It's just a lone image of the "faux front grill", but bit by bit we're starting to see what the next-generation LEAF will look like.

Found just above the "grill", in the same basic location as the original LEAF, is the EV's charging port.

Nissan has done a remarkable job in keeping actual details of the next-gen LEAF internal; that is other than the spyshots we have been able to capture ourselves (like most recently of the interior).

We can speculate, but there really is no confirmed information on the 2018 LEAF, beyond the fact that it's coming soon. We are certain it will boast more range than today's LEAF (via 2 battery options ultimately) and that it will be priced very competitively, but beyond that it's anyone's guess at this point.

As for the September 5th debut of the new LEAF that Nissan is confirming today, that is actually happening at a special event in Tokyo (so technically, its really happening on the 6th at the point of origin).
