The 2018 Nissan Leaf
The Nissan Leaf has actually been in production since 2010 and over 260,000 have been sold worldwide making it the worlds most popular Electric Vehicle. Unfortunately in Australia it was never really supported but that is about to change.
The all new Nissan Leaf was recently and the company is intent on reclaiming its status as an electric car pioneer and innovator. Nissan Australia managing director and CEO Richard Emery has confirmed “We’ll certainly be active with Leaf next year.”
The new Nissan Leaf has some very interesting features including an e-Pedal function. This means that acceleration is done by pressing the pedal, deceleration by lifting off the pedal gently and if you lift off the pedal completely the car comes to a complete stop.
The 2018 Nissan Leaf also boasts a game changing range of 400kms. It also has a quick charging time from low level alert to 80% in just 40minutes. Normal full charging takes 8 hours (6 kW).
