2022 Nissan Leaf Trims & Specs

There are five trim levels in the Nissan Leaf range for 2022. At the entry point to the lineup, the S model comes well equipped with both safety and convenience features. There is automatic climate control, a four-speaker audio system, and an eight-inch touchscreen that runs both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Entry to the cabin is keyless, and there is push-button start and automatic emergency braking. Nissan's e-Pedal regenerative braking system is part of the list of standard fare and features two settings. It is further bolstered with NissanConnect EV.

Moving up to the SV adds navigation with traffic updates and adaptive cruise control to the suite, while fog lights, heated front seats, and a six-speaker audio system is part of the deal. Both the S and SV feature the same 147-hp electric motor, 40-kWh battery, and 50-kW charger. It has a 149-mile range on a single charge.

Plus models have a larger 62 kWh battery and boast a 214-hp electric motor with a 100-kW charging port. For the S Plus, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. SV Plus gets an auto-dimming mirror, a power driver's seat, and a surround-view monitor too. At the apex of the range, the SL Plus is exclusively fitted with a leather interior and an improved seven-speaker Bose sound setup.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Nissan Leaf?

The cheapest model is the base S, with an MSRP of $27,400. Next in line is the SV, costing $28,800. After that, the range moves on the Plus models, which include the 160-kW motor, 62 kWh battery and 226-mile claimed range. The S Plus retails for $32,400, and the SV Plus goes for $35,400. The top-of-the-line SL Plus costs $37,400. An additional $975 is charged for destination and delivery fees.

The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt has a starting price of $31,000, while the pricing for the Kia Soul EV has not been announced yet, nor has it been confirmed for arrival in the US at the time of writing. The latter has a claimed range of 243 miles. The Leaf's biggest problem is Tesla, as mentioned earlier. The price of the top-spec Nissan Leaf puts it directly against the Tesla Model 3 - a Standard Range Plus if you want to spend less, and a Long Range if you're willing to spend more. Tesla's class-leading sales figures clearly speak for themselves.

🚗What 2022 Nissan Leaf Model Should I Buy?

The Leaf remains the budget alternative in the EV segment, with the entry-level S retailing for significantly less than the Tesla Model 3. That's why we'd recommend either the S if you want the most bang for your buck, or, if you can afford to stretch to the SV, it would be a worthwhile investment. The SV uses the same 110 kW electric motor and 40 kWh battery so the range isn't spectacular, but it should suffice for most city dwellers. The SV shares the already comprehensive standard features list with the S, but adds adaptive cruise control, navigation, alloy wheels, heated front seats, and a six-speaker audio system. The top-spec models are simply too expensive, as the competition is too strong at close to the $40,000 price point.
