As well as the standard 24kWh Leaf we can now supply the longer range 30kWh Leaf. As the name implies, the battery is 25% larger so it has about 25% more range. Nissan says:
With an NEDC range of up to 124 miles (LEAF 24kWh) or up to 155 miles (LEAF 30kWh), it’s easily enough to cover most people’s needs.
We’d say this is optimistic and suggest the standard 24kWh Leaf has a range of 60-90 miles, and the new 30kWh model has a range of 70-110 miles. Anyway, it clearly has a significant improvement in range and we would recommend the 30kWh model to most customers.
If you want to know more we have collected a number of public reviews here.
