The Nissan Leaf battery life is constantly being improved by Nissan. There was a time when the Nissan Leaf was the most popular battery electric vehicle in California, but that was not the case in 2017. The Bolt EV, Tesla Model S and X, and Fiat 500e all passed by the Nissan Leaf in sales. So, Nissan has to try pretty hard now to regain its popularity in California. Here is where the battery life comes in.
Nissan Leaf Battery Life
The Nissan Leaf battery life has greatly improved for 2018 with its new battery design. Now it goes farther on a charge and it recharges faster than it has previously. Also, the Leaf has a new design and more features that will impress you and tempt you back from your Tesla. Ok, maybe not from the Tesla, but from some other car. Totally.
The 2018 Nissan Leaf now gives us more tech with the ProPILOT Assist driver-assistance technology, the e-Pedal and has more power with a better range. These features can automatically maintain the distance and speed the between you and the car in front of you, keep the car centered in its lane and it’ll help with sudden stops if the car in front of you slams on the brakes. The leaf will start braking automatically. E-Pedal is a braking technology that automatically starts braking when you’ve taken your foot off of the accelerator. On inclines it’ll hold the brake until you accelerate again, which is a very handy feature with the hills of San Francisco.
The new Nissan Leaf battery life for 2018 gives the Leaf owner a driving range of up to 150 miles per charge. The quick charge port allows you to recharge 80% of your battery in only 40 minutes. So, life is looking up for the Leaf in the year to come.
