Now on its 5th year, the Nissan LEAF is indeed breaking boundaries and setting the trend in the car industry. The 2015 Nissan LEAF continues to be the standard Electric Vehicle it has always been for the past years. It still offers the same driving manners, the same user-friendly features and is still offered at a reasonable price. The 5-passenger hatchback is roomy and comfortable, just the way you would want for your car except that you don’t have to worry about oil price hikes as it runs on the road smoothly without it. Nissan LEAF’s squat design is slowly emerging as the iconic car for electric vehicles not only because it is the world’s best selling electric car but also because of its stand out appearance and comfortable ride.
The overall stance of the 2015 Nissan LEAF is complemented by its lighting treatments with its headlights sweeping up front almost reaching the car’s roof while the taillights occupy most of the design at the back. Also found on its front, just above its grille is its charging port.
Inside is a roomy cabin. It has big windows and high roof which makes it easy for passengers to see outside. Its cargo space offers 24 cubic feet of space and when its 60/40-split rear seats are folded the space expands more to accommodate larger items.
The Nissan LEAF doesn’t make use of a shift lever you’d normally see in other cars, instead it sports a small sphere that snaps up for Reverse, side for Neutral, down for Drive and Park when the center button is pressed.
Powering the 2015 Nissan LEAF is an 80 kW lithium-ion battery and a 107-horsepower motor wherein the power is sent by a single speed transmission to its front-wheel. It usually takes about 8 hours to charge when using a 220-volt line for the base LEAF’s 3.6 kW power system, while the 6.6 kW takes about 5 hours to power up.
