IT was the car that kickstarted the electric revolution.
Now the rest of the automotive world unveils its EV future, Nissan is busy taking the wraps off its second generation Leaf.
Unveiled in Japan earlier this month, the new Leaf will feature ProPILOT autonomous tech which can drive the car in single-lane traffic and park for you.
Built at the Japanese firm’s Sunderland plant, the new car features a fresh look and a range of 235 miles.
That’s 111 miles more than the 24kW base version of the outgoing car and beats the current top-of-the-range 30kW model by 80 miles.
