The Nissan LEAF PLUS was launched earlier this year at the CES and adds a new 62 kWh battery that boosts the range to 363 km.
For the first time since its launch in 2010, the LEAF is now offered in two versions. Not much separates both variants on the outside, a revised front fascia with blue highlights and an e+ logo plate on the underside of the charge port lid are the only clues. They also come with a PLUS badge on the hatch.
With roughly 50 percent more range than the regular LEAF, the 2019 Nissan LEAF PLUS also gets a 45 percent increase in power, jumping from 147 to 214 hp. The jump in the range comes from the 62 kWh battery pack, which means the LEAF PLUS can now travel 363 km on a single charge.
The new long-range LEAF is equipped with Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist technology as well as the one-pedal driving mode, the e-Pedal, which was reprogrammed. The latter, according to Nissan “allows the driver to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop using only the accelerator pedal.”
Also new in the PLUS is a larger 8-inch display with an updated navigation system that includes Door-to-Door Navigation.
