The Leaf could be an ideal choice as a second or third vehicle, especially for those who primarily drive within city and suburban areas and don’t frequently embark on long trips. While it may not suit as the sole vehicle for long-distance travel, it excels in keeping costs and emissions low.

Introduced in 2018, the second generation of the Leaf represents advancements in electric vehicle (EV) technology. EVs have significantly extended their range on a single battery charge, while advancements in charging technology have reduced waiting times. It’s worth noting that the first-generation Leaf played a pioneering role in the EV market, being one of the first affordable electric vehicles outside of Tesla’s offerings. Even today, the Leaf remains an attractive option for budget-conscious buyers interested in transitioning to electric vehicles.

2024 brings no changes to the Leaf after a recent refresh. However, it’s speculated that this year or next might mark the end of its production.

The 2024 Nissan Leaf begins at $28,140 for the S trim, offering a maximum range of 149 miles. For the SV Plus model, priced at $36,190, the range extends to 212 miles on a full charge.

As expected, the Nissan Leaf’s cabin features a considerable amount of plastic, yet it’s assembled with sufficient quality, offering a functional overall design.

An appealing futuristic detail is the automatic transmission’s selector illuminated with a blue light. The predominant color scheme is black, complemented by seats upholstered in a suede-effect material.

The interior space is adequate for a subcompact hatchback, with rear legroom measuring 33.5 inches, providing ample comfort for average-sized adults.

The rear seats conveniently split and fold in a 60/40 configuration. The cargo area behind them offers a useful capacity of 23.6 cubic feet, expanding to 30 cubic feet when the seats are folded down.

The Leaf presents as a compact hatchback with a slightly elevated stance, a design choice we find practical.

Nissan’s updated grille design, featuring an illuminated badge, adds a modern touch to the Leaf’s appearance. Placing the charge port at the front eliminates concerns about its location.

The base S trim comes equipped with steel wheels, while the SV Plus trim features stylish 17-inch alloy wheels with a multi-spoke design, adding a touch of flair.

Optional upgrades include premium paint for $395 or a two-tone finish for $695.
