2021 Nissan Leaf Wins "Lowest Cost To Own" Award From Kelley Blue Book

Written By, Brad R

For our readers that recall the first-ever electric Nissan vehicle, the Nissan Leaf, they have noticed the change the vehicle has undergone in its decade plus years of being available. For that length of time this prestigious car has netted drivers plenty of money saved thanks to its electric range and low cost. This vehicle is in the limelight again thanks to awards like the most recent win for the Nissan product, this time from Kelley Blue Book (KBB). Today, more so than in recent times with rising fuel prices, owners are looking for a wise alternative to get from point A to point B. For smart shoppers, the award that speaks to value is the lowest-cost-to-own distinction that was bestowed upon the 2021 Nissan Leaf. We know the Nissan brand is already doing big numbers in 2021 and will look to continue to gain support.

2021 Nissan Leaf Offers Improved Safety As Well

The 2021 winner of the Best Electric Vehicle, according to KBB, has much to offer buyers. Even in the base trim, the Leaf S, a slew of modern standard features are present. Buyers gain keyless entry, an 8-inch color touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. The Nissan Leaf comes with Nissan's Safety Shield 360 that offers automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring and forward-collision warning. These features all come standard across each trim of the 2021 Nissan Leaf. We've seen how popular the Nissan brand has become, but there are some options to consider within the decision to drive the Nissan electric vehicle; which one? There is an upcoming Nissan EV minicar on the way.

Electric Range of the Nissan Leaf Vehicles

Perhaps the most majestic part of the Nissan Leaf is the ability to offer an electric range of 149 miles. The Nissan Leaf Plus is another choice for those who want an even more beneficial ability to travel further as the Leaf Plus goes 226 miles off a single charge. The difference between these vehicles is the Nissan Leaf starts at $31,670 MSRP (Plus Destination fee) and the Leaf Plus begins at $38,270 MSRP (Plus destination fee). They are both capable of being charged with a Level 2 EV charger (240-volt) and the Leaf only needs 8 hours for a charge, the Leaf Plus requires 11.5 hours of charge. The average cost of the Nissan Leaf is almost $6,000 less compared to the segment average, according to KKB. This is what they had to say about the prevailing atmosphere of EVs and how the Nissan Leaf remains a practical vehicle for customers. 

“Before the Tesla Model 3 arrived, the Leaf was the world’s best-selling electric vehicle. So with the weight of a well-established company like Nissan behind it, along with a comprehensive dealer network, the Leaf could be a good choice for buyers taking tentative steps to perhaps their first EV. The Leaf is also reliable, and maintenance costs are low because there aren’t many components that need replacing regularly.” Kelley Blue Book Expert Review
