Nissan Leaf Charging Range
The Nissan Leaf is one of the most efficient and city-friendly vehicles ever made by the manufacturer. Its range, charging capabilities, features, and options are quite impressive. Let’s go over what the 2023 version of this impressive electric vehicle (EV) has to offer:
Core Ratings, Charging Speed, and Range
The 2023 Nissan Leaf is available in the S and SV Plus trim levels. The SV, S Plus, and SL Plus trim levels were dropped as of 2023. This was done in order to better fill the needs and desires expressed by customers from across the nation. The 2023 Leaf’s core components include different batteries between the two trim levels.
The S has a 40 kWh lithium-ion battery tied to a 110 kWh electric motor generating 147 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. The SV Plus version has a 60 kWh battery hitched to a 160 kWh electric motor providing 214 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. Both battery and motor cores come set up with a continuously variable automatic transmission.
The two varieties of the 2023 Leaf charge at different rates depending on the charging unit or plug used. Both come with a 6.6 kWh onboard charger and a quick charging port. The onboard charger’s power uptake speed varies based on what it’s connected to.
It takes 35 hours to get to a full charge with a 110-volt source, eight to 11 hours to get to a full charge with a 220-volt source, and around 45 minutes to charge with a 440-volt source. The S Plus takes a bit longer to charge with each source type, getting to an average charge of 80% in the above amounts of time. The quick charge port takes the S to a charge of 80% in 40 minutes, while the same port takes the SV Plus to a charge of 80% in an hour.
Exterior Styling, Features, and Options
The 2023 Nissan Leaf has a remarkably smooth exterior style. It has a sharp-looking V-shaped EV grille plate with multi-lamp headlights. Its body lines are minimal, but they make this Leaf look futuristic. Its exterior measurements and turn radius make it perfect for navigating crowded city streets and packed parking lots.
Its standard exterior features include body-colored bumpers, intelligent automatic on-and-off aero-composite halogen headlights, lightly tinted glass, 16-inch covered steel wheels, chrome door handles, manually folding side mirrors, and a lip spoiler. Exterior options on this EV include fog lamps, 17-inch machine-finished aluminum alloy wheels, and heated versions of manually folding side mirrors.
Entertainment, Comfort, and Convenience Features and Options
The standard entertainment system for the 2023 Leaf includes a four-speaker sound system with speed-compensated volume control, SiriusXM satellite radio, a pair of first-row LCD monitors, and NissanConnect AM/FM radio. Its infotainment system is an 8-inch multi-touch version with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Siri Eyes-Free, iPod, Bluetooth, and hands-free texting assistant programming. The 2023 Leaf’s entertainment options include a six-speaker sound system and NissanConnect EV radio access with a GPS navigation unit, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Nissan’s precise door-to-door navigation programming. This version of the SiriusXM satellite radio system includes extra programming, such as SiriusXM Travel Link and SiriusXM Traffic.
The 2023 Nissan Leaf’s standard comfort features include six-way manually adjustable front seats, automatic air conditioning, a manually telescoping and tilting steering column, cloth upholstery, an air filtration system, and a center armrest. Comfort options in this EV include an HVAC system with under-seat ducts, two-way power-adjustable front seats with powered cushion tilting, heated eight-way power-adjustable front bucket seats with two-way power-adjustable lumbar supports, and a heated leather and metal-look steering wheel.
This well-engineered EV comes with standard convenience features, such as driver and passenger door bins, fade-to-off interior lighting, one-touch up and down power windows, an engine immobilizer, a 12-volt DC power outlet, an exterior temperature gauge, proximity key doors, push-button start, a day-night rearview mirror, auto-locking doors, and cruise control with steering wheel controls. Its convenience options include an auto-dimming version of the day-night rearview mirror and a HomeLink garage door transmitter.
Impressive Smart Safety Features
The 2023 Nissan Leaf is remarkably well equipped with high-tech safety features for the protection of drivers and their passengers. They include intelligent forward collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking, rear collision mitigation, intelligent lane intervention, lane-keeping assistance, and intelligent blind spot intervention. These ultra-responsive smart safety features pair with an array of tried-and-true standard safety features to form a reactive protective bubble for all occupants.
Those tried-and-true classic safety features include a tire-specific low-pressure warning system, rear child safety locks, ABS and driveline traction control, dual-stage driver and front passenger air bags, pre-tensioning three-point seatbelts, curtain first- and second-row air bags, and rear parking sensors. One of the front LCD monitors can be tied to a rearview monitor backup camera. Optional safety features include an aerial view 360-degree exterior camera system and the Nissan ProPilot system. The Nissan ProPilot system is an advanced cruise control system that allows drivers to set the distance between their Leaf and the vehicles ahead.
