Nissan LEAF Trim Level Performance

A Nissan LEAF is an all-electric vehicle that comes in five different trims powered by two available motors.

The 110-kilowatt AC synchronous electric motor is standard in the LEAF S and LEAF SV. The motor can reach up to an EPA range of 149 miles with its 40 kWh battery from just one charge.*

  • 214 horsepower
  • EPA range of 215 miles from a single charge*
  • 62 kWh battery

The same 160-kilowatt motor in the LEAF S PLUS adds a little more efficiency with an EPA range of 226 miles on a single charge.* 

Nissan LEAF Technology: Infotainment

Next-level Nissan LEAF technology does more than power its motor. Technology is integral to the driver and passenger experience.

Inside the efficient LEAF is the available top technology for a plus drive and ride:

  • 7-inch information display
  • NissanConnect® 8-inch touch-screen display
  • Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant
  • 7-speaker Bose® Energy Efficient Series Premium Audio System

All these features, and many more, are available inside the Nissan LEAF.

Nissan LEAF Exterior

Electric vehicles change the world around a car, but how does the outside of the LEAF alter the driver's world?

The Nissan LEAF's exterior also includes design features for added driving convenience, like increased solar protection and parking convenience:

  • UV-reducing solar glass
  • Dual power outside mirrors
  • Automatic on/off headlights

Driving with peak exterior features elevates your car's environment, but how does a Nissan LEAF fit into your lifestyle?

  • Over 42 inches of front legroom
  • More than 23 cubic feet of trunk space
  • Up to 30 cubic feet of extra cargo space

The Nissan LEAF flexes to your family. The 60/40-split fold-down rear seats provide more space for luggage and hiking gear. Nissan's versatility fits different lifestyles, but how do the trim levels of the Nissan LEAF offer an individualized driving experience?
