2022 Nissan Leaf

The current, second generation of Nissan's electric model Leaf is nearing the end of its intended life cycle, and until the replacement arrives (apparently in the form of an electric crossover), the Japanese manufacturer has slightly improved this hatchback for the European market.

The current Leaf was introduced in 2017 and then received certain technological updates three years later. As for this latest tweak for the 2022 model year, the new 16-inch and 17-inch alloy wheels with black accents, the updated Nissan emblem on the grille, tailgate and wheels, as well as a wider color palette (including Universal Blue and Magnetic Blue) stand out. colors).

The interior hasn’t changed so Leaf retains the same 9.0-inch touchscreen, NissanConnect infotainment that supports Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa, and there’s still Nissan’s ProPILOT system.

The standard 2022 Leaf has lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 40 kWh, while the Leaf e + uses a larger battery of 62 kWh that offers up to 385 km range (according to WLTP).

The electric motor develops 110 kW / 150 hp in the standard Leaf and 160 kW / 218 hp in the Leaf e +.

Nissan has not yet announced prices for the slightly tweaked 2022 Leaf, but it is expected to do so closer to the official launch.
