2018 Nissan Leaf Eats Dirt Kicked Up By Chevy Bolt & Model 3

The Chevrolet Bolt is on top at the moment in the EV battery race as it offers a 60kWh battery and zero emissions. It has been getting plenty of attention and in fact so much that the Nissan Leaf has been in its shadow.

The 2018 Nissan Leaf has remained at the top for global sales among EVs but it is possible that very soon it will be kicked off its pedestal. The Second generation of the Leaf does have the 60kWh battery so it does match the Bolt, it offers up a range of 200 miles. This is going to help it in its battle to get to the top, but is it going to be too late?

Many people thought that the Nissan Leaf would come to the market as a 2017 model but this didn’t happen and it remained with the 30kWh battery offering only 107 miles. The move of Nissan to get rid of the 35kWh or 40kWh battery options meant that the Leaf is now eating the dust of the BMW I3, Hyundai Ioniq Electric and Ford Focus Electric.

Nissan really needs to offer up something bigger than the 60kWh battery for the 2018 version of the Nissan Leaf if they want to stand a chance of being on top. The Leaf will have to catch up to the Chevy Bolt and the Tesla Model 3, which should arrive on the market at about the same time.

If the Nissan Leaf is to beat the AutoPilot of Tesla then the ProPilot driving system does need to offer something more enticing. The Bolt meanwhile offers up more functionality, so it doesn’t need a semi-autonomous driving feature.

2017 Nissan Leaf Will Show Chevrolet Bolt How It’s Done
March 9, 2017  Eddy E


The all new Chevrolet Bolt may be the best EV car money can buy today but it is still vulnerable to the Nissan Leaf. The latter is about to get updated with a new generation model and it will be one that promises to conquer the green segment.

The next-gen Leaf outdoing the Chevrolet Bolt is a foreseeable outcome, especially if you are to check out how the Leaf is performing at this point of time. The current Leaf has an outdated driving range and it wears age-old technologies. However, that didn’t stop the car from making gains on the sales front on the consistent basis and this suggests that the next-gen Leaf is going to enjoy an impactful debut.

The future Leaf will be fine-tuned for the EV future as it looks to arrive with more than 200 miles of driving range to offer and the car will also have a beautiful futuristic style. Spy shots have confirmed that the future Leaf will be ditching the egg shell structure and appear more like the IDS concept.

The full details are expected to surface later this year but the video below is enough to convince us that the next-gen Leaf will be a fan-favorite EV car thus giving it the potential to become the segment champion.
