The new Nissan LEAF, launched in the UK in early 2018, is the next generation of the world's best-selling zero-emissions electric vehicle new model has been reinvented to offer greater range, dynamic design, advanced driver assistance technologies and enhanced connectivity.

The new Nissan LEAF offers an improved range of 378km (235miles) on a single charge whilst also delivering improved acceleration and driver enjoyment. The new LEAF boasts ProPILOT advanced driver assistance system which uses the steering, braking and acceleration to assist the driver within single lane, low movement traffic, enabling the new LEAF to autonomously slowdown and stop where traffic flow ceases and then start to follow the car in front when the flow resumes; ProPILOT Park offers fully autonomous parking.

The new Nissan LEAF’s revolutionary e-Pedal technology lets the driver start, accelerate, decelerate and stop using just the accelerator. When the accelerator is fully released, the hydraulic and friction brakes are applied automatically, bringing the car to a complete stop and regenerating the braking energy to recharge the battery. The car holds its position, even on steep up and downhill slopes, until the accelerator is pressed again.
