2018 Nissan LEAF Rendered

2018 Nissan LEAF Rendering

It’s more than just wishful thinking as it is based on those fully revealing spy shots.

The current Nissan Leaf represents one of the most sensible ways of getting behind the wheel of an EV, but its design is not what you would call alluring. That’s all set to change with the second generation slated to debut on September 6 with a whole new exterior design bringing a vast improvement over the outgoing model.

OmniAuto.it’s adjacent render builds upon several recent spy shots of an undisguised prototype of the 2018 Leaf spotted on the streets of Barcelona while taking part in a photo shoot for an upcoming promotional campaign. That one was likely a range-topping version with all the bells and whistles, including a two-tone finish with a predominantly white body contrasted by a glossy black roof. The upper section of the C-pillar was also finished in black to give the illusion of a so-called “floating roof.” It remains to be seen whether this will be the standard look or customers will have to pay extra to have it.

While beauty may very well be in the eye of the beholder, it’s hard to imagine someone who would prefer the design of the soon-to-be-discontinued Leaf over its replacement. It’s not just the exterior that is about to go through some radical changes as Nissan has also overhauled the EV’s cabin by giving it a more upscale feel as depicted above.

Beyond the styling, one of the numerous spy videos that have surfaced the web showed a prototype with a range of 165 miles (265 kilometers), so expect at least that from the production model. Needless to say, the 2018 Leaf might be able to travel more than that between two charges as the test vehicle might not have had the battery pack charged to a 100% capacity. The longer range will be possible not only by improving the hardware, but also by tweaking the body to boost its aerodynamic efficiency.

New Nissan LEAF

With more than 277,000 units sold so far, the Nissan Leaf is the best-selling EV in the world, so it goes without saying the second generation is one of the most highly anticipated premieres of the year. Following its debut next month, sales should kick off before the end of the 2017.

    It looks completely…..conventional.

    Which is an upgrade over the bizarro world freaky sci-fi look of the original Leaf…I guess.

    1. Pajda says:

      Well said 😀

    2. L'amata says:

      The Cartoon looking Leaf. yes huge improvement .Now I am hoping they gave it some range.

    3. Fred says:

      Is it? It looks utterly bland and boring… Gordon Ramsey would shout “It’s blaaannnddd!!”, and he’d be right.

      1. Texas FFE says:

        Bland and boring? You must be thinking of the dashboard on the Tesla Model 3.

        1. bro1999 says:

          The 3 dash is not “bland and boring (and cheap looking)”.
          It is “minimalist and clean”. Come on, get the Elon-terminology right! 😉

        2. Get Real says:

          Blnd better describes your unimaginative and repetitive whining anti-Tesla trollig here on InsideEvs.

          Can’t wait until you and the other anti-Tesla trolls here are constantly surrounded by the superior Model 3s as you drive arond!

          1. FFE 1 says:

            +1 – these guys need to get a life

            1. Brian says:

              LOL! So anyone who has anything unflattering to say about Tesla is an anti-Tesla troll? The Model 3 dash IS bland and boring IMO. And in his as well. For those who like the minimalist design, more power to you.

              1. DJ says:

                Yes, that is exactly what they are saying. They all have to buy Teslas so they can associate with other like people. Only way many of them likely ever will get to make any friends.

                Sad I know, but you hey if it’s what they need to do, it’s what they need to do so…

                On topic, I really am kind of digging the new Leaf.

          2. AlphaEdge says:

            He was joking. Lighten up!

      2. cmina says:

        “It looks utterly bland and boring”

        Sounds about right. Thought the same when the spyshot came out:

    4. Lou Grinzo says:

      I like the look of the L2, but I also like the look of my 2013 L. Very different, to be sure, but I find them both appealing.

    5. speculawyer says:

      Yep….dull but better than frog eyes. It better have a low price because it can’t compete with the Model 3 on looks.

      1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

        I guess it’s just me, but I prefer the looks of this Leaf 2.0 to the rather odd-looking, shark-nosed TM3.

        De gustibus non est disputandum.

        1. AlphaEdge says:

          Take your trolling elsewhere! This a pro-Tesla comment section, even on Leaf articles! 😉

          All kidding aside, I think the new Leaf looks awesome also. Very nice design.

