2018 LEAF EV boasts a 241-kilometre driving range.
Nissan has announced that the next-generation LEAF will go on sale in early 2018 at all 97 Nissan electric vehicle certified dealerships in Canada.
“When we launched LEAF in 2010, it instantly became the most affordable, mass market EV in the world. We are not walking away from that proposition,” said José Muñoz, Chief Performance Officer, Nissan Motor and Chairman, Nissan North America. “The value equation for the new LEAF is even stronger than ever before – beginning with a starting MSRP of $35,998. That includes more power, range and technology, all wrapped in a beautiful new exterior and interior design.”
The new 2018 LEAF features a 241-kilometre driving range, and is the first step in the re-launch of Nissan’s EV platform. Nissan says it will be followed in model year 2019 with a high-power version with increased motor power and battery capacity with a price premium.
In Canada, the Nissan LEAF offers a weather package fitted as standard which includes: heated front and rear seats; heated steering wheel and battery heater. A Level 1/Level 2 (120v/240v) charger cable is also standard in Canada.
