The New Nissan Leaf is Inspired by Airplane Wings

The promotional campaign for the next-generation Leaf has continued with yet another teaser.

The 2018 Nissan Leaf is set to debut on September 5, and for the past month or so, Nissan has released several teasers for one of its most important models. The most recent teaser focuses on the car’s improved aerodynamic design, with Nissan promises makes the Leaf even more efficient. Expect the new Leaf to be lower to the ground, helping it realize zero lift for better stability at high speeds. The Japanese automaker also said other new design features have significantly stabilized the car when it’s hit by strong crosswinds.

When it came to designing the 2018 Nissan Leaf, the company’s engineers were inspired by airplane wings when it came to creating the ideal shape for the car. The result is a symmetric air flow, allowing the Leaf to “slice through the air for a smoother, more efficient journey.”

The Nissan Leaf is currently the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, based on cumulative data from December 2010 to June 2017 with over 277,000 units sold.
