Nissan Leaf

2018
Nissan Leaf 2018 4-door hatchback Trim Shown: 2018 SL 4-door hatchback FWD Direct
The 2018 Nissan Leaf electric car has been significantly updated with a more powerful electric motor, longer-lasting battery pack that promises 150 miles of driving range, and new driver-assist features. With a base price of $29,990, the new Leaf is priced slightly cheaper than the outgoing version. Against more expensive rivals like the Chevrolet Bolt and Tesla Model S, the Leaf is a bargain. However, both the Chevy and Tesla boast significantly longer driving ranges. Nissan offers new tech features, such as Pro Pilot Assist and E-Pedal, to help reduce driver fatigue by taking over some--though not all--driving functions, when conditions permit their operation. Forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking is standard. The new Leaf will go on sale in early-2018.

2017
Nissan Leaf 2017 4-door hatchback Trim Shown: 2017 SL 4-door hatchback FWD Direct
The all-electric Leaf that we tested has a 75-mile typical range. A full charge took us 6 hours using a 240-volt outlet, but charge times have been shortened since our tests. We measured the equivalent of 106 mpg, and running costs are 3.5 cents per mile at the national average of 11 cents per kWh. The ride is comfortable, 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 top models get electric heating that uses 30 percent less energy. For 2017, the Leaf has a bigger standard 30-kWh battery with a claimed 107-mile range. Reliability has been above average, but we can't recommend the Leaf because it scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test. A redesign is due to be introduced soon. For 2018, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking is standard.

Nissan Leaf 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 SL
Holding the distinction of being the first widely available and affordable all-electric car, the five-seat Nissan LEAF hatchback has typical range of approximately 75-miles. In our 2011 tests, a full charge took six hours using a 240-volt power source or 16 hours using 120 volts. Since our test, charge times have been shortened through updates to the car. At low speeds the extraordinarily quiet LEAF feels quick and rides comfortably. Cabin access is easy and the rear seat is fairly roomy. We measured 3.16 miles per kWh, 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. Model year 2013 brought a faster onboard charger and a cheaper S version. However, 2013 and later LEAF models scored Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.
