What's New For The 2019 Nissan LEAF

Being the best selling electric car in the world is a lot of pressure, but the 2019 LEAF proves why it is deserving of the title. Taking the potential of an electric vehicle further, the LEAF has a newly designed battery that gives the driver both more power and range. With 40% more range than previous LEAF models, drivers can go quite a distance before ever worrying about charging their car. Despite having an electric motor, the LEAF is a very responsive vehicle that offers drivers a respectable amount of power in 2019.

Available Trim Levels & Key Amenities

Nissan has given drivers 3 different trim options in 2019. You can choose between the S, SV, and SL. There is a lot to love at every trim level, including the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. These systems work great with the available 7" color touchscreen.

Many options are available to drivers to make this comfortable car feel even more luxurious. The available heated steering wheel and heated seat options are great for those chilly mornings. Whether it is hot or cold, the automatic climate control can help keep you and your passengers riding in the ideal temperature.

One of the most exciting features that the 2019 LEAF offers is NissanConnect EV with Services. Linking this app to your smartphone or smartwatch can give you a ton of information, even when you are not in your car. You can preset the temperature in your car, check your battery charge, and find out exactly how far you can go before your next charge using this app.

Long Range Efficiency

2019 Nissan LEAFThere is only one motor version available in the 2019 LEAF. It is a 110 kW AC synchronous electric motor. Those who worry that electric cars are "gutless" might be relieved to know that this motor generates a whopping 147 horsepower. The amount of torque is impressive as well, coming in at 236 lb-ft.

Working alongside the electric motor is a 40 kWh Lithium-Ion battery. There is also a 6.6 kW onboard charger. On a full charge, drivers can go 150 miles. There is both an Eco and B mode, both designed to help extend the range by using regenerative braking. When you are in a hurry, know that Nissan includes a DC Quick Charge, which provides you with 90 miles of range after just 30 minutes of charging.

Impressive Safety Ratings and Features

2019 Nissan LEAFThere are many excellent standard safety features for drivers on the 2019 LEAF. Families will enjoy the LATCH car system attaching system as well as the tire pressure monitor. The braking system is top of the line. In addition to having anti-lock brakes, this vehicle also has Electronic brake-force distribution, which is a sensor to detect when there is extra weight in the back and adjusts rear braking power accordingly.

Airbags are essential to the safety of a vehicle. The 2019 LEAF features six of them that have been strategically placed to keep you and your family safe. In the event of a rollover collision, there is a sensor that tells the car to deploy the roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental airbags.

Depending on the trim level, drivers will have the option of many other available safety features, such as Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Monitoring, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, and Intelligent Lane Intervention.
