The 2018 Nissan Leaf electric car is due to be unveiled in Japan on September 6, and the company has continued to release bits and pieces of teaser information to keep the world keen for the reveal!
This week, Nissan released a video promoting a list of the new model's features. In addition, it provided a photo of the electric hatchback's rear corner. This picture shows a very different taillight design than that of the outgoing generation!
From the rear, the taillight has a chevron shape, wrapping around the rear corner of the car at the waistline, including a vertical reflector extending upwards next to the tailgate opening.
We can also see a "Zero Emission" badge on the car.
The rest of the car is teasingly shadowed out, though a Norwegian outlet snapped a picture of the 2018 Leaf without its usual camouflage covering – and this shows the shape of the rear in considerably more detail.
In the teaser, it is suggested that the new Leaf will provide "an experience that's simply amazing", one that will "excite your senses" and "give you real confidence on the road."
The 2018 Leaf will provide "a breath of fresh air" from the all-electric powertrains, which also provides "a peaceful drive," while "available advanced technologies will enhance your vision."
The video, however, does not offer any new information on the EPA-rated range, nor its motor power or acceleration.
At least one version of the second generation Leaf is expected to provide 200 miles or more of range, to compete with the 238 mile Chevrolet Bolt EV.
However, one new piece of information was given in the accompanying press release – more than 280,000 Nissan Leafs have been delivered globally since the car first launched in December 2010.
That information keeps the Leaf as the world's highest-selling and most popular electric vehicle for now!
The formal global unveiling of the 2018 Nissan Leaf will be live-streamed from Japan on Wednesday, September 6th, which (in North American Time Zones) will be late in the day on Tuesday, September 5th.
