Nissan Leaf EV Plus
A solid evolution of the best selling EV of all time. The 226-mile range should be enough for most, but it’s short of its competitors. ProPilot Assist is one of the best driver’s assistant systems on the market, so the driving companion is great. But driving overall is sort of boring.
- ProPilot Assistant is an outstanding driving assistant
- Lots of cargo space
- The dash cluster beats out infotainment screens as the place for info
- Boring to drive
- The 224-mile range is short of competitors
- Voice assistant is frustrating

- 80AVERAGE CRITIC SCORE10 ReviewsArs Technica80Nissan's bigger-battery BEVBut the Leaf Plus is a good car; certainly the best new Nissan you can buy. Whether you think the extra range and power is worth the extra $6,000 over the already-good 40kWh version probably depends on how far your commute is and how many road trips you think you'll do.CNET80A better EV, but maybe not the bestNissan’s Leaf Plus is a better Leaf, but not as compelling as many other EVs.Car and Driver80The Nissan Leaf Plus Is the Better Leaf We've Been Waiting ForYes, the Leaf Plus's range estimate is lower than those of its main competitors, namely the 238-mile Chevrolet Bolt, the 239-mile Kia Niro EV, and the 258-mile Hyundai Kona Electric. But the Nissan has always been a solid hatchback offering, and the Plus will be readily available in all 50 states, unlike the Hyundai and the Kia.Automobile Magazine80The Nissan Leaf Plus Has More Power and Range, but Is It More Compelling?Yes, we’re convinced the Leaf Plus would be a good runabout or commuter. In case of the need to drive upstate, downstate, or far into the desert, another vehicle from one’s collection would be enlisted.Autoblog80Bigger battery adds dimensionFor now, this cheap and cheerful electric appliance gets more appealing with competitive range and a little more power. A "hallelujah" moment? Not exactly. Let's call it a medium-sized step in the right direction. That's more like it.Jalopnik90The 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus Brings The Range And The FunThe Leaf the most exciting thing Nissan has made within the past few years, a legitimately fun, little electric car. Yes, we rag on Nissan for forgetting its rich sports car past a lot, but we’d be fools to ignore its electric future nonetheless.VentureBeat80How the best-selling electric car's tech stacks upI’m not going to buy this car soon, but I’ll think seriously about it when one of my over 10-year-old cars finally falls apart. This zero-emission car is on the shortlist.The Car Connection70The Car Connection Expert ReviewWith a quicker-accelerating, 226-mile Plus model in the lineup, the 2019 Nissan Leaf is a lot of electric car for the money.ExtremeTech80The Long Ranger Rides, FinallyThe Nissan Plus is a solid, roomy midsize EV hatchback from a company with years of experience building mainstream EVs.The Independent80Car Review: Nissan Leaf E+The message?

- 80AVERAGE USER SCORE1 ReviewsBen80April 1, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I was very interested in buying the new Nissan Leaf, having previously owned the original Leaf and a BMW i3. It had good range and tech at a good price, and is practical for most people and purposes. However, there is one glaring fault with the car that unfortunately makes it an impossible purchase for me - incredibly, there is no telescopic adjustment on the steering wheel. That may not sound like a big deal, and for a lot of people it might not be, but if you're over a certain height it makes finding a comfortable driving position impossible. Honestly can't believe Nissan didn't include something so simple, considering all the advanced tech on the car otherwise.
