Nissan has debuted its LEAF e+ electric vehicle, which offers a new 62 kWh battery pack that can give the model up to 226 miles of driving range.
“The new Nissan LEAF e+ offers all of the style, convenience and electric vehicle benefits that have helped make LEAF the best-selling electric vehicle in the world, plus even more driving excitement, range, power and choice,” says Denis Le Vot, senior vice president and chairman of Nissan North America. “Customers now have a selection of powertrains and models to best suit their driving needs.”
The LEAF e+ will be sold under the LEAF PLUS Series in the U.S. and Canada, with each trim level receiving its own designation of S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS. Globally, the vehicle will be referred to as the Nissan LEAF e+.
More than 380,000 Nissan LEAF vehicles have been sold globally since the model first went on sale in 2010, with over 128,000 sold in the U.S.
U.S. sales of the Nissan LEAF PLUS Series are expected to begin in spring 2019.
