How the Nissan LEAF® works

The Nissan LEAF is an all-electric vehicle. Its motor doesn’t require gas at all, and it's not a hybrid either. Instead, the motor is powered by a large lithium-ion battery mounted along the floor of the car. Charging it is as simple as charging your phone: plug it in and let it go.

Nissan LEAF® Benefits

Going electric adds up

Owning a Nissan LEAF keeps getting better. Beyond lower cost of ownership, there are plenty of benefits to going electric. For one, you’ll never have to fuel up again, so cruise past the pump and stop worrying about the price of gas. And depending on where you live, you may qualify for tax incentives, HOV lane access and more.

No gas, no tailpipe emissions

No gas means no tailpipe. No tailpipe means no tailpipe emissions. Just like gas stations, you can put emissions testing behind you. In the 100% electric Nissan LEAF, they’re truly a thing of the past.

No oil changes

Nissan LEAF isn’t powered by an internal combustion engine. That means there’s no oil needed for lubrication, and no oil changes required to keep it running smoothly. Ever.

Spark plugs, timing belts, fluid top-ups – forget about them. Nissan LEAF is 100% electric, so get used to less maintenance, and less hassle.
