Model Preview

The Nissan LEAF is expected to be a carryover for the 2019 model year. The most noteworthy addition is expected to be an extended-range variant called the E-Plus with a range of over 200 miles.

Currently in its second generation, the LEAF introduced an all-new design last year with an updated powertrain featuring a 40 kWh lithium-ion battery and range of up to 150 miles.

That represented a nice improvement over the previous generation's 84 mile range with the 24 kWh battery or 107 mile threshold with the 30 kWh option introduced back in 2016.

Unlike its predecessor, the LEAF features an innovative "e-pedal" option, a setup that enables single-pedal driving by making use of friction and regenerative braking to slow the car via less pedal pressure.

For 2019, buyers are expected to get a new extended-range variant offering more range. According to Auto Guide, Nissan plans to introduce a new variant called the E-Plus with over 200 hp and a possible range of over 200 miles.

Unfortunately, Nissan has not yet released official specs for the 2019 LEAF. It remains to be seen whether or not the car will be able to top the Chevy Bolt's maximum range of 238 miles, or the 220 to 310 range of the Tesla Model 3.

Pricing and Release Date

A release date has not yet been announced for the 2019 Nissan LEAF. Interestingly, production estimates have not yet been posted despite being available for the rest of the lineup. This could signal a delayed release.

Official pricing has not yet been released. For reference, the 2018 LEAF ranges from $30,875 including destination to $37,085 before any options or incentives. Like most EVs, the LEAF is eligible for a federal tax credit and local offers like the California Clean Vehicle Rebate (CVRP).

Competitors include the Chevrolet Bolt EV, Ford Focus Electric, and Tesla Model 3.
