The future of driving is looking very electric as more and more automakers offer models that run on electric batteries. Once saved for small cars, electric power is becoming more prevalent in larger vehicles such as SUVs, crossovers, and trucks. And automakers that already have established EVs in their lineups are diligently working to improve them from the power they produce, the range they deliver, and the comfort they provide.

“Coming from both long-established automakers and high-tech upstart companies, the next wave of EVs is expected to operate for increasingly longer periods on a charge,” writes Forbes contributor Jim Gorzelany. “Perhaps the best part of the deal is that most will register top-shelf performance and come wrapped in stunningly crafted styling that sets them apart from most internal-combustion autos.”

One such automaker is Nissan, whose release of the 2019 LEAF e+ proves to be its best EV model yet, notes Gorzelany.

Nissan is bringing a new version of the Leaf to dealerships later this year with a larger battery pack that enables 45 percent more power and an estimated 226 miles on a charge. That’s within striking distance of the Leaf’s closest competitor, the Chevrolet Bolt EV, with a 238-mile range,” reports Gorzelany.

Nissan revealed its new, more powerful addition to the LEAF lineup earlier this month at the CES trade show in Las Vegas. In addition to its greater driving range, the LEAF e+ also features Nissan’s advanced driver assist technologies of ProPILOT, a semi-autonomous driving system, and one-pedal driving capability through the e-Pedal system.

Design-wise, the LEAF e+ features a cabin accented with blue contrast stitching and an updated front fascia.
