Next-Gen Nissan Leaf: It's The Final Countdown

2018 Nissan LEAF Dynamic Design teased with new photo of Nissan's new electric bedrock

The new pictures of the 2018 Nissan Leaf that made its rounds on Twitter space a couple of days ago seem to establish what Nissan thinks.

Nissan Leaf in pictures Wed, January 4, 2017 Nissan Leaf was the first commercially available all-electric auto. Over the past few months, Nissan has been gradually teasing images and features of the vehicle, most recently the "e-Pedal" feature and aerodynamic performance. While the leaks have already been taken down as of writing, Autoblog was able to save copies of the 2018 Leaf's alleged specs through screenshots. We'll have to wait for actual confirmation on the car's range before we decide just how competitive the new Leaf will be. Nevertheless, they do provide some interesting insights on the features and capabilities of the upcoming EV.

The 2018 Leaf's projected 40 kWh battery capacity is a step up from the current model's 30 kWh unit, but it's still smaller than those of the Bolt or the Model 3. Interestingly, the 2018 Nissan Leaf SL is also noted in the leaked spec sheet with self-driving features, called the ProPilot Assist system. The cheapest 2018 Leaf S will apparently be $29,990, according to the document, and there'll be a Leaf SV from $32,490.

Design appears to be inspired by the Micra; will come with Nissan's Pro Pilot semi-autonomous tech. Tesla hasn't confirmed the numbers for the Model 3 as yet but previous reports suggest that it will tout 258 horsepower.

Based on these leaks, the Leaf 2018 looks set to have a more conventional mass-market style, which will put it in line with equivalent petrol and diesel variants.

The Model 3, however, comes with a significantly larger battery pack.

That means the 2018 Leaf will likely have a shorter range per charge - probably around 150 to 160 miles - than the Bolt's 238 miles or the Model 3's 220 or 310 mile estimates. The premium Model 3 would be equipped with a 75kWh battery unit, which would give the vehicle approximately 310 miles of range.
