NISSAN has released yet more details of the forthcoming Leaf 2018 which will debut next month.
Nissan Leaf 2018 is just a few weeks away from being revealed.
Ahead of its September 6th debut there has been a lot of anticipation about the new EV.
Nissan has claimed that the new Leaf will be packed with their most advanced technologies and will ‘raise the bar’ for the electric vehicle market.
The zero-emissions vehicle has been the most popular EV in the UK for a number of years but with advancements in the market segment and more competition, the new car needs to deliver on more than style and technology.
Range anxiety is still the biggest problem for many would-be EV drivers as they don’t believe that an electric car can support their lifestyle.
Previous generation Leaf’s have not breached the 200 mile range and with the 24kW battery achieving a theoretical range of 124 miles of charge and the 30kW delivers 155 miles.
With the Model 3 producing around 220 miles with its standard battery and 310 miles with the long range battery pack then Nissan will need to produce a car with range closer to the 200 mark to compete.
In addition to this, with the lower price point they will be aiming to draw some potential customers away from Tesla.
From initial reports about the car’s specs and leaked pictures we know that the it sports a more conventional exterior design.
It looks heavily influenced by the new Nissan Micra which was unveiled earlier this year.
