2018 Nissan LEAF Review
As electric vehicle technology becomes more advanced, more and more drivers in the Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton areas are making the switch. You never have to deal with filling up at the pump again, and you can be confident you’re not adding to the already polluted atmosphere. However, there are quite a few electric cars on the market, so finding the right one for your needs can be tough.
Nissan has always been a pioneer in automotive technology, so you can expect their electric car to be state-of-the-art. The 2018 Nissan LEAF has a lot to offer, but is it enough for your standards? Find out in our detailed 2018 Nissan LEAF review.
2018 Nissan LEAF Specs
You may not think that an electric car can have much power to it, but modern technology and engineering is more advanced than ever. When you’re behind the wheel of the 2018 LEAF, you can enjoy 147 horsepower, which is more than some gas-powered sedans offer. In addition, you can experience what instant acceleration is like. Unique to electric cars, you get 100% torque the second you accelerate.
The range on the LEAF is also quite impressive. On a single charge, you can travel up to 150 miles. With 240V fast charging at home, just one hour of charging can offer you a travel range of 22 miles. The 50KW fastest charging is only available in public stations, but they offer an 88-mile range after just 30 minutes of charging.
The tech that makes the 2018 Nissan LEAF even possible is incredible, but the extra features inside make this a one-of-a-kind electric car. Opt for the available Nissan ProPILOT Assist feature, and it’ll change the way you think about driving. All the little stressors you deal with on the road every day are slowly done away with as this incredible system does its work.
While fully autonomous driving isn’t available yet, ProPILOT is as close as you can get. You can set it up to follow the car in front of you, and it’ll automatically keep a preset distance away. If you hit a traffic jam, this system can even brake for you and take you to a complete stop. As traffic starts moving, so will you as the LEAF begins to follow the car in front of you at your preset distance. It can even make minor steering adjustments to keep you in your lane should you start to drift out.
Nissan technology also comes in handy when it comes to safety features. Some of its advanced safety systems include:
- Blind Spot Warning
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Intelligent Lane Intervention
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
While most cars only scan for other approaching vehicles, the 2018 LEAF uses Pedestrian Detection to ensure complete safety for everyone on the road. The Intelligent Around View® Monitor feature also offers you insight into your surroundings like never before. With a 360o bird’s-eye view, you’ll be able to see from every angle, including your blind spot.
