Nissan Motor Co. is aiming to more than double annual deliveries of the Leaf with a new model that offers self parking and longer driving range, seeking to fend off Tesla Inc.’s entry into the affordable electric-vehicle market.

The new features should boost the appeal of the Leaf, said Daniele Schillaci, executive vice president for global sales and marketing. Nissan unveiled the car on Wednesday with a more conventional design to appeal to a wider audience and not just early adopters.
