Design

The EV’s exterior has a sleek, modern, and aggressive design. The front grille screams electric, with the Nissan branding embedded centrally. The LED headlamps have a boxy appearance, with side indicators and mounted daytime running lamps on top.

As for charging, the vehicle can be fully charged within 15 to 18 hours at home, through a dedicated wall outlet, via the supplied universal charging cable. Furthermore, Nissan dealerships nationwide provide quick-charging stations that can charge the car to full in just 40 to 60 minutes.

Features of Nissan Leaf

The Nissan Leaf comes with the revolutionary e-Pedal technology, which allows the drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate, and stop using just one pedal–by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator. When the accelerator is fully released, the regenerative brakes are deployed automatically, bringing the car to a complete stop.

This makes the Nissan Leaf ideal for stop-and-go city traffic since the need to shift from one pedal to another is obviated, making driving simpler and more convenient.

The premium cabin is large enough to seat five people and has plenty of storage. An 8.0-inch floating infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, compatible with smartphones, will keep passengers entertained.
