The new Nissan LEAF flawlessly passed Bjørn Nyland's e-Pedal challenge on a slope and did well in parking itself.

The first video shows that the 2018 LEAF is able to stop and hold its place on a slope in both directions, without touching the brakes.

Moreover, the start is soft and easy mode. This hold feature should be a new standard for all future cars, EVs included

The second video presents automatic parking tests - both perpendicular and parallel.

LEAF enables you to easily choose a parking spot and does everything else itself (even changing driving directions), but braking is a little bit too intense.

The around view monitor also makes it super easy to park manually.

In the case of parallel parking, sometimes there was trouble with detecting the right spot between the cars (it works when the spot is selected manually though).
