2019 Nissan LEAF: advanced ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal technologies offer a look into the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility

Nissan LEAF offers a 243-kilometre range3 at an affordable price – with strong performance, striking design and cutting-edge technologies

The 2019 Nissan LEAF again sets the standard in the growing market for mainstream electric vehicles by offering customers great range, advanced technologies and a dynamic design.

Introduced just last year, the all-new second-generation Nissan LEAF continues as the embodiment of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s approach to changing the way cars are driven, powered and integrated into society. The three key aspects of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, exemplified by the 2019 Nissan LEAF, are Nissan Intelligent Driving, Nissan Intelligent Power and Nissan Intelligent Integration.

With its dynamic design and advanced technologies such as ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal, Nissan LEAF continues to be the best-selling 100-per cent, mainstream electric vehicle in Canada and the world.

A second version of the Nissan LEAF is available for the 2019 model year, the LEAF PLUS, with a 62 kWh battery offering up to 3636 kilometres of range.

Nissan Intelligent Driving

Headlining the 2019 Nissan LEAF’s Intelligent Driving technologies are ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal. ProPILOT Assist is a single-lane highway driving assistance technology. Once activated, it can automatically maintain the distance to the vehicle in front, using a speed and distance preset by the driver.

It can also provide steering assistance to help keep the vehicle centered in its lane. If the car in front stops, the ProPILOT Assist system can automatically apply the brakes to help bring the vehicle to a full stop if necessary. If traffic restarts, the car will resume driving when the driver touches the switch again or lightly presses the accelerator to activate ProPILOT Assist. All these functions can help reduce stress when driving on the highway in both heavy and flowing traffic.

Another innovation that enhances the Nissan LEAF’s driving experience is the e-Pedal, which is offered as standard equipment. It allows the driver the simplicity of accelerating, decelerating and stopping the car by using the accelerator pedal alone — a revolutionary innovation that can change the way people drive.

By simply releasing the accelerator, the car will come to a smooth and complete stop without the need to press the brake pedal. With a deceleration rate of up to 0.2g, the ePedal eliminates the need for drivers to constantly move their foot from the accelerator to the brake pedal to slow down or stop. This can help reduce stress and increase enjoyment.

Studies by Nissan in Japan, Europe and the U.S. have shown that the Nissan LEAF’s e-Pedal reduces the number of times the driver must apply the brakes while commuting in heavily congested traffic. The conventional brake pedal must still be used in aggressive braking situations.

Along with ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal, the Nissan LEAF is equipped with a set of available advanced safety technologies including Intelligent Lane Intervention (I-LI), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB) and Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning (BSW), and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
