Gallery: NAIAS 2013: We Check Out Nissan’s New Quick-Charging 2013 Leaf...

Rear detail.

The new Nissan LEAF has improved efficiency given better aerodynamics. It is rated at 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, and it is expected to have an improved driving range. We don’t see anything all that different with this LEAF, but we look forward to any extra miles we can eke out of our electric cars.

Check out our gallery to see a white Nissan LEAF with all the trimmings from the stand at Detroit.

    I think maybe it should be called “quicker charging” rather than quick charge. The 2012 Leaf SL had the DCQC port which allows a 80% charge in 30 minutes.
    The 2013 models (SL & SV) now have a 6.6KW L2 charger as opposed to the 2012 3.3KW charger, so using the L2 charger is twice as fast, the quick charge on the 2013 models are exactly the same speed. Also the entry model S will offer the 6.6KW charger as an optional upgrade for $1300.
    Also not mentioned is the considerable price cuts for the 2013 models.
