Refreshed Nissan Leaf to debut at 2022 NYIAS


The Nissan Leaf is undoubtedly one of the best-selling EVs on the market and has represented the automotive brand’s commitment to bringing all-electric mobility to the masses. Nissan continues that focus with the 2023 Leaf, which is set to make its debut at the upcoming 2022 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS).


  • What changes does the 2023 Nissan Leaf offer?

    The Nissan Leaf offers minor updates to both the exterior and interior of the vehicle as well as a simplified lineup.
  • When will the 2023 Nissan Leaf be available?

    It will be made available in the US sometime this summer (from June to September).
  • According to the American arm of the Yokohama-based carmaker, the 2023 Nissan Leaf will have “a refreshed exterior design, new aluminum-alloy wheels, and a revised lineup to deliver maximum value for EV customers.”


    That said, the front end of the updated Leaf boasts an enhanced appearance thanks to its redesigned grille, bumper molding, and headlights, that feature a new black inner finisher. Additionally, the Nissan badge on the EV is now illuminated and has been updated to the brand's new design identity.

    Changes can also be seen on the Nissan Leaf’s tire deflectors, rear under diffuser, and rear spoiler, which now features a more streamlined design to help improve the vehicle’s aerodynamic properties.


    Finally, the exterior updates are rounded up by a set of aggressive five-spoke 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

    Nissan also gave the Leaf minor interior updates. The automaker said that the 2023 Leaf includes the new Nissan badge on the steering wheel and a new start-up video on the instrument panel screen.


    The 2023 Nissan Leaf will be offered in two trims: Leaf S and Leaf SV Plus. The former is equipped with a 40-kWh lithium-ion battery and 110-kW electric motor that delivers 147 horsepower and 319.97Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the latter packs a 60-kWh lithium-ion battery and a powerful 160-kW electric motor that produces 214 horsepower and 338.95Nm of torque.

    Estimated range of both variants will be made available in the coming months, although per Nissan, the numbers are expected to be somewhat similar to the outgoing 2022 models.


    After its debut at NYIAS, the 2023 Nissan Leaf is expected to go on sale sometime this summer (from June to September).
