New Nissan Leaf to be produced at Sunderland

Posted September 08, 2017

However, Nissan believes that the Leaf of 2018 will become the first auto in the world that we can really drive it without the brake pedal.

Nissan Australia sold 635 examples of the first generation Leaf over its six years on sale.

What's more game-changing, though, is the way that Nissan in-part achieves this range: the e-Pedal.

For customers who want more excitement and performance, Nissan will also offer a higher power, longer range version at a higher price in model year 2019. It also adopts a number of new technologies for the brand, including ProPilot autonomous driving functionality.

"It's totally logical for us, given the strong EV experience we've had, to see this technology one day will be carried to a crossover", he added, while declining to elaborate on specific timing or models.

The new Leaf can travel up to 235 miles between charges under European driving conditions and can be fully charged in 40 minutes with fast chargers, although electric cars typically run 20-25% shorter distances under real-world driving conditions.

Washington rejects the proposal; Putin insisted it "offers a genuine way to defuse the tensions and a step-by-step settlement". The THAAD systems will be deployed on Thursday at a new base in Seongju, 300 kilometers (186 miles) from Seoul.

The 200-mile mark is considered by many industry experts as the range needed to ease driver fears that they'll run out of juice before ending their trips in the United States, but even then range is still the biggest obstacle to widespread adoption of electric cars. The base model S comes standard with automatic emergency braking, and more expensive model lines have an optional semi-autonomous driving feature that keeps the vehicle centered in its lane and stops it from hitting objects in front of it. While offering less range than those models, most buyers can expect to pay several thousands of dollars less for a LEAF than for a Bolt or Tesla Model 3. "It takes everything we've learned from our loyal first-generation LEAF owners to the next level".

Nissan is offering four color options combined with black colored roof on the Nissan Leaf vehicle.

Nissan was to roll out the new Leaf at a press conference Tuesday night in Las Vegas and later in Tokyo. It is however not as advanced as the systems offered on the Model 3 and Bolt EV. Nissan says the "conventional brake pedal must still be used in aggressive braking situations", and while the e-Pedal is standard with all Leafs, it can be switched off if desired. But it also can steer as needed to keep the Leaf in its lane, as long as the highway has visible lane markers.
