Nissan is preparing to launch the second generation of Leaf. According to our British colleagues from Auto Express, the new model will be available in 2016. 

As you may have read, the design of the Nissan Leaf is its Achilles heel, but the Japanese-based car manufacturer is promising that this will change with the second generation. According to Nissan, the new Leaf will feature a more conventional design with blacked out pillars and with the new front grille seen on the recent Nissan models.

More than that, the upcoming Leaf will be able to travel more before running out of batteries. According to rumors, the new Leaf will be able to travel around 186 miles, with more than 100 miles than the current version. In addition, a cheaper version is in the works so you will be able to choose the car by your regular needs. 

This smaller battery set will also be implemented in Nissan’s premium brand Infiniti. Speaking by them, the LE Concept, seen in April, will come in a production form in mid-2016. These are some great news from the Japanese.
