2019 Nissan Leaf is out

Nissan.ca website

Battery still shows 40 kw, but it says it can do 40% more range than 2018 model.

Also, does it come with ATM system?

Doesn't make sense the same battery capacity will go 40% further. All the rumors point to 60kwh in the top trim no?

Unless the site has not been fully updated, the range is 242 km which is the same as the 2016 (and 2018) model and the increase is over the original model. Maybe Nissan couldn't source the batteries for the hyped range increase. The 2018 brochure also claims a 40% range increase so perhaps there is no change.

Nissan website sucks. No info on the range (only gives efficiency), no battery warranty info. Chevrolet has both range and battery info. And don't know about you, but I really don't care about the fuel efficiency equivalent, I just care to be told the range city/hwy

It's there if you dig into around.

Maybe the bigger battery will find ts way into a 19 1/2 model.

And you really have to dig around for the battery warranty. None for the '19 Leaf yet but here's the 2018's

LOL no way. As others said, it probably means over previous gen leaf 2017 and under, or 60kw Leaf VS 40kw

I saw one driving next to me over the weekend, looks nice. Too bad about the range not being closer to Tesla m3 or Chevy bolt

Ignore the website, the EPA rated range on the 2019 LEAF S/SV/SL is still 242km - easily beatable in real life unless you drive like a maniac.

The new e-Plus option package (coming in 2019) will have a 60kWh battery, it will also be priced around $50k. Basically Bolt pricing for Bolt range and power. Not sure why everyone is so excited to spend $50k on a LEAF when the 40kWh battery is perfectly passable at $42k ($30k after the current Ontario incentive is subtracted)? The Bolt has been out for quite a while (with a $14k Ontario incentive) if you had that kind of cash to spend to get 60kWh.

I had a 2015 Nissan LEAF (amazing vehicle) and now have a BMW i3 and a Tesla Model 3. For the money, the 2018 LEAF SV with the incentive is hands down the best car in Ontario out of ALL vehicles - gas or electric. That being said, at $50k for the e-Plus (no incentive for deliveries taken after September 10th), the base Model 3 is coming next year and will have about 300km range priced around $47k - it'll be a stripper model, so don't get too excited. If you want things like a paint colour other than black and heated seats and other stuff, options add up quickly.

Looks like Ontario people are getting the news late.
the later 2019 Leaf will be available with the 60 kw battery.
Base model battery is the same 40 Kw. To get the 60 kw you'll roughly pay 10k more.

I may be wrong, but I believe it's an averange of the summer and winter range.
I do 295km in summer (at the moment) so during winter I should probably do around 175-185 with the heat.
Therefore, 242 range is about right.

Just checked, 2019 will still have same kwh battery as 2018.

Maybe 2020 will include 60 kwh

For Ontario are these still worth it without the incentives that were taken out?
