In September 2017, Nissan unveiled a new version of its fully electric Nissan Leaf car, which promises powerful acceleration, agile handling, and advanced technologies such as Nissan’s ProPilot autonomous driving system.

Nissan has received orders for more than 12,000 Leaf vehicles since its European debut in October 2017.

The Leaf's new e-powertrain delivers 110kW of power and 320Nm of torque, improving acceleration to 7.9s from 0 to 100 km/h.

Meanwhile, charging time from alert to 80% (quick charging–50kw) takes 40 to 60 minutes, and 7.5 hours from alert to 100% with a 7Kw wallbox.
