It has a 40kWh battery, an improved 110kW of power, up 38 per cent versus the outgoing model, and 320Nm of torque, an increase of 14 per cent over the first generation, adding a degree of exhilaration for the driver thanks to the instant acceleration.
The new model has a driving range of 315km1 (NEDC ADR 81/02 combined cycle) and 270km indicative driving range (European WLTP combined cycle) making it perfect for city-based Australians, who on average travel 38 km/day².
While you can fully charge LEAF within 24 hours, the time drops to 7.5 hours if the household has the latest 7kw home charger³. You can also plug your LEAF into a CHAdeMO rapid charger and get from 20 per cent to 80 per cent charge in around 60 minutes depending on charging conditions⁴.
The new Nissan LEAF also has world-first bi-directional charging capabilities. This technology, which Nissan is working with its partners to realise in Australia, allows owners to use the charge from their car to power their home or business, or return electricity to the grid.
Combining these with a contemporary exterior and interior design, an 8-inch touchscreen display, 7-inch Advanced Drive Assist Display, satellite navigation, heated steering wheel, leather accented seats and ample space for five, the new Nissan LEAF offers a comfortable, quiet drive that will be enjoyed by everyone.
Nissan LEAF also adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™, plus e-Pedal – which allows drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate, stop and hold the car by using the accelerator pedal alone without needing to use the brakes. It also features an Auto-Hold function.
New Nissan LEAF is available in six contemporary colours including Arctic White, Ivory Pearl with black roof, Magnetic Red, Pearl Black, Platinum and Gun Metallic.
New Nissan LEAF will be sold in 89 Nissan dealers nationwide making Nissan the largest electric vehicle network in Australia. Also, a partnership with JET Charge will assist customers with all of their home charging infrastructure needs.

Indicated rapid charging time requires use of a CHAdeMO rapid charger. The Nissan LEAF is designed to support the majority of journeys in daily life and is equipped with charging safeguards to protect the battery during repeated rapid charging sessions in a short period of time. The time taken for successive rapid charging can take longer if the battery temperature activates the battery safeguarding technology.
