Despite Tesla hogging the spotlight, the Nissan LEAF remains the best selling electric vehicle to date, having sold over 300,000 units since it was introduced in 2010. Nissan wants to retain that sales title and has announced plans to introduce eight new hybrid and pure-electric vehicles by 2022 in a bid to sell 1 million electrified vehicles a year by 2022.
The bold initiative is part of the company’s M.O.V.E. to 2022 midterm plan, which also calls for the ramp up of autonomous and connected vehicles.
The range of new vehicles will span both the Nissan and Infiniti brands, with the Japanese automaker previously confirming that its next EV will be an electric crossover based on the IMx concept (pictured) that was unveiled at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. It is also preparing an affordable EV for China and two other electric vehicle derivatives based on the LEAF for the Venucia brand.
Nissan will expand its e-POWER hybrid technology — it has only been available in Japan — globally and expects electrified vehicles to make up 30 percent of its U.S. sales by 2025.
Infiniti, Nissan’s luxury division, is diving head first into electrification like other premium brands and will only launch hybrid or pure electric vehicles starting in fiscal year 2021. The company wants 50 percent of its global sales to be comprised of electrified vehicle by 2025.
Beyond just introducing more electrified vehicles, Nissan also plans to expand the availability of ProPilot autonomous driving technology to 20 models in 20 markets, as well as offer connectivity for 100 percent of its lineup by 2022.
Nissan Leaf e-Plus Brings More Power, Promises 226 Mile Range
You get more of everything with this upgraded LEAF.
Nissan has finally unveiled the Leaf e-Plus (e+ for short), a long-range Nissan Leaf that’s better positioned against the Chevrolet Bolt, Hyundai Kona Electric and even the Tesla Model 3.
With a driving range of up to 226 miles (364 km) on a single charge, the LEAF e+ travels 76 miles (122 km) longer than the standard Leaf thanks to a larger 62 kWh lithium-ion battery. It’s also more powerful, featuring a 160 kW (214-hp) electric motor generating 45 percent more power and 250 lb-ft of torque.
Nissan says the LEAF e+ accelerates from 50 mph (80 km/h) to 75 mph (121 km/h) nearly 13 percent quicker than the standard Leaf, with a 10 percent higher top speed speed to boot.
The LEAF e+ can be charged at around 70 kW with a peak of 100 kW. When connected to 100 kW, it charges in a similar time as the base 40 kWh LEAF connected to the 50 kW charger.
Inside, the Leaf e+ brings a new 8-inch display with an updated navigation system that the company says is more responsive, while exterior upgrades are limited to minor accents and a “e+” logo.
The Nissan LEAF remains the world’s best-selling electric car with more than 380,000 units sold since its introduction in 2010. But with Tesla shifting Model 3 production into high gear, only time will tell whether the addition of the long-range LEAF e+ model will keep it at the top of the EV segment for a few more years.
The price will definitely need to be right.
