Nissan LEAF Electric Power & Performance

2020 Nissan LEAF Engine SpecsOne of the first questions you might ask is what the Nissan LEAF runs on without a gas motor under the hood. The base trim operates with a 110 kW AC synchronous electric motor delivering:

  • 147 horsepower
  • 236 lb-ft of torque

Moving on up, higher 2020 Nissan LEAF trims run on a larger 160 kW AC synchronous electric motor, offering an even zippier:

  • 214 horsepower
  • 250 lb-ft of torque

Both also feature a standard 6.6 kW onboard charger for added convenience. The available portable charge cable that includes a 120 V or 240 V, allows you to plug into a 240-V wall outlet without a charging box. Rest assured, the Nissan LEAF provides palpable, reliable power no matter how near or far your roam.


The standard EPA-estimated fuel economy rating for the 2020 Nissan LEAF is an incredible 123 city/99 highway MPGe.1 With zero gas or emissions, you’ll save on more than just fuel costs. Forget routine oil changes and other gas engine maintenance or repairs. Furthermore, say goodbye to engine noise.

In the Nissan LEAF, you’ll find a 100% electric drivetrain propelling you forward as soon as you hit the pedal. By owning a fully electric vehicle, you’ll reap rewards while also drastically reducing your carbon footprint.
