Leaf, the green car from Nissan, has been known to get a handful of bad reviews for its looks and high cost. Nissan has decided to change all those by launching a whole new version. The new version of the Nissan Leaf will feature zero tailpipe, emissions, will be 100% electric, 80 kW synchronous electric motor, 100 miles/charge based on the US EPA LA4 city cycle and speed up to 90 mph.
The new version will also seat 5 passengers, have 5 doors, battery heater, 80 kW AC synchronous motor, 24 kWh lithium-ion battery, 3.3 kW onboard charger, 120V portable trickle charging cable, 4-wheel power-assisted vented disc brakes, regenerative braking system
4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), electronic parking brake and many more awesome features.
The company says they will fine-tune the car for the European customer from a designer point of view. Since the next models will be built in Sunderland in England, the new version of the Leaf will cost a lot less.
Although there is no absolute certainty in the actual price of the car, Nissan has said that almost a third of the price of the car will be taken out as it is made in the UK.
The new generation car will not only look better and cost less, but will also deliver much better performance and power. If you care about pollution and what not, the new Nissan Leaf will definitely be an option for you.
