The Leaf achieves an impressive 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. It utilizes a 110 KW AC synchronous electric motor that now rivals the output of conventional gasoline powered engines, providing plenty of passing power when needed. A 40-kWh lithium-ion battery pack manages an EPA-rated 150 miles per charge, granting more than enough of versatility and confidence for the average commuter. The Leaf uses Nissan's ePedal system, which provides aggressive regenerative braking, allowing for a unique one pedal acceleration and braking experience. Drivers back off the accelerator while cruising until they come to a complete stop, making driving around town a breeze. All Leafs have a 6.6 kW onboard charger that achieves a full charge in about 8 hours. Nissan also offers a fast charging cable that can be plugged into a 120-volt or 240-volt outlet. With a level 3 fast charger, the Leaf can recover 90 miles of range in just 30 minutes. Nissan says that the new battery can retain 90% of its capacity after 500 charge/discharge cycles (approximately 60,000 miles). The company will continue its current warranty, guaranteeing about 70% of original capacity or more for eight years or 100,000 miles. The S, SV and SL trim levels remain the same as previous years.
