2023 Nissan LEAF in Memphis, TN

Buyers in the Memphis area are looking to leave a smaller carbon footprint, and one vehicle they're looking for is the Nissan LEAF. Here at Jim Keras Nissan, we have a sizable inventory of Nissan LEAF models to browse, and the new 2023 LEAF definitely warrants a closer look. For those who don't want to spend an arm and a leg on a Tesla, the Nissan LEAF is ideal; it bundles a lot of handy features into a neat little package that the average shopper can justify.

Trim Levels

The 2023 Nissan LEAF line-up appears trimmed down from five trim levels to just two: the S and the SV Plus. The S receives its power from a 40-kWh battery pack that gives the vehicle an EPA-estimated 149 miles of electric range. However, the SV Plus comes equipped with a more powerful 62-kWh battery; it increases the electric range to 215 miles. Also, the SV Plus includes a stronger 214-horsepower electric motor, which seriously outperforms the S's 147-horsepower motor.

Performance

Drivers near Bartlett, TN will find that they can easily speed up and merge onto the highway in the Nissan LEAF. It only takes the LEAF about 7.8 seconds to sprint from 0 to 60 miles per hour, a respectable time for an EV. The SV Plus shaves that time down to an even seven seconds. Routine braking procedures feel effortless thanks to e-Pedal mode, which you engage simply by lifting your foot off the gas. Having e-Pedal mode makes driving the LEAF exciting, and the smooth power delivery helps with the vehicle's easy mannerisms.

Design Elements

Nissan designed the new LEAF for practicality and comfort, but its exterior has a sporty edge. The sloping hood and badging placed smack-dab in the middle of a black front grille lets you know that this is indeed an electric vehicle with some spunk behind its design. The S trim rides around on 16-inch steel wheels with wheel covers, but the SV Plus upgrades it to 17-inch alloy wheels. Also, the S's automatic headlights become LEDs on the SV Plus. The charge port is lockable and illuminated, and the SV Plus gains fog lights for even better visibility.

Inside, the LEAF S starts you off with automatic climate control, 60/40-split folding rear seats, and a driver's seat that is height-adjustable. On the SV Plus, the front seats have a heating function, and the driver's seat is power-adjustable eight ways. On top of that, the steering wheel appears wrapped in leather and can heat for chilly mornings around Cordova.

Tech Specs

Nissan doesn't skimp on the technology it puts on the LEAF. Both trim levels have two USB ports up front and two charge-only ports in the rear. There is also an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, a four-speaker sound system, and smartphone app integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SV Plus adds an integrated navigation system, a six-speaker sound system, and NissanConnect Services that remotely checks the battery's status, HVAC system, and charging through the app.

Safety Features

Driver amenities are abundant on both trim levels. The LEAF S starts you off with automatic emergency braking, rear automatic braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot intervention. However, upgrading to the SV Plus tacks on a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control, a driver attention warning, and ProPilot Assist, which utilizes lane centering and adaptive cruise control to create a semi-automated driving system.

There is no doubt that the 2023 Nissan LEAF packs a punch with its quick charging capabilities and powerful upgraded motor.
