The Nissan Leaf, the little electric vehicle that could, is back for the 2025 model year, starting at $29,280, unchanged from ‘24.

That price, which includes destination, is for the entry-level S trim, packaged with a 40-kWh battery pack and a front-mounted electric motor, rated at 147 horsepower. The trim tree is not the fullest, as prospective buyers only have one other choice: The SV Plus, providing more range from a 60-kWh battery, more power from a 214-horsepower electric motor, and offering more equipment while upping the starting price to $37,330, another unchanged sticker.

And speaking of range, the smaller pack is estimated at 149 miles on a full charge; the larger battery is up to 212 miles. And throughout the duration of those miles, occupants are protected by the Leaf-standard Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite, including various driver assistance and convenience systems. In that vein, the SV Plus gains a few more goodies a la ProPilot Assist and an Intelligent Around View Monitor.

Buyers of the 2025 Nissan Leaf are covered by Nissan’s EV Carefree+, providing scheduled maintenance for three years or 36,000 miles, battery health monitoring and EV roadside assistance.

To be blunt, the 2025 Nissan Leaf hasn’t changed much for the next model year– certainly not enough to warrant another “turning a new Leaf” pun. But that’s okay, as the Nissan Leaf remains a viable option for compact EV commuting.
