The premiere of the 2018 Nissan LEAF is already behind us, and compared to the outgoing model, the EV looks great, and should be well received comparatively speaking.

Its cheaper, can travel much further, and has a less polarizing look.

So, let's have a closer look at the new LEAF - both inside and out on a few comprehensive walk around videos.

The new LEAF is to be offered in three trim-levels, as well as broad portfolio of colors (see a gallery of some of them below), with some countries also netting two-tone versions.

As always, black is always the sensible choice (bonus points from our Editor-in-Chief incoming for saying that), but the red looks amazing as well.

At first, the new 2018 LEAF will be offered with a 40 kWh battery (estimated at 150 miles of EPA range) in January (October in Japan), but a higher performance, longer range ~60 kWh version is under development now, and will arrive next Fall as a 2019 (good for ~225 miles of range).
