Nissan is beginning the slow tease of the new Leaf.
The Japanese automaker has released the first official teaser image for its next-gen electric car, showing off the headlights that look a bit like what’s seen on the IDS Concept. Nissan says the image is the “first in a series of photos and informational briefs scheduled this summer,” but hopefully it won’t be as drawn out as the Dodge Demon teasers. Expect to see the official debut of the next-gen Nissan Leaf later this year, sometime in September.
Beyond that, Nissan isn’t saying much for now, but expect the next-gen model to feature a 60-kWh battery pack that should allow it to go at least 200 miles on a single charge. Pricing should be around $35,000 to compete with the new Chevrolet Bolt and upcoming Tesla Model 3. The company also confirmed earlier this year that the next-gen Nissan Leaf will feature ProPILOT, Nissan’s driver assistance system that’s comparable to Tesla’s Autopilot.
