Yesterday, Nissan unveiled its second-generation LEAF electric hatchback at a special event just outside of Tokyo, Japan. Consequentially, yesterday’s video focused on the launch event and some of my initial reactions to the vehicle.
As expected, you all had lots of questions about the 2018 LEAF. And while I’ve not been able to answer them all (I can confirm that the 2018 Nissan LEAF uses a Nissan-sourced passively-cooled battery pack), today’s video features an interview with the 2018 LEAF’s Chief Vehicle Engineer, Hiroki Isobe in which he provides some more in-depth discussion of the LEAF’s engineering.
Watch the video above to find out what was discussed, subscribe to our YouTube channel, and support Transport Evolved at Patreon.
