Nissan LEAF appears in Japanese TV advert

2018 Nissan LEAF Dynamic Design teased with new photo of Nissan's new electric bedrock

Pictures of the new 2018 Nissan Leaf have been leaked onto the internet less than a month before it is due to be revealed.

The images appear authentic as they look very similar to those officially previewed by Nissan and also spotted by the spy photographers of our sister publication, Autocar UK. He goes by the pseudonym "Blue Miata" and chose to provide us all with a juicy leak showing most of the vastly improved exterior design of the world's best-selling EV now gearing up to make the transition towards a second generation. The user, "Blue Miata", claims to "work at a Nissan-related workplace", and that they "discovered the new Leaf on the inspection line at the Oppama plant".

Despite looking conventional, the LEAF's body has been sculpted to incorporate advanced aerodynamics that minimise drag to help maximise its pure-electric range.

Nissan is aiming to make the Leaf the segment's most autonomous-capable model; it will get the Pro Pilot Park technology, its newest system. We just need to wait to know if Nissan would turn a new leaf in its battle against Tesla in the days to come.

They had a period of dominance at middle of the first half and we had a period of dominance at middle of the second half. It was a real scare for the English team who were living precariously in the game.

Now the Autobytel specs state that the base version would indeed have a 40 kWh battery pack at a base price of $29,990.

At the rear of the vehicle, things are a little more daring but it's clear that Nissan wants to play safe with its pure-electric hatch this time and not scare away buyers with sci-fi-inspired looks.

Finally, the second-gen LEAF will also gain Nissan's ProPILOT semi-autonomous cruise control and parking aid.

When the future Leaf arrives on roads next year, it will lead Nissan's charge to grow EVs to represent 20 percent of its sales by 2020.
