Nissan teases upcoming Leaf yet again in the meantime

Previously, Nissan unveiled a teaser image of the upcoming Leaf's headlights, giving a first glimpse of the maruqe's upcoming EV. Now, Nissan has released yet another teaser of the all-new Leaf and a release date. Set to make its official debut on September 6, expect the Leaf to break cover in Tokyo and feature an all-new look said to be inspired by the IDS concept.

Our spies have previously given us a first look of the 2018 Leaf though still draped in heavy camouflage. The latest update from Nissan meanwhile gives us an updated look of the company's signature V-motion grill. The Nissan logo is now embedded into the plastic grill, which features diamond shaped designs.

From what Nissan has released so-far, we do know that the Leaf will get a completely redesigned front fascia given the new headlights and grill teasers, both of which were said to be inspired by the IDS concept. From the spied photos, the rear meanwhile will feature sleeker headlights. Inside Nissan has also given us a glimpse of the digital cluster mated with a mechanical speedo. Apart from those details, nothing is official yet unless Nissan decides to reveal more features of the upcoming EV.

Powering the all-new Leaf is said to be a 60kWh battery pack, which supposedly allows it to have an improved range of 547 km on a single charge. It is also said to be the first Nissan to be equipped with autonomous driving capabilities by adopting Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist driver-assistance technology. The technology allows the car to drive itself during single-lane driving.
