The acceleration of electrification was the key theme at the Nissan stand during this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

Taking centre stage was the world premiere of the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship race car, seen in its concept livery for the first time. The car will make its city circuit debut at the start of the 2018/19 season later this year.

The all-electric, zero-emission new LEAF was also a feature. One new LEAF is being ordered in Europe every 12 minutes. That makes it the region’s fastest-selling electric vehicle. There are more than 19,000 orders for the car across Europe.

The new LEAF is the icon of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision. It is spearheading the brand’s drive to create a more exciting, confident and connected society.

Technologies that made their European debut on the LEAF are already being rolled out across the brand’s range of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. The company’s innovative ProPILOT advanced driver assistance technology will be available on Europe’s best-selling crossover – the Qashqai – from this month.

And the LEAF’s 40kWh battery is now available on the e-NV200 van, increasing its range by 60% with no reduction in load-carrying capability.

The LEAF is delivering the Intelligent Mobility vision today, and the brand is already working towards what consumers will demand tomorrow.

Nissan has confirmed that under its new Nissan M.O.V.E. to 2022 midterm plan, it will offer electrified powertrains within the next generation of its best-selling crossovers. It is a pioneering initiative that will further extend consumer choice.

Also for the future is the IMx KURO, a concept vehicle that showcases the brand’s leadership in both electric vehicles and crossovers. The model underwent an update since its Tokyo Motor Show debut and now features the pioneering Brain-to-Vehicle (B2V) technology.

The brand also highlighted how Nissan Intelligent Mobility is going beyond the vehicle with an integrated electric ecosystem. Am announcement came for a new strategic partnership between Nissan and energy company E.ON. The collaboration will explore opportunities for pilot activities and commercial offers related to vehicle-to-grid services, renewable energy generation and storage solutions, as well as grid integration for Nissan electric vehicle customers.
