Nissan has launched a refresh of the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle with Leaf 2022, with model new exterior styling and updated technology on the inside.
The Leaf 2022, which arrives in Europe in April, features a facelift of the highly successful Leaf, and also provides advanced driving assistance features such as ProPILOT, and infotainment technologies such as the on-board NissanConnect system.
“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. Leaf has been designed around families’ needs to offer seamless connectivity and an efficient powertrain,” said Arnaud Charpentier, Region Vice President, Product Strategy and Pricing, Nissan AMIEO region.
Offered with two battery options that deliver up to 239 miles (WLTP) of autonomy in the LEAF e+, LEAF 2022 combines an efficient electric driving experience with extensive driving assistance and connectivity technologies, infused with over 10 years of Nissan electric vehicle knowledge and innovation.
The ProPILOT technology enables Leaf 2022 to automatically stop, start and maintain a safe distance to the vehicle in front, while the innovative e-Pedal provides the option to accelerate, decelerate and stop with only one pedal for maximum comfort on the move.
“As the popularity of electric vehicles continues to grow, Nissan is pursuing an exhilarating chapter in its electric mobility story. Leaf has played a key role in shaping Nissan’s vision for empowering mobility and beyond, as we leverage our EV expertise to launch 23 new electrified models – including 15 full EVs – by fiscal year 2030,” said Arnaud Charpentier.