        2. James says:

          No arguing about taste! I agree totally.

          CAT OUT OF THE BAG Dept. :

          While my take is that this New LEAF render is probably spot on – that is the top tier model for sure. Expect maybe non-two-tone paint on the entry levels. The wheels on a lot of the mules look more conventional 5 spoke.

          I can say my taste runs more Model 3. I know the minimalist interior of that car has a purpose and I agree with that purpose, thus while not perfect to my eye, I’d buy one and learn to love the touchscreen, I’m sure.

          FWD vs. RWD seems comparing apples to oranges also. The LEAF’s hatchback does come into play when considering these cars. Along with price – Surely LEAF will have a robust following.

          Much improved over gen 1, in my opinion. Has slab sides, especially in photos. High beltline naturally to accomodate bigger and most likely battery pack under floor. Those sills look more like aero cladding add-ons.

          Aesthetics vs. Bolt EV and Ioniq? Ehhh…Ioniq is low slung, but needs much more range. Bolt EV is growing on me, I’d say the looks are a wash with NEW LEAF but perhaps the LEAF a bit nicer on the eye – more hatchback sedan than crossover.

          I remember reading way back at the introduction of gen 1 LEAF that engineers stated Gen II would still be air cooled. They stated this was due to saving money.

          If Gen II LEAF is air cooled, I don’t care how long it’s range is or what price point they landed on, that would be a deal breaker.

          1. William says:

            Not a Lease “deal breaker”. The Leaf batteries on the Newer 30 kWh models, Fastcharge at the 40 kW Maximum rate, a full 100+ amps, up to 75% of battery capacity.

      2. Brave Lil' Toaster says:

        No, it’s competing with the M3 on *trunk space*.

        They’re not even in the same market segment. Geez. You might as well try to compare a Mazda Miata to a Chrysler Pacifica.

    6. Mark.ca says:

      This looks better than the Bolt…so far so good!

  2. Texas FFE says:

    It looks solid and attractive. Throw in the fact that it’s going to have a lot of autonomous features and it starts to get exciting. I’m going to be watching this one closely.

  3. Texas FFE says:

    I really hope the 2018 Leaf comes with a CCS charging option to help support the development of a common charging infrastructure in the United States.

    1. jelloslug says:

      I would not count on it.

      1. Will says:

        At this point most charge station and Nissan dealers have chamdeo

      2. Texas FFE says:

        Nissan has been installing dual platform (CHAdeMO/CCS) chargers at dealerships all over the country. There has to be some reason Nissan is investing in the added cost of dual platform chargers. Of course there could be many reasons but I hope it’s because Nissan plans to building cars that use CCS.

        1. Will says:

          Nissan here in Cleveland area have 6 dealerships with chamedeo compare to one tesla supercharger

          1. philip d says:

            The Supercharger network is designed for convenient fast road trip charging along the network of interstates not for around town charging. It charges at double the rate of CHAdeMO.

            For around town charging you can charge a Tesla at destination chargers as well as every CHAdeMO charger with the plug adapter.

            So Tesla has way more options since it has the proprietary Supercharger network and Tesla destination chargers as well as the CHAdeMO network and L2 chargers.

            1. will says:

              Well I don’t own a tesla and l won’t own one anytime soon where it’s price point is at. Tesla are wonderful cars but not everyone needs tesla. This is turning out to be iPhone debate 10 years ago. Android won that battle of course

      3. William says:

        Nissan bean counters are definitely not counting on it either. It would be kind of nice to have the option for $500. extra, if you wanted it on the 200+ mile 2018-19 SV and/or SL.

    2. bro1999 says:

      Spy shots already have shown the same CHAdeMO/J1772 setup.

      1. PHEVvsBEV says:

        Is the charging port hatch sized such that it could accommodate the CCS inlet?

        1. bro1999 says:

          Nope. Unless they made the J1772 a SAE combo, no room for a 3rd recepticle.

          Makes me wonder how hard it would be to wire a car with a CHAdeMO AND CCS setup…

    3. Francis L says:

      From what I could see, most charger offers the 2 standards. The other one are usually chademo only. I wouldn’t see why Nissan would offer a CCS, especially that the car companies behind chademo seems more aggressive to install those.

