Nissan digital EV education series: part 3

The Third part of Asia & Oceania’s Electric Vehicle (EV) Education Series, proves electric cars do not suffer from performance inertia

The new generation of electric vehicles are exhilarating, safe, clean and enjoyable to drive.

With an e-powertrain that generates instant torque, the new Nissan LEAF accelerates from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 7.9 seconds, boosting exhilaration and performance. Coupled with extremely low vibrations, these elements combine to deliver a high quality, smooth and responsive drive.

The new Nissan LEAF is also equipped with the e-Pedal technology, allowing drivers to intuitively start, accelerate, slow down and stop the EV, with differing amounts of pressure applied to a single pedal. When the accelerator is fully released, even on steep uphill slopes, brakes will be applied automatically, bringing the car to a complete stop.

In stop-and-go city traffic, the e-Pedal reduces the need to shift from one pedal to the other, making driving simpler and more engaging. It also allows for sporty driving on winding roads, making the driving experience more exciting.

With a significantly quieter engine compared to conventional cars, the new Nissan LEAF enables the experience of gliding around in virtual silence, making rides more enjoyable for both driver and passenger. When combined with zero-tailpipe emissions, the new Nissan LEAF also inspires drivers to consider the potential benefits EVs can bring to our roads, especially in reducing air and noise pollution.

Safety is another feature that characterizes the Nissan LEAF, achieving a 5-star rating on both the EURO NCAP and JNCAP.

“The new Nissan LEAF is designed for the new-generation driver – the eco-conscious performance enthusiast. Becoming the top-selling EV in the world is a testament to how this car has exceeded drivers’ expectations. Nissan will continue to transform the way vehicles are driven, powered, and integrated, adding greater value and paving the way to cities of the future.” said Yutaka Sanada, regional senior vice president for Nissan Asia & Oceania.
