Description: Used 2015 Nissan Leaf S for sale - $11,499, 44,566 miles with Rear View Camera, Front Seat Heaters, Cruise Control, Auxiliary Audio Input, Rear Spoiler, Overhead Airbags
Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) Quiet, smooth, reliable ride. Smooth is a huge issue in Houston where the roads are anything but smooth. I charge the car at night and it has a full 84 miles when I leave. Running a/c or heat will decrease the mileage as will high speeds but I live only 10 miles from work and everywhere I go is within 10 -15 miles from home so its great for me. I don't really like having to watch the miles if I have a lot of errands but I have never gotten really low even on my busiest day. I haven't noticed any change in my electric bill so I am pretty happy overall.

Plenty of power, handles like an expensive sports car, most expensive maintenance cost is a tire rotation, instruments well thought out and easy to read, comfortable- all this and it costs pennies per gallon of gas equivalent.

About The Nissan Leaf

Vehicle Summary

The Nissan Leaf is a compact, five-door electric car with a hatchback design. Its first generation was introduced in the United States in 2010, though it received a major overhaul for the 2018 model year. The Nissan Leaf has set itself apart from traditional hybrids by running 100% on electricity. This plug-in electric car (with a range of up to 226 miles in its most recent model year) is a great option for green-conscious individuals who don’t want to sacrifice their driving experience. Meanwhile, its compact size makes it ideal for maneuvering around tight corners and in crowded city streets.

The Nissan Leaf is currently in its second generation (model years 2018-present) of production, and there have been some notable changes between the first and second generations. For example, the new generation of Nissan Leaf features an innovative e-Pedal mode, which offers regenerative braking without the need to depress the brake pedal.

Nissan Leaf Trim Configurations

The most recent generation of the Nissan Leaf (2018 and 2019 model years) is available in three trim options. All three trims in the 2019 model year are also available in a "Plus" configuration, which includes a more powerful 62 kWh battery. There are a few other key features that set each trim level in the 2018-2019 Nissan Leaf apart.

Nissan Leaf S

• five-inch central display

• 16-inch wheels

• standard charging

Nissan Leaf SV

• seven-inch touchscreen display

• 17-inch wheels

• included Charge package (allows for connecting to 120- and 240-volt wall outlets)

• smartphone integration

Nissan Leaf SL

• Bose seven-speaker sound system

• leather upholstery

• heated seats, steering wheel, and side mirrors

It is also worth noting that each trim level on the Nissan Leaf has optional package add-ons. For example, the base S trim has an optional Charge package that allows the vehicle to be plugged into traditional wall outlets for easier charging. The SV and SL both have an available Technology package that includes such features as blind-spot monitoring, lane departure, and adaptive cruise control.

CarMax Rankings


Does the Nissan Leaf take gas?

No, the Nissan Leaf does not have a gas engine. Unlike traditional hybrids that use a gas engine in conjunction with a battery, the Nissan Leaf is run 100% on electricity through its innovative lithium ion battery.

How much does it cost to replace the battery in a Nissan Leaf?

The cost to replace the battery in a Nissan Leaf can vary depending on your specific model year. According to Clean Technica, you can generally expect to spend around $5,500 on a new Nissan Leaf battery, which includes installation. For older models of the Nissan Leaf, an additional adapter kit is required to retrofit a new battery. This may require an additional cost as well.  

What kind of plug does the Nissan Leaf use?

Nissan offers three battery-charging options for the Nissan Leaf. A Level 1 charging station consists of a standard 120-volt wall plug and is ideal for overnight use and driving short ranges. A Level 2 plug consists of a 240-volt outlet, which some homes are equipped with, but others may require retrofitting. DC Fast Charger stations are also available in different locations across the country and are designed to completely charge the Leaf's battery in significantly less time than Level 1 and Level 2 chargers. 

How many miles can I go on a full charge in the Nissan Leaf?

The range of a Nissan Leaf will depend on whether the vehicle has a 62 kWh battery or a 40 kWh battery. For example, a 2019 Leaf with a 62 kWh battery can travel up to an estimated 226 miles on a single battery charge.1 With the standard 40 kWh battery, the 2019 Leaf still has a range of up to 150 miles.1

How many years with a Nissan Leaf Battery last on average?

Reviews for Nissan Leaf

Overall Rating

4.3 out of 5(82 reviews)

Great car....if you understand it

Range can be a bit of an issue, but once you get use to it, the Leaf can be a lot of things. Interior space is bigger than the outside would suggest. It handles grocery runs and trips to soccer games. And, if you're so inclined, the electric torque and relatively flat cornering can make for a surprisingly fun experience.

- Tommy Hernandez, 2011 Nissan Leaf

2011 Nissan Leaf - All Electric car

Don't need to buy gasoline, super quiet, very comfortable drive, almost no maintenance. Fantastic for driving around the city, as long as you don't need to drive more than 85 miles per day. Need to buy a used Leaf as the prices are great, about 1/3 price of new one. Extremely happy with my purchase

- David Southworth, 2011 Nissan Leaf

Great car for the money

If you drive less then 60 miles a day it's the perfect economy car. Cost of owning a Nissan Leaf is just the payments and insurance. I drive about 20 miles a day cost of electric is about 00.60 cents a day. No Smog, no oil changes, NO GAS Quite, Fast if you need it, Handles great and fun, comfort is good for a small car At first you will worry about how many miles you have left to drive even when it says you have 45 miles left, but you have only 5 miles to drive. and you will charge every time you get out of the car, Now I only charge twice a week
