2018 Nissan Leaf Teases its New Front Grille

Nissan has again teased the next-generation Leaf EV ahead of the model’s unveiling on September 6.

The latest teaser image came courtesy of Nissan’s Twitter account, giving a small preview of the electric car’s front grille. The tweet also confirms we’ll know everything about the car in September, which means it will likely make its public debut just before the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Spy photographers have caught the next-generation Nissan Leaf testing numerous times. The EV will retain its hatchback design while also drawing inspiration from the Nissan IDS Concept and Micra in terms of styling.

The Japanese automaker has been promoting its ProPILOT Assist features that will be featured in the new Leaf, offering semi-autonomous technology for self-driving on the highway. Look for a driving range between 210 to 220 miles as the new Leaf will compete mainly with the Chevrolet Bolt and Tesla Model 3.

We’ll have more info following its early September debut, but it’s almost certain Nissan will drop more teasers between then and now.
