Watch the Leaf Sprint to 60mph

Although I doubt anyone who's looking at the Leaf is too concerned with its acceleration and top speed, the numbers are still worth looking at. 0-60 in 7.5 seconds is pretty impressive for a $30k electric car.

The results:
0-50 km/h: 3.1 s
0-60 mph: 7.5 s
0-100 km/h in 8.0 s
0-140 km/h in 17.0 s
max speed in 18.6 s

Those are some pretty surprising figures and upon doing a bit of research some owners have actually noted tire chirping aha. Nissan may have to consider offering a better set of stock tires when they introduce the larger batter pack.

The joys of instantaneous torque. And its likely that a larger battery will come with some additional weight though right? Has there been any indication of when Nissan plans on introducing it?

Just wear down the factory tires and then spring for a better set that won't chirp away from the lights without trying. 7.5 seconds is pretty great compared to a lot of other full petrol cars out there and more than sufficient to accelerate you up to highway speeds.

Yeah it would appear that the sluggish nature of the first generation Leaf, is a thing of the past. I am a little curious if it has the same pep at higher speeds on the freeway to allow for safe passing.
