Tried, tested and trusted, the 2014 Nissan LEAF SL is the top "Roomy Electric" vehicle pick in the Good Housekeeping November buyer’s guide as selected by the experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI). The world’s best-selling electric vehicle is one of eight cars selected in their annual 2014 car review. LEAF was specifically noted for its "impressive" cruising range, value enhanced by available federal and state tax incentives and segment-exclusive Around View Monitor, great for parking or backing out.
With more than 142,000 LEAF sales globally since launch and more than 64,000 in the U.S., Nissan is the global leader in electric vehicles. LEAF seats up to five passengers and boasts an EPA-estimated* driving range of 84 miles on a fully-charged battery and MPGe ratings of 126 city, 101 highway and 114 combined.
The starting price of a Nissan LEAF is about $22,000** after the available maximum $7,500 federal tax credit, while providing the benefits of lower running costs and less scheduled maintenance. LEAF is powered by an advanced lithium-ion battery and an 80kW motor that provides a highly responsive, fun-to-drive experience. The all-electric Nissan LEAF is offered in three trim levels, and shoppers can choose from a variety of available premium features such as leather seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, 7-speaker BOSE® energy efficient audio system and an available 6.6kW onboard charger that significantly reduces charging times on a 240V charging dock.
