Nissan turn over a new Leaf

LEAF 2nd edition 2

Japanese car giants Nissan have revealed they are turning over a new Leaf.

The model is a revamped version of the one built here in Sunderland, which is the world's best selling all-electric car.

It will have a quicker charge and will be able to travel 150 miles on a single top up, about 40 more than the earlier model.

It is expected to be on sale in Japan in October for around 22 thousand pounds.

Here is how it looks.

Nissan today revealed the world’s most advanced mass-market electric vehicle (EV) and icon of the company’s Intelligent Mobility vision.

All electric, and packed with 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 new Nissan LEAF will be on sale in Europe from January 2018.

“The new Nissan LEAF drives Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which is the core brand strategy for Nissan’s future,” said Hiroto Saikawa, president and chief executive officer of Nissan. “The new Nissan LEAF, with its improved autonomy range, combined with the evolution of autonomous drive technology, such as ProPILOT Park and the simple operation of the e-Pedal, strengthens Nissan’s EV leadership, as well as the expansion of EVs globally. It also has the core strengths that will be embodied by future Nissan models.”

LEAF 2nd edition

Nissan Intelligent Mobility is the company’s blueprint to redefine the future of driving and looks to progress the role of the car to be more than simply a mode of transport. Nissan Intelligent Mobility is defined by how the car is driven, how it is powered and how it integrates into society.

The new Nissan LEAF is the company’s on-road embodiment of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, with its early-stage of ProPILOT technologies, advanced all-electric powertrain and unique ability to connect to and power the buildings it plugs in to.

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.

Nissan LEAF built in Sunderland

The new Nissan LEAF replaces the first-generation model, built here on Wearside, 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.

As yet Nissan have not announced where the New LEAF will be produced and details for the model are expected to be revealed soon.
