Nissan Showed Its Future Electric SUV

Nissan gave details about an upcoming full-electric Rogue-sized SUV during a dealer meeting in August.

In recent months, Nissan must deal with worrying sales figures, a situation that only adds fuel to the fire created by the scandal surrounding its former president and CEO, Carlos Ghosn.

The age of some of its models does not help either these days, but there may be a glimmer of hope on the horizon as the manufacturer is currently preparing its first ever fully electric SUV, a model which will eventually support the LEAF in the lineup thanks to a higher autonomy, but also an all-wheel drive (in theory at least) and a little more space on board.

Automotive News has recently learned that the manufacturer had leaked the first details about this future model during a dealer meeting last month.

The SUV would be based on a brand-new platform and would be expected on the North American market in the second half of 2021. We can therefore expect an official unveiling during 2020, at one of the major auto shows.

According to Automotive News, some dealers who have seen the upcoming vehicle claim that it will have a range of 300 miles (or 482 km) and it could accelerate up to 96 km/h in less than five seconds.

The big brother of the LEAF would also have proportions similar to the Nissan Rogue, with a cabin closer to that of the Murano.

The carmaker could capitalize on such an SUV model, especially if the base price is reasonable. The base Nissan LEAF currently sells for $42,298 in Canada, before applying government rebates that can reach $13,000 in Quebec.

This first Nissan electric crossover is part of a family of eight models planned over the next few years.
