Will it Drift?: Nissan Leaf - Can emission zero be a sideways hero?

It does not have a hydraulic handbrake and nor is it inclined to smoke up its tyres at every available opportunity. Subscribe to Autocar now: It is, in fact, Nissan's family-friendly, front-wheel drive, flagship electric car. As far as you could get from being a natural drift machine.

The New 2018 Nissan Leaf
The Nissan Leaf came to be in 2010 as the company’s first mass-produced, all-electric passenger car. Built on a bespoke platform based on the familiar Nissan B architecture it uses a synchronous electric motor and a range of battery packs that deliver up to 107 miles per charge. Although it has proven quite popular in several markets around the world, the current Leaf is getting a bit long in the tooth now that GM has launched the Chevrolet Bolt and Opel Ampera-e, while Tesla is getting ready to roll out the Model 3. But, Nissan is looking to catch up with the competition with a redesigned model that will break cover by the end of 2017. Likely to make its public debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, the second-generation Leaf was already spotted testing on public roads several times. But more recently, Nissan has started using thinner camouflage, which reveals most of the hatchback’s new design. And, by the looks of things, the new Leaf will be sportier and will share more features with the rest of the Nissan lineup. Word has it Nissan is also introducing a new drivetrain that will give the Leaf more juice. The current 107-mile range isn’t going to cut it against the Chevy Bolt, so it’s safe to assume that Nissan is aiming for at least 200 miles.
