The New Nissan LEAF 2.ZERO is an exclusive launch-edition model for the New Nissan LEAF – which is available to buy this January. In addition to an extended all-electric range of up to 235 miles NEDC – thanks to a larger 40kWh lithium-ion battery – the New Nissan LEAF 2.ZERO introduces ProPILOT technology to the Nissan LEAF line-up.

ProPILOT is a collection of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) that makes driving easier and safer. In addition to adaptive cruise control and lane-assist on motorways, ProPILOT can automatically slow your vehicle to a halt in stop-start traffic, before moving again as the traffic flows. It’s effectively a cruise control that takes the stress out of traffic jams.

ProPILOT Park automatically guides the New Nissan LEAF 2.ZERO into a suitable parking spot with a single-button push. It takes control of all steering, acceleration, braking and gear selection, making parking more precise and completely hassle-free.

ProPILOT joins an easy-driving feature that is standard on the New Nissan LEAF. The revolutionary e-Pedal lets you drive using only the accelerator. Press it down, and you get 148bhp and 320Nm from the powerful electric motor. Ease off, and regenerative braking provides enough frictional force to gradually slow the car to a stop. e-Pedal makes driving easier and more enjoyable – and as regenerative braking puts energy back into the battery, it all helps to extend the overall range.

Just another reason why the New Nissan LEAF is leading the way for electric vehicles that are stress-free and efficient to drive.
