2022 Nissan Leaf review: Our expert's take
What Is the 2022 Nissan Leaf?
The Nissan Leaf is a five-seat four-door hatchback powered by a standard 147-horsepower electric motor and a 40 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack. Stepping up to the Leaf Plus brings a bigger battery and a more powerful electric motor. EPA-estimated driving range also improves to up to 226 miles versus 149 miles in the regular Leaf. The front-wheel-drive Leaf competes with other electric cars like the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Tesla Model 3.
What’s New on the 2022 Nissan Leaf?
Nissan has knocked more than $4,000 off the Leaf’s starting price, which is now $28,375, including a $975 destination charge. That price doesn’t include a federal tax credit of up to $7,500, which the Leaf is still eligible for as of publication. The base Leaf S also adds a quick-charge port.
What Features in the 2022 Nissan Leaf Are Most Important?
Standard features include:
- 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system
- Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity

Should I Buy the 2022 Nissan Leaf?
A lower base price could put the 2022 Nissan Leaf on more car-shopping lists, especially as awareness around electric cars increases. The regular Leaf’s range is lower than many other current electric vehicles, but it may still be enough to meet your everyday driving needs. Leaf downsides include ride harshness, backseat comfort for adult passengers and low-grade cabin materials.
