2014 Nissan Leaf
2014 Nissan Leaf

New for 2014

The 2014 Nissan Leaf adds a standard rearview camera to all grades and an updated EV Information Technology interface with standard voice destination entry and SMS readout.

Vehicle Overview

The 2014 Nissan Leaf is a fully electric four-door hatchback produced by the automaker since the 2011 model year and is sold in S, SV and SL grades.

Summary

The 2014 Leaf is powered by an electric motor producing 107 hp and 187 lb-ft of torque, and has a range of 84 miles, making it ideal for short commutes and city driving. Driving dynamics are lacking in the Leaf, with little steering feel and tires that tires that don’t allow the front wheels to communicate with the driver.
Inside, the 2014 Leaf's gauges are designed to promote efficient driving while tech features such as navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB port come standard. Room for five passengers is ample but comfort remains lacking due to hard cushions that don’t offer adequate thigh support. While the Leaf offers generous space for cargo, fixed partitions containing battery components limit its usability. The 2014 Nissan Leaf has a four-star safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars) and earned a good score in four categories of IIHS testing (good is the highest possible score).

What We Think

The 2014 Nissan Leaf remains a viable commuter car for people looking for an EV that is practical and has a generous range for city driving. Standard tech features including a navigation system make it a good value and allows buyers to justify paying slightly more than a traditional gas-powered car. In a 2010 First Drive, we said that the interior is “light and lively” with the tall seating providing a “commanding view of the road.” Where the Leaf falters is ride and handling because it “goes jiggly over bumps” and the low-rolling-resistance tires inability to track straight during highway cruising.

Nissan Leaf Truck Sparky Rear Three Quarter View
When Nissan engineers at the company’s technical center in Arizona needed a new vehicle for transporting tools and such around their shop, they looked at a Nissan Leaf and thought, “why not?” That’s how this Nissan Leaf pickup truck, nicknamed Sparky, was born.
2014 Nissan LEAF Three Quarters
Nissan is making electric vehicle ownership a little more attractive with its “No Charge to Charge” program, which will provide 2014 Nissan Leaf owners with two years of free public charging thanks to an all-access EZ-Charge card.
Nissan Leaf Bhutan Tobgay Ghosn
Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn presented two Leaf electric cars to the government of Bhutan, as a gesture of support for the small nation's efforts to become more energy-independent. The mountainous terrain and rivers running through the country has endowed it with a surplus of hydro-electric power, the majority of which it sells to neighboring India. Conversely, Bhutan imports almost all of its transportation fuel, making the prospect of electrifying its transportation fleet an attractive one.
2014 Nissan LEAF Side View
The all-electric 2014 Nissan Leaf costs $180 more this year to accommodate a few new standard features for the base S model. This slight increase follows a significant price cut for the 2013 Nissan Leaf that jumpstarted sales of this electric hatchback—Nissan sold 22,610 copies of the Leaf in 2013, more than double the total number for 2012.

Summary
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Altima, LEAF, Pathfinder, and Sentra, model year 2013 NV200 (aka Taxi) and Infiniti JX35 and model year 2014 Infiniti Q50 and QX60 vehicles.
