The Awaited Nissan LEAF e-Plus Delayed

We’ve just returned from what could arguably be one of the best North American Auto Shows we’ve attended over the last few years. If you missed our coverage, check it out in our Auto Show section. We counted more than 60 unveilings in total but apparently one was dropped at the last second…

Ever since Nissan launched the new generation LEAF electric car nearly two years ago, stories have been circulating about the coming a more powerful, longer range-d LEAF. The standard car sports a 40 kWh battery while the e-Plus was expected to gain an extra 20 kWh.

We’ve just learned that because of the issues surrounding Carlos Ghosn, Nissan decided at the last minute to postpone the unveiling of the more powerful version of the most popular electric car in the world.

No news yet as to when Nissan will officially introduce the new LEAF e-Plus but we suspect it won’t be long. Next January’s North American Auto Show in Detroit seems like the likely venue.
