Nissan has announced Canadian pricing of $43,998 for the 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus, a new addition to the popular Nissan Leaf electric vehicle lineup.
The “Plus” designation refers to the increased energy density of the model’s 62 kWh battery pack and the higher 214 hp output of its powertrain (versus the standard 40 kWh Nissan Leaf).
The new Nissan Leaf Plus powertrain adds to the car’s range by approximately 50 per cent with an NRCan range of up to 363 km (versus the standard 40 kWh 2019 Nissan Leaf 243 km range), ensuring that there’s a Nissan Leaf to meet the driving needs of a wider range of customers.
The new powertrain also allows faster acceleration when driving at high speeds, accelerating nearly 13 per cent quicker than the standard Nissan LEAF.
This allows the Nissan Leaf Plus to confidently pass slower-moving vehicles, exit corners faster and more seamlessly, and merge easily with fast-moving traffic.
The top speed has increased by approximately 10 per cent for comfortable cruising.
In addition, thanks a standard new 100 kW capacity quick charging system, the 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus can charge more efficiently.
There is an addition destination and handling fee of $1,950.
