According to some sources, the 2024 Nissan Leaf may be the last one that Nissan is going to produce because the company doesn’t intend to continue its production. When you combine this factor with the fact that the Leaf has received updates in 2023, it’s quite logical if the 2024 model would be a carryover. Don’t expect major updates or changes because you won’t find such a thing.
The Changes in 2023
Leaf 2023 had got new exterior lights, better and newer front bumper, and also new grille. These updates are ‘fresh’ so they should carry to the 2024 model. When you consider the fact that Nissan may not produce the Leaf anymore, it’s quite logical that Leaf would remain the same with its similar body lines and simple lights. It doesn’t mean that Leaf is ugly or unattractive. The vehicle is attractive, but when compared to the new models that have more appealing appearance, the Leaf is definitely left behind.
The Interior Cabin
It’s the cabin that makes Leaf feel outdated and old. The cabin has a very simple look. The center console shows up a bit out from the dashboard, housing physical buttons for the HVAC and infotainment systems. The hatchback may seem small, but once you get into the cabin, it’s actually pretty roomy.
The standard features include Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, four USB ports, 4 audio speakers, and 8 inch of touchscreen. You can also expect six audio speakers, digital navigation cluster, as well as instrument cluster.
Powertrain and Performance
The 2024 Nissan Leaf would be offered with 2 different powertrains. The first one would be the electric hatchback with one electric motor as a standard. It would be located on the front wheel, generating 147 hp. This powertrain also includes a battery pack of 40 kWh.
The second option would be offered for Leaf SV Plus, which is running on an electric motor (which can generate 214 hp) and a battery pack of 62 kWh. The base Leaf is said to have 149 miles of distance, while the SV Plus should be able to cover 215 miles.
Despite its ‘worn’ outdated feel, the vehicle is packed with new safe drive assist. Some of the standard features include lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, auto emergency braking, pedestrian detection, auto high beam assist, and forward collision warning.
