Nissan presented an open-air version of its new 2018 Nissan LEAF in Tokyo today at a forum on zero-emission mobility. The reveal was a way for the company to mark 100,000 sales of the model in Japan since its debut in 2010.
The new generation of the Nissan LEAF is just now populating dealerships and roads in Canada, as well as making its way into municipal electric-car fleets like in Montreal.
Its new features include improved range and advanced Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies such as e-Pedal, the ProPILOT driver assistance system and ProPILOT Park.
At the event unveiling the concept model, which there are no current plans to commercially produce, no details were provided regarding its makeup and the modifications that were made to it. Immediately noticeable, though, are the absence of rear doors and a raised rear bench seat.
Here’s hoping Nissan puts some serious thought into developing an open-top LEAF for commercialization. It could be a natural modern-age successor to the departing VW Beetle cabriolet!
