For the base grade, which is simply dubbed the Leaf S, the Japanese automaker is asking a minimum of $27,800, before the $1,095 destination and handling. This makes it exactly $400 more expensive than the 2022 model year, which came at $27,400. The SV Plus has an MSRP of $35,800, also $400 pricier than before.

Besides asking more money for the 2023 Leaf, Nissan has also updated the styling. For one, the electric hatchback now has a redesigned grille, as well as new headlights. The optional 17-inch multi-spoke alloys are part of the novelties too, and so is the black cloth upholstery, with gray finishers on the S grade and glossy black finishers on the SV Plus. Moreover, the car features the company’s new logo inside and out.

At this point, you might be wondering about the specifications of each model, and your guess is as good as ours, as Nissan hasn’t said anything about it at the time of writing, and their official website still had the 2022 car listed. Still, they do claim that both grades get the Safety Shield 360 at no additional cost, with six active driver assistance technologies. On top of that, the SV Plus adds the Intelligent Around View Monitor and ProPilot Assist.

Leaf continues to deliver on its promise of quality, innovations, and value,” said the Nissan U.S.A. Director of EV Marketing and Sales, Aditya Jairaj. “A competitive price point paired with a host of standard technology features and refreshed design makes Nissan Leaf a truly attractive option for anyone considering an EV.

Choosing the base grade will get you a 40 kWh lithium-ion battery, powering the 147 hp and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque electric motor. The SV Plus has a 60 kWh battery and a 214 hp and 250 lb-ft (339 Nm) motor, and can travel for an EPA-estimated 212 miles (341 km) on a full charge, 63 miles (101 km) more than the Leaf S.
