2021 Nissan LEAF features new 'song' to prevent accidents

Nissan has announced the start of sales for the 100% electric LEAF model year 2021. The recharged LEAF boasts enhanced safety features for a more confident electric driving experience for both drivers and pedestrians around the car.

LEAF MY21 will come equipped with a new Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS) named ’Canto’ by Nissan. Fully compliant with the new European regulations, the AVAS has been specifically designed to transmit artificially simulated driving sounds, alerting road users of the presence of a 100% electric vehicle.

As pioneers in electrification, Nissan incorporated a form of alerting sound from the first-generation Nissan LEAF to ensure all road users are aware of an approaching electric car.

Marco Fioravanti, Regional Vice President, Product Planning AMIEO, said:  “Customer safety is paramount, not only for those behind the wheel, but those surrounding the car as well. As the world becomes more and more electrified, this sound will soon become part of the soundscape of our roads as Nissan’s signature EV sound, moving us closer to our goal of a zero-fatality driving experience.”

In addition, LEAF MY21 offers the perfect blend of smart driving, connectivity and sustainable mobility equipped with In-Car Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention (IBSI) as standard for an engaging drive and reassuring experience behind the wheel. Intelligent Rear View Mirror (IRVM) is also available as an option on N-Connecta and Tekna grades.
