Nissan LEAF Pricing and Specs

2022 price from

The Nissan LEAF is available from $49,990 to $60,490 for the 2022 Hatchback across a range of models.

Pioneering the electric vehicle (EV) movement with its first-generation Leaf in 2010, Nissan launched the refreshed emissions-free small car in Australia in mid-2019.

Available initially with a single variant, current prices range from $49,990 for the LEAF (base) to $60,490 for the LEAF E+.

For the money, buyers get a 110kW/320Nm all-electric powertrain that can accelerate the 1.6-ton small car from zero to 100km/h in 7.9 seconds.

Fitted with a 40kWh lithium-ion battery, the Leaf will travel about 270km before need a recharge.

Plugged into a household socket, the Leaf will take around 24 hours to recharged fully, with times dropping to 7.5 hours with a 7kW AC wallbox.

Standard equipment includes 17-inch wheels, automatic wipers and headlights, 7.0-inch driver display, heated front and rear seats, heated steering wheel, keyless entry and start, and an 8.0-inch multimedia system with satellite navigation and digital radio.

The second-generation Leaf is also bolstered by autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring and adaptive cruise control.

Nissan LEAF FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan LEAF here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What are the best economical small used cars?

    It’s a fact of life, Ted, that fuel-efficiency has been a big focus for car-makers in the last decade. So, the most economical models tend to be the newer ones which tap into better technology (such as stop-start functions) and improved engine and driveline designs.

    But beyond the improvements in petrol-engine technology, diesel engines have brought some big improvements, as have hybrid vehicles. The real headline makers have been, of course, the plug-in electric vehicles which are now available second-hand for sensible money. I’ve seen Nissan Leafs for sale for less than $20,000 and the plug-in hybrid Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV for similar money.

    If economy is your number-one aim, stay away from all-wheel-drive cars as the extra driveline friction requires more power and, therefore, fuel to drive it. And don’t forget that how you drive, where you drive and even whether you check you tyre pressure regularly can also have a huge effect on your ultimate fuel economy.
