Nissan LEAF is Candidate for World Green Car of the Year 2018…

In a competitive year of transformative automotive engineering Windsor are delighted to discover that the new Nissan LEAF, winner of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Tech Award for self-driving technology, is now a candidate for the World Green Car of the Year 2018!

The World Car of the Year (WCOTY) Awards 2018 are organised by the World Car Awards (WCA). The program of annual awards is organised by, and conducted by, automotive journalists of national and international acclaim from all over the world. Their goal is to judge the best automotive innovation of the year with the utmost objectivity, credibility, and integrity. The World Green Car of the Year is awarded to the vehicle demonstrating the greatest advances in green technology in automotive engineering each year.

Nominated in 2011, but pipped at the post, could 2018 be the year for our mass market zero emissions Nissan LEAF to win? We shall wait and see… In the interim, let us examine some of the New Nissan LEAF’s most environmentally friendly reassuring features:

Nissan Intelligent Power: The Zero Emissions e-Powertrain

  • The Nissan LEAF has already sold 300,000 vehicles in 49 markets, and has collectively been driven a total of 3.5billion kilometres without any critical battery incident. With a market leading range capability, the Nissan LEAF is set to win with consumers on a practical level at the very least in 2018.
  • The Nissan LEAF presents a bigger range capability than ever before – You can drive almost 378km* on a single charge (New European Driving Cycle).
  • The focal point of Nissan Intelligent Power in the new Nissan LEAF is its e-powertrain, which offers improved energy efficiency and increased torque and power output for an enhanced dynamic performance.
  • Complementing this new drivetrain is the high-tech lithium-ion battery pack, which delivers increased power and energy storage capacity.
  • Along with enhanced energy efficiency, the new e-powertrain delivers an exhilarating, linear driving performance with a power output of 110 kW. Torque has been increased to 320 Nm, resulting in improved acceleration.
  • Moreover, Nissan has fused its increasing pioneering electric innovation and ProPILOT technology to create an altogether more ambitious drive.

  • An icon of Nissan’s electric car design agenda, this sleek design zero emissions EV model is everything that a most environmental friendly vehicle can be. Let’s hope it continues to keep Nissan one step ahead every step of the way in driving the future of electric car design, not only for Nissan, but for the automotive industry itself.
