The Nissan Leaf was among the first electric cars for the mass market, a model that we have had the opportunity to test several times. The future of the Leaf has already been decided and we know that this sedan will be replaced by an electric crossover that should debut in 2025. Meanwhile, the Japanese brand has decided to touch up the Leaf. with the Model Year 2022. No technical changes but only some small design innovations. The powertrains, in fact, do not undergo any changes.
