Leading consumer advocate J.D. Power recognized the Nissan LEAF with top honors in their 2020 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS).
The three-year-in-service study surveyed owners about their 2017 model year vehicles, with a lower score reflecting fewer problems per vehicle.
Nissan LEAF ranked as the top performing non-premium vehicle and at the top of the compact car segment with a score of 83 problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100). The Nissan LEAF is the first pure electric vehicle to win an overall segment award in the history of the VDS study.
“The Vehicle Dependability Study is a great validation of a vehicle’s true quality because it comes after three years of real world, everyday use, ” said Mark Swenson, vice president, Total Customer Satisfaction, Nissan North America, Inc. “Nissan LEAF also recently won a Kelley Blue Book ‘5 Year Cost to Own Award’ for the third consecutive year among electric vehicles ”
For 2020, Nissan LEAF is available with a choice of two battery options, 40 kWh (LEAF) and 62 kWh (LEAF PLUS), ensuring that there’s a Nissan LEAF to meet the driving needs of a wide range of customers. Because ownership satisfaction and peace of mind are pivotal for all Nissan LEAF owners, the battery-limited warranty of 8 years/100,000 miles (whichever occurs first) is standard for all versions.
