2018 Nissan Leaf.

The Nissan Leaf makes some significant strides in semi-autonomous driving technologies for 2018. The automaker unveiled the redesigned version of its best-selling electric car last Tuesday, touting a new 40kWh battery that gives the Leaf about 150 miles of range on a full charge, and a host of driver tech that pushes the Leaf closer, at least incrementally, toward being a strong contender in the mass-market EV segment.

We drove the Leaf on Wednesday, and straightaway, the new car seems to match tech offerings found in the Chevy Bolt, which currently sells for about $7,500 more than a Leaf, before federal tax incentives.
