Safety Shield® 360
Safety on your side
Nissan is creating a brighter future by making the Safety Shield 360 standard on every 2021 LEAF. Powered by Nissan Intelligent Mobility, it puts six advanced features at your command. []
Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection monitors your speed – and the car ahead. It can alert you when you need to slow down, automatically engaging the brakes to help you avoid a collision. And when it detects a pedestrian in the crosswalk, it can stop you in your tracks. []
Rear Automatic Braking
Rear Automatic Braking keeps an eye on the area behind your Nissan LEAF. It alerts you to stationary objects you might not see while you reverse. If you fail to stop, it can automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision, or lessen the severity of an impact. []
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Rear Cross Traffic Alert helps you back out of a space with more confidence. It watches around the rear of your Nissan LEAF, and can warn you about cars it detects creeping up from either side. []
Blind Spot Warning
Blind Spot Warning acts like an extra pair of eyes whenever you change lanes. It warns you when another vehicle is hiding in your blind spot, so you can steer clear of danger. []
Lane Departure Warning
Lane Departure Warning helps make sure you change lanes only when you mean to. If the system detects that you’re drifting over, haptic feedback on the steering wheel can let you know. []
High Beam Assist
High Beam Assist helps out with night vision, while being considerate of other drivers. It automatically switches to low-beam headlights when it detects a vehicle ahead. Then it turns the high beams back on when you need them.
Be prepared for hazards before they appear. Intelligent Forward Collision Warning monitors the road up to two cars ahead. It warns you when one of them suddenly slows down, so you can react fast. []
Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention
Heighten your awareness. Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention can detect if another car is in your blind spot. If you attempt to cross over the lines, it can automatically guide you back into your lane – while you stay in control. []
Intelligent Lane Intervention
Stay on course. Intelligent Lane Intervention helps keep you in your lane. When lane markings are clear, it can detect if you’re straying outside the lines. If you are, the system can engage the brakes to help guide you back to centre. []
Intelligent Around View® Monitor
Parking is easier than ever. The available Intelligent Around View Monitor gives you the edge on any space. This advanced system provides a virtual composite 360° bird’s eye view of your LEAF. It also offers selectable split-screen close-ups of the front, rear and curbside views. Plus, it warns you when it detects something moving nearby, so you aren't surprised by any hazards. []
Helps out on the highway
With available ProPILOT Assist, the Nissan LEAF helps take the stress out of daily driving. See how this advanced driver assistance system gives you a hand in highway traffic. []
It can stop and go for you
Take the tedium out of stop-and-go on the highway. ProPILOT Assist can help your Nissan LEAF keep a set distance from the car ahead based on the traffic flow. It can even come to a full stop, and can bring you back up to speed when the highway starts moving again. []
And helps keep you centred
No more drifting. ProPILOT Assist helps keep you centred in your lane through straightaways. It can even help you stay between the lines through gentle curves. []
It’s nice to have a little backup when something unexpected happens. The Nissan LEAF offers a suite of available Nissan Intelligent Mobility features that can step in and take action to help keep you out of trouble. []
Intelligent Driver Alertness
Time for a break? Available Intelligent Driver Alertness monitors your steering patterns. If the system detects you might be getting drowsy, it alerts you with a chime and a coffee cup icon on your display. []

Active Ride Control
Conquer bumps and potholes. Active Ride Control can automatically apply the brakes and adjust engine torque to smooth out your ride. Perfect for city driving and country roads alike.
Hill Start Assist
When you’re on a steep hill, there’s always that car behind that’s too close for comfort. Hill Start Assist helps stop you from rolling backwards. It holds brake pressure for a few seconds, giving you enough time to switch from the brake pedal to the accelerator.
Intelligent Trace Control
Enjoy hugging curves with handling that feels effortless. Intelligent Trace Control reads the situation. If needed, it can apply select brakes to help you steer smoothly through the corners. []
Driver awareness tech
Cars sneak up on you, they sit in your blind spot, and shopping carts appear out of nowhere. Nissan LEAF uses smart technology and advanced sonar sensors to help you stay aware.
More Advanced Safety Features
Standard on every Nissan LEAF®
Every Nissan LEAF comes with advanced safety technologies that monitor the drive. They can help you respond in an instant, while working to protect you and your passengers. Wherever life takes you, safety and confidence come along for the ride.
10 standard air bags
The Nissan Advanced Air Bag System includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt and occupant-classification sensors. Plus, the LEAF is equipped with front and back seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags. It also has knee air bags in the front seats. And for extra protection, there's roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags with a rollover sensor. []
Smart braking technology
Electronic Brake Force Distribution can detect extra weight in the back and adjusts the rear brakes accordingly. And if Brake Assist senses an emergency, it provides extra pedal pressure and quicker braking response. []
Anti-Lock Braking System
When you have to brake suddenly, the Nissan LEAF’s ABS can pump the brakes faster than you ever could. This helps you maintain control by preventing wheel lockup, which in turn allows you to steer around obstacles in your path.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Easy-Fill Tire Alert
The Nissan LEAF’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System can let you know whenever a tire is low. [] And the Easy-Fill Tire Alert takes the guesswork out of filling your tires, with a beep of the horn to let you know when you’ve reached the correct pressure. []
LATCH and Snug Kids®
The LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) system lets you secure compatible child restraints in the back seat without a seat belt or locking clip. Nissan’s Snug Kids® is our Child Safety Seat Fit Program.
