2020 Nissan LEAF Plus Test Drive Review: It's A Winner

The best LEAF to date, but can it go the distance?

The Nissan LEAF was the first mass-market all-electric vehicle. Despite other EV upstarts making gains, it’s still the top-selling electric car in history, with over 500,000 sold worldwide. In the ten years it has been on the market, it’s won about every award for green automobiles, including the World Green Car award twice.

For 2020, the LEAF carries over continued refinement and enhancement. There are five models available for 2020, the 40 kWh S and SV, the 62 kWh S PLUS, SV PLUS, and top-of-the-lineup SL PLUS.

We wanted to see how the 2020 LEAF stacked up to previous LEAFs and to see how it compared in our annual flat lands-to-the-sierra trip and back. Nissan was happy to oblige and delivered us a 2020 LEAF SL PLUS for evaluation.
