Comments

The Nissan LEAF e+ is a pure electric vehicle and no pollutants are emitted at the tailpipe. Accordingly, the car scores the maximum index of 10 in this part of the assessment.

Comments

In one of Green NCAP's four tests rating the vehicle's efficiency behaviour, the Nissan LEAF e+ exceeded Green NCAP's lower threshold and scored less than the maximum possible. This test is the WLTC conducted at an ambient temperature of -7°C. However, the energy efficiency index of 9.9 is still close to the maximum score due to the generally low consumption of the battery electric powertrain. The average driving range resulting from Green NCAP tests is 306 km without considering the -7°C ambient temperature test, which represents the worst-case driving range with 210 km.

Comments

Because no gases are emitted at the tailpipe of an all-electric vehicle, the LEAF e+ scores maximum points in the Greenhouse Gas Index.

Our verdict

The latest generation Nissan LEAF e+ has a bigger battery and higher power than its predecessor. With 62 kWh of declared battery capacity and a power of 160 kW compared to the previous generation's 40 kWh and 110 kW, the latest car makes a great improvement in terms of the energy efficiency. Like the previous version, the new LEAF e+ is also equipped with the e-pedal which allows the driver to control vehicle acceleration and deceleration through a single pedal and helps maximize the car's efficiency by reducing reliance on the traditional braking system. For now, Green NCAP assesses vehicles based only on what is emitted at the tailpipe so the Nissan LEAF e+ easily gets the maximum points in two of the three areas of the assessment - Clean Air and Greenhouse Gases - as local emissions of these are zero. Since this is a pure battery electric powertrain, energy efficiency is also very high and the car easily achieves the maximum 5 stars.
