If that's not enough, Nissan says it will introduce a high-power version with extra battery capacity at the end of 2018. A 40-kilowatt lithium-ion battery is fitted to the base model. The pioneering models are expected to drop this October in Japan, but the rest of the world needs to wait till next year. While that's a sizable upgrade from the current Leaf's 107-mile range, it's well short of the vehicles seen as its principal rivals: The Model 3 will come with 220 miles of range in its most affordable version, while the Bolt sports a 238-mile range rating. In addition to the longer driving range, the 2018 Leaf also has more power with 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft. of torque. It became the world's best-selling, all-battery vehicle, with over 280,000 units sold. There are no 0 to 60 miles per hour figures yet, but it is expected to clock quite decent numbers given electric cars provide solid performance on that front.
Nissan wanted to cost their revamped model which has the mainstream makeover, autonomous capability under $30,000.
In addition to these basic colours, a new colour, Spring Light Green, will be available. This vehicle features the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
And, because Nissan will continue to evolve the battery pack technology, that range is expect to improve significantly over the life of the second-generation Leaf. This is an extension of the ProPILOT system which is Nissan's single-lane autonomous driving cruise control. The Leafwill get level-2 autonomous driving abilities which include lane driving and maintaining distances with the Vehicle in front of it.
There's also ProPilot Park which uses a quartet of HD cameras and a dozen ultrasonic sensors to park for you - parallel or perpendicular and even in angled bays - forwards or backwards.
Known as the "e-pedal", the Japanese brand claimed it will "transform the way we drive", adding that the technology is the world's first one-pedal operation that allows motorists to bring the vehicle to a stop and resume driving instantly.
Autocar adds that it's likely the NISMO variant won't be offered until the longer range (60-kWh) LEAF E-Plus launches in 2019. It lets drivers start, accelerate, decelerate and stop by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator. Releasing the accelerator will bring the vehicle to a complete stop. Still, all Leafs are also equipped with a traditional brake pedal.
In addition to these features, there will also be the usual array of electronic driver aids including a self-parking feature.
