A post on Reddit claims that the longer range LEAF will be out around mid-January:

The EV expert at my local Nissan says he has training scheduled for Jan 16th in regards to the longer range Leaf and claims it will be out about the same time.

The 2018 LEAF was revealed on 9/5/2017. http://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa/ ... issan-leaf

Perhaps there will be a 2019 LEAF reveal around that time this year, which is a week from today.

Yes, I was tempted by the incentives to buy a 2018 Leaf, but last week the dealer told me that production had stopped (I inferred around the end of July), and I prefer not to buy a car that has been sitting on hot asphalt for a few weeks, possibly fully charged. So I've decided to wait for the 2019 40 kWh version.


FYI I just bought a '18 SL with a production date of August 16th FYI. No clue beyond that date of course.

Mine was on the lot for only 6 days before I bought it with 1 mile on the odometer & the dealer this time of year sees avg high temps of around 70-80F so all of that hopefully means the pack will be in best case shape! My OBDII adaptor arrives today so I can grab baseline LeafSpy numbers.
2018 SL Pearl White, LOVE ProPilot Currently at 4.1-4.5 miles/kwh as I learn to drive pure EV & the weather gets colder.

Sept 2018: AHr= 114.52 / SOH= 99.2 / HX= 99.70% / 14 mV cell delta

2013 Prius 2, 126K & still really enjoy the car

Guessing you will be at 99.66% SOH give or take a 10th.

As far as battery improvements; incremental at best.

no other real changes likely which includes QC profile, TMS profile (rapidgate) or BMS profile (80% or ANYTHING other than full charging)
2011 SL; 44,598 miles. 2013 S; 44,840 miles.2016 S30 deceased. 29,413 miles. 2018 S40; 11,987 miles, 485 GIDs, 37.6 kwh 110.89 Ahr , SOH 96.00, Hx 115.22

According to a Japanese language website, the longer range LEAF will be at the LA Auto Show on 11/26-29.

One can hope...

Guess I'll be watching LA then. I can't wait to see what Nissan brings to the table.

Small piece on the new e-plus talking about projected prices and dealers orders guide.
Interesting to note they refer to a 60 kWh battery whilst most reports I have seen are universal in assuming its 64 kWh.

Link: https://www.thetorquereport.com/nissan/ ... a-premium/

German Nissan dealer Facebook group is reporting details about the e-plus to be revealed by the end of October with order books being opened at the same time. Production to start soon after with a mid January in dealers time frame. We shall see...

I've never paid any attention to 64 kWh rumors. It probably came from these guys: https://pushevs.com/2017/12/29/nissan-s ... mpetition/, which is mostly rumor, as far as I'm concerned. Who knows how many of their claims about the OBC wattage, LG Chem, thermal management, etc. will come true? I think they lifted the pic at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... ater&ifg=1. I was present at the EVent where the slide was shown.

Given the Bolt has a 60 kWh battery and 238 mile EPA range rating while the slide shows 225+ miles for '19 Leaf, 60 kWh seems like a safe assumption. Why would it be 64?

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

An interesting idea someone put up on a European EV forum a couple of weeks ago that might be of interest to people on this site. Someone suggested that Nissan would keep a small interest in their battery manufacturing operations so that in the future, when Nissan moves to a new design battery etc, it can be made under licence in the Nissan partnership factories. This would alleviate any potential battery supply problems and also solve some potential logistical obstacles. The factories are all alongside or on the same factories that manufacture the Leaf. I thought it was an interesting idea that had merit.
