Tesla Model 3 rumored to be undercut by the next Nissan Leaf

2018 Nissan LEAF Dynamic Design teased with new photo of Nissan's new electric bedrock

That's exactly the point in Nissan's latest teaser about the Leaf - with the Japanese automaker striving to achieve a wind-commanding design for their second-generation electric auto.

The Nissan Leaf will come in three prices, $29,990 for the Leaf S, 32,490 for the Leaf SV and $36,200 for the Leaf SL. Tesla hasn't confirmed the numbers for the Model 3 as yet but previous reports suggest that it will tout 258 horsepower.

Already caught in production form ahead of a September unveiling, the new Leaf's pricing has also reportedly been leaked, as Autoblog has obtained some pricing and specification information for Nissan's new EV.

It will also have autonomous capabilities not seen so far in its sector, with Nissan's Pro Pilot promising single lane autonomous driving and self parking abilities.

Sources close to Yadav said he is in no mood to join the NDA, or accept any ministerial berth. This is the first joint meeting of the Opposition parties after JD (U) broke ranks with them.

The EV will include a 40 kWh battery capacity, which is lower than the Model 3's 50 kWH capacity. While the acceleration of the upcoming Leaf has not been fully revealed in the leaks, the last iteration of the vehicle managed 0-60mph in 10.4 seconds, according to a auto and Driver report.

Performance-wise, the 2018 Nissan Leaf would likely not hold a candle to the Tesla Model 3, either.

"Model 3 is like a BMW 3 series or Audi A4". Considering the current Leaf is rated at just 107 miles on a charge and Nissan has been promising a 200-mile range for the new vehicle, the 40kWh battery may serve as a cheaper option compared to future variants that may be added. The 2018 Nissan Leaf is, at its core, a compact hatchback, and it looks every bit like one. For users who are looking for an EV that can perfectly do Point A to Point B traveling at a cost that is cheaper, the 2018 Nissan Leaf is a great choice.

Nissan has hyped-up the upcoming 2018 redesign, however, promising a better looking, more aerodynamic vehicle with an extended range to better position itself against the newcomers to the affordable EV space.

The other engine variants have not yet been leaked, so it's now unclear whether or not the Leaf will be a Tesla Model 3 killer.
