The new Nissan LEAF will feature improved aerodynamic design that makes it even more efficient, allowing drivers to travel farther on a single charge. The redesigned next-generation Nissan LEAF is lower to the ground, helping it realize zero lift for better stability at high speeds. Other new design features significantly stabilize the car when hit by strong crosswinds. Inspired by airplane wings, Nissan engineers recreated the ideal shape for the new LEAF, enabling a symmetric air flow that helps it slice through the air for a smoother, more efficient journey. Nissan established itself as a pioneer in the EV movement by launching the LEAF, the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle. The Nissan LEAF is the world’s best-selling electric vehicle with more than 277,000 units sold.
Aerodynamic Design – It’s amazing when nothing holds you back:
Aerodynamics is key to how efficiently an electric car moves. Less drag and better stability enable the vehicle to drive longer distances before having to recharge.
e-Pedal Technology – Simple things can be amazing:
Nissan announced that the widely anticipated new Nissan LEAF will come with e-Pedal, a revolutionary technology that transforms the way we drive.With the flip of a switch, the technology turns your accelerator into an e-Pedal, allowing drivers to accelerate, decelerate and stop using just the e-Pedal. e-Pedal technology is the world’s first one-pedal operation that allows drivers to bring the car to a complete stop even on hills, stay in position, and resume driving instantly. Drivers can cover 90% of their driving needs with the e-Pedal, making the process of driving more exciting. In heavy traffic and during city commutes, drivers will greatly reduce the need to shift from one pedal to the other, making your drive simpler and more engaging.
The e-Pedal technology represents another key milestone in Nissan’s ongoing commitment to bring accessible, advanced driver assistance technologies to the mainstream. Set to make driving safer and more enjoyable, the development of these technologies is part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society. By launching the Nissan LEAF, the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle, Nissan established itself as the pioneer in the EV movement.
ProPILOT Technology – Imagine always fitting in:
The widely anticipated new Nissan LEAF will feature state-of-the-art ProPILOT technology, Nissan’s autonomous drive technology that reduces the hassle of stop-and-go highway driving. The technology helps drivers park by automatically guiding the car into a parking spot. ProPILOT supports drivers by helping control acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane driving on the highway. The technology is currently available in the Nissan Serena and was recently introduced on the Nissan X-Trail in Japan. In the coming years, Nissan’s ProPILOT technology will offer increasing levels of autonomy, with the system eventually able to navigate city intersections.
This technology represents another milestone in Nissan’s ongoing commitment to bringing accessible, advanced driver assistance technologies to mainstream vehicles. Set to make driving safer and more enjoyable, the development of ProPILOT technologies is part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society.
