2014 Nissan LEAF

Buyer's Guide

NEW FOR 2014:

- Standard reverse camera on all models

Nissan’s all-electric LEAF silently wafts into 2014 with a new standard rear camera.

Last year’s update saw the LEAF become considerably more competitive against the likes of the Ford Focus Electric thanks to a new 6.6-kW onboard charger that slashes charge times in half when using a 240-volt power source.

All LEAFs are powered by an 80-kW electric motor that receives power from a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Charge times range from 21 hours on a standard household plug to around five hours from a 240-volt source. A fast-charge port (SV, SL) allows the LEAF to be charged up to 80 percent battery life in as little as 30 minutes. Total range is roughly 160 km. A special CARWINGS telematics feature, no-charge for 36 months, allows the operator to remotely monitor the battery, start the charging cycle or turn on the HVAC system through a mobile phone.

Trim levels are S, SV and SL.

Features on the S trim include 6.6 kW onboard charger, regenerative braking, portable tickle-charge cable (110-volt), cruise control, normal charge port, charge port light and lock, proximity key with push-button start, heated front and rear seats, heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic temperature control, 60/40 split fold-down rear sears with rear seat heater ducts, Bluetooth hands-free phone system, four-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with USB port, rear spoiler, splash guards, and a reverse camera.

SV trim adds Nissan Navigation System with seven-inch touch-screen monitor, NavTraffic, CARWINGS telematics system, six-speaker audio, 16-inch alloy wheels, hybrid heater system, auto-dimming rearview mirror, partially recycled cloth seats, passenger side map pocket, and quick charge port.

SL trim adds leather seating, LED headlights, automatic on/off headlights, fog lights, 17-inch 5-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels, HomeLink, photovoltaic solar-panel rear spoiler, cargo cover, seven-speaker Bose audio system, and Around View Monitor.

2011 Nissan LEAF

Love it!
It may be a little early to be a LEAF owner as there are very few charging stations available as of 2012, but for the day-to-day use of a professional couple who share a car and rive less than 75km round trip on any given day, this car is perfect.

Far more technology is included than any other at the same price point.

I love this car.

2012 Nissan LEAF

Electric car - The future of in-city travel
The look of a compact with the interior and comfort of an high-end vehicle. This car is perfect for in-city travels. The one I drive comes full equipped with all the high-end gadgets such as intelligent key, onboard computer (with GPS), side sensors, backup camera, etc. The only downside I find is the low recharge rate from standard electric outlet (close to 24 hours), the limited range (140KM at most). But a recharge at an high powered electric station takes about 8 hours. And the acceleration is a bit to desired when running in economy mode. It's a great car for technology lovers who live close to the work place and only need a car once in a while. I would recommend renting more than buyying until the electric car support network is better developed in your region.

2012 Nissan LEAF

Electric car, the future of in-city transportation
It's a futuristic car with the look of an economy car and the comfort and technology of a luxury one without the price tag. The version I drive come full equipped with on-board computer, rear camera view, side and front proximity sensors. Speed warning, etc, blue tooth connection for phone call and MP3 playing. The vehicule is totally silent. The only downside is the autonomy which is very limited (140KM) at most. Therefore, it's not a car useful for out-of-city outings. It's acceleration, in economy mode, is also to be desired. Maybe not a car to buy but certainlty a car to rent for city travel.
