New Nissan LEAF 30 kWh is revealed
17th February 2016
As the new Nissan LEAF 30kWh goes on sale across Europe - with improved range and enhanced features - Nissan has released a stunning short film revealing the car from a block of ice in breathtaking Norefjell, Norway.
Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle now delivers up to155 miles* of driving range on a single charge, 25 percent further than before, and comes with the latest evolution of the NissanConnect EV infotainment system on Acenta and Tekna trims. This includes improvements to the remote defrost feature, superior functionality and greater connectivity.
The film begins with a silhouette of the LEAF cocooned in ice, set against the breath-taking Scandes Mountains. At 65mm thick, the ice proceeds to melt away, gradually revealing the new Nissan LEAF 30kWh in all its glory.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles, Nissan Europe: “The new Nissan LEAF 30kWh is a great example of Nissan’s pioneering and innovative spirit. We constantly strive to push the boundaries of what is possible with zero emission technology – going further so our customers can go further.”
The Nissan LEAF was frozen into its icy blanket by Norwegian ice specialist, MR. ICEMAN AS. Mr Jack Stensland, CEO, said: “I have never frozen an electric car before, but it sounded like an interesting challenge, and I think the end result is stunning.”
The film also highlights the reliability and durability of the new Nissan LEAF 30 kWh, which undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it is capable of withstanding even the most challenging driving conditions. For customers in truly testing conditions like those in Norefjell, Nissan also offers a specially engineered Nordic Pack which includes a battery heater to counter the effects of the extreme low temperature.
