The official launch of the 2018 Nissan Leaf model is scheduled for September 6th in Tokyo. Immediately after Tokyo, Nissan will present the new generation Leaf model to the European Audience at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is a complete redesign of the vehicle, with very interesting new management systems, and new design.
Even before his official promotion, the 2018 Nissan Leaf was seen several times in the testing phase. Based on these photos of the camouflaged 2018 Leaf redesign, we could conclude what are the changes of the new generation.
The new design is actually something we could see in 2015. Then Nissan introduced the IDS Concept, whose external design was revived through the new Leaf. The new Leaf’s sketch is available on the internet from time to time. New aerodynamic lines, new look and shape of front and rear light groups.
2018 Nissan Leaf Changes
2018 Nissan Leaf has a significantly improved interior. But the complete change is creating new management systems. Pro Pilot Park is an advanced parking system. The Pre-Pilot system of semi-automatic steering, provides the driver with partial assistance in the form of autonomous management. The driver, however, does not have to operate the vehicle only on a highway at a certain speed.
As for the novelties in the form of a pedal, it will have its opponents, rest assured. The e-Pedal technology is introduced in control via a single pedal. I gas and the brake will now use the same pedal. At the push of the gas pedal encoder and its release gas will be reduced and will engage the brakes.
It is completely realistic expectations that the successor to the current Leaf 2017 gets a stronger engine. 2018 Leaf battery will run from 40 kW and 60 kW, with an autonomy of 165 miles, respectively 200 miles. The current model is powered by electric power from 30 kW batteries with a 107-mile autonomy. From now on, the company has had excellent sales results for the Leaf model. The current 2017 Nissan Leaf has been sold in 270,000 copies so far.
