In a recent interview, Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn quietly revealed something huge about the next model of the Nissan Leaf, according to the Tokyo-based website Daily Kanban. Ghosn apparently claims that an upcoming model of the Leaf would have a 249-mile range.
To compare, current Nissan Leaf models just barely crack an 80-mile range. This would be huge for the company, which explains why it might be keeping the details under wraps for as long as possible.
Ghosn said the 249-range Leaf model “could be no more than one model cycle away,” meaning it would have to be one of the very next Nissan Leaf models. This would be serious competition for the Tesla Model S, with Nissan holding a significant price advantage.
We at Nissan of Lake Charles are astounded to hear about this 249-mile range Nissan Leaf and are hopeful it could be true. While this miraculous Nissan Leaf has yet to even be confirmed, we have many current Leaf models here at our dealership for you to take home.