    4. stimpy says:

      I find it very odd that Nissan would choose to continue with Chademo now they are the ONLY manufacturer left in the US.

      Having a single model car using it’s own plug doesn’t make any sense. I would actually avoid the Leaf for this reason alone!

      1. me says:

        I take it you would never buy a Tesla either, then?

        Chademo makes sense for the Leaf due to the number of chargers that exist in Japan.

        1. Rob Stark says:

          Model 3, Model S and Model X

          Three Models.

          The CHAdeMO “network” is not the Supercharger Network.

          1. Will says:

            King of North.

        2. speculawyer says:

          “Chademo makes sense for the Leaf due to the number of chargers that exist in Japan.”

          Sure, but you can easily put in different plugs for different regions like they do with the AC plug.

        3. philip d says:

          Tesla can use CHAdeMO as well with an adapter plug. So with Tesla you get the best of both worlds.

        4. AlphaEdge says:

          > Chademo makes sense for the Leaf due to the number of chargers that exist in Japan.

          Yeah well the Pacific ocean prevents driving in one and then the other, so adopting a different standard here, then there, is just fine.

    5. speculawyer says:

      “I really hope the 2018 Leaf comes with a CCS charging option to help support the development of a common charging infrastructure in the United States.”

      This. Nissan should include both Chademo and CCS plugs and gradually transition over. It would be better for EVERYONE if there were one open common DC-fast-charge standard. Chademo won Japan but it is not going to win in the USA with pretty much only Nissan support….The Honda Clarity EV uses SAE-CCS!

      I think Honda going to CCS is telling.

      1. William says:

        Honda Clarity EV, is a range limited also ran. They are in need of a 100+ mile EV and yesterday.

    6. Brave Lil' Toaster says:

      That would have been like the VHS standard converting to Betamax halfway through the game. Check Plugshare.com again. There’s far more ChaDeMo chargers out there than CCS, and most of the CCS chargers are dual standard.

  4. Alan says:

    Have already decided to get one, it fits the bill in a lot of ways.

    It looks practical
    Should have sufficient range
    Shouldn’t cost the earth
    Should be quite efficient and cheap to run
    I won’t have to wait 2 years to get one !

    1. speculawyer says:

      Enjoy! I look forward to learning more about the new LEAF…especially the range the price tag.

    2. Mark.ca says:

      Alot of “should” there but hopefully they will deliver.

  5. Mark C says:

    I just want to know what the plan is for battery thermal management and range.

    It also looks better than the outgoing model to me.

    1. KUD says:

      Thermal management is my concern too

    2. Mister G says:

      Yes thermal management is critical my 2016 Leaf SV lost 3 bars of range at 22k miles in central Florida

      1. DJ says:

        Seriously. This is a huge concern and is why cars without it are so popular for leases.

        Do you fast charge a lot? I thought the new batteries were supposed to fix a lot of that but 3 bars at 22k is terrible. Here is to hoping you can beat it up some more so that the battery warranty kicks in 😀

        1. Mister G says:

          I know I’m pissed off…I only level 2 charge and quick charge about 3-4 times a month.

          1. William says:

            Something is definitely going on with your Leaf SV. Are you keeping it on the DC fastcharger after you are reaching 80% battery capacity? Are you are taking it above 95% battery capacity, on the DC fastcharger, where it will automatically turn off you charging event at around the low 30amp charge rate? You are Definitely going to get a new battery under warranty at the rate you are degrading. Get Leaf Spy Pro and a OBD 2 Dongle for your smart phone, and keep up with the 2016 30 kWh battery bloggers on mynissanleaf.com

      2. Terry says:

        That’s interesting as I have the 2011 with the 2015 “lizard battery” that was swapped in under warranty. I live in Phoenix…I have 36k miles on the new battery. Have lost zero range. I’d be curious to know what’s causing the disparity. For reference I charge at home and work. Both L2. At work the car is on the top of a parking structure in the sun and heat all day 5 days a week. At home I garage but it’s still over a 100 inside.

        1. Mister G says:

          I think I got a lemon…I L2 charge every night in garage temp is about 86 to 92 degrees in summer months 65 to 79 during winter months, I dcfc about 3-4 times per month. My leaf is in direct sunlight all day while at work. I occasionally L2 charge at businesses. I’m not happy good tning its a lease.

