New Exterior Design for the 2023 Nissan Leaf

White 2023 Nissan Leafs in action

For the 2023 model year, the Leaf's exterior has been revised and modernized. A new grille, bumper molding and refreshed headlights create a completely new look for the compact electric car.

In addition, the shape of the tire deflectors and rear diffuser have been redesigned to give the car a more aerodynamic profile. The new 17-inch 5-spoke aluminum wheels are uniquely styled.

Finally, the sedan proudly sports the new Nissan logo, which is even illuminated, making the manufacturer's new identity even more obvious.

All these changes come together to create a Nissan Leaf that will turn heads wherever you go.

Two Electric Powertrains for the Nissan Leaf

The base model, the Leaf SV, is powered by a front-mounted electric motor producing 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with a 40 kWh battery, this Nissan Leaf has a range of up to 240 km.

The SV Plus and SL Plus versions of the Nissan Leaf also feature a front-mounted electric motor, but this one produces 214 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. In addition to this greater power, the 60 kWh battery in these versions gives them a range of up to 342 km.

As for charging time, the Nissan Leaf SV needs just 40 minutes at a public fast-charging station to go from 10% to 80%. The other two versions will need 60 minutes. This difference can be explained by the greater capacity of the Nissan Leaf battery.

In fact, the powertrain is a recurring topic in Nissan Leaf reviews. Take the experts at Motortrend, for example, who describe it as follows:

« The Leaf's ride quality is comfortable, and it accelerates briskly when equipped with the larger motor. »

The 2023 Leaf's E-Pedal and New Technologies

Nissan Canada offers a number of embedded technologies in its Nissan Leaf electric vehicle. One of the most talked-about is the e-Pedal function. This function allows you to use the accelerator pedal to accelerate, decelerate and even brake.

When you use e-Pedal, you benefit from two major advantages. Firstly, since you decelerate and brake by cutting off engine power, your brakes are much less worn while driving. Secondly, this feature transfers some energy back to your battery, maximizing your car's range.

The e-Pedal will redefine your driving experience!

This revolution is not the only one the Leaf offers. All Leaf also include the ProPILOT driver assistance system. As one of the most advanced assistants on the market, it can:

  • Allow your car to autonomously maintain the lane
  • Control acceleration to keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead
  • Maintain a constant speed throughout the drive
  • And many more features!

While the Leaf's interior is all about the future, you will, of course, also find classic embedded technologies, such as:

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Compatibility
  • Sirius XM Satellite Radio
  • Around View Monitor
  • Etc.

Nissan offers you all that modern automotive technology has to offer, from the engine to the interior.
