2013 Nissan Leaf: Efficiency Up 15 Percent To 115 MPGe From 99 MPGe

Last month, we learned about thechanges to the 2013 Nissan Leaf, including a new base trim level and various equipment upgrades.

A few days later, Nissan unveiled the base prices for the different 2013 Leaf models,starting at $28,800 for the simplest Leaf S model.

But the car’s EPA-rated efficiency numbers and all-electric range have remained a mystery, until now.

The Nissan Leaf website now shows that the 2013 Leaf electric car is rated at 115 MPGe combined, up from the 99 MPGe rating of the 2011 and 2012 Leaf models.

‘MPGe’ is a rating known as Miles-Per-Gallon-equivalent, meaning the distance an electric car can travel on the same amount of energy as that contained in 1 gallon of gasoline.

The 2013 Leaf is rated at 130 MPGe on the EPA city cycle and 102 MPGe on the highway cycle, for a combined rating of 115 MPGe.

The 2011 and 2012 models, by contrast, were rated at 106 MPGe city, 92 MPGe highway, and 99 MPGe combined.
