Time for unboxing new Nissan LEAF

Time for unboxing new Nissan LEAF

Nissan came up with the novel idea of presenting LEAF at the 2016 GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona where we typically see new smartphones.

It's sign of times that shows like GSMA, or CES in Las Vegas, attract EV makers to present new technologies.

The main topic of the Nissan's mobile device is the new NissanConnect EV infotainment system.

"The ‘unboxing’ marks the first time Nissan has exhibited at the show, closing the gap between the automotive and technology worlds, and showcasing the manufacturers’ innovative approach to in-car technologies.

The enhanced NissanConnect EV telematics system is at the forefront of accessible in-vehicle technologies, allowing Nissan LEAF owners to control many of the vehicle’s features at the touch of a button. Providing a suite of digital alerts and remote access features, owners can remotely manage  and check the status of the battery, set timers for charging, remotely switch on climate control and find local charging stations.

In addition to this, the new operating system also allows users to analyse their driving patterns, including energy usage and CO2 saved per journey."

Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles for Nissan Europe, said:

“What better place to showcase our latest technology than alongside other leading lights in innovation. Not only is Nissan the leader of the electric vehicle revolution, we are also committed to bringing cutting-edge technology, connectivity and e-mobility to the mass market”.

“In a fully connected, fully mobile world, in-vehicle connectivity is an absolute must for today’s drivers. That is why Nissan is proud to be at the forefront of developing efficient and reliable in-vehicle connected technologies that are available and accessible to all."
