The Leaf S is powered by a 110-kW electric motor drawing power from a 40-kWh battery. The result is 147 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. It feels faster than the figures suggest, due to the way power is delivered in an EV. The S has a generous standard features list that includes automatic climate control, an eight-inch touchscreen interface with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, keyless entry with a push-button start, and automatic emergency braking. It’s a decent spec level for city driving, and if you stick within these confines, the 151-mile range should suffice.
