News24xx.com -  Nissan always make new technology. Recently, Nissan has launched a longer-range version of its bestselling Leaf electric vehicle. The firm said that the new Leaf will run about 150 miles (240km), about 40 miles more than its previous model.

The Leaf is the world's bestselling electric car, is facing increasing competition in the fast-developing green car market, fuelled in part by tightening emissions standards around the world. But that still falls short of ranges offered by rivals Tesla and GM.


The new Leaf, on sale in Japan from October and elsewhere early next year, has a longer range thanks to a bigger 40 kilowatt hour battery. Other updates include advances in autonomous driving technology and a more modern design.

Chris Lilly, content manager for the Next Green Car news site, said while the new model is not groundbreaking it should be more appealing to drivers.

Those improvements include autonomous driving technologies like parking assistance and single pedal driving.

Nissan said, the model will sell with the price that start at 3,150,360 yen (£ 22,220).


Competition in the electric vehicle market is intensifying. In addition to Tesla, Nissan's rivals include the Chevrolet Bolt, Volkswagen e-Golf and BMW's i3. The Tesla Model 3 can run at least 220 miles on a single charge and starts at $35,000 (£26,850), while General Motor's Chevy Bolt - with a range of 238 miles - starts at about $38,000 (£29,150), according to the companies.
