The 2018 Nissan Leaf is an all-electric, five-seat compact hatchback. It’s powered by a 110-kW electric motor that fed by a 40 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The output is 147 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. The 2018 Nissan Leaf is available in three trim levels: S, SV and SL.
When fully charged, the 2018 Nissan Leaf has an effective maximum range of about 150 miles. That’s sufficient to take most people from home to work and back, but longer trips will, of course, pose a challenge. As such, the Leaf is best for multicar households or those with shorter commutes. Another must is having a garage, ideally with a 240-volt charger. If you can check these boxes, though, the 2018 Nissan Leaf could really revolutionize your driving experience. It’s an electric car for the real world, and that’s an idea that everyone can get behind.
