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

Recommended Posts

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.

      There have been some rumors floating around for the past couple of years that BMW was planning to offer a 3-Series with a fully electric powertrain. Some new spy shots reveal that may come to fruition.
      At first glance, this looks like a normal 3-Series sedan. But on the front doors, there is a label that reads "Electric Test Vehicle". BMW has also tried to disguise the fact this is an electric by attaching tailpipes, but the spy photographer says its a pure EV.
      Not much is known about the electric powertrain or batteries. This mule was seen testing with a Tesla Model 3, suggesting that BMW sees it a direct competitor to the 3-Series EV. To do that, the model would need a range of over 200 miles. But sources at BMW tell Motor Trend that the range could be as close to 300 miles.
      We do know the next 3-Series will transition the CLAR platform that uses a combination of steel, aluminum, and carbon fiber. It also looks like that the design will not change that much from the current model.
      The next 3-Series is expected to debut at the Paris Motor Show in October. Whether we see the EV version is unclear.

      The next-generation Volvo XC90, due out in 2021 as a 2022 model will follow in the S60's footsteps by not offering any sort of diesel option. Instead, Volvo will be offering a range of hybrids and electric-only powertrains.
      “We have to prioritise – we cannot do everything. So if we want to be faster in electrification we can’t say yes to everything. That’s why [the S60] has no diesel alternative and we are not planning to have a diesel alternative in any new cars. The XC90 will follow this,” said Volvo CEO Håkan Samuelsson to Auto Express.
      Volvo's next-generation SPA2 platform will underpin the XC90, which is designed to accept both electric and hybrid powertrains. Don't expect a major change in terms of the design. Auto Express reports that Volvo will undertake an evolutionary approach.

      Nissan finds itself in trouble once again as it admitted today that it had improperly measured exhaust emissions and fuel economy for 19 models sold in Japan. According to Reuters, Nissan found that test environments for emissions and fuel economy at final inspection stations didn't meet up to standards. Nissan also found that inspection reports were be based on altered measurements.
      The automaker was quick to point out this misconduct doesn't affect models exported to other markets "as it applies to requirements intended specifically for the Japanese market."
      “This is a deep and serious issue for our company,” Nissan Chief Operating Officer Yasuhiro Yamauchi told reporters at a briefing today.
      "We realize that our compliance awareness remains lacking."
      Nissan will be carrying out an investigation to determine the cause, which it expects to take a month or longer.
      This comes a few months after Nissan revealed that it had uncertified inspectors signing off on final inspection of JDM models for decades. It prompted a recall of 1.2 million vehicles and suspending production for two weeks.
