It was made available in October in Japan, but shoppers elsewhere will have to wait a little longer.

As an all-electric car, the LEAF is far from your ordinary automobile. There is no need to worry about gas mileage or even engine oil. Instead, LEAF drivers think about charge mileage. On one full charge (about eight hours with a 6kW charger), the LEAF can go 155 miles before needing another power boost. The new 40kW battery is partly responsible for the improved driving range. The output of the LEAF has also been improved to 110kW as opposed to 80kW. This allows the car to hit a 0-60 time of 7.9 seconds. The LEAF also has 147 horsepower under the hood, which is more than a lot of people might expect from an all-electric car.
