When it comes to hybrids and EVs, there’s a lot of untapped potential. Luckily, more and more auto makers are exploring those options. Nissan is one of them, refining its Leaf model over the past decade.
Today we’ll be looking at the difference between the 2020 Nissan Leaf and the 2020 Nissan Leaf Plus, two different variants of the same vehicle. We dive into different performance specs, single charge ranges, standard features, and more. Take a look.
The 2020 Nissan Leaf is a plug-in hybrid. It has a single electric motor and 40 kWh battery to assist its four-cylinder engine. They combine to make 147 horsepower. The base model Leaf can do 149 miles all electric from a full charge. The 2020 Leaf gets 111 MPGe. Standard features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an 8-inch touchscreen, and Nissan Safety Shield 360. That safety suite includes things like forward collision warning, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure alert. It is available in two trims: S and SV.
The 2020 Nissan Leaf Plus has two big differences: a bigger battery and an extra trim. The Leaf Plus has a 62 kWh battery. It generates more power, coming out to 214-combined horsepower. It also has a longer range, topping out at 226 miles on a single charge. It is rated at 108 MPGe. The Leaf Plus has three trims: S, SV, and SL. The first two are exactly the same as the two base Leaf trims. The SL adds things like leather upholstery, a seven-speaker Bose audio system, ProPilot Assist, a surround-view parking camera system, and more.
