2018 Nissan Leaf Teasers

Nissan have continued to release teasers about the 2018 Leaf, their signature electric vehicle. Yesterday, these teasers came in the form of a new image and video. You can watch this video below.

In the video, Nissan promotes the vehicle’s advanced automatic braking technology while also mentioning the luxury interior, zero-emission driving and the confidence it will give drivers on the road. Nissan states that the vehicle will “amaze your senses”.

What to expect?

We can expect to see a full reveal of the vehicle on September 6th. Below are the specifications we can expect to see.

Range:

Considering the state of the newest electric vehicles, we can expect to see a much higher battery capacity on the Nissan Leaf, with a range of at least 200 miles. This will be a massive step up from the current-gen Leaf, with a range which only just surpasses 100 miles.

 

Technology:

The new Leaf will come with Nissan’s ProPilot self-driving technology. The features of this technology include self parking and assistance with accelerating, steering and braking. Nissan says that its automatic braking is so accurate that it will remove the need for the car’s driver to apply the brakes manually. Although driving with only the accelerator may seem daunting, we hope that this feature offers an improvement in vehicle safety, rather than creating risks.

Photos have recently emerged of a 2018 Nissan Leaf spotted in Barcelona. These photos suggest slight design changes to the new Leaf. With the limited capacity of today’s batteries, it appears that Nissan is focusing more on aerodynamics to reduce drag and improve the Leaf’s range. Flat sides and a sculpted rear bumper suggest that the new Leaf will be much more aerodynamic than its predecessor. The Leaf also sits lower than previous versions.

The new leaf features a black roof, which extends all the way down past its rear window.
