The 2018 Nissan Leaf has been unveiled, and it now comes with a number of key improvements. First and foremost is the range of driving per charge cycle, which has now been upgraded to 150 miles (242km approx.) in US driving conditions. This brings the Leaf, presently the most popular electric vehicle ever in terms of sales figures, up to a more functional driving range. The previous generation 2017 Nissan Leaf boasted mileage of 107 miles (173km approx.), which was significantly lower than what its competition offered.
The 2018 Nissan Leaf now includes a 6.6kW charging system that can fully charge the car in 7.5 hours. Power delivery has also been increased, with the Leaf now producing 147bhp. Nissan is also working on a Leaf variant with over 200 miles (364km approx.) in range, but that will not hit the market right away, as development of viable, affordable and high capacity batteries take some time. The new Leaf is also quite well equipped, with elements like one-pedal driving, autonomous emergency braking, lane keeping assistance and more being a part of the Leaf.
