2020 Nissan Leaf surely follows market demands, and those are not simple and small at all. Since electric cars have undergone expansion and great improvements, there is a second (or even the third) generation of it that expect future buyers. There are many novelties that the manufacturer has announced. Firstly, they will upgrade the design, but not at the expense of the functionality. On the other hand, they are working on improving the engine, that should be the best in range.
- There is the new electric engine.
- The design is simpler and modest.
- The cabin is not described and designed yet.
- The price is still not the best in range.
Since the current model was known to futuristic and very aerodynamical design, 2020 Nissan Leaf comes as surprisingly simple and even traditional. According to rumors, there should not be many modernistic details on the chassis as before and it should look at every other city car. Aiming to reach the level of Chevrolet Bolt in design and engine efficiency, it could be even simpler and modest. However, the most important is to be well driven and small for usual parking in crowdy streets.
Even though we were not being able to see the cabin of 2020 Nissan Leaf, it should be futuristic and attractive inside. There is usually great high-technology inside of the electric cars, so we expect the same here. The manufacturer showed that they wanted to make something that is attractive to young buyers, so all expectations are on that side.
According to the manufacturer, 2020 Nissan Leaf is only a part of their aims to reach the magical number of a 300-mile range of driving per charge. As Kazuo Yajima, Renault-Nissan Alliance Global Director of EV & HEV technology said, the future of the automotive industry is in a fully hybrid engine. There should not be plug-in hybrid models anymore in the future. To reach that point of the driving, especially in making the cars for city driving purposes, there should fulfill two conditions. The first one is a lot of charging stations in the city, while the second one is the new electric engine that could be driven for a long time without charging. This is exactly what Nissan has done in the past few years. They worked on improving the first version of the electric engine. However, the current model has an engine with less than 100-mile range which was not that appealing, but still quite enough for most of the city drivers that bought it. Now, the model should be even better than Tesla 3 in this range.
2020 Nissan Leaf Release Date and Price
It is not easy to predict what will be the main advantage of the future 2020 Nissan Leaf. It seems that the manufacturer counts on the low price for the high value, but that is not exactly the case with this car, at least not for now. The price should be higher than $30,000 while the model still has many failures that put in in the middle of the list of attractive futuristic electric cars. Do not forget that the manufacturer even planned to make the model more traditional and old-fashioned, which could reject some fans. However, time will say which will attract the buyers in the future the most.
