Nissan EVs near Wilkesboro, NC

Nissan EVs

EVs are already the next big thing in the automotive industry. Yes, even the small ones.

Nissan’s always been ahead of the curve when it comes to EVs. The LEAF was one of the earliest EVs on the market and changed people’s perceptions about the category. All these years later, Nissan continues to be the flagbearer of the EV revolution, and we here at McNeill Nissan of Wilkesboro are proud to bring you the best of their lineup.

Why should I buy an EV instead of a gas vehicle?

There’s plenty of reasons why more people are switching to EVs every year:


  • Higher savings

With the fluctuation in gas prices over the last few years, the fuel efficiency of gas vehicles has made a lot of car owners nervous. With EVs, you don’t have to worry about gas prices at all. Just recharge at home, and you’re set.


  • Newer tech

Because of their perception as the future of the automobile industry, EV manufacturers tend to add more tech to their EVs, making them even more desirable. This could be in the form of added controls within the car, or even additional safety features.


  • Easier on the ears

Hate the “vroom vroom” of cars? EVs are for you. They’re super quiet pulling out of the driveway all the way to parking.


  • Government subsidies

The government’s making a big push to get more EVs on the road. As a result, they’re increasing the number of charging stations around the country, with some even available for free. Additionally, you can get significant tax credits when you purchase an EV—something that’s virtually unheard of with gas vehicles.

  • The Nissan LEAF

The latest LEAF is a compact EV. It’s a 4-door hatchback that’s known for its great performance and sharp aesthetics. Until 2019, it was the world’s highest-selling plug-in electric car. The 2024 Nissan LEAF is a strong contender to take that mantle back from Tesla.

The standard trim comes with a single electric motor that churns out 147 hp and carries a 40 kWh battery pack. The range is roughly 149 miles.

The Nissan LEAF SV Plus trim has a 214 hp electric motor that comes with a 62 kWh battery pack. The driving range for the SV Plus trim is roughly 215 miles.

The Nissan Ariya is an SUV in the same category as a Hyundai Ioniq 5 or a Kia EV6.

The base trim for the 2024 Ariya is powered by a 63 kWh battery and a 160 kW electric motor. This offers a roughly 250-mile range, while the highest-end Ariya has a range of 310 miles with a 290 kW dual motor at its heart.
