The Nissan Leaf was the aboriginal avant-garde electric car to be bogus and awash in ample numbers, and has gone on to become the bestselling electric car in history. But Nissan is now arena catch-up.
It’s not accessible to buy an electric car with over 200 afar of ambit for beneath $40,000, but aback the second-generation Leaf launched in 2017, it could alone aggregation an EPA-rated 150 afar of range. Enter the 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus. Acknowledgment to a above array pack, this new archetypal has up to 226 afar of range. It’s got added ability than the accepted Leaf, too. But it’s additionally added expensive.
The 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus starts at $37,445 – a $6,560 exceptional over the standard-range Leaf (all prices accommodate a binding $895 destination charge). Our analysis car was additionally a range-topping SL model, which rang up at $43,920. The SL includes account like covering seats, LED headlights, and Nissan’s ProPilot Assist disciplinarian aid, but additionally comes with a ambit penalty. Both the SL and the mid-range SV are rated at 215 afar of range; alone the abject S trim akin achieves the best 226 miles.
Nissan did a complete 180 with the administration of the current-generation Leaf. Breadth the first-generation Leaf advertised its electric powertrain with sci-fi styling, its almsman looks like an accustomed hatchback. Administration cues, including the “V-Motion” grille and “floating” roof line, are adopted from added accepted Nissan models. As with the first-generation Leaf, the allegation anchorage is housed in the adenoids of the car. But this time it’s anxiously hidden amid the grille and awning seam. Visually, the Plus archetypal is duplicate from the standard-range Leaf, with alone active badging to appearance that you’ve splurged for the added range.
The autogenous additionally carries over from the standard-range Leaf. Best of it is accepted Nissan fare, acceptation a rather alive architecture let bottomward by cheap-looking materials. The all-embracing commonality with added Nissan models makes the Leaf feel reassuringly normal, until you go to put it into drive. In abode of a accepted lever, you get a annular accessory that you allegation to advance about like a computer abrasion to baddest drive or about-face (park is a button on top). The shifter carries over from the first-generation Leaf, but its form-over-function architecture seems added out of abode in the added conservatively-styled second-generation model.
Like the standard-range Leaf, the Plus has an almighty alpine active position that we begin to be a bit awkward. That, forth with the council column’s abridgement of adaptability (it tilts but doesn’t telescope) fabricated it adamantine to acquisition a acceptable active position. The advanced seats are appealing comfortable, though, and the car offers acceptable apparent afterimage (supplemented by a 360-degree camera arrangement on our analysis car) admitting a steeply-raked windshield and blubbery rear pillars.
The Leaf is acceptable the best applied electric car best buyers will be able to get their calmly on.
The Leaf Plus comes accepted with an 8.0-inch axial touchscreen display, but you accept to advancement from the abject S trim akin to the SV to get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The infotainment arrangement doesn’t accept a lot of accretion and whistles, but at atomic it’s accessible to acquisition a SiriusXM station. We additionally admired the blueprint of the agenda apparatus array display, which featured bold, simple cartoon that conveyed advice easily.
The Leaf is acceptable the best applied electric car best buyers will be able to get their calmly on. The Chevrolet Bolt EV and BMW i3 are both abate hatchbacks, while the Tesla Archetypal 3 is a sedan, with a block instead of a rear hatch. Many added electric cars, including the Kia Niro EV, Volkswagen e-Golf, and Hyundai’s Ioniq Electric and Kona Electric, aren’t accessible nationwide.
If you don’t alive in a accompaniment breadth those cars are available, you aren’t missing too abundant aback it comes to commuter and burden room. The Leaf is abreast the top of the accumulation on commuter space, and offers added burden amplitude than alike the tall-roofed Kia Niro EV with its rear seats in place. However, burden amplitude doesn’t badly advance with the rear seats folded, as it does in best added electric hatchbacks.
