Nissan Leaf, a 100% electric vehicle, is the flagship of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision, which aims to provide greater autonomy, greater electrification and greater connectivity to mobilize people to a better world.

• Less maintenance is required. Under the Nissan Intelligent Power pillar, without having a naphtha engine that requires fluids and other components such as filters, spark plugs and clips, Nissan Leaf, with its electric battery, reduces maintenance requirements.
• Long autonomy and high performance. The vehicle has a range of 389 km in the urban cycle according to the WLTP (270 km in the combined cycle) and 240 km depending on the EPA cycle, allowing the driver to travel longer. With the new e-Powertrain technology, the new Nissan Leaf delivers a power of 110 kW, which increases acceleration and driving enjoyment.
