Nissan Leaf is always in competition

Nissan Leaf is followed everywhere by two of its possible rivals, the diesel Volkswagen Golf GTD and the hybrid Lexus CT 200h.
You might think that when it comes to efficiency the Nissan Leaf is way ahead of the other two as it has an electric engine. Here is where you are wrong. Even if the Golf GTD and the Lexus CT are not electric they are very efficient and are worth taking into consideration.
The Japanese model is actually quite expensive. On the US market the model costs $ 25,280 and in the UK it costs GBP 23,990. The carmaker created the Leaf with an electric engine that can develop 80 kW and 280 Nm of torque and with one charge the car can run up to 160 km. This is not that much and sets the car in the short to medium distance vehicle category. We cannot say anything about the CO2 emissions and the fuel consumption as they are 0.
The Volkswagen Golf GTD has a 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine that can deliver 170 PS and 350 Nm of torque. Also the model consumes 5.3 l / 100 km of fuel on the highway and the CO2 emissions are around 139 g/km.
The last but not least, the Lexus CT 200h has a 1.8-liter VVT-I internal combustion engine and also an electric engine. The model is able to deliver 98 bhp and 142 Nm of torque thanks to the petrol engine. The electric motor adds extra 79 bhp and 207 Nm of torque. The carmaker declared that the car has 96 g/km CO2 emissions.
