Nissan is carefully updating the Leaf, which was once the world's best-selling electric vehicle. This year, the Japanese have revised the series, but the technology has remained unchanged. For the 2022 model year, the Nissan LEAF's exterior is refreshed with only a few new details.

The 2022 Nissan Leaf will go on sale on April 1st with a starting price of 29,000 euros. The electric vehicle then receives new 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels finished in a slick black finish. In addition, the wheels and front grille are decorated with the new company logo. Along with six single-color and five two-tone finishes, the collection will soon expand to include two more finishes: "mature Universal Blue" and "lively Magnetic Blue."

Otherwise, the Nissan Leaf remains available with two battery packs offering a WLTP-certified range of 270 km or 385 km. The electric drive produces 110 kW (150 hp) or 160 kW (217 hp), depending on the variant. Nissan highlights that the second generation of electric vehicles that debuted in 2017 is still equipped with cutting-edge technology. For example, automatic accelerating and braking and keeping a safe distance from the car in front are all feasible with the "ProPilot" technology. Additional comfort is provided by the "e-Pedal," which enables the electric vehicle to be accelerated, decelerated, and stopped with only one pedal.

Nissan continues to promote its "NissanConnect" system, which integrates smartphones via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to provide contemporary infotainment and seamless communication. For example, remote control of functions such as the air conditioning is possible via the NissanConnect app. Additionally, customers may pair the Nissan LEAF with their Amazon Alexa smart home device.

"As electric vehicles gain mainstream, Nissan is ushering in a new era of electric transportation. The Leaf aided in developing Nissan's vision for capable contemporary transportation. Now, we are capitalizing on our electric experience and releasing a total of 23 new electrified vehicles by 2030, including 15 pure electric automobiles (similar to the 2021 Nissan Leaf)," Nissan manager Arnaud Charpentier explained.

According to rumors, the Nissan Leaf will be phased out by the middle of the decade and replaced by another electric crossover vehicle. The technological foundation will be given by Nissan's shared electric vehicle platform CMF-EV with the other members of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi automobile alliance.
