The new electric powertrain delivers an exhilarating, linear driving performance with a power output of 110 kW, 38% more than the previous generation of Nissan LEAF. Torque has been increased 26% to 320 Nm, resulting in improved acceleration.

Even with the additional power output, the new Nissan LEAF's driving range has increased. The car's new 40kWh Lithium-ion battery pack delivers an estimated range of 400 km[1], which should satisfy the daily driving of our customers.

This brand-new product also comes with the latest e-Pedal technology, which allows drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate, stop, and hold the car by using the accelerator pedal. It also features ProPILOT, a single-lane autonomous driving technology, and ProPILOT Park that automatically controls the vehicle and guides it into parking spots.

New e-POWER Technology

Nissan's smart e-POWER technology, a further innovation under 'Nissan Intelligent Mobility,' will be on display at the booth. e-POWER is an adaptation of electric vehicle technology perfected in the Nissan LEAF. This technology features a small gasoline engine that helps recharge the vehicle's high-output battery when necessary, eliminating the need for an external battery recharger.. Nissan's e-POWER EV-based drivetrain delivers massive torque almost instantly andconstantly, which enhances drive response and results in smooth acceleration. This means exceptional driving enjoyment while delivering much lower fuel consumption when compared to conventional hybrid vehicles.
