Outside, the Leaf's styling is a little more conventional than the previous generation, losing a little bit of that science-project look, especially in back. It wears more of a traditional hatchback shape but does have a floating-roof-like design that gives it a polished look.
Inside, the Leaf has room for up to five people, with passenger space staying roughly the same as the outgoing model. The Leaf features a center screen that shows vehicle and entertainment information, and navigation-equipped models include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Smart phone connectivity.
The new Leaf's electric motor makes 147 horsepower and 236 pounds-feet of torque, which is 38 percent more horsepower and 26 percent more torque than the previous Leaf's motor.
Nissan says the Leaf can travel an estimated 150 miles on a single charge.
