The release of the 2013 Nissan Leaf reflected well for the Japanese automaker as it quickly climbed to the top of the charts as one of the best-selling all-electric, zero-emissions vehicles in the world. This begs the question of what can be improved on the LEAF for the 2014 model year.

Nissan has decided to stick to the mantra of "if it's not broken, don't fix it" and at Jim Johnson Nissan, we think this is a wise decision after taking a look at the LEAF's sales figures in past year. For example, year-over-year, sales have increased to almost 300 percent for specific months. This success can be attributed to the EV's recent revamp for 2013 and the brand's choice to offer the LEAF to drivers at a lower price point through purchase or Nissan lease.

This isn't to say that the 2014 model of the LEAF will go completely unchanged. The new model will feature minor updates in the form of a RearView Monitor addition that was previously a part of the Charge Package, but will now come standard on all trim levels. Another update will be improved EV-IT functionality with SMS readout and voice destination activation.

The 2014 Nissan LEAF is scheduled to arrive in our Bowling Green, KY showroom this Ocober and will be available to drivers in the Gallatin, KY area in three trim levels: S, SV and SL.
