Nissan LEAF also introduces e-Pedal which allows drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate, and stop using just one pedal by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator. When the accelerator is fully released, regenerative and friction brakes are applied automatically, which brings the car to a complete stop.

It also features Intelligent Emergency Braking, Intelligent Driver Alertness, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Intelligent Trace Control to help ensure the safety of both the driver and passengers.

The Nissan LEAF comes with a 3-year vehicle warranty or for the first 100,000 kilometres (whichever comes first) and also with an 8-year battery warranty or for the first 160,000 kilometres.
