The 2019 Nissan LEAF hums quietly along into the new model year. Following the debut of its second generation as a 2018 model, it remains a relatively affordable compact electric vehicle with a decent maximum range of 150 miles that’s probably enough to dispel the anxieties of most potential buyers.

Otherwise, charge times for this lithium-ion battery can be 7.5 hours with a 240-volt supply, or as much as 35 hours using a domestic 115-volt setup. Electric vehicles are becoming more popular, but they still require a certain commitment. Let’s go into greater detail and see whether a new Nissan LEAF could be a good fit.
