Arnold de Leon, who already test drive the 2018 Nissan Leaf through the All New Leaf Drive, wrote the following and shares his impressions of the new Nissan Leaf.
Just did my test drive today. It's not with a dealer. The confirmation I originally receive didn't include the date. Like some of you I had forgotten to put it on my calendar. I got reminder a few days before the drive so that solve the mystery date for me.
Most novel thing is the E-pedal, it was really hard to retrain my feet/brain that the car was going to stop. It was particularly challenging because I'd developed a pump and coast style. I can easily see liking this once I master it.
Pro-pilot really wants to increase the following distance quickly if a car cuts in front you. If I was controlling it I would take much longer to increase the distance. Basically I think it likes to change speed more aggressively than me. FWIW this was true of Toyota adaptive cruise control that I experienced a few months ago.
The person reminded me that getting the waiting list didn't have any downsides.
If you have test driven the 2018 Nissan Leaf please, share with us your impressions below in the comment's section. I am very positive and enthusiastic about the new Nissan Leaf, but little disappointing about the range. I am skeptical if it will make the cut without reaching the 200 miles per charge range. On the other hand the lower price is a strong point as the current range is just fine for the most city drivers. By the way here are few ways Nissan can surprise the Leaf critics and also look at the Nissan's future Leaf concept already turned over.
