One of the lessons learned from Nissan's first leaf generation is that an electric car does not necessarily have to be different. What is different now though is a 40kWh battery which brings the Leaf to 240km range - enough for everyday use. This corresponds to a real consumption of 16.3 kWh / 100 km. The electric motor now delivers 110kW, accelerates in 8.8 seconds from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour and with 320Nm of torque, has enough grunt to get up and go.
