Nissan Leaf Overview
The electric-powered Leaf has a 75-mile typical range. A full charge took us 6-hours using a 240-volt outlet or 16-hours using 120 volts, but since our tests, the charge times have been shortened. We measured the equivalent of 106-mpg. Running costs are extremely low: 3.5-cents per mile at the national average of 11-cents per kWh. The Leaf rides comfortably, but handling isn't particularly agile. The rear seat is roomy, but the cargo area is rather small. Standard features include a heated steering wheel and seats, and a rear-view camera, and top-level models get an electric heat system that uses 30-percent less energy. Reliability has been above average. We can no longer recommend the Leaf because it scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.
