All-New Nissan Leaf: How Much Better Than The Original Is It?

After keeping the first generation Leaf in production for seven years, Nissan finally replaced it in 2017 with an entirely new model.

The second-gen Leaf retains its compact size, albeit with a slightly larger footprint, benefits from an entirely new design and underpinnings and is equipped with the brand’s latest technology.

Here we can mention the e-Pedal, which allows the driver to accelerate and decelerate, along with stopping and holding it using only the right pedal, and the ProPilot semi-autonomous driving system.

In addition, it benefits from a host of driving assist features, including Intelligent Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Traffic Sign Recognition and Intelligent Around View Monitor.

The 2018 Nissan Leaf uses a 150 PS (148 HP / 110 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) electric motor and a 40kWh lithium-ion battery pack. It has a claimed range of more than 370 km (230 mlesi), but according to the EPA, it can travel up to 241 km (150 miles) in between charges.

Recharging the battery takes up to 16 hours using a 3 kW plug and 8 hours via a 6 kW plug, whereas the quick charging function allows it to reach 80 percent in just 40 minutes.

Surely, the electric hatchback has lots of cool features that should appeal to customers looking for an all-electric model, but is it from behind the wheel? Answering this question is a review published by CarWow, so click the play button on the video posted below and enjoy.

    I would love to try out that e-pedal my self. This could be a game changer.

    It is absolutely NOT an entirely new model! It shares all of its windows, doors, and interior door panels with the previous Leaf, for starters, not to mention numerous interior components. What are you guys talking about!?
