Nissan has recently released details about the Nissan LEAF e+. This new vehicle 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, as well as the higher output of its powertrain, which adds to the car's range by approximately 50 percent. The Nissan LEAF e+ will have an EPA-estimated range of up to 226 miles, ensuring 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, however, globally, it will be known as the Nissan LEAF e+.

Since going on sale in 2010, more than 380,000 Nissan LEAF vehicles have been sold globally since the 100 percent electric model first, 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."

The Nissan LEAF PLUS Series is scheduled to join the LEAF family in the U.S. in spring 2019. If you would like to learn more about this upcoming new vehicle, contact us today at Crown Nissan of Greenville. We would be happy to assist you.
