2018 Nissan LEAF receives ‘Lowest Cost to Own Award’ from Kelley Blue Book


Taking home the Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com 5-Year Cost to Own Award in the electric vehicle category was the all-new 2018 Nissan LEAF thanks to its long-term ownership value. The 5-Year Cost to Own Awards honor new vehicles and brands with the lowest projected ownership costs, based on Kelley Blue Book's 5-Year Cost to Own data for new cars for the initial five-year ownership period. Taken into consideration for this award are things like depreciation, expected fuel costs, maintenance and repair costs, finance and insurance fees and state fees for all new models over the initial five-year ownership period.

Overall, the all-new 2018 Nissan LEAF has been completely re-invented. The vehicle combines greater range with a dynamic new design, and you can’t forget about the latest Nissan technology. The new LEAF embodies Nissan's Intelligent Mobility, featuring technologies such as ProPILOT Assist, e-Pedal, Automatic Emergency Braking and more.

The 2018 LEAF S adds attractive new styling inside and out, a 40% increase in driving range, a 37% increase in horsepower, e-Pedal, and Automatic Emergency Braking.

The 2018 LEAF SV not only includes the S trim's long list of standard features, but it also includes Intelligent Cruise Control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 2018 LEAF SL, the top level trim, comes standard with additional features like Bose Premium audio system, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Warning, Intelligent Around View Monitor and a portable L1/L2 charging cord.

Electronic vehicles tend to be less expensive to operate than gas powered vehicles and the 2018 Nissan LEAF provides more range, content and technology at a lower price.
