The booming sales of Nissan Leaf in 2017, as well as early 2018, show just only one front-runner on the world market of electric cars. That is Nissan Leaf model. Being launched by Nissan Motor. Co in 2010, this model led the Japanese car producer to the world leading positions. Since that, more than 300, 000 cars of this model were sold. It managed to bypass all powerful electric-gasoline rivals, concentrated on producing electric-gasoline hybrids.
Everybody knows about the benefits of electric automobiles. They are cheaper to maintain, they have lower running costs, they are better for our environment. I mean less pollution, green materials, renewable energy. Not speaking about general health advantages and safety indicators. It is not surprising that the eyes of millions of car owners turn gradually towards the eco-friendly and inexpensive electric cars.
A lot of things changed since that time. In contrast to its first model with 100 miles mileage on a single charge, the brand new model permits you to drive up to 237 miles. It happens thanks to the usage of a more innovative 40kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Its producers affirm that the 40-minute plugging will allow you to recharge almost 80 percent of its capacity. New batteries have advanced technology and better range specifications. A cutting-edge switchable system was launched. It leads to an effective one-pedal driving. If you release the accelerator, your car will immediately slow down and stop. Besides, an advanced autonomous driving capacity is introduced. It is especially effective in slow-moving highway lines.
The engineers of Nissan Leaf convince the world audience that ProPilot, the trailblazing version of Nissan`s ground-breaking driver assistance system, permitting to park the car by itself, belongs to the best world variants. It introduces some completely new software elements.
Though, the battery-powered automobiles account for just only 1 per cent of the world car market in 2017, the perspectives for the EV are just incredible. Numerous mass media think tanks from New York, Berlin and Tokyo affirm it. They could not be wrong.
To keep its leading position, the Nissan Leaf producers should cut through the highly competitive present-day automobile market. The biggest rivals for this model are Tesla 3, Chevrolet Bolt, the forthcoming Volvo variants, and some secret China model, which should appear in July 2018 or in January 2019.
Hiroshi Ataka, one of the leading Japanese experts in car making business, says, “Such cutting-edge technologies will make the second generation of Nissan Leaf more competitive.” You see, at least, in the nearest future, Nissan Leaf is going to keep the winning position among all powerful business rivals.
Without any doubts, this electric car brand has an impressive future. I think that those drivers who can count money won`t sidestep it without any attention. The world best-selling electric car leader with highly innovative aerodynamic exterior, ultramodern interior and top-notch characteristics is worth your attention.
