Nissan News: Next-Generation Nissan Leaf To Feature 200-Plus Mile Range

4 posts in this topic

The current Nissan Leaf offers a max range of 107 miles. But that will pale in comparison with the upcoming Chevrolet Bolt and Tesla Model 3 which will offer a range of 200 miles. Nissan is aware of this and will be addressing this with the next-generation Leaf.

 

Speaking with Autoblog, Nissan's global director of EV and HEV engineering Kazuo Yajima said the next-generation Leaf will feature a 60-kWh battery that should give it an overall range of between 210 to 220 miles. The current Leaf either comes with either a 24 or 30-kWh battery.

 

Yajima wouldn't say when the next-generation Leaf would be introduced, although some believe it will be shown in 2018.

The BOLT not only shocked the world, but put pressure on all Auto OEMs. As to why we saw a rushed Tesla 3 shown and Hyundai announced their Ioniq or how ever you spell it EV auto with plug in VOLT competitor also to be out at the end of 2016 on lots 2017.

 

I expect this 2nd Generation leaf to be shown early next year at one of the autoshows.

 

Based on reading Nissan's web site about their EV plans, the engineers are pushing for mid 200 mile range, but I can understand the conservative nature of saying 210-220 which is a decent range for a compact like this.

 

I am excited to see what the final EPA numbers are for the BOLT as GM still advertises full charge in 9 hrs at 25 miles per hr charge. So this would give the BOLT a 225 mile battery pack range.

 

Over all the future of near silent gliding auto's is upon us. :metal:

Is that charge rate on a 110 outlet or a 220 that needs to be installed in your garage?

9hrs to full charge on a 240V charging system.
