NISSAN LEAF. 100% ELECTRIC. ZERO PETROL.
The new car.
The Nissan LEAF is 100% electric. You will never put even a drop of petrol in it. Ever. It produces zero CO2 tailpipe emissions. In fact it doesn’t even have a tailpipe.Instead it depends on one of our most advanced lithium-ion batteries ever developed. The LEAF is so vastly original, it will change the way you think about and drive cars for many years to come. Switch to electric today.
Innovation for all.
- 100% electric motor
- Control many car features from your smart phone
- Satellite Navigation and Reversing Camera with Predictive Path Technology
- ANCAP 5-star safety rating
Charging the battery.
There are 3 ways to charge the Li-ion battery. ‘Quick charge’ can take the battery to 80% charge in about 30 minutes. ‘Normal charge’ takes around 7-8 hours from empty to full and ‘Trickle charge’ takes around 14 hours*.
*Approximate times for ‘quick charge’ from a DC fast-charge station and for ‘normal charge’ and ‘trickle charge’ with a 240-V home charging dock, purchased separately.
Let the sun shine.
Perfect for the Australian climate, the rear spoiler’s solar panel converts sunlight into energy for the 12v battery, which helps to power many of the interior accessories.
The new car, the Nissan LEAF.
The Nissan LEAF has a new vroom, new torque, new fuel, new sound, new dashboard and new maintenance.

No more fumbling for keys.
The LEAF also uses the Intelligent Key system. You leave your key in your pocket or bag. You open the car door. You start the engine. You drive away. Simple. Like all good technology ought to be.
Bringing back the art of conversation.
The LEAF is almost completely silent. Besides being free from normal engine noise, the headlight lens covers redirect airflow to reduce wind noise. The car’s flat bottom surface also cuts wind resistance, while the body is designed to keep the cabin comfortably quiet. Just as it should be.
You can control many of the car’s features with the car’s own iPhone®^ and Android®^ app. At the swipe of a finger you can check the battery’s charge level, how far you can go on your current charge and operate the climate control system, from a beach, a cafe, or work... indeed, anywhere you can impress friends from.

Friendlier to the earth.
The LEAF really is a greener car. Because we make parts of the interior and bodywork with anything from water bottles to plastic bags, to old car parts and even second hand home appliances, you can drive knowing you’re being a bit friendlier to the environment.
No need for any lessons.
You’ll find the LEAF drives just like any normal car. Perhaps better. Acceleration is quick and smooth but without the vibration normally associated with standard cars. And because the battery is mounted on the floor, the vehicle’s weight balance and road handling is excellent. Normal just improved.
In a world without petrol, what would we do with all the bowsers?
To launch the LEAF, we asked local artist James Dive to create an interactive art installation called 'A World Without Petrol'. James transformed over 40 old petrol bowsers into fun, interactive sculptures for passers by to play with. Click on the video to see what happened.
