Nissan has unveiled the latest iteration of the all-electric LEAF, and it’s more sci-fi than ever before. The 2022 model debuts with a sharper frontend, as well as new 16 and 17-inch alloy wheel options.
The grille now features the Japanese marque’s revised emblem, bringing the LEAF into a new era of minimalism. To top it all off, two colours have been added to the palette.
In addition to the current six monotone and five two-tone paint options, you can now option the vehicle in Universal Blue and Magnetic Blue.
The LEAF remains all-electric with two battery options, delivering a maximum range of 385km (WLTP) of autonomy in the LEAF e+. Technology remains the central focus of the car, and updates include ProPILOT technology for self-driving capabilities.
Like its electric rivals, the vehicle also offers ‘one pedal driving’ to allow virtually effortless deceleration. The cabin remains a tech-fest too, with an onboard NissanConnect system, which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The complementary app also allows certain features of the vehicle, such as climate control, to be remotely operated.
“The Nissan LEAF has always been about making advanced technology and the thrill of electric driving accessible to everyone with over 577,000 customers worldwide,” Nissan spokesperson Arnaud Charpentier said.
The brand intends to launch 23 new electrified models by 2030, and the next generation LEAF forms part of that fleet. The new model will arrive in Australia in August, offering a range of 270km and 385km for the LEAF and LEAF e+, respectively.
The Nissan LEAF is priced from $50,990, while the LEAF e+ is priced from $61,490 – both plus on-roads.