    3. georgeS says:

      “I just want to know what the plan is for battery thermal management and range. ”

      -Mark C

      The long range battery will be made by LG Chem. They are pretty big a good thermal management inluding liquid cooled cells.

      The BoltEV pack is rather ingenious in its cooling scheme. It uses a “cooling plate” with metal fins that the cells sit on.

      Details here:
      http://insideevs.com/chevy-bolt-200-mile-ev-battery-cooling-and-gearbox-details-bower/

      IMO the Gen2 Leafs long range pack will be liquid cooled!

      1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

        “IMO the Gen2 Leafs long range pack will be liquid cooled!”

        I very much hope you’re right, but if so, then Nissan has been very successful in keeping that news from leaking!

      2. James says:

        We can hope!

  6. Martin T. says:

    As per others – looks conventional enough hatch back to be a big hit for Nissan /Renault, now we wait for the specs and details (the important stuff) that will make or break it against the competition. Bring it on I say & Well done Nissan / Renault.

  7. Brandon says:

    Am I the only one who’s also hoping they put 200hp in it as well so it’s keeping up with Model 3 and Bolt in terms of fun-to-drive? This is the electric erra now, we don’t have to sacrifice power for efficiency.

    I want the new Leaf, IF and only IF it is fast and has more than 200 mile range. It other wise looks like a normal hatcback which is EXACTLY what I want from my daily driver.

    1. mx says:

      Yes that would be nice, as it won’t affect efficiency too much.

    2. bro1999 says:

      0 chance of a base Leaf having 200 HP. And even if a bigger battery Leaf is released, I really doubt Nissan would give it a big enough motor for 200 HP. They’d favor range over performance.

      1. Viking79 says:

        So why not get a Bolt EV with range and performance?

        1. georgeS says:

          “So why not get a Bolt EV with range and performance?”

          -Viking79

          Bigger car, larger dimensions and auto steer

          1. Mark.ca says:

            …looks better too.

          2. James says:

            Oh, the future Bolt EV vs. Gen II LEAF battles are simmering on the stove!…..

            Bolt EV seriously needs ACC at minimum, lower price.

            I’m happy because FINALLY we won’t have an “apple vs. oranges” competition. First LEAF was compared to Volt – two distinctly different vehicles in many ways. Now people insist on Bolt vs. Model 3. Same deal.

            Now we will have a true Mustang vs. Camaro type rivalry we can debate upon, argue and get all angry with each other about! 🙂

            Fun times ahead.

            Truly, though…FINALLY some competition within the same segment!

            1. William says:

              In four weeks, the Leaf/Bolt bickering will begin!

      2. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

        “0 chance of a base Leaf having 200 HP. And even if a bigger battery Leaf is released, I really doubt Nissan would give it a big enough motor for 200 HP. They’d favor range over performance.”

        Yup, I’d almost bet on it. Nissan is not going to make the Leaf a “performance” car even if it could.

        1. Spider-Dan says:

          I think it’s folly for Nissan to try to compete with GM or Tesla on performance. The Gen2 Leaf should be an aggressive attempt to undercut the competitors on price per mile of range.

  8. Francis L says:

    Look like that EVs have to use 2 colors : we saw the i3, Bolt, Kia Soul, and now the Leaf!

    I do like it, and at least it doesn’t look like a i3 cheap copy (looking at you Bolt).

  9. Andrew says:

    I drive a ’16 LEAF, and yes… I get that the looks are not for everyone. That said, I’m a 40something office worker who uses it as basic transportation.

    I choose to spend my money on other things at this stage in my life. The lease is so cheap on it, plus my employer has free L2… I’m basically being paid to drive it anyway. I also live in Iowa, so the lack of TMS is pretty much a moot point.

    I would say I fit into that bracket mentioned the other day in the big Tesla thread: I am the bottom feeding/low dollar BEV buyer 🙂

    I do think the new LEAF looks good though, and will likely capture a lot more sales from people who didn’t like the LEAF/Juke design language.

    Anxiously await the final specifications on this vehicle. I love my LEAF, but with ZERO QC options in Iowa (execpt for Tesla SC’s) I am land locked here in Des Moines. If my next car has a 200mi range, I’d be good to go to drive down to KC. Right now, I have to use my wifes gas powered VW to do so.

