  1. Discharged a few secret shots of the all-new Leaf, which will be uncovered ahead of schedule one month from now. The auto has been seen essentially undisguised in various late government agent photographs, brandishing a look that is very not quite the same as the active model with a more articulated wedge shape, slabbier sides and a more keen snout. Furthermore, as the mystery picture appears, Nissan has redone the outside on account of streamlined proficiency, notwithstanding bringing down the auto for better security at roadway speeds.

    The most discussed part of the forthcoming Leaf has been the range, and late spilled archives (which initially showed up before being quickly brought down, may have uncovered some official specs.

    The spilled specs demonstrate that the new Leaf will offer 147 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque, up from 107 hp and 187 lb-ft in the present model, with a formerly revealed battery limit of 40 kWh.
