More importantly, the new Leaf is likely to feature Nissan's ProPilot autonomous driving tech with the model getting three levels of autonomous capability. The EV will also see a major hike in its total range from the current 172 km range. With other electric vehicles having grown by a good margin, the new Leaf is expected carry a maximum range of 350-400 km on a single charge. That said, the new Leaf will be offered in multiple range options internationally.
The Nissan Leaf is one of the most popular EVs globally with over 260,000 units sold since its launch in 2009 We exclusively told you that the Leaf is being considered for India and it is said that a pilot program in collaboration with government bodies is also planned towards the end of this year.
