, Automotive Editor -

When the Nissan Leaf appeared in 2010, it was the first all-electric automobile that could seat five people and carry a moderate load of cargo. It was a fully functioning daily car with a hatchback, a complete sound system, electronic communications capability, and power accessories.

Just three years later, the 2013 model retains the same basic look, but further upgrades have been added in the SV and SL trim levels. Among these is a faster onboard charger that can have the Leaf ready to roll again in about four hours.

Major changes included:

In 2011, Nissan rolled out an electric-powered hatchback that it named the Leaf. The first-generation Leaf came only in a hatchback variant, and it featured relatively conventional styling. Under its hood, an electric motor hummed to the tune of 107 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque, and drew its power from a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. In 2013, the Leaf's torque rating dropped to 187 pound-feet. In 2011 and 2012, the EPA gave the Leaf a 99 MPGe combined rating and a 73-mile range, but advancements in 2013 led to a jump to 115 MPGe combined and a 75-mile range.
