Next Generation Nissan LEAF

A few months ago, we at Robbins Nissan received a first look at the exciting Nissan IDS Concept, which is shown here. Since it was just that — a concept — we knew better than to get too excited too quickly, and didn’t jump to conclusions regarding what it all meant. Now, however, a rumor that has been circulating in Nissan circles has prompted us to read a few tea leaes. The rumor is that the Nissan IDS Concept shares its DNA with a redesigned Nissan LEAF, so that’s got us asking, is it true?

Is the New Nissan LEAF Actually the Nissan IDS Concept?

The Nissan IDS Concept

The Nissan IDS shares one promising thing in common with the Nissan LEAF, as well as one obvious discrepancy: the IDS will share the EV technology with the LEAF, as well as the all-new high-capacity 60 kWh battery that is expected to be offered with the next-generation LEAF. However, the IDS is also expected to offer autonomous driing, highlighted by the all-new Piloted Drie mode. The Piloted Drie mode will mimic a driver’s own style and preferences, while the appealing design style employs carbon-fiber technology as well.

The Next-Generation Nissan LEAF

Although there is a certain stylistic similarity between the existing LEAF and the IDS concept, these similarities would seem to be pretty superficial in nature. They’ll certainly share the 60 kWh battery pack, which will give the LEAF a battery range of up to 220 miles, according to Nissan’s estimates. Whether the LED lines on the side of the body is transferred as well remains to be seven, although we can say with certainty that competing EV models, such as the Chey Bolt and Tesla Model 3, have certainly got the IDS concept on their respectie radars. We’ll keep our ears to the ground regarding upcoming news pertaining to the next-generation Nissan LEAF, set to arrie in time for the 2018 model year.
