2018 Nissan Leaf Glendale Heights IL
It’s not that drivers don’t want electric vehicles, so much as they have traditionally been more difficult to fit into modern lifestyles. It’s hard to argue with efficiency, up until you find a vehicle just doesn’t work with your commute and charging times can take hours. It can be a commitment that not every driver wants to make, even considering the feel-good knowledge that you’re offering up zero emissions every time you put foot to pedal. Which for many of us is far too often.
Lowering your carbon footprint and saving on gas are just some of the benefits of the 2018 Nissan Leaf, which you can order here at your Glendale Heights IL dealership, Glendale Nissan. Aside from the natural things you love about electric vehicles, the redesigned model also offers a modern appearance that doesn’t try too hard to “look electric.” Instead, Nissan has made the model into an attractive hatchback with slim headlights, a chiseled hood and contrast-colored roof and C-pillars.
2018 Nissan Leaf range and fuel economy
A fresh look allows the 2018 Nissan Leaf to compete for your attention in a way it may not have before, but at the center of the model is still the advanced engineering that makes it a top option for those looking to choose an EV over gasoline options. The Leaf is better than ever in a number of ways outside of its appearance, starting with its price tag. The model now has a starting MSRP of $29,990, which is $690 less than the previous 2017 Nissan Leaf.
Despite a lower price, the model has an improved driving range up to 150 miles and offers impressive standard features like ProPilot Assist and e-Pedal. The e-Pedal is a unique feature that effectively allows you to stop your vehicle more quickly by releasing the accelerator, rather than coasting. It works so effectively, you can even stop on hills. What about coasting? The e-Pedal reduces speed if you simply ease off the pedal, while releasing it entirely will allow the vehicle to stop.
ProPilot Assist is a new feature that uses automatic cruise control and steering assist to maintain your lane on single-lane highways. It’s not quite autonomous driving, as you have to keep your hands on the wheel and pay attention while you drive, but it can help with driving fatigue, especially on longer trips.
