Starting price for 2021 all-electric Nissan Leaf set at $32,545

(December 21, 2020) NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The all-electric 2021 Nissan Leaf is on sale now with a starting price of $32,545 including a $925 destination charge. With more than 500,000 Nissan Leaf electric vehicles sold worldwide, Leaf has been one of the best-selling electric vehicles for the past 10 years. The 2021 Nissan Leaf is available in two versions, Leaf and the extended-range Leaf PLUS.

Leaf is equipped with a 40 kWh lithium-ion battery and 110-kW electric motor that delivers 147 horsepower, 236 lb-ft of torque and up to 149 miles of range. It’s available in two trim levels, S and SV.

Nissan Leaf PLUS, which starts at $39,145 including destination fee, features a larger-capacity 62-kWh lithium-ion battery — increasing the range to up to 226 miles. Leaf PLUS also features a more powerful 160 kW motor that produces 214 horsepower — an increase of 45 percent – and 250 lb-ft of torque. Leaf PLUS is offered in three trim levels – S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS.

Standard on Leaf SL PLUS and optional on Leaf and Leaf SV PLUS is ProPILOT Assist, a hands-on driver assist system that combines Nissan's Intelligent Cruise Control and steering assist technologies and a stop and hold function that can bring the vehicle to a full stop, hold in place and can bring the vehicle back up to speed when traffic starts moving again.
Further enhancing the Nissan Leaf driving experience is the standard e-Pedal, which allows the driver to start, accelerate, decelerate and come to a full stop and hold using only the accelerator pedal.

Both the Leaf and Leaf PLUS can be charged up to 80 percent in 40-45 minutes using the quick charge port. Also available is a portable charging cable that can be plugged into either a 120-volt outlet or any 240-volt outlet, such as those used for electric clothes driers, eliminating the need to have a level 2 charger installed in your home.

Every 2021 Nissan Leaf is offered with a limited lithium-ion battery warranty covering defects in materials or workmanship for eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first, for the battery pack. Nissan also provides a limited warranty against battery capacity loss below nine bars of capacity as shown on the vehicle’s battery capacity level gauge for the first eight years or 100,000 miles for all models.
