Nissan Leaf to go further in 2018

2018 Nissan Leaf

This is 179km better than the NEDC figure for the 24kW base version of the outgoing vehicle and even beats the current 30kW range- topper by 129km.

The 2018 Nissan Leaf is scheduled to arrive in the usa and Europe in early 2018. Ltd., and chairman, Nissan North America, noted Nissan sales have grown to 1.5 million units in 2016. (£ 26,850.) and GM Chevy Bolt with a range of 238 miles starts at $38000.

Over at Jalopnik, writer Justin Westbrook was less than wowed by the design aesthetic but found it a "pretty sweet deal" nonetheless.

Inside, Nissan has kept the interior of the Leaf fairly conservative as well. Chevrolet's Bolt and Tesla's new Model 3 come to mind, particularly when they are priced within the same price bracket. Companies, from the tech and automobile industries alike, are all making electric vehicles to comply with the worldwide environmental regulations. Still, a 2018 Leaf would be better suited to its onboard driver assistance features, like semi-autonomous driving capability at speeds of up to 100kph. Also, e-pedal will handle e-Pedal handles starting, accelerating, decelerating, and stop. At the same time, Nissan will also emphasize the affordability of the new Leaf. The company is characterizing it as an approximate 40 percent improvement from up to 280 kilometers or 107 miles for Leaf models on sale now. At launch, the Leaf will have a 40kWh pack, good for about 150 miles here in the USA once it gets homologated by the EPA. Also, the video of the test ride of the Nissan Leaf 2018 is out.

The battery in the new Leaf has been upgraded from 30kWh to 40kWh compared with the previous version of the auto, which still isn't enough to catch up with Tesla's Model 3 or the Chevy Bolt, which have bigger batteries and offer better range (220 and 238 miles, respectively).

As far as the styling is concerned the 2018 Leaf comes inspired by the IDS concept vehicle first seen at the 2015 Tokyo motor show, with Nissan's signature V-Motion grille, projector-beam headlights, and the so-trendy "floating" roof over a contrasting C-pillar.

Nissan introduces two new intelligent driving technologies for North American consumers.

He wrote: "ProPilot Assist is sort of a Tesla Autopilot light (at a fraction of the price)".

The reactiveness of e-Pedal helps enhance the pleasure of driving the Leaf. Its dexterity in responding to slinking traffic (including right down to 0 mph) is, though. "The electric power steering's frequent and small corrections automatically sense their presence". Drivers can also use dashboard controls to make adjustments to the parking spot in advance if they feel it is necessary. "Remember this system as the tipping point when semiautonomous driving finally met the masses".
