On Tuesday, Nissan has announced its new car, Leaf. With the price $29,990, which is below Chevrolet Bolt and Tesla Model 3. Sales start October 2nd in Japan and by early next year in the U.S., Canada and Europe. This car reported to be the best car because of it pedals system.
Nissan Leaf will have a one-pedal system, which a button press turns the accelerator pad into an “e-Pedal” that can start, accelerate, brake and stop the vehicle. This will provide added energy efficiency gains.
Chris Lilly, content manager for the Next Green Car news site, said while the new model was not “groundbreaking” it should be more appealing to drivers.
There is also an automated parking system, called ProPilot Park. Using camera and radar, ProPilot Assist keeps the vehicle at a steady speed and brakes automatically for slower-moving vehicles, while making sure the vehicle stays in its lane.
The system can handle parallel parking, according to the firm, and can deal with up to seven-point turns. Drivers can also use dashboard controls to make adjustments to the parking spot in advance if they feel it is necessary. The model also automates single-lane highway driving.
More than 283,000 Leaf cars have been sold since the Japanese firm launched the brand in 2010. It makes Nissan Leaf as the world’s most purchased electric car. However, it is facing increasing competition in the fast-developing “green” car market, fuelled in part by tightening emissions standards around the world.
“The general industry standard for model cycles is around six-to-seven years. So the launch of the second generation Leaf falls neatly in to this timeframe,” commented Ian Fletcher, principal automotive analyst at the IHS Markit consultancy.
It said that in the next three to four years Nissan looks set to see further. And will upgraded brand new vehicles, and manufacturers in this space still have everything to play for.
Nissan is exploring tech upgrades across its line of vehicles. The automaker has also designed a smart rearview mirror. It can stream a video feed from a camera mounted on the back of the car. This feature will first be installed on the 2018.
