    Raising the bar for mass market electric vehicles - Meet The New Nissan LEAF

    Nissan unveiled the new Nissan LEAF 2018 in Europe, the next generation of the world's best-selling zero-emissions electric vehicle. Embodying the company’s Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision, this new model has been reinvented to offer greater range, dynamic design, advanced driver assistance technologies and enhanced connectivity. Speaking at the LEAF’s official European launch at Nissan Futures 3.0 in Oslo, Norway, Philippe Saillard, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Nissan Europe said: ‘The new Nissan LEAF is the most advanced and accessible 100% electric vehicle on the planet. It is the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, our vision for the future. This is a car that will make you feel more confident, more excited and more connected than any other mainstream electric vehicle in history. It is simply amazing.’The New Nissan LEAF Nissan Intelligent Power: the e-powertrain which gives yougreater range & enhanced excitement The new Nissan LEAF offers an improved range of 378km (235miles)* on a single charge, allowing drivers to enjoy longer journeys, interconnected by the extended European CHAdeMO Quick Charging network. Meanwhile the new e-powertrain also delivers 110kW of power output and 320Nm of torque, improving acceleration and driver enjoyment. Nissan Intelligent Driving: technology designed to improve driving enjoyment, enhance safety and reduce stress Smarter technologies The new Nissan LEAF is packed with ingenious technology, including ProPILOT advanced driver assistance system for a confident, more comfortable drive. ProPILOT uses the steering, braking and acceleration to assist the driver within single lane, low speed traffic and highway cruisng scenarios.  In slow moving traffic it enables the New LEAF to autonomously slowdown and stop where traffic flow ceases. It will then start to follow the car in front when the flow resumes. Also included is ProPILOT Park for fully autonomous parking. More control, less stress The new Nissan LEAF’s revolutionary e-Pedal technology transforms the way people drive by letting them start, accelerate, decelerate and stop – simply by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator. When the accelerator is fully released, the hydraulic and friction brakes are applied automatically, bringing the car to a complete stop and regenerating the braking energy to recharge the battery. The car holds its position, even on steep up and downhill slopes, until the accelerator is pressed again, taking the stress out of driving like never before. The new LEAF  e-powertrain also delivers 110kW of power output and 320Nm of torque,Nissan Intelligent Integration: linking battery power to social infrastructure The New Nissan LEAF is not just an Electric Vehicle Yet the new Nissan LEAF is also much more than just a 100% electric vehicle. It is a mobile power unit complete with unique bi-directional charging. This means it can give back energy to power the world around it by connecting to homes and offices. It can even return any excess charge to top up and stabilise the local energy grid thanks toNissan’s innovativeVehicle to Grid technology. Stylish outside It’s not just the advanced technologies in the new Nissan LEAF that catch the eye. A sleek profile, sharp, dynamic look and excellent aerodynamics make it aesthetically appealing to European consumers. Anyone familiar with Nissan design characteristics will recognise its signature boomerang-shaped lamps, V-motion flow in the front, flush-surface grille in clear blue and rear bumper’s blue moulding. The New Nissan LEAF exterior …and inside The new Nissan LEAF has a completely redesigned interior, which is focused on the driver and combines the clever use of space with optimum functionality. A front panel in the form of a ‘gliding wing’ and vibrant blue stitching in the seats, dashboard and steering wheel, create a relaxed ambience and a clean quality feel. Meanwhile, the new 7-inch, full-colour (TFT) display highlights key features, including the Safety Shield technology, power gauge and information from the audio and navigation systems. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have also been integrated for enhanced connectivity *(depending on market). The New Nissan LEAF Interior A Unique Launch Edition To celebrate the European unveiling of the new 2nd generation Nissan LEAF, a unique version is on sale from today: the new Nissan LEAF 2.ZERO limited edition. This version is the first model in Europe to be fully equipped with Nissan’s ProPILOT technology for the most confident and comfortable driving experience. Priced at £26,490 including Government Grant, cars will be delivered from the beginning of 2018. 2017 New Nissan LEAF specifications
