2014 Nissan Leaf : Current Models

The updated 2013 Nissan Leaf is not yet that long in the tooth, but Nissan has already revealed how it is going to improve the 2014 model. We should make clear from the get-go that upgrades are minor. Very, very minor.

Basically, the RearView Monitor, which was previously part of the Charge Package, is now standard on all grades and the updated EV-IT functionality that offers a voice commanded nav system to enter your destination and an SMS readout is now available on all models (trim lines S, SV and SL). The 2014 will be available in October. You can find the Leaf-specific parts of Nissan's press release about the 2014 changes below.

It makes some sense to leave things as they are, since production at the Smyrna, TN plant has not ramped up quick enough to keep pace with demand. Nissan has said it will be able to make 150,000 Leaf EVs a year there, but the current US demand of around 2,200 a month enough to drop inventory levels to, in some cases, just a nine-day supply. While Nissan did make some important changes to the 2013 MY compared to the 2012, they were mostly under the hood. You can read about them in our First Drive report.
