Introduced in 2010, the Nissan LEAF was one of the first mainstream electric vehicles sold in America. The LEAF underwent a redesign for 2018 for a fresh look including a roomier interior as well as better performance and efficiency. For 2022 Nissan LEAF is offered in five versions: LEAF S, SV, S Plus, SV Plus and LEAF SL Plus. LEAF S and SV are powered by a high-response 110 kW AC synchronous electric motor producing 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Power is supplied by a 40 kWh laminated lithium-ion battery for a range of 149 miles, and with a DC fast charger a 30-minute recharge will provide almost 90 miles of driving. LEAF Plus versions add a 62 kWh battery for a range of 226 miles as well as a more powerful 160 kW electric motor producing 214 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque.
