This page says the next Leaf redesign will have a 37.44kWh battery:

The eGolf has a 35.8kWh battery, 119 MPGe & gets an EPA rating of 125 miles.
The Ioniq has a ~31.1kWh battery (28kWh usable as advertised), 136 MPGe & gets an EPA rating of 124 miles.
The current Leaf gets 112 MPGe, but we can safely assume the newer model will increase its efficiency.
If the new Leaf matches the Bolt's & eGolfs efficiency of 119 MPGe, the range will be around 130.7 miles. If the new Leaf can match the Ioniq's efficiency, the range will be around 149.3 miles.
Doubtful the Leaf will be able to match Ioniq's efficiency, for at least the heavier battery it will have to lug around. The current model only gets 112 MPGe, so an increase to 120-125 MPGe is likely their target.
I predict the next Leaf will then have an EPA range of 134 miles.
If pricing stays roughly the same, expect a ~$30.7k MSRP bare-bones version (without a heat pump, heated seats or fast charging, as is with the current lowest model). Those features will all be standard on the Ioniq with an MSRP of ~$30.0k, but it will have slightly less range. The eGolf has worse efficiency / range (of the LEAF) & fewer standard features at likely a same price point.
What do you think of this prediction & how it may compare against the competition?
