The 2018 Nissan Leaf incorporates a completely new design inspired by the Nissan IDS Concept. The second generation model has a conventional and sporty look, which is the opposite of the original model. Inside, there are traces of the other latest production models, such as the Nissan Micra. The second-gen Nissan Leaf is 4,480 mm long, 1,790 mm wide, and 1,540 mm tall. It has a 2,700 mm wheelbase and a 150 mm ground clearance.
The 2018 Nissan Leaf is powered by an updated version of the EM57 electric motor. The new EM57 electric motor generates 150 PS from 3,283-9,795 rpm and 320 Nm of torque from 0-3,283 rpm. A 40 kWh battery pack is standard. A full charge using a 3 kW/6 kW charger takes 16 hours/8 hours. Using a quick charger, though, it takes only 40 minutes to charge from alert to 80%.
Noteworthy features of the 2018 Nissan Leaf include two-tone roof, unique V-motion grille, sleek LED headlamps with a floating boomerang signature, 17-inch aero design wheels, diffuser-style rear bumper with blue highlights, LED rear combination lamps, 7-inch full-colour driver information display, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, seats with blue stitching, e-Pedal, ProPILOT and ProPILOT Park.
Nissan has confirmed that it will launch the second-gen Nissan Leaf in Thailand. It has not, however, revealed a timeline for the launch yet.
