And if this means a "real world" range of 130 to 150 miles, .
That was from a over a year ago and was definitely not a promise of anything. And, Andy Palmer went to Aston Martin later that year (https://www.astonmartin.com/en-us/live/ ... ton-martin).
To date, Nissan has announced NOTHING on the official ranges or battery capacity of ANY future Leafs. They wouldn't even comment on the 30 kWh battery '16 Leaf news: http://insideevs.com/2016-nissan-leaf-g ... r-battery/.
