The Nissan LEAF is one of the longest-running electric vehicles on the road, offering an affordable and practical option for those wanting to drive a zero-emission vehicle. It was introduced before any Tesla rolled out of the factory and proved an interest in EVs, even though it sported a quirky look and a short driving range. The second-generation LEAF has evolved with more traditional styling and an extended driving range. In this post by Nissan Guam, we'll look at the 2023 Nissan LEAF.
For the 2023 model year, Nissan has updated the LEAF with a restyled front end and reduced the number of trims offered. The revised grille, front bumper, and headlights with a darker housing may be difficult to spot at first glance, but the illuminated Nissan badge on the grille is easier to see at night. The LEAF is now offered in two models: the base LEAF S with a smaller battery pack and shorter driving range, and the LEAF SV Plus with a larger battery pack and more extended driving range.
The vehicle provides comfortable driving, trademark EV torque at low speeds, and a handy hatchback body style for moving more oversized items. The larger battery pack provides enough range to meet most needs.
The LEAF has a roomy interior, ample passenger space, and a reasonably sized storage area. Its dashboard includes a 7-inch display for the infotainment system, which comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Moreover, LEAF SV Plus comes with an expanded 8-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, and a premium Bose audio setup.
Regarding safety, the LEAF comes standard with Nissan's Safety Shield 360 suite of driver assistance features, including automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and lane departure warning. The LEAF also received a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Overall, the 2023 Nissan LEAF provides a reliable and practical electric driving experience at an affordable price point.
