Nissan Leaf Photographed At The Factory Where It's Made

2018 Nissan LEAF Dynamic Design teased with new photo of Nissan's new electric bedrock 2018 Nissan LEAF appears in Japanese TV advert

Nissan is building up more hype for its next-generation LEAF hatchback by featuring the electric family vehicle in a television advert which is being broadcast in Japan. Over the past few months, Nissan has been gradually teasing images and features of the vehicle, most recently the "e-Pedal" feature and aerodynamic performance.

Already caught in production form ahead of a September unveiling, the new Leaf's pricing has also reportedly been leaked, as Autoblog has obtained some pricing and specification information for Nissan's new EV.

Autobytel, a website that lists and advertises cars for dealerships, posted specs for the "2018 Nissan Leaf", which will feature Nissan's next generation electric platform, before taking them down. It's reported that the Nissan Leaf will deliver 147 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque.

Of course, the validity of the 2018 Leaf's leaked specs remains unconfirmed. This could be a serious point of consideration for prospective buyers, especially since the first deliveries of the Model 3 are limited to the car's more expensive premium variants.

Police officer filmed people having sex from helicopter
Pogmore, from Rotherham, was understood to know the couple who he filmed having sex and they even waved to him at one point. The videos were not discovered until March 2015, when the tapes were found in a drawer Pogmore used at a police station.

Nissan's new LEAF will be the first auto from the Japanese manufacturer to be available with ProPilot, the most sophisticated autonomous driving assist system yet from the brand. According to a new report, it may actually be $5,000 cheaper than the Tesla Model 3 which starts at $35,000. The Leaf SV's pricing is said to be $32,490 while the range-topping SL is $36,200.

While the 2018 Nissan Leaf might very well be a more affordable alternative to the Model 3, the upcoming Japanese EV does have a very good reason why the auto is priced at a lower bracket than Tesla's vehicle.

A long-range Leaf battery pack has also been rumoured, which will allegedly achieve around a 300 miles range. Considering the current Leaf is rated at just 107 miles on a charge and Nissan has been promising a 200-mile range for the new auto, the 40kWh battery may serve as a cheaper option compared to future variants that may be added. This gives us high hopes about seeing a Leaf soon.
