The all new Nissan LEAF, which was launched in September, embodies Nissan’s ProPILOT single-lane autonomous driving technology, as well as ProPILOT Park – the first technology to be installed in a Japanese made vehicle. ProPILOT Park will help drivers park by automatically controlling the accelerator, brakes, steering, shift changing and parking brake. By using only the accelerator pedal the driver can start, accelerate, decelerate, stop and hold the car which is made possible by the e-Pedal technology.
Sporty exterior with enhanced aerodynamic performance, less lift and excellent drag coefficient is what the NISMO Concept version of the LEAF brings to the table. The red accents and black interior creates and exhilarating high-performance feel. Thanks to a sport tuned suspension and high-performance tires and a custom tuned computer that delivers instant acceleration at all speeds the LEAF NISMO Concept is by far one of the most exciting drives.
An exciting driving experience combined with an environmentally friendly side to it? That is exactly what the LEAF NISMO Concept achieved!
