Redline Reviews Checks Out Nissan LEAF e+ At CES: Video
The world would look different if the e+ was ready two years ago.
Redline Reviews was one of the first who took a look on the new Nissan LEAF e+ at CES.
The Japanese electric flagship received a 62 kWh battery for up to 364 km (226 miles) of expected EPA range. Additionally, it gets a 160 kW electric motor and increased charging power to 70 kW (100 kW peak).
The main change inside is the bigger infotainment screen (8-inch) and newer software. Redline Reviews noticed also that the floor seems to be raised a little bit because of the new battery.
