Next-generation Nissan Leaf will offer a 186-mile range, a more conventional design

Article by Andrew Christian, on August 26, 2014

The next-generation Nissan Leaf comes into focus again courtesy of AutoExpress and according to the British magazine we will see several improvements. First of all, the new Nissan Leaf will offer a range of up to 186 miles (300 km), which is a real improvement comparing it to the current range of 85 miles (136 km) range offered by the current version.

The bad news is that the Leaf will not surpass the Tesla Model S, which can travel up to 312 miles (502 km). Despite the better range, Nissan’s Leaf will arrive with smaller battery packs and what’s more interesting is that the same technology will be available on the Infiniti luxury brand too.

Regarding the design, expect the chromed ‘V’ grille featured on the current Nissan models, angular headlights and ceased bodywork. The Friend-ME Concept will borrow new design elements to the next-generation Leaf.

Nissan will launch the new Leaf in late 2016, which means that the electric vehicle will arrive on the market as a 2017MY.
