The new e-powertrain boosts acceleration and excitement. ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal driver assistance technologies make driving more enjoyable, helping enhance safety and reduce stress. Drivers of the new LEAF will feel more confident, excited and connected, while contributing to a sustainable smart-mobility society.
The 2018 LEAF offers a range of 150 miles2, allowing drivers to enjoy longer journeys than the previous-generation vehicle. The new e-powertrain is rated at 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque, providing improved acceleration and driver enjoyment.
The new Nissan LEAF's design includes a low, sleek profile that gives it a sharp, dynamic look. Along with excellent aerodynamics, the styling – from the sleek silhouette to the car's "advanced expression" – evokes the exhilaration of driving an EV.
Familiar Nissan design features include the signature boomerang-shaped lamps and V-Motion flow in the front. The flush-surface grille in clear blue and the rear bumper's blue molding emphasize its identity as a Nissan EV.
The LEAF's completely redesigned cabin is focused on the driver, featuring a front panel in the form of a "gliding wing." It combines an excellent use of space with functionality.
The interior design creates a relaxed ambience and premium quality feel, due to the carefully selected materials. Vibrant blue stitching in the seats, instrument panel and steering wheel has been incorporated as a symbol of Nissan's electric vehicles. The 7-inch, full-color TFT display has been redesigned for easier comprehension of key features – such as the Safety Shield technology, power gauge and audio and navigation system information. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have also been added.
