The 2021 Nissan Leaf has gone on sale in the USA. There are two powertrain options.
The Leaf with a 40-kWh battery and a 110-kW motor covers 149 miles on one charge, while the extended-range Leaf Plus can boast 226 miles of range achieved due to a 62-kWh battery and a 160-kW electric motor.
ProPILOT Assist, standard Safety Shield 360 and NissanConnect services are available, as well as standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Both versions can be charged up to 80% in 40-45 min with a fast charge port. The cars come with a portable charging cable to plug into either a 120-volt outlet or any 240-volt outlet. You don’t need having a Level 2 charger at home to charge a Leaf.
The roomy cabin for 5 occupants includes a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat. The luggage space offers 30 ft3 for storage with the second row folded down.
