Looking to go Electric? Find your perfect Nissan Leaf at the Desira Nissan Electric Vehicle Centres in Norwich and Great Yarmouth
Electric vehicle pioneer Nissan’s second-generation Leaf pushes the boundaries for performance, power and range.
The hi-tech Leaf, the first all-electric car from a major manufacturer and the world’s best-selling EV, replaces the original model’s curvaceous contours with a bolder, more futuristic design.
The first-generation 24kWh Leaf could drive up to 124 miles on a charge and the later 30kWh version up to 155 miles. The second-generation Leaf’s electric motor, mated to an automatic gearbox, has a 40kWh battery, providing 320Nm of torque to 3,283rpm, then a maximum 150PS of power to 9,795rpm in Acenta, N-Connecta and Tekna trims. New E+ Tekna has an even more powerful 62kWh battery for 340Nm and 217PS, so the Leaf is a mean, green machine with a smooth, eerily quiet powertrain.
The 40kWh Leaf has a real-world WLTP testing range of 168 miles in normal driving – 242 miles in urban driving with eco mode. E+ Tekna has a longer normal driving range of up to 239 miles.
A front flap reveals two charging points – one for a domestic three-pin plug, taking up to 21 hours, and a 7kW home wall charger which takes 7.5 hours. The other plug point is for 50kW public fast chargers with an 80pc top-up taking 40 to 60 minutes.
A unique e-Pedal, which can be switched on and off, makes driving easy and relaxing. Press the throttle to go, lift off to slow to a complete stop - while also adding charge to the battery - rather than use the brake.
ProPilot semi-autonomous driving system, standard on Tekna models, maintains speed, distance from the vehicle in front and within the lane markings in stop-start traffic or cruising if you keep your hands on the wheel. ProPilot Park allows hands-off, feet-off forwards or backwards parallel and bay parking.
The Leaf doesn’t sacrifice boot space for battery power with its 385-litre load space and 60/40 split-fold rear seat backs.