The Leaf Plus gets its added ambit acknowledgment to a bigger array backpack – 62 kilowatt-hours, compared to 40 kWh for the accepted Leaf – but that’s not the alone affair Nissan upgraded. The Plus additionally has added power. Its 214 application and 250 pound-feet of torque are increases of 67 hp and 14 lb-ft over the standard-range Leaf.
Zipping through cartage will put a smile on your face.
You can feel the added ability from abaft the wheel. Breadth the standard-range Leaf acquainted appealing abject above antecedent burke tip-in, the Leaf Plus accelerates angrily up to artery speeds. That adds article that was ahead missing from the active experience: fun. Zipping through cartage will put a smile on your face. But the Leaf still isn’t a fast car. Nissan didn’t accommodate any dispatch numbers, but we’d be afraid if the Leaf Plus could bout the manufacturer-estimated 5.3-second aught to 60 mph time of a abject Tesla Archetypal 3.
We additionally ambition Nissan had additionally upgraded the abeyance aback they fettled the powertrain. As with the standard-range Leaf, the Plus archetypal had the anatomy cycle of a 1970s Lincoln Continental in corners, but after the able ride to match. Again, the Tesla Archetypal 3 outclasses the Nissan here, but so does the Chevrolet Bolt EV. The Chevy feels added nimble, abacus to the fun factor. While it has beneath application (200 hp) than the Leaf Plus, the Bolt EV has added torque (266 lb-ft) and weighs less.
The Leaf Plus does accept one ambush its rivals can’t match. Now every electric car has adorning braking, which harvests activity from deceleration to recharge the array pack. It agency you apathetic bottomward a bit aloof by absolution off the accelerator pedal, agnate to agent braking in an internal-combustion car. Nissan took things a footfall added with e-Pedal. This accepted affection combines adorning braking with the car’s accepted abrasion brakes, so you about never allegation to blow the anchor pedal. The arrangement will apathetic the Leaf to a complete stop if you let it. This works abundant in stop and go traffic, and takes the assumption out of aback to await on to await on adorning brakes, and aback not to. If it you don’t like it, you can consistently about-face it off.
Our analysis car was able with Nissan’s ProPilot Assist system. It’s agnate in abstraction to Tesla’s Autopilot or Cadillac’s Super Cruise, acceptance the car to accelerate, brake, and break centered in its lane on highways while the disciplinarian keeps a active eye on the tech. Unlike Autopilot, ProPilot Assist can’t assassinate lane changes; flicking the turn-signal axis deactivates the arrangement until the disciplinarian has completed the maneuver. ProPilot Assist is added adult than any disciplinarian aids offered in added non-Tesla electric cars, but that doesn’t beggarly abundant in the absolute world.
Nissan advised ProPilot Assist to assignment on highways with bright lane markings, bright weather, and an active driver. Beneath those conditions, it works well. Acceleration, deceleration, and council ascribe are smooth. The arrangement additionally responded bound aback accepting cut off by added cars, a common accident if you drive at the acceleration absolute anywhere aural 50 afar of New York City, as we were. However, we did acquisition some curves on our analysis breadth of artery that were too aciculate for the system. ProPilot Assist didn’t administer abundant council angle, sending the car benumbed over the white lines.
Situations like that highlight that ProPilot Assist should not be abashed with free driving. It basically adds lane absorption on top of adaptive cruise control, and demography your calmly off the caster for alike a few abnormal will activate a admonishing to pay attention. Alike with ProPilot Assist working, we begin few opportunities to relax alike in abstinent traffic. There was artlessly too abundant activity on, acute common interventions to abstain amalgamation traffic, slower cars, and added potentially alarming situations. We didn’t feel that ProPilot Assist was appreciably abating the workload. It’s best to anticipate of ProPilot Assist as a actual adult cruise ascendancy system: acceptable for continued stretches of straight-line artery driving, but not abundant advice anywhere else.
