Nissan's latest mobile device was presented at the GSMA Mobile World Congress and the company wants you to think it's getting into mobile devices.
Truth be told, it has been for a while, if you can classify a small, affordable electric car as a mobile device, that is.
Unveiled and even unboxed as if it was some sort of mobile phone, the third-generation MY16 Nissan Leaf totes four cameras and a 7-inch colour screen.
Perhaps most importantly, the driving range is significantly increased to 155 miles (249.5km) per charge, up from 107 miles (172.2km) on a 2016 model year Leaf with its older version of the 30 KWh battery.
That's still a fair way off a Tesla's midrange, 265-mile (426.5km) Model S – a car which would be the world's best-selling plug-in electric, were it not for the Leaf itself – but then, with the compact Leaf costing half as much at retail, they're not exactly in the same ballpark to begin with.
