The new Nissan LEAF PLUS pricing starts at $36,550 and goes on sale at Nissan retailers nationwide this month.
The “PLUS” designation refers to the increased energy density of the model’s 62 kWh battery pack and the higher 214-horsepower output of its powertrain versus the 40 kWh option.
The new Nissan LEAF S PLUS powertrain adds to the car’s range by approximately 50 percent with an EPA range of up to 226 miles (versus the standard 2019 Nissan LEAF 150 mile range), ensuring that there’s a Nissan LEAF to meet the driving needs of a wider range of customers.
“With the addition of LEAF PLUS, the Nissan LEAF is now available with two battery options and a choice of six trim levels – each featuring the many advanced technologies offered under the banner of Nissan Intelligent Mobility,” said Brian Marango, director, EV Sales and Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc.
Offering a dynamic design and advanced technologies such as ProPILOT Assist and ePedal, the LEAF PLUS also features standard Rear Door Alert (RDA), a system that can help remind customers of items that may be forgotten in the rear seat.
There are also subtle clues to the LEAF’s PLUS designation, including a revised front fascia with blue highlights and an e+ logo plate on the underside of the charge port lid. Also included is rear trim level badges designating the grade levels as S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS.
Every 2019 Nissan LEAF PLUS is offered with a limited warranty covering defects in materials or workmanship for eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first, for the lithium-ion battery pack. Nissan also provides a limited warranty against battery capacity loss below nine bars of capacity as shown on the vehicle’s battery capacity level gauge for the first eight years or 100,000 miles for all models.
The 2019 Nissan LEAF PLUS is offered in three well-equipped grade levels: S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS. The 2019 Nissan LEAF is also available in three 40 kWh grades – S, SV and SL.
The Nissan LEAF is the best-selling electric vehicle in the world with more than 390,000 global sales and over 130,000 U.S. sales since its 2010 debut.
