The 2018 Nissan Leaf is the second generation all-electric hatchback from Nissan. The improved battery will allow an impressive range of over 200 miles on a single charge cycle which dramatically offsets the outgoing year model’s range. Some of the glitches we saw last year has been addressed as well and all in all, it seems like Nissan Leaf will finally be catered to mass and not just targeting a small segment of drivers.

Exterior
The 2018 Nissan Leaf looks more mainstream than ever. Last year’s Nissan Leaf had a rather unusual styling with vertical tail lamps and the overall styling had raised some eyebrows. Good news is, 2018 Nissan Leaf doesn’t look weird at all, in fact it looks very respectable and you’ll have no problem blending in with other gas driven hatchbacks. The V-motion grille on the 2018 Nissan leaf looks slick, so is the body-side sculpting. The influence of IDS concept is very much visible. With an option for floating-roof design, the 2018 Nissan Leaf may very well be one of the most handsome budget electrics out there.

Interior
The 2018 Nissan Leaf interior is bland for a newer vehicle. There are a lot of buttons and they are not very sophisticated in anyway we want to spin it. The 7-inch touchscreen is identical to the touchscreen Nissan uses in most other models. 2018 Nissan Leaf is not compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is not standard with the base model. On the positive note, however, the 2018 Nissan Leaf features a cool 360-degree camera. Interior space has been much improved and while still tight, it’s not as crammy as it used to be.

Under the Hood
2018 Nissan Leaf is all electric. The electric motor will provide similar power we saw in the outgoing model which is roughly 107 horsepower and generates 187 lb-ft torque. With a front wheel drive and possibility to choose from three battery packs: between 40 kWh and 60 kWh. You can expect solid performance within the lower city speed limits but merely adequate elsewhere.

Price
The official pricing data has not been release for 2018 Nissan Leaf. Nissan Leaf is expected to hit the showrooms all across the U.S. in early January of 2018. We are expecting the price to be in the low $30,000 range.
