Nissan presents the updated 2023 Leaf in the USA

Nissan debuts the 2023 Leaf in the United States with a refreshed exterior design, new aluminium-alloy wheels and a revised lineup. The updated Leaf makes its debut at the 2022 New York International Auto Show prior to its summer on-sale date.

The biggest external differences are cosmetic: a refreshed grille, massaged front bumper moulding, and the headlights feature a new black inner finisher. Internally, there also were some design changes, as the Nissan badge on the steering wheel has been updated and there’s a new startup animation on the instrument panel screen. Black cloth upholstery was also added as standard, and the Leaf SV Plus version features gloss black finishers.

The largest differences between the two trims are the battery and the motor’s output. The LEAF S gets a 40 kWh lithium-ion battery and an electric motor that delivers 147 kW and 320 Nm of torque. The LEAF SV PLUS, meanwhile, gets a 60 kWh battery and its motor makes 160 kW and 339 Nm of torque. Official EPA-estimated ranges for both trim levels will be announced closer to launch but are expected to be similar to the 2022 models.

Pricing is also expected to be announced closer to the launch, however, Nissan also remarked that they will fall close to the 2022 version. In addition, “Qualified purchasers may also be eligible for a potential federal tax credit of up to $7,500”.

Update 22 June 2022

The refreshed 2023 Nissan Leaf is now on sale in the U.S. nationwide. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices start at $27,800. Nissan added that qualified purchasers may be eligible for up to $7,500 with the federal tax credit.

“LEAF continues to deliver on its promise of quality, innovation and value,” said Aditya Jairaj, director, EV Marketing and Sales, Nissan U.S. “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.”

    Missd opportunity with this refresh to replace the CHADdeMO plug with a CCS type1 for NA market. Will see how this sells vs 2023 Chevy Bolt.

    Nothing beats a brand new car … until there’s a problem.

    “Nissan USA will eventually honor its commitment to quality assurance and customer satisfaction.”

    That’s the reassurance I was given by the sales team when I purchased my 2023 Nissan Leaf SV Plus from Nissan of Mission Hills in July of 2022.

    As an early adopter, my decision to purchase the newest model Leaf carried the risk that not all the bugs or technology flaws would be worked out prior to the sale. The risk of buyers remorse is always probable with purchasing the newest roll outs.

    That risk became reality once I learned the SOS button in my Leaf Plus was inoperable. (Nissan Leafs are equipped with an overhead SOS button to connect to a NissanConnect Services Response Specialist who will assist in the dispatch of emergency services to your vehicle’s location.) The problem was compounded once I downloaded the NissanConnect EV & Services app to remotely access my vehicle to lock and unlock the doors among other features.

    After a trip to my local dealership’s service department and correspondence with Nissan USA, I’ve learned from Nissan Engineering the problem has been traced to my vehicle’s TCU (Telematics Control Unit). When the SOS button is pressed, an onscreen error message is generated, “The Call Failed.” Additionally, a recurring onscreen message displays, The connection to the center failed.”

    Remote access to my Nissan Leaf via the NissanConnect EV & Services app generates the following error message:

    “Unable to reach your vehicle. Make sure the vehicle is located in a good cellular reception area and try again. Call 1-877-664-2738, if the problem persists.”

    In an email response, Nissan USA stated:

    “We are investigating your NissanConnect EV & Services concern.

    Nissan is aware some MY23 LEAF vehicles equipped with NissanConnect EV & Services have demonstrated a lack of connectivity related to telematics services. An update is currently being investigated, which should resolve the connectivity concerns.”

    It is my hope Nissan USA works toward a speedy resolution.
