Nissan took to Twitter this morning to tease the next-generation Leaf EV. The first-generation Leaf was among the first commercially available EV’s on the market back when it launched in 2010. Unfortunately, Nissan has left the Leaf largely untouched since then, so naturally it is making a big deal out of the new one.
Of course, there isn’t a lot of insight gained from the teaser shot. The shot exposes the headlight, which clearly appears slimmer and full LED than today’s Leaf. The overall design is expected to borrow cues from the Maxima and Murano, bringing the withering Leaf up to this generation of Nissan design.
Aside from today’s teaser, information on the new Leaf is pretty scarce. It is expected that Nissan will up the range closer to the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Tesla Model 3 and perhaps offer two different battery capacities on the car.
The rest of the details will have to wait until the car’s reveal later this year.
