Nissan LEAF PLUS to Join The Nissan Family

 


Nissan has unveiled the Nissan LEAF e+, which further broadens the appeal of the world's best-selling electric car by offering a new powertrain with additional power and range.

The "e+" in the vehicle’s name refers to the increased energy density of the model's 62 kWh battery pack and the higher output of its powertrain. The new powertrain adds to the car's range by approximately 50 percent, with EPA-estimated range of up to 226 miles. This ensures that there's a Nissan LEAF to meet the driving needs of a wider range of customers.

The LEAF e+ will be sold under the LEAF PLUS Series in the US 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 100 percent electric model first went on sale in 2010, with over 128,000 sold in the US. The Nissan LEAF is equipped with advanced technologies including ProPILOT Assist semi-autonomous driving system and e-Pedal mode for one-pedal driving, the LEAF embodies Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company's vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society.

Having pioneered mass-market electric cars with the LEAF, Nissan is continuing to promote alternative vehicle transportation. The LEAF family of cars plays an important role in Nissan's efforts to integrate electric vehicles and energy systems into customer's lives – creating an "EV ecosystem." Among these efforts is Nissan Energy, which is the company's initiative for its electric vehicles to easily connect with energy systems to charge their batteries, power homes and businesses, or feed energy back to power grids, as well as new efforts to reuse batteries.

The Nissan LEAF PLUS Series is scheduled to join the LEAF family in the U.S. in spring 2019. Want to find out more? Contact us today at Courtesy Nissan of Tampa.
