Nissan Leaf Pros & Cons

The 2018 Nissan Leaf comes with an increase in range (from 107 to 150 miles), and an upgraded battery (from 30 to 40 kWh).  The electric motor has had a boost (from 80 to 110 kW).

The exterior design of the vehicle has been upgraded with a completely new front faschia.

Driver Assistance Features

ProPilot Assist will provide some semi-autonomy:

  • Following the car ahead at a preset distance.
  • Keep the car centered in its lane.
  • Comes to a complete stop where necessary.

This level of autonomy is “hands-on” – if the vehicle does not detect hands on the the wheel, it will give a series of alerts to the driver.

Intelligent warnings – such as identifying a potential oncoming collision, alerting potential blind spots, auto-braking when reversing into an object

The Leaf also features the e-Pedal – reducing the foot pedals to effectively single pedal. There is still a brake pedal for emergency braking.

Three trims are available, the base model – Nissan Leaf S, along with the SV and SL.

Leaf SV (+2,500)

17″ aluminum-alloy wheels, quick charge port, intelligent cruise control, Apple Carplay / Android Auto.

Leaf SL (+6,200)

All SV features plus: Bose audio, leather seats, LED headlights, Intelligent Around View Monitor, Blind Spot Warning.

Nissan Leaf – Long Range

Nissan intend to bring a longer range version of the LEAF to market in 2018 – with a larger battery pack.
