Nissan's 2022 LEAF launches in Europe from April, as it receives a mid-cycle update and a new refreshed look as Nissan prepares for an all-electric lineup after summer 2022. The updated version of the Nissan LEAF includes new features to its exterior, replacing the older model.
The new 2022 LEAF benefits from a refreshed exterior, in line with Nissan's electrified brand identity. With a simplified trim structure of just two, customers get the S and the SV plus. The front end of the EV comes with a smooth and shiny black front grille, with an illuminated Nissan badge for an electrified new touch.
New identity with the choice of multiple exterior colour ranges
The option of 16 and 17-inch alloys with a distinctive new design will be made available, giving the all-electric model a sportier and edgier one-of-a-kind look. An updated lineup of colours for the vehicle's exterior provides the car with a new identity, choosing between five monotone colours and five two-tone options. In addition to its unique colour options, the LEAF will include two new hues: Pearl Blue and Magnetic Blue.
The dimensions between the earlier 2022 version and the mid-cycle 2022 version remain the same in its interior. The LEAF 2022 still seats five, and its interior design seems to be the same as the previous model. The LEAF offers infotainment features that include the NissanConnect system, featuring Apple Carplay and Android Auto, for smartphone integration. In addition to this, both EV trim structures have Nissan's intelligent cruise control function for easier handling of the car.
ProPILOT intelligent technology
Consisting of two battery options that will deliver up to 239 miles, the 2022 LEAF will combine an electrified driving experience with all-new driving assistance and connectivity technologies infused with the ten years of EV knowledge Nissan states to have. Another intelligent technology included is the ProPILOT technology that will enable the Nissan LEAF to automatically stop and start, maintain a constant safe distance between the EV itself and the vehicle in front. The e-Pedal allows the option to accelerate or slow down, and has the stopping power all in one pedal for the driver's comfort, says Nissan.
"The Nissan LEAF has always been about making advanced technology and the thrill of electric driving accessible to everyone, with over 577,000 customers worldwide. LEAF has been designed around families' needs to offer seamless connectivity and an efficient powertrain," stated Arnaud Charpentier, Region Vice President for Product Strategy and Pricing at Nissan.
The Nissan LEAF continues to market as a zero-emission electric car (EV) and plays the role of Nissan's commitment toward the electrification of its vehicles. The Nissan LEAF 2022 updated model will be available to order from 1st March, with prices starting from £26,995.
