Overview2016 NISSAN LEAF
The 2016 Nissan Leaf is a compact electric vehicle. The four-door hatchback Nissan Leaf was chosen as one of Edmunds' Best Used Cars, Trucks, and SUVs for 2016. Electric car shoppers can expect a long cruising range of about 100 miles a day with the Leaf. The 2016 Nissan Leaf is an affordable electric car for local commutes and short drives around town. Nissan has packed the battery-operated vehicle with a variety of features that make it highly sought-after in the used car market.
Zero EmissionsOne reason the Nissan Leaf is popular with electric car shoppers is because it creates no emissions. The vehicle uses an 80kW electric motor and draws its power from a lithium-ion battery. The Leaf also has no fuel tank system, conventional transmission or muffler. It isn't dependent on any fossil fuels, and you never have a monthly gas bill as a result.
Quiet RideThe absence of a traditional engine creates a very quiet ride for vehicle occupants. Drivers and passengers can expect very little engine noise and only occasional noise from outside the vehicle on local roads. On the highway, there is minimal road noise when compared to traditional vehicles.
More Interior Room Than Other Electric VehiclesThe 2016 Nissan Leaf is different than other electric vehicles on the market because its battery pack is located under the floorboards. By placing the car's battery under the vehicle's seats, a roomy interior is created. Even tall passengers will appreciate the extra headroom and cargo space.
Hard Accelerations Decrease Battery PowerThe Nissan Leaf has a range of 80 to 100 miles per charge. However, if you are prone to hard accelerations, you might not get near the promised range. To avoid decreasing your battery power due to fast accelerations, you can turn on the vehicle's Eco mode.
Small Touch Screen and Look-Alike ButtonsAt first glance, you'll notice the interior of the 2016 Nissan Leaf has a modern look. A small touch screen command center allows you to control most of the vehicle's features with just a simple touch. However, the screen is small, and many of the buttons look similar, which can cause confusion for users.
Nissan Leaf Needs to Be Charged After Every UseThe 2016 Nissan Leaf is all-electric, so it must be charged after every use. This means that even if you only use the Leaf for short trips, you're going to have to charge it before you hit the road again. To get the most out of a Leaf's battery, you'll have to charge it anywhere from six to 10 hours, which means you'll need access to an electrical outlet on a regular basis.
