Frequently Asked Questions

How powerful is it? How fast does it accelerate?

The Nissan Leaf 40 kWh is equipped with a powertrain that delivers up to 110 kW (148 hp) of power and 236 lb-ft of torque.

This enables a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 7.7 seconds (ranked №459 out of 683 electric vehicles) and a top speed of 89 mph.

How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range?

Nissan Leaf 40 kWh achieves a How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range? of 140–171 miles, placing it at №575 among 683 electric vehicles. However, this range is subject to several influences:

  • Speed: Traveling at higher speeds reduces battery life.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold or hot weather can affect range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous landscapes decrease range.
  • Driving habits: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Feature usage: Climate control and media systems also influence range.

It's important to acknowledge that these are estimations, and your actual driving range may differ. Consider these factors when planning your trip and be ready for potential charging stops.

Utilize the interactive EV Navigation map for trip planning assistance.

What charging options are available? How long does it take to charge it?
