The NissanConnect EV app lets you interact remotely with the 100% electric new Nissan LEAF

Ever wanted to command your car with a swipe of your smartphone?

We’re not talking debonair super-spy levels of interaction, here. But, with the NissanConnect EV app, there are lots of clever ways to remotely control the 100% electric new Nissan LEAF and keep you ahead of the pack.

As you eat your breakfast, you can remotely pre-warm the new LEAF’s interior to the perfect temperature – ideal for chilly mornings. If your vehicle is connected to a charger, that means you get all the benefits of a toasty interior, while retaining all of the 168 to 242-mile range* (WLTP Combined and City Cycle).

Before you leave the house, the NissanConnect EV app lets you plan your route, using the online database to  a convenient charger near your destination. On the move, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto let you seamlessly connect compatible smartphones to the new LEAF’s Bose audio system (available on Tekna grade), helping you to easily stream music, and interact with phone calls and text messages using hands-free voice control**.

At your destination, you can remotely track your car’s location, as well as the charge status and available range – including how much time the 40kWh battery needs to reach full capacity, ready for your return home. And, once you’re finally back in domestic bliss, there’s no need to sit in your car programming the ideal times to charge your new LEAF at more cost-effective off-peak rates – it can all be done via the NissanConnect EV app from the comfort of your sofa. More power to you.
