New 2017 Nissan LEAF at Reedman-Toll Nissan for Bethesda, MD

The Nissan LEAF was the first battery electric vehicle introduced to the automobile market. Six years later, Nissan still holds a firm position in the electric vehicle market. The 2017 LEAF is not a hybrid car, as some might presume. It is completely electric. Drivers who own the LEAF will never have to pump gas and they can take pride in the fact that their vehicle releases zero emissions. The 2017 LEAF model carries through with its previous model, but all trims are now equipped with the same 30-kWh lithium-ion battery. This battery has a 107 mile driving range when fully charged. The 2017 LEAF has a quiet cabin, spacious cargo area, and upholstery in the SV model that is sustainably sourced. Getting around the city in the LEAF is easy, economical and good for the planet.

Under the LEAF's Hood

The Nissan LEAF is powered by a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery, which is stored under the floor boards of the vehicle.  This conveniently helps lower the center of gravity for optimal handling. The battery is also half the weight of hybrid vehicle batteries, making the LEAF even more efficient. The lithium-ion battery powers an 80 kW AC motor, which can generate 187 lb-ft of torque and up to 107 horsepower. The electric motor also converts energy from braking, which helps extend the battery charge. When connected to a 240-volt Level 2 AC source (which can be installed in your garage or also found in multiple charging stations all over the U.S.), the 3.6kW charger charges the battery in approximately 7 hours and the 6.6-kW charger is even faster, charging the battery in 6 hours. There is also a quick-charge port feature available on the lower trim and standard on the higher trims, which reduces the charging time dramatically. As mentioned above, the LEAF boasts a 107 mile driving range on a fully charged battery.  The LEAF has an EPA rating of 112 MPGe combined. MPGe refers to miles per gallon equivalent, which measures the distance a car can travel electrically on the same amount of energy that 1 gallon of gas can produce.
