The design is all-new. The 2018 Leaf is slightly larger, more conventional-looking and thanks to a 40-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the range is increased by 40 percent, moving from 107 to 150 miles. This is nearly double of the initial 84-mile range of the first Leafs.
The 30-kWh lithium-ion battery that arrived in higher trims last year and enabled a total range of 107 miles is now standard on every 2017 Nissan Leaf, replacing the former system that was rated at 84 miles of range before needing to be recharged.
A new, 30-kWh battery is fitted to SV and SL trims, extending the Leaf’s range to 107 miles. The low-price S trim retains the smaller battery and 84-mile range but receives a new 5-inch color audio screen with NissanConnect Mobile Apps. NissanConnect and navigation are now standard on SV and SL trims.
