The new Nissan LEAF is the next generation of the world's best-selling zero-emissions electric vehicle. More than 283,000 customers have chosen the first-generation LEAF since it went on sale in 2010 – and now this all-new model offers even greater range, improved dynamic design, class leading advanced driver assistance technologies and enhanced connectivity.
With an overall length of 4.49m, width of 1.79m, height of 1.54m and a wheelbase of 2.70m, the new Nissan LEAF also features a sleek profile, sharp, dynamic look with excellent aerodynamics, and a coefficient of drag (Cd) of 0.28.
The Nissan LEAF has a completely redesigned interior, which is focused on the driver and combines a clever use of space with optimum functionality. The ‘gliding wing’ design features vibrant blue stitching in the seats, dashboard and steering wheel, creating a relaxed ambience and high-quality feel. A 435-litre boot and foldable 60/40 split rear seat offers impressive storage options and maximum utility, making the new Nissan LEAF a perfect family car. Maximum luggage capacity with folded seats is 1,176 litres.
The new Nissan LEAF’s improved 7 inch, full-colour (TFT) display highlights key features, including information from the audio and navigation systems.
The Nissan LEAF offers drivers complete confidence when it comes to safety. Standard features from entry grade include six airbags (front, side and curtain), ISOFIX hook, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), and Hill Start Assist (HSA). Traffic Sign Recognition and Blind Spot Warning are also standard from Visia grade, as is Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian and cyclist Recognition.
Advanced safety technology systems such as Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are also part of new Nissan LEAFs standard equipment.
The Nissan LEAF is packed with Intelligent Mobility innovative technology, including ProPILOT driver assistance for a safer, more comfortable drive and ProPILOT Park, for fully autonomous parking at the touch of a button.
The e-powertrain in the new Nissan LEAF delivers 110kW of power (150 HP) and 320Nm of torque, improving acceleration to 7.9s from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph), at the top of c-segment performance. The new Nissan LEAF has a range of 378 km /235 miles NEDC (pending final homologation). Additionally the New Nissan LEAF is the first EV to undergo WLTP*, allowing customers to drive up to 415 km / 258 miles in city conditions on a single charge. This test reflects real life situations more accurately. This means drivers can enjoy longer journeys, interconnected by the extended European CHAdeMO Quick-Charging network.
Charging time from alert to 80% (quick charging – 50kw) takes 40 to 60 minutes*, while it’s around 7.5 hours from alert to 100% with a 7Kw Wallbox.
In the summer of 2019 Nissan introduced the range-topping LEAF e+ (image 8), featuring advanced Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology. It will now deliver 217PS of performance and up to 239 miles on a single battery charge utilising the newly-developed 62kWh battery pack. This offers 55% more capacity and approximately 25% improvement in energy density while retaining a similar shape and size to the 40kWh LEAF battery pack.
