What do you mean suggest? That plan is the Nissan keeps a 25% stake in their deal with Envision Group: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-niss ... SKBN1KO15A and https://newsroom.nissan-global.com/rele ... 80803-01-e. Unless this deal falls thru as well, like the previous one with GSR...

60-kWh Nissan LEAF Price Possibly Revealed In Dealer Documents?

https://insideevs.com/60-kwh-nissan-leaf-price/

Any guesses (before reading) what the expected US price will be for the 2019 long range Leaf?

The piece implies that the 2019 Leaf S will be available with a 60kwh option, by comparing the 60kwh car price with a base S. I doubt it, and think the price boost will be for a 60kwh SV, before any option packages. So yes, Bolt-comparable pricing. No surprise there.

Surprised by the potential cost. $5500 implies nearly $200/kWhr for the extra battery. Battery costs are lower than this, and the industry is pushing toward $100/kWhr.

Could be that the larger battery model also comes with some other extras.

I am thinking extended range available to SV/SL only which I would not like but would not surprise me.
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

Interesting article from Jalopnik https://jalopnik.com/the-long-range-nissan-leaf-e-plus-will-start-at-36-000-1829842708

“But if you are holding out for a more capable Leaf, Cars Direct cites leaked order guides in its report that the 60 kWh model will start at $36,000. An earlier report indicated it will also get a range of 225 miles. If accurate, that places the 60 kWh Leaf at about $1,500 less than the Chevy Bolt’s starting price while only lacking about a dozen miles of range.

The top of the line SL trim of the 60 kWh Leaf is reportedly around $42,000, and the introduction of the $37,000 60 kWh Leaf S will kill off the current 40 kWh Leaf SL, but lack a few of the options in exchange for longer range and more power.”

The $37,000 may be a typo as the article states the S’s MSRP at $36,000. Nothing about an active TMS.

One can hope...

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


No telling what will be there, but Nissan has indicated they are revealing a vehicle at the show. https://laautoshow.com/manufacturer/nissan

I think they will want a lot of attention when they do reveal it, so this would be a good chance to do that, in a market that is ready for longer range EVs, going into the new year.
