2013 Nissan LEAF Review

The all-electric LEAF makes so much sense

The Nissan LEAF is the most popular electric car on the market right now. Some will argue that this type of vehicle is not suited for our rough Canadian winters, especially with a standard range of 160 kilometres that melts like snow under the sun during the cold season. Let’s be real: If you travel 20,000 kilometres annually, your daily average is less than 60 kilometres. The LEAF can easily meet your needs all year long while saving you anywhere between $1,500-$3,000 of gas over a 12-month period.

What is a Nissan LEAF?
Similar to its closest competitor, the Ford Focus Electric, which is another 5-door, 5-passenger compact hatchback with front-wheel drive, the 2013 Nissan LEAF has no engine/generator, making it a fully electric, zero-emissions car — unlike, say, the Chevrolet Volt.

The LEAF boasts a slightly futuristic cabin you should still feel right at home in, and a quiet operation that will leave you speechless.

2013 Nissan LEAF Price and Specs
There are three trim levels to choose from: the S at $31,698, SV at $34,998, and the SL at $38,398. However, 2013 Nissan LEAF buyers and leasers get up to $8,600 in provincial rebates (in Quebec), dropping its actual entry fee to under $24,000. Residents of other provinces will have to check rebate levels at their local Nissan dealer.
