2018 Nissan Leaf

The all-new 2018 Nissan Leaf is here, and it’s beautiful. Redesigned for greater range and power, it still remains the #1 affordable electric car in the world. This year, the list of new technologies is staggering. But it is all to improve the driver’s overall experience. Keep reading for more information!

Increased Range & Power

This begins with the range: the 2018 Nissan Leaf tops out at 150 miles! This is about 30 miles more than last year’s model. Also improved from last year is the horsepower–now at 147, a 38% increase and the torque at 236 lb/ft, which is a 26% increase. For those who (like me) need that put simply: the acceleration will feel smoother and more agile. The battery has also improved; without changing in size, it houses 67% more energy–to keep you on the road longer.

Redefined Style

Beyond the percentages, though, is redefined style. The exterior has been improved for both aerodynamics as well as appeal. It reflects the forward-progress attitude that Nissan has towards always improving this popular vehicle. Additionally, the signature V-Motion grille present on almost every vehicle in the Nissan lineup has been added this year to the leaf, showing a strong brand-alliance. This classic look is updated for the Leaf with the signature blue accent pattern (seen below).2018 Nissan Leaf

Smart Interior

On the inside, the “cool tech attitude” that the exterior sculpts comes alive. From the 7-inch full color display housing Navigation, Apple/Android connectivity, and a rear-view camera, to the smart gauges in the driver’s display taking the guesswork out of range–the Leaf has all the technology a driver needs. But Nissan didn’t stop there; they gave the 2018 Nissan Leaf the most intelligent driving features available.

The Leaf offers ProPilot Assist, which is a fairly new product that can help drivers stay in their lane, maintain an appropriate distance between cars, keep the vehicle centered in the lane, and stay moving or stopped as traffic dictates. In addition, standard on all trim levels is the e-Pedal. This is one pedal by which the driver can accelerate, brake, and stop. Simply release the pedal, and the Leaf will come to a complete stop without any need to press the pedal again. In rougher traffic, however, the traditional brake-only pedal is still available for drivers to use.
