In fact, it's one of the best-selling electric cars on the market today.
2018 Nissan LEAF Details
The 2018 Nissan LEAF wows drivers with its exceptional engineering. It runs on a 110 kW AC synchronous electric motor, which delivers 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft torque. That power alone dispels many of the myths about the electric car. What's really impressive about the Nissan LEAF is its fuel economy. Its electric motor gets up to 125 MPGe in the city and 100 MPGe on the highway, which is more than double the efficiency of most sedans.
