Just Warming Up: The New Nissan LEAF

 

Feb. 16 – Rolle, Switzerland – As the new Nissan LEAF 30kWh goes on sale across Europe – with improved range and enhanced features – Nissan released a stunning short film revealing the car from a sheath of ice in Norefjell, Norway.

Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle now delivers up to 250km (155mi) of driving range on a single charge, 26 percent further than before, and comes with the latest evolution of the NissanConnect EV infotainment system on Acenta and Tekna trims. This includes improvements to the remote defrost feature, superior functionality and greater connectivity.

The film begins with a silhouette of the LEAF cocooned in ice, set against the breathtaking Scandes Mountains. At 65mm (2.5 in.) thick, the ice proceeds to melt away, gradually revealing the new Nissan LEAF 30kWh in all its glory.

Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles, Nissan Europe, said, “The new Nissan LEAF 30kWh is a great example of Nissan’s pioneering and innovative spirit. We constantly strive to push the boundaries of what is possible with zero emission technology – going further so our customers can go further.”

The Nissan LEAF was frozen into its icy blanket by Norwegian ice specialist, Jack Stensland, CEO, a.k.a. Mr. Iceman, said, “I have never frozen an electric car before, but it sounded like an interesting challenge, and I think the end result is stunning.”

The film also highlights the reliability and durability of the new Nissan LEAF 30kWh, which undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it is capable of withstanding even the most challenging driving conditions.

For customers in truly testing conditions like those in Norefjell, Nissan also offers a specially engineered Nordic Pack which includes a battery heater to counter the effects of the extreme low temperatures.
