2018 Nissan Leaf teaser: electric car will 'amaze your senses'

Follow John

With the 2018 Nissan Leaf electric car due to be unveiled to the world in Japan on September 6, the company continues to release bits and pieces of teaser information.

Yesterday, Nissan issued a video promoting a list of the new model's features.

It also provided a photo of the electric hatchback's rear corner, showing a very different taillight design than that of the outgoing generation.

From the rear, the tallight has a chevron shape, wrapping around the rear corner of the car at the waistline, with a vertical reflector extending upwards next to the tailgate opening.

A large "Zero Emission" badge is also visible.

The rest of the car is shadowed out, though a Norwegian outlet snapped a shot of the 2018 Leaf without its usual camouflage covering that shows the shape of the rear in considerably more detail.

The new video is more impressionistic, with relatively little detail about features or specifications.

The new Leaf, it suggests, will provide "an experience that's simply amazing," one that will "excite your senses" and "give you real confidence on the road."

It provides "a breath of fresh air" from the all-electric powertrain, which also provides "a peaceful drive," while "available advanced technologies will enhance your vision."

The video doesn't offer any new information on the 2018 Leaf's EPA-rated range, nor its motor power or acceleration.

At least one version of the second-generation Leaf is expected to provide 200 miles or more of range, to compete with the 238-mile Chevrolet Bolt EV.

One new piece of information was contained in the accompanying press release, however.

More than 280,000 Nissan Leafs have been delivered globally since the car first launched in December 2010.

That keeps the Leaf as the world's highest-selling and most popular electric car, at least for the moment.

The formal global unveiling of the 2018 Nissan Leaf will be live-streamed from Japan on Wednesday, September 6, which in North American time zones will be late in the day on Tuesday, September 5.
