The Nissan Leaf is a compact five-door hatchback electric car manufactured by Nissan and introduced in Japan and the United States in December 2010, followed by various European countries and Canada in 2011. More than 300,000 Leafs have been sold worldwide through January 2018, making the Leaf the world's all-time best-selling highway-capable electric car in history. On 2 October 2017, for the 2018 model year, Nissan launched the new generation Leaf with a number of significant improvements.
Nissan LEAF helps makes everything feel more exciting. From 40% more range than the previous generation, to a boost in power that quickly gets you moving, to an easy way to charge, you’ll always look forward to the next exhilarating drive.
From every angle, the Nissan LEAF is one striking vehicle. Sleek lines, a unique grille, and a distinctive “floating” roof design are just a few of the reasons why the Nissan LEAF stands apart on the road.
An advanced aerodynamic design allows the Nissan LEAF to slice, instead of smash through the air, meaning you not only have an unbelievably quiet ride, but an impressively efficient one.
Iconic blue accents and plush seats greet you as you slip inside the spacious cabin. Stretch out and relax, with room for 5 and plenty of legroom. The driver-centric design and intuitive layout entice you to go for a drive, while an array of comfort and convenience features ensure every moment behind the wheel is exceptionally relaxing.
Accelerate, brake and come to a complete stop all with one pedal. The effortless e-Pedal is all you need in the New Nissan LEAF. It's simple, fun and gives you more control too.
Nissan ProPILOT can keep you centred, cover blind spots, speed up, slow down and bring you to a halt in traffic jams.
ProPILOT Park can do the hard work for you. No hands, no feet - just press the button and sit back and enjoy the view. Parking is a spectator sport in the New Nissan LEAF.
The New Nissan LEAF has received the maximum five stars from the European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP).
This result can be attributed to the new safety features found on the New Nissan LEAF. These include advanced driver assistance systems that use technologies such as camera and radar providing benefits like pedestrian recognition. These technologies form the basis of Nissan’s acclaimed ProPILOT system for safer, more confident driving.
