Nissan Confirms Next-Gen Leaf With ProPilot Autonomous Driving

New Nissan Leaf Tech Puts Chevy Bolt At Disadvantage

At Automobili-D Nissan will show a future technology display featuring a "refreshing" demonstration of LEAF-to-Home possibilities with a smoothie machine powered by Nissan LEAF. Nissan has been talking about the new model for some time now but so far, we have not seen anything yet. Ghosn said the new LEAF is coming in the near future and represents the next chapter of Nissan Intelligent Power.

The second-gen Nissan Leaf has been in the talk process from over a year now, however, it is just now, at CES 2017, that the auto has been formally affirmed.

The CEO also disclosed that the 2018 Leaf will be fitted with the ProPILOT technology which allows the vehicle to drive partly autonomous on one-lane highways.

Mr. Ghosn said that the next-gen Nissan Leaf will accompany ProPILOT innovation for self-ruling driving on single-path roadways.

In fact, they did not even talk about the new range of the Leaf would be able to offer leaving many fans feeling anxious. Also, it is believed that the new Leaf's design will be heavily inspired by the Nissan IDS concept from the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.

Another new information to come out of the event is that the company is now calling it "the new LEAF" - meaning that it's still going to be a LEAF and not a new vehicle program like some speculated. The updated Leaf would proceed with an air-cooled battery pack, as changes in cell science have "altogether" decreased worries over battery strength.
