Nissan Leaf 2020

Price reductions for the Nissan Leaf in May 2020

The newly ignited competition in the small and compact car segment for electric cars is also affecting new car prices this year. In view of new competition, especially from Volkswagen and Tesla, Nissan is significantly reducing new car prices for the Nissan Leaf. The current Nissan Leaf was completely renewed in 2018 not only technically, but also externally. Let's start with the revised body: The front section of the Leaf now picks up on the typical wide V-shaped branded grill from Nissan; only the brand logo has a shimmering blue background and now identifies the vehicle as an electric car.

The body was made heavier and more stable due to the higher performance; heavy components such as the battery are located in the middle of the chassis and give the Leaf extra stability and cornering dynamics. Outwardly, the new Nissan embodies much more of a dynamic Stromer than the previous model. A striking side line, new projection headlights and the flowing roof emphasize the sporty design. The new, elegant silhouette of the Leaf is also enhanced by the low-lying bonnet. It helps keep the electric car's drag value at 0,28. The new headlights also have one lens each for high and low beam - a novelty for Nissan vehicles.

The interior of the Leaf has also been redesigned. Blue stitching on the seats, door panels, armrests and steering wheel indicate that the interior of the Leaf is also an electric vehicle. The center console now offers better and easier operation and also the option of integrating the smartphone. The new technologies with which the new Nissan Leaf has been equipped include the ProPILOT, ProPILOT Park and the e-Pedal.

Two engines with different battery packs

The ProPILOT is designed to ensure safe and relaxed driving in single-lane motorway traffic and, above all, to relieve the driver of work in traffic jams. The ProPILOT Park is a parking system that can take over the entire parking maneuver - turning, braking and accelerating.

The electric motor of the Leaf should not only have a more dynamic performance thanks to improved energy efficiency and improved torque and drive power, its output has been increased by 38 percent compared to the first Nissan Leaf. The drive train now has an output of 110 kW (150 hp) and a new torque of 320 Nm. The now 40 kWh lithium-ion battery with a higher energy density enables the new Leaf to have a range of up to 378 kilometers. Thanks to the vehicle-to-grid technology, bidirectional charging is made possible, because the Leaf's battery can now also be used as a mobile energy storage device. The more powerful version of the Leaf with the name extension e + has a 62 kWh battery with a 160 kW (217 PS) electric motor with 340 Nm torque.
