Why Buy or Lease 2020 Nissan LEAF near Orange CA
Many automakers are just now making their foray into electric vehicles. That is not the case with Nissan. The Japanese automaker introduced the Leaf for the 2011 model year, which was long before designing and supporting an EV was a trendy thing to do. It even relaunched the Leaf for a second generation in 2018, and the new 2020 Nissan Leaf is a further refinement of that platform. Nissan has added more front and rear airbags and expanded the standard equipment, including Safety Shield 360, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Leaf is offered in two configurations: Leaf and Leaf Plus. There are also three trim levels to choose from: the base S, the up-level SV and the premium SL. Join us as we take a closer look at these configurations and trims across a wide range of important automotive categories.

Sixteen-inch aluminum wheels are standard, but the upper trims get 17-inch wheels. Optional equipment includes LED headlamps and heated side mirrors. The difference between Leaf and Leaf Plus is discussed more in the mechanical section, but note that the premium SL trim—which has distinct badging—is a Plus-specific trim level.

Mechanical - Nissan LEAF specs near Orange CA
With the 2020 Nissan Leaf, you have your choice of the Leaf and the Leaf Plus. The main difference here is the power output of the electric motor and the capacity of the battery pack. Both distribute that power to the front wheels. The Leaf powertrain features a 110-kW electric motor and a 40-kWh battery pack. The Leaf Plus powertrain, on the other hand, features a 160-kW electric motor and a 62-kWh battery pack. So, while the Leaf makes 147 horsepower, the Leaf Plus makes 214 hp. In both cases, the Leaf has an e-Pedal feature that lets the driver choose between two regenerative braking modes. One mode will slow the car when the pedal is released and recharge the battery, which allows for a one-pedal driving style. The other mode will allow the car to continue to coast. Both Leaf configurations can be plugged into either a 120-volt or 240-volt outlet. The Leaf is rated for 150 miles on a single charge. The Leaf Plus is rated for 215 miles.
