Nissan unveils upgraded 2013 Leaf
Nissan has given its lovable green car, the Leaf, an overhaul. The new 2013 version of the car sports a whopping 142 mile range on a single charge as per the JC08 test mode, increasing nearly by 20 miles from the previous Leaf. The 2013 model comes with regenerative brakes and lower weight high-voltage unit that help increase the car’s efficiency. That apart, the car’s motor now uses a combined powertrain unit with integrated functions, streamlined battery module and case structure.
Range apart, the car’s interior has been given cosmetic changes too, with the dashboard now sporting a battery meter in percentage and the car being made available in three more colors, Dark Metal Gray, Brilliant White Pearl and White. And that’s not all. For those who prefer a simpler ride, Nissan has also unveiled a lower end model of the car called the S Grade, with no frills attached.
