All electric, and packed with ingenious technology, the new Nissan LEAF is the company’s first car in Europe that will embrace the early steps of advanced driver assistance, and is packed with cutting-edge innovations such as e-Pedal, allowing you to drive and brake in a totally new and seamless way.
It can also go further, with a range of 378 km/235miles* on a single charge, and has been redesigned for a new generation, with a sleeker look inside and out.
The focal point of Nissan Intelligent Power in the new Nissan LEAF is its e-powertrain, which offers improved energy efficiency and increased torque and power output for an enhanced dynamic performance. Complementing this new drivetrain is the high-tech lithium-ion battery pack, which delivers increased power and energy storage capacity.
Along with enhanced energy efficiency, the new e-powertrain delivers an exhilarating, linear driving performance with a power output of 110 kW. Torque has been increased to 320 Nm, resulting in improved acceleration.
The new Nissan LEAF’s driving range has been increased to 378km/235miles (New European Driving Cycle) on a single charge. For those who want to drive their new LEAF further, Nissan will introduce a high-power version with increased motor power and battery capacity at a higher price at the end of 2018. This version will provide an even longer range, giving customers a range choice depending on their driving needs.
The new Nissan LEAF’s design expresses the company’s forward-thinking attitude. The design was inspired by the IDS Concept car, which was first shown at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.
The front features Nissan’s signature V-motion grille, echoing the DNA it shares with Nissan’s other global top-sellers, such as the Nissan X-Trail and European favorite, the Nissan Qashqai. However, the grille’s blue color, a new signature feature for Nissan’s electric vehicles, sets it apart. The floating roof adds style and a sense of movement. The sleek LED headlamps feature Nissan’s characteristic boomerang design.
The new Nissan LEAF’s completely redesigned interior has a tasteful, understated look and feel. This has been achieved thanks to higher quality materials and overall fit and finish, elevating the “life on board” to be consistent with the refined nature of the drive.
Drivers and passengers will immediately appreciate the signature vibrant blue stitching in the seats, dashboard and steering wheel and the new look of the 7-inch, full-color (TFT) display. The display’s layout has been redesigned for easier access to key features such as the Safety Shield technology, state-of-charge, power gauge, and audio and navigation system information. In some countries, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have been added to the infotainment system in cars equipped with the navigation system.
The new Nissan LEAF replaces the first-generation model, which has become the world’s best-selling electric vehicle. More than 283,000 customers have chosen the LEAF since the model went on sale in 2010.
The new Nissan LEAF will be on sale in Europe from January 2018.