    1. James says:

      My friend who bought a ’13 Ford Focus EV for $13,000 – and that included custom wheels – feels the same way.

    2. Kevin C says:

      No need for self-deprecation.
      You are frugal and wise😀 good sir.

  10. Jason says:

    1. Range – with 2 options (40 and 60kwh)
    2. Liquid cooled battery
    3. Price under 30K for lower range model, Under 35K for higher range model. Before incentives.

    If Nissan can finally get these 3 factors right they will have a hugely successful electric car.

    I really couldn’t care less about the horsepower and chademo is fine (nearly every fast charger in North America has either both CCS and Chademo or just chademo, it costs very little to put both plugs).

    1. Lou Grinzo says:

      Agreed, but the pricing part of this product (as with any vehicle that has a sizable battery) is dicey.

      If you’re making the price decision at Nissan, what do you assume the price of batteries will be over the life of this iteration of the car, and what does that say you can/should do to remain competitive? For example, if you are highly confident battery prices will drop a lot, say 30 to 50%, over the next 5 years, do you price the 2018 L2 such that you barely break even or lose money the first few years and make a profit once battery prices decline? You really don’t want to cut the price of the car after a couple of years, since that creates a very destructive expectation among customers.

    2. georgeS says:

      “1. Range – with 2 options (40 and 60kwh)
      2. Liquid cooled battery”

      I vaguely remember an article that said the smaller battery will not be liquid cooled

    3. speculawyer says:

      If they hit those specs, it would be GREAT. But I doubt they will hit them. I hope they prove me wrong.

  11. me says:

    Don’t know why everyone knocks the Leaf’s looks. It looks no better or worse than about 80% of the other cars on the road. I wouldn’t even say that Teslas look any better (they look like boring sedans).

    And if you’re in the US, CCS vs Chademo doesn’t matter because the charging infrastructure for both is virtually non-existent and will be for years. They pretty much only exist at dealers… exactly where you don’t need them. We need folks to build these things alongside highways in the middle of nowhere, just like Tesla’s doing.

    1. John Ray says:

      I wold disagree with you on the Model S. It does actually have presence. The 3 however looks like a Chrysler 200 or Dodge Neon. I doubt it will garner much attention at the stoplight.

      I would wager the new Leaf might attract more eyes. I saw a white Fiesta ST at a stoplight yesterday and I couldn’t stop staring.

      1. James says:

        Yeah, John, but you like girls who wear nurse’s smocks too! 🙂

        Me? I prefer a more exotic look – the Model 3 is classy to my eyes while being understated and swift-looking.

        – “that Fiesta really caught my eye!”…hehe John you got a L 🙂 L out of me with that one!

  12. David Lane says:

    Looking good. I always like Japanese hot hatch styling.

    I hope it gives the Bolt a run for its money in terms of acceleration and range. I also hope that it is at least a tad bit bigger in interior space compared to Bolt.
    Bolt is an awesome ground breaking machine and I’m hopeful this will match it in every way.

  13. Brett says:

    This design makes me want to save the environment by riding a bicycle instead. But in a world where the new Cruella Deville Prius design is a top seller, I’m sure this another stroke of unbelievable design genius.

  14. Absidu says:

    Tipping point will be when it will be economically sensible for ride-sharing companies and it will be very soon.

    1. William says:

      That is the Brass Ring that will be grabbed by Nissan, if they keep true to form. I would think Nissan has done their home on this huge upcoming market segment.

      1. William says:

        “Homework”, like the kind my dog ate before I made it class late, yet again!

        1. William says:

          “To class”, ok, I’m Leafing it alone, from now on!

  15. Priusmaniac says:

    You can still see the present Leaf contours in it. It is not a brand new design but more of a facelift.

    1. bro1999 says:

      Yep, a 1.75 revision versus a total clean slate like GM did with the Gen 2 Volt, Bolt EV, etc….

    2. Derek says:

      I dont see any proof it is just a facelift, other than dimensions appear about the same… and similar dimensions is great news, Leaf is very spacious without having a huge footprint. Its about a foot longer than Bolt.

  16. (⌐■_■) Trollnonymous says:

    An AWD offering would be nice.

