More electric power is possible with Nissan’s reveal of the Nissan LEAF e+.

The new addition extends the current LEAF’s range by approximately 50 percent. This means drivers of the LEAF e+ can enjoy a maximum driving range of 226 miles thanks to the increased energy density of the battery. The inclusion of the new model into Nissan’s electric family benefits customers eager to adopt an EV-driving lifestyle.

“Customers now have a selection of powertrains and models to best suit their driving needs,” added Le Vot.

In addition to the electric powertrain that fuels the LEAF, drivers are impressed with its innovative technologies that fall under the automaker’s technological umbrella of Nissan Intelligent Mobility. This philosophy represents Nissan’s redesign of the way people drive, how cars move, and their place in the world. Notable technologies that set the LEAF apart are the semi-autonomous driving system of ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal, which facilitates driving with one pedal.

“Nissan Intelligent Mobility is at the core of everything we do and the new Nissan LEAF e+ takes this vision even further,” Le Vot continued. “EV’s will play a significant part in our product lineup as we move forward and will lead the way to providing an efficient and sustainable future for the world.”

In the U.S. and Canada, consumers will find the new model this spring under the moniker LEAF PLUS Series, which will feature three trim levels — S PLUS, SV PLUS, and SL PLUS. The new model will be marketed globally as the LEAF e+, hitting dealerships in Europe by the middle of this year. Japan will see the model in its dealerships this month.
