Look Nissan LEAF to go further

Before you get too excited, note: no acceleration figures have been offered at this point.

The second generation Nissan Leaf was unveiled in September 2017 showing up with a more futuristic look that entirely got rid of the previous "squished frog" appearance.

Expect plenty of safety systems.

It will go sale in Japan from October 2.

The all-new 2018 Nissan Leaf sheds its predecessor's quirky styling in favor of a more mainstream look. It is China's aim to have electric battery cars and plug-in hybrids to account for at least one-fifth of its vehicle sales by 2025. Nissan's Leaf has some work to do if it wants to catch up by 2019.

The 2018 Nissan Leaf has made its official debut in Tokyo before going on sale in the United States early next year. Finally, the launch event photos of Nissan Leaf 2018 are out. If the owner catches the battery depletion at the low warning signal up to 80 per cent of the battery can be recharged in 40 minutes. The whole new route is expected to open different markets that are new and not an adaptation of rival markets, even the most popular Tesla.

New technology in the LEAF includes the ProPilot driver assistance system which makes driving safer and easier on single-lane roads, and the ProPilot Park which will automatically control acceleration, steering and braking to park the auto.

Styling details at the back, like those raised haunches over the rear wheels and the floating roofline, conspire to make the hatchback look nearly like a crossover, at least to my eyes.

"For me, it's important for us to focus on the loyalty piece".

The last-generation Nissan LEAF had a short-lived NISMO version offered in Japan. That auto will also be more powerful, but we don't have any more details to go on at this time. When we had asked the former head of Nissan in India about his thoughts on the leaf for India he said, "We will use Nissan Leaf to understand the market but I don't think it's the ultimate solution for India".

Consumers will also be able to choose an optional extra self-driving mode, branded by Nissan as ProPilot autonomous driving technology, which can be used on a single-lane expressway.

The Leaf has also caught one-pedal fever, bumping up the regen you experience when lifting off the throttle.

The new Nissan LEAF replaces the first-generation model, which has become the world's best-selling electric vehicle.

Redesigned both inside and outside, the new Nissan LEAF also incorporates NissanConnect which enables the driver to search for continuously updated information such as the location and operating hours of free charging stations and charging station availability. On the inside, you'll find a 7-inch touchscreen and a nice digital/analog driver instrument cluster.
