The New LEAF 2.ZERO launch edition is limited to just 1,500 cars and is available in two colours – Spring Cloud and Pearl Black. Standard specification includes 17” alloy wheels front and rear heated black suede-effect bio-fabric seats, automatic air conditioning and a 7” touchscreen infotainment with six speaker sound system.Additionally the new LEAF is the first Nissan model in Europe to be equipped with the brand’s autonomous ProPILOT technology with Intelligent Cruise Control and the new e-Pedal.
ProPILOT uses the steering, braking and acceleration to assist the driver within single lane, low speed traffic and highway cruising scenarios. In slow moving traffic it enables the New LEAF to autonomously slowdown and stop where traffic flow ceases. It will then start to follow the car in front when the flow resumes. Also included is ProPILOT Park for fully autonomous parking.
The e-Pedal technology lets drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop – simply by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator.When the accelerator is fully released, the regenerative and friction braking systems are deployed automatically, bringing the car to a complete stop and harnessing energy to recharge the battery.
