Safety - Crash Tests

Nissan Leaf Pros and Cons

  • profile photo of user ElectroDad ElectroDad

    Nissan Leaf - One year and 31,000 km driving an electric car 9.1

    owner review of Nissan Leaf 30 kWh Tekna 2017

    • this is my first electric car and I find driving it every day surprisingly fun even after a full year

    • it has a heat pump that reduces power consumption in cold weather

    • in the winter, Leaf is able to heat sufficiently after just 30 seconds

    • 5 stars, the highest rating in the EuroNCAP crash test

    • after many years of production, “fine-tuned” and reliable drive

    • quiet operation

    • mobile phone application (consumption statistics, option of remote heating and air conditioning, battery status, option to start charging, etc.)

    • Nissan offers a free tow four times a year to a charger if you run out of power

    • battery warranty of eight years/160,000 km

    • very inexpensive regular service (service interval = 30,000 km or 1 year)

    • it has a timer to start charging once the el. rate is cheaper

    • low long-term consumption average of 14.93 kWh after 30,000 km

    • thanks to 80% regenerative braking, the brakes will hold out roughly 3 times longer than those in internal combustion cars

    • solid handling and comfortable suspension thanks in part to the large 270 cm wheelbase

    • decent dynamics in the city and beyond, despite power of “only” 80 kW (110 hp)/254 Nm

    • the charging connector is on the front bumper - ideal location

    • the car feels solid, nothing creaks when driving on uneven road surfaces

    • spacious glovebox

    • the BOSE sound system plays well

    • in infotainment, it is not possible to restrict charging e.g., at 80%

    • by today’s standards, it has a smaller battery capacity of 30 kWh/27 kWh usable

    • relatively wide A (windscreen) pillar

    • buttons on the steering wheel are not placed ergonomically, I cannot get used to them

    • the battery has no active temperature control (presents an issue over long trips with rapid charge)

    • higher weight - 1,570 kg

    • the steering wheel can be adjusted only in one direction (up or down)

    • inconveniently shaped trunk, where space is taken up also by the Bose subwoofer (though it is large enough)

    • somewhat odd-looking exterior design, like an ugly duckling
