The 2018 Nissan Leaf has been spotted completely undisguised ahead of its September 6 debut, thanks to these images posted by Broom, where the electric vehicle is being filmed for what is likely some promotional materials.

Let’s get the obvious out of the way – the second-generation Leaf is miles apart from its predecessor when it comes the way it looks. Despite the low-res images, we can clearly see the new Leaf is a lot more aggressive in appearance compared to the roundish first-gen model.

Nissan’s trademark V-motion grille takes its spot up front and centre, flanked by sharper headlights that were previously teased. Also visible are the new taillights, which appear to be reminiscent of those found on the Volvo V40.

Another interesting aspect of the Leaf’s exterior is the two-tone colour scheme featuring a white body as well as a gloss black roof and tailgate. Though it may appear to be a longer car based on the profile, we’ll have to wait for the Leaf’s official debut for official figures.

Other unknowns include the size of the battery that powers it, along with the output of its electric powertrain. The current Leaf packs a 30-kW battery that offers up to 250 km (NEDC) of range on a single charge.

So far, Nissan has revealed the new Leaf will be equipped with ProPILOT Assist driver-assistance technology, allowing for some level of autonomous driving and self-parking as well. Another “revolutionary technology” is the Leaf’s e-Pedal, which enables one-pedal driving.
