The second generation of the Nissan Leaf will not be presented until the next month of September, little more than a week before the official opening of the Frankfurt show 2017, which opens its doors on the day 14. However, in recent days we have witnessed a whole parade of leaks of the new electric model of the japanese brand, which we have seen recently even in the factory where it produces the model in Japan, the plant of Oppama.
Thanks to Autobytel, a portal, u.s.-specializing in the sale of cars by the internet, now we can also know its future price, as this site has leaked the prices of the entire range Leaf in that market. And to be truthful these data, we find as the second generation of the electric will be quite cheaper than the original model, especially taking into account the high technological burden the new model.
As we can see in the table, the model 2018 -corresponding already to the second generation – reduces their prices of output in the u.s. market up to us $ 1,700 per, according to versions, with respect to the model 2017. Which is quite remarkable taking into account the great leap prestacional that give this new model, which now has 150 HP and a maximum torque of 320 Nm and a pack of batteries for more capacity.

|Leaf S||30.680 $||28.990 $|
|Leaf SV||34.200 $||32.490 $|

The new Leaf of 2018, photographed completely naked just a few days, you will enjoy a technological burden remarkable. The new pack of batteries from LG Chem will consist of 40 kWh, which will allow a range of around 265 miles, although it is believed that we could find ourselves with a variant of extended autonomy, equipped with a battery of greater capacity, although by the time the Leaf will come to market with only one option in this aspect.
In terms of the section of the equipment, the new Leaf will have the latest news of the brand, including the system of driving assistance ProPILOT Assist, which will premiere the newly renovated Qashqai from spring 2018.
likewise, we find systems such as the Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Automatic Emergency Braking (CBAP), Electric Parking Brakes (EPKB), Intelligent Lane Intervention (I-LI) and High-Beam Assist (HBA). In the interior we will find a new infotainment system with 5-inch screen in the basic finishing and possibility to mount an optional 7-inch screen in addition, according to versions, Bose audio system, vision camera 360, steering wheel and heated seats, electrically adjustable driver’s seat, system of keyless access and even leather upholstery.

In terms of the exterior, in addition to the strong redesign that we have already been able to verify that it will suffer the Leaf, the main novelty will be the possibility of having body bi-tone, as we have seen in the recent leaks of the model. This finish is optional and includes pillars, roof and door mirrors in a different colour to the bodywork. For the moment, do not know the letter and color combinations possible for this finish in two colors, but the white and the black is one of them. The new rims are also available in 17 inch.
