Nissan has always been on the forefront of new and exciting technology, which is why when it comes to building an electric car, Nissan is right in the mix. The Nissan Leaf, first introduced in 2010, is one of the most popular electric cars on the market. This all-electric Hatchback offered a unique look and a performance output that rivaled anything in its class.
In 2018, Nissan wants to introduce you to the second generation of the Nissan Leaf.
The second generation of the Nissan Leaf is getting a few upgrades and a few major changes to its design. First up the Leaf is getting new battery packs, with a new way to approach power flow and temperature. You’ll have three choices of types and sizes of packs, though what the packs offer has yet to be fully revealed. An upgrade to the battery package means longer driving range. Physically, the 2018 Leaf is getting rid of the vertical taillights, which is one of the more prominent features of the Leaf.
What’s the same?
While most if the changes we know as of now are mainly structural, it does keep some of the things Leaf fans loved from past models. It keeps that overall sculpted shape, the floating roof, and the V-Motion grille. These changes give the Leaf more mass-appeal than it had before. It looks less alien than first generation models. It looks and feels like part of the Nissan family. The electric engine will provide a similar level of power, around 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. It remains a front-wheel-drive vehicle, so there will be familiarity there as well.
