Most cars—even hybrids—release tons of CO2 tailpipe emissions every year. The Nissan LEAF® doesn’t use a single drop of gas. And no gas means no tailpipe, no fumes, and zero emissions.
Less Parts. Less Maintenance
Say goodbye to pricey oil changes and tune-ups. With fewer moving parts than any car you’ve ever owned, the Nissan LEAF® is ultra low maintenance.
The Regenerative Braking System captures energy while you coast or brake, recycling it back into usable power. A meter on the dashboard clearly displays whether you are consuming power, or gaining energy.
With twice the power and half the weight of the nickel-metal hydride batteries used in traditional hybrids, the available 30kWh lithium-ion battery helps make your ride ultra-efficient.
The available photovoltaic solar-panel rear spoiler converts sunlight to energy, charging its 12V accessory battery and helping power accessories like the stereo, climate control, and headlights.
The Nissan LEAF® is all about efficiency, but that doesn’t mean this 4-door, 5-passenger hatchback skimps on interior finish or size. It comes with available folding rear seats made from Bio Suede PET, tons of storage, a USB port, climate control, and more. It’s everything you’d expect in a premium car, even if it weren’t electric.
You free up an awful lot of room when you take out things like transmissions, oil filters, and radiators. With the 60/40 split rear seats up, you can fit in three child seats, and still have space for your golf bag in back. Fold them flat, and you’ll have a generous 30 cubic feet of versatility—including a handy cargo well that lets you keep valuables out of sight.
Nearby Charging Stations
The system offers you a map and list of nearby stations, based on your current location. Select one, and the Navigation System will let you know if that station is within your range, and provide directions.
Usage and Energy Economy
The display screen shows your current battery charge, and tells you how much power your interior climate control and other systems are using. The electric motor meter indicates power use during acceleration or regeneration, as well as during coasting or braking, as energy is converted back into the battery pack. Based on all this information, the Energy Economy page offers efficiency-boosting tips.
Around View® Monitor
Parking is a snap with the available Around View® Monitor.Using four cameras, the system creates a virtual bird’s-eye-view of the Nissan LEAF®, and transmits the image to the LCD monitor, for easier parking.
