The Nissan LEAF® is 100% electric. That means no gas. None. So forget about the cost of a gallon, and say hello to freedom from the pump. Because the only time you’ll be going to the gas station is whenever you need to put air in your tires.

Not 50%. Not 99%.
100% Electric.

No gas, ever.
The 100% electric Nissan LEAF® motor is powered exclusively by an advanced lithium-ion battery that you can charge at home, or on-the-go. Meanwhile, hybrids have to carry around their electric drivetrains plus their gas engines.

Zero. nothing.
not a puff.

Zero emissions
Most cars—even hybrids—release tons of CO2 tailpipe emissions every year. The Nissan LEAF® doesn’t use a single drop of gas. And no gas means no tailpipe, no fumes, and zero emissions.

Do you hear that? No? Good. Because you shouldn’t. Electric motors don’t make noise like internal combustion engines. They just perform like them. They don’t use traditional transmissions with numerous gears and ratios, either. It’s just stop or go. And in the Nissan LEAF®, go means go.

The New Torque


Performance you wouldn’t get from a V8
You've never driven anything like the Nissan LEAF®, and you've probably never felt anything like its instant torque. The power is there when you touch the pedal. There is no lag, no revving-up or shifting gears—it just goes.

The Sound of the Future


Incredibly quiet driving
Say goodbye to the vibration and engine noise of every other car you've ever driven. The advanced 80kW AC synchronous electric motor provides the quietest, smoothest ride you've ever experienced.
