Nissan Electric Vehicles For Sale in Phoenix

With two exceptional electric vehicles on the market, you can't go wrong with a Nissan for your next car. While many automakers are just starting to produce electric vehicles, Nissan has traditionally been a leader in the field. Nissan started to make its first electric car, called the Leaf, ten years ago. The Leaf stood out at the time for its extended electric range of more than 70 miles. Today, the Leaf's technology has improved even more, and it is capable of over 200 miles of range. Nissan also now has a newer electric car on the market called the Ariya, which offers all the advantages of an electric powertrain combined with the practicality and space of an SUV.

What is the difference between electric, hybrid, and plug-in models?

Electric cars, hybrid vehicles, and hybrid plug-in vehicles are similar, but they have some key mechanical differences. Electric vehicles have a powertrain that consists just of an electric motor powered by a battery. Hybrid vehicles are equipped with a traditional gas engine and at least one electric motor. One or more batteries power their motor. Hybrid plug-in vehicles have the same mechanical design, but they'll draw power first from their electric motor powered by a battery. They only use gasoline if they don't have electric power left.
