Quick 220® Team – November 12, 2015

Electric vehicles are all the rage these days–and for good reason. They offer substantial savings in fuel cost, and the government rebates are lucrative. But looking at the specs, how do EVs stack up against each other?

Don’t worry, we’ve done all the work for you in this infographic. Below, we’ve compared the four most popular EVs to each other: the Tesla Model S, Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, and Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid. Now, to clarify: not every vehicle on this list is electric-only. Both the Chevy Volt and Toyota Prius are hybrids. The Tesla Model S and Nissan Leaf are all-electric. Here, we’re comparing the electric aspect of these four cars.

We’re all busy. Speed is an important part of our lives. For electric vehicle owners, speed of charging is critical! At the bottom of this infographic, you’ll find the lowdown on EV charge times using 220v power. The results might surprise you.
