The All-new 2018 Nissan Leaf Is Off To A Really Hot Start

The All-New 2018 Nissan Leaf is Off to a Really Hot Start

According to a recent report, the 2018 Nissan Leaf is already a success in Europe and Japan.

While it’s difficult to get definitive sales figures for international markets, InsideEVs reports Nissan has received over 19,000 orders for the new Leaf in Japan alone. And while that pales in comparison to the Tesla Model 3’s reported pre-order figure of over 400,000, the 2018 Nissan Leaf orders are a different story. That’s because, in Japan, all the paperwork is already set when an “order” is placed; all Nissan has to do is deliver the vehicle. In other words, it’s not the same as putting down a $1,000 refundable deposit, which is the case with the Tesla Model 3.

Daihatsu is Bringing All Sorts of Funky New Concepts to Tokyo

Japanese automaker Daihatsu is going all-out for its home auto show later this month, with plans to show off a full lineup of all-new and updated concept cars.

Daihatsu has released images and some info on its Tokyo Motor Show concepts prior to their official unveiling in Japan. In our opinion, the most interesting of these design studies is the Compagno. Inspired by the original Daihatsu Campagno of the 1960s, the concept is a cheeky modern-day take on a classic. Daihatsu envisions it being powered by either a 1.0-liter gasoline engine or a 1.2-liter engine with a hybrid system.
