The Euro-spec Nissan Leaf e+ has received a five-star rating from the recently held Green NCAP assessment.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What is Green NCAP?

    Green NCAP is an independent testing body that promotes the development of clean, energy efficient, and environment-friendly cars.
  • What scores did the Nissan Leaf e+ get?

    The Nissan Leaf e+ got 10/10 in the clean air index, 9.9/10 in the energy efficiency index, and 10/10 in the greenhouse gas index.
  • The latest iteration of the zero-emission Leaf has passed the comprehensive testing with a 10 out of 10 score for air quality,  a 9.9 out of 10 score for energy efficiency,  and a 10 out of 10 score for greenhouse gas emissions.

    According to Green NCAP,  the independent testing body “assesses vehicles based only on what is emitted at the tailpipe, so the Nissan Leaf e+ easily gets the maximum points in two of the three areas of the assessment — Clean Air and Greenhouse Gases — as local emissions of these are zero.”

    The Nissan Leaf e+ earns its place in the five-star stable together with Lexus UX300e, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Fiat 500, Hyundai Nexo, and the VW ID.3. 

    “The maximum five-star rating for the Leaf e+ awarded by Green NCAP is a powerful testament to the quality of the product, and the extensive expertise that Nissan has gained throughout a pioneering decade of innovation in electrification. I want to thank the whole Research & Development team which made this achievement possible,” said Nissan AMIEO Region Senior Vice President for Research & Development Dave Moss.

    The Nissan Leaf e+ is a step up from the OG Leaf. It boasts 22kWh more than the standard Leaf and can go 74 miles more. The Nissan Leaf, like the one offered here in the Philippines, has a 40kWh battery while the Leaf e+ features a 62kWh battery. This translates to a 385-mile range compared to the 311-mile range owners get from the standard Leaf.

    Another notable feature offered by the Leaf e+ is its innovative e-Pedal that allows drivers to accelerate, decelerate and stop using one pedal – maximizing efficiency on the move.

    In addition, the Nissan Leaf e+ comes with B Mode and Eco Mode functionalities, combining to maximize regenerative braking, optimize power output and conserve energy providing confidence and reassurance on longer journeys.

    “Since the model’s launch as the first mass-market electric vehicle in 2010, the Nissan Leaf has made sustainable, zero-emission mobility an attainable reality for hundreds of thousands of customers around the world,” said Nissan AMIEO Region Vice President for Product Planning Marco Fioravanti.

    We’re excited to see the Nissan Leaf e+ reach Philippine shores, especially now that the country is more open to replacing ICEs with EVs. Currently, the Leaf e+ is offered in major EV markets like the U.S., Canada, Australia, and Europe.
