147-hp (110 kW) AC synchronous electric motor

Driving electric has more than a few unexpected benefits. Without a gas engine, of course there are no more fill-ups, but you also do away with a lot more. There are fewer moving parts overall, which translates into less maintenance. Now you just have to decide what to do with all the extra free time.

40 kWh lithium-ion battery

The Nissan LEAF’s 40 kWh lithium-ion battery pack has been developed in-house, rigorously tested, and has an extraordinary record of reliability, meaning you can feel confident you are driving some of the best battery technology around.

Portable charge cable (120 V/240 V)

Plug in for a Level 2 charge at home, no charger box installation required, with the new 240 V cable. Using the same plug as your home dryer, you can charge the all-new Nissan LEAF. Or, in a pinch, plug directly in to a regular electrical outlet for a 120 V trickle charge.

Quick Charge Port

Charge up to 80% in the time it takes you to enjoy lunch. The Quick Charge Port lets you "fill up" in a snap at public Quick Charge stations nationwide. [*]


It’s a completely new way to drive, and a whole lot of fun. Imagine having the option to drive with one pedal. Just press down for an instant rush and ease off to slow down. You can even hold the vehicle on a hill without ever touching the brake. Of course, going back to driving with two pedals is as easy as flipping a switch, but where’s the fun in that? [*]

Intelligent Trace Control

Enjoy hugging curves with handling that feels effortless. Intelligent Trace Control reads the situation and, if needed, can brake each wheel individually to help you steer smoothly through the corners. [*]

Active Ride Control

Bump? What bump? Active Ride Control can automatically apply the brakes and adjust motor torque to smooth out your ride, turning those mountains into molehills.



17" Machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels

The Nissan LEAF meets the road on stylish machine-finished 17” aluminum-alloy wheels.

LED headlights with LED signature Daytime Running Lights

See and be seen with impressively stylish LED headlights. A forward-thinking design and a strip of signature Daytime Running Lights in a sweeping boomerang-inspired shape complement the Nissan LEAF's overall modern design, while running more efficiently than traditional headlights.

Heated outside mirrors

Easily adjustable standard dual power heated outside mirrors provide clearer visibility on icy or foggy days.

Outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signal indicators

The Nissan LEAF's dual power outside mirrors feature LED turn indicator lights that let you signal your intentions.

Automatic on/off headlights

A sensor detects the level of light you are driving in and turns the headlights on or off automatically, when necessary.

Fog lights

Integrated into the front bumper, the fog lights are designed to create a low, wide projection to increase visibility under any conditions.

Aerodynamic underbody panels and rear diffuser

A flat, aerodynamic underbody and rear diffuser enhance performance by allowing air to flow smoothly underneath the Nissan LEAF.

Rear spoiler

Take on some style and shake off some drag with this sporty rear spoiler.

Charge port with light and lock

Charging overnight? Get a clear look at your charge port with a handy light. If you're parked in your driveway, a secure lock helps you stay plugged-in, worry-free.



Intelligent Driver Alertness

The Nissan LEAF helps keep an eye out for you. This forward-thinking technology monitors your steering patterns and if it detects unusual steering activity, it will alert you with a chime, and by lighting a coffee cup icon on your display, letting you know it may be time for a break. [*]

Rear underseat heater ducts

Keep your passengers happy and comfortable. Ducts under the front seats help send hot air to the second row, for even heating of the entire cabin.

Hybrid heater system

Stay warm without being such a drain on your battery. The Nissan LEAF's hybrid heater system uses an external capacitor to heat your cabin, while expelling colder air outside. It's a forward-thinking piece of engineering that helps keep you cozy and on the road longer.

Auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink® Universal Garage Door Opener

The auto-dimming rearview mirror features the HomeLink® Transceiver System, which lets you control a combination of your garage door, house lights, security gates, and alarms. Additionally, the mirror detects the glare from bright headlights and automatically dims, helping you to keep your eyes where they need to be. [*]

Removable cargo cover

The rear cargo cover keeps your valuables contained, out of sight from prying eyes, and can be removed when not in use. [*]

8-way power adjustable driver’s bucket seat with 2-way adjustable lumbar

Get your seat just how you like it. The 8-way adjustable driver’s seat with 2-way adjustable lumbar support allows you to customize your comfort to match your needs.

Leather-appointed seats

The leather-appointed front and rear seats offer you and your passengers exceptional comfort and style.

Heated front seats

Enjoy added comfort on demand with stylish and modern heated seats that help keep you cozy on cold days.

Heated steering wheel

The heated steering wheel warms your hands for comfort and better mobility.

Bose® Energy Efficient Series Premium Audio System with seven speakers

It's sound so good, you'll feel like you're in the front row. Engineered specifically for the interior of your Nissan LEAF, the Bose® Energy Efficient Series Premium Audio System fills the cabin with concert-hall quality sound, emanating efficiently through its seven speakers. [*]


Automatic Emergency Braking

Automatic Emergency Braking can help save you from a potential frontal collision. It monitors your speed and distance between you and the car ahead and can let you know if you need to slow down. It can even automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision or lessen the severity of an impact. [*]

Blind Spot Warning

Blind Spot Warning helps you change lanes with confidence. It keeps an eye on the blind spot area and gives you a heads-up if it detects a vehicle hiding there. [*]

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Rear Cross Traffic Alert helps you back out of a space with more confidence. It watches around the rear of your Nissan LEAF and can warn you about cars it detects creeping up on you from either side. [*]

Intelligent Around View Monitor

The Intelligent Around View Monitor uses four cameras to give you a virtual composite 360° bird’s-eye view of your vehicle, with selectable split-screen close-ups of the front, rear, and curbside views, so you can get a better look. This system also gives you an on-screen heads-up when it detects moving objects near your vehicle. We’re looking at you, shopping cart. [*]

Nissan Advanced Air Bag System

Nissan Advanced Air Bag System includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. The inflation rate of these dual-stage air bags adjusts depending on crash severity and seat belt usage. In addition, supplemental air bags are built into the front seats to offer side-impact protection and move with you as you adjust your seating position. Also, roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags help provide head protection for both rows of outboard occupants. [*]

4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)

The braking system responds automatically to changing conditions. ABS helps you maintain control by working to prevent wheel lockup during emergency situations.

Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS)

This standard feature—sometimes called stability control—continuously monitors your steering and braking actions, senses any oversteer or understeer, and compensates by reducing motor speed and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels. In addition, Traction Control System can sense front wheel slip or spin and responds by instantly helping reduce motor output which helps you both regain grip and maintain control of the road. [*]

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Easy-Fill Tire Alert

When it comes to your tire pressure, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System takes away any guessing. A symbol on your dash illuminates when the pressure is low. And when you're filling your tires, the Easy-Fill Tire Alert lets you know—with a friendly beep—when they've got the right amount of air. [*]
