Nissan LEAF Electric Vehicle – The Next Generation of Driving!

Nissan’s ‘Leading Environmentally-friendly Affordable Family car’ or Nissan LEAF has been changing the face of green motoring across the entire globe. We have always been super excited about this amazing Nissan electric vehicle and love sharing information, details and news about it with South African enthusiasts.

The compact EV hatch boasts zero emissions, is 100% electric and has already earned itself numerous prestigious awards. The Nissan LEAF car was first introduced to the world at the end of 2010, going on sale in the United States and Japan.

Since then sales have expanded to Ireland, the UK, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Canada, France, Germany, Norway, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland, and elsewhere around the globe. Unfortunately, the Nissan EV is not imported, manufactured or sold in South Africa at this time.

The Nissan LEAF Battery:

  • Battery type: Laminated lithium-ion
  • Voltage: 360 V
  • Capacity: 24 kWh
  • Number of cells: 192

The LEAF’s electric motor isn’t the only efficient feature on this Nissan electric vehicle. It’s also fitted with LED headlights, which use about 50% of the energy of traditional headlights. Its flat underbody creates smooth airflow for the lowest possible drag, while the location of the battery helps to optimise interior comfort and space for up to five occupants.
