Nissan Leaf Summary

The first electric car mass-produced by a major manufacturer, the Nissan Leaf is a good option for those seeking a quiet, environmentally conscious ride. Though it's gasoline-free, that doesn't mean the Nissan Leaf lacks pace—it has a top speed of 140 km/h. The exterior has changed only subtly since it debuted in 2010, and yet it retains a sleek and modern aerodynamic design. The design is functional too, as aerodynamic features such as slanting LED headlights and wind diffusing side mirrors allow the vehicle to achieve better range.
