Nissan LEAF e+ Image Overload & Videos Galore

Nissan LEAF e+ is simply the best LEAF yet

Nissan LEAF e+ had its big day with an unveiling in Yokohama, Japan at Nissan‘s global headquarters and a parallel presentation at the 2019 CES.

We are cautiously optimistic about the latest version, which soon will enter sales in Japan, then also in the U.S. and Europe.

After all the iterations and upgrades since 2010 it actually seems to be a very mature product – the best LEAF so far. It has more range, more power and even will charge at higher power. If only the battery stays healthy without liquid cooling (time will tell) e+ has a strong chance. The main weaker point will be the availability of CHAdeMO, but Nissan doesn’t have high requirements for ultra-fast chargers – 100 kW chargers will be enough.

The new version must last a few years until Nissan whas some kind of all-new platform for all the upcoming new BEVs from Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance (we assume that this is the case).

Now let’s check all the images and videos on the new LEAF e+ (LEAF PLUS in North America).

Quick Charge? Hardly at 70 KW rates !! And beware states like AZ, Utah, Southern California. That heat will make toast of the Leaf battery as it has all the earlier ones.

A welcome upgrade, hopefully batteries will stay reasonably healthy with proper care (now that we know they’re passive/air cooled). Though I don’t have need for more than the 40 kWh I’m currently driving. Hopefully Nissan will stay serious about the LEAF and EVs in general and introduce more and improved models with better thermal management and DCFC-capabilities since that’s about the only caveat with this car.

Nissan has said on the record that they have 4 all-electric Nissans and 2 Infinitis coming, so I don’t think they’ll limit their EV work to Leaf updates.

(I strongly suspect that at least one of those Infinitis will be that brand’s version of a Nissan model, which leads to speculation of whether we’ll see a Rogue/QX50 EV. That would be potentially a huge product in the rEVolution.)

The car to home tech really differentiates the LEAF from the rest. Even though it is hardly used tech at the moment. Maybe someone considering a Tesla Powerwall may consider putting a second hand LEAF up on the wall..

The 500 km a day example shows again that Nissan strongly advises NOT to do multiple rapid charges in one day. Sad story. An electric car should not be so compromised in its abilities.

I still hope they sell a lot. A bigger battery still means less cycles for the same mileage, so I have hope battery life also improves with this version.

I think it was TeslaBjorn that did a 2018 Leaf road test where despite -7C ambient temps, the Leaf he was driving still had its battery temps spike to as high as 47C during charging stops. The Leaf’s battery enclosure might as well be an oven!

I want my home to have this car.

It’s definitely better looking than the original leaf. If the batteries do stay healthy, I might lean towards this instead of a second Model 3 just due to the integration with Apple Music.

No TMS. No Care.

Interesting info about the battery supplier : after 2 days ago on the CES fair the Nissan technical director told Electrek that the new battery supplier is LG-Chem — now Electrive talked to the Nissan spokesperson to learn that it’s still AESC !!!

>”” The battery cells for the new Nissan Leaf with a larger battery continue to come from AESC. Nissan spokesman Jeff Wandell last night rejected reports that LG Chem cells are used in the 62 kWh battery. “”<

Additional info from Germany: The Leaf 2.1 (62 KWh gross battery) will be only offered as limited edition with 5,000 units (46,500 Euro), while the regular Leaf 2.0 (40 KWh gross) will be still offered as standard version without quantity restriction for 40,300 Euro.
