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.

Do you think your source will have any information now? There were some posts in this thread saying production may have been scheduled to start in October. Most of the information here is unofficial/conjecture, so just wondering if a real source might have some information.

If the e-Plus isn't on the horizon, I need a serious Plan B. Thanks for any info on the e-Plus.

@eplus I seem to recall you live in Canada. If so, we are definitely getting the Hyundai Kona Electric and probably the Kia Niro EV too. The Kona has received so many positive reviews. If I were in the market for a new EV, that's definitely the car I would buy

I am in North America but one country south of CA ;) Either way, I would consider the 2 SUVs if they are available in a month or 2, but have my heart set on a LEAF, if it's at all possible.

I've driven a 2018 and really thought it stood on its own in comparison to the Model 3, which I drove beforehand the same day. With all the top 5 or 10 lists that have the LEAF on it (in a good way), it seems like a winner, if only the range were 200+.
