We were all expecting Nissan to give the Nissan Leaf a major upgrade. In fact, fans of the Nissan Leaf have been begging Nissan to upgrade the Leaf giving it a new design as well as a larger battery with a much longer range but it look like that is not going to be happening this year.
Nissan has just revealed what the 2017 Nissan Leaf will be offering and we got to say, we are a little disappointed. The 30kilowatt hour battery pack will now be offered as standard on all models but that is the only major upgrade we will be getting.
Without a battery upgrade, the Nissan Leaf will still be offering about 107miles of range with its 107hp and 187lb ft of torque engine.
Nissan has also just unveiled their new Nissan e-Power hybrid powertrain. According to Nissan, the powertrain will be offered on the upcoming Nissan Note e-Power. The powertrain will come with a gasoline engine. The reason the gasoline engine is there is so that it can generate power to charge the battery. Some people believe that this might be what the Nissan Leaf could be getting in the future. What do you think?
