Test Drive 2016 Nissan LEAF near Arlington Heights IL today! “100% Electric. 100% Fun”: That’s how Nissan delightfully describes its all-electric vehicle, which it debuted just in time for the Christmas season of 2010. While it is far from the first fully electric car ever created, the LEAF is the first one crafted specifically for the everyday driver. Indeed, the LEAF is the best-selling all-electric car of all time. According to an analysis of the Non-Luxury Traditional Compact Car segment by HIS Automotive, the LEAF had the greatest percentage of owners who return to get another one in the 2014 model year. Now in its sixth model year of production, the 2016 Nissan LEAF is available in three variants: S, SV, and SL.

 

 

 

Interior - Test Drive 2016 Nissan LEAF near Elgin l Woodfield Nissan

2016 Nissan LEAF InteriorFeeling roomy with contemporary styling, the 2016 Nissan LEAF makes you feel at home, while being away from home. Its 92.4 cubic feet of passenger volume is enough space for accommodating up to five occupants. Plus, for long trips or drop-offs at the airport, you have 23.6 cubic feet of cargo space, and that can be extended to 30 cubic feet—thanks to the 60/40 split folding nature of the rear seats. Front seats have heating capability, and the rear seats have heating and cooling ducts. Upgrade to the SV, and you will get leather wrapping on the steering wheel and plush bio-suede cloth seat trim. With the SL, Nissan adds heating capability on the rear seats, and replaces the cloth seat covering with leather. For entertainment, the S trim comes with a four-speaker NissanConnect single dash-mounted system that includes AM/FM radio, CD player with MP3 and WMA playback, steering wheel-mounted controls, auxiliary and USB ports, 3-month SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, and a 5-inch color monitor. The entertainment system is upgraded with navigation and a 7-inch touchscreen on the other two trims. Standard comfort and convenience features on the LEAF include rearview monitor, push-button engine start, Bluetooth hands-free phone calling, and six cup holders. However, get the SV or SL to add hands-free text messaging, HomeLink universal transceiver for automatically opening garage doors, and the NissanConnect EV function for remote connection to the vehicle.

 

 

 

Exterior - Schedule your 2016 Nissan LEAF test drive near Elgin in Hoffman Estates IL

2016 Nissan LEAF ExteriorUnlike most other vehicles of its ilk, the 2016 Nissan LEAF does not look like a box of metal on four wheels. It possesses smooth edges and an aerodynamic profile. Instead of the 16-inch steel wheels on the S, the upper-level trims ride on 17-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels; and their side mirrors have power adjustability and heating capability. With the SL in particular, Nissan adds fog lights, replaces the halogen headlights with automatic on-off LED low-beam ones, and switches the regular rear spoiler for a photovoltaic solar-panel rear spoiler.

 

 

 

Powertrain

2016 Nissan LEAF Powertrain As an all-electric car, you don't ever have to take the 2016 Nissan LEAF to a gas station. In fact, it does not even have a gas tank or gasoline-powered engine! Instead, it possesses one of the most efficient drivetrain set-ups in existence. For its power, the LEAF relies on a system that combines an 110-horsepower front-mounted synchronous electric motor driving the front axle with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack and front-wheel drive. The S comes with a 24 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery that provides up to 84 miles in driving range with a single charge. The other trims have a 30 kWh battery that provides up to 107 miles -- the best available range ever. With the charge port in place of the gas tank, you can "fill up" your 2016 LEAF from the comfort of your own home, or you can visit one of the 25,000-plus public charging stations available nationwide.
