Nissan today unveiled its redesigned 2018 all-electric Nissan Leaf, and one of the features new to the vehicle is support for Apple CarPlay. The new Nissan Leaf comes equipped with a 7-inch display that's compatible with CarPlay and Android Auto.

Nissan announced its first CarPlay-compatible vehicles back in June of 2016, and has thus far implemented support in the 2017 Maxima, Micra, and Murano.

Along with CarPlay, the Nissan Leaf features a range of 150 miles, ProPILOT driving assistance with speed maintenance, steering guidance, and braking, a single e-Pedal for braking and accelerating, and a revamped design.

Customers who reserve a Nissan Leaf are eligible for an exclusive gift that includes an Apple Watch Series 2, a GoPro HERO5 Black, or a Nest and Google Home bundle.

CarPlay support was slow to roll out following its initial introduction, but interest has picked up. Many 2016 and 2017 vehicles from a range of manufacturers offer the feature. Apple maintains a list of vehicles that are compatible with CarPlay on its website.

As an owner of a Toyota with a perfectly capable infotainment screen, I COMPLETELY agree.
Toyota's infotainment software SUCKS.

Cars in the early 90's came in at 1200lbs.
No they didn't.
Car are generally heavier now, mostly due to increased safety standards.

But, they were not even close to 1200 pounds is the 90's. The car on my avatar is a 91. It is much smaller than most cars, and the weight is more double than the 1200 lbs that you claim.

The MKIII version of it from the 2000's was much lighter, but still was over 2000 lbs.

the Nissan Leaf is an electric car and a land boat.

its weight is 3,350 LBS. Expected this little piggy is for the market in N America.

Cars in the early 90's came in at 1200lbs. 25 years of materials experience and the technology Nissan could do bette with the basic specs. I mean weight directly effects the cars ability to go from A to B.

I just purchased a new Ford Taurus SHO, it weighs 4,327 Pounds and its loaded with safety measures, and has excellent crash ratings. But by no means it is slow with the all wheel drive twin turbo 3.5 litre just because it's heavy. Cars today are powerful enough where weight cancels itself out in someways.
No disagreement here.

The power and torque numbers that many cars today are putting out are really impressive. Especially when the fuel economy is generally getting higher.
