 30 cubic feet of volume -- nearly 4 cubic feet less for gear and groceries! If you're looking for space, go with the 2015 Ford Focus Electric.View Inventory
