Nissan has revealed the US market version of the 2013 Leaf. The model will be officially unveiled next week at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The new Leaf will be sold in the US with the similar technical and equipment improvements as the JDM model, but this one will be assembled at the Nissan Smyrna factory in Tennessee. The lithium-ion batteries will be also made in US, instead of being imported from Japan. 

The 2013 Nissan Leaf has no design improvements but comes with better energy efficiency thanks to refined aerodynamics, enhanced energy management and powerful regenerative braking. 

The entry-level for the new Leaf will be named S and will join the previously SV and SL trims. The base trim version comes with a trip computer, Automatic Temperature Control (ATC), Push Button Start, power windows and locks, 16-inch steel wheels with full covers and a 3.6 kW onboard charger.

The 2013 Nissan Leaf also comes with three new option kits. There is Quick Charge Package (S trim only), LED Headlight and Quick Charge Port Package (SV trim only) and the Premium Package (SV and SL trim levels).
