2018 Nissan Leaf Slated To Debut On September 6
Nissan already confirmed on its official Twitter account that the 2018 Leaf vehicle will debut on September 6. In fact, a new teaser image previews the grille of the car and looks like it takes the design of the IDS concept that debuted at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.
After seven standard years and millions of different units sold, it's finally time for Nissan to unveil a new Leaf vehicle. The Japanese automaker has just confirmed that its 2018 all-electric hatchback car will be released on September 6. Although it remains cagey regarding any additional details, at least Nissan official announced the second-generation car's release date.
The next anticipated Leaf car model is expected to bring out its styling inspiration from the Nissan's well-received IDS Concept. This kind of design is an aggressive-looking one with five-door show car from 2015. It also features the next-generation electric propulsion, as well as autonomous drive technology. According to CNET, the 2018 Nissan hatchback is expected to essentially improve the 107-mile range offered in today's car.
Carlos Ghosn, Nissan's very own CEO, has made developing all-electric powertrains a foundation of the automaker's future product plans. And as the first modern mass-production on the electric automobile market, the second-generation Leaf maintains a special place in the Nissan's heart. The vehicle is expected to go on sale before the end of the year, Motor Trend reported. It is also likely to make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, which starts later in September.
Every inch of information makes sense since the Yokohama-based car company recently said that the next Leaf model will be available with a transcription of its ProPilot driver-assist technology. Aside from that, the hardware will also manage acceleration, as well as a braking and steering capability within one lane to help increase safety and lower driver stress.
