NISSAN has unveiled the new Nissan LEAF 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 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.
It’s 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.
Yet the new Nissan LEAF is also much more than just a 100 per cent 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.
