Nissan LEAF appears in Japanese TV advert

Nissan LEAF appears in Japanese TV advert

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.

Talks the only way to resolve India-China row: Dalai Lama
Beijing has accused New Delhi of violating a convention signed in 1890 between Britain and China relating to Sikkim and Tibet. The 82-year-old Buddhist leader has lived in exile in India since he fled a failed Tibetan uprising almost 60 years ago.

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.
