Now that electric cars are becoming more and more common, many drivers are wondering about their electric range. If you are curious about how far the 2015 Nissan Leaf can drive before being recharged, then you’re in the right place!

What is the 2015 Nissan Leaf’s electric range?

2015 Nissan LeafAccording to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the 2015 Leaf can drive an average of 84 miles on a single charge, which happens to be two and a half times the distance the average American drives each day. If your daily commute falls within 84 miles roundtrip, just think about the money you could save on fuel! Thanks to its powerful lithium-ion battery, the 2015 Nissan Leaf achieves the equivalent of 126 miles per gallon. And advanced technology helps you gauge the vehicle’s performance and optimize its range.

What are some ways to extend the 2015 Leaf’s electric range?

  1. Using the convenient Carwings app or website, you can let your 2015 Leaf heat up or cool down while it’s still plugged in. That way, you can conserve the power that would have been used and save it for driving.
  2. Maintain a constant, moderate speed on the road. As you can probably imagine, acceleration and higher speeds require more energy from the vehicle, which will tend to drain your Leaf’s battery quicker.
  3. Plan ahead and account for long, steep heels, which will take a little more out of your 2015 Nissan Leaf battery. You can also check to see if there are charging stations near your destination for you to refuel for the trip home.
