It can be difficult to compare a hybrid like the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq to an electric vehicle like the 2019 Nissan LEAF. Each type of vehicle has their own advantages that are unique to their specific type of car. For instance, hybrids are typically cheaper but require stops at the pump now and then. An electric vehicle wouldn’t take any gas and can travel for long distances, but charging can take hours and a charging station may not be easily accessible depending on where you go.
