As well as boasting a 26 percent increase in driving range (250 km on a single charge) via a new 30 kWh battery, the new MY16 LEAF is changing the connectivity landscape with an improved version of the brand’s acclaimed NissanConnect EV infotainment system.
Nissan marked the event with a live ‘unboxing’ of the new MY16 Nissan LEAF 30 kWh while debuting a new film highlighting a raft of new updates available on the latest edition of the bestseller: https://youtu.be/vh4qHRt6s68
The ‘unboxing’ marks the first time Nissan has exhibited at the show, closing the gap between the automotive and technology worlds, and showcasing the manufacturers’ innovative approach to in-car technologies.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles for Nissan Europe, said: “What better place to showcase our latest technology than alongside other leading lights in innovation. Not only is Nissan the leader of the electric vehicle revolution, we are also committed to bringing cutting-edge technology, connectivity and e-mobility to the mass market”
The enhanced NissanConnect EV telematics system is at the forefront of accessible in-vehicle technologies, allowing Nissan LEAF owners to control many of the vehicle’s features at the touch of a button. Providing a suite of digital alerts and remote access features, owners can remotely manage and check the status of the battery, set timers for charging, remotely switch on climate control and find local charging stations.
In addition to this, the new operating system also allows users to analyse their driving patterns, including energy usage and CO2 saved per journey.
“In a fully connected, fully mobile world, in-vehicle connectivity is an absolute must for today’s drivers. That is why Nissan is proud to be at the forefront of developing efficient and reliable in-vehicle connected technologies that are available and accessible to all,” added Dunsmore.
