Nissan Expects 2018 Leaf to Turnover New Buyers

The Leaf is the world's bestselling electric car

Nissan also announced, they will offer a higher power, longer range version at a higher price in model year 2019.

The new Nissan Leaf will go on sale on 2 October in Japan. Nissan is a global full-line vehicle manufacturer that sells more than 60 models under the Nissan, INFINITI and Datsun brands. There's Nissan's driver assist system, called ProPILOT Assist, which combines adaptive cruise control and lane keeping, plus a whole raft of other safety systems to warn of errant pedestrians or vehicles in various blind spots.

The worry for Nissan, however, is that "range anxiety" will dampen excitement over the new release.

On Tuesday, North Korea provoked worldwide alarm after it fired a mid-range missile over the Japanese island of Hokkaido. Ren Guoqiang told reporters that all parties should exercise restraint and avoid words and actions that escalate tension.

Nissan also plans to stress that the new Leaf is fun to drive rather than emphasizing the car's green credentials as a zero-emission vehicle, which helped lift the reputation of the first-gen Leaf.

And even though the driving range offered by the next-generation Nissan Leaf is very much similar to what the Tesla Model 3 is offering, price could be a factor which gives the former a competitive edge over the latter. The Tesla Model3 runs around 220 miles on a single charge with starting price of 35000.

The mass market for electric cars is yet to reach a turning point, with charging infrastructure, range and mileage continuing to weigh on the minds of consumers. "It also has core strengths that will be embodied by future Nissan models", according to Hiroto Saikawa, president and CEO of Nissan.

Known as the "e-pedal", the Japanese brand claimed it will "transform the way we drive", adding that the technology is the world's first one-pedal operation that allows motorists to bring the auto to a stop and resume driving instantly.

One of the most important things about the new Nissan Leaf is its inclusion of semi-autonomous technology; Nissan has fitted its new EV with ProPILOT technology, which effectively drives the vehicle for you. However, the current Leaf comes in several different trim levels, so you can expect the new Leaf to cost anything from £22,000 to £30,000 depending on the model you want.

We're not sure how much the new Nissan Leaf will cost in the United Kingdom, but we can take a guess based on other released prices.

Today's match will surely affect the Sri Lanks if they Loses or If they Win the game, they need to crack 5th Series also. The veteran pacer Lasith Malinga will be leading the team Sri Lanka in the remaining matches will be looking forward.

India's recently announced plans of going all electric by 2030, and that has been the fuel for many a heated discussion about which electric vehicle will drive India's future. Power is increased by 38 per cent compared with the outgoing model, to 110kW, while torque is up by 26 per cent to 320Nm. Nissan says this capability "significantly reduces stress when driving on the highway in flowing and heavy traffic" conditions.
