Since 2010, the Nissan LEAF has been making a name for itself in the competitive world of electric cars. The Japanese automaker made some big changes for the 2014 model, including an increased electric range of 84 miles. Big updates were also made to the interior, which may surprise people expecting the bare bones cabin typically found in an economy car. Consider a pre-owned Nissan LEAF for your first electric car.
Have a seat in the LEAF and the first thing you’ll notice is the modern center stack, which is home to a large 7-inch screen. The user-friendly infotainment system includes navigation, entertainment options, and smartphone pairing for making hands-free calls. A cutting-edge split-level instrument panel display allows you to stay in the know about your car’s inner workings.
Edmunds explains that since the LEAF was built as an electric car from the get-go, Nissan designers conveniently placed the battery pack beneath the floor of the cabin, which makes for a reasonably spacious interior. Head and legroom is top-notch and will keep extra tall drivers happy.
The LEAF doesn’t shy away from epic shopping adventures or warehouse spending sprees. Behind the back row, there’s a surprising 24 cubic-feet of cargo room, which expands to 30 cubic feet when the seats are folded down.
