2019 Nissan Leaf Performance

Nissan went on a redesign spree of its top-of-the-line 2018 Nissan Leaf car last year and the result – the 2019 Nissan Leaf. This new variant in a hugely successful line of electric hatchbacks is more than meets the eye.

Battery & motor
The 2019 Nissan Leaf, also known as the Leaf Plus, comes with an upgraded 160 kW electric motor and a 62 kWh lithium-ion battery and runs on 214 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. Although unofficial, many seasoned drivers have confirmed that the car goes from 0 to 97 mph in 9.9 seconds. The Leaf SL Plus has also been observed reaching 60mph in 6 seconds. The 2019 Nissan Leaf is quite energy efficient and can drive between 215 miles and 226 miles on a single charge. The car was found to have one of the smallest life-cycle environmental footprints in the United States, making it a very green car. Another benefit of the 2019 Nissan Leaf is its lack of sound. The motor is quiet and very gentle, making the drive immensely enjoyable.

Driving comfort
The 2019 Nissan Leaf is perfect for drivers who want to take it slow, steady and quiet And by slow we mean slower than sports models. The car can zoom up to 50mph in a handful of seconds and can keep at this speed for extended periods of time without losing much charge. Yes, elevated terrains are a tad challenging for these cars and the battery does drain a bit on elevation. But as long as you’re not accelerating and braking too haphazardly, you will be able to conserve the battery.

The e-pedal feature in this car gives you the benefit of regenerative braking, which allows you to conserve energy and recharge the car while on the drive. The car comes with a suite of on-road control features called the ProPilot bundle, which include features like driver assist, traffic assist, lane-keeping, blind-spot monitoring, and more. This makes the car very safe and comfortable to drive. If you’re impressed by the Nissan Leaf and wish to schedule a test drive, contact us at Deacon Jones Nissan.
