  • Nissan unveils new LEAF complete with e-Pedal and improved range

Yutaka Sanada, Head of Asia and Oceania for Nissan, explained that even though the new electric hatch won't sell in big numbers without incentives it was important for the brand to have the Leaf in Australian showrooms. This simplifying solution from Nissan means drivers can use just a single pedal for acceleration, braking and stopping (once the driver has become accustomed to it, of course).

Nissan is planning to pull out the real show-stopper in late 2018.

The new Leaf can travel up to 235 miles between charges under European driving conditions and can be fully charged in 40 minutes with fast chargers, although electric cars typically run 20-25% shorter distances under real-world driving conditions. Keep in mind that the range could fall when using United States fuel economy standards. "However, Nissan will face more competition as there are other quite similar new vehicles on the market", he added. The design of the Nissan Leaf is a departure from the previous generation auto and is more in line with contemporary vehicle designs.

The new Leaf, like the first-generation vehicle it replaces, will be built for the North American market at Nissan's manufacturing complex in Smyrna, TN, along with the battery pack powering it.

In Japan, it starts at 3.15 million yen ($29,000) with the most expensive version costing 3.99 million yen ($37,000).

This is the new Nissan Leaf, which will go on sale in the United Kingdom in early 2018. However, the 2018 LEAF does employ high-tech driver-assist features, such as ProPilot Assist, Nissan's lane-centering intelligent cruise control.

Still, in a world void of affordable performance-oriented electric cars, a Leaf Nismo may be a welcome addition and a splash of excitement to the electric vehicle realm.

Cabin noise has been reduced thanks to less wind drag, aerodynamic changes and a quieter electric motor.

With the introduction of the 2018 model, the automaker said it aims to double (or even triple) its annual sales of the Nissan LEAF. "But during the launch period of the second generation Leaf, it won't be available and those months are when its image and reputation are established". The new Leaf is scheduled to be on display Saturday, Sept. 16 at the National Drive Electric Week event at De Anza Community College in Cupertino. And if nothing else, it's a real upgrade for existing Leaf owners at a price that should prove tempting to many.

With an autonomy announced of 241 km and a base price of $ 35 998$, the Leaf 2018 will be eligible for a credit government of$ 8,000 in Quebec because of the government program, Drive electric.

The powertrain options would include the standard 40kWh batteries as the new Leaf will be delivering 147bhp and 320Nm with a range of 400kilometres.
