Will the new Leaf turn into a crossover?


Japanese automaker Nissan is working on the third generation of the Leaf electric car, with a change in generation, the model will turn from a hatchback into a compact crossover. The British portal Autocar writes about it.

According to the source, with the generation change in 2025, the Nissan Leaf will change the proprietary Nissan V platform to the modular Renault-Nissan CMF-EV, on which the electric cars Ariya (produced since June 2021) and Megane E-Tech (presented in September as a concept).

According to the head of the European division of Nissan, Guillaume Cartier, the company plans to create a full-fledged line of electric vehicles, for this, the technologies of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance will be involved. But Nissan is not going to develop internal combustion engines, since environmental standards in Europe will only intensify and the development of new internal combustion engines does not make sense.

Nissan plans that by 2030, 80% of the brand’s sales will be full electric vehicles, and by 2025, the entire range of models of the brand will undergo electrification. At the same time, the Japanese automaker is not going to invest in hydrogen technologies.

The Japanese brand has been producing the Leaf electric hatchback since 2010. The second generation of the car has been produced since 2017, the cars are assembled at factories in Japan, the USA and the UK. In our country, this electric car began to be sold through official channels this year.
