Nissan Leaf Details Leak Ahead of its Debut

Share

The new pictures of the 2018 Nissan Leaf that made its rounds on Twitter space a couple of days ago seem to establish what Nissan thinks. The Chevrolet Bolt is a bona fide mass-market all-electric competitor.

The gains will also come thanks to new battery pack options for the Leaf that will enable Nissan to sell it with a variety of specs, as Tesla does with its models.

If there is one thing that the 2018 Nissan Leaf really excels in, however, it would be its price. Vehicle sales site Autobytel posted the doc and subsequently pulled it down, but not before Autoblogsnapped screenshots.

That's more than twice the range of the outgoing auto and would cement the Leaf at the top of its class in this respect, beating the latest Renault Zoe by about 90 miles / 144 kilometres.

The cutesy retro styling of the original Leaf was perhaps not to everyone's taste but the new Leaf 2018, which looks to be inspired by the 2017 Micra, promises to much less polarising.

Game of Thrones Stars' Personal Details Leaked As HBO Hack Escalates
Hackers who have leaked scripts and an episode from hit HBO show Game Of Thrones ( GoT ) have reportedly demanded a ransom. The original version, as it was stolen from HBO's servers, was called "Vivianne Contact list", according to that source.

For those willing to dish out an additional $5,000, however, the Tesla Model 3, with its higher performance, range and sleek design, still offers an enormous amount of value.

According to information now removed from the Autobytel website, the 2018 Leaf is expected to start from $29,995 for a base model S, rising to $36,200 for a top-level Leaf SL. All will be confirmed when the Leaf arrives next month. However, the 2018 Leaf's battery capacity is better than the previous model's 30 kWh. Those batteries clock in at 60 kWh and 55 or 75 kWh, respectively.

Its electric motor, which still powers the front wheels, could put out 147 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque - that's a bit sprightlier than the current motor, which has an output of 107 hp and 187 torques.

Vehicle buyers who are more interested in the biggest EV bargain than high-powered performance, however, will be hard pressed to pass up the Leaf.

Nissan is aiming to make the Leaf the segment's most autonomous-capable model, with Pro Pilot Park technology its newest system.
