Best Used Cars Under 20000 – If you are looking for a good meal for an electric car, do not leave the Nissan Leaf.
To maintain a price of less than $ 20,000, you may have to return to 2015. For BMW i3, we can not find much out there for less than $ 25,000, even if you return to 2014, the first year.
For 2016, Leaf comes with an optional 30-kWh battery with a distance of 172 kilometers in the top two trims – a boost from the standard 135-kilometer range.

By 2017, Nissan makes greater battery standards on all three trim (S, SV, and SL). If you can find the Leaf 2017, the average asking price on the Canadian Black Book is $ 20,500.
Surprisingly, unless Ontario trims electric vehicle incentives for $ 14,000, you can earn a new Leaf 2018 ($ 35.998 MSRP) in the mid-$ 20,000 range, before taxes.
2015 Nissan Leaf
First generation: 2012-2017
Average demand price for base: $ 19,309
Original MSRP: $ 31,798 (excluding rebates in B.C, Ontario, and Quebec)
Transmission / Drive: One direct speed / Front wheel
Engine: 107-hp, 80-kilowatt electric motor
Advertised range: 135 kilometers (30-kWh battery)
Fuel economy: 18.4 kWh / 100 km (2.1 Le / 100 km)
When it first came out, Nissan helped the electric car hand over the new Leaf and into the mainstream.
“It pioneered the segment by driving like a regular compact car, but with the affordability of a family sedan and persuading thousands of buyers to make the EV jump,” Edmunds review website said. “Short spending three times as much for Tesla Model S, buyers looking for a versatile electric car would be happy with Leaf.”
Edmunds says Leaf offers “quick acceleration from stops, though rising to highway speeds can feel a bit belaboured” compared to other faster electric rivals.
Consumer Reports likes low operating costs, luxury cars, instant power delivery, quietness, width, high doors that make easy access and tight spinning circles.
Not infatuated with the limited range, long charging time, high pitched whining, and lack of agility overall.
This gives Nissan Leaf 5 out of five for reliability.
There are three withdrawals, including improvements to passenger side airbags that may not function properly in collisions.
BMW i3 2014
First generation: 2014-present
Average price requested for base: $ 26,610
Original MSRP: $ 44,950 (excluding rebates in British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec)
Transmission / Drive: Single-speed direct / Rear-wheel
Engine: 170-hp, 80-kilowatt, optional 34-hp electric motor, optional 650cc two-cylinder engine
Advertised range: 130 km (battery 21.6-kWh)
Fuel economy: 16.8 kWh / 100 km (1.9 Le / 100 km)
If you can get past the looks, i3 makes it very easy to be green.
“There is no electric car that can match the sporty performance of i3, the use of interior, and top-class facilities, except for Tesla Model S is much more expensive,” said Edmunds.
For the other $ 4,000 new, the anxious range can get a small gas motor to give you an extra distance of 100 km or more when the battery runs out. Used, the average demand price is almost the same for both versions.
“Inside, the i3 is not as luxurious as other BMWs – the fabric seats are made of natural fibers and materials made from recycled items are everywhere,” Globe Drive said.
Consumer Reports says the i3 is “very energy efficient”, fun to drive and easy to park.
The magazine complaint? Limited reach, even with gas auxiliaries. Plus, you have to open the front door to get into the back seat.
It delivers 2014 i3 three out of five for reliability.
There are three withdrawals, including potential fuel leaks in models with range extenders.