  17. The photo looks like it has a glass roof (optionally, at least). I wonder if this would increase the rear headroom?

  18. Ambulator says:

    I think frogs are cute, so I prefer the current looks of the Leaf. It’s not really important, though. What is important is not having a black roof, which the new Leaf may fail at.

    1. Brett says:

      I agree. Surely some people will like the roof. I’m hoping it’s an option. It might be a swell looking car if the roof color were to match.

      Even I don’t like the look, I’ll go ahead and get one if the specs are good.

    2. James says:

      The gen 1 Volt had the black roof. GM axed that because it took 2 complete painting processes to make it – one for the black roof and one complete second pass for the body color!

      Added to it is that it’s an EV which has a need for lower interior temps to minimize AC use. Black absorbs heat so that LEAF will need more energy to keep it’s passengers comfortable. Not a good thing.

      I do admit the look is fetching, though.

      Maybe a solar roof AND the black treatment will be available. As you may know. 3rd gen Prius had a tech package that included a solar roof. It’s purpose had nothing to do with adding driving range. The Prius’solar roof topped up the 12V battery and powered a small fan that vented under the car for those hot parking lots. In this, a solar roof on LEAF could condition the interior without using the drive battery so you can enter a cool car and your butt won’t stick to the seats. A very cool application in my opinion – if it’s not prohibitively expensive!

    I like it. Not as “sexy” as a Tesla Model S… but then, very few cars are! Much nicer looking than the Tesla Model 3.

    Kudos to Nissan for greatly improving the styling of the Leaf. The Leaf no longer looks like a pregnant whale dorkmobile… or a Prius. (But I repeat myself. 😉 )

    It doesn’t look too bad really. I suspect it’s “play” will be “Less range/performance than a Bolt, but cheaper, bigger and nicer interior”…essentially a practical value play (which is probably a smart play for Nissan).

    Indeed, I think we are really starting to see the “classic” car segments appearing in the “EV” space and so folks will stop comparing $25K PHEVS with $150K EVs.

    We need to know Nissan will have great lease deals from day one. It would royally suck if they take GM’s attitude of crazy- expensive lease options.

    What do you think?

    I think the design is trendy and will not age well. In 3 years time people all be talking about it like they are now talking about the current LEAF.

    Btw, I drive the current LEAF and don’t give a sh*t how it looks. I like it very much and where I live, heat induced battery degradation is no issue.

      Same here for our 2015 LEAF here in Michigan. Virtually no battery degradation after 21 months.

        Checking in from Iowa (where it actually gets quite hot/humid in summer). After 18 months in my ’16 30 kWh, LEAF Spy reports SoH is 94%. Right around 11000 miles on the car, no QC in Iowa to only L2 charges.

        When I got the car, it was at 97%.

    I need more range…Hurry up.

    1. William says:

      With Nissan, range IS the waiting game. I don’t think Nissan will match the Bolts 238 mile range, for at least another 6 months.

  24. Anon says:

    Better than GM’s Econo-Styled Bolt, but not by that much…

    A step in the right direction. Making a Xover, is a good way to maximize the investment in the updated drivetrain. Very similar to what Tesla did with Model X / Y. Its good to see old dogs like Nissan, learning new tricks. 😉

  25. Cid says:

    This is a solid design that’ll appeal to the masses. If they add range + significant price discount below Bolt and Tesla 3, then it’ll be a volume mover.

    1. William says:

      The Leaf family will be the Volume Mover. The rest of the herd are going to come in the next 18-24 months as Tesla gets the production ball up to speed, so to speak.

    277,000 Nissan Leaf’s sold so far.

    1. James says:

      That’s a lot of LEAFs, only over 7 1/2 years and worldwide? Not so much.

      120,000 – 200,000 per year in N. America? That would be significant.

  27. Brave Lil' Toaster says:

    “it’s hard to imagine someone who would prefer the design of the soon-to-be-discontinued Leaf over its replacement”

    Meet my wife then.

    “It looks bland and boring. It’s trying to look like every other car out there. I like the look of our Leaf better. It’s unique and cute.”

    Some people prefer cars that look cute instead of muscle-car-y.

    She even likes the look of the old Leaf over the Model 3. Especially the nose cone.

  28. Gordon says:

    It looks like it has a wider stance. Are there any dimensions available?
