The all-new, second generation Nissan LEAF has won the ‘Best of Innovation’ at the 2018 CES (Consumer Electronics Show) presented by the Consumer Technology Association. The result follows its showcasing in the Middle East where it was displayed at the Dubai International Motor Show and at the Expo 2020 Dubai site where it was announced that it would become a part of the mega event’s official fleet.
The Nissan LEAF is 100% electric vehicle with ProPILOT and e-Pedal technologies, that took the following honors:
- CES Best of Innovation award winner for Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology
- CES honoree for Tech for a Better World
“It is a great honor to have this early and important recognition for the new Nissan LEAF,” said Daniele Schillaci, Nissan’s executive vice president for global marketing and sales, zero-emission vehicles and the battery business, and chairman of the management committee for the Japan/A&O region. “This award recognizes products and technologies that benefit people and the planet, so it is fitting that the new LEAF has been honored. It is more than just a car. It is the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, our vision to move people to a better world.”
The new Nissan LEAF – the best selling electric car in the world – brings a compelling package of everyday-useful innovations and technologies to more people worldwide than any electric vehicle has done before. The car is helping make the world a better place not only through innovation, but also through accessibility to more people. Additional capabilities such as vehicle-to-home and vehicle-to-grid integration (availability depending on market) help owners know they can waste less and give back more.
The new Nissan LEAF is on sale in Japan and will be arriving at Nissan dealers in the U.S., Canada and Western Europe over the next two months. Specifications and pricing for the Middle East have yet to be announced.
