Nissan continues to tease the arrival of its next-generation LEAF hatchback with a fresh preview image indicating the sharper and more radical shape and design of the electric family vehicle.

While Tesla 3 is getting all hype in the electric vehicle realm, a quieter technology innovation from Nissan - the e-Pedal on the new 2018 all electric LEAF - may more fundamentally move the mass market towards electric cars. According to Nissan, the new Leaf is also lower than the previous model to reduce lift and make the auto more stable. For starters, Nissan has confirmed that the auto will have an "e-Pedal" system that will let drivers use only one pedal to drive the vehicle in many circumstances. "In heavy traffic and during city commutes, drivers will greatly reduce the need to shift from one pedal to the other, making your drive simpler and more engaging". I'm talking about aerodynamics: A car's ability to slice through the air. The new Leaf looks much like a larger version of the new Nissan March, which is a cool-looking B-segment hatchback.
Finally, at least one spy video showed a reading of 265 kilometers - that's 165 miles - of driving range.
