About Nissan LEAF

The Nissan LEAF has only reached an critical milestone: 300,000 units have been commercialized worldwide given a launch in 2010. The Nissan EV is a initial zero-emissions, 100% electric automobile constructed for a mass market, and also a best offered in a world.

The new era of a Nissan LEAF was presented during a finish of final year in Tokyo. Its new pattern stands out as good as a union of innovative record that make a Nissan LEAF a benchmark indication of a brand’s prophesy of Intelligent Mobility. Also, a new chronicle offers a operation of 400 km (under a Japanese standard) with energy outlay of 150 hp (110 kW), and a tip speed of 144 km/h.

New technology

The new LEAF adopts ProPILOT unconstrained pushing technology, used during single-lane pushing on a highway. It also offers ProPILOT Park technology, that takes control of steering, acceleration, braking, shift-changing and a parking stop to automatically beam it into a parking spot, including together parking, safely, and with elementary operation.

e-Pedal: shortening motorist stress

This insubordinate record allows drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop by augmenting or dwindling a vigour practical to a accelerator. When a accelerator is entirely released, regenerative and attrition brakes are practical automatically, bringing a automobile to a finish stop. The automobile binds a position, even on ascending slopes, until a accelerator is pulpy again. The reactiveness of a e-Pedal maximizes EV pushing pleasure.

Exterior design: neat conformation and “cool tech attitude”

The new Nissan LEAF’s pattern includes a form that gives it a sharp, energetic look. Along with glorious aerodynamics, a styling – from a neat conformation to a car’s “advanced expression” – evokes a fad of pushing an EV. Nissan pattern facilities a already informed signature boomerang-shaped lamps and V-motion upsurge in a front. The flash-surface grille in transparent blue and a back bumper’s blue frame brand a automobile as a Nissan EV.

Interior design: reward ambience with a clean, relaxed, high-tech feeling

The new Nissan LEAF totally redesigned cabin is focused on a driver, featuring a front row in a form of a “gliding wing.” It combines an glorious use of space with functionality.

The interior pattern creates a loose ambience and reward peculiarity feel, interjection to delicately comparison materials. Vibrant blue stitching in a seats, dashboard and steering circle has been incorporated as a pitch of Nissan’s electric vehicles. The 7-inch, full-color (TFT) arrangement has been redesigned to prominence pivotal features, such as a Safety Shield record energy sign and audio and navigation complement information. Apple CarPlay has also been added.
