The LEAF achieves an impressive 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. It utilizes a 110 KW AC synchronous electric motor that now rivals the output of conventional gasoline powered engines. A 40-kWh lithium-ion battery pack manages an EPA-rated 150 miles per charge, granting lots of versatility and confidence for the average commuter. An upgraded 62 kW/hour battery pack upgrade is available, and it brings the range of the LEAF to 226 miles, making its range very similar to conventional gasoline-powered models of similar size.
The LEAF uses Nissan's ePedal system, which provides aggressive regenerative braking, allowing for a unique one pedal acceleration and braking experience. Drivers back off the accelerator while cruising until they come to a complete stop, making driving around town a breeze.
All LEAFs have a 6.6 kW onboard charger that achieves a full charge in about 8 hours. Nissan also offers a fast-charging cable that can be plugged into either a 120- or 240-volt outlet. With a level-3 fast charger, the LEAF can recover 90 miles of range in just 30 minutes. Nissan says that the battery can retain 90% of its capacity after 500 charge/discharge cycles (approximately 60,000 miles). The company will continue its current warranty, guaranteeing about 70% of original capacity or more for eight years or 100,000 miles.
The S, SV and SL trim levels remain the same as previous years.
Standard features on the S include 16-inch alloy wheels, emergency automatic braking, 8-inch information display and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, Hill Start Assist, hands-free Bluetooth phone system, automatic temperature control and Nissan Intelligent Key with push-button start. The S trim needs to add quick charge cables while they come equipped as standard for all other trims.
The midlevel SV trim gets 17-inch wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and adaptive cruise control. The All-Weather Package on the S and SV includes heated seats and steering wheel, heated outside mirrors and rear heating ducts.
The Technology Package option on the SV trim includes LED lighting, 8-way-power seats, and adaptive cruise control. The top-line SL trim includes standard LED headlights, heated outside mirrors, leather seating, 8-way-power driver seat, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, and premium 7-speaker Bose audio system.
Advanced safety features across all trims include, 10 airbags, a rearview camera, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear Automatic Braking and Pedestrian Detection.
The LEAF's competition includes the FIAT 500e, the Chevrolet Bolt and the Volkswagen e-Golf. The FIAT, the least-expensive of the crowd, comes in at a slightly higher price than the LEAF but only offers 84 miles of range per charge. The Volkswagen e-Golf offers 125 miles of range but is priced higher more than the LEAF. The Chevy Bolt, on the other hand, offers a very strong 238 miles per charge although it's price is higher, making the LEAF the most electric miles for the money today.
