Nissan just came out with the IDS concept at this year's Tokyo Motor Show and it could be a preview of what their future Leaf will contain. The Original Leaf has been out for a while and it may be time for a overhaul because even the new battery pack isn't enough to make it hit the 200 mile range.
The new car will have a 60 kWh battery that is estimated to last 500 kilometers on one charge. This is all due to the new cathode developed by the Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory. Making it possible to more than double the battery power and reduce the charging time.
There's no word yet on when exactly this new Leaf will be in production but autoblog.com suggests that buyers could be seeing them in 2017 as a 2018 model.
Will you be getting the Bolt or wait for the new Leaf for comparison?
