Nissan Leaf Boasts Nissan’s Flagship Connect system with its satellite navigation and car wings system which can be controlled via an app for Apple Products Such as i phone/i-pad. The system sends and receives data via a built-in GPRS radio similar to the connectivity of mobile phones. Carwings is connected any time the car is in range of a cell tower and it makes possible several user functionalities, such as position and possible range on a map and which charging stations are available within range. The system also tracks and compiles statistics about distance traveled and energy consumption and produces daily, monthly and annual reports of these and several other operational parameters. All information is available in the Leaf’s digital screens.Through a smart phone application or secure web page, owners can remotely turn on the air-conditioner or heater as well as reset charging functions even when the vehicle is powered down. This remote functionality can be used to pre-heat or pre-cool the car prior to use while it is still charging so that less energy from the battery is used for climate control. An on-board timer can also be pre-programmed to recharge batteries at a set time such as during off-peak rates.The Leaf’s SL trim has a small solar panel at the rear of the roof/spoiler that can Trickle Charge the auxiliary battery.
The Nissan Leaf is by far the highest-volume electric car ever sold, with total sales now approaching 200,000 units.
Nissan is hard at work developing the next-generation Leaf focusing on improving the range with new battery tech and a more conventional look. The new car is expected to be on sale late in 2016, with prices starting around £17,000.
Nissan bosses are promising new battery technology is on the way, with better energy density for a more usable pure electric vehicle. A figure of about 186 miles is likely to be the target
Nissan’s chief planning officer, Andy Palmer, Has Said new battery technology should debut by 2017, so we expect to see the Leaf and the Infiniti EV debut in 2016. Providing the £5,000 Government grant for low-emissions vehicles remains in place, prices should start at around £17,000.
The Next Generation Leaf is Expected to boast 250 Mile Range on a 30kw Battery But we Will Have To Wait Until 2017 for that to be launched and confirmed.
