Nissan continues to trickle out more images ahead of the Leaf’s introduction next month.

The 2018 Nissan Leaf is exactly two weeks away from its public debut on September 6. Although Nissan has just published a teaser video for the forthcoming Nissan Leaf earlier this month, the Japanese car manufacturer continues to give us an additional image of its second-gen electric vehicle.

In the previous teasers, we have admired a sleeker and sportier Leaf with sharper headlights, an iconic V-motion grille, a black roof as well as a wedge-sharped profile. It doesn’t seem to be enough to whet our appetites, so Nissan has decided to reveal more of the Leaf’s exterior design via the latest image. This time, we will take a closer look at the rear end.

Similar to what we’ve seen before, the photo zooms in on an L-shaped tail light with LED light guides. The tail light is seamlessly linked to a matte black tailgate panel attached the Zero Emission badging. Moreover, a blacked-out C-pillar is also detected which will give the Leaf an all-new “floating roof” look.

No images of the inside, but the Leaf promises to process a premium cabin in which passengers can enjoy a “touch more comfort”, as claimed by the company.

Other striking features of the Nissan Leaf include the ProPILOT Assist semi-autonomous driving (with self-parking) and an e-Pedal feature which is billed as “revolutionary technology that transforms the way we drive”.
