Introduced in 2010, the Nissan LEAF was one of the first mainstream electric vehicles sold in America. The LEAF underwent a redesign for 2018 with 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 that can add almost 90 miles of driving range after 30 minutes on a DC fast charge. Nissan also offers the LEAF Plus, which increases the range to 226 miles and sports a more powerful 214-horsepower motor.