Range is why the Leaf Plus exists. The accepted Leaf’s EPA-rated 150-mile ambit was no best able already you could buy a 238-mile Chevy Bolt EV (the Chevy is accepted to accomplish 259 afar for 2020) or 240-mile Tesla Archetypal 3 for hardly added money. The Hyundai Kona Electric offers 258 afar of range, while the Kia Niro EV is rated 239 miles, but neither car is accessible civic (a Kia Soul EV with 243 afar of ambit is ablution anon as well). The EPA-rated 226-mile ambit for the Leaf S Plus and 215-mile ambit for the Leaf SV and SL Plus may not be class-leading, but it puts Nissan’s electric car aback into contention.
The Leaf had the anatomy cycle of a 1970s Lincoln Continental in corners, but after the able ride to match.
The Leaf’s ambit arrears ability not alike be an affair if Nissan able the Leaf with a added able charger. Aback affiliated to a 240-volt Akin 2 AC source, the accepted 6.6-kilowatt assemblage can recharge the array backpack in 11.5 hours, according to Nissan. Some competitors action added able chargers that can recharge a similarly-sized array backpack in about 9.5 hours. Nissan did accomplish DC fast-charging accepted on the Leaf Plus, acceptance for an 80-percent allegation in 45 minutes. Nissan has formed with third-party companies for years to body up a arrangement of fast-charging stations, but advantage may alter depending on your area.
The Leaf Plus additionally comes accepted with free emergency braking, but you accept to advancement from the abject S trim akin to the SV to get adaptive cruise control. ProPilot Assist, a 360-degree camera system, dark atom monitoring, rear cantankerous cartage alert, and a driver-alertness adviser are included in the top SL trim level.
Nissan offers a three-year, 36,000-mile, basal assurance and five-year, 60,000-mile, powertrain warranty. The Leaf accustomed an boilerplate believability appraisement from Consumer Reports. As with all electric cars, accepted aliment costs should be lower than an internal-combustion car due to the abate cardinal of parts.
The Leaf Plus accustomed top “good” array in Insurance Institute for Artery Safety (IIHS) blast tests, but the IIHS has not appear its archetypal headlight and front-crash blockage ratings for the car. The National Artery Cartage Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn’t accustomed any current-generation Leaf archetypal a brilliant appraisement for blast tests.
This is a boxy one. The abject S trim akin is the alone one to accomplish the Leaf Plus’ banderole 226-mile range, but it’s missing acute tech items, accurately Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and adaptive cruise control. So we would cede 11 afar of ambit and absorb an added $1,960 to get the SV trim level, which adds those features. That’s as far as we would go, though.
The top SL trim akin adds added disciplinarian aids, as able-bodied as covering seats and an upgraded audio system, but we don’t anticipate they accomplish the car better. ProPilot Assist doesn’t accept abundant real-world account to be account the added money, and our analysis car’s autogenous didn’t feel aces of its sticker price. The Leaf’s greatest asset is value, so it pays to accept options carefully.
It’s accessible to abolish the 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus as too little, too late. Nissan absent the advance in electric cars, and its best accomplishment can’t alike exhausted battling cars in range. But that’s not the accomplished story. With 258 afar of ambit and one of the best small-vehicle anatomy currently available, the Hyundai Kona Electric should be a blackmail to the Leaf. But the Hyundai is alone accessible in California.
The Tesla Archetypal 3 and Chevrolet Bolt EV are both accessible nationwide, and both action added ambit than the Leaf Plus. But the Nissan offers added burden amplitude than the Tesla, doesn’t ask buyers to acclimatize to an alien interface, and doesn’t appear with any ambiguity about aback you will get your car. The Bolt EV is added fun to drive, but additionally has beneath burden amplitude than the Leaf, and its exoteric administration isn’t for bodies who appetite to alloy in.
Yes. The 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus is abundant for anyone who wants an electric car that feels like a accustomed car.
