Customers have been waiting for Nissan to offer them a Leaf with a much longer range and also a new exterior design but those updates never really did arrive. Well, new rumors are now suggesting that Nissan was holding back because they are working to get the Nissan Leaf to run on a PHEV engine.
This rumor started after Nissan unveil their new e-Power a PHEV powertrain. Nissan did not specifically say that the engine will be used to power up the Nissan Leaf but people seems to believe that it would.
