The 2022 Nissan reduces the prices of Leaf and now it is cheapest EV in the market. It has specious cabin space and semi-autonomous driving is also available with peppy acceleration but then you have to compromise on its range and that’s the main drawback of Leaf. It provides lowest driving range of 149 miles only as a standard. Its rivals such as Lia Niro EV and Chevrolet Bolt EV offers more driving range and practicality than Leaf therefore it is better to invest extra money to them.
