Nissan Leaf Overview

The electric-powered Leaf has a 75-mile typical range. A full charge took 6 hours using a 240-volt outlet or 16 hours using 120 volts. 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. Standard features include a heated steering wheel and seats, and a rear-view camera. Nissan's around-view monitor is optional, 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.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
