The next-gen Nissan Leaf has received its official range rating from the EPA. Their measurement confirms Nissan’s own data and positions the electric car in the medium-range EV sector. On top, Nissan released a new configurator.
The EPA has released the official range for Nissan’s new Leaf. 243 kilometres or 151 miles equals claims made by the Japanese carmaker. Nissan had set the range of the new 40 kWh battery pack to 150 miles.
Only efficiency, measured as MPGe for the average distance traveled per unit of energy consumed has not improved with the 2018 Leaf, according to EPA. It receives the same 112 MPGe as the Leaf with a 30 kWh battery pack.
But then there is value for money and in the States, the new Leaf is listed for 29,900 dollars. The new configurator has gone live online. The highest trim level hits at 36,200 dollars. Range however, is the same for any configuration as is motor output.
