The 2018 Nissan Leaf has already opened on a positive note with multiple teasers and concept models.
When it comes to creating a Leaf, the automobile brand has lots of references from the previous models
Yet, Nissan was audacious enough to take the plunge and introduce some striking new design changes. One of them is the new taillight which is sporty, sleek and looks sharp. If you haven’t heard it yet, the new Leaf is an electric car which further paves way for all-electric models to become the norm. Every year, Nissan along with other manufacturers had been working hard to increase the mile range of the cars and the trend continues with this one as well.
A couple of teaser images had been launched in the past and the new one isn’t much different from those. From a buyer perspective, the car looks compact and stylish to meet their requirements. The full unveiling event will take place on 6th September which is just weeks to go. The automobile brand has rolled out a couple of video teasers which shows the new front grille, the taillight, the bumper design and the silhouette of the car.
Apart from being an all-electric model, the 2018 Nissan Leaf promotes semi-autonomous driving and is equipped with ProPilot autonomous parking. Amateur drivers and newbies who still find it difficult to find a spot in tight parking spaces would definitely love the setup. Based on the new aero package used in the car, the Leaf is capable of covering more miles on a single charge. The exterior changes allow the car to use less battery while drifting at high speeds and doesn’t impact with strong crosswinds.
In the newest set of images, it is visible that the car has muscular shoulder lines with black roof contrasts. The model will also bring the e-Pedal feature, a new technological upgrade which allows the driver to use only the accelerator to keep driving the car. The controls are toggled on or off using a switch. When switched on, it simplifies driving by allowing the driver to complete majority of the actions using the accelerator and no other pedals are required for at least 90% of the time, according to Nissan.
The 2018 Nissan Leaf is just days to go and when the full launch takes place, it would be much easier to conclude whether it poses a direct competition to the Tesla Model 3 in terms of mile range and performance.
