The all-electric 2015 Nissan Leaf continues to be one of the few electric cars with a real, useable electric range that won't leave you stranded after one commute to work. Shoppers who want to see what the future looks like should come test drive the new Nissan Leaf at Wallace Nissan in Stuart, FL, serving all of Jupiter, White City, Palm City, and Port St. Lucie.
The Nissan Leaf has the best range of any entry-level all-electric car, the Tesla Model S can go further, but costs more than $40K more. An 80kw (107hp and 187 lb-ft of torque) electric motor connects directly to the front wheels and gives you about 84 miles of range from the lithium-ion 24 kilowatt-hour battery pack. A 6.6kw onboard charger is standard on most Leaf models and can fully charge the battery in four hours from a 240-volt outlet. The optional Quick Charge Port can provide an 80% charge in just 30 minutes from a dedicated outlet. The Leaf can even go from 0-60 mph in less than 10 seconds because its electric motor generates lots of torque when you press the accelerator for quick off-the-line launches.
