Nissan launches longer-range electric vehicle

Nissan launches longer-range electric vehicle Nissan launches longer-range electric vehicle

"The new auto is lower, wider and sportier, with the point of this design being to get greater accessibility of the market".

Koichi Sugimoto, analyst at Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities in Tokyo, says many automakers are selling green models because of tightening emissions regulations, especially in Europe and California, rather than because of what he called "natural sales growth".

Prices will start at 3,150,360 yen (£22,220), Nissan said. "You can get more range with a Model 3 or a Bolt EV, but you have to pay more money", said Kelley Blue Book senior analyst Karl Brauer. Here's a rundown of what's coming. It will also be cheaper, though the world's top-selling electric vehicle still won't match the driving range of its prime competitors.

It can also go further, with a range of 235miles on a single charge, and has been redesigned for a new generation, with a sleeker look inside and out.

If that's not enough, Nissan says it will introduce a high-power version with extra battery capacity at the end of 2018.

Withdrawn from sale in Australia due to a lack of interest, the previous model had a range of about 135km with outputs of 80kW/280Nm.

Tesla received the enough pre-order for the Tesla Model 3 vehicle and started working to produce the cars.

"Electric vehicle technology is advancing rapidly - costs are falling quickly and range is improving", said Prof David Bailey, an automobile expert at Aston Business School.

Also new is the car's "e-powertrain", which provides not only more power and stronger performance than the current Leaf, but also a longer range from its lithium-ion battery pack. And if nothing else, it's a real upgrade for existing Leaf owners at a price that should prove tempting to many.

There's no word just yet about its name, but we do know it won't be called "Terra" as the company's design boss revealed it will be called something else since the recently trademarked moniker - which was used on an electric crossover concept in 2012 - is reserved for a different vehicle. "What has been completely refreshed is the front fascia, which had been the main point of criticism for the design of the previous version of the vehicle". In addition, the new driver information display has a simple, light configuration without excessive decoration. On the inside, you'll find a 7-inch touchscreen and a nice digital/analog driver instrument cluster.

This is the all-new Nissan Leaf, the second generation of the Japanese brand's ground breaking EV hatchback that brought electric motoring to the masses. The first is ProPILOT advanced driver assistance system which has been created to make single lane driving on the road less stressful and more relaxing. "That is attractively cheap for a reliable and easily-serviceable electric vehicle". This also parks the vehicle with complete control so the driver doesn't need to press a thing.

The new Leaf comes with the latest feature from Nissan's self-driving research and development effort. Torque has been increased 26% to 320Nm, resulting in improved acceleration.
