What's New For The 2019 Nissan LEAF

The 2019 Nissan LEAF features a higher-range, line-topping model. In 2018, the LEAF went through an entire redesign. The car remains much the same as the redesigned 2018 model.

Nissan LEAF Trims & Features

Lets take a look at the 3 main trims: the S, SV, and SL trims.

S is the base trim. It comes with a 110 KW synchronous electric motor, along with an e-pedal. You have automatic temperature controls, standardized automatic emergency braking, and a rear diffuser.

The SV features all the same neat amenities that come with the S, but it adds aluminum alloy machine-finished wheels. You also get the patented Nissan Navigation System, along with Android Auto and Apple Carplay capabilities. You can use the "NissanConnect" technology, which is powered by SiriusXM radio. This gives you trial access to a 3-year EV and 6 month Premium Plus packages.

The SL is the most expensive and luxurious of the trims. It comes with all the same features in the previous two trims, but it also has a portable charging cable and leather-appointed seats. There's integrated blind spot warning technology and intelligent technology that views all sides of the vehicle. You also have the energy efficient audio system with 7 premium speakers.

Engine and Performance

2019 Nissan LEAFThe Nissan LEAF is an electric car. It's the best-selling electric vehicle on the market, and for good reason. The 147-horsepower engine can get you up to 150 miles on a single charge. You only need to charge the car for 30 minutes to make it 90 miles. Charging is easy, with a charger that plugs into a 240 volt outlet.

The biggest difference between the 2019 LEAF and the previous generations is that the Nissan LEAF has 40 percent more range than its previous generation. The engineers at Nissan have also made an effort to make the charging process easier than ever before, so you can truly look forward to driving.

There are ways to make sure you get the most possible power from each individual charge. If you choose to put the car in Eco Mode, you'll conserve energy by limiting the motor's output. In addition, your regenerative braking will see a slight increase, so you get the highest possible range.

If you want to maximize the range, B Mode is another option. Activating this mode causes your regenerative braking to be even more aggressive, so the battery charges.

It's quick and easy to charge the engine with a public charging station. More and more charging stations are opening every year in the United States. There are also certain states that let electric vehicles use carpool lanes thanks to their low emission status.

Safety First

2019 Nissan LEAFMany different safety testing companies have rated the Nissan LEAF as one of the safest cars on the market. There are front airbags for both the driver and passenger. The driver, passenger, and rear seats also all have a side head airbag.

There are other safety systems in place as well. If you pick the SL trim, you'll get a blind spot warning. You'll also be warned if you're about to hit a pedestrian or cyclist, no matter what trim you drive. The engine gives you speed assistance capabilities, and there's also a lane assistance system that ensures you always stay in the right lane.

The safety systems have remained the same from last year's LEAF. They cover all the necessary basics, so you're ready to drive.
