2018 Nissan Leaf Overview


Intelligent Power Delivery

Instant torque is what you'll feel once behind the wheel of the all-new Nissan Leaf. The 100% electric motor is to thank for this along with what Nissan is calling a battery with the most advanced technology in the world, a bold statement. "intense performance" that will throw you back in your seat is what Nissan has reported, even lining it up next to a Nismo GT-R to clearly send the message. Dynamic Handling complements its power delivery helping to create an EV that's actually fun in the twists and turns. For practicality and regular everyday usability is the E-Pedal (one pedal) Driving which has become a standard feature in the EV world so far.

FEEL THE RUSH OF 100% ELECTRIC DRIVING
It’s an experience unlike any other, thanks to the 100% electric motor and some of the most advanced battery technology in the world. The first time you accelerate and feel its 100% instant torque will push you into the back of your seat. You'll wonder how such intense performance can come from a car so amazingly quiet. And when you realize that there is no gas or tailpipe emissions, your Nissan LEAF will turn your everyday drive into something truly extraordinary.

E-PEDAL DRIVING
Imagine being able to drive your Nissan LEAF with only one pedal. Just press down for an instant rush and ease off to slow down – giving you the same pure, direct response for accelerating and braking. It’s one smooth motion, and a whole lot of fun. You can even hold the vehicle on a hill without ever touching the brake. And, of course, your brake pedal is still there so you can brake on demand.

DYNAMIC HANDLING WITH LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY
The Nissan LEAF is just as much fun through the twists and turns. The floor-mounted battery pack creates a low center of gravity for a great ride and smooth handling, helping the Nissan LEAF corner with minimal body roll.

I've seen a lot of praise for the Pro Pilot assist technology that's found in the Leaf. A lot of publications have noted that its actually a better system than what's found on much more expensive alternatives, and it's standard on all models.
