Around View® Monitor. One of the new features on the 2017 Nissan LEAF® is the intelligent Around View® system.1 Utilizing four separate cameras strategically placed around the vehicle, you can see a virtual birds-eye view and toggle between cameras to help you back into even the tightest parking spots. Plus, an LCD monitor provides a crisp display to make parallel parking easier than ever.
Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD). This system works to monitor wheel spin and resistance when braking to optimize stopping power. Basically, it keeps track of road conditions, speed, weight distribution, and more in order to help you brake as efficiently as possible. Paired with features like Brake Assist, EBD is just one more way the Nissan LEAF® improves safety.
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC). VDC2 is much like an advanced traction control system. This feature monitors both braking and steering in order to check for oversteer and understeer. By reducing the power sent from the engine to the wheels in dangerous situations and by applying brake pressure to specific wheels, VDC helps you maintain control better on slippery surfaces.
Other great safety features on the Nissan LEAF® include Tire Pressure Monitoring, several airbags, the LATCH seating system for car seats, and Hill Start Assist to help you on inclines. These are just some of the many things that make the Nissan LEAF® one of the best-selling electric cars on the market.

1 Parking aid/convenience feature. Cannot completely eliminate blind spots. May not detect every object and does not warn of moving objects. Always check surroundings and turn to look behind you before moving vehicle. 2 VDC, which should remain on when driving except when freeing the vehicle from mud or snow, cannot prevent accidents due to abrupt steering, carelessness, or dangerous driving techniques.
