2016 Nissan Leaf® Exterior
No gas, ever.
The 100% electric Nissan LEAF® motor is powered exclusively by an advanced lithium-ion battery that you can charge at home, or on-the-go. Meanwhile, hybrids have to carry around their electric drivetrains plus their gas engines.
Most cars-even hybrids-release tons of CO2 tailpipe emissions every year. The Nissan LEAF® doesn't use a single drop of gas. And no gas means no tailpipe, no fumes, and zero emissions.
Efficiency in every detail
It's designed for efficiency, and that doesn't just mean the electric motor. With an aerodynamic body, regenerative brakes, and available LED low-beam headlights that use half the energy of traditional ones, the Nissan LEAF® gets more miles and more fun out of every kilowatt.
Home charging dock
The home charging dock lets you refuel your Nissan LEAF® in the comfort and convenience of your garage. That's right-you refuel at home.
Charging stations by the thousands are springing up all over America. They're usually located in electric-vehicle-only parking stalls. And with select states offering EVs the unlimited use of carpool lanes, getting to one is a cinch. [*]
*HOV / Carpool lane access varies by state. Please consult state laws for eligibility.
2016 Nissan Leaf® Performance
The Silent Treatment Now Lasts A Lot Longer
Do you hear that? No? Good. Because you shouldn't. Electric motors don't make noise like internal combustion engines. The 2016 LEAF's virtually silent motor can take you farther than ever before on a single charge- up to 107 miles.[*]
*2016 Nissan LEAF S trim EPA range is 84 miles. Actual range may vary with driving conditions - use for comparison only. 2016 Nissan LEAF SV/SL trim EPA range is 107 miles. Actual range may vary with driving conditions - use for comparison only.
Performance you wouldn't get
from a V8
You've never driven anything like the Nissan LEAF®, and you've probably never felt anything like its instant torque. The power is there when you touch the pedal. There is no lag, no revving-up or shifting gears-it just goes.
Incredibly quiet driving
Say goodbye to the vibration and engine noise of every other car you've ever driven. The advanced 80kW AC synchronous electric motor provides the quietest, smoothest ride you've ever experienced.
2016 Nissan Leaf® Interior
Get Practical Without Giving Up Fun
From the moment you hear its signature power-up chime, you're in for a blast behind the wheel of the Nissan LEAF®. An available heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel will keep your hands warm on chilly mornings. Ultra modern gauges and an easy-to-read Display Drive Computer puts information like range, battery charge level, and power usage info front and center. Fun that's efficient. Practical that's cool. The best of all worlds, all in one car.
Innovation For Five
The Nissan LEAF® is all about efficiency, but that doesn't mean this 4-door, 5-passenger hatchback skimps on interior finish or size. It comes with available folding rear seats made from Bio Suede PET, [*] tons of storage, a USB port, [**]climate control, and more. It's everything you'd expect in a premium car, even if it weren't electric.
*Cloth contains Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a recycled material.
**Driving is serious business and requires your full attention. If you have to use the connected device while driving, exercise extreme caution at all times so full attention may be given to vehicle operation.
Park. Reverse. Drive. All the normal settings are there. But why settle for normal? Shift the advanced drive selector into B-Mode to increase the regenerative braking force, and brake response.
You free up an awful lot of room when you take out things like transmissions, oil filters, and radiators. With the 60/40 split rear seats up, you can fit in three child seats, and still have space for your golf bag in back. Fold them flat, and you'll have a generous 30 cubic feet of versatility-including a handy cargo well that lets you keep valuables out of sight. [*]
*Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and distribution. Always secure all cargo.
2016 Nissan Leaf® Technology
Nissan Navigation System
The available Nissan Navigation System makes driving your Nissan LEAF® an ultra-efficient and confident experience. [*]
*Never program while driving. GPS mapping may not be detailed in all areas or reflect current road status.
The Driving Range screen pinpoints your current location using GPS, and creates a simple map that illustrates the range of your Nissan LEAF® in real time. As you travel, the Driving Range adjusts to reflect the changing circumstances of your battery charge, current location and driving conditions. [*]
*Actual distance will vary depending on environmental conditions, driving/charging habits, weather, speed, climate control use, and battery age.
Nearby Charging Stations
The system offers you a map and list of nearby stations, based on your current location. Select one, and the Navigation System will let you know if that station is within your range, and provide directions. [*]
*Public charging stations are third-party owned not within Nissan's control. Availability of charging stations not guaranteed.
Usage and Energy Economy
The display screen shows your current battery charge, and tells you how much power your interior climate control and other systems are using. The electric motor meter indicates power use during acceleration or regeneration, as well as during coasting or braking, as energy is converted back into the battery pack. Based on all this information, the Energy Economy page offers efficiency-boosting tips.
