2018 Nissan LEAF: First Review And Test Drive From Japan – Video This 2018 Nissan Leaf isn't yet for sale in the U.S., but it is in Japan. Electrified Journeys Japan took advantage of this fact and have released their first video review of the all-electric. Seems like they found a very sympathetic dealership to aid them in their review adventures, and so a Japanese staffer accompanies the driver and so there is some back and forth conversation in Japanese. I haven't watched all the way through -- it's 40 minutes long -- but clearly our host, James, clearly enjoys the improvements made over the previous Leaf, especially the acceleration. There's quite a bit of prologue you can feel free to skip over, starting at 3:30 mark. Not sure if there's anything here to convince you to buy the Leaf if it wasn't on your radar, but it may reassure those always moving in this Nissan's direction.
