Nissan LEAF burns zero gas. That means it also produces zero tailpipe emissions and no engine noise.

    Nissan LEAF unleashes the full power of its 100% electric drivetrain every time you hit the accelerator.

    Going electric comes with surprisingly great cost-of-ownership benefits, like lower maintenance costs.

Nissan LEAF® Performance

Feel the electric rush

There’s nothing quite like 100% electric driving. There’s no power band – just straight power for a rush of instant acceleration every time you hit the pedal. It all comes without so much as a drop of gas, and zero tailpipe emissions. Add to that plenty of advanced technology, and you have an EV that's simple and enjoyable to operate.

Handles like a dream

The Nissan LEAF is just as much fun through the twists and turns. The floor-mounted battery pack creates a low centre of gravity for a great ride and smooth handling, helping you corner with minimal body roll.

One pedal, lots of fun

You can drive your Nissan LEAF using a single pedal. Just press down for an instant rush and ease off to brake. It's one smooth, direct motion for accelerating and slowing down. You can even hold your vehicle on a hill without touching the brake. And of course, your brake pedal is still there so you can reach it when you need to. [[16]]

How the Nissan LEAF® works

The Nissan LEAF is an all-electric vehicle. Its motor doesn’t require gas at all, and it's not a hybrid either. Instead, the motor is powered by a large lithium-ion battery mounted along the floor of the car. Charging it is as simple as charging your phone: plug it in and let it go.

Nissan LEAF® Benefits

For one, you’ll never have to fuel up again, so cruise past the pump and stop worrying about the price of gas.
