Nissan brings us real progress in the EV game. Nissan teased the new Leaf yesterday at their shareholder conference. Ghosen said it has “new materials and chemistry solutions in order to make thinner, lighter weight and less costly batteries.”

Nissans tech cheif Hideyuki Sakamoto also said the new Leaf will come with “a driving range equivalent to that of an ICE. The charging time also will be much shorter.”

Nissan is claiming 400 km as the new range, nothing on charging time as of yet.

Late last year, Ghosn promised on Japanese TV that in a few years, Nissan will come out with a range-doubling battery that will provide more than 400 kilometers according to the notoriously optimistic Japanese test cycle. Yesterday, Nissan’s stockholders were shown a video where a Nissan Leaf driver leaves the house with 417 kilometers range on the display, and after a day of scenic drives, he returns home with more than 200 km left.
So it sounds like the 400km is in ideal conditions, but still that is a pretty good range to be offering at this point.

Charge time is on the minds of a lot of folks, since the last thing you'd want is to have some long charge time hold you back from going where you need to go.

Thats 250 miles, no one in the league has been able to get close to that... all EV ranges are reported in 'ideal' conditions. Even Tesla yes...

The 2017 Chevy Bolt will pass 250 miles of range

GM BEVs are undervalued and overengineered. Several owners of the 2014 Chevy Spark EV, with a EPA rated 80 miles of range, has passed 100 miles under regular use (a 25% improvement), and one owner reached 139 miles. The engineers testing the Chevy Bolt Ev has reported passing the 200 mile range. I bet that under ideal conditions (low city speeds, good weather) the 2017 Bolt EV will reach and pass 250 miles of range.

So the Bolt EV will satisfy any driver who wants to go gas-free by 2017, and have a year headstart over the TM Model 3 which will be sold excluvisely to TM fans. It will cost more than the Nissan Leaf but you pay more for GM quality!!:)
