Priced at $49,990 plus on road costs, the new LEAF embodies Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s approach to changing the way cars are driven, powered and integrated into society. The three key aspects of Nissan Intelligent Mobility exemplified by the new Nissan LEAF are Nissan Intelligent Driving, Nissan Intelligent Power and Nissan Intelligent Integration.

Available in a single high-spec grade, new Nissan LEAF has a contemporary exterior and interior design. It comes with an 8-inch touchscreen display, 7-inch Advanced Drive Assist Display, satellite navigation, a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear leather-accented^ seats and space for five.

Nissan LEAF also features e-Pedal. e-Pedal allows drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate, stop and hold the car by using the accelerator pedal alone without needing to use the brakes. It also features an Auto-Hold function.

It also features Intelligent Around-View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, Intelligent Cruise Control, Intelligent Driver Alert, front and rear parking sensors, six SRS airbags, Vehicle Dynamic Control with Traction Control System, ISOFIX and three top tether child restraint anchor points.

Nissan Intelligent Integration

Integration goes beyond what’s in the car, Nissan LEAF is a mobile power source thanks to its Nissan Energy Share bi-directional charging capabilities. This means that, in future, Nissan LEAF customers in Australia will be able to use the vehicle to share energy stored in its battery with their home, business or even community.

New Nissan LEAF also includes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™~ – a first for a Nissan in Australia.

Nissan Intelligent Power

The focal point of Nissan Intelligent Power in the new Nissan LEAF is the e-powertrain. Its powerful 40kWh battery outputs 110kW of power and 320Nm of torque providing instant acceleration, making this new generation of the world’s most popular electric vehicle extremely fun to drive.

Range and Charging

Ensuring range anxiety is reduced considerably, the new Nissan LEAF has a driving range of 315km (NEDC ADR 81/02 combined cycle) and a 270km indicative driving range (European WLTP combined cycle).  With most city-based Australians driving a low 38kms a day, Nissan LEAF will satisfy the daily driving needs for the majority of buyers.

While you can fully charge LEAF within 24 hours using a standard home wall socket, the time drops to 7.5 hours if the household has the latest 7kW home charger. You can also plug your LEAF into a CHAdeMO rapid charger and get from alert to 80 per cent charge in around 60 minutes depending on charging conditions.

JET Charge & Chargefox

Offering a holistic EV purchase experience, a collaboration with JET Charge will assist customers with all of their home charging infrastructure needs, and via a partnership with Chargefox, Nissan hopes to help increase charging awareness, inspire future use and ready the country for the impending spike in EV sales.

Available for pre-sale now and in dealerships from August 1, new Nissan LEAF is available in six contemporary colours including Arctic White, Ivory Pearl with black roof, Magnetic Red, Pearl Black, Platinum and Gun Metallic.
