Nissan LEAF-Based Electric SUV To Debut Next Month, Electric Sedan To Follow

Wed Sep 06, 2017 9:40 am

Good news!

http://insideevs.com/nissan-leaf-based- ... ext-month/

But it won’t go on sale until 2019.

Hot on the heels of the Leaf’s premiere yesterday, rumor has it Nissan will adapt its hardware for a fully electric SUV. Autocar has it on good authority the model in question will premiere as early as next month at the Tokyo Motor Show, but the actual launch won’t take place sooner than 2019. This leads us to believe we will first see a concept rather than the final production model.

If true, this is good move. Afterall there is no inexpensive EV SUV in the market. Tesla Model Y won't be here for 3+ years.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017
Volt : 3/25/2017 to ?

The latter is set to use a 40-kWh battery pack, with an optional 60-kWh version to follow.

This is what Nissan needs to be doing. If they do follow through with this, then this will have been the earth-shattering announcement they made on the 5th.

My guess is unless the SUV is A Bolt clone it will probably be an epower candidate
