Nissan Leaf Car Latest Update
Nissan has unveiled its next-gen all-electric Leaf and it, as per Nissan, embodies three key aspects of the company’s EV (electric vehicle) design philosophy – intelligent driving, intelligent power and intelligent integration.
The new Nissan Leaf is loaded with futuristic technology. Some of the standout features include ProPilot autonomous driving. It is a single-lane self-driving feature that can follow the vehicle in front with a speed preset by the driver between 30kmph and 100kmph. Then there is ProPilot Park which, with the help of 12 ultrasonic sensors and four high-res cameras around the car, takes control of the acceleration, braking, handling, shift-changing and parking brakes to guide the car into a parking spot.
Moreover, the Nissan Leaf promises to be one of the safest cars out there. The safety equipment includes Intelligent Lane Intervention, Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Intelligent Around View Monitor with moving object detection and Emergency Assist for pedal misapplication.
The powerplant underneath is an improved electric motor that pumps out 150PS of power and 320Nm of torque. Over its predecessor, that’s 38 per cent and 26 per cent more power and torque respectively. The new 40kWh battery pack gets more energy capacity without increasing its size. That translates to a 67 per cent increase in energy density versus the 2010 model. Even though the powerplant packs more oomph, the lithium-ion battery delivers an estimated range of 400km.
Daniele Schillaci, head, global sales and marketing at Nissan Motor Company has confirmed that the all new Nissan Leaf will be tested extensively in India this year.
