The LEAF enters 2013 with a host of mechanical changes as well as a few changes to the trim levels and available features. A newly available 6.6KW onboard charger is capable of cutting 220V charge times in half, down to as little as four hours to a full charge. Improved energy management is aided by new aerodynamic enhancements, better regenerative braking and a more efficient heater. A new trim level dubbed "S" has been introduced as a new entry-level model, giving buyers the option of a basic trim. SL trims also benefit with increased levels of equipment.

Nissan has broken new ground with the LEAF, which is the company's first all-electric subcompact. Unlike the Tesla roadster or smart electric, this electric car has room for five, and it's being built on a much more massive scale. With an MSRP of $28,800, it offers pure, practical full-electric vehicle driving more affordable than the nearest competitor, the Chevrolet Volt, which stickers at over $39,100.
