2011 Nissan Leaf Long-Term Road Test

2011 Nissan Leaf: A Regular Ass Whooping

May 12, 2011

Leaf versus Smart Electric.jpg

After we track tested the 2011 Smart ForTwo Electric Drive Passion (smallest car with the biggest name), and realized how slow it was, it got me thinking. How would its acceleration curve compare to our long-term Nissan Leaf? It gets smoked by the Leaf.

Leaf track test results:

0-60 = 10.2 seconds

1/4 mile = 17.5 sec. @ 75.9 mph

Smart track test results:

0-60 = 22.4 seconds

1/4 mile = 22.0 sec @ 59.5 mph
