2013 Nissan Leaf to feature leather, upgraded heater and faster charger

The Leaf’s updated heater reportedly adds an extra 20-25 miles of range during cold weather conditions.

Consumers will find several fresh bells and whistles when the all-new 2013 Nissan Leaf hits dealerships this December. The Detroit News reports that the upcoming Leaf fill feature leather seats, a darker interior and a more efficient heater. Notwithstanding the soon-to-be released Leaf, Nissan is already enjoying notable sales figures for 2012. Mark Perry, Nissan North America’s director of product planning and strategy, said that 2012 sales have put Nissan well ahead of last year’s pace. In fact, the Japanese automaker is on pace to double 2011 sales. What’s even more significant is that the Leaf only recently became available in all 50 states.

As for the new features on the 2013 Nissan Leaf, Nissan revealed that such ideas have been permeating since the Leaf was first designed five years ago. Although leather was considered on the initial Leaf model, Nissan was unsure as to whether customers wanted such an option.

“We were like, ‘Ah, let’s do the clean, green recycled materials,'” Perry said. Turns out, consumers desired leather over recycled materials and Nissan took notice. Aside from leather, Leaf buyers also requested a darker interior. “People want a dark interior, so we’re to give them a dark interior, too,” added Perry
