62-40 kwh Lithium Ion

Overview:

Nissan Leaf is the world’s bestselling electric car. Since 2010, it’s sold more than 4,00,000 units globally and in the UK it enjoys a 36% share of the fast growing EV Market.

Nissan Leaf has the new Rivals like Hyundai Kona Electric. That’s why Nissan Company launched the Second generation Leaf, and added a new long range topping version with a bigger battery.

The more significant changes are under the bonnet or under the floor actually. This range topping model gets a 62 kWh Battery which joins the 40 kWh battery at rest of the Leafs in the lineup.

This Enhances the Leaf’s range to 239 Miles on a full charge, under the new WLTP test cycle, which is a 62 miles increase on the standard model.

Nissan Leaf Features include 8 Inch touch screen infotainment system, 7 Bose speakers stereo, plus you get Nissan’s Pro pilot semi-automatic driving assistance, which lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control.

The Nissan Leaf gets more power that is peak power is 160 Kw supposed to be the standard variant, which gets 110 Kw. It also gets 339 N-m of torque, and increased top speed of 97 miles per hour. It is really Quick.  

So if you are planning to buy a Nissan Leaf E+ Tekna we’d actually be tempted to stick with the cheaper standard version, if you can cope with the range. That’s because those models ride better and they can still get 128 miles off a full charge in real world driving conditions.

Where Leaf is starting to feel a bit of the pace, since the Kia e-Niro and Hyundai Kona Electric have come along, they’ve made this Leaf E+ look very expensive, that because both that car have longer range   

REASONS TO BUY: 

The 2021 Nissan Leaf E+ Tekna is still relatively soft, which is fine around town. Leg room is decent and good boot space.  

REASONS TO DON’T BUY: 

Practically the Leaf is 150 Kg heavier than the previous model, at higher speeds the vehicle is completely unsettled and in bumpy roads your head will bob constantly back and forth, that’s feeling annoying at driving.
