2012 Chevy Volt versus Nissan Leaf Mash-up Drag Race

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 plug-in Chevrolet Volt and the new all electric Nissan Leaf are not what most people would consider performance cars. In fact they are designed to get people from point A to point B using the least amount of energy and burning the least amount of oil. If you think about it...in some ways they are the ultimate economy cars but that doesn't mean they can't be fun to drive. To determine which of these two new revolutionary cars is the better performance machine we put them to the test the good old fashioned way: with an electric car drag race. So which one is faster? Watch the video to find out.

Electric cars comparison : BMW i8 v Holden Volt v Mitsubishi PHEV v Nissan Leaf v Toyota Prius
Dan and Tegan put five classes of electric vehicles to the test - ranging from compact city cars, to the new BMW i8 sports car. The Toyota Prius has been the standard in hybrid motoring for the past decade, but now there are plenty of choices for buyers. Drivers now have a choice for electric power in a multitude of segments. For the test, Dan and Tegan have charged all the cars and will run them all on the same course to see what kind of range each car gets. The Toyota Prius is the only car on test that cannot be plugged in. The electric motor is charged by the regenerative braking system and operates as an EV at speeds under 50km/h. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has a petrol motor driving the front wheels and an electric motor driving the rear wheels. The petrol motor cuts in under stronger acceleration. The Holden Volt (sold as the Chevrolet Volt and Opel Ampera in other markets) will use its electric power until charge is depleted, the petrol motor operating as charger and range extender. Performance is much more impressive than the other petrol / electric derivatives. The Nissan Leaf is entirely electric and has no petrol backup. The range is longer than the other hybrid cars, but you need to make sure you don't run the battery flat - and it takes 8-hours to charge. The BMW i8 also has an electric motor driving the front wheels and a petrol engine driving the rear - providing AWD performance. The i8 isn't as economical as other hybrids, but is more economical than a comparable sports car. It out performs all the other EV cars on test in both speed and fun! While all cars have their plus and minus points, buyers now have economical hybrid options in all main car categories. http://www.caradvice.com.au/327127/?yt_desc - Read the article here.
