Nissan Leaf Plus Offers 226 Miles Of Range For $36,550

The longer range Nissan Leaf Plus will arrive at US dealers later this month with a base price of $36,550.

Costing $6,560 more than the standard Leaf, the Leaf Plus has a larger 62 kWh battery which enables the model to travel up to 226 miles (363 km) on a single charge. This is 76 miles (122 km) more than the standard model and it should help to alleviate any lingering range anxiety.

Besides the longer range, the Leaf Plus features an upgraded powertrain that produces 214 hp (159 kW / 217 PS) and 250 lb-ft (338 Nm) of torque. This is 67 hp (50 kW / 68 PS) and 14 lb-ft (19 Nm) more than the standard Leaf.

Three different trim levels will be available and the base model has Bio Suede PET upholstery, a six-speaker audio system and an 8-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. The entry-level model also has cruise control, power windows / locks and an automatic climate control system. Rounding out the highlights are 16-inch alloy wheels and a rearview camera.

The mid-level Leaf Plus SV starts at $38,510 and it adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel, intelligent cruise control and an 8-inch NissanConnect infotainment system with GPS navigation. The car also has an HD radio, fog lights and 17-inch alloy wheels.

The range-topping Leaf Plus SL begins at $42,550 but it comes nicely equipped with heated leather front seats, a heated leather steering wheel and an 8-way power driver’s seat. The model also has an auto-dimming rearview mirror, HomeLink and a seven-speaker Bose premium audio system. Other additions include LED headlights and heated exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals.

The perks don’t end there as the Leaf Plus SL comes standard with an assortment of safety systems. These include High Beam Assist, ProPILOT Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Intelligent Lane Intervention and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. The model also has a Blind Spot Warning system and an Intelligent Around View Monitor.

Note: Prices exclude an $895 destination and handling fee

    and why would i buy this when i could buy model 3 for roughly the same coin?

      It’ll eventually be a really good deal once people buy them and put some mileage on them. You can get used Nissan Leafs for a fraction of what they are brand new. The resale value on those things are hilariously sad.

        It was sad then and is sad now. LEAF is still on the hind teat.

    I compelling offer if you want something from a bigger automaker, but the interior is worse, it’s slower, and the driving dynamics are far worse. I did try to get my fried to buy one though a while back. She bought a Rogue instead 🙄

    NOT TO MENTION NO THERMAL BATTERY PROTECTION.

      No history of them catching fire in vast numbers though.

        No history of “vast” numbers anywhere in the industry…except for ICE cars.

  • StrangerGP

    The pricing is really unattractive considering how the competititon stepped up their game.

    can you buy model 3 for $35000?
    NNNNOOOOO
