It appears that Nissan is working hard on its next generation of electrical. The Nissan LEAF is currently a reference between this type of vehicle. In current engine we tested it with its new battery of 30 kWh which allows you to have a range of 250 kilometers. However, the next generation could be equipped with a new battery of 60 kWh. The system would be similar to that he presented with the Nissan IDS Concept.

Kazuo Yajima, director of development of electric and hybrid at Nissan, said the 60 kWh battery “will come”. Still don’t know that time, since the Steering was apologetic saying “I’m sorry, I can’t say when”. He did it in the EVS29, an event focused on the electric vehicle, which is being held this week in Montreal (Canada). In any case it is very good news the confirmation of his arrival.

One of the major concerns of the electric since their first models It has always been their limited autonomy. 60 kWh battery pack, would allegedly be able to double the capacity of the current LEAF’s 24 kWh. This is therefore an increase of its autonomy power up to 340-350 kilometres (210-220 miles). It depends on the conditions, but in any case it will be greater than the 320 kilometres.

The next generation of the Nissan LEAF so it is more closer to rivals as the newly presented Tesla Model 3 or Chevrolet Bolt (in Europe Opel Ampera-e). Yajima was also very optimistic with the future of this type of vehicles by adding “in the near future, I think that we will be able to produce an electric car that has no problems of autonomy”. You will have to wait to see if it is right or not.
