Nissan’s Electric Crossover Rumored To Have 220 Mile Range And $45,000 Price Tag

Nissan unveiled the IMx KURO concept at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year and it appears the model could eventually spawn a production variant.

Citing a “highly credible and well-informed source,” CleanTechnica is reporting that Nissan is working on an electric crossover that would have a range of approximately 220 miles (354 km). That’s a significant improvement over the Leaf’s 150 mile (241 km) range and isn’t too far off from the Tesla Model X 75D which has an EPA-estimated range of 237 miles (381 km).

Despite the having a Tesla-like range, Nissan’s crossover would be significantly more affordable. While the aforementioned Model X starts at $83,000 (including a $1,200 destination fee), the electric Nissan is rumored to have a target price of $45,000. That’s nearly $15,000 more than the entry-level Leaf, but it would likely become one of the most affordable electric crossovers on the market.

Little else is known about the model, but the publication’s source said the crossover is roughly the same size as the Lexus RX. The crossover is also rumored to have slab-sided styling, a panoramic roof and a “transparent” grille with an illuminated Nissan logo.

The crossover is also said to have a “very upscale” interior with special upholstery and an “elongated screen [which spans] from in front of the driver to around the middle of the passenger seat.” The latter item sound similar to the wraparound screen that was featured in the Xmotion concept.

There’s no word on performance specifications or a timeline, but it’s likely the model will be heavily influenced by the Leaf. The source also suggested the company hasn’t decided whether or not to sell the model as a Nissan or an Infiniti. However, the report suggests the both brands could potentially receive a version of the crossover.
