When we had asked the former head of Nissan in India about his thoughts on the leaf for India he said, "We will use Nissan Leaf to understand the market but I don't think it's the ultimate solution for India".

The worry for Nissan, however, is that "range anxiety" will dampen excitement over the new release.

Nissan Motor Co. unveiled Wednesday a new Leaf electric vehicle which can drive up to 400 kilometers on a single charge.

Nissan's new Leaf electric vehicle will run about 150 miles (240km) on a single charge, approximately 40 miles more than its previous model, the company claims. The first Leaf features the all-electric, five-door hatchback and it seems like the mass market electric auto.

The remodeled Leaf also gets a 6.6-kilowatt onboard charging system that draws more electricity from a 240-volt charging outlet, allowing the Leaf to go from empty to fully charged in about 7.5 hours, Maragno said.

Let us now have a look at the Nissan Leaf 2018 Prices Specifications, Range, Photos, Design, and Review. In fiscal year 2016, the company sold 5.63 million vehicles globally, generating revenue of 11.72 trillion yen.

However, since it's not officially available in the United Kingdom , you'll need to pay a little over the odds to obtain one. At that time, it had partnered with Indian smartphone makers such as Micromax , Spice and Karbonn to launch Android One.

One of the most important things about the new Nissan Leaf is its inclusion of semi-autonomous technology; Nissan has fitted its new EV with ProPILOT technology, which effectively drives the auto for you.

Nissan Leaf has also been equipped with new driver-assist technologies like ProPilot Assit and e-Pedal technology.

When the Leaf with Australia is yet to be confirmed, but expect it to arrive late 2018. This is an extension of the ProPILOT system which is Nissan's single-lane autonomous driving cruise control.

The next-generation Leaf now has a range of 241 km thanks to new technology that keeps the lithium-ion battery pack the same size but with 33 per cent greater power density. Toyota Motor Corp. has been more aggressive about gas-electric hybrids, exemplified in its hit Prius model, and is expanding to plug-in hybrids, as well as hydrogen-powered vehicles.

"For the day to day, we can cover most of the cases, which means you don't have to worry about the autonomous range when you drive", he said. On price, the 2018 Nissan Leaf will bow at $29,990, significantly less than the Chevrolet Bolt and Tesla Model 3, and $690 less than the outgoing 2017 Leaf. Despite the resultant increase in acceleration and speed, the second-generation Leaf has a higher range than before with a claimed 240km total, which is an improvement of 110km. The pioneering models are expected to drop this October in Japan, but the rest of the world needs to wait till next year.
