This cannot be helped as Nissan promises three great things with the next Leaf – autonomous ability, extreme driving range and affordability. The Leaf will be equipped with Nissan’s autonomous system called ProPilot. The system is tipped by Nissan to be better than Autopilot and this can certainly take the attention away from the Model 3.
Moving on to driving range, Nissan has teased on multiple trims with at least 280 miles to offer. Hence, we can look forward to see the Leaf coming out with more than 300 miles to offer.
From what Nissan has released so-far, we do know that the Leaf will get a completely redesigned front fascia given the new headlights and grill teasers, both of which were said to be inspired by the IDS concept. From the spied photos, the rear meanwhile will feature sleeker headlights. Inside Nissan has also given us a glimpse of the digital cluster mated with a mechanical speedo. Apart from those details, nothing is official yet unless Nissan decides to reveal more features of the upcoming EV.
Powering the all-new Leaf is said to be a 60kWh battery pack, which supposedly allows it to have an improved range of 547 km on a single charge. It is also said to be the first Nissan to be equipped with autonomous driving capabilities by adopting Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist driver-assistance technology. The technology allows the car to drive itself during single-lane driving.
